Regardless of how much time or money you have, it is hypocritical to complain about another person not doing more if you yourself are in a position to do more.

All the people calling to “eat the rich” and to hang them in public square, say it directly to our own open_mouth_ who got lucky with an invention and made a shit ton of money. Tell him he deserves to die and have all his wealth stripped from him.
He doesnt deserve his money, no. He deserves a good life, free of financial worries, just like everyone else. He does not deserve millions of dollars while other people are homeless, or one disaster away from financial ruin.

I dont believe in people deserving to be rich because they invented something or whatever. Nobody does that in a vacuum, so nobody deserves all the profits.

whenever i dream of being a billionaire and money is no issue i tell myself i would buy a normal ass house. like i can't even begin to get in the same frame of mind as this guy but i got everything i need. i think maybe i'd get a house with a swimming pool, a garden, and a garage so my car doesn't keep getting smashed in the street. but that's not really too crazy to think of. a garden/garage is quite normal...a swimming pool maybe not so much but still.

maybe i'd move to a different area where there's less antisocial behaviour going on but still....

this is just insane. that looks like a park/resort area. i guess if you're that rich you need somewhere that has top tier security and privacy. i guess we're not just on the same wavelength as these people.

As I recall Warren Buffett has lived in the same relatively modest house in Omaha for 60~ years.
