Instead of having such a big problem with illegal immigrants and drug smuggling, we should just annex Mexico.

Maybe just central America (and Cuba), we can stop there. We don't need to be too greedy. Look at that nice southern US border...   
Also we would have to emphasize the 10th amendment as to not upset too many people during the transition.

Look I know this doesn't have anything to do with politics but its a state law in Texas.

While some guy who was failing all of his classes just put B for all the questions passed.

"The link is only an association: as usual, the answer is provided by climate models. There is no way to conduct a controlled, double-blind experiment with an ocean's weather. Aerosols are implicated only by association.

Feminism may claim to be for “Human rights” However has a real problem with dealing with the issues of men because its name attracts those who want to fight for women’s rights and predominately focus on them. Like the fact genital mutilation of men is the norm in today’s society. Or that only men will be called on for selective service when a draft is called. That judges are often very bias toward women when it comes to which parent gets to raising child and which one pays for it even if the woman isn’t raising the child the man is still expected to pay child support and can be denied visitation on the will of the mother. Or that in the US due to the prison system male rape is not only ignored but the rapists are never brought to justice even if they give the victim a fatal disease. These are all major issues feminism ignores while it starts a witch hunt of sexualization in the media and whether or not a man opens a door for a woman. Because apparently being forced by a draft to go to war, losing your children, and getting a part of your dick cut off aren’t good enough issues for the attention of feminists.

Let's start with:


1. Socialist Feminism, in which women's emancipation is seen as intimately connected to the emancipation of the working class and consequently of humanity as a whole. Within Socialist Feminism, “Marxist Feminism” is the current which employs the theoretical legacy of Marxism in order to theorise the special oppression of women within the relations of production, both domestic and social. Shulamith Firestone is an example of a feminist who turned Marxist categories to use in feminist theory;
2. Liberal (or “Bourgeois”) Feminism, in which the claim of women for equal rights is seen in the context of a general opposition to various forms of oppression and discrimination, independently of other political convictions. Liberal feminism tends to emphasise social policy to open up professional, better-paid and prestigious jobs to women and the elimination of laws discriminating against the political, property and social rights of women;
3. Radical Feminism, which lays emphasis on the “celebration” of femininity, rather than seeing femininity as a social construct which simply constitutes a form of oppression and discrimination within patriarchal, i.e., male-dominated, society. Kate Millett was one of the founders of Radical Feminism.

User avatar #37215 to #37213 - undeadwill (06/24/2013) [-]
Because the countries who are experiencing these troubles can not change an age old custom through trade regulations only by a movements within their own country. Because then they will ignore us and keep doing what they want in secret like they are now.

While it should be done. We lack the ability to liberate them. They must liberate themselves otherwise its just "Westerns trying to force their morality on them by means of imperialism" Extremist groups rise up and we lose in the long run.

Nobody said anything about de jure political actions. Voluntary advocacy can be an extremely powerful social force; oftentimes it's just about those little chances that make society just a bit better. That's the difference between an activist and an average Joe that's pissed off enough about something to try to change it, some people simply enjoy dedicating their lives to causes.

Remember that the extremely socially reactionary societies of the Middle East are a relatively new phenomenon.
User avatar #37075 to #37074 - undeadwill (06/24/2013) [-]
Or that when feminist go on about who is watching porn and who makes 2 cents extra(using statistics that are ignoring all other factors). gay and lesbians like myself are begging for equality. The gay panic defense was used in courts a few years ago (If a gay man comes on to you you have the right to kill said gay man) Massive amounts of suicide among gay youth, being banning from being able to donate blood. A president who said he would help us but then used our support to funnel toward things like health care and gun control. And when he does something for gay rights its only where there is no opposition. He didn’t order to allow gay join the military, his generals did. Then you have the banning our fundamental right as US citizens to marry while our tax dollars pay for benefits of other couples. The second class citizen status. And across the pond where women may be oppressed gay and lesbians are systematically eliminated in cruel methods you wouldn’t wish on a murder. And before you claim that feminists fight for us I’ll stop you right there. They believe we should be free but would rather continue their witch hunt of sexism. They would rather focus on what someone looking like in the media than the fact the fact while they sit on top of their own privilege we have to still are fighting for equality.

So tell me. Do we really need feminism? Or do we need equalitism on even front, ignoring the barriers of race, nationality, sexual orientations, and gender. Because labeling yourself MRA, Black rights, white rights, feminist, gay rights, straight rights, religious, nonreligious, and etc. only helps attract people from one side or the other instead of coming together as one people who actually want and seek equality and not a another side. Otherwise the radicals, reactionaries, fundies, and extremism will lead a movement claiming equality till it becomes oppressive.

I didn’t want to write all this. But I did. Because someone needed to.

What do you people think the pros and cons are of a democratically elected communist party that balances most pay instead of equalling all of it to keep economic assets as well as high end people (scientists, footballers, etc). Without monetary gain being the target in life people will be drawn to their passions rather than high paying jobs, culture, such as games, tv and music will be based on the artists vision rather than appealing to a mainstream audience or based off a formula for ease and speed and companies will have no reason to hold back their product to make more money (like dlc's for games released on the day).

#37125 to #37124 - yobs (06/24/2013) [-]
You don't make all of your society like that so some, like football, is connected to the international economy and helps your own. So without relying on other countries to be run the same way you can still function.
User avatar #37127 to #37125 - oxan (06/24/2013) [-]
So, you're significantly decreasing income gaps (by how much, by the way?), but without eliminating bourgeois ideology, which encourages the lust for profit, and the economy is still part of the global economy? I can see no way this would work.
#37128 to #37127 - yobs (06/24/2013) [-]
The income would basically be the same except where there is a demand for workers or the pay demands are high from people that will help the economy like footballers. The culture you change is peoples value of wealth and status to focus on the things that really matter so people are more genuine. Thing economy isn't part of the global economy but some businesses are to keep up the country's economic strength.

User avatar #37013 to #37010 - pebar ONLINE (06/24/2013) [-]
But IMO, a society like this is naive and short sighted because the world doesn't work like that. Pretending it does can be devastating to the economy if you try to use the government to take from more fortunate people to satisfy your own selfish desires..
#37015 to #37013 - yobs (06/24/2013) [-]
Society can be that way and it isn't to satisfy selfish desires or take away from the more fortunate. It's to bring about a more passionate society that is happier from no worry of financial security and a higher quality culture. It will allow more equal oppotunities for happiness because of access to the all entertainment. It will stop people making money off nothing like the stock market or high interest loans that can be to the detriment of other people.
User avatar #37027 to #37015 - diabesity (06/24/2013) [-]
But humans are pretty competitive, so where would the missing competition come from?
Also it's human nature to be selfish; I think that goes with out saying. Most people don't want to work to support others, they only want to support their own family.
Nobody wants to work to support people they hate or who hate them. But in a society like that you'd have to. And if you didn't feel like working you wouldn't have to, you could feign disability pretty easily, or get fat or something.
#37028 to #37027 - yobs (06/24/2013) [-]
There would be competition just not money based, there would still be competition for different ideas. You work for others in society now, that's what taxes are. The point is to to move away from the idea of working for a living and to be safe in the knowledge you have financial security and can choose whatever job you would most enjoy, this is the highest level of motivation psychologically and leaves people the most content. People survive of benefits from false claims already, it might even get people out of this by presenting work as something enjoyable (this is wishful thinking I admit as many of these people are lazy beyond reason).
User avatar #37049 to #37028 - diabesity (06/24/2013) [-]
I just think it would collapse when the tons of lazy people decide they don't feel like working anymore and everyone else gets sick of their shit.
Also, I don't know how the education system would work. I assume everyone would get a full ride in a degree of their choice, but I don't know where that would leave some of the meager working class jobs (being a janitor, farmer, trucker, etc.)

TO ME it would feel like my future was laid out on a silver platter for me; I'd feel pretty bored and complacent with something like that, always knowing I'm gonna be provided for no matter what.

And, why be a doctor and spend almost a decade of your life in school when you could be a teacher and receive just as much?
#37113 to #37049 - yobs (06/24/2013) [-]
Many people choose to be a doctor because they can save and help people not to mention the respect it brings. Not everyone is academic or wants to get a degree and there is such high unemployment now that not everyone needs to be working all time as shown. This means people could work less hours to open up more jobs if needed so people have more free time. See work as the main challenge in life means you might be complacent, but it's better to think like the world is your oyster and you can do what you want without it effecting your quality of life.

excessive taxes hurt the economy
#37034 to #37030 - yobs (06/24/2013) [-]
It isn't about excessive taxing and there would be a more controlled economy so it would not be effected in the same way as a completely free economy.

The economy doesn't need to the government to tie its shoes. All it needs is a point in the right direction and it can take care of itself.
#37043 to #37037 - yobs (06/24/2013) [-]
That's a free economy that is structured with large monopolies and is built upon growth and investment which leaves it susceptible to ruin when growth slows down even though there will always be steps back. An economy not built entirely on monetary supply and demand that needs to fill more niche roles must be controlled or could, like any economy though, suffer collapse.

your plentiful jobs will not exist
your happiness will not exist

but as long as everyone is equal....
#37023 to #37022 - yobs (06/24/2013) [-]
Are you listening? Without money providing direction these things will be better and I said why, I even said not everyone would be equal. You haven't even explained any of your points.
User avatar #37024 to #37023 - pebar ONLINE (06/24/2013) [-]
People are inherently greedy and it is the greed that motivates people to succeed because of competition. If you take away this incentive by removing money, there is nothing left to drive the economy. People will not labor to create new games because they won't get anything in return. People will not build companies that provide jobs because they get nothing from it. People will be left with nothing new and no job. All you will have is people working just barely enough to survive.

That is the reality of communism........ People have tried to change this self-centered nature through strong government, but like all large governments, they become corrupt and abuse their power, screwing up the attempt to reach utopia.

We're taught from school to aim for a well paying job so it may stem partially from that. The whole point is to remove greed from the equation and let people be driven without it. Musicians get into music because of their love of music, excluding manufactured bands and fame seekers, not because of the wealth at the end. Volvo even turned down a monopoly on seat belts because of how important they thought them to be, this means no profit for your company even though money has been put into research and development.

People are inherently greedy... It's written into their DNA, it's caused by evolution, it's seen in countless other species, not just humans. Good luck removing it.
And it's not necessarily maximum wealth that all people are after. It could be happiness, it could be peace of mind, either way it's still self-centered. There are a few people who display altruistic behavior but it is hardly enough to run an economy.
#37031 to #37029 - yobs (06/24/2013) [-]
It's not altruistic at all you aren't giving up anything you just can't as easily become rich, entertainment and happiness is there for you anyway so so much more money couldn't buy you more happiness anyway.

if it's still egocentric-based, then your communist society is doomed to fail because people do not like helping other people to their own cost
#37036 to #37035 - yobs (06/24/2013) [-]
There is no cost, they do their job and someone else does the same. Where does someone have to help someone else?
User avatar #37038 to #37036 - pebar ONLINE (06/24/2013) [-]
them working is the cost..........
#37039 to #37038 - yobs (06/24/2013) [-]
People have to work anyway so there is no change with the cost, only the motivation to work changes which is an improvement.
User avatar #37042 to #37039 - pebar ONLINE (06/24/2013) [-]
People don't have to work, they choose to work, at least to the extent people do now.
#37044 to #37042 - yobs (06/24/2013) [-]
People need money so have to work even though many really don't enjoy it
User avatar #37045 to #37044 - pebar ONLINE (06/24/2013) [-]
People don't need money, people want money. People need food, shelter, and water; anything more than that is a luxury. It is this extra luxury that people work for and it is the work that builds the economy. If you take away this luxury then people only work for the food, shelter, and water, which isn't very much.
#37046 to #37045 - yobs (06/24/2013) [-]
People would work for enjoyment they don't need the extra motivation. Luxury is what people need if they have so much free time and it isn't being taken away anyway.
User avatar #37048 to #37046 - pebar ONLINE (06/24/2013) [-]
Like I said, the world doesn't work like that. It's naive to think people will continue to work simply because they like their jobs.
#37105 to #37048 - yobs (06/24/2013) [-]
Doing things we enjoy is the main reason we do anything
User avatar #37012 to #37010 - pebar ONLINE (06/24/2013) [-]
there are a few communists here who would agree with you
User avatar #37057 to #37012 - oxan (06/24/2013) [-]
>instead of equalling all of it

No communist here would support that.
User avatar #37060 to #37057 - pebar ONLINE (06/24/2013) [-]
he seems more like a statist social democrat than a communist
User avatar #37062 to #37060 - oxan (06/24/2013) [-]
>statist social democrat

You love that term now, don't you? ^.^

What's the political ideology where one doesn't really give a rats ass, and is neutral about everything, and prefers to serve oneself in a hedonistic fashion?
User avatar #37245 to #36947 - arisaka (06/24/2013) [-]
Moral nihilism
User avatar #37061 to #36947 - oxan (06/24/2013) [-]
False consciousness. Or idiocy.
User avatar #36963 to #36947 - pebar ONLINE (06/23/2013) [-]
not giving a rat's ass about politics fits most people who vote democrat
User avatar #36972 to #36963 - CapnInterwebz (06/23/2013) [-]
Not giving a rat's ass about politics or simply having a different view than your own?
User avatar #36973 to #36972 - pebar ONLINE (06/23/2013) [-]
the former, according to a lot of the people I know
User avatar #36955 to #36947 - byposted (06/23/2013) [-]
libertarianism and nihilism combined

You should vote for Gary Johnsonberg because you probably love smoking weed.
