Actually yes, war does make most equal. In the event our system that redistributes money from workers that earn it to those that don't, those that work (whether it be foraging for food or hunting) will get fed. The ones that refuse can finally starve or get off their ass and do something.

Well that's fine, if you advocate war I expect you'll be at the front line. By the way who's the enemy?

You would have made a good communist -- "Let's fix poverty by making everybody poor." How well has that worked out?

It is better to make everyone poor than forcing just the lucky some, like me to be poor.

Victim much?

Over and over again, you play the victim card.

As I said, just because the system has worked for you it does not mean it works for everyone. A system that is unfair needs to be changed. Just because you might not thrive in a different system, does not mean I should not try to change it to actually work for/benefit me.

So you think a person who spent 10 years running up a bill they will pay for life, learning and working, to make the same as someone who has spent neither a penny nor any time to learn? Who is going to pay for the student loans? Who is going to fix your boo-boo and why would they?

You don't know anything about what my life has been like. I did make changes along the way but didn't call for a war to do it. You are really a whiny imbecile with a persecution complex.

The same can be said for those that earn nothing but minimum wage and only do part time. They obviously fucked up more than I did. Why should I make their lives better at the cost of my own? Ever think of that? Of course you didn't.

Maybe you should spend some of your time and energy working to make your life better instead of whining about how everyone else has it better than you and it's their fault that your life sucks. The vast majority of successful people have gotten there through hard work. They didn't sit around and whine until everything was handed to them. Take some responsibility for your own life! Even if you have gotten a raw deal -- nobody else is going to fix that for you. You have to fix it. If you're not willing to do that, go ahead and be miserable. But stop whining about it.
