idk call me a tankie but I simply think that a company making less money is a perfectly acceptable trade in exchange for baby formula being widely available

I saw several news articles about this saying "don't worry there won't be soviet style rationing of baby formula" and it's like. my guy. this is a capitalism fuck up, first of all, keep the USSR out of your mouth. second of all if you have a shortage of an extremely inelastic good a fucking ration is the correct solution!!

the US ruling class has fully convinced themselves that governance itself is evil, which I suppose was always the logical end result of believing in the invisible hand.

this particular line of thinking drives me up a wall because it's the exact same shit as "China's whole economy shut down in this city because of covid!!" like yeah my guy that's what quarantine means. that's what you do when you're trying to prevent the spread of disease. you understand this right

@RussellsBarbershopQuartet listen the market got us into this mess and it'll get us out

@RussellsBarbershopQuartet communism is when the government does things and the more government does the more communism it is

@RussellsBarbershopQuartet much better to have parents forced to pay 275 dollars for a container of baby formula because resellers are heartless parasites than ration it so all parents can get it.
