It is written in Genesis 3:19 "In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground; for out of it wast thou taken: for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return". You are entitled to the sweat of your brow. Gorge yourself, but try to maintain your dignity while at it.

Everyone has the sweat on his brow, but not everyone has the ability to keep its earnings. Current taxation criminalizes that.

My opinion alone..
"Ecuadorians Win Judgement Against Chevron in Amazon Case, Company Refuses to Pay". This is the title from a recent news article that everyone should read. I think your question is based on perspective. If Chevron spent millions drilling oil out of the jungle why are the Indians not allowing them to enjoy the fruits of their labor? Why don't they just go extinct and let capitalism rule?
I have NO idea what this means? Lol
