Sure, but does this constitute the majority of the professionals in high paying jobs? Or do they get in to it for the monetary compensastion/quality of life?

it pisses me off that people are so money motivated...you realize that that motivation is more in line with a criminal than a patriot, intellectual, or man of honor.

The military(use to) break these kinds of spirits, Men of honor they were called, fight on the front lines: God, Country, Family.....now it's me,myself, I, mistress, vice, family, country, God. Easy to form this type society and it will work without issue as long as you keep the animals out.
What in the ever-loving frick are you talking about?

Why would the Microsoft team even bother coming up with Windows 8 when they can just keep giving away Windows 95 for free?

Why would anybody even bother inventing robots to boost productivity to pump out products quickly when they can just get uncle Phil to package 5 things in an hour?

Would people that want compensation for doing a more difficult/valuable job than others around them be among the animals you'd rid of?

men of science create to create...not for monetary reward.....C.R.E.A.M "Dollar Dollar Bill Yall" is a poor people mindset.

Money is simply an easier means to barter.

It is inefficient if you are a farmer who grows corn and you are looking for a coffee table to find a carpenter who is also looking with corn to trade with.

Money is a universal tool to trade with.

Instead of thinking of money as dollar bills, think of the money you have in the bank as potential tangible objects.

When you work, you are trading your labor for potential things.

There is nothing evil about money. It is simply an efficient trade tool because we all want things.

that is a primitive mind, it's the motivation of Gaudy



the need to have, is the need to display
the purpose of display, is to woo a mate
remove the primitive mate, remove the need to display, remove the need to have.

% who become Doctors for status and money vs % who desire to heal people

% who become Mathematicians for status and money vs % who desire to work with numbers

People entering any profession consider the standard of living that job will provide them. I don't see anything wrong with this. While a desire to help people would be a desirable trait for a doctor to have, how important is it really? Why is altruism expected of doctors and not other professions?

that pyramid of life needs, basic necessities are covered at the base minimum living wage. The degree to which an individual society rises is based on the degree to which that society collectively produces.

It's both. If there was no money in those professions, a lot less people would do it.

Most doctors like what they do and wanted to be a doctor for the right reasons.. but if doctors made minimum wage, they'd do something else instead.

Incorrect, look at IQ. IQ isn't indicative of "financial success"(highest high in wage), but it is indicative of the highest LOW...ie "The Bar"

People with higher IQs are seldom poor comparatively, because they choose fields that are highly intelligence related yet lower on the "pay me" scales.

That is true in capitalism, except exceptional individuals are rewarded more.

For example... things used to suck. Then as productivity increased, entirely new industries are created, the industrial revolution happened, businesses innovated which makes all of our lives better.

So the more productive our society is, the more we all benefit. Henry Ford innovated and increased productivity dramatically which made cars cheap enough for the average American to afford. He improved all of our lives through innovation. He should be rewarded for his contribution, and he was. Yet through his own self-interest, we were ALL rewarded with the ability to afford one of his cars.

With capitalism, we rise collectively as we become more productive, yet exceptional individuals are also rewarded for their contributions.

re: Would people be willing to work


I'll give you an example...

I'm "middle class". I have a vehicle that has the ability and technology to be able to run for hundreds of thousands of miles before I'll need a new one. It has a 5-star crash-test rating.

I have a 42" HD TV.

I have a surround sound system that makes sporting events and movies sound like a movie theater.

I have a Sonicare toothbrush that cleans my teeth very well in only a couple of minutes.

I have a "home gym" in my garage.

I have a nice shower that I can get clean in with hot water any time I want.

and I can go on and on.


Not even that long ago in the scheme of things, extremely rich people didn't even have the ability to take a bath every day. They never had cars, or TV's, or surround sound, or electric toothbrushes, or even running water.

Life used to suck even for rich people.


Through the innovations and increased productivity of our society, ALL of our living standards have risen.

Poor people today are living better than extremely rich people from not that long ago.

how so, free land, sustenance farming. Beautiful.

first schools were public, good for the community, then when more "Catholics" came..private schools showed up to segregate.(trivial animal perception)
