Is there a best form of government?(moved to Politics)
I am prob more Conservative than most here.
I did vote for Bush the 1st time around...I am a libratarian tough.
I spend much time thinking what is the best way to govern.
Socialism seems like one of those things that looks great on paper but never seems to work in larger groups. I think if you had groups of 1000 or so Socialism would be a great way to do things. But not in millions.
Capitalism seems to reward hard work. But those who start on top dont really fall too often and it is hard to get from one level to the next. Like in the US even if you are one of the few who "make it" you are rich not wealthy as Chris Rock Explained. Shaq is rich the man who signs Shaqs checks is wealthy.
It is hard too because there are so many details....
I think all drugs should be legal....personal choice. But for what age? Sure you could say adult but what if you parent give you heroin when you are underage should the govt come lock you up. Well what if it is not so black and white what if you parent buys you beer?
What about destroying the enviroment....as a libratarian I think live and let live but at what point does someones actions hurting the Earth effect me enough to react. WHat if they burn thier trash? is that enough to say dont do that? what if they own a leather making shop and dump chemicals? What amount of chemicals is safe? Then at what point shoudl you go to war over someone elses enviomental policies? What if you coutries neighbor burned tons of coal upwind from your coutries farms and was killing the crops? What if they were just destroying all their land? (when the are all starving they are going to attack that is history)
BTW did anyone here read any books by Jared Diamond?
That concludes my rambling post.
