The owner anti-communist business who allows customers to pay what they want, when they can, is blaming the “lack of generational wealth and seed capital” for the closure of his business.
Translation: I ran out of other people’s money.
Where does he think that generational wealth comes from?
I swear, leftists don’t understand math, business, economics, or, well, anything.
Fuck the rich. Fuck the police. Fuck the state. Fuck the colonial death camp we call “Canada”,” Gabriel wrote.

Shouldn’t that first line be “anti-capitalist?”
I seem to recall something similar happening when the founder of Panera Bread tried to do this. Turns out the regular customer base (who, you know, pay the bills) don’t like sitting next to people who haven’t bathed in a while, prefer non-scary restrooms, and otherwise want a bourgeoisie “civilized” dining experience.
Oh, and of course even many who can pay, will take advantage of your generosity. Welcome to human nature 101.

The truth of that is still hard to stomach though.

Some comrade Bernie fan I bet.
Property is theft, hands off my stuff.
Defund the police, arrest him.
Orwell had a comment about contradictory oppositional thoughts that make no sense in reality.
Sadly we ran the last reality light a long time ago.
A local Che Guevara loving store clerk makes the face pollution every time I come in and it takes some restraint not to mouth off.
When Janquavious comes in you can bet it is all smiley.
Burning it all down, these terms are acceptable.
See, we can agree on something, comrades.

It seems like he was an incompetent “anarchist”. I follow some anarchist blogs and they are big on voluntarism and mutualism where the individuals offering a good or service make an exchange that turns a profit. Dim bulb here didn’t cover costs and expected to use other people’s money to run at a loss while still living comfortably like a good little Socialist.

Anarchism where people exchange freely with each other can’t work as a system for the same reason why all other systems fail: people are greedy.
