    "Humans are too selfish"

    and also the attitude is get most of the monkeys working and then sell what they produce at a profit to you, the middleman, whilst not producing anything yourself.

    It then becomes a game between the middlemen to get the best houses, cars, political power, etc with the money they have made by selling the products the monkeys are continuing to make in their unenlightened state.

    It's not the least charm of a theory that it is refutable. The hundred-times-refuted theory of "free will" owes its persistence to this charm alone; some one is always appearing who feels himself strong enough to refute it - Friedrich Nietzsche

    The kākāpō has been crowned Bird of the Year in an election that had it all; a delayed start, alliances, and voter fraud.

    What about the non-working monkeys, of which there are many, that sit in front of their Smart TV all day and expect the working monkeys to keep them in the manner they are accustomed, by way of taxes, paid to the government, by the said working monkeys?

    Hopefully they've already done their productive bit during earlier years and paid their respective taxes to cover their parasitic behaviour later on in their lives.

    Are you talking about those who did Paper Runs, Grocery Runs, Mowed Lawns, (whilst at school), and then had a job and paid taxes for the next 60 years?

    Oh right. Neither my father nor my mother did that sort of thing while at school.
    My mum had a job, but then sometimes she didn't either.
    My dad retired early, not cause he was rich, because of health...he got ACC for 6 months then they booted him off it and they lived on my mums pay for a bit until she could retire. (And she was older than him).

    Stop generalising.

    Not all beneficiaries are lazy people.
    My brother is one, he has had 2 jobs in his entire life. NOt for lack of trying either.

    And friend of mine, she doesn't work now due to major health issues, and her partner lost his on covid.....he has only just been back at a job in the last 3 weeks.
    They had to apply for the dole...because of her, WINZ decided they would get Supported Living instead which is better than the $401.20 they would have been on, by not much...
    They have a mortgage.

    Oh I'm sure there are some genuine cases, but too many fit THIS mould.
