From 401k To 201k To 001k
So, politicians and Wall Street are conspiring to raid 401k's, the really big ones anyway. That is what I took away from this article:
Class Warfare's Next Target: 401(k) Savings
This is precisely the type of stuff that would get me really riled up in the past. But now I know better. I fully expect Big Government to rob me hand over fist. I've realized that fiat currency is a political commodity in the first place. Render unto Caesar what is Caesar's, right?
Instead, non-Morons ought to be amassing the unconfiscatable: spiritual wealth, family, friends, and goodwill.
I'm in no way condoning the theft and illiberality of politicians. I'm just just trying to diminish the expectations of the soon-to-be-really-pissed-off.
