    Paid work is only enslavement if you have to do it.

    How lovely.

    When all is said and done, it is the music we remember.

    So I will sing my song, I will sing my song, just for you.

    The aristocrats ruled Britain for a hundred years in peace before the settlement of Oz.

    And so we inherited the aristocratic virtues and vices.

    And of course we democratised the aristocratic vices and virtues and now each one of us, one and all, embody them.

    I know it is hard to believe that the ordinary Aussie bastard is an aristocrat in disguise.

    They used to call us the workers' paradise, but in reality, we are the aristocrats' paradise.

    But a paradise no less.

    Well said. Yeah, looking down on people who have to work to survive smacks of elitism which is a stone's throw away from sheltered cluelessness. It often has to do with disregarding what others have had to work for to make the elitist life possible for another. I have more respect for the slave than for the slave owner, or for the person who works for pay than the one who dismisses their worth as a human being. There is more wisdom to be found when a person has to face something difficult, than when they are in a position to take it for granted.

    "....the worker is worth his wages"

    What price will you sell yourself (or is it just your body)for?

    Compensation takes many forms.

    It must be hard to maintain the lifestyle without the servants and the tenant farmers.

    I don't think that's universally true at all, Victor.
