  • Re: How to determine demand in a socialist system

    Right. The baker counting how much bread people want doesn't answer the question of how much bread do they want considering the resources that must be diverted to produce the bread. That's the real question, right? What capital goods and land should be used to produce bread compared to other uses?

  • Re: Destroying Your Statist Arguments

    I've argued with statists in too many comment threads to count. Mostly on as Rothbardosaurus. Mention that you're an an-cap, and someone immediately brings up the US interstate highway system.

  • Re: Video Games

    I also just saw a preview of Fallout: New Vegas. It looks like it will be terrific. Indeed. It's going to be fantastic. Planescape: Torment, Baldur's Gate 1&2, Arcanum, Fallout 1&2 are some of the greatest RPGs of all time. Indeed here, too. Arcanum is a hugely underrated game. I say that despite its many flaws. It also features one

    More a Baldur's Gate or Ultima: Exodus person myself. Jap rpgs are just so wonky. Right on. Baldur's Gate II is one of my favorite RPGs.

    It would be exactly like telling a mobster he doesn't have authority to run his extortion ring. A barrel full of laughs.

    Did you guys even read the expatriation case? The court ruled that even if you're not a national, you're still under the jurisdiction of the state you reside in.
