In the book "Waldon 2" by B.F. Skinner, there is a commune that gives labor credits for time worked. The more unpleasant the task, the more labor credits per hour.

Handloading gets unpleasant when the tasks feel repetitive.
I combine watching TV on my computer with high volume handloading.
If I have to size 1,000 cases, I am going to be watching TV while I do it.

But if I am doing 10 cartridges with incremental powder charges, I do that in the reloading room.

What does it all mean?
Rounds per hour does not matter if it is pleasant and combined with something you were going to do anyway.

The word 'forum" does not mean "not criticizing books."
"Ad hominem fallacy" is not the same as point by point criticism of books. If you bought the book, and believe it all, it may FEEL like an ad hominem attack, but you might strive to accept other points of view may exist.
Are we a nation of competing ideas, or a nation of forced conformity of thought?
