the lower class has the power to manipulate the middle class into stealing all the hard earned money from the wealthy

that logic is fucking flawless

The rich are just willingly going to live in the same neighborhood as the poor.

Killer Joe - 2017-06-06
So it's the "working poor as political elites" theory.

If everyone were paid the same per hour, this analogy might mean something.
Maggot Brain - 2017-06-04
Also one would also assume that they all work for the same company~So why are they alright with one brother working one third of the time?

dairyqueenlatifah - 2017-06-03
If this situation was taking place in real life, you might have a point.

However it's a really shitty basis of comparison to look at the entire working class as if everyone makes the same amount of money in the same field of work and everyone on the lower end is just lazy and barely works.

Five for retardation.

libertarians , almost without exception, have never worked a menial minimum wage job to support themselves 100%.


(the exception being the functional crazies that use libertarianism as a coping mechanism for their shitty lives)

Videos like this are what the phrase "not even wrong" was invented for.

Yup. Every one I knew was either a comp sci major whose parents never made them get summer jobs and fully paid for their college, or upper middle class trust fund babies.

Don't forget that a lot of them are early-retirees who formerly worked for government contractors.

Cost of living? Marginal dollar value? Never heard of them.

Every flavor of conservatism, from billionaires to rednecks to libertarians, is driven by the believe that their own status and worth can only be proven by having people below them.
HarrietTubmanPI - 2017-06-04
Conservative comedy too. As, it's not really funny to always be punching down.

SolRo - 2017-06-03
Every libertarian video should have the "naïve idiots discuss economics" tag

Why the hell does irs.com have a comments section?

man, can they EVER get off the fucking ant and grasshopper thing?

It's ultimately the whole libertarian premise, plus don't tax me, and my Ayn Rand books are overdue at the library,

The end point of Calvinism was the removal of a God from the equation. Or, rather, the transmutation of a personal, transcendent God into the perceived moral justice of the market economy.

Binro the Heretic - 2017-06-04
The best version of the fable of the ant & the grasshopper is the Walt Disney Silly Symphony "The Grasshopper & the Ants."

In the end, the ants, realizing they have plenty to spare, take pity on the starving freezing Grasshopper and share their food & shelter with him. They also realize the Grasshopper provides a valuable service just by playing his fiddle to entertain them.

Every Libertarian argument boils down to a Lucky Ducky comic

It took a lot of effort to yell "FUCK YOU" at this video, and that's coming from someone in an upper tax bracket. Five for smug selfish evil.

Correction: *not* to yell
