@emsenn we invest our comrades who have less to do what we can with our bounty
@zee I appreciate the intent of this answer, but I am concerned. Often when I see this attitude, it doesn't explicitly address the inequality that allows one person to "invest" in another. I am more keen to dismantle privilege than spread it around.
Which isn't to say that "investment" back in the community must preserve privilege; I just think it is important that such investments be centered around removing the ability, let alone the need, for such patronage in the first place.
