    Default Optimal Policies for Avoiding World War III and Civil War II

    1. Institute a policy of free trade (both domestically and internationally)

    A. Under the umbrella of domestic free trade:
    a Legalize competing currencies
    b Legalize all substances
    c Sell all public land expect Court Houses and Police departments, for now, to the highest bidder
    D Legalize all acts except crimes with a victim (No victim, no crime)

    B. Under the umbrella of international free trade:
    a Pull military back from around the world (Navy sent to the coasts, Army sent to the boarders)
    b Abolish passports and allow citizens freedom of travel
    c Allow goods and people to flow freely across boarders

    2. Stop talking about the LVT
    "If a nation expects to be ignorant and free, in a state of civilization, it expects what never was and never will be." - Thomas Jefferson

    "It does not require a majority to prevail, but rather an irate, tireless minority keen to set brush fires in people's minds" - Sam Adams

    I stopped at ~10 minutes. It plays fast and loose with facts-very deceptive to those who aren't versed in these sort of topics. (IOW, propaganda)

    A poor attention span. You must try harder. You really must. Harrison is 100% factually correct.

    But you need an underlying mechanism to ensure that, and that speculation in the earth's resources are reduced, or eliminated.

    Sell all public land expect Court Houses and Police departments, for now, to the highest bidder
    I wonder what that would achieve.

    Under the umbrella of international free trade:
    a Pull military back from around the world (Navy sent to the coasts, Army sent to the boarders)
    You obviously want WW3

    I like the way Harrison points out the historical facts of how some wars came about and how the mechanisms were there to prevent them and governmnest were alerted but ignored them. Each time before major conflicts, the same mistakes were made.

    Interesting that Adam Smith told British government to impose a land tax as it was in debt, instead of taxing those in the American colonies. It caused a war in which many died.

    I like the way Harrison goes into how colonialism came about - greed for land. And how surplus people (to the landowners) were moved off the land into the colonies (the Highland clearances in Scotland and the Enclosures in England). And how the want of land and its resources caused the migration west in North America displacing the people and how Hitler wanted the land and resources of the east and then decided to remove the people by death camps and starvation.

    War came about because of economics - greed for LAND and its RESOURCES in many cases - as the profits were easy.

    If Capitalism is a process for killing people, what were the fascist Nazis and Italians? Or the Communist Russians and Maoist Chinese? That they combined to kill over 100,000,000 people in about 40 years is astonishing.

    Say what you will about modern capitalism, but it's done more to bring peace and prosperity to the great mass of people than anything else.

    Equating capital (subjective value) with killing is about as retarded a statement one can make. EcoWarrier is trolling so hard it's actually comical.

    No different than saying "Dogs equate horses!!!" DERPA DERPA DERPA.

    No, I simply have a low tolerance for BS, propaganda, and spin. If it was rational and logical, I would've watched the whole thing. Harrison is not factually correct.

    He was analyzing Capitalism and its historical record. Nazism was Capitalist as well. He wasn't saying one was better than the other at killing people.

    The point the man was making was that the current version of Capitalism has NOT brought peace and prosperity because of the economic system we use. He gave the examples of carnage from 1770s onwards.

    His solution is turn to land and its resources and concentrate internally not look over the seas.

    You never watched it. Try harder. It dispelles the jumble bouncing around your head.

    I alerted people to the lecture - which he points out, we have all the points accumulating for a world war. Look. Don't take my word for it.
