Toronto hosts the G20, G8, G# group of G’s.

June 15, 2010


Surely these leaders could meet over video chat whenever necessary, so lets ignore the obvious here and dispel any notion that these 20 people need to physically meet. This is a display, not a meeting, and they’re looking for a big negative reaction. They know there will be aggressive protesting, you would only hold such an event in the core of a major city if you were looking for trouble. (more…)

You Can’t Vote With Your Wallet

April 3, 2010

I don’t want to vote with my wallet, I want to vote with my damn vote. Is that too much to ask in a democracy? I would like to see some big changes, can i vote for that somewhere? For me to be an actual member of this democratic tribe I need to have some sort of state legitimized ‘say’ on how we proceed. With partisan politics and government thoroughly infested with corporate influence, my opinion is completely un-registrable within the governing of this group- I am not a voting member. (more…)

Regulated Market Equilibrium

October 5, 2009

Business is guided by regulations. There is no ‘free market’, there never will be. We will always need regulation- even in anarchy we’re restricted physically. There is always an obligation to some sort of rule. So when a person is pushing for a ‘free market’ they’re really just looking for less regulations. (more…)

Privatizing Currency

July 18, 2009


For most of my life i just assumed, as I’m sure most people do, that the money for a country is owned and printed by the government. Remember high school history class. The German government started recklessly printing cash after the war. Each individual bill became worth less, but the government was able to pay some expenses. A hyper inflation that devalued the currency so much people started trading money by the wheelbarrow. (more…)

Fear of a Red Planet, the Fake Global Recession.

June 17, 2009

There is no such thing as a “global recession”. A recession occurs when a country is having a tough time for some reason. They are loosing out to other countries in the world and have to deal with less. You know, people stopped liking our bananas for a while or something and our jerk neighbour who produces mangoes is flourishing. (more…)

Remi On Liberty

June 1, 2009

Should all people just be able to do whatever they like or should we all be following some set of rules? Without rules we can’t have any real ownership and we can’t enforce that people don’t hurt each other. But rules are rules; as soon as we make any we are taking away liberty. Real freedom is thereby only possible if people are perfectly suited to living amongst one another law free. (more…)

How to win at Globalization

May 25, 2009


The old conservative principle was to help business to better the national economy. Sure they’re a dirty oil company, but their OUR dirty oil company. Cut corporate taxes to support them, subsidies to encourage growth, ease regulations, which in turn benefits us all- like giving the ball to your fastest player. (more…)

All Good Authorities Are Goin’ Totalitarian

May 14, 2009


I’ve been getting into Twitter lately. Some real stupid comments on there, one guy made the claim that socialism plus time equals totalitarianism. . . .First of all, the two are incompatible; one can only exist at the exhaustion of the fundamentals of the other. Secondly, shit, name me a type of government that isn’t going to lead to totalitarianism with time. Capitalism’s certainly gone that route. If you have a boss, you are well aware that democracy doesn’t really happen in our day to day (more…)

Value

April 24, 2009


Does the value of a thing determine its price? Valuable things do often carry a high price. Does the price of a thing determine the value? Expensive things are often quite valuable. Are the value and price essentially the same thing? Does the bear shit in the woods? If the dog hadn’t stopped to piss he would have caught the rabbit. (more…)
