Yes he did, he was a CEO and simliar, he wasn't some lower management or a technician. And those others weren't better anyway i assure you.

Boards have huge influences. And yes the corporate world is a hard one. But the people in it choose to compete. You either end on top or lose. He understood that and I've got no problem with him being a hard bussiness man in a world like that.

Yes it should.

Read about Microsoft's corporate practices, maybe you'll change your mind.

I'm complaining that he lied about it. Good old Bill giving away all his wealth, look, rich people are not that bad!. Aaaaand it turned out to be a big fat lie.

I never heard him say that and even if he did I'd forgive him for all the godd he's done.

Believe me, I'm not making friends on this site for saying this. But I personally believe there should be a cap on how much you can make. This cap should be really damn high, but is should still be there.

More money does make people more happy. But only up until a certain point. When someone has so much money that he can't reasonably improve his life with money, then he doesn't need more.

There are a lot of rich people who are scum of the earth. But I do not consider Bill Gates to be one of them. We shouldn't punish people who try to be different from their counterparts.

Unless you believe he's lying about that as well. In that case I respectfuly disagree.

There were some voting limitations, slaves and woman couldn't vote. The slave issue wasn't sorted until the passage of the 15th amendment in 1870 and woman's suffrage not until 1920's I believe.

As an American I completely agree with your analysis of how our two party majority isn't healthy for us. George Washington himself warned of some of the dangers of it in his farewell address. Even back in the country's infancy he could see where it was going. I recommend anyone interested in the topic to read it...

avalon.law.yale.edu/18th_century/washing.asp

The pertinent part...

"I have already intimated to you the danger of parties in the State, with particular reference to the founding of them on geographical discriminations. Let me now take a more comprehensive view, and warn you in the most solemn manner against the baneful effects of the spirit of party generally.

This spirit, unfortunately, is inseparable from our nature, having its root in the strongest passions of the human mind. It exists under different shapes in all governments, more or less stifled, controlled, or repressed; but, in those of the popular form, it is seen in its greatest rankness, and is truly their worst enemy.

The alternate domination of one faction over another, sharpened by the spirit of revenge, natural to party dissension, which in different ages and countries has perpetrated the most horrid enormities, is itself a frightful despotism. But this leads at length to a more formal and permanent despotism. The disorders and miseries which result gradually incline the minds of men to seek security and repose in the absolute power of an individual; and sooner or later the chief of some prevailing faction, more able or more fortunate than his competitors, turns this disposition to the purposes of his own elevation, on the ruins of public liberty.

Without looking forward to an extremity of this kind (which nevertheless ought not to be entirely out of sight), the common and continual mischiefs of the spirit of party are sufficient to make it the interest and duty of a wise people to discourage and restrain it. "

That's quite interesting. Did every American citizen have the right to vote in that time? Because if so I find it amazing he predicted this. After all except for some cases in classical times there hadn't been many democratic systems of governement up until then.

The connections are what give you sensory information. But you can't be "tricked" into thinking you're conscious. Being tricked requires consciousness.
#100 - hongkonglongdong (02/22/2015) [-]
Well I hope you're right, I really do. But there is definitely a debate going on about this (involving people way more knowledgeable than me). I'm just pointing out that there is a debate, which is pretty worrying.
#101 - soloman (02/22/2015) [-]
Really? Any links? Didn't know that was ever in question.
#107 - hongkonglongdong (02/22/2015) [-]
Well, I mean, I don't really know how to link a scientific debate to you. But if you google it a bunch of the arguments for and against show up.

Makes me sound like a lazy arse.
