Guest Post by Nestorius: Your Parents Want to Starve You!

February 9, 2011 2 comments

In many countries the young are being crushed by a gerontocracy of older workers who appear determined to cling to the better jobs as long as possible and then, when they do retire, demand impossibly rich private and public pensions that the younger generation will be forced to shoulder.

So who is this gerontocracy that wants to crush the young ones?

These are your parents. That generation that was born after WW II. All those lame assholes who were indoctrinated during the 60s and 70s. But what is the common thing among them? Well, one thing is common: they think that they don’t owe their kids anything (except suckling them with powder milk). With them, it’s parental piety in one direction only.

Your parents have been fooling you with lots of things. Why do you think they kept telling you to get out of their houses, find a job, be on your own, and if you don’t do that you will not be men? It’s all part of the scam, that is designed in order to allocate all the resources to themselves. In short, your parents don’t care about you. They don’t care if you starve.

It appears inevitable that this favor will be returned.

The Concept of Victimless Crime is Absurd

February 9, 2011 5 comments

Many of you are aware of the concept of “victimless crimes”, but is such a thing possible?

Crime is:

A breach of rules or laws for which some governing authority (via mechanisms such as legal systems) can ultimately prescribe a conviction.

But why does criminal law exist?

Criminal law, or penal law, is the body of rules that defines conduct that is prohibited by the state because it is held to threaten, harm or otherwise endanger the safety and welfare of the public, and that sets out the punishment to be imposed on those who breach these laws.

The existence of a criminal law requires the possibility that someone is, or can be, a victim of any proscribed act. Of course, there are various legal ways to create victims.

If we abandon legal sophistry for a minute, it is obvious that situations where harm is not obviously measurable, and everyone involved can comprehend the basic risks of the situation/ transaction is not a crime- as understood by most human beings. Criminalizing something without obvious innocent victims is linked to the need of some humans to control others. Indeed, such laws have deleterious effects on social welfare.

What percentage of the law enforcement budget is spent on enforcing laws based on a need for social control, rather than any legitimate need. Did I mention that the legal-prison system is getting really large and expensive to run, especially since it is not a productive use of resources by any reasonable standards?

What Chinese Really Think About Their Condition

February 9, 2011 2 comments

An adult themed gory cartoon that has supposedly become a underground hit in China. Even without understanding the language, you can follow the general story.

and here is a little background: A Subversive Chinese New Year’s Greeting

The creator Wang bo stated in an interview with The Wall Street Journal that the video wasn’t rallying people to revolt. Wang bo has previously described his films as “abstract works that parallel what is going on in reality, constructing another spiritual world parallel to the real world.”

Ya, sure!

So there we have it, internal criticism in China does reach beyond Ai Weiwei and Liu Xiabo and the younger generation isn’t as apathetic as they may be perceived to be. However, these criticisms are often hidden in metaphors and allegorical meanings may be harder for the international community to immediately connect to.

Do you think that that the 20-30 somethings in China don’t realize that the current directions and ways are failing?

Here is a link to another article on that subject: The Youth Unemployment Bomb

The article starts out OK, but then degenerates into elitist bullshit.

In Tunisia, the young people who helped bring down a dictator are called hittistes — French-Arabic slang for those who lean against the wall. Their counterparts in Egypt, who on Feb. 1 forced President Hosni Mubarak to say he won’t seek reelection, are the shabab atileen, unemployed youths. The hittistes and shabab have brothers and sisters across the globe. In Britain, they are NEETs — “not in education, employment, or training.” In Japan, they are freeters: an amalgam of the English word freelance and the German word Arbeiter, or worker. Spaniards call them mileuristas, meaning they earn no more than 1,000 euros a month. In the U.S., they’re “boomerang” kids who move back home after college because they can’t find work. Even fast-growing China, where labor shortages are more common than surpluses, has its “ant tribe” — recent college graduates who crowd together in cheap flats on the fringes of big cities because they can’t find well-paying work. In each of these nations, an economy that can’t generate enough jobs to absorb its young people has created a lost generation of the disaffected, unemployed, or underemployed — including growing numbers of recent college graduates for whom the post-crash economy has little to offer.

eCONomists have no real solutions for that problem, just lot of hand waving and repeating worn out memes.

More common is the quiet desperation of a generation in “waithood,” suspended short of fully employed adulthood. At 26, Sandy Brown of Brooklyn, N.Y., is a college graduate and a mother of two who hasn’t worked in seven months. “I used to be a manager at a Duane Reade (drugstore) in Manhattan, but they laid me off. I’ve looked for work everywhere and I can’t find nothing,” she says. “It’s like I got my diploma for nothing.” While the details differ from one nation to the next, the common element is failure — not just of young people to find a place in society, but of society itself to harness the energy, intelligence, and enthusiasm of the next generation. Here’s what makes it extra-worrisome: The world is aging. In many countries the young are being crushed by a gerontocracy of older workers who appear determined to cling to the better jobs as long as possible and then, when they do retire, demand impossibly rich private and public pensions that the younger generation will be forced to shoulder.
