    Do you understand where the US high standard of living comes from?

    It doesn't come from your high productivity... Actually, you produce far less goods and services for the standard of living you are currently enjoying...

    Your nice standard of living comes from the status of the dollar. You can print as many dollars as you want, and they have value because most of the world trade and of course, OIL, has to be done in US dollars...

    And if someone doesn't want to receive dollars for their goods, oh well, you have some nice bombs to show them, like you did with Sadam, Gaddafi and other folks (oh, i forgot, it was about "democracy")...

    So, in fact, your high standard of living for the last decades is based on your weapons, and your threats to use them on any country that doesn't comply... Any wonder why the whole world hates your guts?

    Capitalism is wrong, it is based on the fallacy that perpetual expansion is possible... It is not. And sooner or later it will collapse globaly, no matter how many tricks the elite does...

    And you dear sir, need to have yoyr brain scrubbed ... by hanging on bitcointalk.org for 30-60 minutes daily. You will become a Ron Paul on steroids in no time! (or was it Ru Paul?) And you will reinvent free markets all over again. Show those bloody fools at wall street .... butcoin is God!

    Hi smitty3268,
    I'm currently translating this 74 page document

    http://cromalternativemoney.org/inde...n-freeman.html

    into English and Italian language (almost done). It's not easy at all.
    I would be grateful if you could explain me your ideas a little bit better.

    I cannot comprehend... how is possible... if from the very beginning ALL political systems are based on one same thing - the state - and state is a worst dictator by itself, how can democracy, communism, capitalism and fascism for example be different from one another? The same question is valid also for the different economic systems, cause as far as I know, these ar the facts (second half of red and green text):

    As of now, no country was ever communist driven as it's only possible with robotic technology. As long as even one human has to work to keep the society alive, communism isn't possible. Robotics solve that problem because once they're all set up, you don't need humans anymore for resource harvesting/producing goods.
    1) So what will human do? Unemployed people are paid here, for a long time. To do nothing. Mostly, they do not seem happy.
    2) If I have only my arms to produce goods for improving my life, I'll use my arms. If I have a robot and my arms to produce good for improving my life, I'll use the robot and my arms. There is no magical level where humanity has "enough" (unless it's when needs are fulfilled, and experience shows that most people do not stop there when they reach that) that it can stop using available capital without making any difference. There can be a point though where most of human workforce becomes uncompetitive (compared to robotic workforce), and at that point, because of 1, all these people feeling useless may not feel like living the utopia you paint.

    OMG, you so hit the nail on the head - I agree, capitalism is done, finished, finito, kaput! I too give it only until the second coming of Jesus Christ.... after that, it's anyone's guess.

    The point about petrodollar warfare could be correct but it has nothing to do with capitalism. I'm not sure how you mix those two.

    Thank you, Prescience500.
    i think it's funny that there are people that think that an institution whose independence can be revoken by the state are completely independent from the state. It is clearly nonsense. (Yes, i am refering to the FED)
    When the most important thing in the free market (Gold,money) is controlled by the state, it is clearly not a free market ..

    But i mean it, thank you. I often try to explain it to people, but they are all brainwashed by the public schools, which are controlled by the state, at least here in Germany. Sadly, not many here learned out of socialism and national SOCIALISM.

    People are influenced since their childhood and i like to quote Mike Baxter here: "These kids are into big government. No surprise. Teenagers are used to spending other people's money."

    For all the adblock junkies here, i have an extra firefox profile for sites like phoronix WITHOUT adblock/noscript, because i think, they do something for me for free and it is an easy way for me by clicking some adds to give something back. So please, disable your adblock for phoronix or get a premium account.


    Sorry for my bad english and sorry that my first post is kinda offtopic.

    Would be ok, as long as:
    1- It's really limited to the empty page. So, no wasted screen estate, no disgusting youtube style popup ads, etc.
    2- Doesn't interrupt your experience. i.e. doesn't block you from continuing to use Firefox until you close the ad, or until the ad is loaded.
    3- It has no effect on performance (startup time, new tab time, etc).
    4- It doesn't start spying on you in order to give you better ads.
