you know after skimming over this thread I have to ask: does anyone know what a ZERO SUM GAME mean?

That's really the gist of it. My personal philosophy has always been that NO ONE deserves anything in life, we just try to get away with doing the things we want to do. Men want what they want, and it seems that these 8 so called men are doing exactly what drives most men: they want more.

Money is neither created nor destroyed, and I've been told it's never owned either. It's the product of the individual's efforts that decides how rich he/she will be in life with a bit of luck and other factors adding to that contribution of course. We can argue all we like but that doesn't change the game. What we can discuss and put in place is what policies and incentives we can impose on our societies that will simulate/encourage growth/emergence of new industries whilst the old ones gets replaced/removed as we move this game of money distribution along etc. . .

I will tell you what I know, and have seen about life and people,, there are people out there that will wait, and cheat, pretty much their entire life time to "take" what they "feel" they are entitled to have

a doctor of psychology will tell you that "years of feelings of entitlement" is not a healthy mental state

yes, but that's their philosophy on life - not everyone's. The game is still the game, how you play the game is up to you. At one end you have the cheats, liars, deceivers etc. . anything to get ahead in the most dishonest, dubious way - and at the other end of the spectrum you have those who follow the rules of honesty and conduct. Both seem to have success and plenty of people in between.

And then we have the deluded and the psychotic etc. . who really believe in their sh$t and sometimes get away with it. They could be highly successful CEOs, political leaders, heads of government departments etc, deciding the future of nations merely based on certain whims. These people could be completely criminal and selfish in their decision making and think nothing of destroying companies/jobs/small countries etc. . just think about it? If you want brutal bluntness I think Blair and Bush are war criminals. Obama is an idiot - and totally incompetent when he was in office - and Donald Rumsfeld is a f@@$ing monster for the decisions he made. But hey, that's just me . . . And these wankers got away with what they did and no one really stopped them.

Look around you... nobody starts at the same level. Many have the benefits of family wealth. There are really not many people that start with nothing and make everything they have.

Do you really think that a pampered rich kid does not have a better foothold getting started. 99% of businesses fail because of under-funding. Even poor DTrump was forced to start with a paltry million dollars. I pity him for such a poor start in life.

It is not what you know, it is who you know.

I agree with you, there is always an element of that. But then there are some individuals who do rise from nothing and make it, and they know how to play the game. Then there are those who are born into it and know how to play the game. And then some who are born into wealth and squander it through recklessness and total negligence and end up dirt poor - it's a mixed bag. The majority won't make much of their lives because they've probably been indoctrinated with poor work ethic or think that what they are doing is enough etc. . .

But I think we can all agree that in a "free" capitalist society there is the opportunity to better yourself as long as you are smart enough to be aware of your own circumstances and know how to play the game to get ahead, it's just that some of these CEOs and politicians are getting ahead at the expense of the common people, making decisions that can seriously displace whole countries/continents and bring blowback to us all, all in the name of their globalist agenda.
