More Peter Schiff Vs. The Barbarians

People are filled with vanity. Vanity defines people. People tell themselves pretty lies, to convince themselves they're superior to other people.

Case in point: The first guy's contention that "There is a thing called greed." He offers this as an insult to Peter Schiff. Later another guy gets into the "greed" thing too.

Both of these men seem to claim themselves to be virtuous, claiming they only want "simple things." Simple, materialistic things.

Here's a question for these guys:

When I work -- when I work, sporadic though that is lately -- I do so primarily for money.

Why do you guys work? (I mean, "you guys" as in "the guys in this video."

Altruism? You just show up for your jobs, and would do so, whether paid or not, because you're dedicated to doing work on behalf of others?

Hmmm... I sort of doubt that. I think you guys (again, the guys in this video) are working for the same reason as Peter Schiff: Money. Which is, in turn, simply a convenient unit of exchange for the most precious commodity in the world: Time.

When you buy a loaf of bread, you are giving up some of your time, in the convenient unit of exchange called money, by which you were paid for your time, for someone else's time.

This is why virtually everybody works. (Except for that blessed, tiny cadre of people who literally love their jobs and do their jobs almost entirely because they so enjoy it.)

So, these guys work for themselves. When they are compensated for the time they spend at work, they put that money into their pockets, and spend it on themselves (or their families).

And yet the self-deluded, entitled OWS crowd are absolutely insistent on the idea that other peopleshould spend large amounts of time working for the benefit of the OWS parasites.

Imagine walking up to any of these people on the street and ordering them: Come back to my house and clean my gutters, for free, because I want you to dedicate your time towards making my life easier.

Can you imagine the shock? The outrage?

And yet here at OWS these miscreants proudly proclaim that's what they want others to do. They want the productive people in society to mark off blocks of hours, days, and weeks to use their time working for their own selfish ends.

How many hours of our time -- we, who work -- do you who do not work think you are owed per week? How many hours per month do you believe we should dedicate towards supporting you?

FYNQ.
