Default Re: The Scarcity Myth

I see this materialist myth spouted all the time -- all the time -- in any discussion of weight and body image. This post effectively indicates the absurdity of the premise. Men do not calculate their attraction on the basis of "material conditions." The attraction to beauty is an essential, timeless impulse.

In fact, the blatant error in ascribing a materialist basis to something that does not originate materialistically points to the fundamental flaw in all Marxist "reasoning" -- its completely misunderstanding and distortion of human nature.
