The Communists say, equal labour entitles man to equal enjoyment. No, equal labour does not entitle you to it, but equal enjoyment alone entitles you to equal enjoyment. Enjoy, then you are entitled to enjoyment. But, if you have laboured and let the enjoyment be taken from you, then – ‘it serves you right.’ If you take the enjoyment, it is your right.

Stoned and watching videos again?

Can you post a transcript for those of us who don't have the time to waste.

Meaning? Please elaborate.

Also, consider the merits of actually educating yourself on the environment and what environmentalism is from those who actually conduct research in the field. Some keywords: ecosystems, trophic cascades, edge effects, biodiversity.

I didn't watch this, but I think I know the clip you posted. This was shortly after his wife died of cancer. He just puts the Earth in perspective as a beast in which we infest. At some point it will shake us off like a case of fleas and life will go on without us.

Any significantly advanced cryptocurrency is indistinguishable from Ponzi Tulips.

presumably the usual spiel of that regardless of what humans do, short of saturation nuclear bombardment of the entire surface of the planet (and even that might not get rid of everything), life on earth will continue merrily until the sun goes red giant, boils off the oceans, and strips the earth of its atmosphere.

however, if we don't stop fucking stuff up, human life will not be continuing on earth.

i imagine the assumption that if we manage to fuck up so badly we can't live here, that we won't be living here

I think even in the case that we fuck up THAT badly, people would still live here just because, i mean, we are human, if nature doesn't wan't us here will will change nature , if we destroy everything that allows us life, we will recreate it, necessity being the mother of invention i can see "the end of the world" being a giant boost to technology

Introducing constraints to the economy only serves to limit what can be economical.

That's pretty much it. Until we learn how to stop being a cancer and instead be symbiotic, we're not on a good path.
