That moment I really viscerally realised how effective it has been allowing "regular people" to receive a small benefit from capitalism. They then support the whole damn thing. Most of which has nothing to do with a little investing here and there, but with power and domination, and all sorts of other shit.
The whole #homeowner thing is similar. They own property as #investments and as a way to avoid paying any #tax, rather than the other way around (the more valueAdded #land/ #realEstate a person owns the more they should pay in tax).
These people are entitled too. "Why should I not be able to buy properties for my kids?!"
@nicksellen People keep forgetting about what happens if (read: when) that information falls into the hands of some bad actor. Data breaches happen all the fscking time.
