>an unmanned runaway train is hurtling down a track
>it is headed towards a bridge, with one person tied to the tracks
>further along the railroad are several hundred people tied to the tracks
>by blowing up the bridge, you will kill the one person, and save the rest further down the track
>by doing nothing, everyone dies unless some miracle stops the train

What would you do?
User avatar #89518 to #89517 - economicfreedom (6 hours ago) [-]
did you cause the train to lose control?
If not, it's not your problem. You have no right to say that one person must die so that others can live.

Also, why the fuck are there explosives planted on a bridge in the first place?
If you have time to plant them yourself, you have time to untie people.
Is the this work of some sadistic philosopher?

Won WW2 as the third reich in Vic2 Ultimate. ITT: Thought experiment. Divide Europe either in a way that will provide a lasting peace, dominance for Germany, or whatever else you think is most important.

Really I think one of the only ways you could unite Europe and have everyone be happy with it, is if you formed some sort of loose confederation between everyone, with a small government presiding over all countries, much like the early US. Where the federal government was small and held little power beyond diplomacy and lawmaking, and where most powerful lied with the states.

So states like Germany, France, and Britain could all maintain their personal interests and cultures, yet still remain interconnected politically and militarily and work underneath the same sets of laws.

Does anyone know how to do /pol/ RISK games? I don't always have access to my desktop, so it'd be really useful to have one start at a specific time.

Pebar, thought you'd appreciate.

Article from Milton Friedman back in late 90s about the potential dangers of common currency.

We actually learned why the euro was bad in my macro econ class and it said basically this.

I'm pretty sure my prof was a monetarist
Incidentally, he also teaches the class on "monetary theory and policy"

I'm conflicted on the Greek referendum

If they vote yes it'll mean more bailouts
If they vote no it'll mean they're not going to pay their debt


But overall this entire shitshow just seems to be an excuse for socialists to rally and burn the country to the ground. And i feel this wouldn't have been such a disaster if they just let Samaras balance the budget

Is forcing voters to take an aptitude/political knowledge/IQ test every so or so years a bad idea?
User avatar #89469 to #89460 - kanadetenshi (07/05/2015) [-]
I know plenty of people with high IQs that really have no idea how politics work.
User avatar #89477 to #89469 - supahsayin (07/05/2015) [-]
that's why political knowledge would be part of the test.
#89489 to #89477 - mixednuts (07/06/2015) [-]
Who's responsible for writing and grading the test and how the questions are written would be a hotly debated mess. You could end up with loaded questions like this.

There are similar criticisms surrounding referendum.

I take that back
even in high school, history classes are often skewed towards leftists...

no, let stupid people vote however way they want.
If they vote randomly, they would cancel each other out
