capitalism thought 

“Give a man a fish and he eats for a day. Teach a man to fish and he eats for a lifetime.” Except our way of teaching people to fish is to say “There’s a store that sells fishing rods. There’s a body of water that may have fish in it. You’re on your own.”

If they want to borrow a fishing rod? “No. Go into debt to get one.”

If they want to know what kind of bait to use? “Figure it out yourself.”

How do I cook the fish? “Figure it out yourself.”

The fish has toxic levels of mercury! “Your fault for fishing there.”

@sanspoint Teach a man to fish, you've got him paying student loans to you for life.
