Duh. That is the entire reason I believe in a strong safety net for such people. The economy requires many people to take this risk for it to function and the more the better for the economy as a whole. Every failed business makes a contribution to other business revenue and to tax revenue during their time in business.
I'm sorry you choose to believe in something in the absence of all mathematical logic. Certainly you can't subsidize 50% unprofitable businesses based on the profits of the others. Not to mention that to try to do so is just stupid.
I don't know why you decided to think you are talking with someone without business experience, if you knew me personally you would find it kind of ridiculous. Is your whole collapse of logic here because of a semantic choice of word?
I have no idea why. It could be your complete detachment from business concepts and reality as a whole.
Please familiarize yourself with a common English term: to award a loan.
There was no hidden political meaning in my choice of phrase. You really never encountered this before or are you, as I have suspected all along, just trolling here?
The word you used was "reward".
Again, is semantics all you have? Punishment or consequences the argument holds the same meaning, the results of the failure are too dire.
Curiously, I do speak the language, semantics and all. By the way, semantics means "meaning". If you are not capable of writing what you mean, why should I rewarding you with any attention at all?
But if you didn't grasp my meaning, I'm saying directly, the results are exactly what they should be. If you try and fail, I don't care. Don't expect me or anyone else to analyze your failure to try and decide how close you were to not failing. No one gets points for pretending.
I think our conversation has been entirely unproductive from your end so I can only conclude you are trolling. You have bounced from strawmen, to dodging arguments entirely, to hooking on to random word choice to try and argue semantics instead of the issue at hand...It's fairly disappointing.
I'm quite sure I understand your fantasy world.
I'm quite sure you understand my reality world.
I'm not at all sure you understand your world is a fantasy.
So to be completely clear, let me restate your thesis. You are saying:
Because we should relieve the successful of credit for their success, (it was only luck)
Then we should relieve the failures of responsibility for their failures. (it was only bad luck)
I am saying unconditionally, that this argument and the self-referential logic behind it, IS BUNK! Entirely content free. It isn't even sound as wishful thinking. It doesn't even provide an intriguing plot line for a fantasy.
You are free to live your life following those tenets. I'm quite certain you will find your life filled with unexplainable "bad luck".
I assure you, however, that bad luck will not be unexplainable to me or others.
[This is a metaphor]
If you jump of a cliff, you are much more "in need" of the ability of flight than I am. If as it turns out you don't receive the reward of flight, you are free to consider that as "bad luck". Fortunately, you will only have to ponder your bad luck for a very short while. The reason you jumped off the cliff has very little bearing on the situation. There is zero difference to gravity if you jumped because you were on crack, of if you jumped because you were testing your handcrafted flight suit. If you don't succeed in flying, it is not gravity's fault.
And it's not my fault either. Not even if I decide to handcraft a working flight suit.
