 > The original meaning of bourgeoisie is one who lives in a town

But that's not how the word has been used in this discussion, so this is  
irrelevant trivia.

 > Also every time you put your money in a bank you are contributing to  

This is also not what we are discussing.  GNUser specified from the  
beginning: "By this I mean, how do you buy/sell stocks, or invest in Bitcoin,  
or do Forex Trading, while running only Free Software?", and nadebula.1984  
responded in those terms, with a comment not about people who passively  
"contribute to investments" but who actively "make investments".

 > Based on your comment

Your facetious conclusion was not based on nadebula.1984's comment.  It was  
based on an imaginary comment that they did not make, one which uses  
"bourgeoisie" in a different sense and replaces "make investments" with  
"contribute to investments".  I don't really want to debate whether  
nadebula.1984's comment was right or wrong, but using wordplay to create an  
strawman, and then from that strawman drawing an absurd conclusion, does not  
show that nadebula.1984's original comment was absurd.
