A very bad idea, unless your plan is to stay within a very safe range of printing, with which probably couldn't fund a streamlined version of a night watchman state. So, not that I would generally be against that but, it is hardly feasible. The Adrian Empire? What happened to your nation? Nothing, ...

Replies: 45

Arm the ships and give them the right to kill the pirates. They already have that right. They just choose not to exercise it, because they bothered to think about what would happen if the pirates felt that not killing anyone would be a threat to their own lives. Especially since the pirates are qui...

Taxes vary on the state that collects them, most are flat taxes, right now the highest is 25% and the lowest is 1% of income, ignoring the few that run entirely on charity. The Celestial Union itself has no taxation but rather collects a fixed fee from all member states. The Adrian Empire as it's ow...

Fine, then you get a crappily trained, poorly motivated, poorly paid fool who will all die to professional well-trained, well-motivated, well-equipped soldiers. So, no, actually, soldiers (and war in general) would not be cheap. You mean like when the better equiped better trained and paid US force...

Since I've actually listened to the interview, I can confirm that the statement was significantly less Tebbit-esque than has been claimed. IDS instead suggested, in response to unemployment in the Vale of Gwent, that people could take a 1 hour bus commute to Cardiff for work instead of waiting for ...

The Worst Form of Government, except all others that have been tried. To explain further, democracy has many faults, but all of them much less then any alternative government.

The problem was specifically with the railroads and silver inflation, still it isn't as if Austrians deny that recessions would occur under a free market, they believe they would be minimal in scope and less common. It's also a huge difference in the response to recessions. Austrians believe that t...

Yea it's not like the government provided subsidies to specific railroad lines when there wasn't any demand for them. That never happened. There in lies the rub.

Paradoxically, proof of a God's existence would disprove the Abrahamic God, since he makes it quite clear we are never going to find ultimate proof of him and should take it on faith.

It's not really something someone should take up unless it's convenient.
