But some people seem to want things even more unreasonable than a hot cup of tea. More than want: demand, and expect.
A sentiment I have seen recently expressed several times is that banks are evil. Banks are evil because they won’t give large loans to people on limited incomes. Banks are evil because they don’t help out parents. Banks are evil because they charge interest and impose fees. Banks are evil because… well, because they make sound business decisions in a capitalist society, apparently.
I boggle at the notion that a business should be required to be charitable just because somebody feels themselves to be deserving. You might be Mother Of The Year with nine officially gifted children, but if you’re living on Centrelink payments I don’t see why a bank should trust you with their money.
The world does not operate in a way which is fair or right or just. I believe that anybody over the age of sixteen should be able to grasp that. You might not like it, and yes you’ve got a right to complain or – even better – to try to change things. But I’ll tell you this for free: you’ll never get anything just because you want it.
