I wouldn't have to be rich to just pay out of pocket for all but the biggest expenses, simply to avoid having to deal with suppliers and insurance and bullshit slow-witted grating customer service people. But I'd need to be at least a little better off financially. It's such a blessing to get a reasonable, fairly efficient professional on the phone when you have to talk to somebody on the phone about something. Isn't it?
We should make currently low-paying jobs much higher-paying, and currently really high-paying jobs much lower-paying. Janitors and phone service people and restaurant line workers and farm hands and roofers and road construction people should all make at least, like, $150/hr. CEOs can keep their fancy offices and have money to take other people out to lunch with, and maybe even get a company car to use, but they should be paid no more than $27.50/hr.
And I shall make myself available for further (and extensive) pronouncements on how things should be, for when they come asking.
