Many statist-environmentalists want Monsanto to be stopped by government, even though it only exists because of the government.

Here are some news reports about the marches:

To revamp this thread.

How goes the business?  Do you have a website up? Have you obtained any investors yet? Have you opened up?

This video is a few months old, but still a really great example of the 'can do' attitude.

Hey everyone, I am back!

While browsing the news today, I found some really good examples of the entrepreneurial spirit in action. If you have recent examples of capitalism in action, please share.

Hey everyone, I am back.

In Bitcoin related news, it looks like its use in Germany is on the rise.

23  Questions And Challenges / Challenges To Anarcho-Capitalism / Re: Voluntaryism, Space, and Survival on: March 07, 2013, 12:00:09 AM

But to address the question, eventually our species is going to be extinct so what's the point of doing anything?

No, not necessarily.

The evolution of mankind will most likely be as follows:
-Mankind develops inner-star system travel (ie: Earth to Mars)
-Mankind develops 'localized' inter-star system travel (ie: Sol to Vega)
-Mankind develops inner-galactic travel (ie: Sol to Palomar 1)
-Mankind develops inter-galactic travel (ie: Milky Way to Andromeda)
-Mankind develops inter-dimensional/inter-universal travel

With the last step, mankind, as a species, will be immortal. If the 'Big Crunch' theory does prove to be correct, then mankind will simply travel to another universe or dimension.

Also, mankind will most likely reach the point of singularity long before the final step, and we will be able to fuse our consciousness with that of machines. Then individuals themselves will become immortal.

24  Questions And Challenges / Challenges To Anarcho-Capitalism / Voluntaryism, Space, and Survival on: March 06, 2013, 09:01:21 PM
Maybe I have been reading too much Sci-Fi lately but.....

Does political philosophy matter? If humanity continues to fight and bicker over political philosophies and never achieves efficient space travel* (thereby making our species immortal**), what is the point of investing energy into political philosophy? In approximately five billion years, Sol will engulf our planet and completely destroy it. Once humanity has efficient space travel, like minded people could just group together and settle a new planet. All of the political, religious, etc groups could just get together in their respective communities and settle a new planet(s) in a new star system(s). But until then, why both investing energy into establishing anarchism, fascism, communism, whatever it is, on Earth?

*Efficient space travel is defined as space travel between star systems either instantaneously or significantly less than one standard year.
**While efficient space travel alone would not guarantee immortality, it would inevitably set off a chain of events which would lead to humans to spreading not only throughout our galaxy, but beyond, and beyond that into other dimensions & universes.

So, how'd it go?

26  General Category / General Discussion / Re: A New Land on: March 01, 2013, 09:49:24 PM

If you believe there is absolutely no defense against a state, why would a different planet be safe?  Why wouldn't they see the new planet as a goldmine of potential new subjects to control?

Oh absolutely they would. However, let us say that the technology to build sleeper ships with FTL technology is developed. Voluntaryists (or any political group) could build a few of these and send out their followers across the galaxy to the most remote parts of space, away from governments, states, etc.

But even with our level of technology, voluntaryists could forge a new land. If a group of voluntaryists built a self-sufficient colony on an isolated moon (ie: Europa or Titan) they would most likely be unharnessed by Earth governments for quite sometime. And hopefully by the time the Earth's government decide to take a more hostile interest in the voluntaryist colony, the voluntaryists would have developed the technology to either pacifisticly defend themselves (planetary shield) or flee further into space (via FTL technology).
27  General Category / General Discussion / Re: A New Land on: March 01, 2013, 06:50:16 PM
Recently, I have come to the conclusion that voluntaryism cannot be achieved while humanity is confined to a single planet. The institution of the State has existed on this planet for the past ten thousand years, and it is improbable that humanity will move towards a voluntaryistic society, in unison or even at all. Here in lies the problem, if everyone in the western hemisphere decided to become voluntaryists, the States of the eastern hemisphere would simply move in and conquer and subjugate the people of the western hemisphere.

Therefore, my most recent idea for colonization is as follows:

Location:  Another planet.

In my lifetime, I can only expect to see spacecraft that have the capability of transporting individuals within the confines of our solar system. Within one hundred or two years, humans may develop the technology to traverse to other nearby star systems, which in that case, I would encourage voluntaryists to seek refuge in those other star systems, hidden away from the rest of humanity.

As to during my lifetime, I will try and put energy into the effort of allowing self-sufficient colonies in our solar system. If you are a voluntaryist, such as myself, who does not possess the technical know how (engineering skills), there are ways to further the progress of space colonization. One such way to to fund organizations that research 'future' technologies, such as carbon nanotechnology and fusion reactor technology. Another such way is to build your own space industry business. One such individual was Richard Branson, who has assets in airlines, music, telecommunications, and space industries.

That's your call. What are trying to do with this girl?

I am going to this party for these reasons:

A) Have fun
B) Become friends with girl
C) Become friends with her friends
D) Get invited to future parties

Beyond that I definitely would like hook up with someone, but as this is my first party ever, I don't want to set outrageous expectations. 
29  General Category / Lounge / Re: Parties on: March 01, 2013, 04:01:23 PM
Thanks for the responses.

One last question: What is the etiquette surrounding arrival time? The party is "at 9pm" in her words. Do I arrive at 9pm? 9:15pm? 9:30pm? 10pm? 11pm?
30  General Category / Lounge / Re: Parties on: February 27, 2013, 12:06:02 AM
Thanks for the experiences and information.

To add, I am not sure what kind of party it will be. In class, the girl just said that she is having a party on Saturday at 9pm and that she will message/text me the details.
