Re: How do you feel about basic income?

What prices should things have? Or are we going to provide a Mercedes for everyone who wants one because without money there is no reason for there to be a shortage of Mercs any more? The way I'd organize things, which would retain competition, is that the way one acquires scarcer resources is by c...

Re: How do you feel about basic income?

In my opinion, if we started from scratch--we just wiped the slate clean so to speak, with respect to the money that everyone has, with respect to everyone's present careers, etc.--if we were to just hit "reset" and restart the game, if wouldn't actually be that difficult to reorganize things to mak...

Re: LET'S GO TO OKLAHOMA !!

I'm guessing that you're the grocery store owner, by the way? (Or maybe you're related to the grocery store owner or something?)

Re: Is it possible to go faster than light?

Infinite mass has nothing to do with this Why cannot objects travel faster than light speed A wormhole can shorten the distance between two points. Let's take a specific example. Take two points that are separated 18.6 million miles in space. This means it takes light 100 seconds to travel from poi...

Re: New philosopher here, Ask me anything.

Here's a quick two-question test, though, to see if there's a possibility that I might consider you to be qualified to act as a teacher:

(1) What is your view of epistemological coherentism with respect to whether it's circular?

(2) What would you say the role of causality is in genidentity?

Re: New philosopher here, Ask me anything.

1. I envision myself as a top player and want an easy way to distribute my work for the benefit of people in general rather than people in specific. In other words, attempting conversation with you is probably going to be a disaster from my perspective, because you see yourself as superior and you ...

Re: What is truth?

You're using Kant's terminological(conceptual) framework. You're not answering what you take the relevance of that to be. Is it that just in case S initiated some particular terminology, you expect everyone after S to use the terminology in the same way that S did? (Also, this is assuming that S us...

Re: Devalued Values

For a value to be meaningful it must operate positively and negatively within the system. Your first premise seems obviously incorrect to me. You'd need to argue for this (and for my views, you'd have to make the argument about something other than meaning, because there's no way that you'd be able...

At this point I can only conclude that you have some sort of mental illness (and I do suspect that you're an Aspie, at least). Well, or you're a pretty dedicated troll.
