LOL Quote of the Day, Google/YouTube and the “vile maxim”

Posted in Culture of Lickspittle at 1:42 pm by George Smith

From Noam Chomsky’s “Who Rules the World?“:

“The United States somehow finds it difficult to appeal to the poor with its doctrine that the rich should plunder the poor.”


“We lock up the poor for all the rich/And we do it right without no hitch.”

And the objection to this song is…?


Unintentionally hilarious proclamation on the Google/YouTube rent-seeking model of economics:

“YouTube wants to make sure its creators are legit before giving them the opportunity to make money off videos.

“The video giant announced a big change to its partner program on Thursday that now requires creators to reach 10,000 lifetime views before it can run ads on channels.”


The “vile maxim” of the masters of the world, as defined by Adam Smith:

All for ourselves, and nothing for other people.
