Re: Twitter!

TIL that straight male friends can never be roommates. For 49 years? The police have never rousted that grumpy homeless guy who hangs out in front of their place over the same span of time. Neither have those two guys gone off to an assisted living center, since they'd have to be at least 70 by now...

Re: Twitter!

For real, though, Bert and Ernie are gay. If Miss PIggy can be trying to fuck Kermit every five minutes then we can have some damn homo puppets too. What is with people not respecting the difference between The Muppet Show, which is obviously sexual, with Sesame Street, which is obviously ace. Smdh.

Haha see I was thinking B&E was worse because I could at least laugh about Toad.

Re: Twitter!

The only real question is, which is worse, the reason behind Toad or the reason behind B&E.

I won't spoiler you, don't worry.

Re: Debate: Be an Anarchist, Not a Minarchist

How they act when probability of punishment is low. Rate at which taxes are paid voluntarily. Size of black market as percent of total transactions. Stuff like that. ETA - one proxy might be “when enforcement shows up how far down the list of actions is ‘I need to bribe this guy’?” What’s the rate ...

It’s definitely extremely funny. Mostly because they never realize that they’re acting like some kind of extreme female stereotype of baby-craziness.

Yeah he got a lot of criticism over that. I kind of assumed he just thought any time you’re not pregnant from 18 to 35 is you wasting eggs.

Re: Debate: Be an Anarchist, Not a Minarchist

But private violence is also just violence and the game is to seek arrangements that mitigate violence from all sides. If any private act, say of violence or theft, can be unjust - the remedy is going to involve violence or threat thereof. If it can’t be than any rule set can exist then it’s just p...

Re: Masculinity, so fragile

I would be genuinely, non-ironically curious to know what "value" this man thinks he has to offer any sane adult woman. He does explain that. You see, women derive their value from being with a man of higher status than they are. So he builds himself up so women can tell their friends what a high s...

Re: Debate: Be an Anarchist, Not a Minarchist

Totally lost me with the everything is anarchy gotcha. That’s suggesting to me that you are carrying a notion of legitimacy that has no logical coherence and are insisting it’s the only thing that matters. Well, Hugh has said a couple times it’s not the only thing that matters. But “legitimacy” is ...

Re: Debate: Be an Anarchist, Not a Minarchist

Yeah, this is definitely not a matter of just going along with things because you’re used to them. But not going along with statism would mean accepting anarchy, which gives you a gangster regime that is just like statism... Is there a red pill that will let me escape this Matrix? No. That’s the po...

Re: Debate: Be an Anarchist, Not a Minarchist

OK, states and anarchy have the same problems and are literally the same. I'd like to see fewer people treated inhumanely because of minor crimes. How will anarchy be any better for that end if anarchy and statism have the same problems and are literally the same? Is it just a relabeling of the sam...

Re: Debate: Be an Anarchist, Not a Minarchist

In your terms- “merely” degree. Look if your model doesn’t treat differences in human experiences between DPRK and US as salient - it’s not very serious about addressing the human condition. Degree of severity is a significant thing. And I already acknowledged that some warlords are better than oth...

Re: Debate: Be an Anarchist, Not a Minarchist

I mean...you guys are all talking about how if whatever nonstate mafia gains enough power it becomes a state. So, you recognize that the state is just the biggest mafia. There’s no question of “legitimacy” in terms of its monopoly on violence. So...how is this not exactly what you say anarchy would ...

There are people who do do that, who prefer to take the risks associated with lawbreaking. Only some of them are cops.
