and you fail to grasp the feature "economy of scale" that sheet's cost goes down as you buy more of them (at one time of course). the first one always costs a manufacturer more, because they have to tool for it. the more units, the more the tooling cost is apportioned out. once the tooling cost is covered, the price goes down to materials and time. bigger batches mean less time per unit. the material itself is dirt cheap. the big cost is in machine tooling and product finishing.

Essentially yes. Though LV earned their reputation before actively depreciating it amongst people who value quality over brand power for decades. Maybe LVMH appeal amongst basketball Americans and Asians of all flavours is unflappable but I feel at this point the decline of the LV side of the business is all but inevitable with the only people that I ever see with LV products being decidedly uncool in as objective a sense as is possible.

Personally, for apocalyptic political philosophies, I prefer a biological accelerationist form of posadism. Intentionally spread viral plague killing nearly everyone off leaves everything in a MUCH better situation for recreating a new world than nuclear holocaust does.

But I don't really expect communist aliens like the damn Star Trek Federation to come down and save us from extinction like they do either. Which means no matter what we're not getting to the industrial revolution again with all the surface metal and coal gone. So it's less a traditional posadism and a bit closer to An-Prim. Neolithic man, aboriginal civilization, this time with a lot less superstition.

Haven't seen any of you fags ever demonstrate any understanding of how money laundering works. The sad truth is that there's a market for thoughtless consumption of products regardless of the price and quality as a demonstration of wealth. You only have to look at the way posters here defend GW's obscene pricing including ratcheting up the price of at times decades old kits well beyond inflation as a demonstration of wealth no matter how ridiculous that notion is. Blaming it on le money laundry when there are plenty of legal ways that LVMH can minimise their tax obligations is straight up fucking retarded.

Yes and no. You have to pass a fitness test to get into bootcamp, and then bootcamp makes them healthy. Before you even get to take that test though you have to pass the body mass index, which isn't perfect by any means. My weightlifting teacher told us a story about his buddy who got denied enlistment because he failed BMI standards. Dude was 6'3", 300lbs, 5% body fat. Are most people who fail the BMI a muscle monster like him? No, but it illustrates a flaw of the BMI.

All of which requires schooling, and there isn't an infinite amount of financial assistance to get through schooling. Not to mention a lot of stuff you can go for is being phased out or will be phased out by technology. Two years ago I was reading about how the best field to go into is radiology because people are getting old so there will always be a need for X-rays. I laughed because how soon til automated x-ray machines are a thing?

I'm 28 and I could easily pick up a trade if I went to school, but I have 0 interest in any of them. The only one that seemed interesting to me is welding, but looking into it I discovered most people don't do welding for more than 5 years because it fucks your health up so badly. I genuinely have no idea what to do. Looking at Alaskan trawlers now since it seems interesting to be out at sea and then get into drunken shenanigans on shore leave.

> not everyone is Jeff Bezos. And even him isn't inherently chaotic evil
Duh. They are not evil. They just have their property managed by highly-professional experts who are tasked with maintaining the growth, as otherwise the enterprise dies off. So the experts are employing the most efficient means to do so, on every level from labor management to pressing national policies. The concepts of ethical performance are not built on maintaining the profit margin - so they end up not being the same thing as competitive performance. Meaning those things are inevitably different, and at their ultimate goals will enter a conflict of interests. Competitive performance will inevitably include drastically unethical, predatory and straight up socially-devastating solutions.

So, they are not evil, they merely exploit populace, policy, culture and the very concept of humanity to keep their financial status situated, because that's just how it works. They didn't want for it to end up like that, really, it's just the market conditions that force their hirelings to follow the Board's Policy by saving on bribes given for covering up illegal toxic waste disposal (only illegal because the performance of manufactured destitute was not sufficiently effective to push through a desirable lawmaking policy, as the predictions promised) by employing underage Thai prostitutes in blackmail schemes.
