again, you're saying a lot of nothing. are you trying to convince me of your point of view, or are you just here to pontificate? because a refusal to engage isn't going to convince me of anything. you've done exactly what i predicted you would: you've ignored the individual points that contradict w

you're saying nothing. "he made that money" does not prove that he "deserves" billions of dollars.

I don't have to prove that he "deserves" anything other than equal protection under the law. The money is his because because of the vast and complex network of voluntary agreements in which every

"owning" a company or the private property that accompanies it isn't work and doesn't add value...

Yes it is and yes it does! The owner is responsible for being the public face of a company, and is ultimately responsible for the direction that company takes. A good owner, for which we can includ

"Impeachment will assure Trump's reelection"
Politics & Religion

Predicting election outcomes is like alcoholism. It's always with regret that I swear off ever doing it again, but then I go back on my word at the nearest available opportunity.

Trump could certainly lose, but it seems like the off chance. I remain convinced that the Republicans will pay dearly

EDIT: better explanation: i make a t-shirt. it sells for $20. that $20 (minus the cost of supplies) is mine. porky pig doesn't get to steal his cut.

Stop over-analyzing vague questions on a political test Famov.

Never!

and yet — serious question — you don't find it tyrannical to steal the value of a worker's labor?

What determines the value of a worker's labor? Theft implies that something was taken from someone involuntarily. If

Anyone that answers less than "Strongly Agree" for "Inheritance is a legitimate form of wealth." is a communist and a tyrant and in opposition to the very foundation of our civilization. What is the alternative to that question? That inheritance isn't a legitimate form of wealth? That the sta

Trump supporters, why do you still support Trump?
Politics & Religion

There are a variety of reasons why Trump supporters may not be discouraged by his tenure as president, not all of which are necessarily flattering. One of the greatest indictments of the Trump presidency came in the form of Jim Mattis' superficially cordial resignation letter, and is just one exampl

I've played about ~20 hours of daggerfall (99% blind of course) and I have a bunch of gripes with it but I do enjoy the scale of it and the monstrous dungeons are growing on me. The game feels more like a 3d roguelike than anything else.

Actually playing the thing requires having the constituti

I think you're right to identify how Game Theory and other youtubers has changed the conversation on Majora's Mark, though it's ascendant popularity was something that had been brewing for years even before that. Hylian Dan published The Message of Majora's Mask on

Resident Evil 3 Remake Baby!
Video Game News & Discussions

I'm not sure anyone does remakes as proficiently (or as frequently) as Capcom. I don't really play horror games, but I remember from the Gamecube years how adored "REmake" was. Compare and contrast with, say, Square Enix, who I fear will ultimately end up discarding far too much of what makes FF7 in

Well, this isn't a lie about the school system in America

I feel this strange impulse to run to the defense of our education system, but at the same time I vote "no" on every millage to increase funding. It's funny how that works.

The purpose of the public school system is to impart our children with the skills necessary to engage productively with our

What was the point of that if not what seems to be you trying to be as insulting as you can be in a way that you can get away with? The difference here seems to be Poptart doesn't try to hold back or hide what he's saying just so he can get away with it.

And you are perennially disappointing.

Are you seriously unaware of how ridiculous it is to say that my opinions seem demonic? Is it inconceivable to you that I would be (mildly!) incredulous with my response? There's no point waiting for an answer, because I know that you have enough of a grasp

Now that I think about it, I'm pretty sure Famov wrote exactly the opposite thing.

In fact, I wrote something very similar to that in the PSL thread just moments ago! People are capable of incredible things, and I don't really think that my view of human nature is all that pessimistic, but it's

i'm one of those people who view it as unfriendly, if not outright demonic. could you shed some light on how you think it's friendly?

One wonders if Carlin ever had the self awareness to be embarrassed of his association with the counterculture, even as it became mainstream and developed its own set of paradoxical social mores.
