It's an internet thing - on podcasts, when someone says something legally questionable - someone chimes in "you mean in Minecraft, right?"

How dare you assume I'm a book!

<3 i say just get the poster and see what they say - if they don't like it, try to explain, if they won't listen, put it somewhere in the garage or workshop - if that's not okay, roll it up and throw it out, it's not that pricey and it helps an (apparently) really intelligent and cool, talented person (definitely not me ;))

But I'm poor so it's easy for me to say "buy shit".

1984 vs. Blade Runner vs. Star Trek by EndlessSunflowers in WayOfTheBern

This happend in the ST universe.. There was the war with Khan, the genetic enhanced humans (TOS, TOS movie, Enterprise and the shitty reboot movie deal with this). There was a Global nuclear war and after that First contact with the Vulcans was made

Exactly my point! This kind of shift in society can only be seen through great suffering. The ends do not justify the means however and such a thing is to be avoided - especially since we know no intelligent people are waiting in the wings to develop what we see in this picture - rather, they intend something else.

Don't get me wrong, it's a fine idea - but it's not for us and if we set it as an end-goal there's only two things that can happen: failure or success - neither of which is desirable (as success requires the reset button on the collective human psyche and failure is... well failure.).

We as the people alive now need to focus on the bad shit and prevent it from happening. I'm not down with genetic war with Kahn and shit just so we can get to fly around in space gobbunism.

Obviously real estate on Earth is a limited resource. If you wanted to live on earth, you would need somewhere to live. But without money, and no pay (they all serve in starfleet to 'better themselves') this presumably must be allocated to you. How do you get a bigger house? Choose where to live? And how about if a house has been in your family for decades? Will the government take it away from you and give it to someone else? How are these limited resources allocated without money?

How can you know that anything you possess won't be taken away by the sinister Federation government in the name of 'the greater good'? Wouldn't this be an invitation for corruption since only political forces can allocate resources rather than a free market?

What do you guys think? Would you be happy giving up all your possessions - including those of sentimental value - for some vague notion of self-betterment?

In any case, although millions of people have strong opinions on "The Communist Manifesto", very few of them have ever had the misfortune of actually reading this irrational gibberish. I am one of the unfortunate few who has read it (click here for the gory details), and it is definitely the blueprint (albeit with some modifications) for the Federation's socio-economic structure. If we disregard some of Karl Marx's dated agricultural ideas, the abridged version of the basic tenets of marxism are as follows:

Abolition of property rights. Government intervention in the buying and selling of goods increases by an order of magnitude. Investments are verboten. The concept of private property is virtually destroyed. Neo-marxists are quick to point out that Marx only wanted to eliminate "exploitative" capitalist property, rather than the personal property of the "artisan and craftsman". However, Marx never explained how to preserve one while eliminating the other. For example, at what point do Grandma's savings become exploitative capitalist investments? How do you criminalize one without criminalizing the other?. The result of his half-baked idea is a proposal which is impossible to implement, so real communist states have historically abolished all forms of private property (thus creating a vacuum which black marketeers sprang up to fill).

The fact that Reddit users must argue for hours about whether money even exists or whether or not people can keep and bare arms attests to the poorly constructed psuedo-space-gommunism that some how goes

1) Sentient Robots being property, no money, barely any land ownership and only a single example of private gun ownership (without being called a "terrorist" ie: the Maquis Insurgency)(almost 50 years after the show began)

2) Work for self-betterment and apparently, no pay

3) ?

4) Space utopia/profit.

It's just not a good example, it fails to account for current human nature.

Yes it's possible - but quite literally not unless the world becomes severely depopulated and some kind of... one world government were to take control and "re-educate" the survivors into a new way of being human.

Doesn't sound like utopia to me, in fact it sounds like something I've heard joked about before:

How to build a skyscraper out of wood (Vigte: I was skeptical, but I read through and they seem to have thought it through quite well... I'm impressed.) by Vigte in technology

The first thing I did when I read the title was "control+F: fire".

More importantly, the wooden beams created with modern processes are so big and solid that it actually takes enormously high temperatures to set them on fire — below those temperatures, the surface of the beam simply chars, while the beam itself maintains its structural integrity. "Steel is actually less fire resistant in its pure form," Snapp said. "When steel hits a certain temperature it starts melting, the connections break."

Nice.... nice... yes, now that I use my brain for 2 seconds this makes sense...

The substantially low amount of concrete used impressed me greatly too, (concrete is created by turning CaO3 into CaO (I BELIEVE but I just learned that yesterday, so, it's still finding it's place in my brain-harddrive), producing CO2 as a by product (this I am sure of), it is one of the most directly harmful processes we use),

Obviously, there are aspects of construction that will emit CO2 no matter what material you use. But steel and concrete also have carbon emissions intrinsic to that material: Sixty percent of concrete's emissions, for instance, come from the chemical reaction to make the concrete. Replacing a lot of steel and concrete construction with wood could save us a lot of CO2 output.

Cross Post: Philosophy Can Make the Previously Unthinkable Thinkable by The_In-Betweener in ConspiracyPhilosophy

[–]Vigte 1 insightful - 1 funny1 insightful - 0 funny2 insightful - 1 funny -  (0 children)

Ethicists, at least within their academic work, are encouraged to be skeptical of intuition and the naturalistic fallacy (the idea that values can be derived simply from facts). Philosophers are also familiar with tools such as thought experiments: hypothetical and contrived descriptions of events that can be useful for clarifying particular intuitions or the implications of a philosophical claim. These two factors make it unsurprising that philosophers often publicly adopt positions that are unintuitive and outside mainstream thought, and that they might not personally endorse.

The philosopher is the pharmaceutical for pathological complacency, which is why you shall find it much maligned and ridiculed as valueless or ineffectual by those viruses that inhabit the body politic.
