When a Communist Complains About Capitalism Starving People

By Andrew Smith


I keep seeing communists posting memes about ‘Companies throwing food away ‘for profit’, while people ‘starve to death’, and that capitalism, as an economic system, is to blame.

There are so many flaws with this logic, but the two things to point out immediately, if you see one of these, is that companies LOSE money when they throw their inventory away, so how is it ‘for profit’ when they throw away their food?

Second, it is countries that have the economic system/policies that these people want, where starvation is a real issue. In the capitalist west, involuntary starvation has not been an issue since the great depression, and wouldn’t have been during the depression had the government not forced farmers to burn their crops, literally, because they believed the depression was caused by ‘overproduction’…

USSR, Red China, Pol Pot’s Cambodia, North Korea, Cuba, Venezuela, Romania, Yugoslavia, 80% of the countries on the continent of Africa, have the policies ‘production for need, not for profit’, that communists/socialists want, and these are the countries where starvation was/is most prevalent.


Episode 43 – First They Killed My Father (1:32:27)


 

 

Starvation doesn’t exist in Singapore, Hong Kong, Switzerland, it doesn’t even occur in the desert climate of Chile, where the only natural food that can be harvested is seafood, yet the socialist countries, where the policies that the anti-capitalist want have been fully implemented, are the countries with major food and basic necessity issues.

The government declaring that food, housing, health care, jobs, are human rights does absolutely nothing to produce food, housing, health care, employment opportunities, or anything else.

Instead of battling it out with commies, I’m going to start providing a single refutation on my own wall (and this site), to memes, pop culture icons, political quips, bumper sticker taglines, etc. While it’s fun to debate morons, it’s a lot easier to provide the refutation to my friends, and equip you with the intellectual ammunition you need to debunk these myths among your friends and family (and readers of this site).

We open the holiday travel season with the 20th anniversary of a John Hughes mid-80’s classic, “Planes, Trains and Automobiles” with our returning guest, the Professional Asshole.

We get into a very dated movie that could not be made today as most of the problems that arise have since been solved by technology.

Still, a kind of fun movie that may be worth a watch every few years.

Socrates: The Suicide That Led to The Social Contract

By Steven Clyde

*This piece is a subchapter for my upcoming book “My Government!”*


This ancient idea of the social contract dates back to Ancient Greece where it was first established as a philosophical idea, and from there it was set to take foot in any society that reminisced in the work of these ancient philosophers. It is no surprise that Athens between the 3rd to 6th centuries gave us many of the ideas that developed the framework of the Western world and where the modern state as we know it is derived. Pre-Socratic philosophers such as Thales of Miletus[1] (624 BC-546BC), Pythagoras[2](570BC-495BC), Parmenides[3](510-540BC[4] – Death Unknown), etc., paved the way for the prospects of reason and logic as fundamental ideas to adhere to over mystical figures as their guiding source of wisdom. We would consider these thinkers cosmologists in that they sought to find objective truths that tie the universe together.

Socrates

Socrates (469 BC-399 BC), a remarkable figure and thinker born and raised in Athens, Greece, never wrote anything down, yet he was very much interested in the individual and justice. Unlike the pre-Socratics who again held closely to views of cosmology, Socrates was also a fan of the sophists and the types of questions they were asking as he was very outspoken about public affairs and what was happening within the polis. Though never holding a professional teaching position, he was open to be a teacher and speak to whomever was open to a dialogue, and through his teachings he gave birth to a new era of thought in history.

A significant point he stressed was that the individual is to decide right and wrong for themselves, and that immoral and unjust acts can only come out of a state of ignorance. Though we know that to be untrue in that smart and evil people are commonplace, he nevertheless had faith in the individual and thought the mind mattered much more than stigmas; in fact he often refused to give his students answers as he wanted them to figure things out for themselves.

Episode 49 – Inequality For All (1:20:27)

Esoteric Entity joins us to discuss the Robert Reich’s “Inequality For All” – a leftist-propaganda puff-piece that caters to the uninformed and lowest common denominator for economic analysis.

Described on Amazon, where it has over a thousand GLOWING reviews as:

A passionate argument on behalf of the middle class, Inequality for All features Robert Reich–professor, best-selling author, and Clinton cabinet member–as he demonstrates how the widening income gap has a devastating impact on the American economy. The film is an intimate portrait of a man whose lifelong goal remains protecting those who are unable to protect themselves. Through his singular perspective, Reich explains how the massive consolidation of wealth by a precious few threatens the viability of the American workforce and the foundation of democracy itself. In this Inconvenient Truth for the economy, Reich uses humor and a wide array of facts to explain how the issue of economic inequality affects each and every one of us.

I’m sure you’ll find that we disagree with this assessment and the Amazon reviews.

A Theory on the Best Philosophical Standpoint for Overcoming Addiction

By Shaheen the Anarcap

Please note: This is an opinion piece written from experience which worked for me, and has been effective for several others I’ve suggested it to. If you’re an out of control addict in desperate need of cocaine, either contact your local agorist or visit a doctor.


If one has executed an activity which has resulted in a high dopamine release, they will crave doing that activity again, after the dopamine levels have dropped, no matter how shameful or harmful they know the activity to be to themselves.

When one relies on a certain activity to achieve their dopamine high, their sub-conscious brain. Having recognized the potential dopamine release it will receive from doing the activity, will make the person want to keep on doing it and have the activity remain as a part of their life.

For example, a cocaine enthusiast, despite knowing full well the dangers of using cocaine to his health (and wallet) will want to use cocaine, to keep it as a part of his life. This causes a great temptation to arise for the person of interest, and they are left with difficult choice, to resist the cravings or to just enjoy the dopamine.

If one picks the latter, this will cause them to, overtime, develop a higher tolerance for the enjoyable activity, thus requiring a more intense variant of the activity (a higher, more potent, amount of the drug) to receive the same amount of dopamine high as before. The cocaine user now needs to snort two lines instead of one, just to get the same amount of satisfaction. As it is established that the activity required for dopamine release is hazardous to the person of interest, he will be at a much higher risk of danger, which renders the “enjoy the dopamine” option unjust.

Donna Brazile wants Bill Clinton to be on the campaign trail in 2018

Oh this is good.

The Intercept reports that:

During an event at Politics & Prose bookstore in Washington, D.C., on Tuesday evening for her new book “Hacks: The Inside Story of the Break-ins and Breakdowns That Put Donald Trump in the White House, Brazile weighed in on Gillibrand’s statement about Clinton and whether Democratic candidates should campaign with the Clintons during the 2018 midterm election campaign.

“Absolutely, no doubt, and let me tell you something,” Brazile said. “I worked for Bill Clinton and Al Gore, OK, part of my formative years. Bill Clinton was impeached. In 1998, I went over to the DNC, I left my job with [Reps.] Eleanor Holmes Norton and Dick Gephardt to go over to the [Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee] and the [Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee] and the DNC, and we came within five seats [of taking the House in the 1998 midterm elections]. Bill Clinton paid a huge price and I know everybody wants to re-litigate it today and rather than talk about Roy Moore, a man who has been banned from the mall, and not want to talk about sexual harassment — sexual harassment is a pervasive problem in our society and the workplace.”

At the book event, Brazile said she was worried that the focus on individuals like Bill Clinton would distract from the broader problem. “It’s not just celebrities. It’s not just politicians. It’s not just comedians. Rather than address this issue, we’re trying to make this out of a political issue like, ‘Oh, should he do this and should he’ — this is a pervasive problem in the workplace, and we need to give encouragement to the people who are coming forward with their story,” she added.

“I believe the women and we should stop trying to distract from the issue at hand, which is sexual harassment. It is immoral, it’s wrong, and it doesn’t matter if it occurred 30 years ago or if it occurred last night. We need to speak out and give voice to what is happening in our society.”

Despite Hillary Clinton’s loss to Donald Trump in the 2016 election, Brazile said the Democratic Party needs the Clintons out on the campaign trail. She applauded the Clintons for helping “recruit” new faces for the party.

“I am grateful for their service. Bill Clinton was in Puerto Rico yesterday. I know a little bit about, you know, not having running water after a storm. I know a little bit about what it’s like to have your roof blown off your head after a storm. I am proud that Bill Clinton has continued his service. He’s not perfect. I’m not perfect. John 8 said he or she without sin – I put ‘she.’ I know the men who wrote the Bible didn’t understand that women had a role too, but — cast the first stone,” Brazile said.

“The Clintons have been extremely effective in helping the Democratic Party recruit the next generation of candidates and much more. We need Bernie Sanders out there. We need Hillary Clinton out there. We need Joe Biden out there. When your party has been in the wilderness; when you’ve lost 932 state legislative seats and 11 gubernatorial seats; when you’ve lost over 63 congressional seats, we can’t afford to be going out there and saying, ‘Donna, sit your butt home. Bill, sit your butt home.’ We need everybody to get their butts out there and win in 2018 and beyond – that’s where I stand,” she added.

This is rich on so many levels. I’ll just focus on three issues that spring out from her remarks.

First, Donna Brazile wants Bill Clinton to campaign for Democrats during the 2018 elections, even though he is accused of, among other things:

  • Raping Juanita Broadrick,
  • Sexually assaulting Kathleen Whiley,
  • Sexually harassing Paula Jones, and
  • Sexually assaulting Leslie Millwee.

This is in addition to the recent allegations made by four women that Clinton sexually assaulted them after he was President.

But you see, it’s ok for Clinton to campaign for Democrats, because Donna Brazile believes the women.

Second, Brazile thinks that because he isn’t perfect, and nobody is perfect, not only should nobody complain about what Clinton did to specific women, it is perfectly acceptable for Clinton to campaign. For support, she refers to John 8, in which Jesus challenges those without sin to cast the first stone against an adulteress.

In the most charitable way possible, Brazile’s argument is sanctimonious bullshit. While she wants people to pay less attention to Bill Clinton, she wants people to more attention to Ray Moore because he is alleged to have harassed teen aged girls! She can’t have it both ways!

Or she can try, but then that would make her just another Democrat.

Finally, the primary reason Brazile wants Clinton on the road is she believes he is an effective campaigner and candidate recruiter. But is he really as good as she makes him out to be? After the 2016 election, The Atlantic published an article suggesting that the Democratic party is in serious trouble. Not only did the Jackasses lose the White House and both houses of Congress, but Republicans won the most state governorships since 1922. The Democratic party’s leadership is aging, its bench is weak, and given the sexual harassment allegations hovering over several key leaders, it has a significant image problem.

Having said everything, if Brazile really wants Clinton to go on the campaign trail, who am I to complain? If his presence during the next election further deteriorates the Democratic brand, that would be a-ok by me.

After all, the sooner the Democratic party disappears from American politics, the better.

NFL ratings are collapsing

NFL

Vox Day highlighted the simple fact that not only is the decline in NFL ratings continuing, but it is accelerating.

Take a look at the year-over-year comparisons to key games during week 11 involving elite franchises in the playoff hunt:

  • Thursday Night Football: TEN-PIT -36%
  • Early Doubleheader: KC-NYG -39%
  • Late Doubleheader: NE-OAK -22%

This has huge implications for NFL advertisers:

 It’s already being estimated that NFL advertisers have lost over $500 million due to the ratings decline, and that is when they were in the 20 percent year-on-year range.

Vox ties the NFL’s decline to SJW infestation of the league. While I don’t necessarily disagree with it, in many ways the NFL’s current problems come down to one factor.

For far too long, the NFL took its success, and its fans, for granted.

Rather than finding a franchise for Los Angeles after the Rams and Raiders left in 1994, the NFL 1) used LA as a negotiating chip so that team owners could strong-arm cities into using taxpayer funds to build bloated stadiums, and 2) played regular season games in London and Mexico City, while dangling the possibility of setting up teams in those cities. In the name of safety, the NFL diluted the rule book by increasing penalties on supposedly questionable hits by defenders, putting them in near-impossible situations when trying to play a game that should be simple. Meanwhile, playing games on Thursdays actually increases the risk of injury for players. Further, Roger Goodell has put the league in a terrible negotiating position by how it handled concussions.

Add in the SJW infestation, best exemplified by players kneeling during the national anthem*, et voila, the NFL’s popularity is imploding.

I don’t know how the NFL is going to turn this around. But I have to confess feeling somewhat satisfied that this far-too-smug of a league is being brought down a notch or two.

*While it is certainly obnoxious that the Defense Department has subsidized displays of patriotism during the national anthem,
