Toronto Occupier Baffled by Work Ethic

A 38-year-old protestor at Occupy Toronto said:

“It’s weird protesting on Bay Street [Toronto’s financial district]. You get there at 9 a.m. and the rich bankers who [sic] you want to hurl insults at and change their worldview have been at work for two hours already. And then when it’s time to go, they’re still there. I guess that’s why they call them the one per cent. I mean, who wants to work those kinds of hours? That’s the power of greed.”

No, it’s not greed that motivates. It’s called the Achievement ethic.
H/t my dear friend Bill.

  6. wow mike the triangle head and DCG, (blonde)..what smug clueless morons you are….having fallen for the work ethic tripe, the millions you make are yours?, they go to someone else…and who is that?…welll guess what, it is the same people that it always is…yes, those two families that own 46% of the universe…rock and rot…yes….and then everyone else is a moronic hippie….?
    people who question the intrinsic amorality or could it be immorality of the dept/fiat system are hippies….and morons? to quote from wikipedia…”Some philosophers argue further that rational human adults may even be able to choose to be amoral; i.e., humans may discard codes or systems of morality that have been purely socially constructed by their native cultures. Much of this argument revolves around the definition of morality in terms of its universality in human beings. If a rational human being can in any way override a (possibly inborn) capacity to establish notions of right and wrong, it is arguable that human beings have the ability to become amoral. Amoral should not be confused with immoral, which refers to the intentional doing or thinking of doing what oneself knows (or believes) to be wrong” .of course, that couldn´t be wall street bankers, could it?
    kneejerkers like you are not welcome in discussions about ethics and morals.

    • Why mention the color of my hair? Talk about kneejerk…
      I’ll keep my work ethic and my money and investments TYVM. Unfortunately I can’t keep more of my money as the govt robs me through taxes that they waste on everything imaginable. Talk about amoral.

    • Next time you interview for a job with a poor person, be sure and let us know how it worked out for you.

    • So why work to earn anything for yourself when you ask someone else to give it to you at their convenience? Am I missing something? [Scratches head.]

    • I see you use a Wiki reference that includes citation of Thomas Donaldson (a corporate reformer) and his book, “Corporations and Morality”, which includes a chapter on “social contract”. Undoubtedly some book you read on your own or was required reading at some liberal college.
      Too bad college (or whatever) didn’t teach you to be a productive part of society and make a living for yourself (you know, having a WORK ethic).

    • And seeing how your IP address indicates you are in Portugal, I don’t know why you don’t have a work ethic. Afterall, your IP address indicates you are in Lisbon, Portugal – one of the major economic centres on the continent, according to Wiki. Also the wealthiest in region in Portugal, the 25th most livable city in the world, and the city occupies 32nd place of highest gross earnings in the world. Sounds like a great place to make a living! Course if you believe in “work ethic tripe”, you’re probably not part of that very productive society.
