Meh... The Egyptians were putting together things like the Pyarmids and the Sphinx then....
I was going to say, "fair enough", but going to also point out that you said: "...maybe the easiest way to put it into perspective is to view the stock market as legalized gambling." This is, in my view, is an incredible overgeneralization about a phenomenon (the stock market) whose value is driven primarily by fundamentals. Fads and momentum can certainly matter in the short run, but there is an intrinsic value to the assets that constitute the stock market. Then, above,...

You don't seem to get the larger point that's being made, that 'free' means all kinds of junk, including things that are bad for you, that come with it.
No one 'deserves' it. They should *expect* it.Unless they choose not to, or are stupid.
Unfortunately, 'cheap' often goes with 'harmful.' There are all kinds of good reasons for why the two are associated.
