RealBitcoin, why would a society allow a doctor to continue practicing, when there's a robot that does it 10 times faster, 10 times more efficiently, and 10 times safer; indeed, it would be malpractice. The goal is to automate as much as possible, to free up human potential.


It would be very dangerous to absolutely replace everything with robots, because then practiaclly the value of humans would be 0.

And the elite will then wipe us out, terminator style, with AI warrior robots.


You have to leave value to humans too, otherwise there will be no point of humanity and robots will replace the life on earth. We would go extinct in 10 years.

You can't even theoretically replace everything with robots, because, ultimately, it is a human against another human affair that gives value (or lack thereof) to one's life. It is pretty much the same as with private property, it is yours only as long as others consider it yours...

My property is my property, lol

Yeah, but the respect for property must sooner or later yield to profit, something that the likes of Stefan Molyneux have yet to realize, and which "mission impossible 2" is a prime example of.

Does it? What if I just buy a farmland and start planting plants there.

If I dont care about the value of the land, it can go down for that matter, but I make money from the plants, and even if i dont break even, it will make that my profession.


I dont think any farmer cares about the value of his land, and only cares about the productivity of it, and to make many crops to sell them.


Land speculators? That is a totally different category. In a real capitalist society, there will be hardly any speculators. Those belong in this corporate world.

RealBitcoin, in "mission impossible 2", a company unleashes a deadly virus on the populace - thereby disrespecting property - when in possession of the cure, in order to reap huge profits. There simply doesn't exist a mechanism in free-market capitalism that would prevent something like this from eventually occurring. Hence, property yields to profit.

That event would never happen.

And even if it would, people will just storm their building and steal the cure if they really dont give it up.


If there is a global pandemic and you posess the cure for it, you will sell it,  even if you are a psychopath, because it can gain you billions of dollars.

But what is the alternative? If you have this global communist system setup, how do you know that the director of the pandemic research facility (yes you will have hierarchy even in RBE) wont just run away with the cure and keep it for himself and then sell it on the black market?

What prevents that? At least in capitalism you have a formal market where you can drop your ideas and inventions for sale.

If you banish money, you will have only black markets and violence. Even the soviet union had a huge black market system, people need capitalism ,you cannot comprehend it that it's a basic trait of humans to acquire capital and resources.

The thing is that in a real free market, there wont be just 1 person inventing the cure, but many separate people, not even knowing of eachother.

And they would compete about who can release the vaccine faster to earn more money. The person that invents it first, will quickly start to sell it before the other people invent it, to ensure that he profits the most. And when the other start to sell it, the price of it will drastically drop. So the vaccine will be on the market ASAP. Greed is a 2 edged sword, and in this case, greed will save many people's lives, because as greedy is the inventor, as fast the cure will start to save lives. So if 1 out of the 100 inventors withholds the cure, he will just lose money, as the other 99 people did the right thing, and will be rewarded with big bucks.

If you have 1 point of failure, a communist research department, you can just have 1 evil person withholding the cure because he believes the "people" are not ideologically pure enough to receive it, or some other disturbed ideological delusion, and will let people die.

Doesnt matter what system you create, if you centralize power, you wont create a paradise, but rather a hell on earth.

A free market is just there to balance power, nothing more, nothing less.

That is nonsense, the separation of powers is the whole point of decentralization. Otherwise you just use a centralized system.

I can put all bitcoin addresses and balances in an excel file, and it would cost me 0$ to maintain it.

The factor is that you cannot trust a centralized system, at all. That is why we have the mining system.

If they dont know about eachother , i highly doubt  they would conspire against people.

I mean just look at the hardware companies, you got tons of them, if what you say were true, you would not have today a PC on which to speak this nonsese.

Someone not interested in profit, is certainly not interested in losses.

It costs billions of $ to develop any medicine, why would he spend so much money ,and then sit on the cure just for the fun of it? Thats nonsense my friend.

Well its certainly very vulnerable by being centralized, 1 body only needs to die once.

It it were decentralized, then you would not die from 1 point of failure : heart attack, stroke, bullet in a brain, etc..

Humans would be more durable then.

RealBitcoin, you really need to be stating more clearly the "nonsense" and why, and not just write blanket statements.

If your drug is second to market, and both parties are equally invested, you wouldn't try to compete, but simply join them in a monopoly or cartel, keeping the price high - which is why there are laws against such behavior.

Unfortunately, there's centralization everywhere, because it's more efficient. For instance, take a company with a central management and departments who all communicate and share research with one another, it would be highly inefficient to have them perform the same task or compete internally - more like academia where research is published; that's an RBE.

Monopoly and oligopoly only form if there is a pressure to centralization on the market. You will never see a lollipop market become centralized in a free society, because there will be so many people doing it that it will become impossible.

The same will happen with any other market, if you introduce gradually introduce competition. But if you keep out competition with the iron fist of the state, and those laws, then it wil certainly become monopolic.

Your example of that company is not a free market, in a free market there would be no company with that many departments.

RealBitcoin, you seem to be including a lot of supposition of what constitutes a free market, when I already told you its definition which you agreed with: " an economic market or system in which prices are based on competition among private businesses and not controlled by a government ", my emphasis - there being nothing in there about people not working together toward a common goal, also known as a company.

If you really wanted to convince us, you'd be making the case that there isn't a free market, on U.S. soil, for example, according to that definition, but also prove that tax money could have been better spent in the free market and was not subject to competition for government projects, in the free market, and also prove that the government is indeed threatening/forcing all people on U.S. soil to pay income tax - good luck!

RealBitcoin, again, nothing you just stated has anything to do with Merriam-Webster's "free market", since people are free to not use government fiat money, asses stock values by their method of choice, and aren't forced to buy them, all free market behavior.
Your job is to show the coercion, and that it is sufficiently large to give a negative impact than would a completely unregulated market.

No they are not. Taxes must be paid in legal tender fiat. And society forces you to shop with fat as well. ["forces"?? What are you smoking, RB? As part of a free market, private businesses have the right to barter anything for its products and services, even BitCoin, and there's no law that says otherwise.]

It's not that it's not feasable to shop with gold coins, it is actually impossible if not illegal. ["illegal"?? How about you show a law in support?]

Truth hurts, doesn't it, RB, that there indeed is a free market, and society still goes to sht!

Can you give an example of what you are looking for?

I`m curious how the RBE system will handle decision making. As in how will governing decisions be made, in order to keep the system transparent and decentralized.


If you cant answer that, or there is no feasable and applicable way to do that, then my gut feeling will become true, and this RBE will quickly turn into a Stalinist global totalitarian government.


If you can't implement a feasable way for transparent decision making, and a participatory voting system where you involve the average person into the economy and politics, then the system will quickly become totalitarian and the TPTB will assume control, and the system will become very ugly, very soon.
My definition of "feasible" is based on experimental psychology. Organisms behave according to stimuli, pleasure, needs, etc. Your "Stalinist" pejorative belies your education and/or bias. The problem is they tried to make Marxist ideas into a political system. Higher organisms don't become "political" until they respond to "others" outside their immediate family/group. RBE seeks to allow people to treat everyone like their own family/tribe. The principles have been studied and tested by science and have shown to have predictable results. Many clinicians and organizations use these techniques and it's simply a matter of scale.

There is nothing to enforce. The alternative of not becoming an RBE is extinction as a species. The eventual culling of the population will demand it.

No,you get me wrong, I`m talking about everyday applicable decisions in a society? How are they decided , who decides them, and how are they enforced?


I saw the RBE model, and video, they talk about a huge global network of resource trading. It seems pretty complicated, and it needs high levels of organization, presumably a global state.

And when you are dealing with a global state, presumably heavily leftist, you can quickly fall into Stalinist ideology and turn this dream ideology into a nightmare with gulags and then rest of them.
