This is proof that Google records our voice and then recommends these videos. I was saying, "I AM A PIRATE," out loud.

Very fascinating, one can say the modern pirates are drug traders in a way, their customers are different though but in regards to the relationship with the government’s laws it remains similar.

So pirates were the original Communists? Workers (pirates) owning the means of production (the ship) together, cutting out the Bourgeois (monarchs and nobles) exploitation of labour?

quite brilliant way of explaining the concept of Tricky illegality of using forceful merchantability of the endeavor of acquiring illicit goods. Also 'Whats genetics" got me giggling like mad!

Or maybe they can just pay a qualified surgeon more. I figure an ordinary surgeon is already well paid so a pirate surgeon should naturally make a lot more to make up for the additional risk. Heck, they even risk making less money than what they would otherwise make. What if the crew doesn't acquire a whole lot of loot or acquires none at all? You better double their share of the reward. Plus surgeons are pretty smart, they probably want to see records of your past success before signing up and chances are they will probably read the contract agreement to see if it's to their liking.

Wait so does this sort if make pirates communists? They don’t believe in private property (they trespass it all the time), they share the profits among the people and the leaders are chosen by the people and are for the people because they can be replaced at any time right? Pirates are the real comrades bro

You know, I am glad to see your prediction wasn't entirely right. Sure the Captains video is more liked and watched, but not by much. Because this video is just such a great companion video to the Captain video.

The economy diagram on 4:18 is wrong. P1 should correspond to Q1 while in your diagram it corresponds with Q2. Same goes for P2 and Q1.

The concept of "personality matrix" is an intriguing topic - any good books or authors on that? I've come across it in Games People play, Celestine Prophecy, Choice Theory and DiSC, though seems like it is ripe for research

'which genetics?' 'sorry, after the nazis, eugenics and pseudo-scientific production and use of genetics correlated to race, research in this field will be clogged forever, so i can't give you an answer but the biological paradigma of genetics+environment = you, though most people like to slide past the genetics part, for the reasons above'. That would be tooo long, 'no matter' is much more incisive.
