I am not of the mind that a man is either of science or of religion. At his best and his worst, man exists in the misty glimmering where the falling angel meets the rising ape. That he chooses a direction from that point defines him as human.
Increased assery correlates with increased income. I've watched it thousands of times. People start at low salary and are ok people, they get promoted and become a little convinced by their own publicity, promoted again they become egotistic smug pricks and the more money they get the more they generate inflated self worth and see everyone else's lack thereof. They lose any concept of doing anything decent. They do what is asked of them, take the money and are thoroughly nasty people who lie continually just in the course of any day.
They also become very, very boring company.
You are not forwarding any of that income my way, so no, IMO you are no better than you were previously.

Drugs are bad, prohibition is worse
They generalize that all people with low incomes are scum bags. If those scum bags get job offers for more money, they always take them. This makes little sense to me. This is the ideology that I am trying to challenge.
