    PM vows to block 'dark side' of net

    Illegal downloads of music/video/games hurts the entertainment industry! Illegal downloads of child pornography supports the child exploitation industry! I haven't quite got my head around how to make this work... I guess sometimes the illegal download in the case of child pornography is...

    The individual in society

    An Update: Firstly, sorry to Dom that I left our conversation half-way through. I've been busy with things, as I imagine you have, but I'm sure you'll be at least somewhat pleased to know I feel more inclined these days to agree with your thoughts. I still feel the state has merit, just as I...

    Imagine a helmet strapped on a human skull— forever

    That's cool... I'm sure lots of people favor expansion of public transport and want it to be better. I really don't think so... For instance, I happen to know I wouldn't consider using the train for my daily trips into the city unless I knew: a) It was the fastest way in/out (It's far...

    The individual in society

    When it comes to land rights, while it may seem unjust I can't see any practical option than to say that might is right. It is only once you have a state, or at least something like a powerful association of "land owners" who band together to claim land as their own and enforce those claims...

    Imagine a helmet strapped on a human skull— forever

    As far as I understand it, as it is now people pay far more in tolls/registration costs/taxes etc in NSW than the cost of the roads/maintenance. It is only once you include externalities such as Road Fatalities (loss of revenue from taxing that person) and Carbon pollution that the roads can be...

    Imagine a helmet strapped on a human skull— forever

    If only we didn't have roads... then we wouldn't be so dependent on our cars!

    LMFAO... You obviously live in a pretty lush neighborhood.

    The individual in society

    Say we're living in a libertarian society and someone starts up a private community for people to go in live in. They have to pay 'taxes', follow certain 'rules' or face punishments, and there is a board of directors chosen by votes etc who shape the rules. Children born into the community...

    Ideally, we should all get floated around from destination to destination by magical unicorns.

    Imagine a helmet strapped on a human skull— forever

    Cyclists shouldn't be using the roads anyway, in my opinion... Other than perhaps newer/revamped communities where the roads have been designed with cycling/motoring co-existing in mind.

    Fat Tax

    We're talking about involuntary fat camps and seizure of property.

    It's alright.

    Rise of Anarcho-capitalism on BOS

    Leaving aside the specifics of that FTA (things like whether I think Australia HAS benefited, whether it was a type of 'reward' for our involvement in Iraq etc) I'd just like to point out that: - It is an agreement between two developed countries, you have been trying to claim 'free trade' was...

    Rise of Anarcho-capitalism on BOS

    Ugh... In ALL of your examples, Protectionism is reigned in ONLY WHERE THERE IS BENEFITS FOR THE COUNTRY REMOVING THE PROTECTIONS - WHICH IS NOT ALWAYS. Take for example, The United States: Tariffs in American history - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia They had some of the absolute highest...

    Rise of Anarcho-capitalism on BOS

    Of course not, however if nations would have flourished better without such policies I wonder why there are basically.... No examples.

    Rise of Anarcho-capitalism on BOS

    lol china has a very protected economy which has become 'freer' where they have strong competitive advantages. The vast majority of these also do, or did employ extremely protectionist policies - until such point as being a part of the 'free market' make good business sense. Show me an...

    Fat Tax

    There already is in effect a 'fat' tax: People who eat a lot of unhealthy foods already pay more for their food then they would if they were making nice, home cooked meals. These corporations make record profits on the backs of luring children (Happy Meal, Playlands) into unhealthy lifestyles...

    Does God exist?

    This is true, however I think it's a moot point. If atheists and theists both have the same meanings in their lives, whether it be from divine or natural origin - it shows that there is nothing extra about the 'meaning' people get from belief in jesus or what have you. I do grant that there is...

    Does God exist?

    The problem with that is that atheists and theists seem to find the same things in life meaningful.
