Many foolish individuals in these forums post positive rights ideology. What a worthless, destructive point of view. Look at what it has done to Europe since the end of WWII. God help us save American from this lunacy.
Elizabeth Warren recently declared that taking private property is justified by some alleged social contract and authorizes her and other politicians to do this taking in the name of this contract.
Of course you can only take from people who take what they are given and produce a surplus. What about the people who take what they are given and produce a loss/deficit. Is Elisabeth Warren there to share in the loss/deficit?
Are my nose, eyes, kidneys, and other vital organs open game for Miss Warren as well? Communal property knows no bounds? Do we all get to share in Miss Warren's power if she is elected? Her office wasn't produced by her alone so we get our share?
The illogic of positive rights is exactly what makes it so easy to ridicule and expose as preposterous.
People who claim positive rights unwittingly say multitudes about themselves. Individuals who claim a positive right to a benefit simultaneously admit their unwillingness or inability to provide this benefit through their own labor.
The only rights that an individual really needs. Protection of property, due process of law, and sound money. Individuals around the world thrive whenever these three themes come together. When you go beyond these basic rights and start creating "false rights" that ignore personal responsibility you cause an irreversible decay of society, see Europe circa 2011.
Hey everybody. I just came across this site when looking for diplomacy tactics...I have to say it might definitely be worth my time. Since I'm a new guy at this site, how do I start playing a game with other people?
I know most here are not Australian, nor football supporters, but the Sky Blues had a most fantastic and heroic victory tonight over Gold Coast United. 3-2 at the death. Karol Kisel scores a penalty at 90+3mins! Brilliant! Discuss.....lol
I've been going through and updating my stats on my profile page so I can show my record in full, partial and no press (and update messages/game), and so I got to see how well I played in gunboat to start. Guess what I found?
We are living in historic times. Right before our eyes the failed model of European socialism is collapsing. The only question is what will exist in its ruins? The senseless youth violence in England, and the self-pitying protests of you Frenchmen do not bode well for the continents decaying culture.
This is something that socialists, marxists, and statists do not comprehend, the importance of entrepreneurship to economic growth. In fact entrepreneurship is the only advantage the United States has on the rest of the world.
K here is our map. my question is, if i move my boat from the english channel to the northsea with support from norwegian sea. but he moves his boat from north sea to BEL, with support from Hol, would my move stop his move or at least cut support?
How can a decade old accusation of sexual harassment against Herman Cain even be an issue in American politics after all the liberals dismissed Bill Clinton's adultery with a member of the staff in the White House as being completely irrelevant to his job as president.
The 28% tax on long-term capital gains brought in only $36.9 billion a year from 1987 to 1997, according to the Treasury Department, while the 15% tax brought in $96.8 billion a year from 2004 to 2007.
You're France in S01 and Italy moves to Piedmont while Marseilles moved to Spain and Paris to Picardy along with Brest-MAO. Barring any real diplomacy that has gone on, are you more likely to return to Marseilles in the fall assuming Italy will attack it, or list a hold order assuming a bluff?
Diplomats fall into different categories or archetypes. Some are bossy and curmudgeonly. Some are vague and try to stay neutral toward everybody. Some are pushovers (the best allies of course!). And some are true diplomats. There is a lot to say on this topic and I hope to get a lot of participation in this thread, but I'd like to start with a couple pointers that have served me well:
