Does the Free Market Punish Racism? What We Saw at LA Clippers Protest

Market economics punish and reward behavior based on the society's standing cultural values. Which is why it is fuckin' hilarious that people blame the government whenever a company singlehandedly makes a decision to reinforce social equality.

Deflation is actually very bad for the economy. Initially, the only thing that is felt is people spend less money. When people don't spend money, businesses lose customers. When businesses lose customers, they lay off workers. When they lay off workers, people have less money to spend. Then the cycle repeats. According to Milton Friedman, the sharp decline in the money supply due to multiple bank failures was the primary cause of the great depression.

I never said it was a good thing but you have a good point. Lets see how much it hurt the economy.
Each block looks to be a pallet so a pallet of 100s is 100 million. A pallet's height is 3.5 feet. Pallets themselves are 40 inches by 48 inches so we get around 80,640 cubic inches per pallet.

The pile of money looks to be about 15 feet high and if piled into a square maybe 10 feet by 15 feet which gets us 3,888,000 cubic inches divide that by 80,640 and multiply by 100 million and you get around 4,821,428,571.43 billion dollars. Divide that by the money supply, 10.5 trillion and you get .00046. and there is the rate of deflation. Hopefully I did my math right

We, as the US, should not be getting involved. We already have a large number of troops in the Middle East A "war" that is neither supported or beneficial to have in the long run and if we have some form of major conflict with Russia, we will be fighting on two fronts against another Super Power and a Guerilla Insurgent Faction who is causing enough trouble as is.

User avatar #62845 to #62844 - johnstuartmill (04/29/2014) [-]
Exactly. By doing all of these sanctions and restrictions we are creating tension between Russia and everyone else Because the U.S. is not the only one doing this . Now whether or not the actions of all countries opposed to Russia's escapades work then maybe the tension is well bought, but I do not see Russia stepping down thus far.

It usually means a lack of a central government, but people still form groups to make laws and such. Its not all chaotic Bad Lands and the shoot 'em up Wild West like some people think. Only Radicals and Neophytes in the Anarchy School of Thought believe in that kind of thing.

Anarchy sees government as any entity above the law, which it is undoubtedly so. That said they would create market based services that take the place of government.

How do they not like markets?
User avatar #62850 to #62848 - jewishcommunazi (04/29/2014) [-]
Usually markets are a capitalistic trait, anarchists regard them as hierarchical, oligarchic, etc. There are exceptions, of course, since anarchism is filled with all kinds of tendencies within it so a few still have faith in some sort of market economy.
User avatar #62853 to #62850 - netzjager (04/29/2014) [-]
Granted it depends on the Anarchist on whether they prefer a market based system or an alternative system. Though for this conversation, I think it is safe to say both Mills and I are talking about an Anarcho-Capitalist system
User avatar #62840 to #62838 - netzjager (04/29/2014) [-]
No, a "smaller central government" would be more like a normal Libertarian point of view where people are connected through that government. In an Anarchist nation or a nation that discarded it's central governments , you and your neighbors would decide things through each other and/or mutual courts like in Machinery of Freedom that are made as a company to be arbiters of disputes. If you want more in-depth explanations, I know Johnstuartmill can explain it better than I.

I don't really follow actual politics anymore; I've found it to be too depressing because politicians care more about getting reelected instead of actually working to fix the country's problems.

However, as far as ideology goes, I side more with the GOP because economic policy is important too me. While I am generally socially liberal, the courts mostly take care of those things so I don't worry about it. Federal government republicans are more likely to leave social problems to the states anyway.

Conservatives have been referencing the "government plantation" for years now in the futile effort to win over Black voters. Protip: Negroids rarely vote in Congressional elections, and to get them more politically involved will reverse this trend - not with the intended result. Bundy's comments were perhaps a cruder version of what is said all the time on talk radio.

I believe that it silly to pin the Black man's problems on higher authority; after all, the worst of his post-emancipation troubles began when he was liberated from the White Southerner.

In a nutshell?
US doesn't approve of Russia trudging into and around Ukraine, barking orders and cutting off land while flexing dem stronk russian muscles.
Russia wants to secure the territory that people of Russian ethnicity and general political ideology, away from the new Ukranian government. They do this by issuing referendums, which may or may not be legitimate considering we're talking about Vladimir "140%" Putin.
The Ukranian people are divided; some protested to have trade deals with the EU, some are moderate and prefer to keep closer to Russia, and may also not have approved of the protesters either.
Ukrainian government at this point I assume wants to steer a bit farther from Russian control and move closer to Western powers like the EU, for better or for worse.

1. The United States wishes to take a state within Russia's sphere, Ukraine, and place it within its own. This is diplomatic warfare - the same thing is occurring in Syria and Central Asia.
2. Being that the lands west of the Dnieper are now controlled by hostile political forces, ( openukraine.org/en/about/partners ) Russia wishes to salvage as much of its core in the Ukraine as possible.
3. The Khorvats wanted freedom from the usurer, and think that they have achieved this by selling their nation to him in order to get out of debt. Picture related.
4. It is a vassal of the United States, and will accordingly want what the US State Department wants.

It's either him or Hillary Clinton. Pick your poison.

Why would is Hilary Clinton an alternative, you're not suggesting 2016 elections are you? Because there's no way in hell she'd want to go through with that.

Never heard of Ron Paul's rEVOLution? He is more of a Libertarian, which is kind of what he is now for You could have prevented this! .
User avatar #62737 to #62720 - johnstuartmill (04/27/2014) [-]
Libertarian. Look it up.
User avatar #62774 to #62737 - robinwilliamson (04/28/2014) [-]
They're both Libertarian in some areas, but Rand thinks too highly of it, while his father's wise enough to understand drawing the line. The term gets fucky sometimes.
User avatar #62776 to #62774 - johnstuartmill (04/28/2014) [-]
Well explain more because Libertarian encompasses a wide range of idea much like any other and some even share similar ideals.
User avatar #62779 to #62776 - robinwilliamson (04/28/2014) [-]
Well when you're give libertarianism too much, that's kind of anarchy, like think ultimate laissez-faire, it's really unreliable and you can't trust people enough, but Rand really doesn't like federal decisions even if they make sense, and in his CPAC speech, one of em at least, he got all mega-anti-Obama administration thinking the government is going to penetrate everyone's lives, but everything before that was sane. Ron on the other hand, thinks libertarian in the areas where the people would be happy AND safe, not going to those massive extents like anarchy, just basic states rights, decriminalization of drugs to end the drug wars, and balancing federal government, like isolationism with the defense budget, not the whole desperately anti-federal government extents.

>What policies do they have that do not fit within libertarian grounds? Rand's same sex marriage at a state level would arguably be within bounds because it puts political power closer to the people when a situation like this is inevitable.
>Not all libertarians aim for anarchy and many, such as myself, believe that given proper circumstances we would need a government.
> On the national/state scale it is hard to advocate full libertarian policies. Even Anarcho-Capitalists say that if we were to change the system it would have to be slowly because if we, lets say, shut down all forms of government welfare then many people who grew dependent on it would suffer. Thus we use slowly ease off the pedal instead of a complete stop.
> To quote Rand Paul:
"Libertarian would be a good description," Rand Paul told CNN, "because libertarians believe in freedom in all aspects of your life – your economic life as well as your social life as well as your personal life." You need to login to view this link

You are left at this person's mercy and influence. Do you really think murica will just put out the lives of its soldiers and milions in funding just out of good will. Obama is basicly your sugar daddy.

>You are left with this person's mercy and influence.
To some extent this is true, however breaking a defence deal and leaving a smaller state behind to be stomped down by your common enemy sure isn't something you nor your allies want to be pinned on, no matter how small the state is.

>Do you really think the US will just put the lives of it's soldiers and millions in funding out of good will?
No i do not.

#62792 to #62786 - anonymous (04/28/2014) [-]
I think you missed the point, all theese nations that have allowed foregin armies (mostly French and American) within their borders have done so through a defence agreement.

The Russians have simmular agreements with South ossetia, Transnistria and Abkhazia*

The Russians still invaded Crimea and annexed the region into it's own border, the Ukraine did not invite them in.

Well, lets examine the situation. Putin talking about peace, he had no plans for war or to invade Ukraine (other than Crimea) and yet, here is a military convoy, with fooking TANKS.

And you don't see this shit broadcast on any US news station.
User avatar #62697 to #62694 - johnstuartmill (04/26/2014) [-]
Putin is not interested in diplomacy and he is certainly prepared for invading other countries, the troop movements and heavy armaments are a clear example of this. The reason why the media is covering this could be anywhere from the whim of the editor to political pressure so it could be anything.
#62695 to #62694 - valeriya (04/26/2014) [-]
Your point? Politicians lie and tanks move where politicians want them, just because they're in the position to attack doesn't mean they're going to. It's been news for ages hasn't it (I've not been watching much news) that Russian troops on the Ukrainian border have been bolstered and are on alert ready to mobilize and engage. It'll be news when they roll over the border and storm the east of Ukraine, for now it's sit and wait.
