I could film myself talking to the camera, but the energy I feed off of from being around other people just wouldn't be present at all. Hmm...
    If you have a roommate who wouldn't mind being in the video, perhaps ask them to help you out?

If I don't absorb anything that expands my mind or broadens my understanding of something for too long, I grow tired with the environment around me.

    Yaaa....I'm actually bored right now and I'm trying to find something on the internet that will blow my mind
    I can somewhat relate...I used to believe that I don't get bored. When I really do, I didn't want to admit it.

    oh! Just gave me an idea, what if I was able to get my brother to get on camera with me?! Ohhh this would be an interesting type interaction video. Though sadly, I don't think he'd be up to it. But yes! The roommate idea is one I like

    Sure, but it doesn't address the overall point. You criticized my arguments, not for content, but for style. Then your ignored them to make the point which you want to make, which has nothing to do with the subject.

    All good for you. Remember to not take it personally.

    I know your position from general discussion of these issues with you.

    Libertarian economics sound nice and valid but miss out on representing reality or being anything but as utopian as Marx. Instead they miss out entirely on the consequences of their policies on a politcal and social standpoint. Their advocates scream about "redistribution of wealth" and "socialism", while ignoring that their policies have promoted one of the absolutely largest redistribution of wealth in the history of the world.

    I believe they are mostly well-intentioned. Just caught up in a mindsight limited to money and ignoring everything else.

    I believe that even Alan Greenspan believes most of his arguments. Given the real world costs of following him, his ideas are clearly utopian. Since he was not lying, he was just wrong.

    My first post criticized the content, my second ignored the content for two reasons: the reason I originally gave and because this is not a political debate thread.

    Then your ignored them to make the point which you want to make, which has nothing to do with the subject.
    Well, it isn't as if you addressed my original points that DID have to do with the subject. Not your fault, I'm sure; it's just because you see a bigger picture, that's all.

    All good for you. Remember to not take it personally.

    I know your position from general discussion of these issues with you.
    You know that I disagree with you. You do not know my position.

    Libertarian economics sound nice and valid but miss out on representing reality or being anything but as utopian as Marx. Instead they miss out entirely on the consequences of their policies on a politcal and social standpoint. Their advocates scream about "redistribution of wealth" and "socialism", while ignoring that their policies have promoted one of the absolutely largest redistribution of wealth in the history of the world.
    Again, you do not know my position, you know your characterization of it. I suspect you don't know your position, either, if you are speaking of redistribution of wealth. There are very huge assumptions about how the world works built into the phrase "redistribution of wealth". It's helpful to know what those assumptions are.

    I believe they are mostly well-intentioned. Just caught up in a mindsight limited to money and ignoring everything else.
    This belief is your real position.

    I believe that even Alan Greenspan believes most of his arguments. Given the real world costs of following him, his ideas are clearly utopian. Since he was not lying, he was just wrong.
    See, this is how I know you don't understand my position. Alan Greenspan is anything but a free market economist, though that is how he portrays himself. Yes, he's a conservative republican; yes, he believed in supply-side economics; but in practice he was a Keynesian and in practice his job was to "control" the markets, not let them be free. In the end, he advocated the typical Keynesian thing of stimulating the economy until the malinvestments accumulated to the point that the markets had to crash. Twice.

    If you are interested in continuing the discussion, let's create a new thread (I'll move these posts over). If not, we can just leave these posts here and perhaps continue the discussion another time.
    An argument is two people sharing their ignorance.

    A discussion is two people sharing their understanding, even when they disagree.

    people vary to much to be able to say x always causes y. but sometimes x does cause y just nothing is ever 100% true 100% of the time. and the sooner you realize this the less often you'll get angry when someone doesn't fit your narrative of how someone should be based on their race,religion,political views, or personal history. Yes I am not perfect because i do find myself getting angry about these things, but I don't claim to be anything more than human. I still say the biggest contributor to problems is the ego and selfishness.

    Incredible.

    I find myself relating mostly to masculine women. The characters and people I like are mostly a reflection of this.
