    Are you ok?

    Rich people who dont invest dont stay rich forever, or their family wont.

    thats pretty cool that you write your own raps! I would imagine it takes a really long time- or do you just think out loud and it comes naturally? Regardless, you seem to know the industry pretty well, which is great.

    Aren't you more truthful when you are drunk? idk lol

    lol. If I had to spend a ton of money on something, it would definitely be a large underground room only for myself. With a luxurious couch, 60" 4k television, pool table, bar, fridge, everything like that. Maybe a large fish tank because they look cool. Basically it would look really modern and stuff.

    Ya- you dont want to go bankrupt lol. How do you get into radio?

    Oh muk, sorry I haven't replied!!
    Yeah coke's definitely one of the worse drugs out there. I've done it once before and it's so easy to form a habit out of it since it doesn't really feel like you're getting psyducked up on it or anything, and then you don't like realise how bad it is for you until it's too late :/ I know some people who've made habits out of it and it's just depressing.

    Honestly, with hip hop especially, what you need to work on first is the quality of vocals. Like I know a lot of rappers who can make a good song, but their mic quality just destroys it. I've not really had experience making beats, so I'm kind of beat (ha...) there, but I can try and advise you if you tell me what you're stuck on, as I have a few mates doing production at uni

    I get what you are saying. When Im on my own, even if I ever get rich enough to afford the 5 bedroom house, I would only buy what is necessary for me, or for my family. My grandmother lived in poverty with many siblings (I forget how many, maybe 8) in a two bedroom home. They got by on the necessities, and they worked hard. And the family rose out of poverty. But if they had bought what they wanted, there is no way they could have done it.

    Good thing is, the rich people that do not invest, lend, or start companies to employ people are generally weeded out (except like pop stars and stuff). And when they dont (people usually do not stay rich forever), you are right- they do not survive the "dog eat dog" world.

    Exactly. Basically that, but without purposely defecting children and living off the government. I could see how that would bankrupt the government, but a free society would not be able to get off the ground after the government ends... if it does. So Agorism and refusing to pay with the current currency is the way to go. And waking others up (i know it sounds cliche, but whatever). Advocate for peaceful parenting.

    Of course they would! because the politicians gain money, and use other people's money to pay for this (the taxpayer)! I dont think its trillions, but its certainly a lot.

    I think its more of a "i scratch your back, you scratch mine" sort of deal with the government and corporations rather than one controlling the other. Corporations are still subject to demand, as well as banks. If people lose confidence in the currency, it changes everything.

    Im pretty sure big pharmacies lobby to keep marijuana illegal because then they can make more money for PTSD meds and such.

    The unfortunate thing is people want them to be regulated, but the issue is, the corporations make the regulations. That is why the get bigger and richer as regulations increase.

    Unemployment is ridiculous right now. And if there were more people participating in the labor force, unemployment would soar. We need to keep more money in the economy, destroy corporations and big banks, and Federal Reserve if we are going to great jobs.

    Also the war on drugs hurts a lot. It disproportionally hurts... have you noticed rich people dont seem to go to jail for drugs? Drugs should not be a crime (its victimless!!!) because as soon as someone has that on their record, they can't get a job. No one wants to hire them just because they went to jail, and it also looks bad for their company if they do. So, in turn, crime rate goes up.

    That tax is the nail in the coffin. If $11.40/hour isn't enough, $8.00 in hour definitely isn't. How about we also focus on getting rid of the wage taxes? And property tax? And sales tax? All of these take a huge portion out of the paycheck (in addition to the hidden tax of inflation). Even if the person is not property-owning, their rents will go up with property tax, so that tax indirectly affects them. And rent is expensive enough. http://www.rentistoodamnhigh.org < there is even a political party for this lol.

    Idk what the exact "living wage" is, but I thought it was $10? Ill research it.

    The wealth gap in the US is absolutely terrible! The only reason $48,000 is the average is because of the top percent. The average poverty rate is 15.2%, which is crazy high, and is even higher in different areas. The system is not designed to help people out of poverty, but keep them in there. Min. wage jobs are supposed to be a stepping stone, but its becoming a living. This is deplorable.

    Yep. $10,000 a year is less than half of the poverty rate (I believe its $23,000 a year).

    Ok doing some math:

    https://aspe.hhs.gov/2015-poverty-guidelines

    For one person, the poverty line is $11,000.
    $11,770 divided by 52 weeks = $226 a week. $226 divided by 40 hours = $5.70/hour

    That seems really low... can you double check the calculation?

    Exactly. If only the government privatized the hunting grounds, fishing spots, etc, there would be no reduction in the population of whatever species. And it would actually make fishing profitable for the fishers, and cheaper for the consumers. Instead, they are more poor than they should be because they have to fish equally during surplus fish season, and the seasons with much less fish. And there is a reduction in fish populations because its a free-for-all sort of deal. Fish the heck out of the lake/river/ocean or get out of a job. When privatized, the water owners (either if the fishers own the water or others) have an incentive to keep the fish population up. And the ironic thing is, regulation of the business is meant to protect the environment lol.

    Minimum wage isn't meant to be sustainable in the long term, but people also forget most people get off minimum wage within a year (as productivity increases), and that people in poverty only work 16 hours a week per family. And this is largely because of the welfare state that people do not have to work to make a living. The welfare state is intended by the rich to create a dependent class (people dont realize the rich get richer as the welfare state grows, and actually want it), rather than what its intention should be- to help people get off the ground if they lost their job, are sick, whatever. It should be a helpful temporary protection.

    They will probably get him for illegal collection of rainwater and for illegal fishing. And hunting without a permit.

    Government is made up of individuals, and like the rest of us humans, are selfish. Have you seen the studies of people who gain a leadership position to control others? Scary crap.

    At the current minimum wage, it puts you about $2-3,000 above the poverty level with a full time job. Without these laws and regulations and taxes, people would be so much richer. People could focus more on parenting and spending, raising productive people.

    This is what happens:

    1) Government builds roads and employs x amount of people (lets assume its with taxes)

    2) there wasnt a demand, but people are happy because x amount of people were employed

    3) businesses and homes are built around these roads

    4) people suddenly like roads and think they are impossible without government, forgetting the x amount of jobs lost in the private sector because of the roads. They also have less money to spend, so increased wealth cannot be created. Instead, there has been a loss because the people lost money on roads they didnt demand for in the first place.

    5) People may or may not demand for roads, and government may or may not build them. If they do, it does not know where to place them, how much to price them, how to appeal to everyone, etc. Now people are an indefinite cycle of overpaying for roads at times, and underpaying roads at different times. And now less people can be employed in other markets, this market (roads), and innovation in roads/natural price drops do not occur.


    And this is the best case scenario assuming the roads are up kept and stuff, and 100% of the taxes allocated to roads went to the reads (real average would only be 30%). And assuming the government does not borrow or print any money.

    I would argue his tent was his property, and public property is an oxymoron. It breaks every law of philosophy and rights. The government does not have the rights to it.

    The hypocrisy is great here: Its to protect the environment! *drivers giant bulldozer through forest to knockdown a tent and fences* This is ridiculous!

    The problem with jobs after college is that a college degree isn't worth nearly as much as it used to. And people dont have the experience to raise their wages/get higher wages off the bad. Wages are tied in with productivity, and college and high school are not giving these people any economic value to raise productivity!

    And these resources dont exactly have a demand either. Its a waste of money because it isn't trade- trading makes both sides wealthier, but this only makes one side more poor and the other (government) is broke anyways. This is why we need privatized infrastructure!

    If the population could use alternative currency, this would be amazing. We would be so much closer to not being slaves.

    And then they claim to fight for rights lol
