Easy, the same way I came out of the dirt to type this, it stimulates the reward, or pleasure center of the brain. And you, despite your denials, and coming out of the same dirt, are motivated by the same thing. However, not everybody needs to be whipped by your angry,vengeful god to be forced to do "good". So, I will consider your need for a crutch (group hug) as a disability, with plates for the car and everything, so you can park where you want.

Let me put it another way, we all know moral blindness isn't pretty, but what's funny is when the people pointing it out are such avid practitioners. I guess you can call it irony, or maybe even cynicism, or is it mere incongruity? Who knows, those kind of things are beyond me. I did a JE on it, I think it hit the bullseye, and purposely left off the attribution for the guaranteed distraction it would cause. Heh, without having a messenger to kill, it seems to have left nothing to talk about.

Comment: All this crying about money is bullshit (Score 1) 47

You can always take the info at face value, or not. Who cares who says it? You simply do what is technically correct, and the problem sorts itself out. Now the problem with money is the people who take it have too much influence on policy. In a week and a half the Americans will have the great opportunity of cleaning their house of ALL the old rubbish, or just sweep it under the rug one more time. Then we will see what happens to net neutrality, amongst other things.. Unfortunately, I expect to see yet another vote for business as usual, and this "controversy" will just be another circle jerk since the voters have let big money decide how it's done.

It's not a "confiscation", it's a recovery of stolen goods acquired by fraud. And the power to regulate the value says it's all okay. They can just print new money and render the old worthless. This is one of those little things a government is authorized to do by default. And the fact that the law is there in black and white, on the supreme document of the land, makes it all the easier.

I did too read ~2/3 of the Communist Manifesto, and thought it pure propaganda.

Everything is propaganda, just like your bible. It doesn't have to be true or anything, you just have to believe... That is all the man asks. And I also noticed that the manifesto does little more than disparage *desires of the flesh* from a slightly different angle, the moral(?) is the same. So, like, what's the deal?

Communism is still capitalism, deals have to be made, contracts have to be signed, and the hangman still has to be paid. It is merely an alternate form of empire building, without the bread and circuses that make Vegas style capitalism so exciting.

Read the other third. It has a happy ending, like so many of the other childrens fairy tales that you yourself believe.

We have great abundance. Automation will only increase it. We are very prosperous and can easily afford to pay everybody displaced by a robot a welfare check since the produced product will be suitably less expensive. Human effort is the only thing that needs to be compensated. In an automated world everything can and should be free.

Yeah, it feeds the prison system and conditions the kids to accept and dole out this kind of treatment. Critical thinking is that last thing they want. Google can do all our critical thinking for us. It already conveniently filters our searches for us. Our "educational" system preaches conformity. It that regard it is doing exceptionally.
