This is spot on. There are other sites that would turn this comment into a 700 word essay. It’s not necessary.
Here it is distilled to its essence: Why the notion of the 1%ers is hogwash-
I’m so sick of the lie that progs love to spread about money as a finite number. “1% of the people control 90% of the wealth,” or “the top 3 richest families control over 50% of the wealth,” etc. etc.
Look, progs, it’s real simple: If you perform a job, your pay has nothing to do with the wealth other people have accumulated.
When was the last time you were going to get paid for a job, but your boss said, “Sorry, we can’t pay you for that because 1% of the people have 90% of the money so that leaves you with nothing”? Never, that’s the last time you were told that.
Or more to the point, your ability to afford education, healthcare, housing, food, etc. also has nothing to do with the money other people have.
The same opportunities are available to everyone regardless of what someone already has accomplished.
Taking from the accomplished only diminishes your own potential returns. -ECP
