Anonymous asked: The comments on that John Campbell Kickstarter rant are worthy of their own tumblr. Holy shit! "So, you gladly paid $75 to receive a small item with no practical purpose, but would MOST DEFINITELY NOT have paid $75 to help keep a fellow human alive and housed a little longer as they go through some difficult times, had you known at the start this is what it would be spent on?" Who the fuck are these people?
It’s all very weird and this is the first big Kickstarter where this has happened. You actually have people who got ripped off saying “god bless john campbell for taking a stand against the absurd evil social construct of being expected to give someone a product after being given money in exchange for that product”. Usually people with bizarre nonsensical arguments against the concept of money propose a barter system or something instead, but this is a whole new level. I want to see the ideal society Campbell’s supporters would create. Like you walk into a bakery and hand the cashier money for a loaf of bread and he says “actually my rent went up this month so to make ends meet I’m just taking everyone’s money and not giving them anything. No I’m not giving you your money back. I need this. do you want me to live on the streets? YOU THINK YOUR MONEY IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN ME NOT FREEZING TO DEATH. YOU PIECE OF SHIT. GET OUT OF MY STORE”
