Holy crap. I may be in love. But with the blogger or the sea, I'm unsure.

Bring me that horizon,yo ho!

Damn straight, and she is spot on. For too long, dashing captains and pirates have been repressed in a endless sea of paperwork, flickering fluorescent lights and office cubes. Many of the pirates have been shackled by debt, by obligations, by women of lesser value.

My time in the sun is coming. The debt will be gone in a few months, and then I can let fly and get to a new, crisp and clean horizon....and freedom!

Great link, Cappy. By the way, a lieutenant posted one of your videos in the "Everything Else" section on Roosh's forum.

Amusing. Christopher Isherwood said that he was gay, not because he didn't like women (he did) or couldn't have sex with them (he could and did) but because men were romantic and women weren't.

The day will come when I make all the scurvy dogs messing with me walk the plank off of my Styrofoam Sea Snark sailboat I've had since I was 16.

Honestly everyone would be happier with less work and less stuff.

By being a minimalist I don't see myself destroying a leftist socialist economy. I see it has destroying consumerist capitalistic corporatism.

I'm not buying their stuff. If we all stopped buying their stuff, the entire system could come crashing down in a month.

Funny, a lot of Americans talk gloom and doom about a "crash".

So practically what does that mean?

2 Burger kings on a suburban strip instead of 20? 1 Home Depot on the strip instead of 10? 3 Walmarts instead of 30?

I mean really? What do Americans consider a "crash" and why would such a gluttonous system crashing be a bad thing?

We could bleed the beast in a month or less if today we all decided we weren't going to buy into it.

I mean, you don't even need a backyard to grow your own food anymore, you can grow it in your house.

We don't need to buy shampoo, toothpaste or any grooming products, we can make them at home.

(Don't even get me started on women and the cosmetics industry)

People: we do not need this unhealthy, carcinogenic crap!

If were going to do this, lets do it right!

Let's not only "enjoy the decline" lets INITIATE it!

I am loving your POV. The goal isn't to be able to afford a nice house and car. The goal is for people to wake up and stop encouraging slave labor and gluttony and live in a sustainable country! If there was less wealth, then less immigrants would leave their homes to come here. People would be smarter, healthier, slimmer, happier. Nobody needs a 2 story dream home with a 3 car garage. It disgusts me to no end and we have the media to blame.

This is ridiculous. Less wealth would lead to people fleeing the country, similar to Mexico.

"People would be smarter, healthier, slimmer, happier."

Kathleen, have you ever left San Fransisco? I'm not sure what your idea of wealth is, but I can assure you that communities with less wealth are the opposite of what you described.

There is a difference between choosing to get by on less and telling others what is good for them.

Good thing you're here to determine what everybody needs. Typical liberal.

We have less wealth now than we did 5 years ago...are americans fleeing the country?

In some places the mexicans are actually returning home.

Your thesis fails the basic observation test.

There is a major delta between obnoxious suburban mcmansions on one hand, and detroit on the other. Law of the excluded middle and all that.

You are arguing from a false dichtonomy - that the only two alternatives are an overwork corporate slave state and mcmansions one one hand, and detroit on the other. In either case people are miserable.

People who work less (as opposed to not working at all) are healthier and happier than people who spend their whole lives ignoring what is important in the foolish pursuit of wealth.

Good thing you're here to determine what everybody needs. Typical liberal.

Since 99.9% of people in history did not have these things, obviously people don't need them - that is indisputable fact. Whether they want them or not, or whether they should, is another story.

She would only be a liberal if she was *forcing* people via the government to only need/want certain things. She did not indicate that in the post.

Actually, yes. It's promoted throughout the manosphere.

"In some places the mexicans are actually returning home."

Haha via ICE?

There is certainly a middle ground. My point was that there is a definite correlation between less wealth and lower intelligence, obesity, etc. I'll let you determine how much wealth everyone needs to be happy and healthy.

"People who work less (as opposed to not working at all) are healthier and happier than people who spend their whole lives ignoring what is important in the foolish pursuit of wealth."

I can't argue with that. Doesn't really seem like an argument against having wealth, though.


"Since 99.9% of people in history did not have these things, obviously people don't need them - that is indisputable fact. Whether they want them or not, or whether they should, is another story."

Play with semantics all you want. In a free society, it's up to each individual to decide what makes them happy. I don't like it when people start hinting at knowing what's good for everyone.

"She would only be a liberal if she was *forcing* people via the government to only need/want certain things. She did not indicate that in the post."


The way she was speaking of some ideal scenario where everyone has just enough wealth to get by sure made it seem like she was getting to it.
