    He is one hundred percent po-faced about this. Miller-kun believes with deadly seriousness in the Clash Of Civilizations. Here's a bit from an interview he had on NPR:

    "Frank Miller: Well, okay, then let’s finally talk about the enemy. For some reason, nobody seems to be talking about who we’re up against, and the sixth century barbarism that they actually represent. These people saw peoples’ heads off. They enslave women, they genitally mutilate their daughters, they do not behave by any cultural norms that are sensible to us. I’m speaking into a microphone that never could have been a product of their culture, and I’m living in a city where three thousand of my neighbors were killed by thieves of airplanes they never could have built."

    ITT Frank Miller thinks Islam is a culture, except when it's an Ideology of Terror, except when it's a sinister religion...Basically, Islam is whatever Frank Miller finds most spooky at any given time.

    If you also swallow the jingoistic cat piss known as Clash Of Civilizations, take it to another thread. We're making fun of Frank Miller here, and you by extension.

    I don't believe in that. As far my poor economy education goes, in a "supply and demand"-thing it is allways the supply that finds it's demand, and not the other way round. So I'm with FinalLegion here.

    Your assumption of consumers choice in the way of homo oeconomicus is propably less total, than you indicate it may be. However, as far deliberate consumership imply a special mindset, I'm with you.
    Still, mindset without that extra money to spent for products of deliberate choice eventually lacks in power to move from wishful thinking to proper action.

    My guess, corporations do outsource, evade taxation etc, for two reasons. First, because the get the impression it is profitable - at least to them, and second, because chances are great the get away with it.

    Keep in mind, please, from the point of view of business administration taxes and wages are expenses and have to be reduced in order to maximize profit. To accomplish this is the job of business-people. Thus by their very occupation they are latent tax evadors and exploiters.

    It's all set by man and can be changed. Stop outsourcing paying of and you'll stop outsourcing to a great deal.

    Not trying to rain on your parade at all, just sort of shocked that people will (with a straight-face and in all seriousness) still make statements like he has, and that there are people who will accept them as true.

    of the Phillipines being particularly interesting.

    We have an Occupy Honolulu in Oahu. Regardless of what others think about the occupy movement in general, I find the Occupy Honolulu people funny specifically because they hunkered down in the park by Ward Avenue, and to do that they had to kick out a whole bunch of homeless people.

    Edit: Crap, sorry for the necro. Should have checked the last post date.

    That is funny. Most Occupy movements feed and shelter the homeless before getting arrested for protesting.
