That's ridiculous

If I want a new car, I am being greedy by definition. There is not one thing wrong with being greedy, claims to the contrary come straight from the Frankfurt School.

After I decide that I want a new car, I then decide what I'm going to do -- what my human action will be -- to get that new car. I can either be an economic activist and earn the new car, or I can be a political activist and demand regulations/laws which will allow me to get a new car without having earned anything.

There is economic activism and there is political activism, and only one of them is moral. There is no third way.
