I'm not telling you not to work hard. I work hard, my family has worked hard, but to work hard in order to accumulate more stuff is fucking asinine. Why didn't he also talk about how we accumulate mountains of debt, specifically bad debt like credit cards? If you borrow money to buy shit you don't need in order to impress people that don't care about you, then is that really working hard? Not in my book.
Yes, the Wright brothers worked hard. So did Sam Walton, along with Warren Buffett and Henry Ford. Living in the same house for 50 years, driving a late model Ford F-150, so that he could carry his bird dogs around with him is how it's supposed to be done. If you want to be super rich, FINE! But do it the Sam Walton way, not the Larry Ellison way.
