Things I Hate: Yachts

Published in Misc - 1 min to read

I really hate yachts. They are the embodiment of the evils of capitalism. The tangible representation of “fuck you money”. To own a yacht is simply to have too much personal wealth, and to refuse to use your excess to help others who could leverage it better than you. Nobody needs a yacht - imagine if we just liquidated every yacht in the world and reallocated the money into public education and healthcare. We’d probably solve every major issue currently facing global society. But instead, the ultra wealthy get to cruise along the high seas, sipping champagne, their days of honest labour long behind them (if they ever existed to begin with), completely oblivious to the struggles of the people who don’t own yachts. Anyway, the point is - I really hate yachts.
