    I haven't proposed a single solution, and you're going on and on about how bad all the solutions are.

    So what?

    We agree there's a problem, but you're just... "Oh, well... let it all burn and...

  3. I think neither can do all that it needs to do on...

    I think neither can do all that it needs to do on economies of the scales we have today. It takes a mixture of both, IMO.

    Capitalism is great for incentivizing innovation and rewarding personal...

    The nice thing is that you're the only mostly right-wing thinker I know who actually makes decent arguments and has a sense of bigger picture stuff than the shit-slinging that happens in the media.

    I'm not envious. I have more privilege than most.

    Focus on the Marie Antoinette metaphor, but on the scale of the world instead of one nation.

    That's what I'm afraid of. And that's my only...
  6. I'm saying that what is happening cannot go on. ...

    I'm saying that what is happening cannot go on. It is not a net good for society to have its wealth is only a few hands. The distance between the top and the bottom needs to be addressed as not an...
  7. That's basically what I'm saying is the case now....

    That's basically what I'm saying is the case now. The social norms we have created allow for unethical acquisition of wealth.

    It's immoral for a company to pay some of its employees many...

    I don't think anyone here is arguing that wealthy people who have done crimes to get their wealth should probably not be allowed to keep their wealth.

    Rather, you seem to be arguing that if...

    The problem with this entire issue is that everyone's right, here.

    It's not fair to take people's legitimately earned wealth and just give it to someone else, just 'cause.

    It's not fair that...

    As someone who went through the gifted program throughout Jr. high and high school, here's my take:

    The point of school is to educate someone. In order to educate someone, you need to expose them...

    Seems like puritanical anti-sexuality nonsense, really.

    I didn't see anything in the article that said the dissertation was poorly written or that the 3 month investigation was irrelevant to the...

    He got me again.
    I've listened to this like 50 times in the past week.

    I mean... yes, we should be using tax dollars to invest in education. That's the future skillsets of our future citizens that we're investing in. We're investing in ourselves and our future when we...

    So, ong. If what is existing isn't fair. And what we propose isn't fair... and nothing is fair.

    Then can't we just do the unfair thing that reduces human hardships?
  15. The fallacy that working hard and making good...

    The fallacy that working hard and making good life choices is all you need to not be poor is so clearly, obviously, undeniably mad that any assertion otherwise can only be taken as either lunacy,...

    I appreciate that these are probably rhetorical questions.

    I appreciate that it doesn't feel like there is a "right" answer to those questions.

    My concern is that the rampant runaway...

    Totally agreed.
    Where the mere notion of competition is problematic (like with roads), we recognize that the gov't has responsibility to step in, to prevent a private monopoly.

    It's just...

    But when YOU do it, it's inhumane injustice and a violation of human rights.
    When the US does it, it's pure freedom, baby.


    I did not know that.

    I don't really hear the word nonce in the US. ...
  19. Nah, haven't you heard? When the US invades,...

    Nah, haven't you heard? When the US invades, it's to BRING the freedom.
    You see... the US is the only place on Earth with freedom. And other people don't even know how bad they have it, not being...

    I guess the point to me is that Ukraine is able to make advances at all.

    Until February/March, we all thought that Russia's military was 2nd only to the US.

    Then we watch the Russian invasion...

    Another issue with weather forecasting is that they're forecasting for a wide area, not just their back garden.
    It may rain on half of the city, but not the whole thing. A weatherman may call that...

    Ong's got a point, but downplaying that Ukraine is making progress is weird.

    Still nice advances for Ukraine over the past days. Looks like various fronts of the Russian push are falling apart. Though they could be pulling back to regroup... that's not as likely. Russia...
  25. Nice.
