  1. It really is quite simple. True honest socialism requires a threat of violence, true honest capitalism does not. ?
  2. Yes, it is quite simple.....'nice' legal people with threats.
  3. Yes....at the point of a gun if needs be. Threats of violence by one group of people on another group is a mark of socialism. All tax demanding governments must be, of necessity, be socialist. ........'nice' people with threats.....hmmmm ?
  4. Agreed, but TPTB regard savers as the antichrist.
  5. Yes, there is a magic money tree....why shouldn't it's fruit be dished out to all and sundry or are the corporates more 'deserving' No......UBI is the perfect mad solution to a mad system......
  6. Yes, but most adults would be horrified money can be created from nothing.......that the money tree really DOES exist, to benefit issuers most and poorest the least...... mad (bad?).....but that's just way it is. ? What's the uk debt per person with and without public sector liabilities?.... mind boggling numbers?
  7. Thanks for posting. Very interesting. Am now thinking UBI may be the best mad solution for a mad system.....kind of anti Cantillon effect (where those *furthest* from the issuers of thin air credit are first in line to receive it) But there will have to be a real ruthless clampdown on immigration (?)....imagine when word get round, the west is giving out free money... .....also, minimum wage should be abolished if UBI were to be introduced.......IMAHO.
  8. No no at that time I believed she was what was needed to deal with excess union power....... remember the quote "socialism is what you get when you run out of other people's money" ?? Was she lying here?...... did she know the 'other people's money ' could be thin air credit to be repaid (coerced) from future generations? I agree she was the closest thing to capitalism we had...... but when all is said and done, if there's coercion to repay thin air credit, it is not (can not be) capitalism. ?
  9. Yes but Thatch was quite happy to interfere with natural price discovery....she was happy to create thin air credit to give to a select few.....? ......no, not too sure anyone here has experienced capitalism...... if capitalism is or should be(?), simply, the voluntary exchange of goods & services free from any coercion. .......if there's coercion....it's socialism. ?
  10. I know I shouldn't......... ........DiggerUK.....how would you deal with with anyone who mentioned the term the valuation bitcoin / oz gold?.......which, in your interpretation of the rules, is obviously, off topic?
  11. Yes, but maybe not this time ........ something to do with inflation linked gilts.......? https://twnews.co.uk/uk-news/uk-can-t-rely-on-inflation-to-tackle-the-ps2trillion-debt-pile-over-decades ".........There has been a lot of somewhat idle chat about the prospect of inflating our debt away, that we don't have to worry about elevated levels of debt because we can pull the same trick as in the 1950s and 60s of using inflation to erode the real value of our debt,' he said. 'That is not going to work. We have lost one tool we have used in the past.'....?"
  12. .......but....but......we can inflate away the debt ....can't we?......says in the vid we might not be able to!......would I get into trouble again if I were to suggest they could, in the good old days, manipulate away the debt?
  13. So, to make a perfectly reasonable observation about gold value in terms of say btc per oz would risk a banning??..... it's clearly off topic? A moderator's input would be really helpful here.
  14. No point engaging further.......but rest assured this thread will never be "the best ever" ....which is a shame...
  15. But for goodness sake, discussions do (must?) branch off in interesting, or not, directions?? Why do things happen?....Why compare differences between assets?......how to measure the value of those different assets....... Can those values be corrupted somehow....... are these thing possible??....... .......... and some want to stop this discussion because it fails to adhere to some direct A to B path???.......... .........utter utter madness.
  16. I know I really should not waste both our time........ but.....in the first instance, would you agree the price of money ....aka interest rates have been manipulated? I'm guessing you'll say not.....might be wrong though....
  17. But what will / might cause them to lose this fight?......what exactly are they selling when short?........gold? .......or just paper claims of gold ownership??...... why can't they just 'print' more and more paper claims......without limit? ....... so many questions.. so much to learn...... apologies
  18. Also, teachers could ask (educate?) the kids if they think they should be forced to pay under a threat of violence for non compliance.
  19. Just for a laugh I did ask our local MP if she thought it would be a good idea that children should be educated that they will be liable for the debt incurred by previous governments......they won't be able to save for their own pension, whilst paying their teachers pensions...... ?
  20. How can there ever be a true honest free market, if you do not have the fundamental right to refuse the offer of contract? We have never known capitalism...... perhaps we could give it a try after the inevitable collapse occurs.......?
  21. Surely all that's needed is a little bit more stimulus......it's worked before..... ...... oh wait.....
  22. You'd probably find those people would have been happy to pay for those services voluntarily......perhaps?......may be possible.
  23. Yes, I know, but how would...or should.... they be dealt with?....practically......as a capitalist I would like to know......I certainly wouldn't advocate violence to attack.....but think it reasonable that people have the right to defend themselves against attack......I think this may go to the heart of the difference between true socialism & true capitalism?......maybe.
