A request to all Blinders

Adobe / Other ⊙.☉
Nov 2, 2019 46 Comments

We are a bit fortunate in terms of having basic necessities in life. The whole TC frenzy is good from the sense of outdoing oneself, getting more competitive and growing. However, when portrayed as a rat race, some kind of lethal competition of stepping on one another to get ahead is just purely pitiful. Almost 7 Billion people don't even have the luxury of AC, proper sanitation, barely have 3 meals a day, lack of access to proper education and so much more. And look at us, enclosed in a TC bubble, all we think about is making more money than the others. The greed to have more and more! Growing your career ain't bad, but thinking only in terms of money sure as hell is. People just cussing one another on Blind, trying to pose superiority in terms of high end jobs and TC, not carrying a basic decency to help a guy in need, in need of professional guidance or any other thing. Be better guys.

TL;DR - We lack humility!

      Grow some patience to read a very meaningful and honest post. Nobody would care about your TC or where you worked, they will remember you for what you did for them.

    What good does humility bring in an anonymous forum? Make weak willed people feel less insecure? And why is greed for money so frowned upon? Greed is the pillar on which human evolution is built on. Greed for knowledge, greed for happiness, greed for comfort are all that made us who we are. If we were happy with what we had got, we would have been still living inside caves.

    Greed is wrong only when it affects other people. We are all humble engineers and the most important thing is you will always be paid less that the actual value you create. Which means you are contributing more to humanity in one way or another. Greed is what keeps this economy running. Imagine what would happen if everybody start staying at home happy with what they have. That's the end.

    You being humble here on Blind won't change a thing in the life of the 7 billion people you are talking about. If you really care about them, take actions. Do charity

      I think you misunderstood some stuff. Also let's not make judgemental calls. Anyhow, would love to debate with you. You seem to be a thoughtful guy with your own perspective. ✌🏼

      e.g., spells out for example, no need to say "for e.g". Also you are missing period and comma after g. Maybe you should read a few more books on grammar and humility before talking about others.

      Or just deal with it like rest of us trollers. Blind is imperfect rude anonymous online forum. No one spell checks and no one gives a shit. Quit being a baby

  • I think Blind has majority of its users who were nerds in college, were bullied, not good looking and have no hobbies. Nerds usually make more money and they decided to show off the only thing which they have i.e. TC.

    I don't perceive the TC discussions on here as being competitive. I thought the whole point is that having more information about the labor market helps everyone negotiate better, so it seems more like a collaborative thing to me.

      This! Knowing TC of others helps tilt the balance of information a little away from employers towards employees. Still, only a tiny bit.
