People who know me know that I'm no friend of our current economic system. But I'm even less of a friend of it when it's operated sub-optimally, because corrupt, inefficient capitalism is much much worse for the poor than the ideal, well organized system.

The security guard here just asked if I played Pokemon. Because I always leave for lunch.

He did not think "Hey, this guy has friends" or "hey, this guy likes fine dining" or "hey, this guy is a stoner" (all of which are true).

He thought "Pokemon".
