Actually there are 3 ways to see assholes
2. He’s not an asshole, you’re the one that’s too dumb
3. Actually the asshole is right all along. It’s the way the game should be played in the first place. It’s actually smart.
As I grow older and older, I tend to think #3 is correct.
If those muslims are so stupid why do they make more kids than you? And if they were nicer, for example. Say they invent things like jews. Would you be nicer to them? How nice have european been to the jews? How nice have whites, asians, or anyone have been toward capitalists?
I saw african warlord (like Kony) slaughtering people. I heard about kids “forced” to kill others by Kony. Fine. Kony is an asshole. Agreed. Now say Kony repented. Kony would now stop being an asshole and start a software company instead and aim for some public offering. Then what? The mere acts of making honest money will be punishable by taxes. The mob would say that it’s the obligation of productive diligent people to support lazy parasites.
If we define “force” as artificial increase of substitute strategies with high cross elasticity coefficient (the same definition I used to say that marriage is forced), Kony too, is forced to be a warlord, by market distortion caused by government’s intervention.
We live in a world where good people are slaughtered and mass murdered and assholes are being exalted. Is it hard to believe that people turn into jerks? It’s what get them in the gene pool. It’s our karma for failing to hail Milton Friedman and support market mechanism.
