    [–] Trump Violates Constitution and Undermines America’s Safety with Emergency Declaration Jamesshrugged 1 points ago in politics

    Agreed. The hypocrisy of both parties is stunning, but the cognitive dissonance of the population at large required to keep either of these parties in power is nearly incomprehensible in the face of the type of opportunism displayed by situations like this.

    Most of the planet has never heard of anarcho capitalism. What you said is what communists think (or what their propaganda finds convenient for narrative purposes).

    My conception of communists is based on the fact that over 100 million people were murdered last century by single party communist regimes in 14 different countries. Millions more were imprisoned, tortured, censored, and forced into slavery in gulags and work camps.

    That’s what you choose to associate yourself with when you call yourself a communist, so don’t be superseded when people hate your guts and what nothing to do with you. It’s the exact same as calling yourself a Nazi, and speaks volumes about your character, the same way calling yourself a Nazi does: shitty person.

    You choose who you associate with. That’s the association I have with the ideology. Communists = untrustworthy liars. If you don’t want that association, don’t associate with them.

    [–] Chuck Schumer, senator on the banking committee, brought Ross Ulbricht back to his home state so his own people could railroad Ross, doing the bidding of his finance industry paymasters. Fucking bastard. Jamesshrugged 1 points ago in Objectivism

    You realize that makes it worse not better right? That’s why it’s a cartel, it’s a set of private banks with a legal monopoly.

    And yes, I use crypto, but in the US you are required to accept the US dollar if you run a business.

    Again, I didn’t say that money is bad. I said the government monopoly via “legal tender” is bad.

    You’re an autist.

    1) I never said anything about taking away the banks right to privacy and property

    2) banks are not free market when there is literally a government ran cartel of banks headed by the federal reserve with the legal authority to print its monopoly currency.

    You seem to have some kind of muddled abstract idea about the state of the banking industry in the US today. Probably read Frisco’s speech and think it literally applies to today’s context. Like an autist.

    Nothing you say is credible because you’ve chosen to align yourself with an ideology that has constantly been shown to use lies and propaganda and so can’t be trusted.

    That’s his point.

    Do you ask “why?”

    [–] After Winning a $15 Minimum Wage, Fast Food Workers Now Battle Unfair Firings Jamesshrugged 1 points ago in Objectivism

    As predictable as the closing of borders in a socialist country to keep high earners from fleeing taxation.

    [–] Judge rules against Walmart for firing employee with medical marijuana card Jamesshrugged 0 points ago in politics

    You used welfare queen as an insult, like being on welfare is a bad thing. But you actually support welfare?

    I bet the van was like “it’s fine, it will hit that other car” and then the Tesla stopped instead.

    [–] The Perils of Trying to Use Emergency Powers to Build Trump's Wall Jamesshrugged 2 points ago in Objectivism

    Have you looked at the list of executive orders granting additional powers in case of a declaration of emergency?

    It’s very long and includes take overs of most industries and transportation.

    Could he now declare martial law to get the border staffed by us troops?
