The reason we work is because we have to be useful or we get physically and mentally sick. Think about it, when was the last time you felt good about not working, even if you had the dirtiest, worstest job in the history of the world? QED!
In modern terms, we do something, we get something called money and then spend it or save it, pay taxes (oops), and WE the people get to complete the circuit, so we can get to do what we do. Do, repeat, do let the experts fill in the blanks (you know they will) and on on and on and the world will go forward.
Here's the hitch, boys and girls: some of our experts are greedy, so they want to redistribute OUR wealth by eliminating their contribution to the circuit: that is called reducing taxes. If we, the squirrels stop scampering on the exercise wheels of wealth, then some of us get to work harder (yech) and some of us get to work less (weee).
My advice: if you want to be rich (I wish you well) work hard and keep working because eventually, some one may look around and find out you are taking a vacation in a tropical paradise shirking your duty to the commonwealth: oops!
Let's be good to each other.
