Socialism is an economic system, one that violates the laws of economics.
And what might those "laws of economics" be?...

Re: Evolution and Mankind's Destiny

First let me commend Sertorio for bringing up this thought provoking philosophical topic. Clearly evolution in the biological sense is a process the rewards short generation species. However if one includes artificial evolution and technological integration it is conceivable that the process of evo...

Re: what is the use?

This discussion is pointless! Even if the case for the further evolution of our human species as promoted by Sertorio is valid, evolution normally takes place so slowly that none of us will be around to see it happen. We don't have to see it happen, we just need to make sure it happens, for the ben...

Any position against human longevity is quite literally against life itself and in favour of death. To all such, I say "you first".
eternal life = no evolution = decadence = death

very long life = almost no evolution = decadence = death

Re: Evolution and Mankind's Destiny

Contrarily to the general belief, evolution does not come about mainly through spontaneous mutations, as Darwin seemed to think. The main instrument of evolution is lateral transfer of genes, in other words, the acquisition by humans of genes from other species, by the action of virus. This is some...

Evolution and Mankind's Destiny

Evolution and Mankind’s destiny It seems increasingly likely that human life may soon be extended to well over 100 years and maybe even 200 years. Genetic engineering and the growth of replacement organs from staminal cells would be the major instruments towards that goal. An idea which seems to ex...

Re: Life Under Kim Jong Un

North Korea has been ruled by successive members of the same (Kim) family since its very inception in the late 1940's. It has never had a ruler whose surname is not Kim. Hereditary rule is something that I always associate with MONARCHY - not with socialism. Funny I always thought that socialism wa...

Re: Can the US win a war against Russia?

Will America Survive Washington? by Paul Craig Roberts (...) I am not being facetious when I tell you “don’t expect to live much longer.” We are ruled by mindless, insane, psychopaths who believe that the US is invulnerable. These dumbshits are likely to get us all blown off the face of the earth. ...
