Cultural appropriation and cross-cultural exchange are two different things, people who dislike the act of cultural appropriation and aren't complete chauvinist retards have nothing against cross-cultural exchange. Not that I think cultural appropriation is some big deal anyway.

Would you say it's a viable option to leave innovation in space travel up to the private sector?

Right now, I would say no.
The only real profit that space travel can turn right now is in space tourism. Which is a small niche industry. It'll be a long time before space ambitions will really be profitable.

Though I'm interested to hear what you think.
User avatar #69764 to #69762 - whatley ONLINE (17 hours ago) [-]
Considering that in modern times the private sector is doing better than the public sector in regards to space travel, I would say yes. Not to say I still don't want government research, grants, and subsidies to occur, but the private sector may be the driving force in years to come.
#69763 to #69762 - youregaylol (17 hours ago) [-]
You're forgetting contracting, private companies will create technology for the sole purpose of selling or renting it to the government. This is how the military gets some of it's greatest weaponry, by holding competitions. The government puts out an ad asking for a certain product, and private tech companies will present their take on it in the hopes that the gov will do business with them, it's a very efficient system by and large.

I'd say it would be the radicalization of the Islamic minority. And for once we have mainstream media sensationalism to thank for something, because if there's something sensationalism is good at it's culturally isolating things.

The only real threats that I can imagine are terror attacks and the radicalizing of Islamic minorities, turning them into homegrown terrorists.

In a conventional war they would pose no threat.

Before 9/11 happened there where about 6 mosques i believe that where spreading and teaching radicalization. Do you think this is happening now in Mosques in the USA. Honestly im all for religious freedom and privacy but i think we need some security in suspicious mosques. Especially those that have members with beards and no mustaches. That is a symbol of radicalism.

The truth hurts, I believe that everyone who is pro choice should be forced to view an abortion. After all, I have no problem seeing the consequences of the things I support.
User avatar #69738 to #69713 - eight (22 hours ago) [-]
I don't get why people ignore the rights of the mother in favor of something that isn't even fully formed yet. Isn't her life and well-being more important in the situation? Her body, her choice is my thought.
#69744 to #69738 - youregaylol (21 hours ago) [-]
"fully formed" has no meaning, we're all constantly progressing in our life cycle.

and what about those born with with birth defects, can they be killed because they aren't "fully formed"?

or is the argument that they aren't really human because they depend on someone else? does someone stop being a human because they have to live off life support or require 24 hour care?

why is the mothers life less important than the child's life? because she has a higher level of functionality? can we kill those with mental deficiencies, are they not "human"?

is it not also the babies body we're discussing, in addition the mothers? does the child have no "right" to his/her body because they are not able to communicate?

in addition the mother, in the mass majority of cases, already had a choice when she had sex without taking all necessary precautions.

abortion is a disgusting practice, and it's only use is controlling the degenerate population.

""fully formed" has no meaning, we're all constantly progressing in our life cycle.

Fully formed could have meaning if you're invested in whether or not it's a human at a specific stage.
Depends on the perspective of the person arguing against abortion. Honestly, don't really care. I'm more concerned about the mother. I don't think it would be immoral to terminate a baby that would have birth defects (such as down syndrome).

"or is the argument that they aren't really human because they depend on someone else? does someone stop being a human because they have to live off life support or require 24 hour care?"

Life support isn't a human. It depends on the level of dependence. A toddler needing a human to survive is not the same as a fetus requiring a mother to exist and grow.

"why is the mothers life less important than the child's life? because she has a higher level of functionality? can we kill those with mental deficiencies, are they not "human"? "
The child cannot exist without the mother sacrificing her body, time and health. So yes, the mother is more important as it's effecting her well-being.

"is it not also the babies body we're discussing, in addition the mothers? does the child have no "right" to his/her body because they are not able to communicate? "

No, the baby does not have rights. Not if it's essentially a parasite on the mother. It's the mothers choice until the child is born.

"in addition the mother, in the mass majority of cases, already had a choice when she had sex without taking all necessary precautions."

She made a bad choice, but that doesn't mean from that point on that all choice is stripped from her. She is still a capable human being able to make choices. The fetus is not.

"abortion is a disgusting practice, and it's only use is controlling the degenerate population."
Abortion is a neutral practice.

Lori and Reba Schappell - Conjoined Twins found the twins
#69751 to #69747 - youregaylol (20 hours ago) [-]
Most of your arguments are based on the premise that viability=human, which is utterly false. Consider conjoined twins, I believe in one case a pair shared 40% of their frontal lobe in addition to several other important blood vessels, meaning they couldn't be separated. Both lived normal lives, and neither had any severe mental deficiencies.

If two people can be distinct while sharing the same brain, why would an umbilical cord be any different?

You also need to freshen up on your definition of parasite. I could list them all the differences here but this page lists them all for the most part.
www.l4l.org/library/notparas.html

You see all of your premises are based in strange ideological assumptions, not science or logical morality.

That taking of innocent human life will always be disgusting.

Assuming not anarchism,
Libertarians do not argue against ALL regulation. The airbag bit is nonsense because if you wanted a car with an airbag, you shouldn't have bought one without one. If you look at car commercials, safety is a huge selling point. The private police is nonsense, libertarians do not have a problem with tax funded police. The dirt road is nonsense, roads are funded by gas taxes; if you don't drive, you don't pay the tax.
The poor working conditions is also nonsense. If you don't like your job, don't work there. The competition between employers trying to get the necessary labor they need improves working conditions more than government ever could.

A lot of that other stuff is why I think anarchists make libertarians look bad, as I said a couple posts below.

There was virtually no regulation in the late 19th and early 20th century, and yet it produced the greatest improvement in the lives of ordinary people for the widest range of people that the world had ever seen. Tens of millions of immigrants came to America in that time because it was better than everywhere else.

Due to a lack of capital.
Every economy IN THE WORLD has to go through that stage of economic development. It was rapidly improving during that time. In places without capital accumulation that did regulate child labor, children either turned to prostitution or they starved.

You are being too impartial. Whatever opinions you possess are overshadowed by such "respect."

Respect Israel, for they have a purpose and "history," just like any other state. Respect Turkey, because they are merely pursuing their interests.

What of the composition, or quality? Do Israel's wants coincide with prosperity for the Levant? Has Turkey's role in Syria secured a future for the country, or has it brought about deep regression?

Internet downloading: Films, Television and Music
Should it be legal or illegal?

This assumes that you do not plan to sell anything you download for financial gain.
User avatar #69712 to #69687 - pebar (09/22/2014) [-]
In general I think it should be illegal. Copyright is important IMO.
User avatar #69720 to #69712 - eight (09/22/2014) [-]
Copyright is important, but I find that it's primarily meant to protect from plagiarization.

Shouldn't downloads be treated more closely to fair use in terms of using it as intended? It's created for the purpose to be seen and heard. The more exposure it has, the more hype it receives, the more likely people will consider buying it or seeing it in a theater.
User avatar #69722 to #69720 - pebar (09/22/2014) [-]
I would think that decision should be up to the holder of the copyright.
For example, some lesser known musicians opt to do that, others don't.
User avatar #69730 to #69722 - eight (23 hours ago) [-]
Should people be punished then for downloading it anyway against the holders wishes? I think current laws need to adapt to the new ways we view entertainment.

And I'm not sure I'd agree that it's up to the holder to decide who gets to view their creations. They're in the wrong business if they create something that's meant to entertain others, and yet don't allow people to be entertained by it unless they purchase it outright.
For instance, we wouldn't punish a person for watching the new X-Men movie just because the DVD isn't owned by them, but rather their roommates. After all, they didn't personally purchase it. Technically, they are freeloading just as much as someone who downloads it online.

Controlling who gets to view it alienates a huge portion of their potential fanbase and potential buyers(mostly the poor who can't afford to take a chance on something they might not enjoy). I think that kind of outlook will hurt sales more than anything. They should have control who gets to buy or sell their creation, that's about it.

Clearly many artists, at least in the music field, are catching on to this, which is why we have so much free music on artists official channels and vevo like on youtube.

St. Louis Metropolitan Police are investigating an armed robbery of six people who were walking from a restaurant in the 1100 block of Mississippi Avenue at 11:11 p.m. on Saturday.

Police said the three couples, all of them from 59 to 61 years old, had just left a restaurant and were walking north on the west side of Mississippi when they were approached by two men. One of the men pointed a silver gun at the group and demanded their belongings.

After the second man grabbed items from the group, the first man said, "This is for Michael Brown," according to a police account. Both men then fled on foot.
