Great link. Thanks. The comments are very funny, too. :) One comment says "At this rate, there will be no more womens sports. Just two mens sports." (typo corrected). I would say there would be two men's sports: men and castrated men.

Another one: Competing in women’s Olympic weightlifting really takes balls.
LOL

Ha, that is an interesting theory. :)

It may need a slight rephrase, such as: The unchecked expansion of capital out of the West led to economic stagnation in the West. When the leftists in the West stirred up the hatred towards the capital, the capital moves out but those workers who depend on it for higher productivity (thus higher standard of living) are left behind and increasingly depend on the hand-out from the leftist government. A vicious circle ensued.
Capital is actively fleeing. This has little to do with the left. Social welfare is simply to reduce the cost of maintaining social stability. Rather than support for the underlying. A capitalist society should always think in terms of business logic. Any human nature involved is far from the truth.

Do you know that the term "capitalist" was invented by a socialist whose intention was to disparage? A society is always far more complex than its economic model. Therefore, a "capitalist" society doesn't necessarily always think in terms of business logic.

Rational behavior must have commercial logic. It's just sometimes you have to know whose interests it is. What you think is not a business case is more likely that you don't see the real beneficiaries.

Rational behavior must have a reason, which may not be commercial. Even interests don't have to be economic interests. They can be cultural, traditional, or even religious. That is why I said that a society is far more complex than its economic model. I know of no school of thoughts, except Marxism, believes that economic system determines everything else.

It's just a mapping of economic relationships at different levels.

Then you are truly in Marxism school. :)
I also want human society to show more noble qualities. But it didn't. Perhaps this is the meaning of communism, and when communism is realized, human society can develop to a higher level. We hate the cycle of world power game. It's time to end it. The US will be the last hegemon in the world.

to be fair, most of these female weightlifting medalists are on some serious virilizing testosterone and Peds lol, it's just that they time their cycles to pass the drug tests. But yeah this whole transgender thing happening in the West is really bizarre.
