Is that really a distinction? If the people with money have control over essentially any system in a way that they are able to set it up even more to their advantage, then isn't money at the core of that?

Thereís people who are willing to see the truth and people who see the shared hallucination that keeps them from wanting to die.

I mean i guess not if you continue to ignore the philosophical discussion im trying to create by applying real world examples as a counter argument. I already aknowledged that i accept the power money can buy within our system.

Edit: at work with terrible service fml. Please connect the dots between wealth being inherently oppressive.

That still doesnt make wealth equal oppression.

Youre on Chula status until you bother saying something useful.
