    "The work ethic is not a traditional value. It is a Johnny-come-lately idea. In ancient times, work was considered a disgrace inflicted on those who had failed to amass a nest egg through imperial conquest, profitable marriage, or in forms of organized looting"

      What is wrong with organized looting?  Everyone meet at my house, and get on the bus, we are going to loot rich people's houses.  I kid, but if we keep giving tax cuts to the rich and we keep seeing a slash in our wages mY joke might become a reality.

      absolute freedom for one individual undoubtedly limit's the freedom of another.
