  1. Bitcoins have value for several reasons not the least of which is that gold cannot be sent instantly through your computer. Another aspect of its value is the ability to do business anonymously. further silver and gold have NO value just as bitcoins or salt or FRN's etc have NO value. A currencies only value is that you have it and someone else desires it. Currencies are a commdity which are bartered. In fact you might say that the only real definition of a currency is: The most bartered item within a community. There is also more than just a claim. The source code for bitcoins is open source
  2. Three words Free State Project.
  3. As an anarchist I think this video is good for the most part. It is right when it talks about those people who are not anarchists but use the name of anarchism to overthrow the existing system and install their own. The world has not however had anarchy for thousands of years. I find myself correcting people who say "look at somalia is that what you want? thats anarchy." No somalia is a tribalist country. What I really find interesting is when I bring up the idea of letting us (the anarchists) try our experiment. Let us have a plot of land and then have no government. Worst case scenario is we
  4. Disband the Military. Can anyone name a one twelve month time frame in which we have not had a major military action. I am of the opinion that governments are not a necessary evil (thomas paine) but instead are only evil. End war, Disband government.
  5. for those that are interested this is one of the best parts of the BTC economy. The BTC has a limit on how many BTC will ever exist. Like gold or silver the BTC must be mined. The total number of BTC and the number of users determines their value, but what is really important is that BTC are so divisible. There is a criticism that because they are not backed by anything they have no real value. This however does not understand the real definition of money. Gold and silver are trusted long existing money, but gold and sliver have no inherit
  6. It has been a while since I made a post but I would like to pick up on the bitcoin theme which I already posted on. Bitcoins (BTC) are making a rapid growth as well as changing the way people do business. Already there are sites out there which allow people to gamble online, buy and sell food, clothing, precious metals, and a number of other things. It is my belief that as the US dollar continues to fall more and more people will turn to the BTC as an alternative currency to collapsing global currencies. Whats more is the total anonymity which the BTC provides for i
  7. I think it is more a case of pointing out contradictions rather than downright errors. Do you think there exists a better political system than a democracy? Though this is off topic I will answer this question. Yes there are two better systems than democracy, The best system is the republicanism of early America.The next best system to republicanism is Monarchy. Why? Because there is a single neck to cut off when the government becomes overly oppressive. The worst part about democracy is that ALL democratic systems are in practice oligarchies, and the systems are set up in such a way as to
  8. Orthodox Atheism carries over Christian epistemology thinly veiled as science in its world view. This world view shapes the theories of the Orthodox Atheists. I do not believe that thought is supernatural, I do not believe that it is somehow connected with some higher or alternative universe. The crude materialism of the orthodox atheists however leaves a very bad taste in my mouth. I say crude because they speak of nature as Christians speak of god. If you can stomach it Paul I recommend "A moral animal" the author explicitly denies thought, and free will. The basic premise of the orthodox At

    The law has teeth in the form of guns, dungeons, whips, scourges, firing squads and so forth...; Morality is just noble word chopping. We all have idealistic notions of the way things OUGHT to be. We all have an intuitive notion of right and justice. But the law be it good or bad, just or unjust can make people bleed. Morality proposes. The Law disposes. Ba'al Chatzaf Baal this is one of the few times I actually agree with you. At heart i am an Anarchist, I just don't trust the other anarchists so in practice im a minarchist. The difference between my world view and most peoples
  10. I don't think I ever heard of a conspiracy theory from Alex Jones or Jeff Rense or Jesse Ventura that fits that description. They present what they think is evidence; obviously you don't think it's evidence because the evidence is not generally accepted. You mean like the 9/11 truthers claim about steel not melting? The real problem with people like Alex Jones and his ilk is that they de-legitimize actual conspiracies.

    You'd be lucky to have a choice. You can't imagine a better person to vote for than a sociopath dressed out in rationality? --Brant Emotions cloud judgement. The real problem is the definitions of sociopath. I do not want judges, police, or politicians with empathy or sympathy, I want judges, politicians, and police who's highest priority is justice, and by justice I mean the archaic definition of the word not the modern touchy feely definition. Eye for an eye, not eye for an apology.
  12. The card and the bitcoin are both fascinating to me. The card creates a local network to exchange information. The purpose with which the bitcoin people are putting it to use is to establish a decentralized alternative currency. The bitcoin is a completely digital currency with an inflation rate about equal to that of gold. Its extremely subversive because for several reasons. One reason is that it is not held in banks, and the currency CAN be used anonymously. When the cards come out in January the people behind the project are going to make a big push to get as many of the cards out as possi
