stock market You really do get good, after much experience. But telling others what to buy or sell, is like giving health advice. Many will ask, but if you tell them, they ignore it. People need to make their own mistakes it seems. Or, for those who aren't competent, just turn their portfolio over to an "expert". That's analogous to delegating responsibility, which most people in the states have been trained to do. Once you take their responsibilities away by making them think it is better to have others manage over their affairs, like a doctor, or an investment advisor, or a school to educate their children, then their responsibilities are minimised, and so too is their freedom, because responsibility is a co-requisite of freedom. So, seeking health knowledge to become free of need of others, has much wider implications than most realise. Slaves don't have many responsibilities, other than to work for the boss. So, when people delegate away their responsibilities, out of either ignorance of laziness, they're opting in to a form of bondage.
