    The last part is correct. Harsher sentencing doesn't reduce crime, criminals gonna criminal. Most of them don't do it for fun, it's what they see as their best or only option. Severe punishments...

    I was merely trying to point out that the ones saying "don't fix what ain't fundamentally broken" are often on the wrong side of history. Progress would be stymied quite a bit if that was the...

    Is the fiat system optimal with its currency transactions, fees, exchange rates etc? Is it optimal they're governed by central banks? Is it optimal that governments can print money to boost their...

    I didn't say there's no inflation, I said printing money should increase it, yet it doesn't.

    See the curve on that page you linked? Does it show the effect of the FED printing money since ca 2008?...

    Macroeconomics is nuts (not the poker term). Printing money should increase inflation, yet we don't see that in the recent years in the US. And if there is inflation, it means it takes care of the...

    How do the tangible assets change the scenario in any way? A company may own some, but it's not like you get those as a shareholder if the company goes bust. The value of the tangible assets is...

    How exactly, on a fundamental/theoretical level, is investing in crypto different than investing in stocks?

    I'll refrain from speaking for everyone else, but personally I've been to London maybe ~20 times, and don't think I've ever seen Buckingham Palace up close. Like I'm sure there are people that are...

    Just to exclude the obvious, you aren't putting on your shoes or picking up your keys or anything similar in this scenario? How punctual are your walks?

    Are you sure? For sure there's evidence against the opposite, that is incest causing issues, but is there proof for as wide a pool as possible being beneficial? I think it's conceivable anything...

    Just to reiterate, not too long ago masturbation (especially female) would have been on that same list of suspicious/dangerous/ungodly behaviors that need to be beaten out. The only reason I'm...

    I'm not a fan of thought crimes, and I don't think it should be anyone's business how people get off, as long as they're not hurting anyone. I'd need to see a pretty strong causal link between...

    Why on earth would you want that? What if after that none of the parties could alone hold a majority and your democracy would break down?

    So your argument essentially is that because there are more than 2 differing opinions represented, it isn't a true democracy. Bro, your country is in need of new major parties just as badly as the US.

    Just one more point, can't be arsed to fix the rest of your mistakes. The number of MEPs per member state is based on population, not wealth. The smaller the population, the more MEPs per capita they...
