Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

I find her discussion of class to be a minor improvement on Marx.  My problem with Marx is that I have long considered him a Predator Class charlatan--which explains why the various Marxist experiments were FAR from being anything CLOSE to a worker's paradise.

Those of us who actually have Producer Class credentials soon grow used to never being appreciated for what we do.  That is "normal."  But what I cannot tolerate are those lazy social "scientists" who will not even acknowledge our existence.  This woman wouldn't know an accomplished Producer if he or she was working in front of her face.

Why not raise your objections with her directly. I'm sure she would be interested in hearing what you have to say.

Her background is in community organizing, not in theoretical economic philosophy.

I've had discussions with her several times and it has always been interesting.

At the risk of soundling like a jerk, WHY would I want to do that?  Here is a woman who basically believes things that I stopped believing 35 years ago.  I sincerely doubt she spent 1/3 as much time on her essay as I spent just rendering out the illustrations for my video.  And she sees her world as a "community activist."

However, should you want her to get in touch with me, please inform her that I will expect she understands the essay above, and that I will terminate the conversation immediately if I sense that she thinks Producers are inferior to her and need her skills as an "activist."

Closed mindedness is usually the sign of someone who doubts the strength of their own beliefs.

Personally, I don't care what you believe or whether you wish to discuss things with someone with a different perspective. It's your loss, not ours.
