It's behind a paywall after the first couple paragraphs, but looks like garbage trolling?

It wasn't paywalled yesterday, but it was basically just several paragraphs of extremely poor arguments trying to defend shoes in the house, none of which actually justify violating someone's household rules

Over 9000 kids under the age of five years old wore shoes inside the house in the last year

The Moon should be privatised to help wipe out poverty on Earth, economists say

According to a report by neoliberal think tank the Adam Smith Institute

"Economists" are pretty much the final word as far as "You had one job" goes.

What always gets me about economics is how it refuses to look at real life examples when making theories.

"Such a system would incentivise responsible stewardship of space"

Yeah because we all saw how well that's worked on earth

Let's not forget an uncomfortable fact about the moon landings: they left a bunch of crap behind. Like, literal bags of crap.

Various moon missions have left behind all sorts of junk. Machines, trash, a good ball, a hammer and a falcon feather, and bags containing urine/feces/vomit. Some estimates put the total weight at somewhere around 400lbs. I guess they were trying to save weight on the return trip.

And that's left behind by about a dozen guys. If we colonize the moon, it's gonna become a landfill.

Civilizations are founded on:

1) New types of car brands
2) Micromanaged rocket companies
3) Shitposting

Not to encourage clickthroughs on a shithead account, but it's also hilarious how deep the guy's "ladies on horses" cheesecake collection goes.
