Why do poorfags keep making the same mistakes again and again?
What can we realistically do to help poorfags make better decisions?
because if they made prudent decisions they wouldn't be poorfags in the first place. basically your question is why do people who make bad decisions make bad decisions
stupid people don't want to make decisions. They want to absolve responsibility and blame their leaders when it goes wrong. It's funny how your opinion of stupid/poor people changes as you get older. Probably cause you get used to working hard for your money and those that sponge start looking less and less like people and more like dead weight holding all the working people back
I dunno, I always told myself that I wouldn't have kids until I was rich, otherwise the stress would fuck everything else up.
You could tell them that, but it's not like they would listen. All but the dumbest would know that means no shot at kids for the majority.
Welfare and programs like it are the worst thing you can do, because they fuck up incentives.
>Work hard, be reliable
>Get small promotion
>Turn it down because a 40$/week raise prices you out of welfare
This is often why ppl work dead end jobs for their whole lives I think. Why take more responsibility and work harder when it will actually get you LESS in return?
Honestly, my opinion changed about 2 months after I started working.
>tfw you realize well over 70% of the people working with you have the intelligence of a sponge
People with 10/20 years more experience than I have who:
>Can't be trusted with the credentials to production servers because they end up taking them down with stupid shit like filling the hard drive to 100% and not immediately deleting their shit
>Can't follow simple instructions even if you have them write them down on a notebook
>When asked to do something, they do it and then leave it. Without ever testing that it actually works. Then everything breaks at 3 AM and I'm the one who has to get up and fix it.
Honestly they're worse than dead weight.
They actively create problems for the people who know what they're doing.
>implying everyone can be successful
You need to have a large base of working men who you can't pay well because inflation. If everyone saved and started a business like that the same amount of businesses would succed and many more would tank. Something like 50% of start ups tank already.
If everyone saved the market would also tank because of decreased spending. If everyone invested in the stock market, nothing will happen but overvaluation and them losing their money - the real production of the country doesn't change. Unless they lose their stock money to an investor who uses it as captial.
The American dream is a joke. It's obvious from the start most people are destined to not succeed.
Why are you complaining? You are actively profiting from their stupidity. Would you like more competition or would you like to shine in comparison to more people?
You need to have a worker class, these days the dumb worker class is more satisfied than ever, they can buy silly trinkets and party/hedonism culture these days keeps them content and happy despite their grueling work. Its brilliant. There is an entire class of happy and willing dumb slaves and you're complaining, you're an idiot.
Enjoy your intellectual position be happy for the others enjoying their blissfully ignorant lives.
>Why do poorfags keep making the same mistakes again and again?
Incentivize sterilization. But the moment you do that people will act like having children you can't afford or look after is a human right.
Honestly people (i mean, humans) are exceptionally good at dealing with poverty, since it has been our natural state for very long. Much better than most people are at dealing with wealth. Only a few know how to handle wealth.
To be frank even the poor in India likely live better than most people lived until very recently. The 'poor' in developed nations enjoy a level of material wealth so extreme by historical standards. Basically everyone in a developed country has spoiled-rich-kid-syndrome because humans just haven't had time to adapt to this level of abundance.
The poor in developed countries may complain about being in poverty but really if you pay attention it's more akin to a spoilt rich kid throwing a tantrum because he only has 3 yachts when the other kid has 9.
Yup, welfare was never needed until those flithy dems got into office. It's not like the government should take care of its citizens or anything.
When did "government taking care of citizens" morph from
>enforce the law and keep foreign hordes out
>make sure everyone is fed, clothed, housed, has impeccable health, a college degree, and whatever else they want
What people think the government should do changes over time with new technology, philosophies, etc.
>welfare users get whatever they want and are well fed, clothed in good health and housed
Nigger have you seen the people who get welfare? We're far from making our poor have any of those. "Welfare is going to make people lazy" is so silly. Who's going to stop working because they get 50 dollars a week in food stamps? Poor people are as greedy as anyone else.
Are we talking about bogans or refugees?
Brother used to work at a new car yard, and would sometimes have "refugees" coming in to buy a $40,000 car, even though they're unemployed. Guess where they got the money from?
