Don't believe the hype -- Everyone can't be equal or financially successful

This is the truth of the matter!!!

There are a lot of things I hate about modern-day America. One such thing is the belief that everybody can be financially successful. This is utter nonsense. Let me explain. We live in a capitalist society (which is centered around competition and the accumulation of wealth), and in this capitalist society, there are different classes of people. What does this mean? It means, in order for someone to become rich, someone else has to become less rich, less wealthy or poor. The rich man's wealth has to come from someone. Unfortunately, his wealth comes from people like you and me -- middle class and poor people. It's an economic-pyramid scheme. This very thing was explained in the movie "In Time".

Never in American history -- in fact world history -- has there been equality among human beings, especially financially. So this whole notion that everyone can go to college and make it to the top is utter bullshit. Another thing, there are global elitists that constantly rig or manipulate the current system to ensure that they and their descends stay on top. These people are called one percenters (1%s.). And trust me; you are not going to get to where they are, nor are you going to transcend them. If you think it is possible, go for it. But I bet you -- you won't make it out first gear.

Best quotes from the movie "In Time" regarding my post on wealth:

Henry Hamilton: "For a few to be immortal, many must die."

Will Salas: "What in the hell is that suppose to mean?"

Henry Hamilton"You really don't know, do you? Everyone can't live forever. Where would we put them? Why do you think there are time zones? Why do you think taxes and prices go up the same day in the ghetto? The cost of living keeps rising to make sure people keep dying. How else could there be men with a million years while most live day to day? But the truth is... there's more than enough. No one has to die before their time."
