Yep because people choose to believe that it is political it then becomes political.

BTW it would all be solved if people simple stopped fucking for about a decade.

Once there are no babies people would start to become valuable as a limited resource much like BTC is non inflationary.

Just think as a human the single best action you can do is have any kind of sex, but intercourse.  Solves many of  the worlds problems. Actually gives power to the people not the politicians or big business.

Can you imagine the world population shrinking to a sustainable size and every simply having a lot of fun sex?

The chances of that are the chances of me picking a key at random and finding a 10 btc address.

YES!!! ANAL FOR ALL!!!  Grin  Grin #nohomo Cool

 
Roll Eyes Seriously:
Sex is not that simple. There are reasons why most humans prefer intercourse. Reasons almost beyond control. Neurotransmitters, hormones, endorphines...
You can't just "control" that. Life does not become simple just by looking at it in a simple way. Likewise, things don't become political because people choose to believe so.
Everything human is awfully complex. If you don't respect that, you probably never get real problems solved real well. Maybe by accident, but on the rarest of occasions, if we look at our history.

Now for the important part:
Our population never was meant to shrink. In fact, there is no "overgrow" of humans, but the sick politic and economic systems that don't work for an expanding population. These systems were made to work for a few and enslave the rest. Global food production would cover 9 billion people's needs twice. Still, look how many people are starving. A difference between Africa and America, as an example, is that people are comparably well educated, so they must be tricked into believing to be "free" (among other helpful beliefs).
The inhere sickness of servicing the few, instead of servicing the many, is the real problem of the world's politics.
And see, they already tricked you by believing that the population growth is to blame. Also, the systems are made in ways that you can't really change. You can just replace them. And that might be as a long way as it came to be like it is today. Thousands of years. And it depends on educating and training people to handle primitive motivations like greed, fear, hate from the start of life until they have grown up. Then we might eventually be able to make it work for all of us, not just a few.

See, bitcoin is solving systemic problems at the root. That's why it will win the fight, the fight that was started by the few.
This is a key example how to transfer power from the few to the many. As long as the many manage to stop fighting each other, the few will lose.
The few are well aware of that, so they manipulate the many into feeling greed, hate, fear (...) about each other.
the many can't simply take over power by trying to become like the few.

I hope you got my point, i'm feeling really bad at expressing things today  Grin
Edited the post because of that, too.


Over population is not the problem. The problem is most.people dont understand the power they have over the elite world leaders. JUST stop feeding the system new people for a decade and world.leaders would lose control over people.  Managing thousands by making them fight for resources has been done for thousands of years. The single.greatest resource for world.leaders is an abundance of people.  Ten years of hand jobs, blow jobs,muff jobs , rim jobs would create a shortage of people for leaders.to manipulate. Leader would need to alter their methods of control. I am sure they would.

OK, let it put me this way then:

If you try to control a part of a complex system (aka. the problem) by making single, simple and widespread changes, you will most likely fail, if not introduce bigger problems than the ones you originally wanted to solve.

This is roughly the essence of complex system theory. In fact, our linear thinking (put action A to make state B become state C) puts us in a bad position to become successful in a complex system.

EDIT: Solution: replace the system with a better one. See bitcoin

On the Left is anybody who attempts arguments from ignorance and stupidity against me.


> Imperia dura tolle: quid virtus erit?

< Obici feris monstrisque virtutem putas?
> Virtutis est domare quae cuncti pavent.

< Tenebrae loquentem magna Tartareae premunt.
> Non est ad astra mollis e terris via.

< Quo patre genitus caelitum sperat domos?




As a student of words, I do not use words randomly:

degenerate < L. degener, ‘inferior to your ancestors, who would choose abortion if they could see you now; downfallen in (genetic) quality’, < de-, ‘away from’ + genus, ‘birth (in the sense of family), origin, class, species/race’, from the same root as gens, ‘tribe, clan, family’.

The source of my disgust should be readily apparent to anyone who has ever observed the tenacity with which all healthy female viviparous creatures struggle over asperities in a gravid state—or who has seen the grief borne by women who suffer spontaneous abortions (also known as miscarriages).  To propose as lighthearted comedy that everybody should just fuck, fuck, fuck and abort the results is definitionally degenerate.

Now, to avoid a red herring:  I am not arguing the abortion issue as it is misperceived in modern American politics.  Indeed, I think that abortion should be legal (perhaps even mandatory) for exactly the types of people who want it.

Just call that evolution in action, the culling of weakness and sickness:  Women who choose to abort their young are ipso facto unfit to have young.  It is one of those self-solving, or at least self-limiting problems—like suicide cults, which I also think should be legal—and like drugs, which should be legalized pronto!

combined with the exclusion of known drug users from all health insurance, welfare, and assistance with food and housing.  Drug abuse would quickly prove itself to be a strictly self-limiting problem.

Druggies, don’t whine.  I am supporting your freedom to kill yourselves!

Being not a Christian, of course I am not inclined to weep for the souls of the poor little babies who, if they ever could have attained consciousness, should be grateful never to have been born to such degenerate, manifestly unfit mothers as would kill them in the womb.



Do you suitably inform females of that attitude of yours before you do anything that has any nonzero probability of causing pregnancy?

Yes, and I make them sign a standard waiver as well. Out of curiosity, do you always refer to women as females? I heard they think that's, like, really hot.

The use of the word “female” is now politically incorrect?  I didn’t get the memo.

My insistence that females damn well have a right to know your attitude toward abortion, before you bring your male gametes anywhere near them, is interpreted by you as somehow derogatory or disrespectful to them?

It is a question of informed consent.

For my part, I have discovered empirically that my sincere willingness to take mature adult responsibility in the event of unplanned pregnancy is indeed “really hot”.  Women go wild for that!  It is as if after so much annoyance from boys who are just desperate to stick it in, they have discovered a man.

One who will not flake out, run away, or (cringe!) pressure her for an abortion, if the moment’s passion turns out to have permanent consequences.  Really hot.  Like, “please yes, let’s now take about a one-in-a-million risk of contraceptive failure, because I’m anyway secretly fantasizing about having your babies” level of hotness.

If you can’t cope with that, #gohomo.

Oh, and if you are not sufficiently mature even to raise these types of grown-up discussions, then you should not be having sex.



In re Communism

I have been calling Trump a Communist for about the past five years.  I tossed out that thing about the history of Antifa while I was working on a cartoon about Orange Dolt Kerensky (R) versus Senile Dementia Lenin (D).  (To be posted, after I finish the accompanying text.)

I identify things as they are.  If you are too asinine to understand, that is your problem.  I only debate my peers—although on occasion, Internet flotsam may provide an opportune rhetorical opening for something that I wanted to write anyway on grounds of, Imperia dura tolle...

Recently, I also almost used my standard metaphor of describing second-century Christian groups as Antifas.  It is basically what they were:  Proto-Communist agitators who, in their case, were renegades against the established order of Judaism.  And the Sermon on the Mount is a v0.1 SJW rant.  As I have previously remarked, Marx didn’t really invent much; he simply systematized a social pathology that has recurred at various times in history, and integrated it with the modern democratic Zeitgeist into an economically-minded worldview centred on the primacy of Capital.

And because I know political concepts from first principles, it was before I saw the below images floating around on the Internet that I wrote an analysis (not posted) of Cuties as Communist propaganda.  I wrote that based on what its defenders say about it, not what its detractors say (and I have not seen the film).



(Who is that angry-looking orange-haired man in the background?  I can’t quite see the details.  Well, I suppose it’s nothing.)

Either movie set designers—who, as professional storytellers, work semiotics as their jobs—have taken up the habit of painting arbitrary political symbols in the backgrounds of their scenes for no reason whatsoever—or I know Marxism when I see it.

It was at the time that I posted this, for anyone with a critical artistic eye:

Subject: [WO] Uglies
Something that V8s posted earlier incited an essay that went off into a tangent; it took on a life of its own, and...  I think that I will just leave this here for now.



USA

“We Can Do It!”
J. Howard Miller (1942–43)



USSR

“The Liberated Woman is Building Socialism”
Adolf Strakhov (1926)


A few hours after this:


My post history has plenty of observations about Communism going back to when I was at Newbie rank, but I need not reach that far.

So noted, just so that people realize that I have been quite consistent about this since long before I caught the ire of an apologist for Communism who apparently can’t stand to see things identified for what they are.

Right. There will be cattle in the V8s citadel, but also lots of veggies, even wheat if you must, and you can eat whichever, as long as, however much certain parties have tried to normalise veganism and carnivory in the past, you don't bang on and on about your preferences,.

But there will not be pedos, child rape, that stuff. At all. However much certain parties have tried to normalise it in the past.

There will be no age of consent, but everyone knows that 16 year old girls' prime inner drive is to get fucked, so their dads will have to rule.

51 out of 52 times a country’s debt-to-GDP ratio reached 130%, the country eventually defaulted.

US is now at 136%.

Canada's central bank has sold off 1,000+ tons of gold reserves over the past fifty years, buying mainly US dollars, while an ounce of gold has gone from $35 to $1900.

You'll be delighted & flattered to hear these clowns think bitcoiners are not financially literate!

Around $25b of capital needs to flow into Bitcoin to push it to $1T market cap, which will bring it into visibility as a major asset bucket.

Today $18.3b sits in USDT and USDC alone, that's even if we ignore new participants preparing for their entry.

all the national geographic documentaries about wildlife, all the books we read as kids about lions and tigers and gorillas - we always thought there is a vast and rich and enormous mammal fauna covering the entire planet.

truth is, the only thing covering the planet is us, on an exponential rate. mammal "wildlife" is a folklore, a fairy tale, a facade - an utopia from the past. welcome to the Anthropocene, get ready for a complete artificial Star Trek like environment. forests are no primeval forests but artificially planted timberland. nature is reduced to curated parks and golf course -like landscapes. we were part of nature when we gatherers and hunters. we have chosen to eat the fruit of knowledge and got kicked out of paradise. we've built our own nature. with back jack and hookers.
this train has left the station. nature is gone. the only question left to answer is how much nature we need to survive as a species. how much diversity of mammals or insects is needed for humankind to survive? maybe more than is left presently, maybe less - we will find out in the coming centuries.

this is not the usual "we are killing the planet, let's go back to gatherers and hunters to save nature" environmentalists stupidity (which unfortunately can serve as a nice source of future "eco-fascism" suppression of human rights) or the usual cultural pessimism tune of "we are going down". it is just a fact that we have to acknowledge - nature is gone, curated "nature" is the new reality.

also not suggesting that we should not try to treat animals more ethically or that we shouldn't try to preserve nature where it still exists. all this is important but we cannot escape "our" nature - which is to create our own environment globally.

Thought I'd share this, made me optimistic, like a toke from the hopium bong:

<snip>
Receding volatility and little price action may be frustrating for BTC traders, but the hardcore HODLers keep calm and continue hodling. The long-term Bitcoin's fundamentals still imply that the cryptocurrency has strong bullish potential; the only question is when it will realize it.
