"I'm not like other girls"
One can not agree with a system and still have to operate within said system.
@VinoVeritas, actually you can especially if the alternatives arent available or are worse. You can always complain that things arent how youd like. There are problems with capitalism especially if you try to go 100% capitalism. However, getting someone to care about your complaints is difficult and actually fixing the issue is nigh impossible because youd have to get most people to care. I certainly dont care and I'm happy enough.
@VinoVeritas, True, but I think the complaint isn’t that she isn’t working in a coal mine in Serbia by oil lamp, but rather that she’s using an expensive brand that’s basically the ICON of capitalism (Apple) when other cheaper less corporate options are available, and the same with her drink choice. If she had the sticker on a normal laptop, and was drinking a coffee from some random mom and pop shop I don’t think anyone would point to it as being potentially hypocritical.
@DesignatedElfWhipper, looking down at their iPhone as well.
@VinoVeritas, thats why ima go live homeless.
@VinoVeritas, no one is forced to operate in any system. While it may be considerably easier to just follow the program of whatever culture you're born into, it's never an actual requirement. Operating within a system implies at least a tacit agreement with the operations of said system. And that's the irony here, willing to bash capitalism all day but not willing to make any effort towards staying away from that system of operation. No reason she can't have a cheap think pad and coffee from home
@DesignatedElfWhipper, what if she bought it refurbished? Her bag might be a hand me down and maybe she robbed the Starbucks at gunpoint.
@VinoVeritas, you can however, save up and move the fvck out…
@Runnin with scissors, excuse me but you can build a better computer for less. You can also make a better coffee for much less! You are wrong about what capitalism means at its core. You are wrong at every point here.
@VinoVeritas, let me explain it this way: NOTHING you have that you enjoy was brought to you by the state. EVERYTHING you have that you enjoy was brought to you by capitalism. Same for the person in this meme.
@Child Slapper, what did I say capitalism means? I only said it has it's problems it's not perfect. Way to fly off the handle weirdo.
@Runnin with scissors, 100% capitalism would be beautiful. Which is why you don’t know at all what it means.
@Child Slapper, 100% capitalism means free market with 0 regulations which isnt a great system. Reason being monopolies without any need to meet consumer needs because they are the only option.
sounds more like you havent taken basic economics.
@Runnin with scissors, that’s gonna be a big yikes from me, dawg. First of all, I have taken many economics classes. More than you for sure. Second, claiming university classes as your reasoning is a terrible idea as their goal is to indoctrinate you. Why are many economics majors in major debt on average? Because they are being indoctrinated.
Second, no, Capitalism is highly misrepresented. The definition has been changed drastically. All the top Google results are opinions and very wrong.
Capitalism at its core is the concept of “you help more people, you make more money”. It’s so funny how all the political players have crapped on this term to make America sound bad. And people like you fall right into it.
@SnekLel, yeah ima try and live not using captilism yet i feel ima get arreested cause law enforcement dont car wven if i live non contaminated and educated on how things work. meaning yes i can live off grid and not damage societt or eveironment. yet someone will come along and force you.
Those boots look like they would run about $250. Plus, that backpack is easily $400-$600. Life is good! Go Communism!!
And the stickers probably cost $5-$10 a piece or more if they were for a cause
Idk if you guys have noticed but billionaires are going to space now... Maybe the rich have gotten too rich?
@I am Levi, nah order of trying new dangerous things is: government, rich people, people with large amounts of money, everyone else.
@I am Levi, I’m all for it, the guy is making headway into space travel, for both his childhood dream and to make more money but all for it. Much better than government subsidized development which only encourages a bigger price tag. The multiple groups all have different goals too which is cool, blue wants space industry, spacex wants colonies, virgin wants to commercialize space flight.
@I am Levi, then stop using Amazon and Tesla products. Otherwise they'll only get richer
@Andred, you think that space travel will ever be commercially available for the common man within our lifetime? It won't. The money would be better spent paying his Amazon employees better wages. That would lead to a more stimulated economy and a benefit you and I could actually see.
@ptitty1231, never said I was against or for Amazon. Just making the point that if one of the largest companies/employers in the U.S. were to pay their employees higher wages we would have a stronger economy. More money in the hands of the people means more flow from person to person. Sending billionaires to space helps no one unless we shoot the rocket out of the sky before it comes back.
@I am Levi, i wouldn’t advocate for the taking of peoples earned money based on your own feelings. Otherwise you end up the victim of your own idea
@Gallchobhair, tell you want, I'll cry about it when I'm a billionaire. You go ahead and keep acting like Jeff bezos earned all his billions without screwing over countless employees and killing every small business he could.
@I am Levi, my main problem with this is that I don't think we should be worried about exploring space until we figure our shjt out on earth first
@I am Levi, nah. But there’s definitely a conversation to be had about wealth and corruption. The laws are a train wreck and a serious revamp of everything governing corporations, boards, executives, and their relationships with elected officials needs to be done.
@I am Levi, they said that about air travel.
@110100100, damn straight
@I am Levi, then stop buying from them
@x2 6x 9 lol, so you understand that boycotting the company won't hurt the owner right? You ever hear of "too big to failed"? I'd imagine the richest man in the world would be just that. The whole point of talking about it and discussing it is to help people like you understand what is wrong with the current set up. Just me not spending money isn't going to do anything. And fyi, I use Amazon as little as I can and spend my money at more local businesses, but when you do most your own vehicle work and detailing sometimes you have to use them.
@Hot Coffee, the difference being we will not be able to see any benefits of space travel within our lifetime, our children's life time, or our grandchildren's lifetime. If we entertain the idea that we will one day terraform mars and that'll be the reason for our space travel, it will take thousands of years to accomplish that goal. The money is better spent here on earth than out in space stroking billionaire's egos.
@I am Levi, I partly disagree, many of our technological advances come from exploring. Furthermore, if it really will take that long to realize any benefits from space exploration, that’s an even stronger argument to starting now.
@I am Levi, on the balance I am glad Musk is doing his thing. Bezos and the virgin guy aren’t really contributing to much to actual space exploration, what they did really felt like ego stroking and feels like a waste of money.
@Hot Coffee, don't get me wrong, the idea of grasping the stars is one I'm super in love with. I'll easily lose an hour or two just watching videos on what it would take to terraform the planets in our solar system. My argument is that we should prioritize making life on the planet we have as good as it can be and spend our money in ways that raise the standard of living. My fear is that if we continue focusing on space exploration before the betterment of the people on earth, the rich will just leave after earth is no longer livable. Why focus on sustainable energy or keeping the general population's standard of living high when you could just say bye bïtches and shoot off to your space yacht when shït starts hitting the fan. It just looks like another way for the rich to buy their way out of accountability and it shows how much money they could be cycling back into the economy.
@I am Levi, I will say at least with Elon musk's endeavors they seem a little more genuine and in economicly sound. I've not heard or looked into what Tesla pays their employees but I've heard that they do pay well. I'm not against space exploration, most just that baldy Jeef Beeznuts
@I am Levi, if the rich can go to space, then 40 years down the line it'll be commercial. 40 years after that it'll be called a commute.
@I am Levi, I don’t see these as mutually exclusive endeavors. I think when billionaires behave like Bezos, it’s appropriate to harshly criticize them, ridicule them, and laugh at them. But I also think when they do incredible things, like bring electric cars into the mainstream (musk) or supporting effective life saving charities focused on helping children (like Gates, who I personally detest, but I respect most of his charity work), it should be recognized for what it is.
@I am Levi, I care not if the rich are rich. Only if i get what I need/want.
@CocoasBro, okay bud, enjoy your lonely life. Let me ask are you religious in any regard?
@That one lurker, a commute to where? the nearest possible habitable planets are well over a couple light-years away and don't say to other places on earth, that inst practical for commercial use. regular people will not be ready for the amount of G's you have to undergo to launch into orbit.
@I am Levi, you're silly. We're making space motels as we speak. What's stopping us from putting that tech on the moon, then on mars?
Then all we need after that is a way to break through the asteroid belt reliably, then the rest of our universe is our oyster.
Put simply. Elon Musk shot a car into space.
Jeff Bezos went to space.
If the tech is getting that cheap then soon, the sky will no longer be the limit.
And if you're confused about what I mean. Look around your house at your stuff. Among the poor in the US an average household has 2 tvs, they've 1 microwave, an oven and a fridge.
By material goods alone, they're richer than Rockefeller in his heyday. Not including the level of care we have. And that is 120 years ago.
Go back 40, computers took up a room, but had the same computing power of the first iPhone.
40 years before that fridges weren't even invented, as we understand them today. There used to be a dude going house-to-house carrying blocks of ice.
@That one lurker, hey boss I don't think you understand my argument here. We need to worry about what we have on this planet before we start venturing into the stars. There is no purpose for us to be in space at the moment. The world is on fire, the poor have grown poorer, and we are completely unable to hold the rich accountable for their destruction of the middle class, environment, and their complete disregard for paying taxes. Space hotels are a cool notion but we need less places for the rich to go hide. You and I will not be able to afford these sorts of places in our lifetime. There is no point for us to go space except MAYBE for harvesting elements from astroids. Mars is too toxic and dead for us to start terraforming it. We would have better luck starting with Venus but that would still take thousands of years and generations of workers. My basic argument is that we shouldn't be going out to party in the stars while there's a fire going back home.
I want space travel too but we have more pressing issues to address at home. Especially when the people who are pushing for space exploration need to be held accountable for not paying their fair share. if you or I didn't pay our taxes we'd have our a$$es thrown in jail so quick, so why are they better than us? why can't they be held accountable for skipping out on paying their share?
also I think you don't understand the difference between previous innovations and generations as apposed to the current situation.
When baby boomers were the age of current millennials they held 21% of the national wealth. Currently, millennials hold 3% of the total National wealth. This isn't baby boomers being harder workers or anything of the sort. There is a measurable wealth gap that has occurred and it needs to be addressed, starting with those at the top. Wages are stagnant and just saying "as long as I get what I need" is not only ignorant but self detrimental. True innovations come from economic growth and competition, but if the middle class stops existing because we let the billionaires suck up and hoard all the wealth, there won't be any innovations for us to benefit from. My argument isn't against space travel it's against the a$$holes stealing from the common man and those who are dumb enough to stand by there side because rocket ships are cool.
I've worked in warehouses before and I can tell you they do not pay enough for how demanding and stressful the job is. It honestly sucks donkey dick.
As for my ideas and thoughts about the state of the economy, my qualification for that would be my bachelor's in economics and the four years I had to study the concepts and math behind it. I don't mean to spit on your opinion but it's not based in any reality, it's based on the notion that the wealth distribution of today is the same as it was in the past.
@I am Levi, I don’t care about hurting the owner. You do. All of this is your problem. I don’t care at all he’s a billionaire. I buy shït from Amazon daily. It’s his money he can do whatever he wants with it. I’m sure you buy stuff that is useless that could be better spent.
@x2 6x 9 lol, so I won't shame you for not understanding economics and the wealth gap we've found ourselves in, but don't act like being ignorant to it makes it only my problem. Go look up how wealth was distributed for baby boomers when they were the age of current millennials vs millennials now. Come back then and tell me this isn't a problem. The money is trickling out of the common man's hands, the middle class is disappearing and people like you are letting it happen for no reason. It's not about buying things from Amazon and the distinct lack of all mom and pop shops, it's about how Jeff bezos should be paying his employees better wages and be made to pay more taxes. It's not a personal vendetta I have against the guy, it's a fear that we are allowing on man to gain more power and wealth than our elected officials by hoarding an absolute absorbent amount of money.
And not only does hoarding wealth NOT help the economy it actively hurts it. The more money that moves around, the healthier the economy. When such a large amount of wealth isn't moving and is mostly just invested in properties and assets to avoid taxes, it does nothing but weigh against the current funds that are cycling through the economy by basically causing inflation and devaluing the current dollar. One person is not entitled to have such a monumental effect on our economy and country without being voted into power, regardless of your opinion. This is America and I for one do not want to let these billionaires stay the modern day nobles they have become. You don't like the only billionaire known for his extensive charitable ways (Bill Gates)? Well holding billionaires accountable gets him too bc he's a billionaire too.
@I am Levi, you don’t need to shame me and I don’t need to understand it. I know how to make money and I have a lot of it. So when I say it’s your problem, it’s your problem. I’m living great. See you in space bro…well, maybe not. ✌️
@x2 6x 9 lol, lmaooooo I'd be embarrassed to be speak on a subject I clearly don't know about, maybe you should too. Making money and understanding economics are two separate things. They are related, but not enough that they are the same. Let's just end it on this note: I have and economics degree and I assume you don't. See you on the news when your cheap rocket explodes before take off. ✌️
@I am Levi, nope, Athiest
She could have gotten them both as gifts from sucking penises. Dont judge a book by the amount of blowjobs it gives.🤨
And Gucci shoes and an iphone no less
You guys know apple products aren’t substantially more expensive anymore right? Electronics cost are pretty well standardized
This is the ignorant youth that votes biden/harris
Shoulda spent some of that money on a better hair cut, cause They messed you up bad.
Plot twist: they’re stolen
Billionaires who haven’t *earned* money for the last decade are making their way into space purely for shïts and giggles, but yeah, let’s complain about someone utilizing the basic comforts of this $hit existence
I find her boots horny
That’s why I hate those kinds of people, I have more respect for a hippy that doesn’t have anything but a mean scent and a guitar. At least they are doing a better job of rejecting capitalism than those damned hipsters. I hate goths too cause they supposedly “don’t care” yet they take extra steps to stand out and look different. No, slobs don’t care. That’s why they wear the same shirt they’ve been wearing for a week and smell like a nightmare. This has been my online rant, thank you.
I just want people to be able to go to the hospital without it putting them forever in serious debt. Is that too much to ask?
Just walk over and take the laptop and say to her it's socialism what you have I get to.
Can we not
