Ooga-Booga! Come join the invisible friend club, let the childish awe of supernaturalism be a lifetime limitation. You may pick up your necklace of bananas at the door  Grin


It's time for the U.S. to throw Israel under the bus. The pure avarice of a colonial land grab by European colonists after WWII has nothing to do with religious tolerance or freedom, to the contrary, it mocks both by hiding behind them.

In your attempts to reject God, you have rejected Bastiat and all of your Western freedoms to boot.

because you have rejected knowledge,
I will also reject you,
that you shall be no priest to me:
seeing you have forgotten the law of your God,
I will also forget your children."

The US has the Bill of Rights.

The USA has a Bill of Rights due to the Enlightenment, and due to its Judeo-Christian heritage.

Stuff like the Bill of Rights was my whole point when I wrote this:  https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=53366.msg648981#msg648981

Here is a better proposal:

People should vote for policies, not politicians.

Votes should create a contractual obligation for politicians to deliver what has been voted on. If a politician fails to deliver, resignation is mandatory.

Each policy's success should be measured by an idependent "supreme court", according to criteria defined clearly before the voting process.

There should be a "vote deposit".

Votes should be weighed according to how much money each voter deposits for that particular policy voted upon. This deposit will only be returned to the voter after X years if the policy has been deemed successful. If the policy is deemed unsuccessful, the deposit will be used to compensate those who voted against it.

I have a better idea.

Let's have IQ tests, then only let people with IQ better than 120 vote.

Why should all the stupid people dominate politics and government?

After all intelligence among humans follows a gaussian distribution, why let the dummies vote and control the flow of society?

Wouldn't society be better run by the smart, not the wealthy?

If you knew anything about IQ tests and their history you'd scream "hell no" and spank whoever suggested such a bad idea.

In your attempts to reject God, you have rejected Bastiat and all of your Western freedoms to boot.

If I don't accept all of Bastiat's beliefs, then I must reject all of them?  False dichotomy.

Quote
"My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge:
because you have rejected knowledge,
I will also reject you,
that you shall be no priest to me:
seeing you have forgotten the law of your God,
I will also forget your children."
Hosea 4:6

I don't need to resort to mysticism in order to have a moral code.  Because of the universal preferences of humanity (typically referred to as human nature) and the universal reality within which humanity exists, one can glean universal truths (a moral code) that are compatible with said human nature and reality.  Those who can come to these truths through their own cognizance and reasoning, and not simply rely on the conclusions of others, have a foundation for the most solid, contradiction-free morality possible.

How has that Bill of Rights been working out?  An old piece of paper won't protect you from immoral people with power.
