A hive mind is the collective sharing of minds into a single consciousness, serving and driving the goals of its entire population. As such, individuality in a hive mind is sacrificed for the whole, and its members and resources are assigned tasks according to how to best achieve those goals.
-the snip from an article about The Borg

Does this fit the philosophy of ideal communism? I never really got an answer last time
User avatar #38664 to #38574 - oxan (07/01/2013) [-]
Communism is all about expressing your individuality, pebar. Class consciousness doesn't mean a single consciousness, it just means being aware of your relationship to the mode of production and means of production.

Master race asperger syndrome reporting in.
User avatar #38578 to #38543 - Shiny ONLINE (07/01/2013) [-]
Asperger's is now just autism (level 1, very high functioning).

Also, a lot of those people are just speculated to have some form of autism. I hate it when people act like having mental conditions makes them superior; I've been diagnosed myself, but know damn well that in the real world, it's mostly a liability.

Why do American socialists think that corporations run everything and that private property only belongs to the rich?
User avatar #38669 to #38541 - oxan (07/01/2013) [-]

Avatar was a movie about a different species, culture, and planet. They were suffering because the military was using force to steal their lands for the wealth it had. Had they found a peaceful solution like oh I don't know using the millions of years of advance technology to use advanced mining techniques to mine the resources without destabilizing the region or drilling straight down.

I mean they solved cyro freezing an entire army and then traveling across the galaxy. But you can't use the same mining techniques we use today in modern day drilling? Pitiful.

What I found interesting is how they determine unemployment. Part of the criteria is that you must have been actively searching for a job prior to the answering the unemployment survey. The unemployment rate, then, consists of individuals who are actually looking for work.

Let's say hypothetically the government is completely honest and always keeps its promises

User avatar #38448 to #38443 - oxan (06/30/2013) [-]
Well, no, because there's other rights they'd still be free to infringe on. Unless they promised to never infringe on those rights, either.

Increased spending to improve the economy in an industrialized and modern nation-state. Ye or Nay + reasons why.
User avatar #38449 to #38401 - oxan (06/30/2013) [-]
Yes. Obviously, not throwing money at things and hoping they work, but well thought out programs. It's essentially what Australia did, but the government was on the border of going overboard (and maybe jumped over a couple of times), and the Australian economy is probably one of the strongest in the world right now.

There's no guarantee it will always succeed, that's why you put the effort in ensuring the plan you're putting the dollar on is thought-out from the barebones and onward.

Just simply throwing your hands up and letting the economy fall into the total hands of the private sector doesn't work if they themselves don't handle themselves properly. That's what Hoover did where he just gave money to businesses hoping they'd save America from the Great Depression, and that did nothing.

There has to be a balance between private and public sector for the economy to make true advancement.
User avatar #38556 to #38554 - undeadwill (06/30/2013) [-]
Or remove the main cause of inflation.
User avatar #38557 to #38556 - akkere (06/30/2013) [-]
How does that change the balance of spending?

Also, controlling inflation and deflation is something that's somewhat a necessity because it maintains the demand for our exports. If it's too deflated, not too many nations wish to buy our products, and if it's too inflated, we can't buy our own products or other nations products.

Depends. You shouldn't just blindly pump money into the economy with hopes that it will magically work, but it can be necessary to improve the social aspect of the nation before the economic aspect can heal.

Solutions on lower costs of healthcare and higher education?
#38456 to #38387 - valeriya (06/30/2013) [-]
Higher education is seriously inflated in value there's some pretty useless degrees out there, make more practical alternatives such as speciallly training for certain roles at a college (I've heard they do women's studies in the US), sure it's nice to have people knowledgeable in cultures but it isn't practical subsidize certain core subjects; (Your sciences medicine , engineering, military staff etc).

Healthcare is also incredibly inflated in terms of what you're getting, thanks to the nice big pharma you've got going as well as the fact the government is limiting the amount of medical staff to ensure it remains profitable, so basically end the artificial scarcity I'd personally drop all (excess) liabilities on doctors because it's just driving prices up, you know you could solve a lot of this by nationalizing and taking a lot of the profit motive out of healthcare.
User avatar #38494 to #38456 - undeadwill (06/30/2013) [-]
That could also lower the quality of care and drive up taxes when our government has no money to spend.
#38501 to #38494 - valeriya (06/30/2013) [-]
Depending on how bureaucratic and lazy your government is, I know in the Ussr we had the most medical staff and doctors per cap the world, not sure if we still do. The British have a system here where common illnesses and injuries are covered the thing is in America you pay the most into healthcare anywhere in the world, and it's shit in comparison to the rest of the developed world because your government doesn't actually have the ability to do anything., it does benefit employers as well a healthy worker is a lot more productive , it really depends on how the government does it, in your case so far it's been forcing companies to insure people or picking up gap in the market of said company which you are helping to line their pockets by keeping x amount of the potential workforce out.

For education, have market level interest rates for student loans. You might say people who can't afford it wouldn't be able to go to college, but that's kinda the point. For health care, I've been toying with the idea of eliminating insurance altogether. It would lower overhead for doctors greatly and give doctors more flexibility in their practices and payment plans.

It let's companies get away with very unethical behavior and the victims cannot get the necessary compensation.
