Set forth below are the texts of three comments put to the Goon Central site: (1) a post by me commenting on a statement advanced by Dab; (2) a response to my post by GW; and (3) my response to GW.
Dab made an important point with his post containing these words:i like how rob gets himself so worked up over what someone else is doing with their own money, and not bothering rob in the least. as long as they aren’t knocking on your basement door, what do you care? they are happy and content, leave well enough alone and focus on your own account.
The stock market is a community resource. The Buy-and-Holders rape that resource for their own benefit.
If someone pollutes the ocean and is happy and content to do so, should we all leave well enough alone?
If someone puts cancer-causing chemicals in the food he sells us and is happy and content doing so, should we all leave well enough alone?
The Southern towns that did not permit people with black skin to choose their own seats on public buses were happy and content. Should we have left well enough alone?
There are COMMUNITY values.
The entire community of workers builds our economic system. Buy-and-Holders cannot be permitted to destroy our economic system just because there is profit in it.
My sincere take.
