America. Justifying the virtue of rich people by making up stories about their immense, personal sacrifice. The world is full of poor people who are also sleep-deprived, and suffer the health and mental consequences for it, but they rare use the fact as some fucking trophy.

Maybe if you weren’t so tired all the time, you’d have time to read a book. I strongly recommend Why We Sleep. The science on sleep is clear: Continuously being deprived will make you miserable and ultimately kill you. Watching the stock market at 6am won’t counter that.

The gospel that to deserve wealth, you must suffer excruciating hardship is a call to pacification. Don’t complain about lack of sleep/vacation/weekends/rest. Jesus wants you to watch the stock market from early morning till you drop dead at night!
