hmm. I don't know about that. Think about the various taxes put on the sale and production of the product as well as regulations put on the company to do all sorts of things from quality control to inclusion of the nutrition facts.


I don't think about those things. I don't care about those things. I just eat my cereal.

Most things might be in some way affected by politics, but that doesn't make them politics.

If you don't like politics, you might as well kill yourself.( no offense intended.) Of course, that might not even help as what ever your religion ( excepting atheism, but that's not really a religion.) there is an afterlife or you get reborn. if it's afterlife, then some almighty deity or deities are ruling it which is dictatorship. if you are reborn, then you still live in a politic riddled world. the world as we know it was built with politics. Face it, you don't hate politics, you hate the people that made it so mind-numbingly stupid/boring and those who complicated everything to the point that if you vote for a law/ measure, you actually vote against it.

But I digress. This post was not or ever was intended for belittling or otherwise hurting/insulting any entity, person, or religion.

And I disagree. If a thing is defined as "political" it's only because the ignorant masses have put that label on it.

But I also think we're using different definitions of the word politics, so I'll define my meaning here:

The activities associated with the governance of a country or other area, esp. the debate or conflict among individuals or parties having or hoping to achieve power
The activities of governments concerning the political relations between countries
The academic study thereof

And again, I hate politics. The people make the system and the system makes the people. I hate them all and have as little to do with the whole mess as possible.

If you support politics, you might as well kill yourself (offense meant) because you're either broken and you'll make the system worse or the system will break you and make you worse.

No come-backsies.

All I want to say is that politics is as essential (Did I spell that right?) to human development as... say Flash is for Youtube.

Again, see above disclaimer.

Just because the latter is presently essential doesn't mean that it can't be rebuilt on a better model that would make Flash (politics) obsolete.

hey what's up! project phoenix ftw! def. gonna get back on that ride when the time is right =) and it will be in a year or two ;)

I do support Ron Paul to an extent but he takes things a bit too far imo. he's still the closest to my philosophy out there. everyone else seems corrupt or just plain stupid...

Eh, fair enough.though I do want to point out that for the majority of the human races' history, this is the better alternative.

I don't know that you can say that with any kind of scientific accuracy.

You can't compare the results of choosing one over the other. You also can't determine the future worth of one choice over the other. So you're always looking for what works right now instead of what might work in the (relatively) far future. You can use these same arguments on me, however, and then we eventually break down to "Does it even really matter?"

It's an opinion.

But, for the record, I am the 1%.
