Motivism

Irene Mathyssen, MP for London Free Press, remarks:

"I find it offensive that money is motivating him. Money is not motivating me. I am concerned about the health of our community."
Given that Mathyssen's proprietary conception of "the health of our community" requires banning a part of his business, taking offence at his money is certainly a useful attitude to take. But not to leave anyone out, however, Mathyssen is also offended by everyone else's money as well.

It's a curious thing that in response to someone who uses money to make a point, the person who isn't motivated by money immediately thinks that money is the point.

Not in it for the money? Oh really Irene. Then perhaps you should no longer draw your gold-plated MP salary since you seem so willing to work "for the people."

I'll vote Liberal in the next election if I know it will get rid of this self-serving, narcissistic socialist.
