"If workers struggle for higher wages, this is hailed as 'social gains'; if businessmen struggle for higher profits, this is damned as 'selfish greed.'" - Ayn Rand

    For nine years, I worked for an extremely brilliant, wealthy man. His intelligence provided jobs for thousands of people. He donated to Charity, supported his church, helped raise money for charitable organizations, was a good father and faithful husband (and I was his personal secretary, so I would have known otherwise). He enjoyed making money and he really did do that well. There was no greed. He was modest, generous, trustworthy and sincere. I am sure not all successful people are greedy. We shouldn't try to paint everyone with the same brush!

      Growl "THE RICH!" as nasty as you can. Old dino has heard lib politicians do that while giving speeches (and using their position to accumulate personal wealth) over the years.
      Former factory workers showed up at my dad's funeral during 2015 saying they were grateful for the jobs he helped bring into their formerly rural area.
      In that area during the 50s, me as a little dino saw a black guy drive a mule wagon that I followed from my front yard to his farm. His family was really nice and gave me some tasty treat.
      That farm is long gone replaced by a large suburban area. For all the businesses that moved in over the years, a drive through Dothan, Alabama, is quite an urban experience.

    Thanks for the post !
    Included in the definition of a leftist progressive collectivist would be extreme projector of rotten dogma. Emotional reactionary destructors.

    Reasoning proves , That thought hard work and effort organized for efficiency to produce goods and services increases standards of living . That means Social gains are produced by trading value for value. Not by looting or extortion.
