Communal ownership + communal co-operation would solve all of the problems presented in the video and more.


If you think that can work start a joint BitCoin bank service with other geeks on this site. There will not be much depositors I tell thee!

The average man is taxed 70% if you include sales tax, property tax, income tax, and inflation tax, and increased price of goods because business have to pay the taxes mentioned above including the higheer wages of the employees who have to pay the taxes menti...

I do wonder though if maybe the video in the OP is presenting a false dichotomy. It assumes that the existance of overgrazing is an inevitability, rather than a result of private landlords who own excessive amounts of land thus reducing the carrying capacity for everyone else. Perhaps rather than t...

I am more sympathetic to the concerns of socialism but ultimately any system which advocates the continuation of price system based economics is doomed to failure, capitalism included. The price system (any system using currency in lieu of a tangible trading standard) only works when production is ...

The person who invented "tragedy of the commons" is the person who advocated mass genocide in the name of stopping overpopulation and yet he sired six children, was it? By the way, ever heard of "negative externalities"? Corporation X owns some land and essentially destroys the area around it in or...

Lets say a bank account has 10k in it and it earns 30% interest yearly and that bank account is shared amongst 30 people in a small town. 1. How do you think it effects incentives to save. 2. How do you think it effects incentives to withdraw money. 3. Would it work if we had a banker who forces us...

Could the problem of the government be that it is a collection of shared resources and money. Wouldn't trying to share resources and money be like having a joint bank account. Imagine it. Lets say a bank account has 10k in it and it earns 30% interest yearly and that bank account is shared amongst 3...

Socialism. Capitalism basically excuses oppression, inequality, nepotism and victim blaming. However I don't like how vengeful socialist nations have turned out to be in so many cases. But one them is non violent. http://static.giantbomb.com/uploads/original/1/19306/1248309-180px_homer_angry.gif No...

I have a feeling that when god does something questionable such as killing etc, Satan does not appear to appose it.

As I understand the Bible, Satan can only affect what people do if they let him in. In this case, I believe he would have been convincing everyone that Noah was delusional and they shouldn't board his ark.


If I was Satan, I would of told the the people to kill noah.

During the flood killed the majority of life on Earth, where was the Satan. If I am aware, Satan will try to do everything opposite to what God does. Would he try to stop the floods from happening. Or start a campaign that God is wicked for starting the floods.
