Just want to vent.
I’m so over hearing about Ryan Kavanaugh, the prolapse, Tate, etc.
These bits had their moments and were funny a while ago. It’s so cringe every time Ethan brings it up to a random guest who has no idea what the inside jokes are.
IMO, I think he needs to widen his perspective when speaking about sensitive topics. Try to actually understand how these things affect people.
And I feel sad that I used to turn to this podcast for comfort during rough times, the last year for me has been hell and the show was something I could look forward to. I’ve cancelled my membership for now which sucks, maybe one day I’ll join again.
I’ll be watching more of Love, AB & Ian on Twitch ✌🏻& 🏻
I have no idea why people see a Royal Guard stomping over a small child and say, "he shouldn't have been in the way" or "Everyone knows that's what you get." Does anyone not hear how insane it sounds to defend that? But speak out against it, and you're the asshole that doesn't respect tradition and their "job". I say fuck'em.
Edit: Another fine example of people not knowing how the upvote/downvote buttons work.
Idiotic leftists like to regurgitate this meme "socialism is when the government does stuff" and that statement goes to show just how little they understand about their own ideology and general lack of intelligence. They don't understand that the government has to do stuff in order to enact socialism, it's like they expect to give an impassioned speech on the merits of socialism in front of all the capitalists and business owners and at the end they'll all applaud and cheer while giving away everything they own, when in reality they're going to have to violently take over every single form of property making a profit. This is why every historical example of Socialism has always devolved in to an impoverished tyranny.
Now, the brainless counter argument leftists like to give is that "huuurrr duuurrrr capitalism relies on violence to" expect the major difference is that capitalist violence is merely the defensive violence used to prevent thugs from waltzing in and claiming 'dibs', while like I previously said socialism requires the initiation of violence on any and all forms of property making a profit, one is clearly more violent than the other.
Now all the leftist cowards here will just whine and down vote while also deny soviet atrocities the same way holocaust deniers do for the Nazis. But you've just gotta accept it, there is nothing liberating or prosperous when it comes to Left Libertarianism, at the end of the day you're all pathetically educated and just not bright, grow up and accept the capitalism as the superior system.
The last 24 hours of Vaush discourse has focused on millionaire YouTuber MrBeast and his continued philanthropy.
I'm not here to really to you to go out and try and cancel MrBeast. But I have seen a concerning amount of "why is this millionaire being charitable seen as a bad thing?" Which is just a stupid take.
So I few facts about MrBeast.
MrBeast's workplace is extremely toxic and not any different than any other capitalist hellhole.
MrBeast wants to be the next "Elon" and believes Elon as his "dream collaborater".
Before MrBeast blew up and began heavily sanitizing his content, it has a noticeable homophobic bent, despite MrBeast calling himself "nice guy" who has always struggled with being too nice. When called out on his use of slurs on Twitter until as recently as 2017 by the Atlantic and they asked for comment, he said he ignores those criticisms and asked the Atlantic to publish a puff piece about him without including his history of slurs.
MrBeast allegedly threw someone out of a chatroom because he couldn't pronounce their name (Farokh Sarmad).
MrBeast, just like all other YouTube hype bros, promoted a cryptocurrency scam that lost many of his viewers huge amounts of money.
Despite massive philanthropy in the form of Team Trees and Team Seas, MrBeast has carefully avoided anything remotely political for much of his career. If you look up "MrBeast politics" on Google, the only thing that comes up is he once said he would run for president in 20 years and we should give everyone $1 million to solve all the problems. The context of said tweet is unclear if he's serious or just joking. And he never truly expanded on either of these thoughts. So far as I can tell, MrBeast avoids anything that can be construed as remotely political. Take for example his tweets from February 2022. So far as I can, not even 1 performative "Happy Black History Month" tweet. It's honestly fascinating.
His content and philanthropy is extremely performative. When he gave his mother $100,000 to pay off her mortgage, she wouldn't accept it. He then told her "you have to because if you don't, I can't make a video and then I can't make money". His mother then accepts it. Depsite all his "nice guy" optics, MrBeast is only in this to make money. That's it. He wants to be rich. He wants to be the next Elon Musk. This isn't about "doing the right thing" because it's the right thing. This is doing the right thing because it makes me tons of money. More than I will ever actually give ever or plan to give away.
I'm not saying go out and be like "MrBeast is an asshole". But can we stop trying to act like this is some "good rich guy" when in fact he's just another capitalist doing capitalist shit to gain more capital.
