An idle person's moralistic value

In a typical human society, a man/woman who makes wealth by selling his/her brains is considered to have the highest value and alternately someone selling his/her body for riches is considered to be of low morals. In this paradigm of a society, where will one consider someone who doesn't sell either... sells neither body or mind What value will someone like this have in a society

Note, not selling does not mean not using. A person can have a high usage of both mind and body... but for no monetary gain. But whether a person uses his/her body/brain or not, what value does society have for that person... and what value does society assign that person? That is the questions...

And when replying to this post, please keep in mind Origsom pai's multiple levels and dimensions in the ethereal world... where society is just another level for a group of people.

not necessarily, physical labour - the garderners, the building trade, the road diggers are not considered low morals. the type of selling of body you are referring to comes alongside definition of dignity in the society - in that sense someone cheating/commiting a fraud by using/selling their brains to gain money is also considered low morals (or used to be considered low morals. nowadays, sab chalta hai )

so.... according to typical understanding of society, value of a person in society does not (or "should" not) depend on what she/he are selling, but how are they selling it.

Re: An idle person's moralistic value

Can you explain in simpler language?

Are you talking about a man who invests and risks a lot in a business venture? Are you talking about what his value in society is?

Are you talking about a man who does a job, maybe at above business, and has a stable risk free life? Are you talking about what his value in society is?

Thoda simple me explain karo na bhai...

how will that person survive? baap dada ki kamai? no... everybody sells something, even the bhikhari on the road sells emotions - may not be the best thing to sell.

Like the janitor (ex-Russian physicist who has to live as a Janitor in the US) on Sheldon's team in the big bang thoery, they may have high value brains but only sell physical labour...

If there is baap dada ki kamai, still the person is selling - the wealth left to him/her - employing naukars, paying grocers and whiskey sellers and what have you...
