One thing to notice about how capitalist ethics works is that they pretend that rich people who absolutely are profiting from the exploitation of workers and oppressed people (which is where profit comes from to begin with) can be made morally good if they do it less directly to keep their own hands clean.
Invest in a firm that invests in a company that shoots workers who try to strike. Invest in a firm that invests in a company of literal mercenary war criminals. Donate to a PAC to donate to a politician that ensures rich people’s interests are upheld. Ignore where resources and supply chains come from but keep profiting from them.
None of that is actually better than doing it yourself. This attempt to eliminate responsibility by spreading it out more among their class is rich people bullshit that people should stop accepting.
Investments are not the opposite of responsibility for exploitation, they’re a mechanism for managing the system. It’s about divvying up the profits from exploiting workers and oppressed people between the ruling class. It’s not a neutral activity when it comes to systems of exploitation, it’s a piece of how they maintain operation.
If you live with consumer debt, you are not alone. According to U.S. Federal Reserve data U.S. households have on average $15,863 in credit card debt and $33,090 in student loans. The upside to the personal debt crisis is that there are tried and true methods for getting rid of it. Here is a step-by-step guide to getting out of debt, once and for all:
1) Get real and collect statements for each and every one of your debts.
2) Get your free Credit.com credit report to double-check the accuracy of your debts, including notes of missed payments and credit limits.
3) Create a list of all your debt, including interest rates, monthly minimum payments and any deadlines.
4) Create a monthly budget, and figure out how much you can afford to pay towards your debt.
5) Research lower rates. Depending on your credit score, you may qualify for credit cards with lower rates.
6) Call the holder of any outstanding medical bills and negotiate.
7) If you’re totally overwhelmed with this process, or truly believe that you cannot dig out of debt on your current income, get professional advice.
Sugar babies don’t let these posts fool you. A real sugar daddy won’t be creepy. He will treat you like the woman you are. He will worship you. He will teach you how to become as successful as he is, while helping you out. If you really want to use this business to succeed, don’t just cry for money, ask how to be successful.
