Scientists however, are debating whether or not the other 22 pairs are communists because they think they should share in the overall gene pool.

He was being sarcastically hyperbolic. Nothing more needs to be said here. No more dumb questions or comments, please.

@guy39

Are you an Anarchist? More specifically, are you a Revolutionary Anarchist? That is, are you of the persuasion that unless the next shift in our society is anything other than the dismantling of a Centralized State structure, than it is inherently unjust?

I am asking you this since that is the only possible way the argument you made, excerpted above, would be logically consistent and hold merit. Are you aware of that? If so, it would seem useful that you elaborate on that point initially. Since you did not, I am currently under the impression that fail to recognize why this must be the case--implying you are not cognizant of how our current system functions.

Please explain what you meant by this post in relation to our current system, "standard" Social Democratic societies, and Totalitarian societies.

Imaginethat was accurately pointing out the rather obvious, elementary argument/observation I was making that managed to be lost on you and justoneman. I would encourage you to go back and re-read the brief exchange that occurred, as it may make more sense this time around..
Thanks from imaginethat

There is utility in Imaginethat's remark, as catering to this sort of "dumbing down" the conversation is derailing the main point of the thread. Thus, it should be challenged/set straight (i.e. it was not in fact an Ad Hominen, but rather a genuine question based on the circumstances--it's not his/her fault if another person feels their intelligence has been insulted/attacked due to one's lack of comprehension on a particularly undemanding matter)

You haven't so much as addressed one point nor made a single argument..
Yes I am opposed to the idea that there are 63+ genders, Neo-Feminism, cis-gender privilege, Affirmative Action, ect. ect. ....


Are you?

What is a Social Democratic society? I believe it is the same as Democratic Socialism only it uses social justice to implement or help implement the ideology. With that being said I believe in many of the tenets of libertarian-ism and I understand what Anarchism is an is not. Although not enough can be said about Egalitarianism, which most people fail to grasp but should be discussed more in length. So, what you are suggesting is using either government or social justice to implement a economical order. The only way your economical order is implemented is by stealing other peoples possessions. The easiest way to describe Democratic Socialism is to say that we are going to make all businesses into employee owned businesses. To do that you must steal the business from the owners and the stock holders. That means you shit all over people's 401k and IRA's and even the good ole union pensions. In order to go and steal other people's property in such a mass way it would require people with guns to come and do it. Its not anarchism, its being pragmatic.

In my experience there is only two kinds of people who suggest such nonsense as you. Those who are born of and possess wealth and have no need of financial resources. They live in a euphoric bubble that believes they are above the fray of implementing thievery among the people. The other kind of person is the person who is on the polar opposite of that. They are usually duped by the rich person telling them the other rich person, who is actually rich because they invest in or own businesses that create employment, and its not fair they have that and you do not. So its pure jealousy that fuels such movements as occupy wall street. I hate to sound boorish, but you are in my opinion, pushing Democrat Socialism but calling it a different name, such as Social Democracy, which is nothing but using Social Justice as a prime mover to institute Socialism a long with government. I believe I understand perfectly
Thanks from justoneman
