I made three thousand dollars in unrealized gains just last week, and ab over 300K increase in NAV since President Trump assumed office.

Glad you're doing well, Franco. My only point is that doing well in the future might not be the same. I'd simply rather live in an ownership society than an investor one that creates "proles".

If I understand yu correctly, you see –– what i have seen for at least forty or more years –– that the Industrial Rebolution brought the advent of large corporations staffed with hundreds, even thousands of underlings.

I called it NEO-FEUDALISM when I first discerned what had happened.

This regrettable change from an agrarian to an industrialized society in turn gave birth to Marxism.

From TRIBAL CHIEFTAINS, to POTENTATES running of small principalities, to KINGS of larger territories defined as NATIONS, to EMPERORS ruling vast extended realms won or bought through Military Conquest and Subjugation of Native populations, through the Depotism of the Mediaeval and Renaissance Church of Rome and other Theocracies, to the Evils of Mercantilism, to the Enlightenment and the all-too-brief, once-beautiful existence of the United States BEFORE industrialization effectively revived FEUDALISM, to the NEO-BARBARISM of the Present Day at NO TIME were men FREE from SOME form of objectionable DOMINATION.

We are in many respects like CREATURES of the HIVE. We yearn for freedom andindependence, but in truth we CANNOT live in isolation from each other, and that means we must ACCEPT the power that accrues to LEADERSHIP, even tho]ugh we K OW that "Power Corrupts."

In short: "Life's a bitch, and then you die." GET USED TO IT.

We don't HAVE to continue to follow and maintain laws that favor ever larger corporations and corporate globalism to the disadvantage of smaller, individually owned enterprises. We can CHANGE them to favor the LATTER.

We live in a society that renders workers increasingly unemployable. Such economics are unsustainable if they continue to run to their inevitable end. There will be no one with the financial ability to "consume" the ever-increasingly efficiently and more cheaply products produced. The market (as evidenced by the declining "Middle Class") is being destroyed.

When life gives you robots, become a robot programmer / repairman.

-FJ said...

...those will eventually be "other robots."

Hell yeah

We will build sex robots so realistic that they will refuse to sleep with us too.

All they'll need to do is program them to order useless products from Amazon, and then they'll be exactly like human wives...
