If we want then to disappear, why do we want them to say anything?
Great point. I've been saying this for years, but never so concisely.

Re: From both sides?

Hey they're your assumptions. Why don't you tell us why that is. If you don't want money, don't use money. But if you're going to trade you're going to need a medium of exchange. And if you're going to make economic decisions you're going to need a unit of account. And if you're going to save for th...

Re: The Pirate Code

You may as well say individuals don't have equal rights because the one who acquires a burrito has the right to consume it, while the one who doesn't acquire a burrito doesn't. The point is everyone has the right to acquire a burrito, they just don't get to enjoy the benefits of that right until the...

Re: The Pirate Code

There's no contradiction here. Any pirate may acquire a ship and call themselves a captain. That right exists for all pirates. Owning a ship provides the opportunity to employ a crew, and to expel trespassers, but doesn't grant the right to crimp a crew into service, which no pirate possesses. Every...

Re: Childish?

If hypnotism exists, rival wills exist, specifically the will of the hypnotist, and the will of the subject. Hypnotism is the science and art of causing a subject's will to conform with the hypnotist's will. Which means it presupposes the subject has a will of their own. If the subject has a will of...

Re: Quantum Computing

Money isn't required for happiness now. Plenty of destitute people are happy. Plenty of happiness inducing activities are free... maybe I don't understand the question.

Re: intellectual property

Seems to be intellectual property is theft. If you want exclusive ownership of your ideas, don't put them in public. Otherwise you're colonizing my mind and telling me I can't use the parts that store my memory of your ideas.

Re: The Pirate Code

It seems to me everyone has the right to expel someone from their own property. A homeowner may expel you from their home, even though you may not expel them, but this doesn't constitute a disparity of rights. It's about context. It's certainly a higher risk scenario where expulsion means floating i...

Re: Every kid knows...

I certainly thought about money when I was a kid. I had the advantage of living in a variety of foreign countries as a child, and watching my parents trying to spend all their paper on something that would still be valuable in the next country. That was a eye opening observation. Paper is apparently...
