    Anarchy has never been tried. It was tried in Ireland in the 1000's and it worked. I need to do more research on it tho. Other than that case, true anarchy has never been tried on a large scale (barring Quakers and such). Anarchy can't work because of curved power lines. Anarchy can only work when the people no longer find the need to be ruled and have a flat power line. I can send you a link describing the Powerline theory in more detail if you want!

    The government interference abandons the poor. Welfare hurts them more than it helps them, which is really unfortunate. In a true free market (where the government is not making the rich richer through subsides, etc), the corporations can never form and the Fed can't print money to devalue the poor's money. The lack of government influence is not abandoning the poor, but actually helping them, or preventing them from being poor in the first place.

    Did you read my essay yet? I forgot two statistics in there that I want to add.

    Not to mention taxation is theft on a mass scale, so "not abandoning the poor" requires violence.

    Just because the government is small does not mean it will collapse. It means the system is flawed because it must grow larger. The US is an example. We started as a Minarchy (more or less), and it has grown into this large government where it interferes with the economy and personal lives.

    I think anarchy could work if society began that way. But after hundreds of years of rules, I do not know how well it could really work. And it depends on the kind of anarchy...

    Basically the only government provided services are military protection, courts, and police. Its only role is to protect the rights of the citizens and nothing else. There is extremely minimal taxation and the majority of the power is decentralized.

    Thanks! I may be doing it tonight or tomorrow night, so yea. AnCaps identify themselves as Voluntaryists much of the time because people sort of discredit them as soon as they hear the "anarchy" part.

    Im a Minarchist now, and he will be trying to convert me lol. Im certainly open to the idea; I just worry about the practical applications. Although by not being AnCap, Im a huge hypocrite lol (in regards to my faith as a Christian and my secular philosophy).

    You think it's a case of natural selection choosing the tasmanian devils to go extinct? How is Tasmania going to fare without its primary predator, since another species, the tasmanian tiger, also went extinct despite claims of seeing a live one in recent years?

    The reason behind it is that there's a rare incurable cancer that's killing off the species, including the healthy ones that were released back into the wild, in Tasmania. They plan a trial reintroduction into the mainland of Australia, which was the species original homeland before being wiped out a long time ago. This video goes into full detail on how the reintroduction would work, and it has been compared to how the environment in Yellowstone drastically changed for the better when wolves were reintroduced into that area.

    So my political views are changing a bit. I will actually be on a call with a political youtuber and I believe he will most likely be recording. I am putting together a list of questions to ask him. Here is his channel:

    https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC9K...aOFK0bHmjCYqew

    Ill be asking him questions about Anarcho-Capitalism. if you have any questions, can you give them to me? I might put it in there. Ill be focusing on subjects like courts, police, military, applications of the N.A.P (non-aggression principle), and the Powerline theory. Basically how these things will work in a world without the government.

    My club actually does ceramics as a way to raise money. We do it through the school (we got permission). But im the guy running it, so I dont get to participate as much. But I guess it can still count as a hobby.

About Me

  • About gimmepie
    Biography
    Hi whoever is reading this

    I'm gimmepie (obviously not my actual name, but I prefer not to use that on PC). I'm 19 years old, have high-funtioning autism and am an Australian. Currently I am studying Primary School Education at university and I work somewhat casually as a ballroom dance coach at my studio.

    This is my third year now as a member of PC and I thoroughly enjoy it here. You can primarily find me typing up a storm in the Roleplay Corner or quite often sharing my love of music in the song-rating thread in Forum Games but I tend to pop up in all kinds of places.

    I like to think I'm a friendly guy, albeit stubborn and opinionated, so if you feel like talking just drop me a VM or PM and I'll probably reply as soon as I see it.

    PC Supporter since 2014 (Currently Crystal Tier)
    Moderator of the Roleplay Theatre since June 2015
    Moderator of the Round Table since September 2015

    Most RPs GM'd at once: Six (I'm pretty sure that's a record but I dunno)
    Interests
    My interests are pretty varied and they keep me sane when I'm supposed to be studying.

    As I said before I teach at my local ballroom studio, I also train there myself as I am also a competitor. Dancing is one of the most important parts of my life.

    I also love music, a very wide range of it too. I listen to everything from Rock to rap to country. My favourite band is Linkin Park but there are many other artists I love (far too many to list here so VM me if you're curious).

    Pokemon has been a part of my life since I was about six. My first game was Pokemon Stadium for the N64 and I watched the anime religiously. These days I'm still in love with the franchise and I buy the main series games whenever they come out. I also sometimes battle on PCs Showdown server. These days I'm not as fond of the anime, but I haven't seen X/Y yet so I don't know.

    I am a big lover of improvisational and stand-up comedy. I am arguably the biggest fan of Whose Line Is It Anyway in my country and I spend hours watching it and stand-up shows. I often consider giving stand-up a shot, but I struggle to be funny on cue and I don't have a very good stage presence.

    I'm not much of a gamer, but I do enjoy a bit of gaming sometimes. My favourite game is The Last of Us but Starcraft 2 is a close second.

    I am an anime lover and, unlike Western shows with which I am very picky about genre, I will watch almost any genre. My favourite anime of all time is Higurashi no Naku Koro ni.

Weekly Music Mince

It's the end of the week again which means it's time for another Music Mince, this time flavoured with some actual thought about each song according to the original format I used.

I've been listening to a lot of music this past week so it was really hard to narrow things down to ten choices, but here they are. Enjoy!



Number One
Song: Not Strong Enough
Artist: Apocalyptica ft. Brent Smith

Will Teach For Money

Well as a lot of you are aware, I'm currently studying to become a teacher... or at least I should be. Truth be told though, six months of this year are going to have equated to exactly zero study due to my university messing things up. During my last study period they lost my enrolment - there goes three months of uni - and this study period they managed to enrol me for the next SP instead of the current one.

This has put in a bit of a predicament.

Post-Performance

As many of you likely know at this point (since I haven't shut up about it for so long), this Saturday passed was the day of a fundraising event at my dance studio in which the available members of our competitive team performed show dance numbers as entertainment.

The numbers consisted of a rumba to Ed Sheeran's Thinking Out Loud, performed by one of our team members and his younger sister (his partner was away), a gothic themed New Vogue medley to

So Close to Show Time

So as I have mentioned before, September marks the month that my dance partner and I will debut as a partnership. We've been working very hard and things are coming along quite nicely, so I'm optimistic about the future right now and really hyped to get the show on the road.

Our first competition will be on the 20th of September, a competition that is already set to mark an influx of new couples in our division. I'm really happy to see the field
