Wealth

“One can divide political twitter into people who think wealth is created and people who think poverty is created.” – Ben Evans

I find myself thinking about some interesting things that happened with Paul Graham…

What’s the fundamental difference between a Republican and a Democrat? What’s the difference in the core belief? There was an interesting bit from Horace and Pete… Liberal vs Conservative.

“You’ve got that eternal idiotic idea that if anarchy came it would come from the poor. Why should it? The poor have been rebels, but they have never been anarchists; they have more interest than anyone else in there being some decent government. The poor man really has a stake in the country. The rich man hasn’t; he can go away to New Guinea in a yacht. The poor have sometimes objected to being governed badly; the rich have always objected to being governed at all. Aristocrats were always anarchists.” – The Man Who Was Thursday: A Nightmare by G. K. Chesterton
