What about the people who you know, actually run websites and work in the tech industry? Not the out of touch inheritors of daddy's will, or a self-absorbed sports investor.

This is going to seem like ad hominem, but are there any independent thoughts in your head? You were such a rank and file Liberal Social Democrat. And now you're the stereotypical Libertarian who will always choose corporate rights over individual rights, everything you write reads like it came right out of a Mises article.
User avatar #74346 to #74345 - kanadetenshi (12/17/2014) [-]
Lol i was never a Social democrat, in fact it's social democrats who support corporate cronyism over the individual. I used to be more left-wing yes but social democrat?

Technology itself is largely irrelevant to the debate. Nearly everyone would agree that equally fast internet is a good thing. The debate is whether the government should be involved with the regulation which is a debate based on economics. Which to i say instead of letting the government hold the power and continue to destroy and stifle competition we should actively allow for a cronyless free market in the broadband industry and give people the choice to go for a broadband which has or hasn't got net neutrality. Besides most ISP's have been neutral without regulation until this debacle showed up.

Ever heard the saying "when you stare into the abyss long enough, it stares back at you."?

Well when it does stare back at you you have two options. You can either turn away in disgust, and get as far away from it as you can, or you can jump in.

When you consume propaganda your heart either hardens and rejects it completely, or it softens and embraces everything it has been told.

Also, we had net neutrality for the most part until recently. I believe a bunch of court cases destroyed it.

The net neutrality debate isn't about competitive markets, its about monopolies.
User avatar #74361 to #74358 - kanadetenshi (12/17/2014) [-]
Well the discussion of monopolies and competitive market and directly connected to each other since monopolies stand in direct opposition to a competitive market (at least unnatural monopolies)
User avatar #74362 to #74361 - pebar (12/17/2014) [-]
ISPs aren't unnatural monopolies though. Like most other utility providers, they are natural monopolies.
You can't have a bunch of companies each dig up the ground, lay their own cables, then have a customer only pick one. So there are a lot of start up costs.
User avatar #74364 to #74362 - kanadetenshi (12/17/2014) [-]
Like any company starting up requires risks and costs to get it going, but it's not as difficult as people make it out to be. In the UK villagers in Lyddington, Rutland, have banded together and raised the capital to lease BT's services and lay their own fibre-optic cables, turning their internet no-go zone into a digitally connected hub that offers the 200 homes in the village download speeds of up to 40Mbps. And there are other alternatives as well. I mean just look at how the telecommunication market went from only a few competitors to thousands of competitors.

Yeah just forget about all the lives lost during the process.

Russia is a country in my personal opinion that cannot succeed because of the people. Russians are vial, rude, disgusting people who I personally think have a barbaric culture and cant handle democracy yet.

User avatar #74434 to #74355 - byposted (12/20/2014) [-]
The best retort here is not that people died in the process of industrialization, but that Tsarist Russia was a world power. Levvy's glorious Revolution stripped the country of this status, such that Stalin would not even consider himself relevant in European affairs until he signed non-aggression pact with Germany.

Why should Russians embrace liberal-democracy at a time when its destructive products have clearly manifested themselves in Western Europe?

It's called deportation, and you can't morally do that either. You just need to control your immigration. The last time, it was just, "Surprise! You can't have guns. Surprise! You're illegal. Surprise! You can't leave. Surprise! You're dead." It doesn't work like that.

I don't know how bad you're overrun with other cultures, but it can't be like it is in the U.S. Normal immigration is good. Other people get to integrate into your culture and then your culture grows. As long as it's not so much that you're diluted and unable to act as a unified culture, it's a good thing.

It's hard to justify forcing a bunch of people to give up their homes and move somewhere else. Unless you're at some breaking point, you're probably better off dealing with the immigrants you have now, and controlling further immigration for a while.

>Implying there aren't more complex factors like media sensationalism and a far higher population density.

Not only do most shootings happen in states with the strictest gun laws but non-US countries with freedom of gun ownership generally have less gun crime. Should also be noted that while gun crime may be higher in the US than a lot of European countries, european ones have larger crime rates in other weaponry.

Strict gun laws also didn't stop Breivik from committing the largest mass shooting.

User avatar #74276 to #74272 - kanadetenshi (12/15/2014) [-]
The point is that banning a weapon won't stop crime, people can just as easily commit crimes using other weapons. You can as easily say that knife crime is higher in the UK because we haven't banned knives.
#74279 to #74276 - anon (12/15/2014) [-]
I know what the point was, it was just that it was so obvious that people will go to other means, when something is not available.

Knives are way less lethal effective than guns are, and it's pretty fucking hard to perform a mass-killing with one, so knife-violence is preferably than the other one.
User avatar #74280 to #74279 - kanadetenshi (12/15/2014) [-]

Crossbows & nailsguns are also hella scary
Making WMD with chopped vegetables, meat , a bit dirt and a glass with a bit of water

or Chlorine tabs, plastic bottle with isopropyl alcohol is also scary.

Guns don't mean shit you can make pretty much mass killing machines with everything in your kitchen.

But talking like this could go on for years the point is if it immensely lowers crime and protects you then it's a good thing.

If we want to solve the Capital Punishment puzzle, why don't we entertain the idea that if you want to charge someone with the death penalty, then once it's their turn to die after the legal work is done, you shoot them in the head yourself, barrel directly to the back of the head.

If they deserve it, kill them yourself. I might, if I knew for absolute sure I was shooting the right person. Maybe some other people would, too.
However, I doubt the majority of proponents would be willing to pull that trigger, especially given how often we're not actually sure it's the right person.

That issue clears up the lack of empathy people have for the innocent people that die by the hands of the state.

Unless you know for absolute sure it's the right person, it's going to be hell trying to pull the trigger.

Population density has the biggest effect on that. Coastal cities are more likely to have a higher population and have more trade and, hence, pay more taxes. Coastal cities are also more likely to be less conservative because of immigrants. In fact, the only reason the incredible regulations in those cities don't collapse their economy is because of their location.

You know agriculture is very heavily subsidized in the US, right?
You know food stamps and other welfare programs are effectively subsidizing farms, right?
You'll notice a sizable chunk of those states are pretty rural and used for farming.
