Ya, very different. Rural America is almost unparalleled in the developed world.Someone get an admin in here...
Actually I grew up in the sticks.. not what you mean't but it made me chuckle
State of nature. Social contract.The statement relates more to war than everyday struggles. It basically asserts that those who haven't fought for their freedom have not paid their dues, they are parasites.
Maybe, but they intuitively know what's empirically the case - game theory dictates that single member districts end up as two party systems.Diverging what now?
*runs off to research*
Aha!... most assuredly. I'm so sick of saying to people "why not look at voting liberal or green?" to be met each time with the response of "they'll never get in". Narrow minded, short sighted, dim witted sheep!!
How would that not lead to government by Pop/American Idol?Not really no... just depressing... deeply depressing...
See democracy relies on people giving two nutshells about the government and the country really and that just doesn't hold up to reality. Now legally requiring people to vote, that system has promise.
Where are you going to get your food from?I don't get where you're going with this.. I'll use my fingers like normal?
One of the things I've been learning on this site and about personality in general is that many (perhaps most) just don't function in that way. If men were angels, we would already live in anarchy.I'm a firm believer in the unexamined life being not worth living and I'm tired of fixing problems which could have been avoided if people used the muscle between their ears.
What evolutionary purpose does philosophy serve?I don't mind people who aren't bright but those who just won't use it irritate me. And yes I realise the duplicity... it's just my objections and more logical and right
Or it might end up in mob rule or that of mafia-style strongmen, since society will desperately crave stability at that point. There's a reason why the Taliban arose in Afghanistan when the Russians left a power vacuum.Tick, tick, boom!!
It would end up with a new government and one that would perhaps be a little more respectful towards it's power base? I so wish the same would happen to banks. They need a lesson in the idea of "YOU have NO money you arrogant little straight jacket. You have MY money. I, in part, OWN your useless ass!".
Extend your bank analysis a little further, and you've got the start of Marxist criticism.
And that's the end of Marxist policy.Just shoot them. Sod elitist society, just wipe out the hangars on. It's much more efficient.
