Well in capitalism “hard work” translates as YOU work MORE for LESS PAY.
Even better: you work WITHOUT ANY PAYMENT AT ALL.
Would you do that?
Of course not – you would defacto enslave yourself and society would be catapulted back into Roman midevel times where slavery was “normal”.
Investor Carl Icahn: “We have this tremendous wealth gap that will lead to a populist movement”
“corporate America is really like feudalism – it is much more similar to feudalism than a democracy. They even use metaphors for it”
“think of the CEO and the board as the feudal lord – they surround themselves with mercenaries (lawyers) to protect them – barons (investment bankers) ”
What is Feudalism?
“Feudalism was a combination of legal and military customs in medieval Europe that flourished between the 9th and 15th centuries.
Broadly defined, it was a way of structuring society around relationships derived from the holding of land in exchange for service or labour.” (src: Wikipedia)
Hard work is good if it actually helps you towards YOUR goal.
But if the goal of others are:
- to enslave you
- keep the value of a FIAT (printed colorful paper and digits on harddisks) currency such as USD and EUR UP (no intrinsic value, only psychological value)
Instead of working for money to buy food – access to land assumed – you could grow it directly.
At some point of exploitation – this will be less work than via the monetary system – despite the monetary system having all this hyper efficient machines and automations plus: it gives you true INDEPENDENCE.
