If many prominent British politicians keep sneering at the British working-class, its because the British working-class keeps doing and saying and engaging in behaviour that attracts such sneering in the first place. A truly dignified bunch of people wouldn't even attract the sneering contempt of t...

Thornberry is out of the race. Probably for the best, she might have done a decent job in opposition, but people will remember her the same as Gordon Brown; sneering at the working class. She wouldn't have got Labours core voters back. If many prominent British politicians keep sneering at the Brit...

There is a gigantic difference between how private rights and public regulations work. Public regulations are not rights, they work et al , they are exigible by the State but no one specific individual has a Hohfeldian claim-right or owes a correlative obligation in respect of that public regulatio...

First off, the idea that the Crown owns some residuary rights in all freehold estates is extremely misleading and has been rejected by virtually all scholars in land law, like Dixon and Goymour. A fee simple reverts to the Crown only in the event that a freeholder dies without a will and no next-of...

There is no common good. If someone owns property in an area the state wants to build on, and he then doesn't want to leave, then that infrastructure project shouldn't happen, unless they can find a way of doing it without knocking the property down. The sate partially owns literally all property i...

Exactly the point. If there is no welfare, people might die. However, it's not the fault of 'society' that they do, it's on them for not getting work to pay the bills. Kind of hard to do when the one percenters own most of the national income. In the US; trump gift to those that don’t need help are...

Bro people have been having sex outside of marriage for a long time. They just didn't talk about it Some people. It definitely wasn't as widespread as it is now.

Sure. In particular, arranged marriages of children are part of our culture. Sex outside of marriage is also very much a part of our culture. This is not an argument. Arranged marriages of children were a general European aristocracy and royalty thing, but they aren't anymore (and that's been the c...

Lonely? Why? I have family, I still regularly meet up with old friends from high school, from Oxford, from internships, from my brief time in the SAF. Maybe this is overly-simplistic but I can't help but feel like so-called 'loneliness' is simply the product of people failing to maintain friendships...

Yes, again, because libertarians/capitalists see a big difference between voluntary acts and involuntary property transfers. Because it is a big difference. Do you seriously not think there's a big moral difference between a gift of US$500 and someone forcefully stealing the same amount? There's no...

This is literally just bad argumentation. The reason those States have high teen pregnancy rates is those States tend to restrict access to abortion and promote abstinence-only sex education that doesn't mention contraception and condoms. It has nothing to do with business-friendliness. There are n...

I mean, not really.

I doubt most people who have children it’s the result of condoms breaking. Condoms are 98% reliable. Also many people wish to at some point have children. Nowhere in child support law is there an exception, or several year grace period of the government picking up the tab, for a guy who wore a cond...

Well, yes, child support is inherently capitalist rather than socalistic. Socialism stresses generic financial obligations owed to the wider community. Child support is based on vindicating the duties and obligations that go with a private interpersonal or familial relationship (i.e., a parent-chil...
