I have a bit of a vendetta against recycling.
Maybe not against all recycling. If you are homeless and you wish to collect the state taxed redemption value … Okay, I get it.
But for us people who value our time, space, and resources … recycling is a waste of time. Ohhh … but you heard that recycling actually IS productive, and is worth the money? Heck, a recycled aluminum can is almost fully recyclable and doesn’t even get degraded as time goes on … it can be recycled over and over. It is also vastly cheaper to use recycled ones rather than using new materials … Maybe?
When you do the math, recycling values your time at less then $5 an hour (If you are doing it well). If your neighbor asked you to mow their lawn for $5 an hour, you would likely laugh at them, or if you are not an ass, you would politely say, “No, thank you.” The reports showing how recycling is an economic plus thinks you are a fucking slave! They value your time, space, and effort at a giant $0 an hour.
The environmental ideas surrounding recycling are made up by commies who have no idea how economics works. They just wish to form a moral cult to shame and manipulate people into doing what they say.
Okay, okay …. If this was all, I wouldn’t actually have much of a vendetta. I would view recyclers as people who have given up on life, or are a part of a large global cult that is dedicated to a perfectionistic standard of time wasting. Whatever dude … if you want to.
Where my vendetta is born is from how we teach children that their time is worth nothing. That time spent in school and on TV shows is spent teaching them to value their time at nothing. Their effort is more valuable sorting trash than it is watching awesome adventures and learning about the amazing world we live in. That is what inspires my vendetta … the idea that our children’s time and effort is equivalent to a slave.
However, lets be honest, slaves weren’t that cheap. No sane slavemaster would ever have their slaves waste their time sorting trash.
