According to capitalist wisdom, there is only one way to measure what a thing is worth: money. Any knowledge that produces no money is worthless knowledge. Any action that produces no money is worthless action. Therefore, according to capitalist wisdom, the only thing that has any value is money, everything else has only derivative value, based on how much money it can be converted into.

With that in mind, I ask this question: How much money are the capitalist participants of this debating room making from the thoughts which they express here? Are they being paid to write what they write here? If their thoughts are not making money, then, according to their own logic, their thoughts are worthless. If they were worth something, then they would not be giving them out for free. Do they expect us to consider their thoughts to be worth something, when they do not?

Maybe McSpotlight is censoring the more intellectually convincing comments of the capitalist participants, leaving us with only the musings of "stinky vagrants" like ourselves, who cannot convert their thoughts into money, and who therefore condescend to parley with us socialist losers.
