Yes. In fact, just about everyone is dishonest, whether Democract or Republican. And yes, including university professors. The lamest thing about this society based on competition is that somebody always has to lose. So too afraid to be out of a job, professors have to invent random topics, just to have funding, or they'd lose it to some other professor. So they hide their own research for as long as possible, and finally release it when it's done, just to claim all the credit. The professor that comes in second loses. Why does this happen? Lack of democracy. If professors THEMSELVES decided where to distribute funds, then they'd be forced to debate which projects were more worthy, thereby "forced" to educate all the other researchers in the process. Democracy forces cooperation.

Debt is nothing but welfare given by the loaner to the loanee in hopes that it will get back something in return.

Correct on both counts. The "Right of Use" can exist only in one of two ways. Through agreement, or through coercion. Laws reflect agreement. Enforcement reflects coercion. If a law does not have to be enforced, then THAT is when true agreement has been reached. The problem with our justice system is that agreement is never reached.

Face it, the only thing you were going to do with those numbers was just look at it. And on the day you die, you'll say, "See? See? I got the most points!" Why DO people save money anyway?

So they hoard it all and invest in companies that make those little umbrella things that you put in mixed drinks. And what happens to medical research? Nothing. What happens to medical training?

Whether this resurrection is true is not what is important. The reason Christianity has survived so long as a philosophy is that it gives its followers the courage to stand up against oppression, the courage to protect the powerless. The belief in the greater good of God is similar to evolution's greater good for society. Those philosophies that promote altruism and cooperation are more fit to survive.

If it gives them the morale boost to keep working, then fine. At least it keeps entertainers employed. 2. Charity. This can either go to useful ones, like education and research, or relatively useless ones, like saving whales, or feeding hungry children that are then denied an education. 3. Waste. Equivalent to throwing money into the fire. They hire lots of workers to go work on some lame-brained project that's doomed to failure. Wasting everyone's time and effort. 4. Stocks, bank, bonds, etc. The value of this investment would depend on who's handling the money. Whether the broker invests in entertainment, education, lame-brained ventures, etc. The effect of a minimum wage hike can indeed cause inflation. Like an upper class tax cut will cause inflation in the products that the upper class buys. An upper class tax HIKE would, in fact, cause DEFLATION in upper class goods, and possibly bring the middle class into the same market. However, all this mucking with numbers does little to directly move society forward. What REALLY moves society forward is knowledge. Knowledge that results from teaching and learning. Knowledge that should not be hidden behind trade secrets, patents, or copyrights.

Unless, of course, one of these monopolies were run like a representative democracy. As a businessman, how much of your expenditure must be wasted on marketers and lawyers instead of production, research, and morale building? Without a monopoly, you are forced to hire your own marketing and legal departments simply because your competition is doing the same thing. The Great Capitalist Arms Race. Waste of time? You bet.

Competition is not against the very point of civilization. YOUR > view of competition is what is against the very point of civilization. I note: Simplistic answers don't work here. Competition can bring out the best in people if there is some agreement - cooperation clearly - regarding which goals are desirable and which are not desirable, and if rules are established and enforced to ensure the former and prevent the latter. If the Oakland Raiders brought guns on the playing field and threatened to shoot any Viking player who interfered with them, the Raiders would win. The Vikings could bring guns as well next time, and perhaps waylay the Raiders in their locker room prior to the game. This behavior is illegal, but only so by common agreement. The second issue is what to do with winners and losers. Typically a prize goes to the winners - certainly they are given or can take something desirable - the resources to continue training and positive reinforcement and motivation. This is generally expected and only due in the opinion of many. Losers? In the extreme of the Roman circus or warfare they are killed, or perhaps they only lose all of their resources. In modern professional sports teams may lose for years but maintain their resources, or through the rules of the draft and the interests of investors increase their resources because they have lost - because a desirable goal is to maintain a certain level of competitiveness in spectator sports or because the investors can still profit. Contrast this with industrial competition where a loser - Apple for instance - may be driven out of business and all it's resources taken. Also, it is not a simple game - the rules are poorly defined, and there are various objectives among the employees, stockholders, and other considerations which are not subject to general oversight and approval. If IBM's government contacts prevent Apple from selling products to the government regardless of the relative merit of the product, Apple loses. If IBM has the resources to give away thousands of computers to schools so that students are trained on them, while Apple lacks these resources, Apple loses regardless of the merits of their product. From IBM's standpoint this is fine. From the consumer's standpoint perhaps not. Within a corporation, an individual may stand out above others because of his abilities to do his job. A manager may resent this, and look at the more capable employee as a threat to his own position, and work to eliminate the employee by denying him the resources to do his job. The rest of the company, with no knowledge of the situation because their information is filtered by the manager, loses. The competent individual who loses his job may not only lose his resources, thus his ability to compete, but may be prevented from accumulating new ones if the society is set up to maximize the ratio of qualified workers to jobs. This latter situation could be exacerbated if the manager feels it's to his or her interest to spread detrimental information about the guy to other potential employers who may be otherwise aware of his merits. In these cases the unequal distribution of resources is used to the detriment of individuals and societies in the competition for resources. As the stakes become higher due to polarization, our societies become more like gladatorial arenas for those with equivalent resources, or competition disappears entirely if resources are monopolized. In short, it's probably better to think a little bit before mouthing off too much. MAF

Whether it crashes hardly matters because they're just numbers in computers. Everything that we REALLY need to be productive is still here: people, ideas, raw materials. So what happens if it DOES crash? Three solutions: 1. FDR's route. Invent semi-useful jobs for everyone to do. New art, new weapons, etc etc. Everyone's employed, everyone's happy. Sort of the "communist" version of a centrally planned economy. 2. Hitler's route. Forced labor camps. Conquer other countries, to steal their "valuables" (art, gold, etc). Pay people with art and gold, until nobody wants all that useless shit anymore, and the economy collapses. 3. Get rid of all the useless jobs. Take the money that used to be wasted on their salaries, and use it to provide both welfare AND education for them. It becomes their "job" to produce new knowledge for everyone. A democratic centrally planned economy. Of course, this will put a lot of economists out of work, but that's OK. They get to be scholars too.

And that's why people live in poverty while the rich can go buy chemicals to grow peach fuzz on their bald heads. Capitalism creates crime. In a country with universal health care, a guaranteed education, and a guaranteed job, there's no reason to go out and rob someone of a handful of green paper. As for North Korea, communism was never achieved. Inequality between rich and poor still existed because no one was able to vote thieves out of office. The reverse is true in this country because the rich are able to buy their way into office.

Communism ( USA, CHINA,N. KOREA etc) incourages poverty. Standard of living defined by what? Number of "different" colas you can buy? Number of different colors underwear comes in?

Who currently makes a living out of the drug trade? Pushers, enforcement officers, farmers who need to make a living overseas, manufacturers for the "tools" used by both sides. Just take all the money that is being wasted on that warfare and use it for something more constructive instead. Put them all on welfare and in school.

The drug trade and tobacco trade actually have quite a few benefits. It keeps American tobacco farmers employed, and it also returns some of the wealth we are taking away from Latin American countries. BUT, not only that, it also keeps employees of the American Cancer Society employed, as well as members of the DEA and Coast Guard (not to mention the various suppliers of weapons and transport)... and lots of urban youth as well. So WHY do we have this symbiotic relationship? Capitalist inefficiency. Our welfare and education systems suck. NOBODY wants to wind up on welfare. NOBODY wants to be useless. BUT the goal of civilization, IS, in fact, to make yourself useless, by coming up with new ideas, new processes... that will save yourself time, and save time for all of society. However, our economy has no way to reward such efficiency. What we need is not only mass education here for those out of work, but mass education abroad for those out of work as well. Sharing knowledge costs next to nothing, but the return on that investment in terms of new knowledge is invaluable.

I'm willing to bet that if you took an honest poll of the CEOs around this country, many (if not most) will tell you that patent and copyrights ARE inefficient, BUT that is the only way their companies were able to survive in the economy that capitalism has given them. What we are seeing now in this explosion of information on the internet is actually vital to the advancement of knowledge. However, our past attempts at rewarding new knowledge with copyrights and patents is failing to reward all the new information, despite the amount of time it has saved everyone with access to the internet. And thus, most of these new businesses are floundering. The biggest danger of socialized support for these publications, however, is that we face the danger that they will lose touch with the consumer. And that is what makes both consumer democracy and employee democracy vital. It's time to face reality: raising or lowering taxes does nothing but cause deflation or inflation in the class it's targeted at.

Yep. And it all comes down to capitalism. Our welfare system stinks, so they'd sooner create inefficiency, thereby guaranteeing themselves a job, instead of creating efficiency and putting themselves out of a job. The answer? REAL welfare and REAL education. How much is all this going to cost us taxpayers? Who the hell cares? More taxes just means deflation.

Why does Quebec want to break from Canada but Russia want to join NATO? Someone is being stupid here, but who? A group wants to break away only because of one thing: Oppression. A group wants to join only because of one thing: Cooperation. Why do companies merge? To SHARE knowledge. They KNOW by working together, NOBODY would have to reinvent the wheel. Why do companies break apart? Stupid managers. Because there isn't enough democracy nor freedom of debate, and thus good ideas were killed, and could only be implemented outside. It's time to put an end to all this lame peer competition.

It's only illegal because laws say it's "illegal". It becomes legal as soon as the law says it's legal. The REAL question is, do we want them? Who has the gumption to break immigration laws? Who has the getup&go to leave for a new country? THESE are the people with guts AND courage. THESE are the people, like our precious pilgrims that braved adversity. So what do we do? Deny them welfare and an education? So instead of a worker with a lot of gumption, we get a criminal with a lot of gumption. TOTAL stupidity. Valuable resources are being wasted WASTED on border patrols and lame walls. These resources could be spent so much more efficiently TEACHING the people in those countries... so they can increase their OWN production without having to come here. New production benefits EVERYONE... or it would benefit everyone, if only we didn't live in a society based on competition.

The worldwide collapse of stock markets and run on the banks was only an ILLUSION of poverty. Nothing but numbers going up in smoke. All the world's resources were still there, all the knowledge, all the labor. Eisenhower was correct about the military-industrial complex. Peace through sticks led to the Cold War. What we need is a peacetime-industrial complex. Peace through carrots. What FDR did to support the war effort, we can focus into education and research instead. We can GIVE that knowledge away, even to reluctant enemies. It costs us almost nothing to share knowledge. Knowledge produces more knowledge, no matter where in the globe it is. We can turn this entire society around. But we must NEVER deny freedom of expression, not even to our "opponents". It's THAT FEAR of the loss of individual liberties that led to the death of JFK. We're ALL on the same side. On the other side stands poverty and warfare. THAT is our target.

The justice system is meant to be an organ of crime prevention. But you can't prevent crime if people disagree with the laws. What the justice system is missing is REAL freedom of debate. If both punisher and punishee thinks he's right, then NOTHING at all has been prevented. The crime WILL be committed again. What we should REALLY do is give these criminals not only an education but a JOB as well. Show them how EASY it is to make a living without having to fight gangs of cops or pushers. The only problem, of course, is that we live under capitalism. Employing prisoners will just put us normal folk out of work, and into this sad system of welfare and education that capitalism has left us.

And the ACLU is against campaign finance reform. Against freedom of speech for the poor. Pah. Who the fuck cares WHAT party you belong to? Only mindless sheep believe in every plank of their own party's platform. People should be judged individually, not based on their race, creed, gender, or political party. In fact, statements in the past should be judged separately from the speaker. Real debate and real education cannot occur unless people are forgiven for realizing their past mistakes, and ENCOURAGED to keep debating and keep learning. ----- Thou shalt not make any graven image, or bow down before any creation in heaven or on earth.

Teachers wouldn't have to unionize if they actually had democracy and could VOTE for their supervisors from among their peers... not to mention how much supervisors should be paid. Then, they might actually AGREE with the policy that they have to carry out. Then, they might actually SPEND TIME coming up with real solutions, because freedom of debate will get good ideas both heard AND elected. And there won't be no damned supervisor taking all the credit. > A proof? Just read the newsgroups. People are asking to increase > minimum wages, for example (read my article "Minimum wages"). And people are asking to lower taxes. Duh. Both cause inflation. Capitalist fools keep mucking around with more money here or there, when all it does is cause inflation in the products for whatever class is supposed to benefit. It's not more CURRENCY that makes society better, it's more KNOWLEDGE.

Can't believe fiscal conservatives are still harping about taxes. Face it, a tax cut isn't much different from a rise in the minimum wage. It'll probably disappear under inflation. If you REALLY want a better life, then you would support education, because THAT is what produces knowledge and THAT is what makes our lives better than 100 years ago. But the biggest drawback to public education is that we all live under capitalism. If they get too smart, they'll steal our jobs.
