Well, I own quite a bit of stock myself (mostly in mutual funds), so I probably should take offense at your characterizing me as a "parasite". :-D
Don't fool yourself. You don't own anything. You are gambling a few thousands of dollars at the stock market, that is all. The few thousands of dollars you are gambling are not enough to own anything. The guyz who are in control have billions and they get to decide what the company does. You don't decide anything. You just hope the guy who decides has the same interests as you. That is gambling. More often than not the guys who decide will use your money to screw you along with the rest of the population.
Those guyz don't work. They don't need to. They are not even aware that people work. They don't even screw you directly. They pay people to screw you. They don't even know how the people they pay do screw you.
