What do you think of abortion?
User avatar #52639 to #52631 - Shiny (11/29/2013) [-]
Abortion is wrong because it doesn't give fetuses a chance to defend themselves. The only ethical choice is a postpartum duel at ten paces.

User avatar #52632 to #52631 - pebar (11/28/2013) [-]
The whole debate boils down to whether or not a fetus is a person.
If it is then it has the negative right to life and the government has a duty to stop anyone from taking that life away.
If it's not a person then it's no one else's business.

Even if its technically classified as living, i really still don't mind abortion.
1. We're pretty cool with the killing other millions and billions of species to eat just as am I
2. Its mooching fully of the parent, the living thing is fully attached to the parent and lives of it in every way, i don't see why she doesn't have the right to let it stop keep feeding off her
3. Illegal abortion kills tens of thousands (if not hundreds) of women per year.
4. Just what we need, a child not really loved by his parents because he was "forced" born
5. Your mom and many other reasons but these are just some general one's

Let them go back to a civilized white first world country. Heck I would welcome them in the US to combat the Hispanic invaders.

The leftists and the progressives are to blame for the current war on our race. White traitors high and their on social justice bullshit that they allow other races to attack us freely, and prevent us from uniting to defend our homes because they think being white is shameful. Fuck them, deport all leftists into the countries of the hispanics and the blacks. Let them live with them and away from us. Death to all traitors.

Not necessarily lack of law enforcement.

High police presence can lead to an increased interception of crimes, and therefore crime rates appear higher in heavily policed areas. That's always a possibility.

Milton Friedman - Poverty and Equality Alright then, how 'bout this one?
#52659 to #52652 - oxan (11/29/2013) [-]
First time watching this.

>States don't have responsibilities
Nothing inherent, but as the state is a social construct, we can apply to it whatever attributes we so wish.

>Comparison to the Soviet Union
He seems to forget that the cost of living in the USSR was much, much, much lower than the cost in the United States. There was something like 1% of people in the USSR living in poverty, which is nothing compared to capitalist states.

Top lel, his statement about equality and liberty. Fact is, socialist states were actually more equal than his libertarian fantasy would ever be. That was determined by the gini index. In regards to liberty... pic related.

Anyway, the rest of what the guy had to say was empty assertions and didn't even come close to proving that capitalism is more efficient at alleviating poverty than socialism, as the video description declares.
User avatar #52660 to #52659 - pebar (11/29/2013) [-]
>indeed it is, the problem is what the role of the state should be. Is it to provide jobs, even if those jobs are useless (like digging a trench and filling it up again), or is it to protect the basic rights of people such as laws against murder and maybe private property which you probably hate and the institutions which markets fail to provide like national defense?

>The poverty line that is often talked about is an arbitrary line that differs from country to country. Friedman compared the citizens of the USSR to the standard of poverty that the US uses. There is a global standard of poverty which is about $1/day but it's usually irrelevant to conversation since almost nobody in any decent country fits in that class.

>The gini coefficient measures income inequality so of course capitalist countries are more unequal. You have to look at the actual people at the bottom because most of them get out of poverty within a few years.

>So communism is desirable because even though it may be less productive, the people are content with life because they don't have much anxiety? I remember seeing some statistics a while back (don't remember where) that compared job satisfaction in various countries; capitalist countries were way higher since they were able to choose and the government which would still exist in a communist society; don't kid yourself didn't place them in a position based on ability.

I remember in another one of Milton Friedman's lectures, he talked about a trip in China, which at that time was way more centrally planned than it is now. He say a group of people digging a ditch with shovels. He asked the government official who was with him, "why do these people have shovels and not heavy equipment?" The official said it was a job creation program, to which Friedman replied "why not take away their shovels and give them spoons?"
User avatar #52662 to #52660 - oxan (11/29/2013) [-]
Well, really, the state's role is to enforce the dominance of one class over another. So, enforcing property rights is a part of the state's role. In socialism, the state's role remains the same, but the proletariat is the ruling class.

The problem with comparing US poverty to, for example, Soviet standards of living, is that it's apples to oranges. If capitalism is so efficient, then all people in a capitalist state should enjoy relatively equal standards of living. If you're comparing your poverty to the standards of living to a state that was decades, if not centuries, behind the United States in terms of development before socialist revolution, capitalism is failing. Especially since the Soviet economy was destroyed during WW2, and then built back up. Again.

Precisely. And that's the point, capitalism doesn't do a good job at introducing equality, which refutes Friedman's point. I'd like to see the evidence that poverty, er, rotates.

How are we measuring productivity? In terms of economic growth? Socialism has proven its superiority in delivering economic growth. Citizens in socialist states selected their government. They did have elections, you know.

Anecdotal evidence which has no real relevance. I'd need to know what year, where in China and a lot more about the situation than what Freidman would be willing to give.
User avatar #52664 to #52662 - pebar (11/29/2013) [-]
Are the Poor Getting Poorer? >enforce the dominance of one class over another
BULLSHIT! I mean, uh, could you please clarify?

Equal standards of living? Why? How about at least decent standards of living for the bottom class and if people can do better than that, that's fine.

vid: the mobility that he talked about

I briefly looked for some data on economic growth comparisons between the USSR and the US but I couldn't find anything. not that I looked very hard... But the US in the 19th and early 20th century are a great example of economic growth under capitalism.

meh it was kinda anecdotal but I think the point still stands that jobs for the sake of jobs is a gross misallocation of resources.
#52665 to #52664 - oxan (11/29/2013) [-]
'The state is a product and a manifestation of the irreconcilability of class antagonisms. The state arises where, when and insofar as class antagonism objectively cannot be reconciled. And, conversely, the existence of the state proves that the class antagonisms are irreconcilable.'

Decent standards of living for the lower classes? Sounds swell. That's how things were in socialism. Were there people who had higher standards? Of course, as socialism rewards according to work done.

I have my skepticisms regarding that video. Young people today have less money than young people a few decades ago. Wages have stagnated while cost of living continues to increase. Since 1980, the rich had been getting rich a lot faster than everyone else. It's disproportionate, especially when you remember that wages have been stagnating. The lower and middle classes might be moving around a bit, but the rich are staying quite firmly rich.

Lost my graph on Soviet growth during the Great Depression. It's probably on my phone somewhere. I'll find it later. Found pic related, though. Tis prior to the '65 economic reforms, too.

as for the rich remain rich, that's to be expected; education helps a lot with maximizing human capital and the rich have access to that. The government subsidizing higher education could be a topic for another thread. Also inheritance (which is heavily taxed already).

Holy shit he's only 80? I thought that senile bastard died before he got some sort of a gig on RT.

He'll never die so long as he has his suspenders of immortality.
They don't suspend his pants, they suspend his life.

Iran in a nutshell
#52540 to #52536 - byposted (11/27/2013) [-]
No. Iran has agreed to a series of terms which it is willing to carry out well in beyond accordance with international nuclear treaties, most notably the NNPT. It is not a matter of them not carrying out what they agreed to, because of largely increased inspections which prove their trust, but the west doing its side of the deal. What happens over the next six months will show whether or not peace is really mutually desired.

All this neocon and nuttyYahoo! asspain was delicious on Sunday Breitbart. They just can't come to the realization that Iran is destined to be a regional power, and that coercive diplomacy with her is far outdated. I loved especially threats of an Israeli and/or Saudi strike. Insha'Allah, give the Shia freedom fighters in Lebanon and Iraq the justification to rain death upon both illegitimate countries!

the problem with all of this is the known fact that Iran smuggles weapons and equipment to Hezbollah and other groups against Israels existence syria? not 100 percent sure on that . Maybe a nuclear warhead could turn up in Hezbollah and they shoot it to Israel, this is what they are much afraid off...
User avatar #52574 to #52555 - byposted (11/27/2013) [-]
We spoke of Israeli motives before. They want all of their neighbors to be stuck in the stone age. Nuclear energy is the way of the future and all countries with potential should be able to pursue it. Iran has natural potential in the post-Saddam Middle East.

This weapons fiasco with Israel dates back to the late 90s. Then you had Israel, under Netanyahu, claiming Iran was only "a few years away from a bomb" and you have the same thing being said today.

About Hezbollah obtaining a nuclear weapon, I seriously doubt that. It goes against all etiquette to supply a militant organization with such things, especially if it is based in Lebanon.

What Israel is afraid of is losing its stature over Iran. If Iran gets a nuke then no longer will they be able to treat Iran like dirt. If Iran, at that rate, proves its peaceful motives to the West they will not be able to bring about anti-Iranian sentiment.

"About Hezbollah obtaining a nuclear weapon, I seriously doubt that."

The problem is is I and the Israeli government don't.
User avatar #52577 to #52575 - byposted (11/27/2013) [-]
You may doubt it, but all Hezbollah needs are conventional weapons. They are not yet in a position to carry such arms. There is no precedent set for smuggling nuclear weapons like that.

But this rests on the assumption that Iran is producing such weapons to begin with. Until otherwise proven, Iran has its right to enrich uranium.

Do you personally believe in Climate Change?

If so how do you believe it could or should be combated, if at all?
User avatar #52613 to #52533 - kanadetenshi (11/28/2013) [-]
You don't "believe" in facts, you understand them.
User avatar #52553 to #52533 - lulzforhiroshima (11/27/2013) [-]
Yes, it is a basically a scientific fact.
I heard they did some survey and like it was 98 or 97% of scientists believed in climate change.
However i don't believe we as humans can stop it or are actually willing too
User avatar #52551 to #52533 - undeadwill (11/27/2013) [-]

And it can't be combated.

Set to inherit small mansion and a buttfuck ton of money.

Everyone in my family is telling me to sell the mansion and to donate all the money to a local charity.

And they also called me a capitalist pig.

And by everyone I mean sort of everyone (mostly my cousins and such.)

What relevance is capitalism in something like that?
User avatar #52554 to #52529 - lulzforhiroshima (11/27/2013) [-]
Are you kidding me? Don't donate that, you have an amazing chance that most people don't to live your life and invest it to make even more. Take that opportunity.
User avatar #52531 to #52529 - akkere (11/27/2013) [-]
Capitalism has often been butchered into a derogatory term usually used to describe anyone with any amount of wealth significantly greater than their peers.
I suppose it'd be relevant in terms of having the wealth be rightfully yours if it was inherited as such, which is a central part of capitalism (kind of), but honestly you should think nothing of it.
If I were you, I'd move away from those family members honestly, or at least deafen any contact with them. They sound pretty volatile.
#52532 to #52531 - 4chan refugee (11/27/2013) [-]
I probably will.

One of my dickface scrawny male cousins literally wanted to try and kill me so he could have it instead.

Fun fact, he knocked up another cousin of ours, and he does drugs.

Was the cousin hot?
Those are the kind of people you usually punch in the nose a couple of times and they'll never show their face in front of you again. That or you could buy a firearm, assuming you live in the States.
#52538 to #52535 - 4chan refugee (11/27/2013) [-]
No, she's not hot. I have her added on facebook. Every time i login and see her idiotic pictures with her obvious photoshop. You can see all her wrinkles and shit. She looks like a fucking granny. And her breath stinks.

Yep, fuck them all. I do own a couple shotguns. So, I'm cool.

I'm working on my college plan and I have it mostly worked out, but I'm stuck on one thing. For my economics minor, I have to take one more 400 level class and I'm stuck between two choices: history of economic thought or monetary theory and policy.
Which is better?
User avatar #52534 to #52519 - akkere (11/27/2013) [-]
Choose monetary theory and policy in terms of understanding how currency (usually our modern day fiat money) works; good to have in understanding how things work today.
History of economic thought in terms of understanding economic structures and how they develop to the modern world.

Basically, if you want to understand something ongoing and consistently applied (though you yourself may not be able to use it except in discussion), go Monetary Theory.
If you want what's essentially the equivalent to a humanities class in economics that'll also give you plenty to discuss about, go with History of Economic Thought.

I've taken both and I've personally found History of Economic Thought as a "breath taker" class (every humanities class is), which is good if you're loaded up on heavy weight classes that'll bog you down in studying time.
User avatar #52523 to #52519 - lulzforhiroshima (11/27/2013) [-]
For sure History of Economic Thought, and not just because of this board.
#52520 to #52519 - valeriya (11/26/2013) [-]
history of economic thought (assuming of mixed theory syllabus) because you'll learn more widely.
