How come it is inevitable that the irrational man will accuse the rationl man of being greedy? Does the irrational man equate ratonality with greed? Why?
Yes, I believe that man always acts in his best interest, but exactly who's self interest should he act in, and why would that make him greedy?
As long as a man produces more than he uses, nobody has the right to call him greedy. The man that invents a process that adds 1% production to the workforce could not spend the money he has saved everyone in two lifetimes, so why is he considered greedy if he gets rich off of it? This is not rationality, it is being irrationaly angry that he did what you did not. What i it you want when you treat the man like a criminal? A handout maybe?
The socialists here likely believe a man shoud be paid by effort, not result. If that is true, it should be the idiot that makes the processharder that would be rewarded, since he would increase the effort required for all work...
