If someone had the fortune to be able to save 100% of a six-figure salary (say, $100,000/year in this case), it would take 10 years to save up 1 million. It would take 10,000 years to save up 1 billion.

Billionaires should not exist. Not in a perfect world, and certainly not in our imperfect one.

@brainblasted When one actually looks at the numbers and how much there is vs how much people get, it is nauseating.

With so much plenty and excess, it is absolutely absurd we still have poverty and people not having enough to be comfortable.

It's straight up insanity that people going without is viewed as 'normal'.

@Are0h it’s all so artificial, too. These people do not need to be suffering. The housing is there. The food is there. The materials are there, but money bars them from it.

@brainblasted That's literally all it is.

Nobody needs to go without. People do because of these completely subjective beliefs of who is worthy of it and who isn't.

It's just pure cruelty so a handful of people can feel special.


@Are0h @brainblasted "It's just pure cruelty so a handful of people can feel special."

Literally the best one-liner description of capitalism I've seen
