Anonymous asked: Oh please. Capitalism: To each according to one’s own hard work. Read a book! :)
Oh, shit, you’re right… OH WAIT. What’s this…
Working poor? But I thought hard work always rendered wealth????? OMG LOOK AT THIS SHIT THOUGH.
More poor people in America have a job than not??? WHAAAAATT? But, graph, anon told me hard work yields wealth!
Well would you take a fucking look at this. Do you know what this means? Not only are all these hard workers poor (but hard work makes people rich????), but capitalism is also hella racist. Socialism and communism both give everyone the same opportunities, but why would we want that?! That would take white privilege out of the world of work. Equal opportunity for all colors? Fuck that, right? I prefer capitalism, where the class system and minimal regulation of business allows blatant discrimination in the work place.
I mean, surely the rich get rich by working hard and being honest. This is America, right?
Whoa! Excuse me, graph? Anon told me hard work yielded wealth??? This can’t be right! The actual workers of corporations bust their asses to make the profit for the corporations??? If this were the case, that would mean that CEOs *gasp* STEAL profit from workers???? WHAAAATTT?????
Hard work does not render wealth in a capitalist setting, or the term “working poor” wouldn’t exist. Look around you! :)

My name is Wesley James Lock I’m an artist and an aspiring biologist living on the west coast of Florida. For as long as I can remember I have loved two things, art, and animals. I started studying both from a very young age and my dream has always been to make a career out of it. Unfortunately I dropped out of school for personal and health reasons and recently had to quit my job as well. I had been working construction for the last couple years but kept getting injured and just can’t do it anymore.
I can still make art, and want to bring back to life my dream of making it as a wildlife illustrator. I’d love to start selling prints and doing commissions again to bring myself back into it.
If you like my work and are interested in buying or commissioning a piece please send me a message, or if you would be kind enough to share this I’d greatly appreciate it.
I work in a wide range of budgets and always enjoy a challenge. Thank you for taking the time to read this, be well <3
