yeh, i wander how correct the list is,as i say in 1 week theres a new programm on TV about "poor"dutch people, they say 1 million are living in poverty, BUT i have because of problems (physical chronical leg injurys+no school education,some mental stuff in my head etc.)living on "UB40 ehh coverment payment-i cant find the correct translation)but on the lowest income and i have NO debt,never have and can buy food and have some left to buy other stuff,and ones a year we get"vacation money-they call it"and i use that to buy supplements/medicine/incence etc.stuf i need true the year(and lay whats left away for emergency), so imo the people who are living in poverty done this themself, mostly they have a smartphone with montly subscribtion,a car or they smoke/and drink etc., maybe in a rare situations you can get into trouble, but for everything there is HELP here, you can even get into a programm- when you have to much debt you cant pay-then they clear your debts and you have to live on 70 euro a week for 3 years,but after that your free of thuosands euro of debt you had, so i really like to see these new TV show, because maybe im wrong, but i bet im not

if poor, get to work. shouldn't need loans

end fed reserve, nationalize it, put out low interest loans for those who apply with a plan and deserve it

Capitalism cannot exist without socialism.

Taxes that pay the government and police and military that enforce the capitalism are entirely socialist. They claim to "protect" you but won't protect your health or education or rights to shelter, food, and work while civilized countries would.

Socialism cannot exist without capitalism on some level, whether it's the individual level, business level, community level, or state level.

More balanced countries are more stable and happier, but they are far from fair and "equal".

All governments are authoritarian to some degrees and feature socialist and capitalist elements to some degrees.

Authoritarianism is the result of many political systems... I can point to many historical examples of authoritarian governments that aren't socialist. That's all I'm saying.

You gotta wonder why a guy would think a bunch of stabs are more efficient than simply slitting their throat. Must have anger issues.

I think that public banking is a good thing and it is possibly one of the reasons why the Spanish Empire collapsed while its competing European neighbours expanded all across the world.

Niall Ferguson's "The Ascent of Money" comes to mind.

Socialism doesn't "lead to" authoritarianism. Authoritarianism is embedded in Socialism's implementation, and explicitly its end goal.

If you're implying "but Capitalism blah blah Imperialism blah blah" then fuck you. Free enterprise is entirely voluntary from top to bottom in the context of a Libertarian society. No force is required to cause any individual to do what serves their own best interest, assuming they own their own bodies and the liberty I believe all humans deserve.

Don't ever assume that America is a Capitalist country. The actions of our government are hostile to Capitalism, Free Enterprise, and Individual Liberty. I'm eternally frustrated by the lack of discussion on how to fix that without killing millions of people.

I'd like to nitpick about the CSS. Could you add this code:

#header-img-a {
  display: block;
  overflow-x: hidden;
  width: 100%;
}
#header-img {
  float: right;
}

And then, if you prefer it, crop the image on the right and re-upload it.

Vaccination Industry:

  • Vaccines did not end the plague of diseases. Public sanitation was the solution, and it was implemented before vaccines for most diseases were invented.
  • Vaccines are not effective in eliminating transmission. Vaccinated people can carry diseases without showing symptoms.
  • Vaccines are not safe, or harmless. Vaccines activate the epigenome, which is the system that governs which genes are activated, etc. We do not understand this system, and there are serious unforeseen consequences.
  • The aluminum adjuvant is a dangerous compound and stays in the brain of young developing children.
  • Thimerosal (mercury compound) in vaccines is toxic. This mercury does not leave the body. It collects in the brain of the patient.
  • As many as 30 million Americans were infected with a cancer causing virus called SV-40 during the polio vaccinations during the 60's. This is the root cause of the modern cancer epidemic. They should be working on a SV-40 vaccine, however this is being curiously ignored.
  • AIDS was introduced into the human population through the vaccination programs (Merck).

No; I checked and #23 isn't, at time of writing, closed.

I'd have tried to implement it, but, if my Invidious patch was anything to go by, I don't think I'm really fit to delve into the backend code at the moment. I understand not nearly enough for that.

So, you agree with the overwhelming majority of the Nazi philosophy?

Well, it depends on what you mean by "the Nazi philosophy". If you mean "the complete set of philosophies held by the Nazi Party" then obviously I agree with lots of it. (That definition of "the Nazi philosophy" includes most of the groundwork philosophy and moral systems of Western Europe.) But if you mean "the set of philosophies held by the Nazi Party but not their contemporary political opponents" then no; most of the Nazi-specific philosophy is abhorrent according to my values.

Also, in case you were wondering, I do not support eugenics. The basic idea is sound, but the facts that individual humans are involved and that somebody else is going to be dictating what's considered desirable outweigh any benefit that might come of it. (And no, even if I were that "somebody else" I'd still consider it problematic. I've got some vague ideas for how it could work, but they're currently too flawed to voice (as in, even I can see obvious ways that an implementation would doom society), and even at this stage they barely resemble the traditional ideas of eugenics.)


You said that you supported abortion, until you learnt that the eugenics crowd supported it. Then you stopped supporting it as much. I'm simply asking why this affected your beliefs about abortion, when it hasn't affected your beliefs about the benefits of eating or not killing (adult) people.

Take the Nazi example. "Killing people is bad" is one of the morals I learnt in early childhood. For some reason (I haven't taken the time to re-evaluate all of my fundamental beliefs just yet because I'm not really making any important decisions just now and I'm kind of busy), I think that killing people who would otherwise do really bad stuff (simplified: bad people) is worse than killing people who wouldn't (simplified: innocent people). (I still think that killing "bad people" is bad, though.) Because the Holocaust resulted in the deaths of many, many innocent people, I think that the Holocaust was bad.

I'm fairly confident that I would come to the conclusion that genocide was bad even if I had never learnt of the Nazi Party or the events surrounding either World War.

 

So, the question remains. Why does the opinion of eugenicists change your beliefs on abortion?

I agree, but socialism is far from the only type of political system that leads to authoritarianism.

Can the continuous spectrum can also come from a liquid?

The same is with the background radiation. It is supposed to come from hydrogen plasma, but the spectrum continuous (not gas/plasma).

[Astronomy]

  • Stars are formed from condensed matter (liquid or solid). Only condensed matter with a lattice structure can emit a continuous spectrum.
  • Stars do not behave as gas clouds. Gasses cannot emit a continuous spectrum.
  • Many astronomical equations violate the laws of thermodynamics (intensive vs. extensive properties). They are not physically plausible.

The basics of astronomy are a complete mess. 90% of astronomy classes still teach that the sun is a gas cloud, which is physically impossible. This science is in need of a thorough fundamental reexamination.
