If you could think you'd know what I've written before. Not everyone should be paid the same.
Howe ...

Doesn't that billionaire have vastly more responsibility? Is this not worth being paid so much?
If he didn't make decisions that made profits, how many people may be out of work and how many households, as a result, would suffer, not to mention the taxes paid by the corporation, the billionaire and the workers?
Think of the workers who build the items that these people buy. What about their livelihoods?

It's a trickle down effect, for sure, but a negative one when we factor in your equations and thoughts.

It's kind of like the equation; the productivity of one (billionaire) affects the productivity of many (workers). They both need each other or neither group has anything, right?

God you are stupid. Only from the mind of the brainwashed.
All you really can accept in your little mind is that government is bad and rich people are good.
It's been taught to you since you were a little kid and you never bothered to question this.
The rich have plenty of money to keep stooges like you do their advertising.
Don't worry too much. Ignorance is bliss.
If capitalism promotes innovation and creativity then why aren't scientists and artists the richest people in a capitalist nation?

i've never claimed that the system is perfect but the one we have is vastly better than your version of a socialist utopia.

At least, with the system we have, those who make the effort and take the risks are rewarded. In socialism, where is this true? Should the rich have to pay for the poor?
I can agree in as much as we all have a human responsibility to help those who need it but according to need and ability. This shouldn't, however, mean that those who are wealthier need give everything to those with little or none. If this was the case, the wealthy would soon be broke and the poor would still have little to nothing. Is this what you advocate?

What is so stupid about this simple rule of economics? The wealth creators are a necessary evil in order to ensure that the majority have what they need. Unfortunately, some get left far behind but then, how many people win all the time?

You are so naive. I couldn't finish reading your silly little argument. The only utopian views here are from
you capitalist stooges who think that if you work hard enough you will be rich some day.
In a social society there are no rich to sponge off the hard work of the poor.
The only reason socialism and communism have trouble is because the filthy rich of the well armed
western nations make damned sure they are not successful. But things are changing.

Now, if you want to see propaganda, look no further than your own post.

Robbo, we're ideologically, poles apart. Best you quit because I will never change and you can talk yourself hoarse and I'll still think that you're an unmitigated moron!

An brainwashed capitalist stooge will always look upon the truth as threatening.
That's what's been so carefully taught to you since you were a little kid.

No, I can think for myself and see the realities. It's you who deludes yourself. I don't know whether to pity you or despise you actually.
The truth threatens only those who cannot admit it. You're the one with the problems in that area, not me!
