    Did I set them up as opposites? Did anyone?
    Your assertion that 'capitalism needs charitability' requires expansion.
    If you mean that it creates a need for charity, (by creating an underclass) then I would tend to agree.

    oh, is there an economic system that produces a classless society?

    Savage hunter-gatherer societies were classless and everyone was naked, illiterate and unwashed. Go figure.

    Cuba, Venezuela and North Korea are almost classless, everyone is equal in poverty and hunger except for the dictator and his buddies...that's socialism.

    NPs have habit of peering beyond the surface of the text - to context, sub-text and patterns. What he actually meant by it is largely irrelevant to me. It's simply a launching point. That's how Ne works.
    I certainly hope it was a joke, (albeit, a less than amusing one) but you know what they say: "many a true word is spoken in jest". Especially when it comes to the kind of jesting "manly" men do in bars...
    Things imply generality - people have different opinions. Are you too closed-minded to realize that the same thing can be seen a lot of different ways?

    Well I hated literature class at school. I rarely could understand what the authors meant according to the teacher. I could not write interpretations as I would phrase everything into 2-3 sentences while the "best" students would write 2-3 pages about it. They went really deep with their interpretations and it was an utter bore to listen to a few of them, the "best" ones read their works. I barely could stay awake, literally...

    Woman, actually, but I still like to believe I have an eye for the female form, nonetheless.

    I don't remember when she was a virgin though, could you tell me? Did you by any chance happen to be present at the loss of said innocence? (a long shot I admit)


    Male or female, the very fact that I spend my downtime on an internet forum dedicated to typology of all fucking things reduces the chance that I'm the caliber of individual who might've deflowered Adrianna Lima to virtually nil. Still, cheers for the thought lol.

    Frankly if they wanted to have a better product they'd sell virgin women and experienced men or something of that nature. makes more sense sociologically, evolutionarily, blabalbalbalbal etc.

    I guess I dont really give a fuck, I'm all for offer and demand and such.

    No, that's not what I mean, yes, you did suggest a dichotomy by what you had posted.

    The Wealth of Nations is nothing without System of Moral Sentiments. And the greatest advocates of socialism I know do so without reference to altruism or charitability ever, like Oscar Wilde's Soul of Man Under Socialism.

    I'm sensing a strong streak of contrariness in your posting with respect of my views, I'm willing to give you a chance for a bit but in a while I'm going to get tired of it.

    It makes sense to me that the female virgins would be sold at a much higher price.

    I don't understand why anyone would pay for either.

    I dunno I think virgins are pretty boring in bed :/ Exfps are usually pretty good at fucking
    For all that we have done, as a civilization, as individuals, the universe is not stable, and nor is any single thing within it. Stars consume themselves, the universe itself rushes apart, and we ourselves are composed of matter in constant flux. Colonies of cells in temporary alliance, replicating and decaying and housed within, an incandescent cloud of electrical impulses. This is reality, this is self knowledge, and the perception of it will, of course, make you dizzy.
