I total get that. Why does it fall on Joe Lewis to prop up all 200 of his businesses. People seem to be forgetting hes employed these people in the first place and this mess isnt his doing. Its tragic the impact its having on peoples lives rich and poor. Im not saying people should hold vigils for the super rich that are losing vast sums. My point is there seems to be an underlying tone of satisfaction if Lewis was to lose billions in this. People throwing about abuse for a person who has hired/employs over 200k people across his businesses. I wouldn't feel more sad for him over someone being made homeless but id still have sympathy for him. People seem to get a kick out of when those more fortunate fall on harder times. I suppose thats what the british media get off on and all the social media junkies live for these days.Because your analogy completely lacks any context whatsoever and firmly shows why you misunderstood @Colonel Dax in the first place. You're basing who you'd feel sorry for based on the value of the motor instead of what impact it has on the persons life. If the person who loses the cheap car was all he could afford, meaning they have no form of transport, meaning they lose their job and their source of income then it completely changes the perspective than if they can easily afford another car. You can't just say it's worse becauss one would be a bigger financial impact without the full context of how it affects their life hence why it's a completely ridiculous analogy.
And that was where I felt you completely misrepresented ColonelDax, he wasn't saying he doesn't give a shit if people with vast sums of money lose it out of envy. He was saying in the grand scheme of things if it comes down to people who have little keeping a roof over their head and food on the table for their families or billionaires losing a lot of money then he'd rather that billionaires lose some of their wealth to keep more families afloat.
Absolutely nothing to do with the idea that people would think it's fine for Joe Lewis to lose billions but simply prioritising those with less.
