Awkward to be around, socially... he was good at stabbing but I think it loses something when you have a conversation first.

Where on earth are you getting the idea that Reacher Gilt was an objectivist/libertarian? That's loving ridiculous. He was a parody of the Enron / Worldcom folks and other corporate "pirates." Hence the parrot that kept sqauwking out "twelve and a half percent," the historical rate of usury.

Adam Smith's central point in brazilian wax porn video Wealth of Nations was that the wealth of nations did not stem from gold (according to the mercantilist theories of the time) but from productive labor. Marx's work built on that theory, but it wasn't what Marx was about. vanessa hudgins naked pictures Pratchett's channelling Adam Smith in this book, not Marx. Seriously. Marx wouldn't exactly be a fan of machine-golem slave labor, think about it.

Neither Going Postal nor Making Money have anything to do with Objectivism or Libertarianism, except insofar as some libertarians are foolish enough to espouse the gold standard. Admittedly that's more political than Pratchett usually gets (the only other real example I can think of is the Gonne) but none of his books are Bioshock and you're forcing your own reading onto the text if you think they are.

Sorry, but the political philosophy he's playing with in Making Money is clearly Adam Smith's. The whole thing is a parody and examination of Industrial Revolution capitalism, it's Smith from beginning to end.

Do you know what the labor theory of value is? Like I said before -- it's extremely loving obvious that Pratchett is referring to Adam Smith here, not Marx.

quote:

The judicious operations of banking, by substituting paper in the room of a great part of this gold and silver, enables the country to convert a great part of this dead stock into active and productive stock.
The Wealth of Nations, Book II, Chapter II


quote:

The real price of everything, what everything really costs to the man who wants to acquire it, is the toil and trouble of acquiring it. What everything is really worth to the man who has acquired it, and who wants to dispose of it or exchange it for something else, is the toil and trouble which it can save to himself, and which it can impose upon other people. What is bought with money or with goods is purchased by labour as much as what we acquire by the toil of our own body. That money or those goods indeed save us this toil. They contain the value of a certain quantity of labour which we exchange for what is supposed at the time to contain the value of an equal quantity. Labour was the first price, the original purchase-money that was paid for all things. It was not by gold or by silver, but by labour, that all the wealth of the world was originally purchased; and its value, to those who possess it, and who want to exchange it for some new productions, is precisely equal to the quantity of labour which it can enable them to purchase or command.

Historically prior to Adam Smith, the wealth of nations was measured by gold stockpiles (to oversimplify a little). This philosophy was referred to as play free sex videos. Adam Smith's revolutionary point was that this wasn't true; wealth derived from productive labor, not gold stockpiles.

Pratchett mocks this even as far back as adult free sex tv The Color of Magic, when the Patrician asks Rincewind what would happen if everyone in Ankh-Morpork had gold, and Rincewind ignorantly replies "uh, we'd all be rich?"

The politics are generally very conventional and mainstream; he doesn't get controversial, and he doesn't get into political theory. He'll pick issues here and there, like women in the military or gun control, but he isn't a theorist and he doesn't address political theory in his writing the way that someone like, say, China Mieville or Heinlein does. Or, for that matter, Ayn Rand. Yes, the books get political, but they aren't Bioshock.

That's a good insight, you're right, it does have that feel. I think it's because the tone is different since they're children's books, and the action all takes place in a completely new and un-crazy part of the Disc (i.e., a big open field without distinguishing characteristics, not Ankh-Morpork and not Lancre).

Yeah, I'm not sure the organizers knew what they were getting into. He was supposed to be signing from 1-2 PM. They had to separate the Pratchett line into multiple lines because it kept getting out into the pedestrian area.

I was kind of disappointed because at a normal signing you can talk to him for a bit while he signs, and he'll add a custom dedication. This time they were hustling people through as fast as possible -- hand over the book, he scrawls a signature, get out.

As is he's a run of the mill con man without any special relation to the people you think he's lampooning.


Don't mean at all to be suggesting that multiple readings aren't possible. They are. I just think Nomenklatura's reading of Going Postal as a discworld version of Bioshock is invalid and incorrect, because, as Ferrinus points out, Gilt just doesn't act remotely like an Ayn Rand character. Everything that Nomenklatura points out as "omg ayn rand" is better explained by "corporate pirate," and the "corporate pirate" also explains other things that the Ayn Rand reading doesn't, like the parrot. On top of that, there are elements that would be necessary in an Ayn Rand parody -- like Gilt building the clacks himself then dynamiting it or something -- that are simply absent from the book. It's not that other readings aren't possible, it's that there's not enough "there" there to support his reading.

I'll grant the "who is Reacher Gilt" as a possible oblique Rand reference, but there's still not enough there to read Postal as an attack on Objectivism -- it's just an attack on con men.

Actually, the Discworld has become one of the most brilliant and most comprehensive commentaries on modern society out there. up skirt porn videos That's why it's popular; He's brilliant, and it's brilliant, because it reminds people of the world they live in, while at the same time being drawn in broad enough strokes that everybody can get it.

I didn't say that he didn't comment on politics. I said he wasn't an ideologue. These are different things. It's possible to hold a wide variety of political views without being a doctrinaire (Marxist, Objectivist, whatever). And Pratchett isn't -- his views come across pretty clearly as mainstream-british-left-liberal, which is fine, but he's not an ideologue and his works aren't ideological. On the contrary, they're pretty balanced, which is part of why they have such widespread appeal. Politically, they're mainstream, and they never really get that controversial politically.

An all assassin book would be really nice. But if you want a real assassin porn videos psp download (not pteppic, who doesn't have the heart to kill a person), they have to kill innocent (well, technically) people in cold blood and from how I understand Pratchett, he doesn't do that with the protagonists.
It would really rock to have some kind of anti-hero.

What is the name of the female assassin Vimes meets at the beginning of Thud? Written well, she'd be a good character for a book about the guild of assassins. In fact, if we consider his theme of modernization, she could be a character who experiences from within a kind of change in the Guild from a school which provides an excellent and well-rounded education and training to murder people into a school which simply provides a well-rounded education.

A driving force could be something whereby the Guild becomes aware that most students do not practice their trade, and that the recent Guild practice of not accepting contracts (first Vetinari, then Vimes) is detrimental to their stated purpose - that is, to ensure that the stock and trade of murder is left to professionals who will render unto their clients with dignity, grace, and discretion. It is detrimental for the simple reason that any person who wishes to see anyone on the 'Not Accepting Contracts' list will not simply give up, they will simply seek alternative methods of inhumation.

That's how we get -ing characters who are -ing irritating and not -ing funny, because they get -ing hired by people too -ing determined to see Vetinari in the -ing ground to just give up because the -ing Assassins said no.



Oh, and also: Nomeklatura, Calenth is right. Calenth, Nomenklatura is right. The beauty of Pratchett's work is that there are many layers of meaning hidden in everything. Even some of the puns have multiple meanings. For examples of such puns, see also Dragon King of Arms and his poisson lamp. Pratchett is so loving cheeky about his future plotlines that he hints about them several books in advance, and when there's a mystery, he normally gives you the answer in the first chapter, but it takes the entire novel for the answer to suddenly come together and make sense. Honestly, look at Jingo. An island rises from the water, artificially inducing an international crisis? And then the island sinks back to the bottom of the ocean, leaving the only man who knew the secret as the winner in the whole affair?

The theft of the Rascal is the most important piece of information given to us in Thud!


Also, I find it amusing that the principle driving force behind Vetinari's Undertaking and the modernization of Ankh-Morpork is a perpetual motion device.
