“Capitalism is, among other things, the revitalization of the world thanks to the opportunity to be lucky.  Luck is the great equalizer because almost everyone can benefit from it. The socialist government protected their monsters and, by doing so, killed potential newcomers in the womb.”

“Luck is far more egalitarian than even intelligence. If people were rewarded strictly according to their abilities, things would still be unfair- people don’t choose their abilities. Randomness has the beneficial effect of reshuffling society’s cards, knocking down the big guy.”
