Re: Is it better to be stupid, or ignorant?

It's more a question of whether the stupid mob will listen to reason. For instance Trump supporters attacking journalists covering a Trump rally. With Trump calling reporters "enemies of the state" we have had some rallies where the mob will stop and listen without continuing their attacks and other...

For society it is better with stupid people since they are less likely to be able to persuade others into stupid ideas and viewpoints.
You have never seen mob rule with the stupid encouraging the stupid.

Trump went with both, because when you are rich it doesn't matter. People will make excuses for you to gain access to your money. :)

Re: The USA's trade deficits

The Trump family made its some what legitimate fortune from using cheap foreign goods from Chinese steel and shoddy law breaking clothing to hiring illegal migrants.

Re: The USA's trade deficits

Eliminating the US debt would take a few decades of annual surplus budgets which is no longer realistic. However we could go back to the older view of running up surpluses during booming economic times to reduce the debt and only have deficits during recessions to help the economy recover quicker. T...

Re: The USA's trade deficits

Years of buying cheaper made goods from other countries has left us in permanent annual trade deficits. We sent the manufacturing and supplies overseas so some industries can't even make things here at comparable prices. As a friend complained, sure his company has two suppliers for needed parts, bu...

Meanwhile since the Alabama and now Missouri laws have no rape exemptions, rapists will have an additional protection that their victims lack of parental rights:

It's a parasite living off the host. Would you defend a tapeworm's right to exist? Would you let the government decide it could harvest your organs to save other people's lives? How much would you let the government decide to do with your body without your consent. After all it would be against the ...

Re: Wikileaks, Assange, and sexual assault

From what I've seen in the news the password hack failed, but just attempting is illegal. There are supposed to be emails discussing the hack and its failure which acts as proof of intent and that there was an attempt.

Re: Wikileaks, Assange, and sexual assault

There is a long history of cases where publishing secrets isn't always punished going back to the Nixon years and the Ellsberg Pentagon papers. It depends upon the publisher and whether it can be considered a matter of national security like the names and locations of spies (which is punishable). ht...

Re: Wikileaks, Assange, and sexual assault

Assange is getting indicted in the US not just for publishing the leaks, but providing password breaking help on a secured restricted US computer system to get files. He went from semi-legal publisher to helping to steal secrets.
