Rule #255: Deadbeats

At some point in time, EVERYONE in society has a responsibility
to contribute. I agree with taking a break now and then or taking some time to travel and see the world. But eventually you have to contribute something. Personally, myself and most people I know have paid taxes into the system to the tune of approximately half a million clams. And that's just income tax. But I don't think it should stop there. There is plenty of time to volunteer and give back. One of my goals (should I ever become wealthy enough) is to become a philanthropist.

  I also understand that people need a hand every once in a while and certainly when I retire I'm going to enjoy the fruits of my labors. But during our prime, eventually, when the time is right, it'll be time to give back. Whether it be financially through taxes or contributions, or through volunteer work. We all have to realize that we live in a society that wasn't created to be our bottomless bag of party favors. Actually, I don't know why it was created in the first place. But what I do know is that it can't work properly if certain people live with a sense of entitlement that makes them feel it's OK to live off the sweat of the hard working masses. These folks, are what we consider the "deadbeats"

Basically, what I'm saying here is this: "If your 40, still live in your moms basement, play video games all day, don't work and the busiest part of your day is brushing crumbs off the front of your stained t-shirt... GET OFF YOUR ASS AND DO SOMETHING, for the good of the land!

Working together. THAT'S what the new world is all about! Have you ever helped a stranger out just for the hell of it? Give it a try. I guarantee it'll make you feel better than the person you helped.

In the new world, EVERYONE who is capable will contribute. Not because they're forced to, but because they understand it's the right thing to do.
