Your Comments, Please!

Some bloggers get annoyed with comments, some don't. I only get annoyed with trolls, but overall I really like people to comment on my blitherings, as it gives me the feedback I need to write, and also often challenges my assumptions. So if you got an opinion on what I write, or just a question, I'd like to see it.

And of course, if you like this blog, please send your friends here!

I am a market anarchist. You DO NOT represent my philosophy. I recently watched your 'profit is theft...' video and was almost physically sick. I never refused others the right to call themselves anarchists but for you i make an acception. You make a bigoted attack on humanity in this elitist video that is full of crap. You obviously have had a sheltered upbringing and never met any poor people or done any useful work not just out of greed e.g teaching. YOU DO NOT REPRESENT MARKET ANARCHISM or any other form of humanitarian, free philosophy. Your some sort of confused conservative with your ugly nose in the air. I suggest going out in to the real world and stop posting dumb videos on the net.

Anonymous. Lovely, attack and leave no room to talk back.

I have actually lived on the streets. Which I've also made videos about. Do your homework a little better. Then you won't have to hide.

'Leave no room'? Um.. what does that even mean? You did reply and were free to do so. So i'll leave my name this time if thats what you mean. Sorry some of us don't spend all day on the net i've never been on one of these bloggs before didn't realyy know what to do.

ohh the 'suffering' philosopher how amazing. i now must bow down to you. get over it. of course there would still be many on the streets in your weird version of market anarchism that i saw in that video. No, i won't look at all your videos and do my 'homework' if thats what you mean by it.

Why would i waste my time when i could be doing REAL activism rather than listening to some whining idiot make ridiculous videos of himself and his HUGE ego. Boring.

Well, at least you put your name to it this time, Sarah. I still don't understand your objection to the video. It was a rant at some socialist idiots that claim that it's "wrong" to profit from your endeavor.

Why they are wrong could fill volumes, but it comes down to the simple fact that in the absence of the ability to make a profit, you have no motivation whatsoever to engage in business. If you have no motivation, and no one else does either, it won't happen. Luckily, that premise is so foreign to human nature that it will never occur.
And I am an elitist. I believe very firmly that the leeches on society (rulers) should not be allowed to continue their depredations. Those who actually work for a living ARE the elite. Even if the system doesn't approve of us.
I am most certainly NOT a conservative. Conservatives wish to preserve the state, and it's gains. That's what the word means. I wish to deconstruct it.
I wish, in some ways, that I had indeed had a sheltered upbringing... then again, the people I meet who did have no capabilities beyond a very limited set of skills that would not serve them well in the event that they lost their jobs or became obsolete.

It sounded more like you were supporting people profitting from OTHER peoples endeavor which is different.

I'm a market anarchist but its not completely true that people SOLEY seek profit. Check out various jobs with awful pay or no pay that provide services for the community. They can still be motivated out of care not just pieces of paper and metal.

No anarchists are not really the elite. Their ideas are elite as in better than statists however that doesn't make them better people automatically. Their IDEAS are better they (we) are not better.

I didn't like the way in your vid you described capitalists as the only people 'moving society' which is just plain wrong.

Kevin K. Biomech said...

I'd have to watch it again to see exactly what I said. That video was definitely a rant. What I meant, if not what I said, is that the ambitious are the ones who move society. Not those who whine and complain about those who do better than they (probably because they aren't whining and complaining when there's a job to do!)
However, profit is far more than just monetary gain. In fact, that's more a benchmark than an actual measure. If you do something for your own reasons and it gains you in ANY way, that's profit. Profit and Gain are used almost interchangeably in economics, and what's a profit to the guy busting his ass in a low paying job that he enjoys might be totally different to the next guy.
Everyone TRIES to act in their own perceived best interest, if left to their own devices. Some do it better than others.
And yeah, I'd buy the idea that the ideas are elite, not necessarily the people. But those who are commonly thought of as "elite" in our bizzaro world now are, in my mind, the lowest of the low. They do not produce. They simply suck the life out of everyone and get away with it. Being a successful parasite is far different from being successful.

sarah said...

now your making more sense, well i see where yu're coming from. it's important you define more terms before those rants though because i thought you were suggesting the parasites moved society ! whereas i agree they are only succesful in this strange order of things. anyway glad you cleared that up for me, sorry for the misunderstanding.

Kevin K. Biomech said...

:P These things happen. That's why I put a disclaimer in the video. I was aiming it at a couple of specific people (they know who they are) and was just plain spewing out some anger at people who tend to make illogical and stupid arguments JUST to argue.

That and I had a bad day. Youtube is often my safety valve.

I think, that you are not right. I am assured. I suggest it to discuss. [url=http://cgi2.ebay.fr/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewUserPage&userid=acheter_levitra_ici_1euro&achat-levitra]acheter levitra en ligne[/url] I think, what is it — a false way. And from it it is necessary to turn off.
