Look at this comment on this article:
"To all of those emoting and claiming moral superiority regarding the life settlement industry, here is your reality check..."
and he then describes himself:
"I am 82 years old.
I have a net worth of $5 million ..."
So my life is not as worthy as those with a high "net worth"? So if he runs over me with a car it's not a crime because I'm a mere TURD to him? And he then goes on about net worth vs. liquidity - I won't know the difference because I'm poor, but people who are BORN wealthy can know the difference, buy insurance, and go to business school to get their MBA - PROOF that you must be born wealthy to get a job!
Reminds me of this that I read:
"The new global city creates a global class, with splendid jobs for people also willing to work hard — and with an MBA to boot. "
No, they're BORN with the ability to get that MBA!
And it reminds me of when I asked if I was foolish for become an actuary because I thought the insurance industry was unethical ... he said "I make $300K a year. You sure are."
Yet I'm the one that's universally considered a failure.
