The vast bulk of my liberal buddies would agree that my beliefs put me as the poster child for the title of this blog site. Greedy and Unenlightened
There is a stark contrast between the important things that I think and that of the so-called progressive camp.
Here are two differences.
Greedy and Unenlightened.
I’m greedy and unenlightened due to the fact that I believe in the power of the individual. I think that we can all accomplish our dreams and objectives if we are willingwant to put in the time and energy to make those things occur.
Will we get or request aid along the method?– Absolutely– Simply not permanently.
To the liberal precinct that translates to– I am self-centered and uncompassionate to those less fortunate. I don’t offer a hoot about the bad or disadvantaged.
The huddled masses yearning to breathe totally free can pound sand.
The Income Ladder
I have actually existed at all rungs on the earnings ladder and I understand that no matter what sounded I was clingingholding on to there was always someone clinging to a called below me.
But I also understand that at one time I was sticking to that same lower rung they are.
Does it benefit me to offer up some resources and drop down to the lower sounded with them?
Does both of us being poor benefit either people?
Or, should I motivate the person below me to climb up to my rung?
The latter causes me no financial pain and, at the exact same time, eases a few of the financial pain of the person below me.
Now were equivalent– not enabler and allowed.
What if we both encouraged another to go up to our sounded? Or somebody above the 2 people is motivating us to increase to their sounded?
What if somebody was boiling down the ladder? Would it assist if we could stop their good at our called?
Who would be harmed and who would be assistedaided with these incentives?
Generous and Progressive
This is the left side of the aisle. They desire a share of what I make. Theyre not self-centered however appear to want the very same or more material items that I have.
That’s what earnings inequality really is. I want what you have actually got.
So to puts it simply I have more material things than they do so it’s unfair for me to have more material things than they do but since I have worked for and gotten those material products on my own– I’m the bad man.
And while they state the quest for material goods is greedy and unenlightened and are not essentialtrivial to them they seem to want them anyhow with no effort on their part due to the fact that they are generous and progressive.
So I end up being less, so they can stay where they are, with more things.
Some Last Thoughts
Would you make your next-door neighbors house payment if you understood doing so would cost you your very own home? Probably not, so that would make you wise however — Greedy and Unenlightened.
What if you could manage to make your neighbors house payment and your own payment as well? Now we’re talking generous and progressive.
We’re helping someone. The length of time would you help that next-door neighbor and exactly what would be their incentive to make their own payments in the future?– None.
Yes, we’re assisting someone. Simply not helping them assist themselves.
Sooner or later on well either cut the cable or ship them off to the next privilege program to continue the undisturbed home payments theyve grown so fond of.
This is where we discover ourselves. Under the guise of helping others efficient in assisting themselves we damage society as a whole.
So I mean to stay greedy and unenlightened and motivate others to increase to my called on that greedy and unenlightened income ladder– not for me to drop to their rung.
However if I must drop to a lower sounded Ill do what Ive constantly done when that happened. I will be looking up– not down.
What say you ??
