@ Augarundus 1.) Corporations are still the medium through which people create and, under an ancap, distribute goods. 2.) I fail to see how regulations/products made by corporation(s) would be designed to be of the same level as that of a state/gov't designed to meet those same standards for its peo...

I thought they were prevalent around these parts.

Most of them probably live in the US and Canada, where it is midnight right now. Or in Australia, where I think they're at work or in school.

I'm pretty sure those three countries make up a majority of NS.

It's 6000 BC, and your tribe has discovered agriculture, and now needs to defend its land from rival warlords. The spear was invented out of necessity as a means of defending yourselves. Is it possible that wars could be fought without the spear? It was developed for a reason! Your argument is flaw...

Can the anarchists list any society in all of human history which had no state, and which attained a level of collective security and well-being comparable to societies with stable, centralized states? Even today, there are still some stateless or near-stateless societies like those in Somalia, Afg...

Humans have prospered because of the rule of law, yes. Law has emerged as a means of resolving disputes and establishing predictable standards to regulate and foster social cooperation, and civilization emerges when social cooperation can take place. Only the most insipid anarchist wants a return t...

Currently, I'm watching Ouran High School Host Club .

So after about 8 years of this anime on the peripherals of my life, I'v...

Welcome to an over-saturated market, where it's easy to make things like that and make a decent amount of money. I would recommend trying the other mediums for Lovecraftian inspired things. Persona 2 felt inspired by Lovecraft a decent amount, Mushishi is apparently Lovecraftian inspired, I just ha...

For a while, I've been reading Tony Judt's Postwar , a history on Europe from 1945-2005, with a lot of focus on how Europe dealt with, or in some cases failed to, remove fascists from power, along with resistance movements. Now that this recent semester of university is done, I'll return to reading ...

Emocore fan. (I'm not an emo, and I've always doubted such thing exists, as most of the scene kids commonly identified as "emos" have never listened to true emocore.) Which is pointless to identify with as it is a minor subset of the wider indie rock fandom. Western otaku (also known as J...

I never done any colorizing but I'll sure as hell try it out. Yeah, if you don't have Photoshop, there's this site that I use called Pixlr Editor .

You know, this is something I always wondered about recoloring B&W photographs. How do you know which colors to use? If there's a portrait available of the person or someone of a similar rank, you use that. You can read up on descriptions people have based on encounters, as in news clippings or...

I like the Grant one. It has a mellow vibe that I think really captures Grant's off-the-battlefield personality, and the coloring is subtle enough to fit in with that. Yeah, I eventually came to find that in that pic he's definitely still fighting. He's near the end of his life and suffering from n...

Does anyone here have a strong interest in recoloring old black-&-white photographs? I learned about it roughly 3 years ago and have found it a fascinating way to re-envision life from over a century ago. This thread will serve as a space where you can post any recoloring work you've done, along...

That's not a victimization mentality. That's called being aware of reality. Poverty and racism ARE responsible for the major problems facing black people. Are Republicans fans of rock and roll, country, blues, jazz, etc? Because, you know, they all have significant black influence. 1. Even if that ...

The decline of black America has more to do with drugs, the thug culture, and most importantly the breakdown of the black family. Hip hop is just music. Referring to it as "just music" ignores that virtually regardless the sort of information a piece of media , it can still have an influe...

The elimination of infected civilians could potentially be seen as an attempt to cover up the Geth hand in the virus. Not only this, but you will likely be executing citizens who are neither in control or under irreversible conditions. We propose that research a cure or form a resolution between yo...
