Left-liberal economist: So, what society needs to be stable is upward mobility for the 99%. That's what's missing in all our growth. *Upward mobility*.
Me: Upward? As in, raising your relative social status? Relative to others?
Me: For the 99%.
Me: All of them.
Economist: Yes, we just need every member of the 99% of society to be able to constantly improve their social status relative to every other member of the 99%.
Economist: Cage fighting.
Why don't tech bros or other "visionaries" ever unveil the bus of the future in big events?
The bus requires virtually no additional infrastructure, can have its routes organically changed and is relatively affordable.
I am all for transportation infrastructure investment in the US in trains and light rail but the bus is a solution that can be implemented better right now.
I want to see what a future bus looks like, not what some insecure man's need to take up space and waste gas looks like.
I hope I never get my fill
Of pushing this boulder up on this hill
Getting to the top and taking a spill
Every time's like the first time
Every time is the same
