    Wrong . If a government has no money to spend it can't spend. It can still represent the people..and have NO Authority. If the people retain that authority themselves.

    So you're suggesting that the fed should be able to force the cities to behave a certain way?

    The more I think about it, the more the whine about the Google / Amazon spat ticks me off. If Google has a stranglehold on on-demand video service, then letting Amazon refuse to carry it would open a market up to a competitor.

    Who granted the monopolies in the cities - the feds or the cities themselves? Because if it's the decision of the cities, the feds have no business getting involved.

    We deal with a lot of people contemplating suicide. Most people only talk about it and make half serious attempts to gain attention. The one's who actually want to commit suicide don't talk about it, they do it. I can see something like this in today's climate even if it's false (and maybe especially if it's false) resulting in some guy offing himself instead of putting his family through the witch trial to follow. It's a media affair where everyone outside of the immediate family is screaming for blood and it's as scary and real as a mob with torches and pitchforks...

    As DamienTV says, 'We'll see.' I've got a feeling it will be more of the 'ole cellular phone bill number-shuffle magic show where you don't actually save anything. At least with my phone, I could tell AT&T to go f'k themselves and switch back to Verizon. (then I can watch their magic show, lol). Not the greatest of options, mind you, but it's more options than I have in the broadband industry.

    The main driver of incentives and innovation is competition. Without that, it doesn't really matter how they choose to package and sell their data plans, or 'monetize' if you prefer the term. I'm a gamer, so I'll use Electronic Arts as a publisher for an example. EA started getting sh*tty when they began publishing half-finished games that fell short of buyer expectations and then releasing downloadable content to squeeze some extra bucks from their customers in order to enjoy the full experience. Monetize? You bet! They monetized the ever loving f'k out of their products. Now, there's nothing illegal about doing that, but it's generally not good business practice and EA's competitors caught on. Over the years, independent developers have risen up and challenged the major developers like EA, and that is going to be the only thing, if anything, that keeps EA honest. Bona-fide competition. Otherwise EA will fall from the top, deservedly so. EA's days are numbered when someone can design a game from their home and submit it to the Steam community for a greenlight. Relatively speaking, it's one of the easiest markets to enter, especially with crowdfunding where gamers can get involved early in game development and suggest things they would like to see implemented into the games before they are finished and released. The result, in most cases, is a game that is almost perfectly catered to the wishes of the consumer, rather than what some lead designer in front of an isolated office high-rise drawing-board merely *thinks* will sell really well. In the gaming world, it seems the free market is still alive and well. However, such open competition simply does not exist throughout the ISP world. Barriers to entry have made it extremely cost-prohibitive for upstart ISPs to build into an area where an incumbent ISP is already established. It is precisely these companies who have used the bully-stick of governments over the years to fortify their monopolies, and then complained when government tried to regulate them. Boo hoo I say. I'm sorry but, you'll never see me waving a banner of capitalist freedom for their sake. When they stop behaving like corporatists, I'll blow the whistle on things like Net Neutrality.

    Yes, well, I've had one broadband ISP provider in my area for the last decade. Probably will have one cable ISP provider for the next decade. I suppose I'm fortunate that Cox Communications, at least in my experience, hasn't treated their customers like utter sh*t compared to Comcast or Time Warner. My father lived in Jacksonville FL and I've heard horror stories of Comcast. But, there are no competitors in my area. Net Neutrality or it's repeal didn't change that. I might see some difference in how they choose to bill me. But one company in an area changing its billing strategies is not the same as having competition. That's probably been the weakest argument from the pro-repeal side since day one.

    I think there were companies who stood to benefit either way. I have very little faith that a lawyer who worked for Verizon pushed this repeal purely out of love for free markets. Now if he can just push for FCC repeals that actually bring competition into the broadband marketplace, we'll be all set. I've got a feeling Ajit Pai is gonna stop short of that, though.

    About how fewer, ya figure? Like fewer than in a pay to play enforcement environment world?;) The quantity vs quality insight helps me understand where you're coming from. Thanks. Some folks value mutually beneficial exchanges based on relationships that don't beg for enforcement rather than mutually beneficial relationships that do beg for enforcement. Ancapistan doesn't already have enough mutually beneficial exchanges without contract enforcement? As a part-time resident of Ancapistan, *ahem*, I am not buying that.

If you don't see it as sharing wisdom, please give me your understanding of how your scenario of borrowing is better/preferred to Smith and Jones not lending/ borrowing and introducing enforcement. Thanks.

    I just started looking at the Constitution Party platform since you recommended it awhile back. There are some good things in it, but there are also some concessions to statism that I think are dangerous despite the fact that I'm moving away from strict anarcho-capitalist libertarianism. They support regulation of "obscenity", which isn't really defined, they support some drug restrictions, and they are careful to show their respect for agents of our currently illegitimate state (veterans), as well as condemning attempts to cut their benefits despite the fact that they are paid out of our pockets and for participating in unjust wars for an unjust system.

    The Constitution Party isn't all bad, and I might support some of their candidates, but I don't think there is any party I can support on principle (LP is pro-choice so not an option) I respect strict theonomy even though I'm not sure I agree with it yet. I don't think anybody believes what I'm starting to believe these days.

    OK, so my question is, with relations to Galatians, how is it that you can call Roman Catholics on this board "brothers" even though they add works to the gospel just like the Judaizers did? How is adding baptism as a requirement in order to be saved any different than adding circumcision as a requirement?

    Out of curiosity, how do you interpret Galatians 1:8-9 and 2 John 9-11?
