God forbid you do some difficult volunteer work instead of this "putting people down and mocking them" internet commenting.

Incidentally, why is it that so many people argue that wealth comes from doing things people value, but then support volunteer work? If it's the case that helping people makes money, all the people needing help should have entrepreneurs all over them, rather than hoping for unpaid volunteers. And why would people tend to become volunteers if continually told that virtue comes from measurably productive money making?

I do both, and I'm also not sure what your tangent has to do with me.

Then why can't the article person do volunteering and dopamine fasting?

My tangent has nothing to do with you; not everything is to do with you.
