The Big Lecture On Conspiracy Theory/Don’t Let The Left Stop You Practicing It.

From elsewhere. In a blog slightly inappropriate for the subject:

Communism was a conspirational philosophy as is Islam or some wings there-of. Because of communisms endless intrigues, now fully documented history, the leftists made it the worst of all social faux pas(z) to ever mention a conspiracy not sanctioned by the left. So for example over the last few years the left were fine with Karl Rove or Vice-Presidential conspiracies.

What complicates this matter is that mental illness can indeed lead to an excessively conspirational outlook. So suspicions of this sort can carry a taint. Well its time to leave all this childish nonsense behind. Just because some fellow isn’t on your exact point on the conspirational spectrum this is no need to be disrespectful. Thats dancing to the leftists tune.

Many are overly conspirational because they fail to see that puny humans act strangely when massed together in the millions. What looks like a conspiracy can turn out to be mere networked biases. Or the advent of society accentuating certain tendencies.

Just for example; should anyone doubt that the congenitally stupid are now upwardly-mobile, they ought to repeat the following two phrases, three times each, out loud, with their eyes closed, click their heels three times, and open their eyes. Then perhaps they will be back in Kansas. Back in the real world.

The two phrases being:

“bottled water.” and “carbon sequestration.”

The upward-mobility of very stupid people can look like a conspiracy.

The environmentalists:

Evil conspirators?

Or stupid pack-animals?

I think this sort of debate is healthy. I’d encourage normal humans to engage in such debates any extra-time they can find. But when the debating fades away it doesn’t really matter. Since whether it be conspiracy or stupidity or some appalling hell-marriage of both, in the final analysis IT DOESN’T MATTER.

Since we have to defeat them. go over, under and through them. Or get around them. To get done what needs to get done.

Now I really wanted to help people out by doing some heavy lifting with various net present value scenarios. But sadly I haven’t got around to it. With apologies to the blog owner and moderator I’ll try and do better from here on in.

    “Yes Bird, of course economies of scale doesn’t come into it at all why firms a re bigger, does it?”

    Yes it does. What is your point? Economies of scale are important for some businesses. Less important for others. High company tax rates particularly lead to massive conglomerates during the time Hans was talking. And if you knew your industrial history you would know this.

    Look Cambria. Your other question is ALREADY answered in my initial post. You would save everyone a great deal of time if you read everything about 5 times over until you got some glimmer of understanding as to what had been written.

  2. Thoughts on executive pay. Sinclair might have had a change of heart. He let this one through. Its a long road back though after being so foolish towards Gerry Jackson. Its not only me but Prodos was confounded by Sinclair taking the wrong side on that one. Me too. I had held him in pretty high esteem before that and largely because of his really solid radio appearances.

    It takes effort to merely MAINTAIN ones act. Let alone improve upon it. Professional snobbery is a particular barrier to learning. One hopes that Sinclair is on the road to recovery.

    “Even when Hans was talking, average top executive pay, at least before tax, was probably a great deal higher than it would have been under capitalism (properly considered). I say this for many reasons only 1 of which I’ll mention here. The average SIZE of corporations was much larger than it ought to have been due to the company tax, currency debasement, governmental barriers to entry, governmental pre-emption of undertakings naturally suited to low-cost-start-ups, direct and indirect subsidies to bigshots, and a myriad of other reasons.

    The above by no means implies that all multimillionaires were compensated enough!!!!!! Even today. Steve Jobs should probably be richer. T. Boone Pickens may well have made his first 100 million by the age of 40 under capitalism (properly considered) instead of making his first billion in his 70’s.

    Certainly a lot of people who went from lower-middle-class to upper-middle-class have been badly gypped. And might have been expected, under capitalism (properly considered) to have become minor magnates.

    Furthermore a lot of oddballs, fallen into a life of failure and frustration might now be bigshots, since true liberty would give a person a chance to minimise the consequences of his weaknesses and accentuate his strengths….. But more importantly capitalism (properly considered) gives people the chance to accumulate capital. And compete with other individuals, and entities, who already have it.”

  3. WE USED TO BE PROUD OF OUR ECCENTRICS. NOW ITS HARD FOR AN ECCENTRIC TO HOLD EVEN THE MOST LOW LEVEL JOB UNLESS HE’S A HOMO OR SOMETHING. THEN THEY WILL GIVE HIM A PUBLIC SECTOR JOB ON THE TRAMS OR SOMETHING. SO YEAH THE STUPID HAVE BECOME UPWARDLY MOBILE. NO DOUBT ABOUT THAT.
