    So maybe the fast food workers there should start a fast food chain, putting their own assets at risk, sweat blood, do with out for some several years until it gets off the ground, and then they can buy a corporate jet.

    Lol. Apparently some think the proletariat should "just become" (because they don't sweat and bleed enough, and of course have the capital) petite bourgeoisie and that somehow that just transforms into controlling means of production.

    Yep. Thats how it works.

    Well, my wife and I started off with less than nothing, worked our asses off, saved our nickles and dimes, did with out, sweated blood, invested well, didn't go deep into debt buying the latest greatest what ever, lived well within our means. Worked for ourselves our whole lives, short of my stint in the Army, and retired in my late 50's.
    Yep King Thomas, that's pretty much how it works.

    Of course there are those who believe it is not fair to those who are are not willing to take the world by the ass and give it a fling,to have to settle with less than those who are willing to live free without asking a by your leave to anyone, and that those who do fling the world, should be force to put all of their rewards into a big pile and divide it up equally among all, so everyone has the same wealth.
    Sure, that's how it should work.
