  • Re: Japan gun control: why does it work??

    The fact that they are a homogeneous nation, people may be socially scolded for having guns. Plus police have way more power over in Japan. If I heard correctly, they can hold you for 48 hours if suspected of crime. That is going to cut down on crime rates. Plus the Japanese have a very socially permissive culture and are not as quick to snap, hence

  • Re: To My Fellow Libertarians,On Improvements Needed in the Movement.

    I can see one issue that can bring together anarchists in a local, grass roots way: Abandoned housing. State ownership of unused property is one devastating problem of social utility. Getting capitalist and socialist groups together to get these houses and properties torn down, rebuilt, bought/sold, used as shelters run by anarcho- socialist organizations

  • Re: Dollars New Design

    How much more "old and boring" bills do we need to print in order to pay for the making of "new and beautiful" ones?

  • Re: Michel Foucault

    Just finished the first book on The History Of Sexuality and it was interesting. His notion of Bio-Power and how the State has become an institution whose power has increased enormously through concern with preserving life rather then just threatening death upon the populace of their own or others. He said to some extent that anything can be justified

  • Re: Ron Paul wins CPAC presidential straw poll

    I think he should run, be taken seriously just to get elected and destroy all these agencies. Finding a principled VP to take his place would be the number one priority. Even if he was only president for a week that would be great.

  • Re: A Question for The Pro-Choicers on this Board

    There are not much arguments that cannibalism is wrong. The only major ethical problem would be the situation in which the cannibalism takes place. If done out of consent or after death it is fine. Murdering a person to eat them is wrong. The problem of when a fetus becomes a person and selling it for cannibalism does not matter. Murder is wrong, but

  • Re: A Question for The Pro-Choicers on this Board

    I would see no major problems with selling an aborted fetus. It is a disgusting premise, but if a woman wants to earn a living by growing fetuses to supply cannibal meat in a niche market, it would be her right. If i decided to cut off my arm and sell it to cannibals, it would be the same situation.

  • Agora:Cents Instead of Dollars

    I was thinking that since the dollar is going to crash in a year or two, people are going to need a quick source for money untill a new currency is established ( god forbid ) to trade goods. And I thought to myself... " Why not coins?" If the value of the USD is 3 cents, than a dollar in pennies is worth more. So why not use US coins as banking

  • Re: Existentialism anybody? Søren Kierkegaard?

    I would suggest The Concept Of Dread. I started reading Either/ Or and it was really confusing. Had good content but wasn't as "existential" as I had expected from what I had heard. A collection of his writings may be the best thing to start with.
