Americans are sooo greedy

by BIGRICH

Why is success measured by how big your bank account is or how many material possessions you own? If you live your life and be happy but don’t own anything,they refer to you as a loser in America, why is this?

Probably because the bigger your bank account is the more people can get money from you. The more shit you buy the more money others make. It’s just a cycle of everyone trying to get their share of money in the world. Thus, society condemns you if you’re not making money for anyone.

@emptypluto that makes a lot of sense, so in other words,if you’re not generating enough money you’re no good to anyone, the govt who can tax you and the people around you who can take advantage of you, to hell with your personal happiness. Sheesh and we wonder why we have so many deppressed people.

read a news article a few years ago a homeless guy in the bush, although he was a bit close to a bar… council tells him to move on… oh obviously because they aren’t getting any money out of him.

Don’t judge yourself based on other people’s criteria. What they think matters to them and no one else.

Be you. Visit sites like this and set your sights low. ?
(Most of the people who frequent this site are people you’d never want to meet anyways. Seriously. Chronic complainers who blame everything and everyone except for themselves).

It isn’t necessarily about plain greed. It mostly has to do with your willingness to go out and do something to take care of yourself or your family. For instance, if you’re just living off of your parents playing video games all day when you’re 30 years old happy as a clam, yeah people are going to call you a loser because you’re selfishly using someone when you’re fully capable of taking care of yourself.

That’s all it is. Obviously if you have a lot then you’re able to take care of yourself and not mooch off others. Why? Are you a loser?

Not necessarily, but others might say I have no drive or motivation to “move up the ladder” or own property or some shit, that I am very content with my job and I don’t “aspire to be greater”. Am I not “normal” for feeling this way? and no I don’t live with my parents

Quite a few evolutionary psychologists have floated the idea that most of that stuff is done (at times subconsciously) to attract mates.

It may not be a coincidence that for thousands of years, men have competed to build the biggest phallos symbol…

If you’re interested in the topic, Geoffrey Miller has written a book about it called “Spent”.

The thing is, men keep raising the bar for each other. It becomes more and more expensive to impress the ladies. To the detriment of all men. When I say “expensive”, I don’t just mean materially. I also mean you have to be in better shape, better educated, have a better cv, have better manners, better social skills, higher status, etc. etc. etc.

I confess to be ignorant about how the theory deals with the reality of women entering (and potentially replacing men in higher education and the workforce). My guess would be female competition. The better your career, the less reliant you are on men, and thus (potentially) the better choice you will have.

True. But you see for xy and z reasons I have previously justified that, in the first place mating is a stupid game I don’t wish to play, and at any rate I don’t believe in volition.
