According to the documentaries: "Money as Debt" and "Zeitgeist Addendum" on this website: http://www.sons-of-liberty.net/ In our debt based monetary system the debt can never be paid off as the total debt in U.S. dollars is necessarily always greater than the total number of U.S. dollars in circulat...

There's one thing I still don't get about VASIMIR which that presentation left me even more confused about. Non- resistive plasmas are eternally stuck to the fieldlines they are on, the plasmas emitted from VASIMIR into space will be low density and so this statement should apply. Ampere's law clear...

MSimon , you are a liar, and I have no respect for you since you distorted Jones' statements and lied about what he actually said. I don't respect outright liars. The very link you posted to support your claim that " Arctic ice is not declining. Glad we have established that " discusses sea ice . T...

I've been thinking about the issue of taxation aswell. In order to have law you need an authority to enforce it. This authority needs funding. There can only be one law in each country, therefore within a country the normal rules of business competition cannot be applied. Imagine a world without a s...

I quite like AGW discussions, I found lots of links on them to sides that are both for and against which on the whole I found informative. Pehaps a Polywell forum strictly speaking isn't the most appropriate place, but I imagine forums dedicated to AGW are completely flooded, with Polywell the numbe...

Trades only maximize utility when the self-interested parties involved do so of their own volition and have access to all information that is relevant to the pros and cons of the trade. If you pay me 5 pounds for the priviledge of smashing my car but tell me you'll shoot me if I don't let you, no ne...

We don't need slavery, not since the industrial revolution atleast if all cheap labour dissappeared tomorrow you would see a major push for improvements in robotics maybe one or two years of mild recession (a small price to pay for liberating the world) and then business as usual. Anyhow a lot of wh...

You can't "agree with much of it": you either agree with all of it or none of it. To say otherwise indicates you did not understand, because in the end he had but one thing to say. Everything else was explanation for that one thing. I'm not sure I agree, civilisation was build on disagreements, for...

Give one token child whose work wasn't all that bad and out of work an interview and bobs your uncle all child labour is O.K.! The idea of applying the laws of supply and d...

The reality is that todays scientists are so specialized, that they often don't understand new concepts outside their area in anycase.

And I think our Brit friends would say the same about their island.
You mean by funding mosques and then using that as an in to ensure that the Islam taught there is according to Saudi ideology?

BTW I'm as sure as sure can be - that all the Islamic countries have been told: use a nuke anywhere in the world against any one and (.... name your city) gets it. Let the jihadis do it for you and we will accept no denials. So you had better keep an eye on them. That's fair enough, a small bunch o...

You want to break terrorists by fueling them? Get 'em all twitchy and they are easier to find. So let me see if I get this. They are already angry with us. And that would make them really, really, angry. Good. There are plenty of law-biding citizens who are muslims who just grumble alot, who would ...

A bit like saying Hiroshima & Nagasaki or Berlin ought to have been nuked on Day 1. It would have shortened the war considerably. And if you consider that we have been at war with the jihadis since 1776, maybe they are over due. May you just kill everyone in the entire world who isn't American, tha...
