    And that is exactly why government can't be successful- its too greedy. Its the government that makes healthcare expensive in the first place. And there is nothing wrong with people charging whatever for their labor or product. Its their's and they can do whatever they want with it, but for them to be successful, they will have to lower the prices to competitive levels. You think everyone who sells stuff are so greedy, but its really not a reality (greed is what is helping everyone in the economy). These high prices are the result of government intervention. Only government can create and sustain monopolies.

    And you are forced to go to jail, and if you resist, you are injured. Therefore, taxation is theft because it is involuntarily taking your money. And it benefiting people is debatable because government is what causes wars, massive debt, ruining economies- the benefits are minimal.

    How can a free market be ineffective for the same reasons communism/socialism are? They are vastly different. in a truly free market, everyone is richer. It is the corporatist or Keynesian economics that cause class divides.

    well im not an anarchist, and this is where I agree with you. The only way anarchism can work is an educated mass of people who do not recognize the authority of the state. biologically and socially, people have never been in an anarchist society, so how can we expect people to like the idea?

    in a truly free market, that healthcare would be free or much cheaper. Doctors, before HMO's and government-run healthcare, would provide free care for the poor. If all government subsidies ended, do you think people would suddenly want to help these people?

    You are saying that you should hold people at gunpoint to pay for your healthcare? That is wrong.

    that might make you understand! if you have time, i would recommend it (of course, cause i wrote it)! xD

    Taxation is theft. It does not matter where the money goes (i recognize that it is theft, but I believe it is necessary). Taxation is slavery.

    You are saying that government needs to be larger and control our lives because there are more of us? That isn't freedom or for the people- that is against them. Government for the great majority of things it does is inefficient, overbearing, or ineffective. The free market can provide them all cheaper and better without force, but with voluntary trade.

    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/UC9KlNd086aOFK0bHmjCYqew

    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.

About Me

  • About gimmepie
    Quick Self-Introduction
    I'm gimmepie. My actual name is Daniel but I generally don't use that much around the forums. Feel free to leave a VM.
    Biography
    I've been around PC for a few years now and honestly I love it here. PC's grown to be oddly special to me over my years of using it an escape from real life and I've met a lot of great people and wonderful friends here. On PC you can typically find me in the Roleplay Theatre, Daily, Round Table, PC's Dubtrack room or The Underground. I often pop up in the Treehouse, Forum Games, Battling and Team building, the Lab or on our battle server too though. Basically I'm all over the place.

    Outside of PC I'm a competitive ballroom dancer and enjoy spending my time social dancing, training or teaching at the studio I attend. I'm also studying to achieve my Bachelor Degree of Education (Primary) and a Diploma of School Aged Education and Care whilst attempting to become a freelance writer. If there's anything else you want to know feel free to ask!

    PC Supporter since 2014 (Currently Crystal Tier)
    Moderator of the Roleplay Theatre since June 2015
    Moderator of the Round Table since September 2015
    Moderator of the Underground since January 2016
    Daily Staff since April 2016

    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.

Review Aloo - Hand Shakers

I just finished another recent anime, so have another review. Hand Shakers is an action series that sees pairs of people compelled to fight each other using strange weapons by the voice of God. The catch here, Hand Shaker pairs are heavily reliant on each other in combat to the point that they have to charge their power by holding hands.

I was instantly intrigued by the quirky premise behind Hand Shakers

Review Aloo - Seiren

I wanted to do a review of one of the most recent season's anime, which basically left me two choices since I've only seen two so far. I have decided to go with Seiren because I don't have much to critique about Kuzu no Honkai and it's boring if I only ever do positive reviews.

Seiren is a romance and comedy series with an unusual format. Rather than dedicate it's full twelve episodes to following one story, it instead rests at the end of each arc
