I was private messaging someone and got to thinking about some things; they may have been hashed out years ago on this forum but are new to me so I thought I’d throw them out here.
If a major critique of the way civilization naturally manifests is the extensive parasitism- insider trading/skimming small amounts off the trillions of daily transactions/taxes/etc.- is that angle actually legitimate given the array and extent of parasitism in nature?
If parasites are natural how can they be bad?
Also, are these circles for the marginalized(subjective truth) or for those actually interested in objective truth?
If you found out tomorrow that a rich uncle left you a billion dollars would you still be interested in a different paradigm; or would you hop on the phone and find a professional at gaming the system?
How would you apply a million dollars toward furthering feral culture? Or is using money of all things to do it too diabolical?
I’m guessing the real proponents of civilization(those who do the hard work everyday to keep it relevant) are actually millions of people not inheriting just money but actual business plans. Businesses their ancestors worked hard to set-up. Mortuary affairs and the 10K bill, the guy on the phone with the reverse finance “opportunity”, etc.-- these are just handed down business.
So is being anti-civ more like being pro inheritance tax?
