It's ok, 'muricans have a very negative vision of socialism, which they kind of confuse with comunism. Real socialism is really just an economy controlled by the government mainly in benefit of those of the lower class, it's objective is not the equality of all but a much fairer enviroment by providing resources, not like direct money but education, health and so on to those who can't afford it.

The problem people have with socialism is a) it uses the capital of those on the higher classes to afford itself / b) politicians fuck things up by being corrupt and only focusing gov spending on the sectors who vote for them.

Well now we do not have an understanding of your principles. My principles dictate that I do not condone stealing in any form. If you believe any form of theft is justified, then you must believe all forms of theft are justified, otherwise your principles are inconsistent. Theft is theft. Twist it however you want.

I agree, it's mostly a childish fantasy that libertarianism can provide a fair environment for everyone to succeed. If a child is born into poverty they neither have the education required to get ahead or potentially the health to get ahead if they cant afford good care. And if they can't afford enough food, they obviously wouldn't be able to concentrate in whatever sub-par school they go to anyway. That part is just basic biology. To think that it's fair to subject kids to that and then the whole time claim if they worked hard it was possible while a select few get to work nothing in their life sitting upon millions of dollars represents a very, very twisted and fairly disgusting world view. Is stealing wrong in most cases? Of course. Could it be justified if it meant providing equal opportunity to those who are suffering? I believe so. And if you make 10 million dollars and are pissed off because you're forced to pay 5 million back to society then you're just a petty, greedy asshole. Nobody deserves to live in extreme luxury like that.

That isn't true at all. Blanket statements like that are never accurate. Theft for personal or selfish reasons, or to fuel drug habits are of course bad, and i don't condone that at all. Theft from someone who doesn't need to quantity of resources that they have, and can still have a comfortable living without some of those resources, and then giving those resources to help people who work just as hard but have gotten a bad break while is still theft, is being done for a moral and justifiable reason.

Which basically mean you would support the stealing of personal property (in this case cows).

Hey, not all forms of stealing are bad. I would definitely leave the man with 99 cows, plenty enough of his cows that he would make a comfortable living.

Wow, I didn't know that the Netherlands were so tolerant. I guess they didn't have as big an impact. According to history books, at least.
User avatar #1065 - rockamekishiko (01/11/2013) [-]
i think that was due to the fact that people wanted to come to america because it was mostly virgin land waiting to be exploited back in the 1700s, with people from all over the world all the great ideas and commerce melted together in one country making it prosper and attracting more people in turn. why didn't that happen with canada, mexico and the rest of the american continent? maybe it's due to who the founders and colonizers were and their ideals.
#829 - anonymous (01/11/2013) [-]
because they didn't make a point of colonizing half the planet.
#625 - astafarianp (01/11/2013) [-]
Well they didn't have as big of an impact because they got squeezed out by England and France.

You sound a lot like a shill.

Either that or you just like to thumb your own comments up 0 minutes after posted them.

Quit trying so hard to be right an have a meaningful "NON BIAS" converstion
#2 to #1 - astafarianp (12/29/2012) [-]
1. I don't even know what a shill is.

2. I didn't thumb up any of my own comments

3. I wasn't being biased, i just don't believe that trying to put the needs of the world ahead of individual nations is the same as what you're saying.

4. I don't believe your conspiracy theory and i was being very civil about it. You're the one who's biased. You blocked me because i dared have a different opinion.
User avatar #3 to #2 - davidavidson (12/29/2012) [-]
If you don't know what a shill is then your argument is already invalid.

I am very much done here

Good. Btw you should look at you're comments. Red thumbs mean stop.
User avatar #5 to #4 - davidavidson (12/29/2012) [-]
That is nice honey. Red thumbs mean posting against the grain.

I'm not going to argue with you any longer. It is a lost cause
#6 to #5 - astafarianp (12/29/2012) [-]
You know if you really believed in free expression of ideas you wouldn't block people who disagree. When you do it makes just as bad as the people you claim to be against. If you think government and elites are trying to silence people and block argument, you probably shouldn't do the same thing.
