So what is the "Magic Cargo Theory of Value"?
"If fighting is sure to result in victory, then you must fight! Sun Tzu said that, and I'd say he knows a little bit more about fighting than you do, pal, because he invented it, and then he perfected it so that no living man could best him in the ring of honor. Then, he used his fight money to buy two of every animal on earth, and then he herded them onto a boat, and then he beat the crap out of every single one. And from that day forward any time a bunch of animals are together in one place it's called a zoo! (Beat) Unless it's a farm!"

Roughly that the government creates wealth by taxing the rich, without examining how the rich got it. In effect magic cargo, after the manner of a cargo cult.

Both Adam smith and Marx agree labor creates wealth, while disagreeing about the role of capital.

Ahhh the whole Taxation = Socialism, More Taxation = More Socialism thing.

Copy and paste to your own feed! 1 tax = 1 social!!!

In a "true Communist" country, there would be no personal taxes at all.

You would be paid exactly what you need with nothing left over, and the wealth you create (according to your ability) belongs to all.

If you want to get cute, you could call that 100% taxation + you get an allowance, but that is not how the books would be kept.

Bear in mind, the "Happy Birthday, Karl Marx" guy is a philosophy professor.

So there is a possibility that he knows all this (unlike his students) and simply is lying to increase the power of his favorite faction of the ruling class.

But his hatred for people who work for a living is sincere.

Both ability and need are determined by qualified commissars.

Like this guy. What an honest face he has. :)

@BretWeinstein

Can we close all schools that fail to teach that cultural borrowing is key to every amazing capacity humans have? Not out of spite, but because the students will learn more on their own.

I know--> Math. But for most of us, math without appropriation = counting on your fingers!
@BretWeinstein

Given what creolization and memetic exchange have done for humanity "cultural appropriation" way well be the dumbest accusation ever leveled in the entire history of accusations. And that's saying something.
@BretWeinstein

I suspect that most of the people giving @daumkeziah a hard time over her dress are descended from folks who appropriated farming from one of the few cultures that independently invented it. I also suspect a few days of hunting and gathering would wise them right up.

Re: "Appropriation"

I had an American friend who spent many years in Korea.* He said Korean women dating or marrying foreigners was viewed as very bad. On the other hand, if a Korean man managed to get a foreign wife or girlfriend, that was considered a "win" for Korea. So, as a general rule of thumb, if it involves banging another tribes' woman, it's acceptable appropriation.

* I know these warriors are single-handedly trying to save China from "oppression," but hear me out.

As I read the long twitter thread about that, it was just two posts that caused the 'twitter-storm'. Yet it makes national news!

P.S. The girl is fucking hot.

P.P.S. She now has 28K followers. Just fucking wow. That's enough to sell the Ronco Pocket Fisherman!

Germany has had gender-neutral pronouns for infants for a very long time.
