“But I paid into the system”

The butthurt in these comments.

TLDR:

“I worked hard for a third of my life, I can sell your teeth fillings if I want because my dad fought in the war!” – seriously, there’s one like that almost verbatim.

Lots of people buy into Ponzi schemes. 

Doesn’t make them entitled to anything though.

There is no pension pot. It’s a metaphor. It is immediately spent.

When you take out, you take from current (young) workers.

The older take out insanely more than they put in. That’s theft.

Damn do we need an update on this.

Strange, it won’t let me properly link to one of the greatest Clarey videos of all time.

It looks like a dead link.

But if you hit play, it does.

They keep doing this to my links.
