Hustle culture is different from the industrialist described in the image. Hustle culture isn't about working more, it's about going off on a tangent because the job you've trained for doesn't cut it. In theory a job that pays $70k annually in pure profit should be enough for you to live comfortably, compared to going into to debt on a risky venture with losses for two years. The only reason the latter would outperform in the long-term is because the money is broken. If you just buy Bitcoin then for the most part you're compensated based on your skills and work ethic, rather than your ability to pitch bad ideas to the government for free money.

Indian Chief ‘Two Eagles’ was asked by a white government official; “You have observed the white man for 90 years. You’ve seen his wars and his technological advances. You’ve seen his progress, and the damage he’s done.”

The Chief nodded in agreement.

The official continued; “Considering all these events, in your opinion, where did the white man go wrong?”

The Chief stared at the government official for over a minute and then calmly replied.. “When white man find land, Indians running it, no taxes, no debt, plenty buffalo, plenty beaver, clean water. Women did all the work, Medicine Man free. Indian man spend all day hunting and fishing; all night having sex.”

Then the chief leaned back and smiled; “Only white man dumb enough to think he could improve system like that.”

These simple folk you speak of are incredibly duplicitous in their nature. Has been my personal experience anyways. They turn their nose up at wealth and privilege and act with a false piety in their “simple” world. They treat wealth the only way they know how, with spite. Many see it as something unobtainable for them and often times people cope and come up with all sorts of bullshit excuses as to why they are “content” with the simple life.

Are their a few legitimately contented simple folk out there, who also don’t treat wealth like it’s a dirty word? Sure! However, when given a choice to be rich or poor most sane people will choose to be rich.
