    I didn't see minimum_wage's comment that way.

She's never attacked you for owning things.

    It's neigh impossible to escape the system legally.

Certainly - but she's committed to acting illegally, damn the consequences on everyone else. And then she wants you to feel bad for succeeding legally.

    To have a home and food, you have to partake.

Exactly. Therefore, there is no moral ground, like the one she pretends to, to accost those who are partaking.

    I don't share wage's politics specifically, but fuck, there is so much wrong with the what this article illustrates and the fucking defense bill that just passed. We are all in this system whether we like it or not, and it's full of hypocrisy.

This article has never accused me of wrongdoing for owning something.

    I'm just not sure if hypocrisy is all bad.

If _wage feels like stating, for the record, that she attacks people not because she believes her ethical position to be superior but because she's a hypocrite, I will unmute her, un-ignore her, and fuckin' A, follow her.
