Watch this entrepreneurs capitalize on the shortage of cheap housing and a abundant supply of cheap plastic material.



New homes to be built from 18 tonnes of recycled plastic | Daily Mail Online

It's a good thing I never stopped using plastic bags, We have literally created a amazing opportunity.

With everyone always railing against capitalism, I'd like to point out how this is a purely capitalist idea.

This Super Energy-Efficient House Is Made of Plastic

Capitalism will sometimes creat problems, but out of those problems capitalist will find a way to capitalize on the situation .

How's that capitalism saving anything? It seems a desperate attempt to try and save a sinking ship.

Capitalists desperately trying to fix their own colossal mess.

That's the beauty of capitalism. It will find a way to capitalise on global warming. It will creat problems but the innovation it creates will save us from itself,

Once the air is borderline breathable, how hard is it for every city to slap a massive air filtration system? We already have them to filter water. How hard can it be?

People need to relax with all the doom and gloom Bull **** and relax and enjoy the ride. Humans under capitalism will innovate solutions for every problem as they are created.

Man you're really eating from the trashcan of ideology. You provide a good example of how cancerous and self-destructive liberalism can be.

I just have grown to understand that you can't stop progress. Let progress create and solve problems. Roll with it. Enjoy your life man!

It's called wisdom. .

Well the links I've provided are a good sign that capitalism will save us from our own consumerism. You don't find solutions until there is a problem. Humans are master problem solvers, especially under capitalism that rewards people with smart solutions.


Capitalism is a system that rewards smart innovative problem solution.

There is nothing we can't solve under this system.
It is the ultimate problem solution solver system.

Everyone has the potential of gaining massive reward for discovering a solution to a problem we want to solve. And it's on a global scale.
It has canalized the whole planet in one big solution problem solving industry.

A problem that needs a solution that people will reward with capital is the mother of all invention.

For every problem we create, capitalism will invent 1000000 solutions.

Agreed, but I still think laziness is the mother of all invention.

I agree
Before capitalism was invented to capitalise on this human trait and capitalized by rewarding innovation to solve our problems.

I think capitalism has capitalized on our laziness.

I also think that anyone who hates capitalism is a bleeding idiot who has no fu€King idea what the hell they are talking about. Because they are excluding the fact that everyone has massively benefited from capitalism and the innovations it has promoted. Like plumbing, to name one. They are to intellectually feeble to realize how many things we take for granted, that have been available to everyone because of capitalism.

Has anyone any arguments to bring forth, to prove me wrong?

That's only because you are stupid and lazy. And suffering from a bad case of pen is envy.

This bears repeating.....


Tax System explained in beer.

Suppose that every day, ten men go out for beer and the bill for all ten comes to $100.

If they paid their bill the way we pay our taxes, it would go something like this

The first four men (the poorest) would pay nothing.

The fifth would pay $1.

The sixth would pay $3.

The seventh would pay $7.

The eighth would pay $12.

The ninth would pay $18.

The tenth man (the richest) would pay $59.

So, that's what they decided to do.

The ten men drank in the bar every day and seemed quite happy with the arrangement, until one day, the owner threw them a curve.



'Since you are all such good customers,' he said, 'I'm going to reduce the cost of your daily beer by $20.' Drinks for the ten now cost just $80.

The group still wanted to pay their bill the way we pay our taxes. So the first four men were unaffected. They would still drink for free. But what about the other six men? The paying customers

How could they divide the $20 windfall so that everyone would get his 'fair share?'


They realized that $20 divided by six is $3.33. But if they subtracted that from everybody's share, then the fifth man and the sixth man would each end up being paid to drink his beer.

So, the bar owner suggested that it would be fair to reduce each man's bill by roughly the same amount, and he proceeded to work out the amounts each should pay.

And so the fifth man, like the first four, now paid nothing (100% savings)


The sixth now paid $2 instead of $3 (33% savings).


The seventh now pay $5 instead of $7 (28% savings).


The eighth now paid $9 instead of $12 (25% savings).


The ninth now paid $14 instead of $18 ( 22% savings).


The tenth now paid $49 instead of $59 (16% savings)

Each of the six was better off than before. And the first four continued to drink for free. But once outside the restaurant, the men began to compare their savings.

I only got a dollar out of the $ 20,' declared the sixth man. He pointed to the tenth man,' but he got $10!'


'Yeah, that's right,' exclaimed the fifth man. 'I only saved a Dollar, too. It's unfair that he got ten times more than I!'


'That's true!!' shouted the seventh man. 'Why should he get $10 back when I got only two? The wealthy get all the breaks!'

'Wait a minute,' yelled the first four men in unison. 'We didn't get anything at all. The system exploits the poor!'

The nine men surrounded the tenth and beat him up.

The next night the tenth man didn't show up for drinks, so the nine sat down and had beers without him. But when it came time to pay the bill, they discovered something important. They didn't have enough money between all of them for even half of the bill


And that, boys and girls, journalists and college professors, this is how our tax system works.


The people who pay the highest taxes get the most benefit from a tax reduction.


Tax them too much, attack them for being wealthy, and they just may not show up anymore.


In fact, they might start drinking overseas where the atmosphere is somewhat friendlier.

When something doesn't fit our narrative logic can be temporarily suspended to save ourselves the shame of realizing our whole life ideas are Nothing but one big pile of crap

We do it with God everyday.

I thought you were against progressiveness.

I want to argue but no one here has an IQ over 80 to put together anything worthy of arguing.

That "laziness" argument is older than ****, probably older than the dust from your farts. There's no foundation of reality in it, it's just horse**** propagated by the wealthy to demonize the poor, and stupid working class lumpenproles like you use it to demonize your own class.

Considering the next president of the US will either be a moderate leftist or a Nazi, I wouldn't bank on the rise of capitalism any time soon.

It's the only place that actually championed capitalism and even that is dying.


Most countries have been swinging left and for good reason.


People still need good representation.

I hope that you know that you have to be "working" to be part of the working class...
This kind off leaves out a lazy bum like you.....

In the new world the mods must mandate capitalism, like vaccines, to arrive at a splendid new order of human existance, the thought being that we can always improve on the model. Profit surely is the prime directive of the human organism. I see no reason not to follow the wholesome natural law, it dosen't have to be a jungle. Jungles are not for everyone, first few times arround. Take heart you'll be back.

Capitalism is a system in whitch you are rewarded for Innovative solutions. Some of those solutions that capitalism have found, for problems like long distances ,have created new problems, but as we have seen, capitalism is perfectly suited to solve them, as it will reward those who do.

I much rather live in a system that rewards Inovative problem solvers, then some arbitrary ruler King chosen by God.

Me too, I'd be an innovator for the masses, it takes a lot of hands to build a tower,we should get those hands in grade schools, one short decade and you have youthmovements, sharp uniforms, and orders of conquest, chaching chaching, profit is God, earn learn almost the same word
