  1. Notion Update: Some things that I have learned since posting this video.
    1) Thanks to the harsh grillings of Reddit user HunterIV4, he observed that I may or may not have Strawmanned Marxism and Etienne-Gabriel Morelly. I can see that, since this episode isn't "Death of Marxism" but rather "Death of the Emotional Negativity Capitalists have against Communism", So I purposefully give Communism the benefit of the doubt, and give them as much leeway as is reasonable. But Marx's quote, although is nowhere near the full Notion of "Marxism", is a good summary of the means to the end of Marxism. So if you kill the notion of the means by which the end is theoretically going to be attained, why look further into it? If the premises are flawed, wouldn't the end result also be flawed? But as for E.T., I do have to apologize…I took the interpretation of his 3 points too literally, which is not "a bad language expression", but was rather "a bad interpretation of an incomplete interpretation lost in translation."
    2) I contacted James Yunker after posting this video, and he replied fairly quickly! This is the summarized answer that he gave me: Primarily property income tax and taxes from work income is how the money would hypothetically go from the people to the BPO, and as for the money coming back from the market back to the people, retirement is the primary universal way to get it, a lottery of sorts could be instituted to get a steady income without working for the rest of your life (if you invest more money into the BPO from your income tax, the more likely you are to win the lottery), and emergency healthcare could also be used to withdraw this money early.
    3) I thought of another question that remains unanswered (for now) concerning Pragmatic Market Socialism "Isn't a potential consequence of PMS that more and more public businesses will become private in Wall-Street's eyes? Any ideas on a potential course of action to deter businesses from doing this move, and how to incentivize currently private businesses to become public?"
