Forum Post: Extreme Success or Winner Takes All

If being a success means to have 5 times the average, what percentage of the population can succeed if everyone else has nothing at all? If 80% of us have nothing, how will the 20% make their money?

Yes, that's somewhat extreme but it's not an extreme. One extreme for the analogy is everyone has exactly the average. Another is that one extreme winner has it all. Which extreme are we closer to and which way are we moving?

No one can have much more than average material by their own hard work. Others in our collective [as it can only be] economy must work for them.

Why must all economy be collective? Try to make a profitable deal without interaction with others in the community. Individual economy is an oxymoron. Only masturbation is non social interaction. Even wankers like cons should understand that.

Cons, Is it deliberate or are you really that obtuse? Never mind. There's no point to asking anything of the pathologically dishonest and insincere.

So do you think that everyone should merely be, and more importantly strive to be, average?
