I judge people's worth by how much they offer me personally, just like anyone else.

Everything else is a lie :V

This raises the fundamental question of defining value. What is value? What do human beings contribute? I would argue that at the fundamental level, our values are culturally-subjective. Your example of income as an identifier of cultural worth is accurate in the United States, but not so in Sweden, for example, where making too much is frowned upon.

Albert Einstein proposed separating the idea of "success" and "value." A person who does well for himself does not necessarily create value. Rather, a valuable person may not be recognized at all from his work. Someone who asks society for large amounts of compensation is necessarily less valuable than an identical person who does not. A surgeon earning $300,000 is necessarily soaking up a marginal $300,000 in base value. So perhaps the position of a surgeon is valuable, but the person who consumes value to fill that position is not.

Be careful of pegging twenty-somethings as children. I have a mental filter that turns "young adult" into "grown-ass adult." By your twenties you have literally spent years as an adult. It's no one's fault but your own if you haven't done shit by then.

Einstein was a fucking Jew, what does he know about anything that matters to real folks?

This thread was sorta intended to be inflammatory. (I'll let you guess the context)

The truth is, "society" is clusterfuck of retards who think this way. They judge themselves in terms of others around them but idolize people with traits they admire. Generally these are superficial: money, power, fame... but sometimes others like heroism, innovation or challenging the very ethic and moral infrastructure of civilization.

You'll notice the conflation in responses here; people didn't think of objectively admirable traits but ones they find SUBJECTIVELY appealing. Welcome to the world of Why Democracy Doesn't Work.

So basically the entire thread was a "social experiment" to bolster your half-baked, quasi-randian bullshit? See the only problem is that was pretty fucking obvious from the initial post.

Ricky has a secret.

The secret is that he's dumb.
