    You'd have to study it. Anarcho-capitalism is diametrically opposed to anarcho-leftism (normal-variety anarchism). Everything they want, we hate. And vise versa.

    As I already said, 3-point-oh, I have no interest in debating with you. You win! (I win, too, because I don't have to have that pointless, negative experience.) Just call me a bunkum idiot and reiterate how many charts you have found to confirm your sense and call it a day, man! Victory!

    Many people are indeed not intelligent enough to make good long-term choices for themselves. A long, long time ago, smart people recognized this. They realized that stupid people exist. This was one of the smartest realizations they had ever made, by the way. And so they decided that they would create elaborate, pervasive social systems to pressure, cajole, harass, and pidgeon-hole the stupid people into not making decisions quite so catastrophically stupid, at least on major life decisions. They cut off the most disastrously stupid decisions from consideration, took them off the table. Now most of this consisted of parenting systems, and other familial means. Then there was community inclusion and approval vs. ostracism and run-out-of-town. Finally overarching cultural values, spread in literature, commerce, and art, forming a common language and bond. Lastly, yes, there was some attempt to modify behavior via the brute force of the state. But this last was, and is, largely ineffective. It is an impotent solution that traditional people are now turning to in desperation because the other methods are crumbling. But it's impotent. It does not have the power to turn the tide. It does not have the power to do much of anything. But the general idea of attempting to control stupid people's behavior is sound. It is called: Civilization.

    Substance? Substance? Substance of what issue? You are arguing that the book Biohistory is bunkum, despite not having read it and knowing nothing about it. OK. There is your issue. I have been... well, not exactly arguing that it isn't bunkum, rather just discussing and putting forth some of the ideas in it, as well as my own ideas. Am I interested in having an argument with someone who forms opinions about book without having read them? Answer: Guess. Follow-up: Am I interested in having an argument with an anonymous internet personality who for the past year has chosen to be unrelentingly negative, scowling, sneering, and hateful? Who has shown interest in, or even respect for, anyone else's ideas precisely ZERO times during that year? You are like a dark cloud in every thread that you come into. Your negativity and vitriol is inexhaustible. It never stops. Do I want to have any sort of interaction with that? Despite this, I will "address" your "substance" thus: that is nice that you were able to unearth American FBI statistics from 1991 to 2010. What a herculean task that must have been for you. However, that is not actually particularly interesting, relevant, or noteworthy. I think we were all aware that crime has been going down recently. Why is that? The spread of shall-issue concealed-carry laws and other pro-self-defense legislation, and also the increasing strength of self-defense culture, have both contributed to this. The fact that we have undergone a massive increase in the number of the criminals who are currently locked up in prison, and thus have been taken off the streets, also likely plays a very large role.

    By the way, I have unraveled your behavior, including your "sense" on this, so just to clear something up: You sense that it's bunkum because you sense that it somehow lines up with Stephan Molyneux (the title character of this thread, after all) and that thus any sort of agreement with it would be supporting his agenda. And you also sense that it probably somehow has anti-immigration implications, because you're always on the alert for that. Neither of these things you "sense," however, happen to be correct. True that Mr. Molyneux had James Penman on his show for one episode, but to my knowledge he has never discussed the ideas of Biohistory since. Now before this past Saturday, when I listened to one episode, I had not had time to listen to Mr. Molyneux's show for several months, so some regular listener may correct me if I'm wrong. So while I am grateful to him for introducing me to these fascinating ideas, they do not seem to have held the same fascination to him, do not line up with his agenda, and do not feature on his program (in contrast to r vs. K reproductive theory, which does). Also there is no anti-immigration implication whatsoever. Biohistory has nothing to say about immigration being any kind of problem, much less implying that it needs to be controlled. You express a seething hate for Stephan Molyneux, just as, actually, you express seething hate for most prominent libertarians (Lew Rockwell, Tom Woods, Justin Raimondo, Walter Block, etc., etc., etc.). Fine. You express a bitter, scowling hate for any position on immigration policy other than your own (totally unlimited, uncontrolled, mass peasant migration) and indeed this is the one and only policy issue you lately express any passion about or care about at all. Fine. But what this means is that your sense that you must not like Biohistory is a mis-sense. Biohistory has nothing to do with Molyneux nor with immigration limitation. So you don't have an obligation to hate it. What a relief! See, this is sometimes the risk you face when forming an opinion about a book based on your sense, despite not having read it and knowing nothing about it.

    Hi Muwahid. There are many instances in the Old Testament where the coming of God as the Messiah is alluded to. Jesus fulfilled scores of prophecies. Indeed, statistically speaking, the evidence is overwhelming. We Christians believe Christ is one with God because of His sinless life, His many miracles, and most of all, because He said so. Had He called Himself just a Prophet, that is what we Christians would believe. Had He called Himself just a Teacher, that is what we would believe. But the confession that God took upon our nature in order to save our race has ALWAYS been the cry and confessions of the Christians. Why? Because that is the Gospel Christ came to preach to the world, and those who have ears will listen. Had He not risen from the dead, history would have forgotten about Him long long ago. But because He did rise from the dead, (since death could not hold the very Life-Giving Word of God), because His disciples did see Him ascend into Heaven in glory as King and Judge, because He truly did keep His promise to send down the Holy Spirit of God, these disciples freely gave their lives confessing this fact. So too today, innumerable are the Christians who do the same, even while under intense persecution and discrimination, because it is the same Holy Spirit who strengthens them and sanctifies them. What Islam emphasizes is what it emphasizes, but it does not supplant what God has revealed through the mystery of the Incarnation. For God willed that through the Incarnation, He might take upon Himself our nature, out of divine and immeasurable love, so that He might lift us up as sons and daughters by grace. This is the great paradox which has shaken the world, that God would die for us, so that we might live. This is the God Whom the Christians worship - the God of love and revelation. Only in the Crucifixion, does our fallen nature find redemption. Only in the Resurrection, do we find life after death. Only in the Ascension, do we find salvation and entrance into the Kingdom of Heaven.

    Sadly, I have lost interest in discussing, debating, or explaining immigration restriction on this forum for the time being. But that's OK, because I'm pretty sure you never had any such interest in this issue at any time. Yes? So now we're even.

    And I'm still trying to figure out how using a lower case 'g' is somehow more respectful and pious in the modern English language than using a capitalized 'G' for the word God. BTW, I am NOT accusing it of being disrespectful, because I don't believe that is orafi's intent, I just find it a bit confusing since it is usually the atheists and agnostics who use lower case 'g' for the word God.

    People have the capacity to reason. You don't need to always show them the whole thing. A strong statement telling them that they are wrong is often all you need to do. Then they do the rest, at least when the other person can think.

    If they're feeling like idiots, they will feel bad. Feeling bad makes people try to do something different to feel better. So they might just go ahead and think and stop being idiots.

    If you can't "let it pass" then that is your problem. You should resolve it through private messages. When you use public threads you make it everyone else's problem. Just use your head is all.
