    For those of you interested in the study of strategy, Serpents and Doves by James Loriega is a worthwhile read. He draws parallels between the strategic thinking of shinobijutsu (what Hollywood calls "ninjutsu") and the writings of Baltasar Gracian, a 17th century Jesuit philosopher. Gracian was an astute observer of human relations, as the opening line of his 13th Aphorism demonstrates: It can be purchased here: http://www.lulu.com/shop/james-loriega/serpents-and-doves-the-shinobi-wisdom-of-baltasar-gracian/paperback/product-23384676.html I have no financial interest whatsoever in this volume, in case anyone was wondering. Have a good weekend and don't do anything I wouldn't do.

    Much of the immigration has to do with bombing the ME - if this was stopped things may look a bit different. Also, up until the end of the 19 century, the age of consent in both Europe & the US was usually 10-12 yrs old. Some places it was as high as 13, while in others it was as low as 7. So while in a modern day POV a man from the middle ages might look evil for having a child-wife, in that day and setting, it was not evil and was fairly commonplace. And, I am a Christian Minister.

    Yep. The Blue Heroes will continue to shoot innocents with their hands cuffed behind them, for fear of their lives, but will never enter a real situation where a shootout was actually necessary. If that school had not been a "gun-free" zone, the teacher, that gave his life for those kids, could of brought the killer down in a heartbeat. But we can't have that, now can we. :rolleyes:

    Yes, money printing never affects all prices equally and simultaneously; the new money begins its life in a specific place and gradually spreads, raising prices unequally and at different times in different sectors, advantaging earlier users of the money over later users (Cantillon effects). This is the only reason it causes problems in the first place. If everyone woke up tomorrow to find that all of their cash balances had magically increased one-million-fold, there would be no change in relative prices, no change in the production structure, no bubble, no redistribution of wealth, and consequently no point in printing the money in the first place.

    Yes, an ethical claim, contra a factual claim. A factual claim is a claim about something existing in empirical reality, something which can be empirically verified. "Look," I say while pointing to the dog in front of us, "the dog has four legs." I am referring to something existing in empirical reality, which you can verify with your own eyes. Not so with "Look at that car, Bob owns it." Look at what? All that's there is a car. There is nothing about the car which indicates who owns it. No one can empirically verify who owns it. Ownership is a concept, not a property of physical things. As for your several excerpts about the nature of law, they are entirely beside the point. Whether law is imposed from above, from the armchair, out of pure theory, or emerges from below, ala the common law, it consists of ethical statements ("someone should or should not do this or that"), not statements of fact ("something is or is not the case"). Likewise, however the specific legal rules are formulated (purely mechanistically or otherwise), they remain ethical not factual statements. As for Hoppe's claim that all ethical systems are sets of rules governing property rights, it is, once again, both true and totally irrelevant. The point is that argumentation ethics fails, contrary to all of your/Hoppe's assertions, to prove that only libertarian property rules can be advanced in argument without contradiction.

    Peter Schiff thinks the ECB will have to stop printing when inflation gets above 2% because the Germans won't allow it. But yeah, it could be the cleanest dirty shirt thing that is helping the dollar. But theoretically if everyone hyperinflated their currency the dollar index would remain unchanged. So eventually physics has to catch up. I'm sure you've heard the "ink in a tub of water" anology regarding inflation. Maybe the ink landed on the stock market and now it's moving into the rest of the economy. If that's true, then stocks will go down and general prices will go up.

    Actually, I have many clues on what's going and have proven it in this thread repeatedly. No matter how much y'all want to argue that it's different, it's actually nearly the exact same as stock market exchanges. One could even call it a stock market for man buns lol. If you don't understand fundamentally how the stock exchanges work then you'll never understand what I'm posting. I don't have any skin in the crypto game so I can look at it from the 10,000 feet perspective. Y'all with skin in the game can't do that, for obvious reasons, but that's human nature. It's another banker game, like it or not, so the same rules apply. Nothin' new under the sun... This is an example of the fundamental misunderstanding y'all have about stock markets, and by extension, crypto markets. You never own a share of stock even if you have a certificate. A stock certificate is a usage title (called equitable title), it is not an ownership title. It is the "tag" I keep referring to. Legal ownership of the stock is held by a Fed holding company! The "coin" in your crypto wallet is the equivalent of that stock title. It is a tag, an equitable title, but it is not legal ownership. Why is that? Because according to old banking philosophy, slaves can't own anything. Slaves can only use something for the benefit of the slave owner, slaves can not own.

    To add a little meat to the bones, what would you say to the following method: There's still a teacher, but his job in neither to lecture nor drink coffee while the students gossip while trying to look busy do an in-class activity. Rather, his job would be to (a) assign readings based on his expertise in the subject, (b) moderate an online forum, where students could ask questions or discuss things among themselves , and (c) create and grade whatever assessments he thinks are appropriate (exams, essays, etc). What's cut out is class time itself, as well as the pure waste that is the time going to/from class or doing related administrative tasks. The teacher:student ratio would be much lower, with the result that costs would be lower and/or the school could pay higher salaries per teacher, to obtain better teachers. And of course the time not spent in class makes possible more reading, lengthier/more complex reading assignments from the teacher. For instance, instead of 3 hours in-class and 6 hours of independent reading, you would have 9 hours of independent reading.

    The "ASIA FOR THE ASIANS, AFRICA FOR THE AFRICANS, WHITE COUNTRIES FOR EVERYBODY!..." text that The Count posted earlier is known as "The Mantra." It was written by Bob Whitaker, originator of the term "white genocide" and hero of the white nationalist/supremacist movement. That text is something like a biblical verse for them, like an extract from the "Turner Diaries," or similar pap.

    I'm of the view that people learn best through independent study, specifically by reading, but this runs contrary to prevailing theories of education, which emphasize the need for student-teacher (or student-student) interaction. This latter school of thought is the source of the obsession with student-teacher ratios and of the increasing use of in-class "activities" in lieu of the traditional lecture. I'd call that fluff, with very little educational value, which serves primarily to justify astronomical and ever-increasing educational costs, driven by over-staffed schools. But the traditional lecture format is also flawed. It's a relic of the medieval period, when - before the advent of the printing press - books were extremely expensive, and so it was economical for a professor to read a book, with or without adding his own commentary, to an audience, contra each student purchasing his own copy. This system was obsolete with the advent of cheaply printed paper books, not to mention the ebook and the internet. If reading is truly the essence of education, there is no need for "classes" at all, and the cost of education can be reduced to virtually nothing. So, we can think of three categories of education: 1. The traditional, lecture-based class 2. The new age activities-based class 3. Independent study, with no class at all Which method do you favor?
