ITT: Either people who really don't like Clean Your Room Man, or people who think that they could really create a better economic system than capitalism for this massive country with plenty of forgiveness to the people who have zero clue how it really works.

Jordan isn't very well equipped philisophically for the current state of our YouTube/Social Media youth, that's a given. But how do you think changing the system makes young edgelords happy? It won't. That's like, the most unlikely thing ever, and I'm sorry for saying that. I'm kinda speaking for my own group here, I guess.

Please explain your enlightened third way economic system that didn't do either of these things.


There isn't one, and there doesn't need to be. If you think we're doing capitalism correctly at this point in history, perhaps you could attend an open border orgy.

So your position is we should just submit to getting screwed?

No, seriously, I have no idea what you're trying to argue.

Do you think we're getting screwed? By whom?

There isn't a political solution to any of the this. We're not going to magically vote this away.

Open Borders is an extremely advantageous policy to the average capitalist (namely, "those who generate capital", AKA combine executives, bankers, and other creatures of the finance world), as it allows them to drive the price of unskilled labor down and save money. It's the worker who suffers from open borders, not the investors.

A putsch is also a political solution. You're on Kiwi Farms, not Facebook: you're allowed to say "Race War Now" here.

But we have the biggest roadblock to a free market there is, the Federal Reserve. We're all forced to use the same currency so the value of labor and prices of goods never represent reality. Cartels are never good for the health of a market. We had better upward mobility in the Robber Baron era. Even they were heroes compared to the corporate cocksuckers of today. They built universities, theaters, museums, libraries and donated millions of acres of land to the national parks program. Today's billionaire will start a foundation that never seems to go anywhere.

I think that's what they want. Minimum wage beaners fighting working class schmucks. No one's waging a war on banking cartels.

1. "A unified currency is why there's problems with the US market" is a... very interesting take. How do you feel about corporate scrip?
2. So you'd rather have a socialist uprising? Eat the rich, hang the bankers from the streetlamps?

I myself don't believe that will help anything, bankers are being bankers, they do what they do, make profits, if making a monopoly cartel helps them get more profits and pocket some for themselves, they'll do it. You can't change human nature.

The main problem I see is how do you put some limits or controls on human behavior and not let that same human behavior erode those controls over time? Because that's essentially what we see. Do we have to have a giant ass war every time we need to "reset" the system?

If I was in charge, I'd convince a good chunk of males to obsess over vidya, pony, faggot shit and then the chances of the giant ass war decrease dramatically. You don't ever even have to reset the system.

Well sure if you don't want to reset the system eventually you'd probably slide into a dystopian crossover between a sort of corporatist communist china and a thai military junta. But if you want to keep your kids out of the sex trade, or wake up with all your organs still inside your body, I'd advise against it.

The issues with fractional reserve banking go far beyond the currency being "unified".

Socialist? Where do you get that? I don't think a socialist would give preference to robber barons of over technocrats. I do, however, enjoy trolling JBP discussions. No one knows what's up or down.

An upcoming free speech platform promises to provide users the best features of other social media, but without the censorship.

The subscription based “anti-censorship” platform “Thinkspot” is being created by popular psychologist Dr. Jordan B. Peterson. It’s being marketed as a free speech alternative to payment processors like Patreon in that it will “monetize creators” and as provide a social media alternative to platforms like Facebook and YouTube.

Peterson discussed Thinkspot with podcaster Joe Rogan on June 9, emphasizing a radically pro-free speech Terms of Service. He described that freedom as the “central” aspect saying, “once you're on our platform we won't take you down unless we’re ordered to by a US court of law.”

That will be a profound contrast to platforms that ban users for “misgendering” people who identify as trans, or for tweeting “learn to code” at fired journalists.

The only other major rule on comments he mentioned was that they need to be thoughtful. Rather than suggesting that some opinions are “off limits,” Peterson said they will have a minimum required length so one has to put thought into what they write.

“If minimum comment length is 50 words, you’re gonna have to put a little thought into it,” Peterson said. “Even if you’re being a troll, you’ll be a quasi-witty troll.”

All comments on the website will have a voting feature “and if your ratio of upvotes to downvotes falls below 50/50 then your comments will be hidden, people will still be able to see them, if they click, but you'll disappear.” He later added a caveat saying that was still being mulled over and that “We don't know if 50/50 is right.”

The platform, with its subscription-based service, will also directly subsidize content creators.

Peterson said that a handful of major free speech proponents including Dave Rubin, Michael Shermer are on board to be beta testers for Thinkspot.

Peterson’s daughter Mikhaila spoke encouraged podcast listeners to sign up as testers for the platform in its current beta phase, before the intended August 2019 launch.

“We’re in desperate need for a platform that doesn’t arbitrarily decide to throw people off because of random crowd mentality,” she said.

On Twitter, Peterson also called for beta testers on June 10, “Per the Joe Rogan podcast this week, I'm backing a new platform called thinkspot, currently in Beta. Get on the waitlist here, exciting announcements coming very soon. http://thinkspot.com.“
Ha ha this, guy.

Just look at this.

"free speech platform"

"without the censorship"

"if your ratio of upvotes to downvotes falls below 50/50 then your comments will be hidden, people will still be able to see them, if they click, but you'll disappear"

"We’re in desperate need for a platform that doesn’t arbitrarily decide to throw people off because of random crowd mentality"


So your messages will be some sort of shadowbanned if people downvote them. Real free speech.
