Re: woefully misinformed
>work your ASS off and BE "the rich guy",
What a fantasy! Millions/billions of people work extremely hard - and end up poor.
The ones that are 'the rich guy' were either born that way or happened to have the right skills at the right time (and were still incredibly lucky). They may have put in a few long hours, at some time in their career - but they didn't ever work hard, not like a miner or a nurse or a fruit-picker works hard.
This capitalist delusion drives so much simplistic politics (largely propagated to stop people realising that they aren't ever going to be rich, no matter how hard they work and that governments offer their only chance of avoiding grinding poverty).
