    Yes it does, because once a US state could leave, that changes the taxes, GDP of the US. The security issues, migration. Why don't you understand that? If Scotland was attacked and was independent, does it not concern England or Ireland's security? Don't forget all those so called welfare projects, help all of you people. Just like a guy who called into radio show I watched months back on youtube sounded a lot like a selfish person who thinks saving a few dollars is the best way to have a cheaper education. Did he pay for the roads he drove on? Or get help with his house or car. The selfishness and silly attitudes people have, is sad. Some of you need a dose of your own medicine, you are being crass. So long as it doesn't affect me, that is fine, screw everybody else.

    You created that problem, and are a part of it. And for your information, Iceland has a woman prime minister who is Green, her party which believes in peace and having a nice environment go hand in hand, and is against the membership of the treaty, quite rare in that country. But they are in coalition and and are the minority on that view. It was a founding member, and never wanted to be in it. But, it is okay to be a little island with a now 350,000 population, it was much smaller many years back. And hold such a view, when the security of the region is paid for by Canada and the US, and Britain, Italy. It is easy for any MP who is Green to express this, so long as they aren't having to put on the uniform or flight outfit to fly above their skies. Ireland hasn't got the economy for fighter jets. They only use these since 2004. https://www.military.ie/en/who-we-are/air-corps/the-fleet/pilatus-pc-9m/ They had some very old jets from the 1950's for a little while in service up until about thirty years ago. But they were useless.

    Quite right. But this is also America's doing partly, since they want to live the drive everywhere lifestyle. And nobody can change this, or wants to, or wants to feel inconvenience. So that is one problem. And those world problems would eventually affect those people who do want to leave from the US sphere. So it is interconnected this right there, it sucks! But that is the modern for you.

    Yeah, the US keeps the trade going, you make it sound as if only the conflicts destroy everything, what would no influence look like? Sounds like you don't want to think more in depth about this problem of the world. Down the road from where I live a flooding happened, but it didn't affect me where. This is how you see the world, in the view of being an American. You can't look at it like it is just a water pipe rupture down the road.

    You or anyone may not like that. But you pay for Iceland's defense, do you not? How many Canadian or US Sorties over Iceland over the years. I was thinking with Ireland's continued EU membership they may have to contribute to the EU's security, and they don't want to be a part of that. May be they have to eventually assist in that. You are proposing Scotland go it alone, in the free market, and not be a member of the UN, I am sure. But that has real world implications for the UK. Nuclear weapons, power, influence. Just withdrawing and going it alone in the modern world of just in time deliveries to the super market, just seems crazy. What happens in one part of the world has an affect on all of us. Burying your head is what you are doing, until the day you need assistance paid for by somebody else's dosh. It is perspective. May be the withdrawal from Syria is nothing to anybody except those who unfortunately in that mess. But the US can't be smaller and not have some influence over the world to maintain some order, otherwise others will. In an ideal world of liberty, and property, and honestly you could live in a world being an opportunist opt out to everything doesn't affect you as you may think, but it is wrong. Just like a Texan civil war would have an affect on the neighbours and cause security problems all through the US.

    You want to live in a world where everything falls into place, a quick fix. There isn't one. Many countries economies and living standards would change, the smaller ones as a result of no world order by America. The Russian head of state claimed the west are the empires today. But his own country won't tolerate many movements that expand debate, and his society doesn't do democratic elections very well either, it isn't in their history. It is so recent. No nation that has a large economy remains within its borders, sooner or later profiteering and consumption will happen, especially the latter.

    I wish I had thought of the idea of just paying people money. It wouldn't solve all problems, but it would everybody. Obviously, I wouldn't know how it would be paid for, but technology is the answer to that. Remember the corporation steals, the tech companies steals, they are ruining your society. I don't know how you think the future can be better, by simply living in the past, innovation brings radical change, and it is beginning now. So there needs to be a way to deal with this change. And Yang proposes something that no Democrat could think of.

    That is where you wrong. In the state you live in, once your home state is independent, then you need to watch your neighbors because they aren't bound by a constitution. It is easy to dream about an independent country, but the reality of changing it, would lead to other problems in the region. And then I expressed the Irish depend on a peaceful world, so they support the world power. This is naive thinking, oh I don't give a damn. This isn't about a water problem down the road. Seriously. And quite doubt many Americans would want to put up with the tyranny of liberty, hardship, that is the true reality of that world. It must suck to live a world where you live by authority, that means nothing to you, and you think nobody matters to you, and you think you can do just fine on your own. This is the world we live in, not a dream.

    That is your christian thinking, quite right. Well, it isn't my idea, Yang arrived, and woke me up. I couldn't believe what I was hearing. It sounded so refreshing, somebody who wants to give everybody money to make something of their lives or live on it, spend it locally. It can only work because of the tech. In the past it would been seen as just a gimmick.

    Yes you are wrong, you think you see an ass on tv, using welfare, and then being employed on the side, which happens in the Uk especially for those who live alone, fall on challenging times. This is the wrong way to look at the benefit system. The corporate powers get away more than anyone on the dole, that is my point. There are bigger places to target before anyone at the bottom in society.

    This doesn't work, that is why welfare exists, not everybody will have friends or family they can depend on. Charity doesn't work. Stealing may be wrong whether it be government job, or benefit for the unemployed or what ever. Because it is a form of aggression, but there is sure a worse situation than that. Because not everybody is christian or even if so, is a christian. Just faith for the sake of using it as a crutch.

    It was easier because there was more of everything, and it was cheaper. Not all employment required skill sets or academics. You don't understand in this society that is everywhere. Yang is correct that the introduction of change in the retail sector is the first step to the last low/unskilled employment being reformed by computers. Then Mcdonalds will have robotics to prepare and cook the burgers. The beginning of the use of robots in drink establishments. He sees the future. One self driving truck on one particular route will be a threat to others. He needs to be taken seriously, communism may of failed. But liberty has yet to solve the future. He at least is taking the initiative. I like his open minded ideas. He's a geek, with a good brain. I have never been so fascinated with a wannabee politician before. It was like when I liked Paul's foreign policy idea, it sounded as if it was an end to the status quo, but that is naive. There will always be threats in the world, competing groups of people, have done for centuries. So standing Armies will always be needed, even if the Arms trade could end, how do you end, you can't end guns in American, you can't end them anywhere. If Corbyn was in downing street, he'd face opposition to ending the Trident system, the Arms civilian businesses. The GDP, taxes, all this would go. If Ireland was serious about living in a peaceful world, they'd take their case to the UN. And then be fucked over business wise by your country. And the end to their small deployments of UN flag wavers. That is the only worth for their quaint useless military. Only then to wake up in a world without America.:confused:

    Why do you keep burying your head? You are completely out of touch on what is happening in Arizona, you must really think you are still living in the 20th century west. So much wishy washy delusion about the real state of society in this part of the world. Go live in a communist society, if you want some assistance, blah blah. You people don't want anything better, you want to live in a society where people work hard if and where they can, and people not as fortunate don't deserve anything except for what they earn, as if everybody is lucky, when you create a society with the haves, and the have nots, especially the largest profiteers it just ends badly. You want to live in a capitalist society that doesn't devour us all in some way, and then get rid of corporate corruption. How is a capitalist society suppose to not do that, there is no free market and even if there were, I doubt society would be okay, because regulation is bad in all forms? And that doesn't stop somebody from creating more profit for themselves at the expense of the employees.

    You don't care about what really matters in life, you seem to want everybody to have it bad like when all of you were very young. I couldn't but remind myself of a comment on youtube about Yang, somebody expressed it was like nobody wanted anyone to succeed in life. Yang's proposal would help a lot of people in your society. It is worth trying.

    None of you butt wipes do the fighting, it is always the working class, who left high school with few good grades. Of course the Modern Army requires some education and has done for a while. On the one hand, a religious nutty world, while at the same time, the conflicts of interest of living a nice comfortable live while many in the world don't want to take up the role of a UN shared policing of the world. Only the poor countries with no empire history do, and the bigger bullies and former empires, and bullies still play their dominate games for resources and power, money. This is the real world, so Mr paul lives in a naive world of if you leave us alone, we will leave you alone. Deep down, those top US generals know a good few of their top brass will be out of a job, but at the same time, they made their mess by living a society that wanted to drive a car everywhere.

    Well it is, Mr sociopaths, no care about anyone else but yourselves. If you want the world to have no leadership, then every other country would need to take turns at policing the world. You think the US can be like Mongolia or Iceland. If Iceland had to have a talk with Nato, they then may leave and have nobody to defend them. They considered a defense, but in 2007 they voted no to any, I guess since they were too small in numbers for anything credible. May be a Kosovan security type force, but it is weak, a nice example of a small security, no official standing Army apparatus or uniforms.

    This is what I mean, especially about you. You seem to think, oh the people who question the idea of a regional deployment, don't get that in order maintain your way of life, somebody has to do so. It is easy to get trapped into thinking well, if our country just leaves, it will be fine. While the Irish have never had to deal with terrorism except for what happened in the 1970's in Dublin, they don't face direct threat from the Middle East because they are small, and only have the reputation for peacekeeping there, like Lebanon. In truth, it just gives the Irish citizens who serve a wage, and a pension. So it is artificial, they don't have an arms trade, and they are neutral, but aligned for peace with Nato, and take a US focus on the world. And are part of the EU that supports their economy. But in truth, they are protected by the UK, EU and US. They don't have to fight the wars or do what the US does, or Britain or France.

Live like Mongolia. Or how it used to, it still is the way it is, but it has changed.

But nobody at the time, could see the bigger picture. I had mixed views, but reality is the way it is for some. Forty minutes long, episode one. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GFcQevflStk
