: DO YOU REALLY THINK BILL GATES WORKS HARDER THAN A COLUMBIAN COAL MINER OR AN ENGLISH HEALTH WORKER? IS HE EVEN SMARTER THAN MANY WORKING CLASS PEOPLE WITH ONE THOUSANTH OF HIS WEALTH? TECHNOLOGICAL ADVANCES LIKE THE DEVELOPMENT OF MICROSOFT ARE COLLECTIVE EFFORTS INVOLVING THOUSANDS OF WORKERS YET ECONOMICALLY POWERFUL INDIVIDUALS LIKE BILL GATES ARE ABLE TO EXPLOIT THESE WORKERS TO DIVERT CONSIDERABLE WEALTH TO THEMSELVES. THIS IS PARASITISM.
