Does money make the world go round?

AZSX5462
Stupidape

Money is making everything go round. Money solves the mutual coincidence of wants problem. Which means, among other things, that it better enables individuals to prosper by serving the desires of their fellow men through voluntary exchange, instead of prospering by the theft and plunder of coercive force. Not that it eliminates coercion, mind you; it merely extends the boundaries of the more desirable option....

Increase: In order to avoid semantics (for example, someone arguing it should be increased by 0.001 cents an hour), I will specify: the person who accepts must support *at least* an increase to $10 an hour. Though,...

The things we could fix with that money, it could go towards education and our schools, fixing up our roadways and improving the failing infrastructure in our states. I live in a small tow...

Should the Confederate Flag be publicly flown/shown?

dloslund
CJames

We shouldn't force ANYONE to see the Confederate Battle flag, and if we take it down from flagpoles, no one will have to see it. I'm not saying that the Confederate Battle Flag is bad in any way, but it could inspire children to find out more, even without their parents' approval. If a child's parents want their child to grow up sheltered, then they can do that while still bringing their child into public areas without the risk of them seeing anything they shouldn't. On the other hand, if a pare...
