Read multiple times as 'I propose eating the poop.'
That's a way less modest proposal.
Someone named Mitsuyuki Ikeda proposed what you misread in a more serious way back around 8-10 years ago. And if you value your sanity, you won't google that.
Supposedly in China, people are now just taking craps in public trash bins, and it's become a social norm; if they start eating it, then there'd be free buffets all over town!
So what you're saying is Einstein was ahead of his time on things other than physics?
Ah, yes: Dr. Shitburger, himself.
First I have heard about an Einstein feces thing.
Hey, those burgers have tons of protein, iron, potassium, Bmvitamins, vitamin hepatitis A, and other nutrients and stuff, (after being mixed with soy and vegetable proteins) and are cheap as shit to make.
I'd rather eat insects then having a cheesburger made with a round disc of feces and a slice of toilet paper on top.
You guys have a problem. XD
Be careful with your use of "then" and "than"
Let's imagine a world where the United States doesn't exist (and as a result, neither do any of the world changing scientific / medical / technological advances it has been the source of) and instead we have to depend on the innovation and exceptionalism of those super happy Scandinavian countries.
Yeah, I laughed my ass off too. I mean, the Viking boats we'd all be be transporting ourselves around in would be cool and all, but I much prefer the car I drive courtesy of Mr. Henry Ford, American capitalist.
^Do you drive a Ford or do you believe that Henry Ford invented the automobile?
Neither, but his contribution to the mass manufacturing and ubiquity of the automobile is irrefutable.
You mean courtesy of Karl Benz. Actually you know what I’m not even going to bother with you.
I addressed that in my comment right above yours. I'm well aware Ford didn't invent the automobile. My actual point was that capitalism is the least shitty system, far superior to Socialism or (lol) Communism. I don't care about "happiness indexes". Not sure what you're so upset about.
Since you brought up the Happiness Index:
In 2018, the happiest country is Finland. A Scandinavian country, right? Nope, check your geography. A socialist country, right? Nope, check your civics books.
Finland is a parliamentary republic with a representative democracy, almost exactly like the USA.
But the party in power there is the socialist party, right? Not at all. Actually, it's the Centre Party, the party that stands for moderation and for freedom and liberty, much like the founding fathers of the USA.
So, bringing up the happiness index, at least in the year 2018, is counter-productive to the pro-marxism side of the debate.
I don't care what you call it, if they offer a form of universal healthcare, strong unions and common sense gun control, count me in.
The United States isn't shitty because it's capitalist, it's shitty because we, Americans, are awful people.
Well, Finland is also one of the most sparsely populated nations in Europe. Northern Michigan has a lot of Finnish people, or, at least it did a generation ago. Most now are probably second generation. I remember stopping to ask for directions once and the guy kept saying vasee-maleh to me, and I only found out later that he was telling me to go left, in Finnish, assuming that I must have known how to understand Finnish. But I digress.
I think here in the USA, we have two groups, the right and the left, and that's where most of the movers and shakers fit in, and those two groups have little overlap. The right sees any social program as socialism, like it might as well be Stalinism. Often times, the left will come forward with a proposal like, "maybe we should look into these bump stocks," and the far right takes that as "they're going to take away all of our guns!"
IDK, I think you're 100% right on point, though. We have too many assholes here and those assholes have too much freedom to shit all over everyone. In a nation that prides itself on allowing people the freedom to be an asshole all they want so long as they don't shit all over someone else, it makes every situation a little difficult to control.
Meanwhile, I'm living out here in northeastern Vermont. The population density here is such that I might as well live on the moon. And I love it. Everyone knows everyone else, so it makes stuff like road rage practically disappear. If Mr. Haney cuts me off on the way to work, I know I'll see him at bowling Tuesday night and he can apologize.
Finland is also ranked 35th on the list of countries by suicide rate.
