The Origins of the SWPL People

"They used to say establishment, but as the ascendant taste maker group, they are the establishment so they say 'privilege'. By not being an organic setting, they are in effect buying into a subculture that is already packaged and marketed to them. They may think they are creative and unique, but they are just following the built in norms for their distinct group."

I would also remind people about how I said SWPL's have economic applications, specifically, they and their behaviors are VERY useful in predicting bubbles, like sayyyyyy....the 401k????

Oh, and you might be asking,

"Hey Captain!  Using SWPL's to predict economic bubbles is pretty witty and clever.  What other witty and clever observations have you had and where can I read about such great and insightful epiphanies!?"

Well happy reader, you just have to buy your copy of "Top Shelf!"

Available in BOTH paperback and kindle.

Puritans. They "complain" about their sin just to show off their knowledge of their sin, like global warming and rainforest slash and burn and whale depopulation and every kind of drug abuse ever.

Ordinary decent people who have real lives and real worries are loathed by these self-righteous poseurs.

You don't see so many SWPL types in Baptist territory. It's a post-religious phenomenon with its roots in the old faith.

Speaking of economic bubbles, people on both the left and the right have been saying that Bitcoin is a fluke and that it's another bubble ready to burst! You know something's up when people from completely different ends of the political spectrum are saying the same thing and agreeing with each other!

Bought your book. I like it a lot. I work as a doctor though so I'm not sure if I can do the minimalist thing. Gonna buy a good set of tools and make some side tables as a start. I'm also not wasting any more money. Keep up the good work.
