diamonds are bad and their only value comes from blood and false scarcity

my dad is a geologist and ingrained this in me from day fuckin one

@pbandkate They have scientific uses but they're just fuckin' minerals. Fuck DeBeers.

@breakfastgolem oh sure, but there’s like literally zero real reason for them to be so expensive. diamonds are, relatively, very common.

@pbandkate I want them to be everywhere. Windows made out of 'em. Make diamonds as common and as utilitarian as glass or bricks.


@breakfastgolem now that’s some champagne socialism i can get behind

@pbandkate @breakfastgolem this is a Neal Stephenson novel, except with less socialism and more pollution and kidnapping
