Complaint is the Language of Imbeciles


Anyone can complain. Anyone can criticize. How many people can explain the incentives that cause people to act in a way that they do, that you disagree with?

Complaints about people. Complaints about events. complaints about society, complaints about civilization. complaints about man.

Complaints are merely statements of incompetence.

Competence is demonstrated by an explanation of the incentives that produce behaviors, and the institutional methods by which counter-incentives can be created that will produce preferred behaviors. And high competence is demonstrated by explanation of a possible method of doing so.
