I thought the original purpose of the EK was to save in areas where the start menu could not be opened. Then people eventually realized that if you can't open the start menu you probably shouldn't be saving there.

There really isn't a good way to determine why your game froze. Try the process again.
Also, Arceus cannot currently be found in the void. Some people think that it is impossible, I think that everything is possible with glitches given enough time. Regardless, I wouldn't get my hopes up anytime soon.
Yea, all of the older YouTube videos tell you to use the explorer kit because that used to be the preferred way. I ended up in the same boat you're in when I first started tweaking, but I didn't have music.
That was the end of my save file. Hopefully your adventures end better.
I would find my knowledge to be very useless and that the economy is far less organized and tidy than my classes theorize.
Of course not, no science can predict the outcome of any situation with 100% accuracy. It is nice to have a basic understanding of how an economy works, though. There are people out there who legitly think that printing more money is the solution to our problems; they can't grasp the idea of scarcity. I'm not saying that Econ classes teach the key to understanding the universe, but at least they give us some ideas of what might work vs. what definitely will not.
I've come to respect engineers. At least they can all agree how to generally build a sturdy fucking bridge. Economists can't even agree as to whether government spending aids the economy.
Well, Economics is a younger science than Physics, so there are many more unknowns. Also, depending on the bridge and the engineers, I wouldn't be surprised to see some heated debates about that too.
It's the idea that we are forced to work in order to survive, no different than any slave would be.
When have people ever been able to survive without some kind of work? Unfortunately, food does not just fall from the sky. You can either to get it yourself, or make some money and pay someone else to do it for you. Either way, you have done work to survive.
That's the saddest thing I've read or heard in a few months. And I don't mean sad in the same way as being an involuntary virgin at age 40. I mean, puppy with 3 injured legs trying to walk, and then breaking his 4th, sad.
I don't know, involuntary virgin at age 40 is pretty fucking sad.
Yes, ignorance is another problem. So many Americans want things changed, yet they don't know what to change because they have no idea how an economy (or our government, for that matter) works. The real question is how do we fix this? Economics classes are taught in most high schools, but so few students care. They'd rather complain about our problems rather than learn to solve them. You can make someone sit in a desk and listen until they turn 18, but unless they really care, they aren't going to learn anything. The end result is a population that believes that high government spending and low taxes are sustainable. It's fantasy that needs to be corrected, otherwise nothing will ever be fixed.
Just the thought of having to work so hard to earn the fabrication/imagination of others, and spend my entire life doing so, seems a form of slavery. Since they're the ones controlling currency, they pay you just enough - and make wages for the middle class just enough - to keep you as a cog in their system right where they want you.
But money really isn't just a "fabrication." Yes, it is true that the bills we use to pay for good and services only have value because the government says they have value, but that's really all it takes. You go to work. You get money. You spend that money. You get goods and services. So really, you aren't working for money, you are working for the things you use that money to get. Paper money is a hell of a lot more convenient than trading pigs for sheep. And as far as paying use "just enough," goes, that's called supply and demand. We work for "just enough" because if they don't someone else will, and then we won't have anything.
I also noted how the government doesn't only ignore this but actively supports it.
What did you want them to do?
But more than anything, I pointed out that it's ludicrous how we can even have a deficit of something that is imaginary.
Money has value because we all agree that it has value. When the government takes more stuff than they have money to pay for, we have a deficit.
Because since money only ever means anything if we decide it does - then we decide what that should mean.
So you want everyone to collectively change what money represents? What do you mean?
Another tangential point I may or may not have added in the first draft was that the US is not a nation lacking natural resources like, say, the deserts of Saudi Arabia. We do have plenty of goods and services (which, when it comes down to it, is where money really matters/materializes out of the abstract) - so if we are imagining that there is a deficit somewhere i have to wonder whether it is real or a collective illusion (or perhaps an instilled illusion)..
You're right, our problem isn't natural resources. Our problem is cheap labor. People here think they're entitled to things they're not. $7.25 an hour minimum wage? That's all fine and dandy until the people in China decide to work for far less, so much less that it is cheaper to ship labor across the ocean that to produce goods here. Ultimately, the American people are greedy, and until they get over that our economy isn't going to get better.
I've heard a few times that 1% of the population controls 40% of the nation's wealth - compared to 20% a few decades ago, which is still massive. wtf is that?! ...why does any person need so much cash?
Nobody needs that much cash, its all supply and demand. We gave that 1% all of that money when we decided to buy stuff from them or the companies that hired them to do their jobs. Don't like it? Fine, stop buying things from large corporations. Reduce the demand for those people and they will make less.
Basically, the Neoliberalism philosophy has given birth to an economy where we are all treated as pawns in the chess game of a small elite group of corporations which manage large chains of stores and banks -- and by extension also are the ones that hand out jobs -- so that our standard of living is designed by the plan of these corporations... and they use that to create a middle class that by design stays within a range of income suited for their corporation's overall growth needs -- while reeling in loads of money up to the top. A type of slavery - keeping people in a position where they can support them, when in reality they have more than enough money to fix our economic issues if they wanted to.
That's the way it works. Some end up on top, others on the bottom. This isn't a conspiracy. Everything is based on supply and demand. We control the economy, and we control our government. The fact that we are unhappy just means that we have been doing it wrong.
