    the OP dealt with a group of people whom were both blue collar and philosophically parasitic. thus, people accused the original poster of being predjudiced against blue collar workers, so I posted the video to make the distinction between blue collar and entitlement mentality which is what the OP was really expressing disgust towards.
    Edit: I was really defending hard blue collar workers as much condemning parasitic economic philosophy, though I suppose I didn't communicate this clearly enough

    I know this is kind of nitpicky towards your post, but I didn't see anything in the OP that implied that the friend was parasitic or had a sense of entitlement. I understood it to mean that some citizens of low socioeconomic status have some sort of self limiting belief that they can't/shouldn't attempt to move to a higher status in life. He implied that his friend may be unhappy because of this self limiting belief.

    And also, that some blue collar workers may actually be prejudice towards anyone who does want to be successful with their money and career. He's asking why.

    hmm, I suppose I thought it was related enough to post, but I guess you disagree (which is fine)

    And what, pray tell, is parasitic economic philosophy, If I may ask?

    parasitic economic philosophy is
    - feeling entitled to the fruits of another man's labor
    - condemnation of those who are more successful than one's self
    - collectivism
    - belief that man exist for the purpose of serving others and it therefore inadequate if he does not desire this purpose

    Thanks for explaining your rationale. I disagree that the OP describes a sense of entitlement at all (the OP's perception seems to be plain old resentment of people who are not like the OP's friend in some way that is unclear) but the OP is vague enough to mean anything, I suppose. Thanks for clarifying.

    I do disagree, but at the same time know that this topic is likely to go off in many different directions.

    (psst...(whispers) don't call people parasites though. It raises too many eyebrows.)

    So, capitalism?

    - condemnation of those who are more successful than one's self
    How does that involve economic philosophy? How do you define success?

    - collectivism
    All collectivism is parasitic? Better throw the family out the window then. Those damned children leeching off their parents.

    - belief that man exist for the purpose of serving others and it therefore inadequate if he does not desire this purpose

    So it's parasitic to live for giving to others. Right. That makes perfect sense. :rolleyes2:

    This is how I interpreted the OP. It seems like he's searching for us to say that his (ex)friend is jealous, but doesn't want to admit to it, so he is taking it out on the OP by attacking his profession. which is not completely unwarranted. I don't know, maybe we're projecting too much.

    My parents (mostly my dad) seem to have a similar view towards anything deemed "academic", i.e. theory is all well and good, but in the real world it doesn't have much value. Also that professors are out of step with normal people.
