YES to my girlfriend when she’ll ask me “do you want to marry me?”
So many “yes” in France :-)) unbelievable
I’ve reblogged this before. I’ll reblog it again
Oh, man, you guys are *So* close here…
In America we have a saying: “Whooooosh! Right over your head…”
Yes, if you’re incredibly limited in your thinking, if your mind is of a limited scope so to speak, the observation is a bit “Bourgeois” (or classist), but the statement is not intended to be so limited. It’s an example. It’s an illustration of a point: Incentive is gone. This was hardly limited to waiters in restaurants, but actually permeated the entire society.
There is real classism, there is real snobbery, but this isn’t it.
The problem isn’t limited to the waiter. Nobody in the restaurant has any incentive to perform their duties adequately let alone well. The person who hires (and one assumes may fire) the waiter has no incentive either.
If you really want to claw into the Bourgeois then you can use this example, but not the way you think.
See, the “Bourgeois” are so incredibly keen on the “incentive” idea, they can spot it’s absence when it DOESN’T matter to them, but they turn right around and ignore it in the case of welfare & such here at home.
Seriously, working long hours at subsistence wages is an incentive for… ???
We want the poor to pull themselves up by their boot straps, yet they… err…
I was going to say that they have no clear path to a comfortable, middle class life but that would be wrong. The correct wording is that they CLEARLY HAVE NO PATH out of poverty and into a comfortable, middle class life.
the poor in the west have ZERO incentive.
Now isn’t it funny that the same Bourgeoisie that is so good at chastising socialism for eliminating the incentive — and pointing out the resulting damage — are incapable of seeing themselves do it when & where it really matters to them?
In the end it doesn’t matter to a western executive if the people in Russia or elsewhere lacked an incentive. It had no impact on them, apart from making them more secure in their positions in the west. But they do have a stake at home. They do have a stake in the poverty at home, any & all social ills associated with it including the crime… they have a stake in western poverty and yet they are blind to their own lack of incentives. They champion negative incentives at home and violently oppose anyone who tries to stop them.
UNBELIEVABLE! the french senate vote YES to the same sex people marriage!!! I’m crazy. Here we are! Gay marriage in France.
