Message from Alex Kolchak - NY in Nice Respectable People Group #general
However, I think that most people will ultimately find the last two premises non-controversial once you unpack their base assumptions.
@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.
Also, aren't diamonds found near or in coal beds?
I'm fairly certain that they are one of the most common gemstones on Earth. (being made of carbon)
@Phillip Wiglesworth - FL However, that being stated, an item's value is not influenced by its rarity. It's influenced by supply/demand.
The supply is deliberately limited. Again...part of the scam effectuated by a particular group of people.
@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.
we need a nice teal gemstone that doesn’t come from an African warzone
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.
apatite is a nice teal color
reactionary wedding rings when
Guys. Let's get back to discussing bird watching. 😉
doves r best birbs
Haven’t been on discord in a minute with school
because they’re huhwite
Do we have any plan to combat the tearing down of statues?
How about we just build a bunch of them?
Let's have statues for days.
Novo Terracotta Army when?
actually, what if we came out with posters featuring the historical figure whose statue was torn down?
@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.
As soon as they tear one down, we just build Mt. Rushmore in its place.
and then put them up in the town where it happened
sort of like the posters with Roman statues
but it’s Silent Sam
@Phillip Wiglesworth - FL Also, If I'm not mistaken, there are ways to get rid of flaws regardless.
They force labs to laser-engrave their lab diamonds at creation to essentially devalue them
All the more reason to make more diamonds from bog rot. 😉
