Be careful with such generalizations, you may be referring to yourself as an asshole...


Most definitely. In Australia, we are required by law to get superannuation management, which invests in a wide range of investments.

I may be an arsehole by definition, that doesn't invalidate the generalization. Investors are arseholes because they're simply there to make money off of money and don't understand the value of working towards something.

Sure, in modern civilization, they're necessary to keep the wheels turning. Much like your arsehole is necessary to keep your body functioning, but at least your arsehole doesn't control your brain.*

* I cannot speak for all people here and elsewhere though.
