Are you Homeless? A high school drop out? A know it all college hippie? Or just a person who generally is a failure at life? Well come visit your peers at Occupy Philly. They need your support! (bring soap + food cause they don’t have any)
Okay before you go ahead and freak out just know I am joking. But I also think Occupy (anything) is a joke. To me it’s just a bunch of people whining about how they have no money and blame capitalism. These people don’t want to work for their money. They want to TAKE money from people that have it and give it to themselves. Socialism and redistribution of wealth inhibits individualism, desire and ambition and instead rewards laziness. The free market has provided more wealth and spurred more innovation than any other system in history. Its ironic that people use their iPhones, Facebook and Twitter to complain about capitalism yet those innovations would never have been created if it was not for the free market and capitalism.
I come from a low middle class family and could not afford college on my own. Instead of crying about it I enlisted in the Army strait out of high school. Everything I have I earned, and I enjoy the idea of being able to keep the money I am going to make after I graduate. I don’t want government hand outs or any special treatment.
I’m no expert and I don’t claim to have all the answers, its just the way I feel. I don’t enjoy talking about politics but I felt it necessary to defend capitalism because it is rarely defended on college campuses.
