Sort of like saying, "Don't hate slave-owners, hate slavery as an institution. Free labor is desirable. Capitalism."

Doesn't sound so great when it's applied to something that we as a society (eventually) decided was morally indefensible. And forcing people to be wage slaves so they can pay 30%+ of their income for housing is indefensible, especially if the reason is just to enrich other people at their expense (literally and figuratively).

Slave-owners perpetuated slavery — they weren't powerless "players" in a "game" they didn't control or were forced to play, they benefitted from it and wanted it to continue. Just like you do.

Eventually we fought a long and bloody war that ended the formal system of human exploitation called slavery. So hate the player and the game — and especially players who try to pretend they're not the reason the game is still being played ...

I make a comfortable living without exploiting other people — as do most of us. Guys like you are the outliers: Pretending they're powerless not to take advantage of others, when it's really just a function of their own greed.

Just own it, dude, instead of blaming some mythical "game". The fact that you trot out lame excuses shows you know what you're doing is not OK ...

Your Gordon Gekko retort-generator is really lame. You're clearly incapable of offering any sort of reasoned argument to justify exploitation, so all you can do is try to deflect people's attention from it. But since you obviously don't care how your greed affects other people, at least be a big boy and own it ...

It's all about bucks, kid. The rest is conversation.

Translation: "I don't care about anyone but myself."

Welcome to me-first America. Of course, when your housing-exploitation hustle collapses, you'll be crying for a government bail-out and suddenly it'll be all about "we" instead "me" ...

I don't throw darts at a board. I bet on sure things. Read Sun-tzu, The Art of War. Every battle is won before it is ever fought.

Right, because nobody ever lost money on real estate.

And seriously, Sun Tzu? Is this a parody account?

Sun-tzu: If your enemy is superior, evade him. If angry, irritate him. If equally matched, fight, and if not split and reevaluate.
