Also the people swift was talking about are probably kind good people but they're still practitioners of rentier capitalism, ie they are part of the ownership class who contribute nothing to society and simply extract money from others.  It's the system they exist in and they're doubtless better than a lot of others in this system but it's still unjust and exploitative.

What I mean is, a lot of rich people's charities are just vanity projects or random shit that happens to align with their own interests, and a lot of times they wouldn't be doing this charity if they didn't think it helped their own image or if there weren't charitable deductions in their taxes.

They did not choose this economic system that we live in, and they cannot change it. For all we know, they would if they could. But they can't, so they're instead playing by the design in the system that they cannot alter, and attempting to make real impact in the lives of those less fortunate. That is very noble.

What would be a better course of action for them? What are you doing that is impacting society in a positive way more so than what they do?

rich people have the most power to change the system, they're well aware of the poverty it creates. if they aren't regularly advocating for a change, gulag.

Rich people are fundamentally wrong by their very existence, just like absolute monarchs used to be, why is this so hard to understand.

"OMG you say fuck the king?!?! When was the last time you gave tax relief to the peasants?!?!"

So a guy makes his fortune by his work ethic and smarts is "wrong"??...more like lazy welfare dingbats as yourself are the very downfall of society. They are rich because people like you are retarded, not their fault they know how to take advantage of the system.
