    Oh, I get it now. So you're one of those people who believes all money
in the world should be equally distributed, regardless of job or occupation
or local economy, etc. If you make less money than me than you're oppressed,

    So the definition of servant is how little vacation time someone gets? I
think you need to be a little clearer on your definition of "servant".
Please define specifically what that means to you. Someone who makes minimum
wage? Someone who is in a job you wouldn't want to do personally? Someone
who doesn't like their job?

    We're not questioning reality, we're questioning you. I do believe
there's a difference.
