Pebar, should food prices be regulated?
#63837 to #63835 - pebar ONLINE (05/18/2014) [-]
Definitely not. When the government says a company cannot charge more than X amount, companies have no reason to provide the food because it is not profitable. It creates a shortage.
If the government wants to subsidize food, then that's fine as long as it's done right.
User avatar #63847 to #63837 - schnizel (05/19/2014) [-]
But the food prices have been regulated in yugoslavia and the people were happy about it. And now everything is going up, a fucking candle is 2,5 KM.

You're forgetting about competition.
You're implying that all private companies are monopolies.
User avatar #63834 to #63833 - schnizel (05/18/2014) [-]
Men desire for dominance, that is in our nature, but the state has the monopoly on (insert name here) so they keep it in check.
User avatar #63838 to #63834 - pebar ONLINE (05/18/2014) [-]
All monopolies, even government ones, are horribly inefficient. They provide a low quality product at a high price because they have no incentive to do better.
A great example is America's public school system. It is shit.

Companies desire to dominate a market because it is profitable. But in a competitive market, the only way to dominate is to produce a better product for the same price, or the same product at a lower price.
User avatar #63846 to #63838 - schnizel (05/19/2014) [-]
Can the goverment regulate prices?
User avatar #63848 to #63846 - pebar ONLINE (05/19/2014) [-]
With a monopoly to an extent, but it may be unwise because other companies would no longer be motivated to join the market and break the monopoly.

typical aristocratic monarchy
new monarch is not supporting the royal party or whatever its called - he supports the left wingers
the aristocrats doesn't like it, they start claiming that he is not the legitimate heir and want his younger sister to take the throne

im not sure if this is 100%, been a few months since I read up on it, but thats about the main points.. Aristocracy v monarch

Assad loses eventually, they vote in(or not) an equally if not more oppressive government dictator. Rinse and Repeat.
#63822 to #63811 - byposted (05/18/2014) [-]
Excluding the increasingly unlikely prospects for Western intervention (with Erdogan being placated, in part due to increasing economic ties with Iran, and an Obama reluctant from the beginning), Damascus will not capitulate. Homs, or what remains of it, was recently liberated, and Dera is on its way -- both cities having been "protest" centers in 2011.

It is safe to say that Assad will be reelected as President in the national vote, three weeks from now, and that the dynasty will survive the so-called "Arab spring." Such is not to say that there will not be trouble ahead; Syria will need at least a half-century to recover from the destruction of half a decade and, within that unstable period, anything can happen.
#63824 to #63822 - repostsrepost (05/18/2014) [-]
An oppressive dictatorship is not an avoidable outcome in Syria or in most muslim countries for that matter. The best we can hope for is that it's not the Muslim Brotherhood or their kind who start to gain influence like in Egypt and Libya.

Cmon. "Extreme patriotism especially in the form of aggressions
solely in the form of aggression. Which means it COULD mean they are war mongerers but it could also mean they are simply belligerent and nationalist-chauvanistic, get it?

I don't think most of those countries are jingoistic when the word is used to describe the kind of people who use nationalism to justify wars left and right.
User avatar #63871 to #63870 - revengeforfreeze (05/19/2014) [-]
Fine, only Serbians are. Not because they use it to justify war, but it can also be defined as their attitude towards other countries. Which is not really that 'good'

Trireme without a captain.

User avatar #63779 to #63778 - jewishcommunazi (05/16/2014) [-]
It's not exactly chaos, there are sorts of bodies that replace the state, they're just not top-down, hierarchical, etc.

It's moneyless, so no one actually gets money, but we don't distinguish classes according to how much people receive anyway, it's through the relation to the means of production.

Because money has no use in a communist society.

No form of goverment, everyone can do what they want, the "land" will be in control by local warlords with no loyalty to the warlord on the left and right, everything will be given on how much people need, not how much they deserve and to much equalization will make men into people from Wall-e.

We still have communes, councils, etc., we can have popular militias enforcing civil laws and the "people from Wall-E" in real life would probably start getting some fucked up mental issues as a result of their lifestyle.

It's basically a form of authority where the power isn't in the hands of elected representatives but in the hands of a small elite with social ties.

It's a system ruled by a few, pretty much what's in between autocracy and democracy. Western-style democracy is sort of oligarchic, but the best example is probably the current chinese government system.

Metal Gear Solid 4 - Cinematic Opening [HQ]

Metal Gear Solid 4, a game released in 2008, that takes place in 2014, which is the present year. The game is very physiological. One of the main ideas of the game is that War has change, to the point beyong reason, and it is all about profit.

I believe that the story of the game has come true, that war is just about making a profit, proxy battles day and night, not for an idea, but for money.

I think Ukraine is a fine example of this.

As said in the game, "War, has changed."

If an group has a view they feel is morally right, then they generally understand their position and framework of their morality, understanding its pros and cons when applied, and would accept the consequences and rewards of their mindset.

Some one who is maintaining their neutrality, probably have reasons to do so, be it morale on a different aspect or conflicts that would arise from them participating. By demanding someone out of their chosen neutrality, you force them to make decisions they never wanted to do in the first place. You can persuade someone to choose a side but only if they decide to do it themselves.

He gave an example of saying "what if your neighbor decides he wants to hurt you"

and he said "what are you going to do to stop him? " Are you going to file a court order against him? That won't stop him from hurting you, are you going to call the police? He would be finished with you by the time they arive. YOu got to stand up for your self, prepare for war"

Kill all faggots. Every last one. Single bullet to the brain, bodies in a shipping crate, cover in lye, bury in a ditch. Erase them from human history. Queers have the same rights as the Voluntary Human Extinction Movement: none whatsoever. Any government that is not actively working to remove threats to humanity itself does not deserve its station.

In before “HURR EDGY”
In before “HURR BIGOT”
In before "HURR BURGER"
None of those refute the fact that queers have revoked their human rights.
