People tend to think “if it’s simple, it’s wrong.” This has led to an enormous bulk of humanity’s problems including the bursting of the American housing bubble in 2008, in my opinion.
In my opinion, the things I feel I have a responsibility to say and do not only generate no income, they are a hindrance to generating better income. I think I need to put in a lot more work, pain and suffering contributing what I feel is of highest value to society than those who just work full-time their entire lives (and think that all paid work is somehow a real contribution) and get to enjoy a more regular lifestyle.
Even in Canada, it takes months to find (and get approved for) an individual insurance plan (independent of plans paid by employers) that will cover the antidepressants I wouldn’t need to be taking if the system wasn’t set up for the wealthy elites. I feel the moment you stop working, everything is rescinded. The only reason this occurs is because those who support keeping people unnecessarily poor fare better in this system than those fighting against it, (in my opinion.)
Why do American journals, academics and the media at large give unwavering support to Israel?
