    Default Chess is life and life is always a political struggle...or so they say

    Greetings,

    I am prepared to teach you about chess if we both agree to a mutually beneficial co-operative exchange.
    If you are interested post in this thread and contact me in a PM.

    regards,
    Fg7

    As social mood transitions to negative, we can expect to see less and less “virtue” in hard work.

    Think about it: real wages are virtually stagnant, so it’s not as if people have experienced real reward for their work.

    What has been experienced is an unconscious and shared herding impulse trending upward; a shared optimistic mood finding “joy” and “happiness” in work and denigrating the sole pursuit of leisure, idleness.

    If social mood has, in fact, peaked, we can expect to see a different attitude toward work and productivity emerge.

    The problem is that, to date, bosses have fully capitalized on the potential of the incomplete contract, whereas workers have not. And the only thing preventing workers from doing so is the little boss inside their heads, the cultural holdover from master-servant days, that tells them it’s wrong to do so. I aim to kill that little guy. And I believe that when workers fully realize the potential of the incomplete labor contract, and become as willing to exploit it as the bosses have all these years, we’ll mop the floor with their asses. And we can do it in a free market, without any “help” from the NLRB. Let the bosses beg for help.

    I hope J2G takes up my offer. I understand that you are too much of a coward AC to actually believe that the concept would be mutually beneficial and socially engaging.

    I was not much of a coward when challenging the cops when they just bashed up a dozen demonstrators pushing them through plate glass windows during anti-Vietnam war demos. I don't get more into techno stuff that I have to.

    Well it looks like nobody is prepared to accept my generous offer in November.

    So My December offer is 5 Chess lessons for $10. 30 Minutes each.
    The proviso is that payment must be made in a mutually agree Crypto coin.
