gdp rising is a bad thing, well good just for the rich. I might agree it was good if real wages increased

A bad thing, but good for the rich... Would you mind explaining how it's bad for the non-rich please?

It is much better to be poor in a rich country than poor in a poor country.

"I might agree it was good if real wages increased"

So that's a different topic. I'm asking why you think it's bad, not why you don't think it's good. There are benefits beyond real wage increase, but let's try to stick to one thing.

Why is it bad? How does it negatively impact people?

if there were benefits you'd name em. it negatively effects us cuz the rich get richer, they can bribe our politicians more, get more bailouts when they fuck up, it's harder for us to overthrow them, we need to lynch the lot of em, anastasia them

I agree that I don't want them bribing politicians. They don't get more bailouts (that's something that only happens when GDP slows). I also don't think we'll be "overthrowing" anybody anytime soon. At least I hope not because those kinds of "revolutions" turn countries into poverty stricken disaster zones.

But regardless of those particulars, your main argument is that it's bad because it helps one group that you think is out to hurt you. That tells me that neither of us are going to change the other's mind. Nothing I can say is going to take away your victim complex or convince you that you're not being hurt.

My advice - put down the phone and get off the internet for a couple of days. Go out and socialize face to face and learn not to hate your fellow man.

I agree! Get out, talk, socialize. I would say have a nice tea party with the queen but above all feed gods sheep. Help others in meed and fight to create a new system, a decentralized system absent of corruption.

Fluoride is essential. You don't want people shooting up politians and bankers or anything like that.
