We are the 99% and we are douchebags too.

I have a genuine dilemma about the 99% movement…

On one hand, I agree with the sentiment, in principle. On the other, I consider it to be ignoring one big point: That people are selfish, irrespective of the economic base it comes from.

Greed & individualism, at the expense of human compassion, are our enemy. Not the rich. Case in point: Every person that has ever fucked me over & destroyed MY life has been in the middle… even when presented with the option not to.

In fact, most of the people I have met who are in (or approaching) the 1%, are actually fucking great people, and do a lot for others.

Therefore, I choose to live my life according to this song:

You're too kind :-)

FYI, I run everything financial through the checkout on Rapskally.com, which is my company. Don’t worry, it’s still me, it’s just easier for accounting for it to be all under that.

Hey there, good looking. Sorry to interrupt.

Wanna Subscribe?

Thanks for reading my stuff. Seriously. I’m eternally grateful. Yes, I know, subscribing means more bloody email. But do subscribe, and if you’re feeling generous, you can leave a donation (this is my company site that powers the checkout. Don’t worry, it’s still me, I just hate admin). I am completely independent and whilst support is never expected, it is always appreciated.
