Not only is Capitalism the economic form that sustains the world, but there’s two big reasons, truly powerful reasons, that I will always choose it over any other form of economy when at scale larger than a small, tight-knit, homogeneous community.
Bodacious Boobs Of The Free World
Because it’s true; you just don’t get very many bodacious boobs in non-Capitalist countries, most of whom have huge and persistent food production and distribution issues which result in starvation and stunted growth – and flatter, smaller boobs.
It’s a hard truth that most won’t conscious accept and all the Socialist sorts will violently deny that it is the work that is worth the wage, not the worker. No worker has any intrinsic value, on their work does. And, Ladies, Gentlemen, and Leftists, this is true for exactly 100% of us, irrespective of what sort of labor we perform or for whom.
And yes, that sucks! Then, more often than not, the objective truth sucks for somebody because they’re on the down side of it.
It’s truly simple. It’s the work you do – the product you produce or the service you provide – that has value to the consumer and, hence to the business, be it your employer or your own business. You, yourself are worthless in this equation; you have no value. You are replaceable, either by another worker or, as is more and more common, by an automated process.
But remember, as I said, this applies to all of us. This is totally equal and egalitarian, spanning both genders, all races, and all social classes.
If what you do and the amount of it you do isn’t worth both your wage and your amortized share of materials costs and overhead, you won’t be likely to have a wage anymore. And, by “wage” I do mean your total compensation package, every single dime that an employer has to spend upon you. Your employer – or you, if you own your own business – has to be able to sell the fruits of your labor for enough more than the fully-weighted cost of producing or providing it to make it worth doing so in the first place. Or the business will fail and you will have no wage.
Honestly, this is Economics 101R, but it seems to need to be taught again, and again, and again, because way too many people have serious and deep-seated illusions of worth.
But, and this is both a big and important but, a worker’s work may have more value than the employer either knows or is willing to admit in the absence of force. The effects upon both prices and profits at McDonald’s indicates that some employers can bear to pay more for the work their employees provide.
So, the correct way of thinking is what ones work is actually worth, not pretending that one as a worker has intrinsic worth in a business context.
While in general this is nothing new among the Left, it’s always face-palmingly bizarre, but freaking hilarious, to see, hear, or read of the Woke sorts turning on each other and devouring their own.
In this case, it’s that very Woke, very social justice conscious mixed-race, immigrant, queer couple, Sonam Parikh and Kate Egghart, had to close their cafe, Mina’s Café, in Philadelphia because of the actions of their even more woke and much more hate-filled employees despite the fact that Mina’s Café’s whole point was to be an exclusive them “safe space” for queers and trans of color and was staffed entirely by others like them.
Cannibalism Or Autophagia
I’m not, and I’m pretty sure nobody else is, sure about exactly what these woke freaks’ revolt was over, except possibly just wanting to seize the business for themselves in an orgy of quasi-violently applied Socialism, but it really doesn’t matter in the long run. They ate their own.
And Egghart’s and Parikh’s capitulation video was creepy as Hell too. It looked like a hostage video and, in all senses of the phrase except physical restraint, it likely was exactly that.
Well, the uber woke “workers” got half their wishes. Mina’s World closed last week. Of course, that means they’re out of work and, given what they are and how they’ve so publicly acted, that unemployment will most likely and rightly be very long-term if not permanent.
And that is why the Liberals and Progressives, along with their minority sharecroppers, have spend decades infiltrating and suborning the educational systems of the Civilized World. They internalized Lenin’s words about education and plan to make the most of them that they can.
NOTE:To be heartlessly fair, we Americans largely chose the $$$ of doing over the far lesser compensation from teaching. Hence, we tacitly ceded the teaching industry to them.
Obviously, they’re not going to willingly include anything in their curricula that doesn’t advance their vision of the quasi/pseudo-nation that they want to replace America with. And, they’re going to keep trying in include extraneous and destructive false teachings in their curricula whenever they can manage to do so, e.g., Critical Race Theory (CRT) and Social Emotional Learning (SEL).
Hellfire! My Fellow Americans – Frankly, My Fellow Whites – if this shocks you or offends you a great deal, you are one of their useful idiots! The Left’s behavior in this is utterly and completely normal. We, the People did the same thing back in better, bygone days – admittedly, though without shame for something I had and could have no part in – with some pernicious and unfortunate ideas included in it.
And hey! Beyond hot, semi-anonymous babes, this may be one of the unsung benefits of the COVID-19 pandemic and panicdemic. Our children – well, yours; mine range in ages between 37 and 19 – have been effectively home-schooled for a couple of years now. We’ve finally gotten to witness what the official curricula are and what the teacher have included in it or spun it to be and have the chance to try to do something about it.
