Hei, I am not saying I am a likeable guy. However, that’s the point.
When I was young, many said I am stupid. Then after I ace some math competitions, they said I am too different to ever make money. Then I started a business. Even after money coming my family would get mad because I do not have a job. Think about it. A programmer costs $400 in Indonesia, and I had a business bringing in $5k residual income per month. Why would anyone think I should work? That doesn’t change people’s mind. You do it. You did it. Many will still think it can’t be done.
Because if they don’t worst things will happen. Humans are greedy and selfish. Blocking honest productive means to produce wealth will make them earn wealth through other means.
Just look at other countries where governments redistribute wealth. Look at China during Mao.
Why would some people work hard all their life if he cannot inherit his wealth to his children. If every kids have the same chance to succed, why should I work harder if I am not going to either have more kids or my kids won’t have better chances?
