Why is it that a person who doesn’t have a lot of money to begin with is charged more money by a bank for not having enough money, even though the bank is the one who has all the money anyway and thus is essentially taking money from you for not having any money?
No, I didn’t overdraft, but I have before and I just can’t stop thinking about how ridiculous the concept of paying fees for not having enough money is. I’m so sorry you’re poor, but here, I need to take more money out of your account because, well…?
Like, sorry if I’m being a wild-eyed idealist or ignorant, but that just doesn’t make sense to me and I think that if things don’t make sense then they need to be challenged and disobeyed and observed in a rationale light to say, “Hey, should this be how it is? Does this benefit the human race?”
Because yeah, I do believe in morality, and I think that it is intrinsically related to evolution and biology, in that we should do things that make our species survive and thrive. Allowing old rich dudes in suits to acquire most of the world’s wealth while the young and unborn do not profit is not keeping the species alive. It is transferring “survival of the fittest” from those who are actually fit to live (i.e. physically healthy, young, etc) to those who have an artificial construct (namely money).
I mean, I guess we could say that ‘because those who are wealthy must be incredibly clever and brilliant, they should live’ is a possible counter-argument, but I don’t really think that most of the wealthiest people alive are actually that clever or intelligent. I think most of them are sociopathic and have a lack of empathy, and that is the secret to their success. But that does not at all constitute a suitable candidate for ensuring survival of the human race. In fact, I would argue that these fucks will be the downfall. I don’t know, look at how fucked up European monarchy was (and maybe still is, I don’t know. I just think about how those fucks just keep imbreeding and getting awful genetic disorders like hemophilia and ugly-person-syndrome).
The most brilliant people are typically those who actually have a skill that they use to help others - scientists, doctors, teachers, etc. - and they have a really diverse range of salaries that range from high to piss. I know some teachers who do Americorps, and they make 20,000 a year. These are people who are trying to make all humans equal and do well and be successful members of society. Can someone explain to me why they don’t get to waive overdraft fees or something?
I’ll end this thought with a hypothetical to better convey my point. Imagine if dogs had money. Wouldn’t it be fucking tragic if toy poodles and pugs were the only dogs that could afford dog food and pitbulls and retrievers and beautiful awesome dogs had to starve as a result? Yes it would and no don’t tell me that toy poodles and pugs are awesome dogs because you are wrong. Pugs aren’t even meant to be alive, the poor fucks.
Okay, back to fart jokes and pictures of fat people farting on ducks. E-mail me or something if you want to chat about this.
