Lonely girl, I honestly think that you`re the only one who really cares. Face it, men are the more visual gender and there are plenty of woman who have found that it`s very easy to use this to their advantage. Yelling at guys for getting excited about a couple of good looking women is like yelling at a bird for flying. And honestly, sex is a part of everyday life, if you can`t handle that, then look at a future as a nun. On a side note, feminism is pretty much useless nowadays, seeing that women have the same amount or more rights than men, (in the U.S.) and women can sue big corporations for getting paid less than any given male counterpart etc. Not that I disagree with this, I`m just saying, feminists need to stop screaming "Sexist!" at every little thing. If the rant made little to no sense, it`s because you are refusing to see facts, or because I`m tired :P

Angillion... doesn`t this sound like objectification to you? And really, if ur correct in ur thinking that sexuality is an acceptable means of getting ur message across, then, as a 14 year old female, i`ll make sure next time i need to talk to a male teacher about a mark, i`ll wear a low cut top and lean over as i speak. Because as your saying, that would be totally acceptable because i`ll be getting what i want. correct? Thanks, I`ll deffinately take into consideration that this is what 40 year old males want me to do.


hon- 1. he`s 18-29. 2. yes, it is. 3 sorry you have to find out on the internet.

If my History classes taught me anything:

Democracy is a political system

Yet Capitalism is an economic system.

There`s no way in hell that they`re equal.

"elf, are you retarded? History proves it: Capitalism=win, socialism=fail. Everybody thinks they can do it right. None have yet."

Pure Capitalism= Greedy men, who would chop off their right nut for money and put children to work in terrible conditions.

Pure Socialism= Equality for everyone in every way for better or worse.

Pure Socialism won`t work, the same as pure Capitalism won`t work, America is about 85% Capitalism. America as a country is beginning to fall apart. Now what we should be doing, is what many European countries are doing and try to balance between Socialist and Capitalist ideas. But because Americans as a people are stubborn and ignorant when in groups (sometimes individually) I couldn`t see that happening, this is why I plan to move to Canada.

@seneca22:
Saying that America is not a democracy is as incorrect as saying that it is. The fact of the matter is that to argue whether or not America is a democracy is completely pointless unless you first define what a democracy is. The problem is no universal and absolute definition of a democracy exists. One thing is certain, America is not a direct democracy. However, I would argue that under most definitions, America qualifies in broad terms as a representative democracy, a liberal democracy and more specifically has often been referenced as a republican democracy or a democratic republic. Being so black and white as to say that it is incorrect to call the US a democracy and that one should call it a republic is a misunderstanding of paradigms in political theory. They are loose categories, often varying substantially depending on which author you read, that often overlap and are not as mutually exclusive as you would make them seem...

Fatex52986... "What the hell do you think a republic is? Its a representative democracy. i swear people dont pay attention in school..."

Oh really? I think it is a constitional republic. And you would be aware that most educational texts refer to the American government as a Democracy only. Our Founding Fathers instituted a form of government guided by the rule of law rather than the desires of a majority of voters. They understood that a democracy is always in flux and given to “mob rule,” while a republic is fixed and stable, resting on “the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God.” Many of the references to America as a democracy are harmless, being made out of ignorance by people who are just repeating what they were told in grade school or on the evening news, some of the references betray a desire to change the very fabric of the nation.

Is anyone advocating this? If not, your argument is made of straw.

I was watching The Apprentice UK last night. The UK is far more "socialist" than anyone is advocating for the USA. Sir Alan Sugar started with £150, flogging cheap stuff from a council flat. He`s built that up to about £800M. So what`s that about "socialism" again?

Selfishness and greed are bad things, yes.
However they are the only means that actually initiate productivity, creativity, and motivation.

Think about it, in a true 100% government ran country, they could tell you to produce an electric spatula, a completely useless device, and you have no say whatsoever. No one would try to better the device because more than likely the idea will get turned down. And if the government told everyone that they will get $50,000 a year, no matter what they did, well I`m going sit on my butt and watch my flat screen, eat popcorn, and play video games all day.

A guy came into my store the other day, and started playing scratch offs. He said he didn`t care if he lost because it wasn`t his money, and it was going back to the government. AKA, he`s on welfare/SS/disability/etc spending it on lotto.

If the US goes to a true socialism, then more people like him are going to pop out of the woodworks because they can benefit from laziness.

The closest I know of to a capitalist state ever existing in reality would be early feudal England, in which 90% of people didn`t even own themselves and were very lucky if they lived to 40. Even that wasn`t pure capitalism, because the serfs had some labour rights.

If you have pure capitalism, you have pure oppression in a totally rigid class structure. Rich = nobility, poor = commoners. A bit less capitalism gives a slight amount of class mobility.

The opposite to capitalism is communism, not socialism. Socialism is neither extreme.

Im with Abacab2112 on this one, capitalism has nothing to do with democracy, corporatism does though and that can happen in any economic system. And we haven`t seen real capitalism since the 20`s so quit complaining, and enjoy this "great" welfare state you wanted so bad or move to Europe.
--------------
And even in the 20`s, we had socialized police, courts, etc. There were a lot of regulations placed on the market, though not as many as today. I admire Calvin Coolidge and Warren Harding for their reduction of intervention in the economy, but he still let prohibition go on.

Corporatism doesn`t exist in ANY economy system, by the way. It can only exist in statism, where the government has a legal possibility for violence. The only answer is to privatize all means of production, including defense. But I only have 125 characters left, so if someone wants me to explain THAT, I`ll use a

Capitalism is selfish. Society will end on it`s knees in unfairness and burn. Socialisme makes society work together for a common purpose and as i see it, only bring it up. how can people NOT go for something that in total will benefit EVERYONE? because they are greedy. greeeeeeeed my frieinds are the two enemies! as displayed by these two hot girls with posters :)

Well, it depends on what kind of socialism you want: statist socialism or anarcho-socialism. Statist socialism is incredibly greedy because the bureaucracy involved and the oligopolies created cause enormous shifts of wealth that would never happen with solely the will of the people. Anarcho-socialism is somewhat voluntary, but it restricts people by excluding capitalism. An anarcho-capitalist/voluntaryist society would allow people to be socialist if they want to.

Socialism will have the same problem as capitalism, except it will be government corruption as opposed to private corruption. The problem that we have is that we have compromised legislation that doesn`t completely cover all the bases in an attempt to fool ourselves that we are still somewhat free of government influence and/or control.
If you want a socialist society, I can recommend a few good countries. Otherwise, leave it alone for those of us that still like it.

i was talking about this yesterday with my friend... he and i agree socialism will work until somebody becomes greedy. everybody works together until somebody wants to take over the government. Democracy hasn`t realy been allowed in socialism, or independence. if you have both, then it will work, because the people are happy. they have choices and can get power without harming too much.

They`re right, Capitalism does not equal Democracy.
However, Capitalism does equal FREEDOM.

A free people is not equal, an equal people is not free.

In a capitalistic society you have the freedom to succeed. You also have the freedom to fail. You have the freedom to suck on the teat of the government you hate so much.

And as for hotness, I`d have to go for the one on the right.

Angillon: Your country is a constitutional monarchy. This means that the power is invested in the constitution rather than the monarch. If that were the only difference, the monarch would simply act like the executive branch in the States, carrying out the law of the constitution. However, your constitution says that there will be an elected representative to carry out the laws, so the monarch becomes really only a figurehead. England is a republic in all ways but one.

As far as the political point goes, the two systems are unrelated, but I think that is their point. A lot of people do consider the two inseparable, so I think they are trying to bring up the point that they don`t have to go hand in hand. Not that I agree with their probable political views, but that`s what I get out of what they`re saying.

Lonley girl: The truth is, people like to look at attractive people. Girls like to look at attractive guys just as much as guys like to look at attractive girls. Personality is what matters in the long run, but there is nothing wrong with looking. Further, there are plenty of people on here who actually are considering the political point that is brought up. And this is supposed to be a joke anyway. Most people don`t really take protesting seriously, so these girls are just poking fun at it.

Browsing around for definitions of a republic (there are several), I found the odd idea that (a) the power of a monarch is always absolute and (b) monarchy and democracy are incompatible.

Since I live in a country (England) that has had both for 800 years and in which the power of the monarch has never been absolute, it made me laugh. The power of a monarch is never really absolute anyway. Even in feudal times, the monarch needed the support of the nobility.

According to the definitions in this thread, the UK is a republic because it`s a representative democracy. That throws a spanner in the definitions.

If no-one is considering the political message at all, why are there so many posts in this thread about the meaning of democracy? Obviously, you are wrong - the message is being seen and is therefore being considered.

However, that wasn`t my point. My point was that you are wrong to say that women in a sexual context are objects.

Sorry Philo, that definition is wrong. Fate`s is a little better. In general, a republic is a state that either:

A) Has a non-monarchy chief of state (i.e. a President)

AND/OR

B) Representative democracy (technically, a body of voters who exercise authority through elected officers, whose governance duties/responsibilities are defined in law.

Of course they`re different concepts Lando, but stop building your winter strawman and think about `why` they`d write that.

There`s a good number of people who think that any change towards `socialism` or any idea that may challenge the free market works directly against freedom to do as they want or make money, which is how view democracy.

Explain why all the fuss about offering affordable health care to citizens in the US? There are a lot of folks who equate a public option with an "end to democracy".

Explain the almost "witch hunt"-esque views taken on communism during the MacCarthy trials.

The fact is, there are just some versions of government that work better with certain economic systems. It`s hard for a communist state or a monarchy to have pure capitalism. The first has issues with information freedom, which I think is necessary in a good democracy. The second has issues with aggregation of money and power.

So yes, you`re right, but you mi

Right now, they get more respect from me than you do.

They`re using sexual attractiveness as a tool to promote a political ideology.

You`re using a political ideology to promote the idea that women in a sexual context are objects.
