However, I think that most people will ultimately find the last two premises non-controversial once you unpack their base assumptions.

2018-09-01 02:23:03 UTC  

@Phillip Wiglesworth - FL Diamonds aren't rare. In fact, I'm fairly certain that they were never actually that rare. The thing that makes them valuable is the fact that it's hard to find one without a flaw.

2018-09-01 02:23:19 UTC  

Also, aren't diamonds found near or in coal beds?

2018-09-01 02:23:42 UTC  

I'm fairly certain that they are one of the most common gemstones on Earth. (being made of carbon)

2018-09-01 02:24:05 UTC  

They are.

2018-09-01 02:24:30 UTC  

@Phillip Wiglesworth - FL However, that being stated, an item's value is not influenced by its rarity. It's influenced by supply/demand.

2018-09-01 02:25:05 UTC  

The supply is deliberately limited. Again...part of the scam effectuated by a particular group of people.

2018-09-01 02:25:09 UTC  

@Phillip Wiglesworth - FL The supply is generally restricted and the demand is kept high through marketing. Ergo, companies can massively overcharge.

Also, in regards to the point that I made previously, we should remember Rules for Radicals when dealing with the growth of our movement.

2018-09-01 02:26:32 UTC  

we need a nice teal gemstone that doesn’t come from an African warzone

2018-09-01 02:26:57 UTC  

If we can't get the majority of Americans on board with our message, we should at least strive to make sure that they aren't opposed to it.

Emerald

2018-09-01 02:27:13 UTC  

??

2018-09-01 02:27:25 UTC  

@Freiheit - CA What about emerald?

2018-09-01 02:27:40 UTC  
2018-09-01 02:27:43 UTC  

oh

2018-09-01 02:27:46 UTC  

apatite is a nice teal color

2018-09-01 02:28:01 UTC  

reactionary wedding rings when

2018-09-01 02:28:10 UTC  

Guys. Let's get back to discussing bird watching. 😉

2018-09-01 02:28:46 UTC  

doves r best birbs

2018-09-01 02:28:49 UTC  

Haven’t been on discord in a minute with school

2018-09-01 02:28:59 UTC  

because they’re huhwite

2018-09-01 02:29:03 UTC  

Do we have any plan to combat the tearing down of statues?

2018-09-01 02:30:03 UTC  

Every one they tear down we put up two of @Reinhard Wolff dabing

2018-09-01 02:30:17 UTC  

@MrDefault Sounds like a good idea.

2018-09-01 02:30:31 UTC  

How about we just build a bunch of them?

2018-09-01 02:31:09 UTC  

Let's have statues for days.

2018-09-01 02:31:28 UTC  

Novo Terracotta Army when?

2018-09-01 02:31:47 UTC  

actually, what if we came out with posters featuring the historical figure whose statue was torn down?

2018-09-01 02:31:49 UTC  

@Rabbidsith The thing is...lab-grown diamonds can be made perfectly flawless with ease now. They're just deliberately made "valueless" by the same scamsters who control the _natural_ diamond trade.

2018-09-01 02:31:51 UTC  

As soon as they tear one down, we just build Mt. Rushmore in its place.

2018-09-01 02:32:04 UTC  

and then put them up in the town where it happened

2018-09-01 02:32:18 UTC  

sort of like the posters with Roman statues

2018-09-01 02:32:19 UTC  

@Phillip Wiglesworth - FL Indeed. That's true.

2018-09-01 02:32:24 UTC  

but it’s Silent Sam

2018-09-01 02:32:36 UTC  

or whoever

2018-09-01 02:32:54 UTC  

@Phillip Wiglesworth - FL Also, If I'm not mistaken, there are ways to get rid of flaws regardless.

2018-09-01 02:33:06 UTC  

They force labs to laser-engrave their lab diamonds at creation to essentially devalue them

2018-09-01 02:33:17 UTC  

yup

2018-09-01 02:34:03 UTC  

All the more reason to make more diamonds from bog rot. 😉
