General Politics Discussion Thread in Off-Topic Posted May 3, 2018 I didn't say being rich was a sin. I said often the sinful are rich. And the invisible hand is horseshit and flies in the face of basically everything we know about human psychology on the broad. I disagree. There are sinful people from every social class. This is one case that I dislike about leftists. They see success under capitalism as evil without even acknowledging competion in markets is mandatory no matter who you are. Capitalism may completely tear at the very fabric of the societal condition, but everyone must play its game. Resentment and hatred for peoples only create the very system that leftists wish to abolish. You cannot blow up a social relationship. You can appeal to human's rationale and plea for the preservation of human dignity. Both the prolatariat and the bourgeoisie are in this together, and only the naturally occuring conditions of alturism and reason can fix it. If you believe this cannot occur or does not exist. Then humans will have devolved as a social species and become more akin to our reptilian ancestors. The survival of the human species depends on democracy. I hope not all liberals are this cynical.
