Isn't it amazing what science can do? Soon instead of waiting for organ donors, people will be able to have organs custom-printed for them, fresh and fine-tuned to support their bodily needs! #3DPrinting #technology #humanitarian #organdonation
Dying patients could someday receive a 3D-printed organ made from their own cells rather than wait on long lists for the short supply of organ transplants. Such a dream remains far from reality, but labs have already taken the first steps.

Not even a broken tail light, just a burnt out bulb -_-
 
Walter Scott was pulled over for a broken tail light. He was shot in the back minutes later because the cop claimed he feared for his life. Warning, disturbing footage!

There is no law requiring compliance without warrant. Saying if he complied he wouldn't have died is like saying that a hostage should just do what the criminal asks, or that a store clerk should just hand over the money. In other words, the idea we should all be victims for our own good. That is not how citizens of a civilized society should behave.

Private property is a positive right, not a negative right. Perhaps you don't understand the distinction, but basically it goes like this: By communists denying private property rights, they aren't taking away people's right to own private property, they're merely not recognizing such a right as legitimate to begin with. 

To understand this, we will compare to governments going to war. If you are a pacifist and think killing is bad, then you won't want to be forced to support that, right? But the government insists "oh, but we need war to defend this country, what would happen if we were taken over by Muslim radicals?", and the pacifist responds, "I would rather be in a Muslim country than support killing people". 

In this case, some people will side with the government, and some people will side with the pacifist. But the point is, the government is forcing a right, the right for the government to go to war, on everyone, and justifying its importance. And before you go and say "this is an extreme comparison", no, it's not. Communists view private property to be just as horrible and exploitative and violent as war- actually, they consider capitalism itself to be the creator and sustainer of the state, and thus by extension of the wars states wage. 

So if a communist does not want to be part of a capitalist system- that is, to be compelled to purchase private property, which they regard to be contributing the the most violent and destructive system in the world, in order to live, to work, is a violation of not only their inalienable right to life, liberty, and happiness; or, alternatively, to work for someone else who owns private property, and thus become party to the crime through participation in the very system that they regard to be the epitome of violence, exploitation, and oppression, then they are faced with two choices which both compel (force) them to participate in a system that infringes on their negative rights (life, liberty, pursuit of happiness, etc.), as well as violates their conscience (they are forced to act in a way they view to be morally wrong in order to survive.

When you say "ÿou can have communal property", the problem still remains. They must still purchase private property, because the system of capitalism does not allow for flexibility on the use rights provisions concerning private property. Perhaps internally, the community could regard the private property rights as communal, but in reality, that is, externally speaking, they are participating in the exploitation of capitalism; thus, this is at best, capitalism with concessions. 

Private property is a positive right, I will emphasize again. It is a right that does not naturally exist, but requires force to implement, or the threat thereof (coercion). It is is a right that some impose over others, a set of rules that everyone has to play by even if they don't want to play games, or want to play another game. Imagine if the only game anyone could play is Monopoly, and if you wanted to play "Life", or "Chess", or "Scrabble", or if you didn't want to play any games at all, you still were forced to play, because a group of people determined it was "natural" for everyone to play Monopoly, or Monopoly is the most efficient, reasonable, or beneficial game to play, or the only way for anyone to function in society is to play Monopoly. 

That is what capitalism is, and that is what private property is. Capitalism is the Monopoly game communists don't want to play, and private property is the system of rules of Monopoly that make the game so unbearable to play it. Do you know what real liberty is? It's not forcing communists, socialists, anarchists, or anyone else to play your stupid game.

While it's true that the communist is uninformed regarding the communist manifesto, the interviewer is misinformed regarding it. The communist manifesto clearly states that a central bank (not the Federal Reserve, which is actually a fractional reserve bank that is structured as a private corporation, advised by private sector (capitalist) representatives and economists, and having very little oversight or state control) is one of the ten items on a list (often referred to as the ten planks) of reforms to be implemented under state socialism. Communism, according to Marxism and the Communist Manifesto itself, is a stateless society, thus a central bank would not exist in a communist society.

Your belief cannot be helped, as it were, so no sense in beating yourself up about it, but if you did, you cannot be blamed, as it were.

The most historically ignorant line he's said the whole video: "it (socialism) conveys opposition to capitalism, and opposition to neomercantilism, as if these were one and the same...the function of these terms is to blur the distinction between neomercantilism and capitalism". Mr. Long, I suppose you have not studied the history of capitalism, or even read Adam Smith's work "On the Wealth of Nations", or any of the other works of classical economics concerning the origin of capitalism. If you had, it would be quite clear that capitalism is the direct descendant of mercantilism, making "neomercantilism" quite the fitting label.

Now you could argue that neomercantilism, understood as an a public policy theory concerning economics, is a particular implementation of capitalism, and that capitalism does not need to be neomercantilistic. Of course, this has never been the case, so you would be, in effect, arguing that capitalism isn't neomercantilism, it's this other historically nonexistent capitalism. But there's another word for that, we call it "anarcho-capitalism", which I consider personally to be a contradiction in terms, but at least it does not claim to be what it is not. 

I could go through the dozens of other logical fallacies and misconceptions he's made, but I don't have time to sort through the intellectually dishonest ramblings of a right-libertarian blogger at the moment, so this will have to suffice ;)

My elegant debunking of the so-called "voluntary contract" element of free market capitalism:

1. If you advocate a private property system that restricts the free and uninhibited productive use of land/resources to those that can afford to purchase them, then you are, by definition, restricting the rights of workers.

2. The act of working is voluntary IF they do not need wage employment to survive. For many workers, this is not the case. 

3. EVEN IF the act of working is voluntary, the conditions for employment and the compensation thereof is not up the worker at all. The employer decides what they will do, how they will do it, under what conditions they will work, and the compensation they will receive. Even if the worker is not forced by necessity of survival to work at a wage-labor job, they still have almost no choice whatsoever about the job itself.

In conclusion, the capitalist "voluntary contract" claim is fallacious, and when submitted to critical evaluation, fails utterly.

I hope to better streamline my Google+ content in the future, but for now, these are some of my interests. You can be certain that the vast majority of the content I have posted, and will post fall under that list, and thus will give you a pretty good idea of whether I'm worth following or not ^_^

I am a free-thinking, life-loving creative expressionist, and there are few things I love more than to inspire and be inspired by the whole of the world. I believe in living a life of Oneness manifested through Selfless Love, and it is my mission to find a way to get rid of all the selfishness in the world, along with the misunderstandings, prejudices, and misled self-righteousness that it fuels. http://about.me/nspyraishn

I also have in-depth knowledge of a variety of academic topics (including philosophy, psychology, information technology, Web 2.0, Linux, UI design, futurism, world religion, and the liberal arts). To top it off, I'm an accomplished psychic and diviner, but I won't expect you to take my word for it on that one.

Orange Coast is a decent community college with an impressive faculty, but its quality of education is curtailed by mediocre management, sub-par curricula, and a depressing absence of passion for education. When I first arrived at Orange Coast, it seemed to be one of the best community colleges out there- they had a relatively prestigious history, efficient transfer programs, and were well-connected with higher education and employment institutions. But these benefits have turned out to be mostly fluff, as they lack the robust educational programs to prepare the students for these opportunities. If you are a self-learner and don't need a strong social network to propel your education, Orange Coast is bursting with opportunities. Their textbooks aren't pretty, but the library is rich is academic treasures that can fill the gap of their failing curricula. If you're looking for excellent job-preparation programs, Orange Coast is one of the best-connected and vocationally-oriented colleges I've seen, and will amply prepare you for a $15/hour job to get you by. But if you're looking for a real college that provides a comprehensive and in-depth education, Orange Coast is not the correct choice. This college may be good when it comes to certificates and job training, but it's a bad choice for anyone looking for anything beyond an Associate's degree.

Today I went to Subway to order a BLT foot-long with avocado, and a soft drink. I ordered the sandwich with everything but onions, bell peppers, and cucumbers. My experience there was the best I've ever had of a fast food place: *Their service was extremely efficient, quick, and accurate. *They put in everything I wanted, and asked to verify if I wanted oil/vinegar, salt/pepper (which I did). *They were very courteous and professional *The food was fresh, and the portions (particularly of bacon and avocado) were generous and aesthetically-pleasing. If every person working at that Subway was as good as the man serving me was, This is definitely a Subway you gotta order food from, should you be in the area!
