    Maybe you should fucking look up the definition of monopoly. But allow me to quote from the same article you oddly decided would be good fodder:

    Liberals and Libertarians agree that public/private collusion is a bad thing. It's just the solutions we disagree on. Human nature is human nature...Amazon isn't going to pay .01 more than they have to. Workers aren't ever going to go home at night and say, "Yes, that's a perfectly fair wage for this job that requires very little special skills." And politicians are going to use tax money to buy votes.

    Proof That Men Do Remember A woman awakes during the night to find that her husband is not in bed. She puts on her robe and goes downstairs to look for him. She finds him sitting at the kitchen table with a hot cup of cocoa in front of him. He appears to be in deep thought, just staring at the wall. She watches as he wipes a tear from his eye and takes a sip of his hot cocoa. "What's the matter, dear?" she whispers as she steps into the room. "Why are you down here at this time of night?" The husband looks up from his cocoa, "It's the 20th anniversary of the day we met." She can't believe he has remembered and starts to tear up. The husband continues, "Do you remember 20 years ago when we started dating? I was 18 and you were only 16," he says solemnly. Once again, the wife is touched to tears thinking that her husband is so caring and sensitive. "Yes, I do" she replies. The husband pauses. The words were not coming easily. "Do you remember when your father caught us in the back seat of my car?" "Yes, I remember," said the wife, lowering herself into a chair beside him. The husband continued, "Do you remember when he shoved the shotgun in my face and said, 'Either you marry my daughter or I will send you to prison for 20 years?'" "I remember that, too," she replied softly. He wiped another tear from his cheek and said, "I would have gotten out today." Then the fight started!!

    Amen! Bravo! Let's have some more relevant and truly thought-provoking quotes: " 'The theory of the Communists,' write Marx and Engels, 'may be summed up in the single sentence: Abolition of private property.' But here, private property remains untouched. The productive apparatuses are to be fully automated, removing workers as much as possible from every stage of the production process: who, then, will own them? Who will own the commodities that these apparatuses produce? And if humanity is unburdened from the need to work and left to produce freely in the pursuit of its own self-expression, who will own that? Without anything to oppose bourgeois property, the result could be fully monstrous: a bloated, gluttonous ruling class engaged in limitless production, and recapturing any losses when the new peons come to spend their universal basic pittance. The propertied classes would fuse with an automaton that requires no human parts except for ownership to form a single apparatus; Utopia as a cyborg dictatorship. "This future has, in fact, already been described – it’s E.M. Forster’s 1909 science-fiction story The Machine Stops. Here, all of humanity lives in tiny cells within the body of the vast subterranean Machine. The Machine produces all their consumer goods, it provides them with anything they might want or need at a moment’s notice, it speaks to them, and allows them to speak to each other through video-messaging. People tend not to leave their cells; it’s not forbidden, but it’s certainly not encouraged. Full automation. Universal basic income. A networked society. In the end the Machine starts to slowly disintegrate. Billions die, and Forster, who had something of a reactionary streak, can only see this as a good thing. Who owns the Machine? The Machine does." – The Future Has Already Happened, Sam Kriss And a delicious word stew:

    Insisting that evil Amazon should be forced into paying over a market wage means you're siding against the free market. We can agree that this isn't a free market, but moar force isn't the Libertarian solution. Let the workers starve. When they reach a point where they can't pay their bills any longer, their children are hungry at night, they will seek employment elsewhere, or they will seek a way to make themselves more valuable . Or they'll vote for people who promise to force Amazon to pay them more even though they're not worth more. Congratulations - you win. I can't stand the appeal to emotion nonsense. My life is 10 times harder than that of some guy working at an Amazon warehouse. If I can do it, so can he.

    “Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience. They may be more likely to go to Heaven yet at the same time likelier to make a Hell of earth. This very kindness stings with intolerable insult. To be 'cured' against one's will and cured of states which we may not regard as disease is to be put on a level of those who have not yet reached the age of reason or those who never will; to be classed with infants, imbeciles, and domestic animals.” -- C.S. Lewis, "God in the Dock: Essays on Theology (Making of Modern Theology)"

    I'd like to archive an epitaph to this thread. as a footnote: I currently live literally 2 football fields away from the 'official' Alister Crowley temple and library run by his grandson Mark. Well.. I did.... That was until this past summer when I literally watched it burn on a very windy night around 9:30pm from my home. It was spectacular. I mean it. It sat perched on a hillside with a winding single lane driveway to the top. Flames were 40-50 feet in the air and fire trucks were lined up along the bottom watching it burn. We ended up with Mark Crowley's 2 daughters staying at our house for several weeks. The family lived at the temple/library. I took them to school... we had 1 of their dogs for about a week. (didn't make it... smoke inhalation/lung damage.)

    Your point is good, and very clearly true. It's undeniable, yes? Does anyone here wish to try to deny it? Societies are designed and planned. This is not done by a Central Committee meeting once a week in a high chamber, but it is done. It is planned by the whole community, organically, with the most intelligent and the most invested men steering developments most strongly, naturally, organically. Societies are large complexes of variables, and few indeed are the variables that stand unaffected by changes in any of the others. Inviting in 100 million third-world peasants to live with us, as we have, is a variable that has consequences. Massively promoting and subsidizing the buying of everything through mail-order (sorry, got to use the hip new term: "online") is another variable with consequences. At some point we, the people, are going to have to start caring about our communities again and consciously thinking and acting in regards to "what is going to make this a great place for my children and grandchildren and great-grandchildren to live and thrive?" Right now, our living places are fast becoming not only not great, but not even human. Inhuman. Our way of living is getting hosed. There's more to life than the free market. There's free-dom. People aren't just consumptive bots that happen to have low tensile strength. They don't like to be, anyway. They have souls. They like to have souls.

    Thank you for agreeing with me! I'm glad someone besides me cares about preserving the existence of a coherent language, as a prerequisite to thought, intelligence, communication, and indeed to living life as a rational, Western human. Confusion: I was not making an argument. If there was an argument, there would have been an "A, thus B, thus C." See? I'm sorry that, as a side-casualty of my comment, I may have made the article's claims look bad by pointing out the author wrote poorly. I just wanted to make my comment. Language is important. Literacy is important. When the time comes that everyone is too much of an illiterate moron for me to even hope to even convey any of my thoughts to them coherently, I will probably wish I would have spent more time and energy preserving language -- the essential substrate that makes that possible -- and less time arguing about issues (such as the relative quantity of aluminum in vaccination shots) that are not even possible to understand without language, and a nice, rigorous, cleanly-defined language at that. The quantity of rigorous understanding evinced in the debate occurring in this thread suggests to me that alarm is in fact called for -- the process of cognitive disintegration is already well along.

* Enforce Border Security – America should be guarding her own borders and enforcing her own laws instead of policing the world and implementing UN mandates.

* No Amnesty - The Obama Administration’s endorsement of so-called “Comprehensive Immigration Reform,” granting amnesty to millions of illegal immigrants, will only encourage more law-breaking.

* Abolish the Welfare State – Taxpayers cannot continue to pay the high costs to sustain this powerful incentive for illegal immigration. As Milton Friedman famously said, you can’t have open borders and a welfare state.

* End Birthright Citizenship – As long as illegal immigrants know their children born here will be granted U.S. citizenship, we’ll never be able to control our immigration problem.

that hosting a picture in a thread isn't this hard for everybody. But linking straight to it was a disaster in that it was HUGE - filled up the whole page on the laptop. I downloaded it and then tried to insert it from my desktop, but no luck.

So here it is: a picture of a humidifier (maybe) with absolutely no relevant text to go with it. If it's relevant text you want, go here.
