Ans Toawa, you're not a conservative, you're a libertarian. You say you oppose public funding of abstract art, well, isn't it characteristic for a libertarian to oppose of public funding of just about everything (that doesn't shoot stuff). Compared to the general population on this board, I am. ;) ...

It's been explained; abstract art is often held at a low regard by conservatice-minded and authoritarian people. As the board's token conservative, let me take this opportunity to say that it's not abstract art that I hold in low regard, it's the funding of abstract art (and for that matter, any ar...

how the fuck am I like the most conservative one here? Don't worry, you're not anymore. Economy: 6.12 Social: -2 Remarkable close to Friedman's point, as they have it; probably why I like the guy so much. But I do agree that the questions have biases; some of them are worded in such a way as to tri...

Question

Ok, I'm trying to help out a friend/occasional employer, who among other things is looking for an artist to help him with, in his words, a "Manga style web template". I told him that he's probably not going to have much luck with his current attempts, because he's posting to the wrong crowd. The que...

There's also a biological basis for rape. Your point? I'm afraid I cannot elaborate more without doing some major thread necromancy. Suffice to say, this is a continuation of previous instances of this topic. (Edit: Which, now that I think about it, most of the previous people who I was "discussing...

I know about that kind of psychological imprinting, I'm just trying to figure out your point. Well, mostly it's a carryover from those last three times I've posted. Basically the point is that the "No Incest" social taboo is not a purely invented phenomenon; that there is a biological basis for it.

Well, if you didn't grow up with her, then the little note never gets written; it's been suggested that siblings who are raised apart will likely find each other very attractive because of genetic similarity.

Wait a second... Are you actually trying to suggest that living through an event makes a person better prepared to hypothesize the effects of a theoretical remedy? No, I'm not. You can believe that the sky is blue without ever having seen it, and be correct. But if you believe that the sky is green...

Don't suppose I could hope for a straightforward topic name for one of these polls. Though I'll admit #2 was close. I believe voting rights should be restored automatically at the end of the prison term, or perhaps the probation term. Why? Because I've always thought that the disenfranchisement pose...

Really...? Ceases to function? Such as fire protection...? Police protection...? Yes. Really. Police and fire protection aren't markets ; they are government run monopolies, which tend not to get too out of hand because most of them are controlled on a local level.

That's actually a pretty informative, well reasoned post. Thank you; I think that's the first compliment I've gotten on my economic views from this board in a very long time.

Well... depends on the plan. While I'll certainly agree that the specter is there... But certainly looming no larger than the health insurance we have now.

All I can say is, dude, that Germans lost their rights one at a time in the thirties. It doesn't happen all at once. Oh, that was well underway before the 30's came around. Theoretically foundational to any concept of freedom and liberty is, surprisingly not - as Toawa implies - the right of corpor...

Political jabs aside, I think there were statistics which showed a marked decrease in organ availability after they started passing mandatory helmet laws.

It wasn't my argument originally; I got it from a fellow libertarian who happens to be a pilot. And no, he can't get up and move around after take-off, he flies small aircraft.
