Accidently found this blog postG3head's Blog while looking for references to an Omaha World Herald article. In it this self-styled generic geek makes reference to some sort of communist "gift economy". I didn't take the time to check out the geek's profile or read enough of his blog to get an idea of which line of geek ideology he follows. But I couldn't help clicking on the gift economy link. It leads to a Wikipedia definition of gift economy. A gift economy is to any real economy as a Dutch treat is to any real treat.
Upon reading the rest of Mr. G3head's post I see he may have been under the influence of paint fumes at the time. Gift economy, indeed! The Wiki sayeth, "gift economies can co-exist with planned economies, market economies and barter economies." How about, "Screw you, Jack. I've got mine, and if you don't watch it, I'll have yours, too." Can the candy asses in the gift economy co-exist with this one? Commies are invariably intolerant bastards.
