Quote from: Jason Harvestdancer on January 06, 2022, 07:22:44 AMThe secret to becoming wealthy is to hire someone then underpay them. You don't have to hire them to do anything in particular, just hire them. You can even hire them to do nothing. All you have to do is, once you've hired them, you underpay them. The more people you hire and underpay, the richer you become. You don't need to actually produce anything to sell to the public. All you need to do is underpay your employees.
Quote from: ProletarianBanner on January 06, 2022, 12:57:18 AMIndeed it is evil to be a billionaire, their wealth is gained through the exploitation of the working class, the exploitation of working people. They have not earned it and it is excessive, soon they will be trillionaires, yet the workers are not entitled to the fruits of their own labour, and thus cannot reap what they sow because some rich Capitalist bourgeois extracts the surplus value of their labour and takes it as a capital gain, they should not exist.
Quote from: Jason Harvestdancer on January 06, 2022, 09:02:22 PMDon't you worry about it. Once the inflation kicks in we'll all be billionaires. Of course a loaf of bread will cost a hundred million, but let's ignore that for now.
