The more you get stuck in the past at past historical slights, the worse your progress.— Nassim Nicholas Taleb (@nntaleb) August 7, 2020
Move on; getting rich is the best revenge.
In 1982 Assad (père) & warlord Frangié blew up our house in Amioun. I got rich & we built a bigger one.

If my rent money is paying for my landlord's mortgage, shouldn't I be part owner?— Kandist (@kandistmallett) August 3, 2020

Being successful is definitely the best revenge. N. N. Taleb is smart enough to make serious money. His wealth could evaporate today and then very soon, he would be rich again.
Unfortunately, there are plenty of unproductive idiots who can't make money. Worse, they don't bother with learning history. If they did, then they would learn that their "amazing" ideas have been tried countless times and the results often involve mountains of corpses. When necessities are made "free", nobody provides them. Forget housing, such "free" societies can't even grow sufficient food! Tens of millions of poor souls have perished from painful starvation in just the last century because of this evil.
