It’s hard to say that you failed because you do the right thing. The right thing are things that lead to successful outcome.
Say someone put gun on your head. Say you know that you can kill him because you have a secret pen gun on your wallet. Yet you didn’t kill that robber. You can’t say you get robbed because you did the right thing. Not killing the robber is the wrong thing.
The same way if your country is unfair, you always have choice. You can leave the country, or you can join the corrupt ranks of the tyrant cronies. Either case you have a choice. We can explain to the mass that too much deviation from meritocratic free market rules is just going to mess us up.
We can tolerate some deviation. However, to a certain extend, once it goes to far, we should consider simply leaving to a more just country or simply take advantage of all the injustice the bad rules do.
Evil are often a necessary counter against another evil. Fairness are simply the right balance between those evil. We humans are the smartest species on this planet. There is nothing smarter beside us, except probably God that most likely will not interfere.
No body can fuck us up unless we first fuck our self up. – Sun Tzu (not exact quotation)
Perhaps the irony of all these greedy selfishness is that quite often the world become a better place not due to morale, but due to greedy selfish capitalistic bastards.
The most productive way to pursue wealth is through capitalism. Now all capitalists in the world will want ALL countries to be richer because the more countries are richer, the more choice all capitalists have.
When that work, wouldn’t that be a victory for freedom and capitalism over all others.
Remember, concentrate on what we want and what we can do and we’ll end up achieving much more.
When I have a son I’ll name him Gayus. National hero that saves our capitalists from socialistic oppression. He even willingly go to jail for it. What a sacrifice. Just like Jesus got crucified for our sin, Gayus go to jail to ransom for many. It’s just the way the system work that somebody has to pay up for those who sin. That payer is Gayus. May all that he helped remember what he have done.
From penicillin to flat TV, none of those are made by altruists. Those are made by greedy capitalists wanting more profit. And all of us are profited too.
How can you be so cold hearted?
There are so many evil people in the world.
There are thieves, burglars, robbers, and murderers. There are taxes. There are those who NEVER work for me and yet get my money anyway. There are commies that get YOUR money by screaming how evil YOU are.
And yet there are these employees that worked for me diligently allowing me to do bigger things. And they want to steal my idea? Ideas I have in abundance? And I am going to get mad at them?
Maybe this is why capitalists ended up getting screwed by governments and everyone. We’re too weak because we don’t have friends. We don’t have friends because we are too stingy to those that are helping us.
When a person work for me for long, I would make generous deals with them. If they can take over my biz and share me something, I’ll be glad. I can move on to other things. That programmer now start earning way more. Bigger than what he would earn had he work for other boss.
Just like I want to avenge vermins that screw my money, so I want to benefit those that benefit me, including those that do it out of their selfish interest. Yes it’s win win. But I still want to be nice to them.
I thought the bible told us not to bother picking grains that are left over when we harvest crops. Let the poor have it.
Business ideas and systems are like crops. We can only take so much. So many biz ideas I can only use 1 or 2 at most. Pick the best one. Let the poor “work” on the rest so the world become prosperous.
That’s the true spirit of capitalism. Share abundance and get abundance in return.
I still hate commies. They want my money? Work!!!!! And stop bullshitting the world that free trade or free sex is evil.
And to think that because I can do something others can do that too is a serious understatement of my capability
Teggie, the rule of thumb is that if you (meaning anyone) can do something – lots of other people can do it quicker, better and more effectively.
Just got to keep moving and cover your ass.
