OK, you want the real answer? The background checks do absolutely FUCK-ALL. The only thing that has been proven to work is making the criminals and mentally ill afraid to even THINK about chimping out. Instant 20 year sentences with no parole for crimes committed with weapons, and death sentences if you so much as brush the guy with your gun while you're robbing him. Enforcement and harsh punishments is what works when it comes to preventing more crime. Period. End of discussion.

As someone who scores -2.5, -2.5 on the chart consistently here's the jist of it. Government interventions ruin nearly everything they touch. High government involvement in economics would be the purple square

If government had stayed out of marriage law, for instance, it would have remained a religious issue. Gay marriage wouldn't exist except in a religion that chose to accept them. Alimony would not exist and people would be discouraged from divorce via their community.

The flip side of this is that I believe gays should be allowed to do what they want, but also that I should be able to call them faggots and be able to refuse them service for being fags without being thrown in jail

cyber. Everyone has their own special cyber VR safespace where they all do what they want as we are cared for by the machines with ruthless mechanical effeciency. Basically when neo wakes up from the matrix except perhaps the machines don't need us for food and are perhaps not sentient.

One way to interpret this chart on the vertical axis is more negative rights on the bottom (freedoms), while on the top more positive rights exist (entitlements).

few to no one can compel you to do anything. everyone has their own island to make into paradise on their own. Sometimes a few islands band together to combat loneliness.

Castro was commie, therefore top left

Brody Richardson

However, libertarian policies aren't necessarily social. My interpretation of social policies are ones where resources are redistributed evenly among people. Without an authority to continuously redistribute resources, people who are better at managing resources would naturally end up with more, and the economy would become capitalist.

Government funding is less efficient then the private sector and government funding causes a crowding out effect which limits the private sector's funds. That means that if you have more government funding for science, you will usually get less science. Just look how much funding communist countries put into science and look how much it doesn't help them (they end up stealing tech created by capitalist countries with less state funded science).

The only situations in which government funded and non government funded sciences existed in unison, even when they had a low immediate profit, the government funded projects created less advancement than those that were not.

I.E. it's nowhere near as difficult to build a fucking rocket that works properly as it is to build a fucking hypercomputer the size of my fingernail. The government with 100 billion in funding couldn't do the former, the free market with essentially no funding did the latter.

Anyone who doesn't understand the green square is fucking retarded and doesn't know anything about politics. It's about using the state where the state is efficient and using business where business is efficient. It creates the most freedom for the most amount of people. The reason why it doesn't last is because it's fair and their is always some Jew trying to rig the system in their favor and they have a bunch of right-wing cucks who suck their dicks for it, give them tax breaks for fucking everyone and sending my hard earned tax dollars to Israel.

This is how Qi Xi Huangdi became the first emperor of China. His state of Qi was in a constant state of war with all the other states in the Warring States Period.

Because of this discipline Qi was able to take over all the other states and unite China and completeley btfo Confucious.

Grew out of it once i was 20 lad and realized that the Paris Commune were a bunch of LARP'ing autists, whose only reason for existence in today's world is because their legacy was willing to wait until everyone was sick and tired from a massive war and engage in a whole new kind of class war to span entire continents in bloodshed for a priori assumptions on human behavior.

Usually companies which do that tend to get lazy and let their quality of services or goods slip.

Existential costs.

Checked. Roads, military, the justice system, etc. Also social programs would be a lot more effective if they were constantly getting threatened to be defunded in the favor of private businesses. Capitalism also has sweet spots and have a public option also eliminates the effects of market saturation.

The government isn't a violent monopoly, you're just fucking retarded.

That's the point of the state. People pursuing their own private interests will eventually end up with them treading on someone else's. The best way to stop this is to ask the people who are being effected by this which is easy to do through democracy. The states main purpose is to create a set of rules that are agreed on by the populace. Democracy gives the state the power to become bigger or smaller depending on what the people who reside under it want. If a business is someway hurting the populace then I have no problem with the government showing up with guns to stop them, that's what the government is for.

I don't know how democracy works the post.

No, but the only "anarchist" that it applies to are ancoms, and mutualists, and various other idiotic "I tell you what to do because I wish my parents raised me better" fantasy nonsense.

They never were Ancap in the firstplace, or were simply virtue signalling, which is just an extension of not really holding any true philosophical beliefs.

The government isn't a violent monopoly

Is the only thing that is allowed to use violence to enforce it's subjective and arbitrary beliefs and wants

It is a monopoly on violence

Thought generally helps.

An ideologie should be built upon and expanded and corrected if you notice some issue you did not consider before.

translated for non autists

if you think you are wrong just make bold excuses for your ideology until you are right

No, but the only "anarchist" that it applies to are ancoms, and mutualists, and various other idiotic "I tell you what to do because I wish my parents raised me better" fantasy nonsense.

the 19th century was the period that ushered in anarchism as a popular revolutionary idea, before that you had only a few microcosms of the idealogy in Europe and China, none of which could be called "true anarchism" by today's LARP'ers. Sorry if that bothers your autism.

Spain was the only chance and the CNT fucked up everything for everyone.

you're a larper because the word anarchism was used before your version of anarchism

What a surprise, a larper calling someone who actually has philosophical principles and beliefs a larper, I never would have expected a closet leftist to project their opinion of themselves onto others, that never happens.

Oil, coal, steel, rail roads, etc where all natural monopolies at least in one point in time in history. Rockefeller actual built his wealth off of a natural monopoly. The only reason why you don't hear about them today is because the government has been actively breaking them up. Also natural monopolies are a hell of a lot hard to break up than artificial ones.

Nice digits and decent response but I disagree because it depends on the monopoly. I currently work for a company that has 9/10ths of a monopoly and we only have one major competitor. We control production, distribution, recycling, etc and it all happened naturally without government interference. All it took was smart investing. Our competitor can't keep up because they only control production. This allows us to control prices. We actually produce all the competition that isn't our competitors brand to make more money off of the illusion of choice.

I do agree that it's the government's job to stop people treading on other's liberties, but liberties of one group shouldn't come at the expense of the liberties of another. Businesses can't force people to buy their stuff or sign their contracts. I do agree that if a business lies or withholds information then the state should penalise them since it's tantamount to theft/deception and the state punishes that anyways. But if a company openly says "this product will hurt you" and people still buy it and it hurts them, then the state shouldn't penalise the company since they didn't do anything wrong.

No i just realized that anarchists were a bunch of purity spiralling spergs even worse than the white nationalists so i left "the movement" completely. Just a bunch of sarcastic twits going on and on about esoteric literary references and an idealogy that has 0 connection to the needs of the working class besides whatever LARP'ing self made idea of the working class ought to be is theirs.

I think it's totally fair if a business develops and maintains a monopoly through good business practices. But if the price of a resource is too high, then customers could easily end up rationing their resources since it's cheaper. This would mean they buy less often which would lead to lower profits for the business in question.

a monopoly that was never anywhere near a complete monopoly,
Did you not read the second part of my post about the company I work for? My company has 9/10ths of a monopoly and we have a distinct advantage over anyone who wants to compete.

and was not detrimental.
Except it was. Pretending it wasn't doesn't make it so. If ignoring facts facts is the only way you can make your ideology work then I have some bad news for you.

Now then, name me a single natural monopoly that was ever detrimental in any way whatsoever.
OIL

Almost all of the oil companies had natural monopolies at least one point in time. Are government is bought out by big oil, we fight wars for big oil to make money off of us. Go look it up for yourself. Exxon, Shelf, Standard have all been natural monopolies at least one point in time.
