LordJiro: Yeah, pure capitalist societies tend to let other things do the killing for them. Like preventable disease, starvation, desperation, and so on.


Communism is great for starvation, disease, and desperation!

Vlad_the_Inaner: Lionel Mandrake: mrshowrules: SlothB77: Liberalism won't die.  But Obamacare will.

Wanna bet?

I, too, will take that bet.

Are you trying for a sucker bet because there is no such thing officially known as "Obamacare" so it's already not-alive?


ACA will never be repealed and the one day it is replaced will represent additional regulation (not less).

5 million people lost their insurance in October.
0.1 million people signed up for Obamacare.

Therefore "people are getting insured"

Got it.

By Ayn Rand's mighty pen, sign me up for this bet as well.

500 Quatloos against the sloth like one.

All Fark bets must be made in gold-pressed latinum.  Your quatloos are no good here, buddy.


No one's going to cover my 30,000 woolongs?

tjfly: 5 million people lost their insurance in October.

were informed that their current insurance was ending on Dec. 31st and they would be moved to a new policy.
0.1 million people signed up for Obamacare.

Therefore "people are getting insured"

Got it.


Fixed for outright lies.

Those 5 million, most of them were told if they did nothing they'd be automatically moved to a new policy.  ALL of them can buy a new policy from their current insurer or the exchanges.  Many of them will even receive better coverage, or cheaper coverage.

GFY.

DemonEater: Many of them will even receive better coverage, or cheaper coverage.


Riiiiigggghhhttttttt.  Because that's what insurance companies are known for.

/Unless you mean 58 year old women will soon be paying for/receiving maternity coverage.  Then "better" = "retarded".
  Oh. and don't forget the 58 y/o women that are giving up hearing aids for abortion coverage.  Just because it's "better."

jigger: FarkedOver: fascism which is a subset of capitalism

[i.imgur.com image 300x562]


Mussolini defined fascism as the marriage of the corporation and the state.  How is that not capitalism?  Oh wait, you're a an idiot that thinks that everything that involves the state is "socialism".  You do realize that socialism is defined as worker control of industry and proletarian control of the government? You just don't care obviously, and instead post a picture. Fascism is corporatism.  Corporatism is capitalism.

Capitalism is like a piece of shiat.  You can roll it into a ball or form it into a square and call it whatever you like, but guess what? It's still a piece of shiat.

Felgraf: FarkedOver: I'm not horrified when revolutionary justice and terrors occur on those that were once oppressing people. I'm horrified by the loss of life of anyone else though.

And you include kids in the "Once oppressing people?"


Is this a think of the children argument? I mean children die in war.  I don't usually count them as oppressive people, but in Africa some times there are children soldiers that are extremely vicious.  If a child is shooting at you, you shoot back..... Yeah, that's a terrible thing to have to deal with, but these things happen.

Evil High Priest: Rwa2play: FarkedOver: Rwa2play: FarkedOver: Rwa2play: Well it seems that either Libertarianism says nothing about it or I forgot the passage regarding human nature. It seems that whenever Libertarianism says one thing, reality biatch-slaps it and is stunned to find out it can't doing anything to counter the biatch slap.

I think lots of Libertarians believe in Praxeology.... which was pioneered by a bunch of fascist sympathizers and flat out racists.  (i.e. Mises and Rothbard).

/looks up Praxeology

So...is it wrong for me to surmise that Praxeology was trying to predict human action based on a set of circumstances?  Because if that's the case, we would've been farked as a culture had we followed through with such a thing. :)

It's pseudo-science more or less.

Ah yes, I understand that level of junk science quite well.

They attempt to apply it to economics for the most part and in doing so make some pretty vile judgements on different races.

Ahhh the austrian school of economics a bunch of proto-fascists

My apologies for the earlier outburst.  Have you favorited as "A cool Marxist"

I have him tagged as "dirty filthy red son of a biatch Marxist. ". His words, not mine.


I don't have him tagged, but he is painted in "red 1", the only Farker to have earned that honor.
