What avenues can one take in which vast wealth can be incurred with very little physical, mental, or emotional effort?

Of course you would. You have no idea what it takes to be successful.

I want to reiterate that effort/labor has no value in and of itself. No one deserves better simply because they have worked hard.


Value of skills is a much better determinate than just hard work. Have a skillset that is in high demand, combine it with hard work and success is almost guaranteed.

Totally agree. Anyone who says otherwise has no clue what "effort" really is.

Like I said, one has to fulfill the wants and needs of others if one expects to become wealthy.

Agreed. Those Kennedy children really worked hard to enjoy the lifestyle they had growing up. Earned it all.

Someone before them did.


Papa Joe had to run a lot of booze and bust a lot of non-union skulls to make that fortune.

You believe that 1st place and 50th place should both get the same trophy don't you?
