That's the best part of philosophy.

One of the best things I have ever read. The sudden realization after going through old posts, to agree to disagree being the best part of philosophy and understanding why. Thanks gib.

You are right gib, this is much better than war or violence. Philosophy is and always will be the solution for issues in my eyes.

Right, and it re confirms the idea that the philosophy of psychology is far.more meaningful then the psychology of philosophy. As ground is considered.

Meaning: the most general principles of the psyche are where most relevance is. The rest are mere blame game tactics.

For those who consider philosophy only a defensive rationalisation.

Nice eyes, good teeth, nice face, but don't ever let me see you with a long beard again.

:lol:

It kinda spoils your whole look, but I guess regular shaving can get tiresome for you guys. :D

I haven't got the time to spend the time reading something that is telling me nothing, as I will never be able to get that time back, and I may need it for something at some point in time. Wait! What?

Yes, yes it does! Haha. I do need a trim. It does get annoying having a beard. It may be an advantage too though haha, to avoid ad hominem or specifically the fallacy of regarding wisdom as relying on age

So sweet.

2. The "Hey There" look.

3. The "I dare you" look.

4. The spooky "You have no idea what I am thinking about" look.

I have to trim it soon and I can post some new pics. It does become a hassle but it's a good test for patience lol.

Measly pay aside, that is life.
A job which is always required and the proper tools and skills for it is in a sense the ultimate thing to possess. It makes one a direct part of the universe.

I d wonder would you really rather be a carpenter in a Co op than own your own business?
Freedom to oneself is the advantage of ownership. Not having to have to be on careful terms with other members.of the same entity. Dependency...
We already have the Earf to worry about in that sense.

lol what i said was probably confusing, yeah. no, i work all day, but this particular company does repair and renovation work. in most cases the job is itemized; repair this door for x amount, repair this siding for x amount, add handicap ramp to deck for x amount, replace roof flashing for x amount, etc., etc.

so i can look at each particular item and get an accurate idea about how ridiculous the situation is. the company owner always way overestimates the time it will take to do a specific repair. he can do this because of how naive the home owner is. so the home owner is thinking $100 is a reasonable price for repairing x... and doesn't know the actual costs (labor time and materials) would be about $25.

if the company owner were eliminated, the home owner would pay far less, and the worker would profit much more. that over inflated price is an estimation that includes the profit the owner wants to make... but what is the company owner doing in this equation - other than taking advantage of the home owners gullibility in quoting the price for the jobs? well, he isn't doing anything... or i should say he isn't doing anything a worker couldn't do... and for far less money.

the company owner gets between the producer and the consumer here, and fucks them both. ever wonder why the credit system was invented? because when you combine the artificial inflation of sales prices in the market - this to create that extra profit for the capitalist - consumers run out of money faster than they make it (over priced commodities are bought with artificially under priced wages/salaries) - and yet the capitalist needs to keep selling to make his profits. solution; borrow the money to buy my shit.

now, the under paid consumer is buying over priced commodities and must pay interest on his credited money. this is equivalent to getting fucked three times.

why, though? why is this still happening in the world today? well because the world isn't ready to stop it yet, apparently. the capitalist parasite is like one of those kinds that takes over the brain of the host and controls its thinking. a remarkably advanced parasite, to say the least.

But dog, but then why doesn't he just do it?

It's like fucked if I do and fucked if I don't with you socialists. There are countries, like Venezuela, where workers can and DO go about directly dealing with consumers.

But so what does the gringo pay in those extra (regulation driven) $75?

He gets quality assurances, competency assurances, material assurances, best possible job assurances, no liability for safety of the worker. Whole buncha shit. The owner may just be sitting there, but he's sitting on a BUNCH of shit. That YOU, the leftist, demanded.

So what's it gonna be?

Best answer I've seen for this is Kropotkin's medieval syndicates. And if you think THOSE motherfuckers didn't gouge the end consumer...

I don't like smiling in pictures.. can you tell? :lol:

In fact.. I rarely smile, but often laugh, so more a laugher than a smiler, and either deadly serious or goofy as hell.. there's no middle ground with me, and never really has been, haha!

I don't like smiling in pictures either, I laugh a lot more than I smile too. I just feel like if I force myself to smile that it's a fake state of being, of which now is captured in image lol.

Well the stare of wickedness is just as cute/sexy as the smile of 'innocence'. Hah
