In other words, what you're giving us here is an argument that commits the naturalistic or is/ought fallacy. But you said you had a degree in philosophy from an internationally respected university, right? Did they teach you about valid and invalid arguments?

I only have so much time in life. Never shoot down, only shoot up, that's what they say. I have no desire to argue against any of its "points". The whole thing is pathetic on its face. I made what I feel was the most useful and honest response to it by simply documenting my reaction. It's junk. That's it. No one who thinks even remotely like me could possibly think that "wow, that video made some really good points." Anyone who could is a total lost cause.
You don't see the maternalism? This hapless, helpless, half-retarded "farmer in green" can't figure anything out for himself, just keeps getting taken advantage of by reality, and he needs you, redbluepill, to swoop in and protect him from the mean nasty world, and from his own prodigious stupidity.
Poverty is a solved problem. It's done. There is no poverty in the United States. It is completely impossible to starve to death in the U.S., no matter how unfortunate, useless, or lazy you are. End of story. Hand-wringing and belly-aching about "how oh how do we stop poverty" is an exercise in amusing me.
