Thank you, Oddity. I will check him out. I think economics is fascinating. I just started reading about Ayn Rand and just fell in love, so I haven't really had time to branch out.


Completely false.


Economic wealth has nothing to do with one's spiritual wealth.

There are rich people who are also rich spiritually.

And just because you're poor doesn't mean you're rich spiritually either.

There are plenty of poor people who are evil.

I earn about $8.50 an hour, so for me it wouldn't even be worth the time to pick up 8,000 pennies.

An AI is only as good as its programmer. The technology we create is only created because someone thought of it and produced it in the tangible world.

A calculator can work more efficiently, but the creator had to program the calculator with all kinds of formulas first.

I remember learning in calculus that you can find a square root with Newton's method and that people who programmed calculators had to use his method in order to program the calculator to do the square root.

Of course the economic system works for us. Better than socialism or communism that's for sure. Communism encourages slavery – forcing people to work for people.

Re: Virtue of being self-absorbed?

How is that meme even a valid argument?

Becomes I'm a teenager and like Ayn Rand automatically makes me wrong?

I never said I was an expert, I just finally found someone who makes sense politically and economically and now I'm passing on the ideas.

Programmers are replaceable, and make FAR less money than CEOs. It's not a Meritocracy.
