"bait" is an interesting spelling of "redundant"

I second turning Utah into U-238tah. As long as we can include Wyoming in the blast radius. I'm not sure anyone would be able to tell the difference affterwards.

I think we could all stand to take a deep breath and maybe hold off on the jocular advocacy for religious genocide. That's more of an alt-right shtick anyway.

You're right, there are plenty of people in Utah and Wyoming who are innocent workers.

Landlords, on the other hand...

I'd like to point out I was proposing Darwinian omnicide. I'm like Thanos, unbiased, probably right, and swole.

This thread needs to segue immediately into which American political party Thanos belongs to based on his movie dialogue.

First example: Thanos believes in forceful redistribution of wealth and resources based on random lottery.

Hard Green Party based on... Everything he says and does.

He's fundamentally a hardcore ecoterrorist fighting overpopulation.

I would say thatís more authoritarian than fascist.

Itís obvious heís an accelerationist, wanting capitalism to just run its course and either free us from wage slavery or destroy the world in its endless search for more resources to exploit.

Can't tell if serious, but, the arch bad guy in the Avengers series/movies.

Redistribution of wealth by random lottery sounds like some kind of anarchist.

Well I know that, I just donít know anything beyond that.

I was also making an obscure joke about an old, and probably obscure parody of a song by a comedian who became obscure because of the direction they took their career.

Not any anarchist I've ever heard of.  Re-distribution of wealth, sure, although not unique to anarchism.  But the random lottery part has no relation to any anarchist school of thought I'm aware of.

it also would serve no real purpose;

The randomly assigned people would just become the new plutarchs overnight.   The problem is the gross difference between incomes among the populace, not who is currently wealthy and who is not.


Personally, I think it would be better to impose increasingly burdensome bads on people who fixate on being the wealthiest of the wealthy instead.  Taxes have been a historically tried one (that gets loopholed to death).  I would suggest something more constructive though.

The major quasi-religious petard I keep hearing is that "private interests" can do a better job with helping the poor and all that, so we should codify into law that they are responsible for that, with the degree of responsibility heaped on them being consistent with the curve distribution of their wealth.  EG, people in the top 1% are legally responsible for the healthcare and welfare of the bottom 99%, with the top earners being responsible for the greater portion of that assistance.  They can render that assistance directly if they want (such as via a charity, or even writing checks for medical care for poor people) but they have to keep reciepts, and must provide that proof at the end of each year; The goal being that all that capital gain and wealth increase they are engaging in must also reimburse the society for its extraction from society, with the goal of harnessing that drive to improve standards of living across the whole of society, and not just in the top 1%.

It's a silly idea sure-- but I think it might be interesting to try.  Throw in actual penalties for trying to game the system though, and I mean "No, we are confiscating ALL of your holdings, and sending you to prison, asshole" levels of punishment here.  To have even the slightest chance of working, the penalties for gaming the system must be equivalent to ostracism from the society. (EG, the financial equivalent there to.)
