Carl Bernstein

The problem with trickle-down economics isn't that it doesn't work. It does. The problem is that the rich get a flood and the poor get a trickle. It's not enough, and it's not fair.

Well it depends on what you mean by fair fados. The antiquated systems of the past with kings and peasants were obviously not sustainable. The weak were used as fuel for the rich. So yes, our current society makes life actually worth living, which for most of history wasn't the case. But "enforced fairness" like that of communism is an abomination that destroys everything it touches. That's what I was talking about.

'The strong do what they can and the weak suffer what they must' right kumagai?
Well luckily humanity didn't much care for those laws of nature, took the heads off of some royalties and built societies much more equitable and fair than those that came before. And we'll keep doing it!

I think "fair" is the most fairy tale concept people have ever imagined into being. It goes against every law of nature there is. And no matter how hard we try to make it work, it just doesn't stick. Most of the time, trying to enforce fairness mutates into atrocity.

It's cute how much effort some people go to just to say they don't care.
