I haven't written anything in a long time. I had nothing to write - after 160 articles, the topics begin to repeat. Politicians are still doing the same nonsense, "economists" are pushing the same nonsense, and different bastards continue to claim their religion. It simply happens that a person runs out of energy to constantly discover the wheel.
And so I worked, progressed the career ladder, improved my standard of living. Even so, everything I wrote about - economics, politics and more - remained my hobby. I kept watching everything. Only instead of protracted expression, only smirks and thoughts, like "again", remained on the web.
Usually it was "again" with a dot. But now I came across "again" with exclamation mark.
Again - an invoice for Christmas dinner
I once wrote an article called "The Charlatan Sedlacek“. I discussed Sedláček's article in it, his concept of rationality, price, exchange (and so on).
Now I read the article "Communism is not a bad word“By Jakub Hájek alias Jimmy Hayek.
I'm not talking about communism at all right now. Well, a few quotes:
… When you give presents to your family and friends at Christmas, isn't that a manifestation of communism? Does the mother expect to receive as much from her ten-year-old son as she needs from her earning husband? And when he prepares Christmas Eve dinner, does he then cash in on family members or issue them an invoice? '
… And finally, the various associations (communities) where people meet together interest and often do they perform for their association without the right to remuneration? What about tens of thousands of volunteers and donors?
After all, even the "most right-wing" Czech party as they are Single it works more or less on the communist principle. The minimum annual membership fee is set according to the ability to pay… Volunteers distribute leaflets and help with campaigns. Supporters of the party have the same vote in the internal party primaries as the members, although they do not have such a responsibility. Despite the various differences of opinion, it is important for everyone to grow and get as many votes as possible in the elections….
All these manifestations have one thing in common - they are dary, not a shift. … We simply give without claiming a specific consideration in of interest some community. Parents do not keep a children's bill that they would give them to be paid once in adulthood. … This is real communism based on voluntariness and unencumbered by political ideology.Communism and capitalism are not contradictory, but complementary. Communism works well within smaller communities where people know each other because it is based primarily on trust…
And what is the market / capital etc. based on? And… we could talk here about what money is, what exchange is, what interpersonal exchange is, opportunity costs, what is the market, market making of morality and social norms / institutions, rationality…
But I don't have enough energy anymore.
Just - again.
