Shit, we've been caught
you know how old people seem to get a bit shorter as time goes on?
what happens if you never die.
you just inverse grow
I've been thinking recently about the pros of a constituional monarchy. I think there is untapped potential that is overlooked in a constitutional monarchy. I'm not saying that one should be put in power, just that it has some benefits.
The main reason I was thinking about this is, if someone spent 20 years being taught to lead a nation it would be a great benefit. Especially, if the person elected into monarchy was a highly qualified individual
who could teach their offspring
It’s not a merit based system though. Some heirs just aren’t fit to lead.
I mean tbh, if the king had multiple heirs
he dedicated over two decades teaching
it might be good
teaching how to manipulate the people into blinding following you for your own selfish gains? oh yeah, brilliant.
you know what might also be a good idea? Autocrats school 101, hosted by hillary clinton.
No I mean, if the constituion made it illegal for the king/queen to porfit from it
and the king/queen also had to teach morals and ethics
to their heirs
They profit from it by default, they have most of the power.
Or the are just a figure head.
@Timcast M hey i watched your video about abortion where you compared a baby to a vampire and I was thinking does this mean you’d be ok with me removing money given to people on welfare since they are sapping my life in a slightly different but comparable way only i never did anything that would lead them to suck out my life
Figured this was a better place
Then you also need to get rid of the benefits a king would get. Some are in it for the power and nothing else.
removing a baby from your body is different from shooting someone in the head
providing welfare to a person is different from forcing a person to provide their being to another
the blood of a woman is not the same as handing someone a sandwich
i dont like abortion and I dont think it should be used as contraception
but Im more worried about a government that can mandate you provide your body to another
Hi there Tim! Been watching here and there for a while, and I have a thesis I would like torn to the ground if at all possible.
It's presented under the name CanadianDaves on your Trump of Brazil assassination attempt vid.
Hit me up wherever if you find a ten foot pole!
Clinton had a good line on abortion: "safe, legal, and rare"
I mean slick willy not the hilldawg
Problem is, is that the democrats have completely forgotten about the "rare" part.
In fact their antics in protests and media seem to be advocating more abortions, not less. People wearing "ask me about my abortion" shirts is retarded. It's self-defeating.
They ought to be using their donation money to fund charities that give out free contraceptives instead of using the money to make abortions seem cool.
And policy wise I think it's better to promote policies that help make some abortions unnecessary. Try to determine the exact reason why women choose abortion, and then develop policies that would minimize that motivation.
Hook-up culture and the death of marriage mean that a lot of women who would choose abortion would otherwise end up struggling single moms. I have to be honest and say that I haven't checked the stats but I would hazard a guess that married couples rarely have abortions.
People are worried about roe v wade being thrown out because of cases of the mothers life in danger and rape but the current speaker of the house and the former republican presidential contender of 2012 both have made it clear that they support abortion in extreme cases.
Politically it's not a hill worth dying on. Wish someone would tell Shapiro and the paleocons though.
What do you mean?
@Timcast from a logical perspective the government would not be mandating the mom provide he body rather mandating the protection of the life of the child. For example if the child could be removed from the body in a way that the child could live in a machine and become healthy still, that sounds like it is still pro-life to me.
For abortion the law would have to be enforced as murder, and murder is only acceptable under extreme cases of self defense.
I do see where you are coming from though and I think your position is respectable.
