No, it depends on what you mean when you claim our police are "socialist".

Police and firemen and roads are paid by taxes and neither are not optional. That is socialism in action. Every country has some socialism.

Sounds to me like you are making the bullshit commie assertion that "we already have socialism and people should just accept it".

Sounds to me like you should check your hearing.

We already do have socialism AND capitalism and people should just BALANCE it.

To the degree that we do have socialism we have corruption.

The same can be said for capitalism. "To the degree that we do have capitalism we have corruption."

Same shit, other side of the coin. Hegelian dialectics man.

Our rulers don't care for the poor, they create more of them to justify their own will to power.

Doesn't matter which "side of the aisle" you're pointing to. They're both corrupt ideologies and the more power they get the more they merge into plain old totalitarianism. The less power they get the more they simply become anarchism. As I've said, I'm for anarcho-minarchism.

Sounds to me like "your individual liberty must be constrained". I'm not going to accept that.

I want maximum liberty all around but enough minimal government to keep harmful crooks in check, whether individuals or gangs or collectivists.

I agree. I'm for trading rare resources and food, but not goods or services. If it's common and can be manufactured, then IMO it should be manufactured in many places regionally around the world, not just in one city in China. Decentralized production would support regions and save communities, political power, energy, and money, not to mention peace, lives, and the environment with regions caring more for their own.

United States instead of one superstate

Huh? The War Of Northern Aggression proved it was meant to be a superstate and that the states were not individual nor free but united under a monopoly on governance.

There were 3 Flavian Caesars. Grandfather, father, and son.

According to Joseph Atwill's "Caesar's Messiah" book and documentary, they manufactured the Christianity religions with Jewish leaders to herd the people into subservience and the messiah prophecy was to prop up the Flavian Caesar as the new demi-god returned.

"Render unto Caesar what is Caesar's" serves his interests.

"Turn the other cheek" serves his interests by having a passive populace.

Maybe it's a micro-rant in under 300 characters, but I think of it more of a review.

I don't know what's incoherent about it.

[ I post this for educational purposes. I like some John Mark ideas. I don't like this video. I don't think his "strength" is effective resistance.

That seems clear enough.

Yes war is coming.

In many ways this is self evident.

Strength is your real identity. Is he a psyop or legit? ]

"John Mark" is a fake alias / stage name so this guy is anonymous.

Is that really demonstrating any strength of convictions?

Seems more like hiding behind his mask / helmet.

I would use them more for sure. I often forget about these options.

SaidIt is already way less than other forums.

I'd rather have the options and if people want to create minimalist CSS themes I'd be happy to support them and even help. Like the day/night theme I'd love to see a more/less thing.

Sometimes less is more. Sometimes more is more.

Size and placement matters.

I love it.

I'd love to see more options too (ie, inversed options: oldest, coldest, etc, perhaps just indicated with ↑ ↓ arrows).

Is it worth reconsidering the titles?

So this minarchist government, where will it derive its authority, justice, and funding? That's socialism in action.

Only a fool volunteers to be a slave when liberty is still possible.

I agree. In theory.

Let's say we press the reset button. All government is deleted with some decree that there is nothing but anarchism with no rulers.

Guess what's going to happen.

Groups will form. Gangs will form. Communities will form borders and patrol within and without. Stupid people will want to follow charismatic leaders. Power and "authority" and hierarchy will rise from the ashes regardless.

Half of everyone is stupider than average and most of the smarter ones are REALLY close to average - so most folks are WAY stupider than any of us we really want.

Depends what you mean "Socialist".

Capitalism needs some balance. Democrats are not that, nor are their brainwashed SJWs. Serving the coporatocracy/technocracy (NeoCons/Globalists/Zionists/Freemasons/NWO), they are merely pawns sheep herding the left-leaning masses into their delusional Hegelian dialectic.

Those "socialists" can go to hell for all I care.

Everything else you wrote is bullshit commie propaganda, so I'm not investing any time to rebut it.

Because you can't.

You answered it yourself. Only a retarded anarchist would want a big state.

Minarchism is best with capitalism and socialism in balance and an abundance of transparency and open justice. How that will happen is anyone's guess. All else is variations of tyranny.

How about if they claim you said something illegal, whether you did or not?

How about when they pass a law that makes your past illegal and they have it all recorded?

You've visited SaidIt in the past, a known site for commies and terrorists.

If it's all top secret for them and transparent for us they have all the power and no need to justify and we have no tools to refute.

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.
