Of course it's complex. So complex in fact, you get the Economic Calculation Problem. πŸ‘ŒπŸ˜‚

2017-05-10 00:44:07 UTC [/leftypol/ International #international]  

@petit bourgeois
Capitalism decentralizes all economic calculations to the most local and individualized level. This is essentially what the price system was for to begin with, where resource allocation is indirectly controlled through private ownership and trade, which leads to what is known as spontaneous order. Another term for this is Adam Smith's Invisible Hand.


2017-05-10 00:46:14 UTC [/leftypol/ International #international]  

@petit bourgeois
Supply and demand is one of the dynamics carried out in the market in regards to the rate of trade and production, since all decisions are ultimately voluntary.

Right now, almost none of them. The Right-libertarians have moved on with their lives, and the authoritarian Right (ex: Neocons) is too focused on geopolitics and war as of now. The exception being the Neo-Nazis.

Well this is a very diverse group. Not sure if you were told this yet, but I'm an anarcho-capitalist actually, so my approach, means, and end might differ altogether.

But with that being said, to the extent of my knowledge I am convinced that the whole minority rights movement is completely bogus in this age and even deliberately skewed against white people. More specifically, white males. This is coming from a Filipino American citizen, and I haven't seen any level of favoritism on the basis of race anywhere in the US...with the exception of blacks and Hispanics.

I argue that it isn't capitalism unless all transactions are exclusively private and voluntary, which implies a free market. Corporatism is what you end up with when you start a nation with a _preexisting_ government infrastructure to interfere in the economy and draw out taxes and impose regulations and fees in order to sustain itself, which wouldn't be capitalism since the entire infrastructure requires coercion in order to sustain.

I argue otherwise, because it presupposes the naturalistic framework while dismissing the only verifiability that is subjective experience, i.e idealism:

2017-05-15 01:22:29 UTC [/leftypol/ International #international]

Can you prove that? Is a materialistic framework more verifiable than a subjective one, where the only thing you're ever actually able to verify is your own direct experiential perception?

@Deleted User
Logically speaking you can't prove that atoms and the void are all that exists when your mind is actually all you really have. I argue that it's not matter or energy that is the most fundamental, but information; defined simply as whatever subjective pattern that is.

Lel Nietzsche's Will to Power

2017-05-15 01:30:44 UTC [/leftypol/ International #international]  

This world: a monster of energy, without beginning, without end; a firm, iron magnitude of force that does not grow bigger or smaller, that does not expend itself but only transforms itself; as a whole, of unalterable size, a household without expenses or losses, but likewise without increase or income; enclosed by "nothingness" as by a boundary; not something blurry or wasted, not something endlessly extended, but set in a definite space as a definite force, and not a sphere that might be "empty" here or there, but rather as force throughout, as a play of forces and waves of forces, at the same time one and many, increasing here and at the same time decreasing there; a sea of forces flowing and rushing together, eternally changing, eternally flooding back, with tremendous years of recurrence, with an ebb and a flood of its forms; out of the simplest forms striving toward the most complex, out of the stillest, most rigid, coldest forms toward the hottest, most turbulent, most self -contradictory, and then again returning home to the simple out of this abundance, out of the play of contradictions back to the joy of concord, still affirming itself in this uniformity of its courses and its years, blessing itself as that which must return eternally, as a becoming that knows no satiety, no disgust, no weariness: this, my Dionysian world of the eternally self -creating, the eternally self- destroying, this mystery world of the twofold voluptuous delight, my "beyond good and evil," without goal, unless the joy of the circle is itself a goal; without will, unless a ring feels good will toward itself--do you want a name for this world? A solution for all its riddles? A light for you, too, you best-concealed, strongest, most intrepid, most midnightly men?-- This world is the will to powerβ€” and nothing besides! And you yourselves are also this will to powerβ€” and nothing besides!

He was incredibly pretentious and speculative when formulating his existential philosophy. He didn't really formalize it, but he did conceive of ideas that were formulated previously.

2017-05-15 01:47:09 UTC [/leftypol/ International #international]  

My philosophy doesn't exclusively reduce down to solipsism. It's a more developed framework of idealism where, in this case, language would originate from systems of information. This is an epistemic realism position, although there are many variations of it that deal with the underlying metaphysics. The _basic_ idea is that the World is an interface. Call it a simulation if you may.

2017-05-15 01:51:24 UTC [/leftypol/ International #international]  

Instead of Bit from It, you get It from Bit. This concept reduces all of material reality to code that could potentially be replicated on a quantum computer, and theoretical physicists today are using this Information-Theoretic approach as a replacement for this previous spacetime-centric worldview, which was significantly more constrained. They've managed instead to reduce things to a more basic level, where networks and relations are actually more fundamental than the objects they are allegedly derived from.

2017-05-15 01:57:39 UTC [/leftypol/ International #international]  

@Deleted User
Well no. This is simply a novel view of the world that could actually yield more fruit than our current materialistic framework that puts everything in a box rather than seeing nature as it is. I plan on learning more about physics through this approach, as it's what many physicists have explained could lead to the Theory of Everything, reconciling quantum mechanics with general relativity. Our current framework isn't capable of doing that; but this one aims to do so: http://www.quantumgravityresearch.org/publications
