If you get 80lp/day then:

1) join a top faction that is pretty certain to stick around.

2) Be patient

3) Stop whining

Topic: Serious Discussion / Americans are no different

A large reason why you’re in a strong(relatively) position economically is because your currency is the reserve currency of the world.

Start printing a shitton of it and it won’t be much longer, screwing you over.

Also if you started to actually use your military might to gain advantage over other major nations(china, germany, uk, japan etc) then you’d likely see trade embargos, and a united front against you.

You’d be fucked basically.

Depends if Government still exists, they could charge it as part of the Rent. Quite in fact all Land belongs to the government and is just leased out to the “private owners”. Its the reason why the laws still apply on “private property” and why “private owners” can´t just take their land and declare a new kingdom.

You actually have that completely backwards. It is not the government that creates society; it is the society that creates government. People exist long before governments, and so the land belongs to the people before it belongs to the government. What country do you live in where you were raised to believe you are a servant of the government rather than the other way around?

But property rights enshrined in law weren’t there before people created Government.

Also I think you’re using quite incendiary rhetoric when accusing them of saying we’re slaves to the Government. By saying that Government helps create society(as in public transport, roads, schools, laws etc) does not equate to us being slaves to it.

Good private schools, which rich people can afford.

If they have to pay for them, then that kinda contradicts with ‘rich people no longer have to pay for’, doesn’t it?

Rich people don’t pay for the schools that poor people attend.

This then makes all non private schools utter shit, creating an incredibly stupid working class, productivity drops and the rich people whine about their workers being idiots.

Correct me if I’ve misinterpreted you Winnabago, I only skimmed the last page.

^^ Yeah thts the reason, USA is having financial crisis because USA is invading countries for no reason in the name of terrorists (that also imaginary).

To put all of the USA’s current financial plight down to its foreign policy would be pretty naive.

Topic: Serious Discussion / David Cameron

What will he bring?

Huge job losses, increased poverty, privatisation of the public sector providing worse service, increased inequality, social unrest, tax breaks for huge corporations but more tax for those who have the least amount of money.

Oh and the possibility of another recession with proposed spending cuts.

Hopefully the lib dems will stop the worst of the conservatives’ policies.

Topic: Serious Discussion / Obama Proposes: Schools Lose High-Calorie Drinks & Snacks

they’ve done this in england

or at least on a similar sort of note(ta jamie oliver)

it’s worked fine, and in some studies of it test scores have increased because kids are concentrating more during school due to a better diet

Yes, I’d much rather STV, although I’d settle for almost any form of PR over FPTP. I just wish there was a mainstream politician brave enough to suggest this, which obviously isn’t going to happen, since the two main parties benefit from the current arrangement.

nick clegg and the lib dems aren’t mainstream?

It’s a sad state of affairs that no one ever votes for who they actually want the most, but for who they hate/dislike the least.

this is almost inevitable with fptp

communism over capitalism, socialism over both probably

although i think there is a possibility that communism could work, looking at some elements in the soviet union, only some though

Topic: Serious Discussion / Will crime ever - stop?

Unless everything was legalised then I doubt it will ever happen.

The best way to reduce crime is probably to create an equal, classless society.

Topic: Serious Discussion / Expanding EU

There is nothing wrong with a unified europe, but I do not agree with how it is expanding the spectre of capitalism.

But if you’re a capitalist of any sort then unless you’re a racist, to be against the EU would seem quite perplexing.

See: The tory party, ukip.

(they’re xenophobes who have strange ideals about the british identity)
