Why kill them when you can rob them? It seems like the ultimate (and most gleefully vituperative) justice for ultra-capitalists like themselves to deprive them of their unearned billions.

I probably wouldn't.... I'd commit a variety of kinds of illegal investing (mostly insider trading), get very wealthy very quickly, and retire to my own private island.

I would be concerned with the practicality of robbing them. It's not like their wealth exists in bearer bonds or tangible assets.... it's all electronic... except for the property that they own.

I'd want something that I could own, and continue to own. Then, I'd take it and hide it in Cyprus or in Singapore.

I mean... I don't see anything wrong with it. If you don't think the minimum wage should be raised, I would force those people to live on the (federal, not state) minimum wage. If you think that health care is not a right, I'd like to deprive those people of it.

Translating policies into life experiences is what I'm all about... lol

I'm sure there is some poetic reason behind that, which I'm missing because of our differing world views.

Maybe it comes down to what my dad told me about politics when I was a kid. I asked my Dad "what's the difference between Republicans and Democrats?" He answered by telling me that Republicans hate poor people and Democrats don't. Being poor I immediately identified with being a Democrat after that.

Is this poetic justice because you believe Republicans hate poor people?

I would probably do the same thing that I do now, too. I mean, if I said only "no consequences to me" and it were the case that I could act with impunity, the only thing that might be different is that I would tell people what I really think about them more often.... but in a world with "no consequences" that wouldn't be purposeful because when I say something to someone about stupidshit that they've done, I want them to feel consequences -that is to say, I desire that they feel bad about themselves for how they have acted. In a world with no consequences, that wouldn't happen.

I am a liberal. They are not liberals. That's the impetus.

Maybe it comes down to what my dad told me about politics when I was a kid. I asked my Dad "what's the difference between Republicans and Democrats?" He answered by telling me that Republicans hate poor people and Democrats don't. Being poor I immediately identified with being a Democrat after that.

Republicans love poor people to the extent that they are dumb enough to vote for Republicans. The term "useful idiot" applies.

My sympathy is almost always with the little guy. It's why I'm a Democrat.

Is this poetic justice because you believe Republicans hate poor people?

No. I believe that Republican policy makers don't care about poor people because they are totally removed from what a life on the poverty line feels like.

That's what I try to do. I've found myself fantasizing about who I'd tell off if I won the lottery and then realized that the reason I don't say that stuff now is because I'm a coward. I concluded I should start telling people off more or develop a better code of ethics, I could take with me into any situation.

I've decided to not get annoyed with people as much and to try and be more understanding of them.

I would hope the same thing I do now. I really strive to a act consistent with a way that I would if there were no consequences, so I'm me regardless of the environment I find myself in.

I would probably do the same thing that I do now, too. I mean, if I said only "no consequences to me" and it were the case that I could act with impunity, the only thing that might be different is that I would tell people what I really think about them more often.... but in a world with "no consequences" that wouldn't be purposeful because when I say something to someone about stupidshit that they've done, I want them to feel consequences -that is to say, I desire that they feel bad about themselves for how they have acted. In a world with no consequences, that wouldn't happen.

That's what I try to do. I've found myself fantasizing about who I'd tell off if I won the lottery and then realized that the reason I don't say that stuff now is because I'm a coward. I concluded I should start telling people off more or develop a better code of ethics, I could take with me into any situation.

I've decided to not get annoyed with people as much and to try and be more understanding of them.

Seeking to understand before seeking to be understood is usually a safe way to play it. I mean, there are some instances where I just don't giveafuckatall what other people think, and I'm unapologetic about that, but those instances are rare.
