Comments. We all have them. But only some of them are worthy of being the best of the best. And if you want to be the best—well—you have to work hard at it. Here’s some of this week’s best comments as selected by our Weekend Editor.
Tom Walker: While Im all for employees being paid what their worth… but I would have to say what’s missing from this idea is Risk. If Im going to share the upsides with people they must also share the downsides as well. If the company does well everyone gets a nice big bonus, if they do bad they must help cover the losses
Akshat Singh: Risk does not justify exploitation. And a person living a precarious life is already at more risk than anyone who has enough capital to risk it somewhere. Also, if employers will not be paid their worth, they will have less and less “Capital” to even risk anywhere.
Janet Roberta Mahoney: Even credit cards & store rewards cards are watching you. Recently bought coke & bubble wrap with a store rewards card and got home to an email “based on your recent purchase we recommend this soda stream machine for $80” and then was bombarded with ads for bubble wrap from Amazon. I’m afraid my death notice will read “We don’t know much about her but she had a sweet tooth and she wrapped her packages really well”.
Kevin Oliver: Crime would drop, police could focus on more important crime, prisons would be less populated. People wouldn’t be demonized for choosing to partake in recreational drugs, lowers the stigma of medical drug users. Basically, all good things, i.e. Portugal
Denise Thompson: YES! Finally. Now all the birth control, women’s issues, etc. can be treated with the respect denied them for so long. If this comes to pass, the world will change in an instant.
Julian Ward: In the future there is a strong chance that we cure religion. We won’t need a big imaginary hope friend in the sky when we have life extension and singularity mergers.
