Is focused on the belief that the common person is the most righteous person, and anyone who might be a braggart or business minded is somehow jaded towards life?

    I'm struggling to understand the ins and outs of this type of behavior. Is it a ruse to cover up the fact that their lives may not have turned out as important as they would have liked? Is it an acceptance of their own lifestyle and a expression of a principle they have come to embrace simply because they do not know how to live life any other way? Are they secretly wishing that they could escape their everyday lives and be someone else or are they truly happy the way they are?

    Ok, how about a sentence that doesn't end in a question mark.. lol.

    I know someone with this attitude and it seems to me that he is somewhat depressed in reality. When he is in his "element" he is probably very happy - people like him because he does exude an "equalizing" type personality - he has a way with people (superficially) that people seem to enjoy. He grew up on a farm and definitely has a pretty “easygoing” mentality.

    But then, there is another side to him - someone who (ultimately) feels a bit like a failure because he's not where he wanted to be in life. Someone who realizes that he might have missed his potential. Someone who sacrificed his dreams because he did it out of a sense of duty towards others.

    Sadly, if he does feel this way he refuses to discuss it, leading to a vicious cycle of negative emotions which people close to him become a victim of. It's as if, by denying himself the opportunity to believe that there is more to life, that he somehow has "risen above it" when in reality, nothing could be further from the truth. It's almost as if his "arrogance" (for lack of a better word) is a cover for his real self. The self that is crushed by hopes and dreams that never got a chance to come to fruition.
    What are these cyclical negative emotions of which you speak?

    a wonderful speech from the Fountainhead

    I do not mean to say that those of blue collar livelihood are "parasites" but I do mean do say that those who latch on to successful individuals and try to steal from them, bring them down and feel entitled to the fruits of their labor are parasites. such behavior can only be akin to monkeys as shown in the following experiment.

    Watch your language, Mister!!
    That's just a political and/ or religious belief. It's just people believing things. (Believing things that may be annoying to me or you, but to them it's just a reality. They're not monkeys!)

    Edit: Excellent video though. My roommate came wandering in to watch it.

    Wait, wut? People who sometimes do backbreaking labor on farms, in coal mines, etc. 8-12 hours per day are parasites? Who is the real parasite making wealth off the fruits of someone's labor?

    Who latches on to successful individuals and tries to steal from them? Groupies? High class call girls?

    You have a lot of opinions for a 19 year old in college. I bet you've never even had a job, yet you're talking about people stealing from the fruits of other people's labor.

    So, like, as a college student who has never worked you qualify as "parasite", right?
