- Money is everything, and those who say otherwise are merely trying to throw us off the scent.
Time isn't money. That's another lie. Time is freedom and exploration; the meeting of new people; the learning of new things. You give those up in pursuit of wealth, but get them back when you obtain it. For, it's the reverse that's true: Money is time.
(This should have been in his own journal about a year ago, but the guy mysteriously stopped maintaining it - a real shame, considering how much he has to say...)
- It seems odd that the more money you have, the easier it is to keep it. The poorer you are, the less security you have in making a loan, or an investment. You can play stocks, but you can lose quite a bit. With less money, you are less diverse, so you'll be hit harder by any loss. If you're rich, not only can you diversify more, but you can also get into big boy games where if performance isn't met, or profit made, you get a guarantee which is often worth more than the profit initially promised. I'm not sure, but this seems backwards.
Half of me reaches for the bookshelf - the dark side is powerful, but surely a few paragraphs of Ishmael will bring me back to myself.
But the other half holds back, suggesting I should ride out this capitalist rampage and see if it gets a few bills paid.
I suppose I'll sleep on it.
...but if I wake up as another person, this one enjoyed knowing you.
