Yes! If someone is richer than someone else it's because they worked harder.
No! There are so many different factors that affect a person's wealth. It is wrong to say those with less don't work hard.
It's a reason it's not the only reason. Rand should also be talking about how bad bailouts and corporate welfare are just like his dad did. Those are big factors as well.
Though not the only reason by far, a majority of the millionaires are new money. The Upper class isn't all billionaires who inherent all their money from the family. Many of them consist of entrepreneurs and those who get deeply involved in the stock market.
There are some small factors that effect a person's wealth that are not their fault but you have to take responsibility for your own well-being.
Yes it seems to be a discreet way for the left to kill off blacks
The majority of the upper class gained their wealth through inheritance of the previous generation. Social Climbers like Bill Gates are a minority. Just like there is a Cycle of Poverty, there is a Cycle of Wealth.
The level and quality of education effects your income, the country you live in effects your income, whether you are supporting a family or flying solo effects your income, your skill level effects your income... There are so many different things that contribute to income inequality that pinning it all on 'well youre either lazy or youre not' is a retarded belief
What a joke. Meet some rich people.
No. A wealthy person may have become rich by luck or by inheritance. Winning the lottery or having a socialite dad doesn't mean you are hard-working. Some people who work hard get rich. Others don't. The rich people didn't always work for their money in the first place.
Donald Trump himself inherrited a large sum of his wealth.
The idea that people who were born into wealth somehow earned it is just stupid.
People who voted yes should be lined up in the street and systematically executed
No. Some people get jobs and never get fired because of who they know. There is no meritocracy in the job market, and mostly there is a bunch of nepotism.
