1)So you're suggesting that its okay for people to pursue jobs that they're shitty at even though it will likely be detrimental to them? The point I'm trying to make is that people should stay within the limits of the strengths and what they're good at. No one is good at EVERY job.
2) Its more based on productivity. However, I think that we should move to narrow jobs down to only those that promote the progression of society as a whole and not those that only serve to satisfy greed. We should also work towards being more efficient and less wasteful.
3) Lucky you! I didn't even get to go overseas. I did 3 years with the Canadian forces infantry 1RCR. They wanted me to sign another 3 to go overseas. We work with SF in training scenarios, other times we just assist with admin stuff for them i.e bitch work. Not sure what you're asking in your last question. You're paid based on your level of influence/importance of job. Clarification please.
4) Work isn't work if you enjoy what you're doing. For me, if all my basics were covered in terms of living conditions and what not, if I got to do what I loved to do, I'd take that in a heart beat. For example, if my entertainment, an food, and a reasonable living space was provided in exchange for doing a job I love, I'd take that in a heart beat. I'm sure you can think of a job that you'd do for free if your basics were covered.
5) I would just choose to have as little bills as possible. You might not be able to pay your bills by working for free, but you can certainly find a job you enjoy doing where work isn't really work that can pay your bills.
6) For me, I would share my wealth regardless of earned or not earned. In my opinion, once you reach a certain level of wealth, any dollar amount above that is just too greedy. I would provide for my kids as well, but they should understand that they can't rely on the money I've provided them and that their goal should be to earn a living as well. To me, anything above 5 million is excessive. People don't need a personal jet, a dozen lambos, and 10 mansions that you only live in once a year. That's too much. There are too many other people out there suffering (not to say that you just give them money, but more so, provide them with some form of training so they can be productive or so they can create new jobs). So if I had a 1 billion cash, I'd likely distribute wealth more or less equally because generally everyone has a role to play and are interdependent. In terms of saving for my kids, well, after I'm dead I don't really have any worries right? If they can't survive with the huge leg up I've given them, then they aren't earning what they have. I believe people need to generally earn what they have, but I also think everyone can prosper somewhat equally if we align our goals.
In our current society, I don't think its possible due to the stratification of everything from race to class. The way it works now, someone has to be the one making pennies in order for someone else to get rich off them.
I served with the canadian forces Infantry 1st battalion Royal Canadian Regiment from 2007-2010. I was supposed to go over to afghanistan as part of an Afghan army training group. Now I'm serving part-time as a reservist while I'm completing my degree.
