Its funny to think that most people who support billionaires on social media are poor teens who hope to get as rich one day, not knowing that its exactly people like billionaires the reason they will never get rich.

Elon and Jeff really do like to go back and forth to see who can be the least liked human on this planet.

Billionaires are so out-of-touch. The government is not a business and resource-hogging centers are not good at capital allocation at all :shakeno:

Discussing whether something with longstanding, well-established existence "shouldn't" exist is borderline childish. Millionaires, billionaires, and soon to be trilionares, exist and will continue to exist. This is why the left always loses in these arguments, instead of having intelligent articulate arguments with nuances they go the same old socialist college student rants.

Police brutality has a longstanding, well established existence. 
 

Violence against trans women has a longstanding, well established existence. 
 

White nationalism has a longstanding, well established existence.

 

Should people stop saying these things shouldn’t exist?  Is saying these things shouldn’t exist childish?

He is right.  Billionaires should not pay any taxes because there should not be any billionaires.  Anyone with that much wealth should be immediately guillotined and their assets should go to public housing funds.

A terribly stupid idea, but that's nothing new from Mr. Musk.

 

I'm kind of glad he's the richest person alive because he's already become much more detestable than Jeff Bezos. I've always hated Elon Musk, but recently, people have really seemed to become aware of just how awful and egomaniacal he really is. He makes for a better villain, in my opinion.

This could have been said about slavery when it was still law of the land. Thank god this perspective didn't win history.

I believe that if you earn more than 40k a year, you should pay 10% of that to the state. Everything under that should be tax free. Also, those 10% should be fixated

Please don't be disingenuous, what is even this comparison? 

 

"-Proposing unrealistic, radical structural changes of the world economy is not a winnable argument, be more nuanced"

"-Oh so you're against basic human and civil rights too huh???"

 

Way  to perfectly illustrate my point :rip:

I'm not being disingenuous. Your argument was simply, "Discussing whether something with longstanding, well-established existence "shouldn't" exist is borderline childish." The abolition movement, civil rights movement, and many other massive movements that precisely called into question whether something with long-standing, well-established existence should exist. I'm not saying that you yourself are against basic human and civil rights. I'm simply pointing out that your logic can be applied during periods where basic civil liberties were denied using the argument that oppressive systems were already-established and impossible to eliminate. 

 

This point is fairly straight forward, so if you want to intentionally miss it, that's on you. But pretending that societal change is impossible and should never be suggested is literally silly given the massive changes that have happened throughout the short history of the United States alone, let alone the entire arc of history.

People surely can discuss how as a society we should currently tackle the hoard of wealth and how the  state can create a path to dismantle economic inequality, implementing reforms that will tax those who earn more and relieve those who earn less for the better good of the community. However, these same people can also make it clear they want to fight to live in a society where people are not able to hoard that amount of wealth to begin with. Those point of views aren't mutually exclusive and most of the time they actually aren't.

It really wasn't a disingenuous comparison and I don't think those members said you are against human rights, slavery was not only related to the social structure of several nations, but also a central part of the economic model of those places for centuries and the reason it was abolished partly has to do with the fact those economies found other ways of profit.

 

People being exploited for their work as a way to ensure generational hoard of wealth to others can also be discussed as a phenomenon against human rights. The concept of human rights is something always evolving. Workers currently have rights for a reason.

Yeah, he should stop paying taxes but also governments should stop giving him tax aid and subsidies, also good luck booking those permits to operate. H*ll, he didn't even wanted to pay for free their workers when everyone was in quarantine and put them back to work... as if their company didn't have enough money :toofunny3:

He is such a troll

So the rich should keep hoarding the money and not pay taxes to pay for public education, healthcare, repair infrastructure, etc

It’s not like money is infinite. The rich keep hoarding MORE and MORE from the total amount of money making the poor poorer. This trend is disturbing, and the pandemic made it only worse

And now also accepting useless meme crypto shitcoin Doge for Tesla payments

But isn't Elon Musk saying the same about taxes :rip:? He's saying taxes 'shouldn't exist' for billionaires when taxes have been with a longstanding and well-estabilished existence, worms I guess :toofunny3:

 

Also you're implying billionaires have been existing during the whole human history, but this is false, they only have been like 100 years around because let's say, a system or a government allowed them to cheat the system and accumate wealth they don't even need
