  1. Looking down regular middle class people for looking to save and invest wisely certainly isn't wise. The world needs more financially literate people, most young people I see are terrible with money (saving and investing) because they're stuck in consumerism and materialism. You have to be so fucking rich to eventually retire off wealth if you don't invest any of it and hold it all as cash
  2. He’s technically not a baby boomer, he’s part of the silent generation
  3. Green is usually against retributive justice, unless it comes to right wingers
  4. Yikes that’s kinda insane if even he isn’t that great. He’s done it non stop for like 20 years...
  5. @The Lucid Dreamer Agreed, he exhibits a large degree of nuance and open mindedness. Not to mention he’s very charismatic (duh)
  6. The guys from Charisma on Command run a great podcast and just name dropped @Leo Gura at 1:26:50 when metaphysics came up. Imo it’s a fairly stage yellow show, especially Charlie (who has also talked about Ramana Maharishi). Perhaps Leo would be a good guest
  7. Whilst he should have been convicted, this might work out well for the Democrats. If Trump runs as a third party he'll split the right vote, which would be great
  8. @Strangeloop Have you fantasised and obsessed about fucking attractive girls that you come by? If not, I’d say you’re gay, or maybe even asexual? The desire to screw women is strong, my sense is you’d know if you had it
  9. That question could apply to every trait. “Why doesn’t every girl have big boobs then”, “why isn’t every a genius” etc. people exist relative to a spectrum of what is advantageous for survival. I’d agree that it’s not actually extroversion or introversion itself that makes someone more or less attractive. You can be a super grounded confident introvert, or you could be a goofy extrovert that no one takes seriously. However, in practice extroverts get laid more because it lends itself over putting yourself in optimal situations more. IMO, if you’re truly a natural introvert, don’t try and become “the life of the party” guy if it’s not actually you. Just work on being super confident when you are in social situations
  10. I think it’s to do with skill the worker has as well. A highly skilled worker is obviously going to be paid more than someone making coffees , because the skill is more scarce. Pretty basic supply and demand. And by Marxist logic, capital owners exploit the workers as much as they can basically. A skilled engineer employee has an incentive to still be paid as little as possible by the capital owners, so there’s a reason they would remain better paid.
  11. I watched this whole thing, complete shitshow. it wasn’t really a socialism vs capitalism debate. It was more a debate about the nuances of what standard you should hold your personal actions in the real world in relation to your socialist ideals. Interestingly, even Vaush doesn’t believe it’s wrong as a socialist to employ workers or be a landlord
  12. You're right, I meant nominal rate not real rate. Where I am now, term deposit rates are 0.55% whilst inflation rate is about 1%, so it's a negative real return...
  13. Ironically only those that have very high incomes have the luxury of not needing to worry about where to put their savings, instead of investing it. If it makes little difference to you whether your life savings are earning 2% in the bank of compounding at 8%, you're doing extremely well...
