jurov: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EO5ectGTcOU justJanne: the "sustained" was just your luck that usg needed to prop you up
trinque: if we presuppose that the only way to start a business will be having someone bankroll you, we're already lost
trinque: central planning has limitations which will mean that you get far fewer "startups"
justJanne: trinque: that is socialism
justJanne: not social democracy
justJanne: social democracy consists of a social market:
trinque: justJanne: you just misunderstand my definition of central planning
justJanne: essentially a free market, but with 50% taxes and basic income
trinque: uh huh and who determined those are the magic numbers?
trinque: give me a low cost of living and don't tax the shit out of me and I'll start all kinds of businesses
justJanne: the people? that’s why you have (a) elections and (b) public polls on them?
justJanne: we have a party that aims for that.
trinque: determining that 50% taxes is the magic number is not soviet because "the people"
justJanne: they got less than 4% of the votes last election
danielpbarron: the people are stupid
justJanne: no. they just know that one day they might lose their job,
trinque: danielpbarron: heh I always like "surgery by your peers" as a thought experiment
justJanne: and that it is preferable to be safe over having high returns
trinque: justJanne: you are completely ignoring the financial considerations involved
trinque: and substituting "consent" for that
justJanne: trinque: you get all those 50% taxes back to you. In free child daycare, free healthcare, etc. ☟︎
danielpbarron: high returns is a safeguard against starving when you lose your job; it leads to savings
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: Morphine yeast seems like a bigger blow to the fiat order than 3D guns and shovel AK's for sure
justJanne: danielpbarron: unless you lose it all, and have no money and are starving
trinque: danielpbarron: and results in a person that can *make decisions*
trinque: justJanne: then you made bad decisions
trinque: or someone else did
justJanne: yes.
justJanne: but society is there to save you from the consequences of bad decisions ;P
trinque: so how did I get involved in that?
danielpbarron: why should someone who is prone to "lose it all" be propped up by his more productive neighbors?
justJanne: especially when you aren’t responsible
trinque: justJanne: so out of this bundle of bad decisons how do good ones emerge?
trinque: danielpbarron: because govt is the new god and he can save us from even death
trinque: or she, I guess these days
justJanne: danielpbarron: because they have a chance to work later on again?
danielpbarron: this notion that you can be born "not responsible" is the false axiom from which you base further positions
justJanne: it is more profitable, for example, to put criminals into a trade school and let them work again than to put them into a prison
mats: why should society save you from yourself? that's not sustainable in the least.
trinque: justJanne: you cannot assert such things absent the financial considerations
trinque: we can imagine all sorts of ideal scenarios if we're free to disregard parts of reality we don't like
jurov: yeah, it is actually true providing shelter to homeless is cheaper than let them die and dispose of properly
justJanne: so, in your minds, the Comcast/ATT/Verizon oligopol is good?
mats: oligopolies are not inherently evil, you know.
trinque: justJanne: what keeps them from being outcompeted?
danielpbarron: justJanne, your society is a prison; that is, the one in which there is no individual and only the considerations of the lowest common denominator
trinque: too much noise; one point at a time.
justJanne: trinque: cost.
trinque: incorrect
justJanne: the starting cost is extreme.
justJanne: and the oligopols lobby corrupt politicians, too
trinque: justJanne: are you familiar with "regulatory capture"
trinque: sure cost but what makes it expensive
justJanne: and yes, mats, in my opinion all monopolies or oligopolies are inherently evil
trinque: but not governments
mats: justJanne: because "its not fair"?
trinque: the largest of them
justJanne: mats: yes.
mats: because everyone should get a shot at being a telecoms company!
justJanne: mats: yes, but you have to ask the question different.
cazalla: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=19-05-2015#1137291 <<< i wouldn't send my dog to free childcare let alone my actually son ☝︎
assbot: Logged on 19-05-2015 00:04:29; justJanne: trinque: you get all those 50% taxes back to you. In free child daycare, free healthcare, etc.
mats: sign me up. i don't know shit, but i can carry a gun. am i qualified?
mats: could do, like, perimeter security for a base station.
justJanne: mats: yes. my ISP I use right now is 5 geeks in a basement.
justJanne: I get 100/40mbps for 10$ a monht
justJanne: and they are profitable
cazalla: you might pay $100 to them in tax but you sure as fuck don't get back $100 worth of childcare when it's free
trinque: try doing radio experiments in your garage and see how long it takes for the FCC to show up
mod6: asciilifeform: thx for posting the werker
justJanne: cazalla: you haven’ŧ seen childcare here, I have – I was in it just 13 years ago ;P
cazalla: it shows
jurov: cazalla: so you'll pay $1000 for childcare instead?
mats: justJanne: b-but don't you believe in freedom?
mats: its entirely possible that monopolies, oligopolies will naturally arise in conditions of voluntary trade
justJanne: mats: your freedom ends where the freedom of the others begins
assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 91076 @ 0.0002709 = 24.6725 BTC [-] {4}
mats: and you want, what, a coalition of retards (e.g. bureaucrats and commoners) to manage allocation of capital?
justJanne: no.
mats: but you'd bust that up, if you ran things.
justJanne: no.
justJanne: the current situation is ideal.
mats: but they're evil. you must fight evil.
justJanne: neither side is evil.
justJanne: only sith deal in absolutes
danielpbarron: what is the current situation?
hanbot: except monopolies?
trinque: danielpbarron: social democracy
justJanne: monopolies aren’t really "evil", they just develop out of greed
hanbot: butr you said...
justJanne: the issue with monopolies is that the companies behind it try to do everything in their mind to avoid competition.
justJanne: which is inherently evil
trinque: justJanne: you find me a "monopoly" in history that didn't have govt protection
justJanne: and rarely monopolies every arise without this
justJanne: trinque: Google on the search market
hanbot: how about jealous wives? ☟︎
trinque: justJanne: fucking lol
trinque: you have no idea what a monopoly is
cazalla: jurov, nope, i'm anti-childcare, kids should be home with their parents, not strangers and other swine
trinque: it's not "oh no they're winning"
danielpbarron: she has no idea what "evil" is
mats: the point of being a business is to brutally murder your competition. there's no avoidance going on.
cazalla: my point was more that the idea that you get back what you pay in taxes by way of free healthcare and childcare is retarded
mats: it just happens that the moat is too high for joe commoner to cross.
jurov: cazalla: the $1000 figure stays even more so if you're to stay home
jurov: and if you pay your own doctor
jurov: own teacher
jurov: etc...
danielpbarron: cazalla, it's practically a mathematical proof : the further detached money gets from the person it is meant to benefit, the less efficiently it will be spent
justJanne: that’s why politicians are supposed to be normal people.
justJanne: my state’s governor uses the same bus as me every morning
danielpbarron: and i'm supposed to have a flying car already
cazalla: jurov, i would if i could, but i can't afford my own doctor.. i can afford to keep kid out of childcare
trinque: justJanne: many of the phrases you use are propaganda terms with no well defined meaning
trinque: "normal people" among them
justJanne: trinque: I am talking about "anyone can become politician"
cazalla: if you're gonna put your kids in childcare, ya may as well just kill em now and save yourself years of pain
trinque: justJanne: and derpy uncle Biden rode amtrak
jurov: and you trinque cazalla danielpbarron are talking about some ideal you can't afford anyway
trinque: so what
trinque: jurov: eh?
danielpbarron: i don't want to live in your socialist hell-hole where every man rides the same urine-smelling bus no matter how productive he is
trinque: jurov: if I had a kid right now I'd be able to pay for it just fine
justJanne: danielpbarron: it’s not urine-smelling, lol.
danielpbarron: yet..
justJanne: even the 10yo busses aren’t.
jurov: danielpbarron: go on
justJanne: because people don’t do that.
trinque: issue isn't the smell of piss
jurov: danielpbarron: how we live in north korea
trinque: justJanne: the issue is your assumption that you have call to involve yourself in my affairs
trinque: as this aggregate "the people"
trinque: I say come and take it.
justJanne: Ah, the english article for "social democracy" is actually wrong
trinque departs for now
justJanne: please read https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nordic_model instead
justJanne: that’s what I’m referring to
trinque: I will, bbl
danielpbarron: whatever you're referring to, the monstrosity has 50% tax rate!
justJanne: 44% here right now.
danielpbarron: disgusting
justJanne: and that’s including insurance
trinque: shit it's effectively 50 in the states too
trinque: danielpbarron: ^
justJanne: and life savings
justJanne: and retirement funds
jurov: danielpbarron: you will get separated from your money either way
trinque: and that's not counting the yearly evaporation of weath through currency debasement
danielpbarron: what do you mean it includes life savings?
justJanne: retirement funds, sorry
justJanne: translation is hard ;P
trinque: danielpbarron: people can't think for themselves and store away for the future
cazalla: justJanne, ya know what shit won't be there when you're older, right?
danielpbarron: right but how does it include that if it's taxes? the government forces you to have a savings plan?
trinque: so you just breed an irresponsible generation of fools and somehow those same fools don't inhabit the govt and make sure everyone has savings
justJanne: kinda, but not.
trinque pulls himself away
mats: i get that you grew up in a soft place, and believe all folks deserve a fair shot at doing whatever it is they feel
mats: its a beautiful notion. its also not going to happen unless we go post-scarcity, upon which we will revisit the whole thing
danielpbarron: except it's a very specific shot as per what the normal people voted on
justJanne: there are some laws: (a) every insurance has to provide a basic plan for the same price, (b) everyone has to have at least this plan, or more
mats: 'star trek' is a hell for some folks.
trinque: I'll prefer my firefly class vessel thank you
mats: yer a leaf on the wind
jurov: justJanne: do you know what this nordic model did to one Eric Naggum?
justJanne: mats: Star Trek is heaven, and an amazing solution. Although I’m thinking DS9 Star Trek, not TOS Star Trek
assbot: AMAZING COMPANY!
mats: 'solution'
trinque: mats: goddamn when jayne tears up over his very own riot
trinque: best tv there ever was
mats: replace with fantasy, man.
justJanne: mats: DS9-Star Trek is pretty much real.
danielpbarron: no wonder you think this can work; you saw it work on TV!
mats: trinque: its good stuff, i've watched every ep prob a half dozen times
justJanne: with a combination of free trade (think Quark), and basic life enough for everyone
danielpbarron: you know star trek is a work of fiction, right? those were all a bunch of professional liars
justJanne: yes, ofc.
danielpbarron: i don't think you fully grasp that
mats: you want free trade, but no monopolies or oligopolies.
justJanne: although, tbh, when watching politicians speak, you ask yourself who is the larger liar
danielpbarron: you're the one advocating for politicians
justJanne: mats: yes.
justJanne: read the nordic model again ;P
assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 29900 @ 0.00027017 = 8.0781 BTC [-]
mats: nordic model works because you live in a universe that appears utterly detached from economic reality
justJanne: the idea is that you have basic life just enough for everyone available,
jurov: danielpbarron: so you get to keep all your money, i ask again?
justJanne: and then you have a highly competitive, almost unrestricted market for the rest
danielpbarron: what money?
mats: because, well, benefits of superior geography.
jurov: danielpbarron: since you so hate taxes
mats: where the fuck are you going to raise capital for basic income in somalia?
jurov: mats leave that to billg
mats: somalia's not so different from the rest of the world. quite a bit ahead of its time, really
danielpbarron: justJanne, people who fall on hard times should be compelled into slavery by their more productive neighbors; they should not get to treat the whole community like their undeserved slave
danielpbarron: jurov, all but 0.1% of it :p
justJanne: you misuse the word "community"
justJanne: you can only live, and work, because of the people around you
mats: shall we talk about monopolies that benefit the commoners?
justJanne: and the same way the other way round
danielpbarron: no, I can work and live despite the people around me
justJanne: ah, the good old "I can live in a cave" defense
justJanne: I wonder how you’d do without the people taking away your trash, the people putting out the fires, the people cleaning your streets
danielpbarron: there wouldn't be streets if it were just me
danielpbarron: the situation would be so entirely different as to be impossible to compare
mats: lets use the US Postal Service as a model. something like 200 junk mailers are responsible for pumping $billions into the thing, and they pay a pretty penny to be able to shit in your box at commercial rates (in US, cost of letter is $0.49 -- junk mailers pay 5x that)
justJanne: let’s talk about different, benefitial monopolies.
mats: without junk mailers, we'd be paying several dollars apiece just to send letters. DHL, FedEx, ... simply couldn't exist without the USPS in USA
justJanne: nah, not really.
mats: because they are responsible for last mile delivery in many cases.
mats: yes, absolutely really.
justJanne: DHL makes most of its profit in one single place.
justJanne: in the place where Deutsche Post DHL has its main business:
justJanne: parcel and delivery service in Europe
justJanne: yes, they can transport a package for 20$ across the continent over night, and make a profit.
justJanne: sadly, the workers make nothing more than basic income from it
danielpbarron: sadly? why is that sad?
jurov: yes, raise minimal wages, fire everyone, replace with machines
justJanne: no,
justJanne: it is sad because under your assumptions those people shouldn’t work at all
justJanne: they make no more money,
justJanne: and spend their time!
mats: this is exactly how it is in the US.
justJanne: Then why do they still work?
mats: they don't.
mats: ~8mn draw supplementary security income, for example.
mats: folks in various programs draw $300-600/mo in govt kindness, and being worthless as they are,
justJanne: So, it's better to provide straight out subsidies than to have minimum wage?
justJanne: A minimum wage might encourage the company to actually be more efficient.
mats: would rather take it than work at McDonalds for just shy of a thousand bux a month
mats: subsidies AND minimum wages are a shit idea.
mats: you follow? let the market set the conditions.
assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 79500 @ 0.00026941 = 21.4181 BTC [-]
justJanne: Minimum wage doesn't hurt the market.
danielpbarron: justJanne, a minimum wage prices the cheap labor out of the market (the company will prefer not to hire them at all)
justJanne: Yes.
mats: you're high if you think setting a price floor in a market doesn't unduly affect market conditions
danielpbarron: so instead of making [not enough money], they will make 0.
mats: its time to give up the childish fantasies and carefully reexamine your beliefs
jurov: And high rents and other life costs won't "unduly affect market conditions"?
jurov: Pls explain
BingoBoingo still imagining tumblr folk brewing their own Laudnum. If opiate abuse is already straining the fiat world so...
justJanne: The median German pays less money for health care than the median US person.
justJanne: You pay more. And get less.
justJanne: You have higher taxes,
justJanne: And less free education or healthcare.
justJanne: and less welfare.
danielpbarron: i don't think anyone here is taking the side that the U.S. is a good example of how things should be
justJanne: It's not a childish fantasy of it's the currently best working system.
justJanne: If you want total anarchy, go to somalia, they live it.
BingoBoingo: Nah, go to Ferguson. They have community solidarity!!!
danielpbarron: it's a population that is still only a couple generations off from having the crap kicked out of it
justJanne: And if you break your leg and can't work for a month, you starve to death.
mats: jurov: you addressing me there with the quote?
jurov: mats, yes
danielpbarron: justJanne, I'm all for keeping people alive that would have otherwise starved to death. They just gotta be humbled by the experience; they aren't entitled to the help.
justJanne: They are.
justJanne: Because they played before 59% taxes for others.
justJanne: *50%
mats: jurov: i don't follow. so, because rent is high, folks should get a min wage/basic income
jurov: no mats. i'm saying you're going to be separated from your money either way
danielpbarron: justJanne, the point being, there are more solutions besides "let starve to death" and "steal from everyone to keep them alive"
jurov: so it does not make sense to argue either way
justJanne: danielpbarron: it's not stealing.
justJanne: If you want, you can move to Togo, or Monsanto City, or the Bahamas.
justJanne: And, as you stated, you deserve to be punished for being born here.
mats: it does matter, because govt involvement destroys price efficiency
justJanne: Not really true, either.
justJanne: It is often true,
mats: cost of living being high or wutever is immaterial, i think.
justJanne: But not necessary.
jurov: mats, you're not the first nor last fantsaizing of system without "govt involvement"
justJanne: Reminds me of Deutsche Bahn. A large railway company. Everything was fine, perfectly on time, cheap, profitable.
jurov: somehow, nothign came out of that
BingoBoingo: Eh, Monsanto's no so bad. The only problem with glyphosate is it doesn't always kill plants dead enough.
justJanne: Then they went to stock market and became a private company.
justJanne: Now Deutsche Bahn is slow, never on time, expensive, and not much more profitable either.
justJanne: Every. Single. Time. A governmentally owned institution got sold to a US investor they either closed down 2 days later, became shit, or just expensive. ☟︎
justJanne: Every. Time.
mats: i recommend a stint as a govt employee ☟︎
jurov: justJanne: it was govt involvement, dotcha know? :DDDD
danielpbarron: i think the key words in that story are "US investor"
justJanne: I don't care if the government owns the trains, as long as they are 100% on time, cheap, and fast.
danielpbarron: even if they are sometimes used to haul off political dissidents?
justJanne: That is not a part of the discussion.
jurov: lol, as if private enterprises never hauled political dissidents
justJanne: If the government rents a train for that (like Hitler did, the companies profited heavily) or if they own them (like the GDR did), changes nothing.
justJanne: But a governmental monopoly is always better than a private monopoly.
jurov: that's very bad statement
justJanne: Not really.
danielpbarron: that can't be true, and only appears to be because you use the united states as your example of the alternative
jurov: i have personal memories of govt monopolies in czechoslovakia
justJanne: And? Were they replaced by private competition or a private monopoly?
jurov: depends, some. but the is not the problem
justJanne: Assuming no corruption,
jurov: when everything is govt monopoly people who need autonomy, mastery and purpose suffer badly
justJanne: The private monopoly will have an incentive to provide the worst service possible, at the highest possible price.
justJanne: Yes.
justJanne: Most of the things need to be a competition, others need to be nonprofit monopolies.
danielpbarron: what's so bad about "the worst service possible" anyway ?
justJanne: Like the railway tracks, those can be nonprofit monopolies, while dozens of rail operators can rent them.
justJanne: danielpbarron: because that's shit?
justJanne: You want trains that operate every 20 minutes, at 240km/h, for 19€ across Europe,
danielpbarron: no, your totalitiarian government that forces me to raise my kids the normal way is what's bad
justJanne: Not shitty stuff.
justJanne: danielpbarron: you aren't forced to. You can also raise your children at home, ofc.
justJanne: At full pay.
mike_c: <+justJanne> Assuming no corruption, << this is where we enter star trek land?
justJanne: mike_c: kinda. But corruption makes discussion always useless. ☟︎
mike_c: exactly
justJanne: Especially as the amount of corruption is very different on where you are, and when.
justJanne: But again, the idea of the Nordic model is huge personal freedom, at the same time a stable society that provides a great basis for everyone.
justJanne: And the personal freedom in the Nordic model is larger than in the US. ☟︎
justJanne: Yes, somalia has more personal freedom, but again, try living there.
danielpbarron: you keep comparing your thing to the US
justJanne: Because the US is a reference point as worst case civilized country. ☟︎
danielpbarron: shouldn't you compare your thing to my thing? (the thing i'm proposing)
justJanne: So, perfect free anarchy?
justJanne: Can you provide a real life example?
danielpbarron: The Most Serene Republic
danielpbarron: this channel is the example
justJanne: We don't accept fictional systems here, only ones that exist in reality.
justJanne: For this discussion.
danielpbarron: that's rich coming from a trekkie
justJanne: As everyone can claim their model would work.
BingoBoingo: To be fair Corruption is what makes the world go round
assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 26500 @ 0.00026779 = 7.0964 BTC [-] {2}
danielpbarron: justJanne, your model works for as long as there is fiat money to manipulate
danielpbarron: which isn't for very much longer
justJanne: Not necessarily.
justJanne: The Nordic model works without currency.
justJanne: And, tbh, here no one cares about bitcoin.
danielpbarron: but does it work with bitcoin?
justJanne: Too high transfer fees, too slow transfers.
danielpbarron: that's ok, bitcoin doesn't care about them either
justJanne: But yeah, it would work with bitcoin.
danielpbarron: but you can't get your 50% from me..
justJanne: Why not?
danielpbarron: what is there to take?
justJanne: Your employer has to send that money to the govt. ☟︎
danielpbarron: nobody owns any bitcoin
justJanne: You never see the 50%
danielpbarron: suppose my employer doesn't
danielpbarron: because my employer doesn't have a physical basis of operations
justJanne: Then you will have to pay them.
danielpbarron: and he claims juristiction in the Most Serene Republic, and not your joke of a country
danielpbarron: pay them what?
danielpbarron: how do you know I have even been paid?
assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 44648 @ 0.00026546 = 11.8523 BTC [-] {2}
jurov: you don't pay for shelter, food nor transport?
justJanne: If you earn money in this country, work here (physical place of employer counts), or use your money, it will be taxed.
justJanne: If you earn your money outside, only use it outside, and so on,
assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 171621 @ 0.00026204 = 44.9716 BTC [-] {3}
justJanne: You are technically a tourist.
danielpbarron: why would anyone want to be based out of your country and pay 50% when they can be based out of The Most Serene Republic and pay only 0.1% ?
jurov: will The Most Serene Republic cover your medical expenses in case of accident? ☟︎
justJanne: The question is:
danielpbarron: jurov, those services will be provided by WoT members eventually I hope
jurov: well, i'm not holding my breath there
justJanne: Why should they live in the serene republic, where your insurance can run off with all your money, when they can live here, and have guaranteed healthcare?
danielpbarron: it's not a matter of where to live, but where to claim juristiction
justJanne: Nah.
justJanne: Where they do their physical work, rent a flat, but food — those things are taxes.
danielpbarron: but the reason is: keep 49.9% of your income and use the savings to buy healthcare later if you need it
justJanne: *taxed
justJanne: And what if you can't afford it at that point? ☟︎
justJanne: Your system is flawed.
danielpbarron: then i become a slave or die i guess
justJanne: It helps make the rich richer,
danielpbarron: the rich should be richer
justJanne: And the poor poorer.
danielpbarron: the poor should be poorer
justJanne: But society is people,
justJanne: And people deserve to be treated equal.
danielpbarron: no they don't
justJanne: Then go live in the US.
danielpbarron: I do
danielpbarron: it's not what you imagine it is
justJanne: In a few years, the US will have reached the level of freedom that somalia has.
BingoBoingo: "people" kinda suck http://www.reddit.com/r/fatpeoplestories/comments/366c7c/tlc_my_ass/
justJanne: Tbh, I like cities where you have to use the bike.
justJanne: With less than 47% of the people owning cars, and everyone using bikes, public transport, and walking, the amount of overweight people reduces drastically. ☟︎
justJanne: Okay, bbl, it's 3am
danielpbarron: i ride a bike everywhere in the spring/summer
BingoBoingo: Bikes don't have a clear niche where the really beat pedestrianism, motorcarriages, or rocket plane
justJanne: They do.
danielpbarron: oh they clearly beat walking

BingoBoingo: I dunno anything beats walking. ☟︎
jurov: !up joshbuddy
justJanne: If you have small narrow streets, distances between 10 and 15 km, and a huge amount of people on tiny space, ☟︎
justJanne: Bike is the only solution. (Or public transport)
BingoBoingo: Or walk longer, speed is overrated
danielpbarron: i bike amongst a sea of cars (ct shoreline gets crazy in the summer)
justJanne: Not helpful at 10-15km distance.
BingoBoingo: That's not really all that far on foot
justJanne: Almost all parcel companies, pizza delivery services, etc use bikes Jere for that reason.
justJanne: BingoBoingo: I walk that much daily, I know.
BingoBoingo: Sure
justJanne: Still it's not a distance that makes a car useful, but would be ideal for biking.
justJanne: Anyway, 3am, bbl
danielpbarron: car beats bike if money isn't a consideration

pete_dushenski: a year, mebbe a year and a half is perfectly sufficient to understand the insanity-on-a-stick that is state-run anything.
mod6: all you need is one trip to the post office
pete_dushenski: canada post is actually decent.
pete_dushenski: post offices are just a special counter in a corner of pharmacies
midnightmagic: Medicine here is good too, as are government-run car insurance corps which have superior prices to private enterprises elsewhere in Canada.
midnightmagic: Stats canada provides superior-quality reports to private enterprise. Environment Canada is the source for pretty much all weather everywhere in Canada.. Health Canada has very little politics in it, necessarily.
pete_dushenski: gov-run services in canada also service relatively few people and are unforgivably expensive.
pete_dushenski: and the relative quality of their output compared to the derpy canadian private enterprises still doesn't speak to how poorly they're run.
pete_dushenski: they're mostly funded and staffed to the rafters.
pete_dushenski: and they're awful to work for if you have ambition and half a functioning intellect.
mats: i witnessed a pretty serious amount of theft and graft, even at the company level in .mil
mats: can't imagine the kind of devilry a bent brigade quartermaster or commander can get up to
decimation: mats: ever seen sgt bilko?
mats: nah, heard of it though, i'll add it to ma list
decimation: it's funny. the troupe of the corrupt supply sergeant probably has a good basis in fact
decimation: of course, 'corrupt' can mean 'good at acquiring stuff without respect to derpy rules'
mats: it absolutely does

decimation: "Stats canada provides superior-quality reports to private enterprise." < what private enterprise provides reports on derpy bureaucracy?
pete_dushenski: lol right. "we make the best reports on the things we ate for breakfast. they're quite unparalleled in detail and accuracy."
mats: in my short stint, i shit you not, things like uparmored vehicles, munitions, and all sorts of tactical gear (e.g. night vision goggles, range finders, body armor) vanished into thin air, leaving the commander on the hook
mats: this occurred under the management of three supply dudes, each of them who successively transferred to another unit before shit hit the fan, and to my knowledge nobody's been locked up yet ☟︎
decimation: mats did you see that econtalk link I posted about lying in the military
mats: no
decimation: http://www.econtalk.org/archives/2015/04/leonard_wong_on.html
mats: yup
mats: there is this thing known as "zero defect" officers ☟︎
decimation: yeah he talks about that
decimation: 'everyone knows' they are lying
mats: because of the structure of officer corps, evaluations bear enormous weight, and you simply cannot ever fuck up
mats: because its "up or out", if you aren't worthy of a promotion according to n metrics, you gtfo
decimation: yep. Really us mil's problem is that is majorly officer heavy
decimation: if some random staff officer can demand that every 2lt must sign for whatever derpy training or equipment kind invalidates the 'chain of command'
decimation: which is imaginary anyway
mats: well, in that instance, company/batt/brigade cdr is responsible for managing an effective command environment
decimation: sure, and rather than trusting in his judgment, usg sees fit to shower him with thousands of 'requirements'
mats: the ugly status of officer corps is why i didn't stay in ROTC in univ
decimation: they talk the talk, but the actual 'walk' is 'play the bureaucratic/democratic politics game'
mats: the skimming going on was incredible lol

mats: meanwhile they pocket 70% of what the unit actually allotted for a meal
decimation: mats: I shudder to think about what the rest of usg is up to
mats: pallets of MREs would regularly go missing at the end of field exercises
decimation: pallets
decimation: I guess you could sell on ebay
mats: which is why you can buy MREs for three bux when USG pays twelve per iirc
mats: yeah eBay

mats: this guy definitely knows a bent supply dude
decimation: one wonders why the hell usg doesn't investigate this kind of stuff
decimation: I guess they are 'too busy'
BingoBoingo: Guy seems awfully close to Leonard Wood
mats: fort lost in the woods -- never again.
mats fondly remembers training event where we were forced to go MOPP 3 (overboots, gas mask, most of the NBC gear) with body armor and run around the track on a summer afternoon
decimation: I had a friend who went to 'real' MOPP training - he was suited in a room with VX gas.
decimation: he said it took several hours to donn/duff the gear
mats: i have a hard time believing VX was used in a training event
decimation: he might have been bullshitting ☟︎
BingoBoingo: This weekend I was traveling the still more southern parts of illinois, saw the first wild armadillo I've seen east of the missippi

decimation: http://www.gettyimages.com/detail/news-photo/army-soldiers-participate-in-mopp-gear-exchange-their-final-news-photo/1940525
BingoBoingo: The wild of armadillo was of course in it's natural state dead on the side of the road
decimation: "Soldiers from all branches of the Armed Forces, civilian first responders, and some foreign military attend the chemical school for training in various types of chemical detection and survival through several courses including practice in a hot zone where actual toxic agents such as the Sarin and VX nerve agents."
decimation: you couldn't pay me enough for that shit
mats: guys in the chemical corps were some of the most crazy ive ever met
decimation: there's no doubt that a 'real' chemical attack is gonna result in alot of deaths
decimation: the game is just to minimize it I guess
mats: chemical weapons are only useful for propaganda ☟︎
mats: absurdly expensive compared to the cost of a 5.56 round
decimation: under the right conditions I guess they could kill alot of people
decimation: the main problem with chemical weapons is the 'moral debt' they incur
decimation: you start gasing the enemy's cities, he can nuke/gas yours
trinque: antisocialist thread went about as I thought
trinque: glad I drank wine at ben_vulpes' office instead
trinque: :D
decimation: I suspect one cannot be against 'basic income' and 'insurance for all' without being a nazi in modern germany ☟︎
trinque: yeah I'm sure that informs the "modern" sensibilities
trinque: dad beat mom, son is a radical feminist
mats: fun fact: there is a Turing-complete printer control VM in the winders kernel
trinque autisms in the corner
decimation: http://www.csmonitor.com/World/Europe/2010/0302/US-grants-German-homeschoolers-asylum.-Will-others-follow "But German media have portrayed the case as an insult to the German system. Many Germans are shocked to learn that 1.5 million children in the US are homeschooled and that the practice is legal in countries like France, Italy, and Ireland.
trinque: mats: windows' spooler thing has a language in it?
decimation: ^ more nordic freedom
mats: trinque: yep.
trinque: well that's good.
trinque: this extensibility thing is braindamage
trinque: dev is insecure about whether his app covers all cases so he does things like that, builds a goddamn scripting layer into the thing because you know printing needs that
trinque: then 5 years later that's a part of history and you can't change that, who are you?
mats: another fun fact: there's also a Turing-complete PostScript VM in the kernel
trinque: NT or linux?
mats: ^___^
mats: NT.
BingoBoingo: I thought you were going to say both
trinque: history will hold that Windows was specifically intended for maximal didling
trinque: *diddling
mats: i dunno all that much about linux tbh
trinque: BingoBoingo: this probably means CUPS is too
trinque: postscript is probably itself turing complete
trinque: yup it is
BingoBoingo: CUPS is weird. Sometimes it just works, othertimes catches fire.
trinque: the perception is probably due to myriad shitty filters and ppd's by printer manufacturers
mats: you'd think there's not a good reason for the kernel to need PostScript
trinque: apparently there are good reasons for all kinds of rape these days
mats: but... you need it for printer stuff and fonts

justJanne: Without even the ability to vote on this, TTIP is unconstitutional.
williamdunne: Voting ain't freedom
justJanne: Nah.
justJanne: But without voting there is 0 freedom.
ben_vulpes: kakobrekla: how long do i have to wait for assbot to accept and act on my raitings?
williamdunne: Voting arguably reduces freedom
justJanne: Voting makes it 50% freedom, as at least 50% of the people gets their choice.
ben_vulpes: ratings*
justJanne: Without voting, there is 0 freedom
trinque: justJanne: 435/320mil are going to rubber stamp this thing and make me ok with it?
williamdunne: In that case with voting there is -1 freedom
williamdunne: It gives the idea of legitimacy to bad things
justJanne: Why?
williamdunne: If that is freedom, so is gangrape
justJanne: Not everything is bad, just because you don't like it.
williamdunne: Subjectively it is
ben_vulpes: but the average of opinions is good, because it includes everyone!1
cazalla: russians need to send more reds to rape german women tbh, fuck this shit
justJanne: But objectively not.
williamdunne: Objectively speaking stealing from people is bad
williamdunne: The fact that there is an organization doing it on your behalf makes it no better
justJanne: There is no stealing.
williamdunne: Regardless if you've got your popular mandate
williamdunne: *of if
justJanne: You do it voluntarily.
ben_vulpes: <williamdunne> Objectively speaking stealing from people is bad << nope, stealing from my enemies is grand.
trinque: justJanne: there is allowing the state to control the definition of money and of ownership.
trinque: the fucking end
justJanne: You could just move to Somalia.
justJanne: No taxes anymore.
justJanne: See?
justJanne: No stealing.
williamdunne: Thats not how this works
justJanne: It's your choice to live in a place with taxes.
williamdunne: No it isn't, I was born here
justJanne: We had that earlier.
ben_vulpes: lol and this is a 19yo girl
justJanne: And you said people deserve to be punished for the actions for their ancestors.
williamdunne: When did I say this?
justJanne: In this case, you deserve to be taxed because your parents were to stupid to move away
trinque: heh
ben_vulpes: and you deserve to be raped for supporting socialism then?
williamdunne: [citation needed]
justJanne: I think trinque was the one saying it?
cazalla: justJanne, hope you get raped by a gang of marauding muslims over there
trinque: I'll take it
williamdunne: Trinque's statements aren't my own, this isn't a government
trinque: yep
justJanne: So, williamdunne, you say people don't deserve to be punished for the actions of their ancestors?
williamdunne: Yes
justJanne: So everyone should, after birth, have the same chances?
ben_vulpes: <justJanne> mats: DS9-Star Trek is pretty much real. << aha she thinks scifi's real
williamdunne: No
justJanne: Why not?
williamdunne: Something can be without being enacted
williamdunne: The difference is the initiation
justJanne: Why should they be punished for their parents poorness?
trinque: justJanne: you use should to leap across things you don't want to have to think about.
ben_vulpes: <justJanne> Why not? << needs some context
trinque: this is nothing bad, just being young and not knowing anything
mircea_popescu: !up referredbyloper
williamdunne: They aren't being punished, they simply are
justJanne: Punishment through inaction is still punishment.
williamdunne: No, it isn't
trinque: you know, if socialists are happy in socialism, why isn't that fine?
trinque: I say sit in it
williamdunne: Because they enforce it on others, if they want to create a commune go for it
ben_vulpes: rot in your poo!
justJanne: I don't know. I have no issues with you guys building a state of anarchy, ☟︎
trinque: anarchy lol
justJanne: As long as this place can stay the way it is.
williamdunne: You don't really get a choice in what happens
ben_vulpes: and how would you know how this place is, justJanne
mircea_popescu: <justJanne> Currently the food production of the world could support 10 billion people. << that's not the point. sure, food could be produced to feed 10, 100, one trillion. does not mean anyone wants more idiots running around. too many as it is.
justJanne: trinque: you guys said you wanted a place where "no man rules over other men", no taxes, no government, no controls, no streets.
justJanne: That's pretty much anarchy.
trinque: no one speaks for me
mircea_popescu: who said this and where did they say it ?
justJanne: williamdunne said it, for example.
ben_vulpes: <justJanne> trinque: you guys said you wanted a place where "no man rules over other men", no taxes, no government, no controls, no streets. << source or seriously get the fuck out
justJanne: Several others said the same before.
ben_vulpes: williamdunne does not count.
trinque: scam
trinque: ben_vulpes: provacateur!
williamdunne: Once again, my opinions are my own
williamdunne: Something I have said does not apply to others here
mircea_popescu: justJanne you will have to learn to cite.
justJanne: williamdunne Don't want taxes
williamdunne: And I am not a lord
justJanne: williamdunne Don't want gov
ben_vulpes: <justJanne> williamdunne Don't want taxes << so what and whatever
ben_vulpes: kid doesn't matter
mircea_popescu: not merely because to prevail in arguments, but because a mind that's organised without strong sourcing of propositions is windows in a skullbox.
williamdunne: justJanne: Once again, you're quoting me
ben_vulpes: can't keep an irc bot up
justJanne: Yes, and I'm arguing with you.
mircea_popescu: aww why so mean!
williamdunne: On that note, scoop will be back later today
williamdunne: for good this time
williamdunne: I swearsies
mircea_popescu: good.
justJanne: If the others want to join the argument, they have to also measure themselves to your statements.
mircea_popescu: not how this works justJanne
williamdunne: Read the logs
williamdunne: Their positions are all in there
ben_vulpes: williamdunne: better to demonstrate than postulate.
williamdunne: justJanne: You're joining the argument, not the other way around
justJanne: No.
justJanne: I made yesterday some statements,
justJanne: That were picked out of context and attacked today.
williamdunne: What meanies
trinque: people review the logs and respond; get used to it
justJanne: By people saying they want no subsidies, but TTIP
mircea_popescu: they were taken out of the context you intended them in and placed in the wider context prevailing here.
mircea_popescu: this gives you an opportunity to explain yourself, or to go nuts i guess.
justJanne: I didn't go nuts yet.
mircea_popescu: not yet, no :)
mircea_popescu: incidentally, anyone ever tried nut-aged cheese ?
justJanne: I wonder how you guys actually think your social system will work in reality.
mircea_popescu: ever read anythng on the topic ?
justJanne: Yeah, a friend of mine was an extreme anarchist.
justJanne: So I read and learned a lot about it.
mircea_popescu: woman. your derpy friends are immaterial.
justJanne: Interesting idea, unless it is implemented, within of a dozen generations it often stops working.
mircea_popescu: i've known a bunch of german sluts, i don't go around assuming you're one, right ?
justJanne: Nah.
williamdunne: justJanne: What is implemented? WoT is alive and well
justJanne: But we talked through your topic a bunch of times.
mircea_popescu: yeah i guess time for a reading list.
justJanne: williamdunne: when you'd try to implement this system in reality, as a social system.
williamdunne: We're being social now
mircea_popescu: justJanne http://trilema.com/2012/gpg-contracts/ << start there.
williamdunne: It is implemented in reality
ben_vulpes: this is why we must insist on the log-reading, regardless of how cute or female.
justJanne: Especially the "let poor people become poorer" and the "rich become richer" part.
ben_vulpes: neither of which etc etc
williamdunne: Wut?
mircea_popescu: ben_vulpes also must give people rope to hang with, it's a tandem process.
ben_vulpes: NO
ben_vulpes: KILL NAO
BingoBoingo: <mircea_popescu> <justJanne> Currently the food production of the world could support 10 billion people. << that's not the point. sure, food could be produced to feed 10, 100, one trillion. does not mean anyone wants more idiots running around. too many as it is. << Speaking about agriculture. Lots of fallow fields this year.
justJanne: After just a dozen generations, your poor will rise up against you.
ben_vulpes tries to imagine the wealth of nagants bequeathed after a dozen cycles
williamdunne: justJanne: I shared all of your opinions at first, thought MP was a cock etc. I then had the decency to spend ~9 months reading logs and blogs before speaking
ben_vulpes: honey read logs
ben_vulpes: stop derpin
mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo from what i hear a major battle is raging in us agriculture. monsanto vs agrobiz
williamdunne: justJanne: Poor would benefit as much as anyone else, well, the working poor
ben_vulpes: this handle of your'n already burtn
ben_vulpes: burnt
justJanne: williamdunne: I read blogs about it for 3 years.
williamdunne: justJanne: Not about it
williamdunne: The blogs here
williamdunne: Scoopbots reading list
mircea_popescu: about something else masquerading as it.
justJanne: And it made me even more convinced it is a great system in theory. Not in reality.
justJanne: No, literally your ideas and statements.
ben_vulpes: <mircea_popescu> ben_vulpes also must give people rope to hang with, it's a tandem process. << maybe next cycle i can refrain
mircea_popescu: you've done what a hacker news reader would do, reading the usg piece instead of my piece and imagining "oh i read about crypto"
mircea_popescu: no, you have not.
justJanne: I even read dozens of logs of the chat before.
mircea_popescu: it doesn't show, somehow.
williamdunne: justJanne: No, you haven't
justJanne: Because I still don't believe it is a good idea.
BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: There's always the lover's quarrels with those two. Could just be phosphorous is getting expensive...
mircea_popescu: no, not because of what you believe. because of how you proceed.
justJanne: One can have an opinion different of yours.
williamdunne: No shit
mircea_popescu: actually everyone does, is the amusing thing.
justJanne: mircea_popescu: I didn't start any process.
justJanne: Someone yesterday asked what's so bad about abolishing the Nordic model.
mircea_popescu: justJanne how you proceed means "how you go about it"
justJanne: That's how the whole thing started.
mircea_popescu: the nordic model consists of being lucky, is all.
justJanne: Since then, I'm just defending the current position.
ben_vulpes: mircea_popescu: how are you even awake
mircea_popescu: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=19-05-2015#1137845 << there is your controlling counter justJanne. do you know what the scania thing references ? ☝︎

mircea_popescu: ben_vulpes i don't sleep, i wait.
ben_vulpes cowers
justJanne: Ofc I know that shit.
ben_vulpes: <justJanne> If you want total anarchy, go to somalia, they live it. << lol u and somalia
justJanne: Bit that's not the case.
williamdunne: On a similar note, I considered dunne.so and thug.so as alternative to thethug.life
mircea_popescu: what do you mean "it's not the case" ?
ben_vulpes: anyways i got magical tits runnin around i'm off
davout: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=18-05-2015#1137219 <<< volunteer firemen work for the extra cunt ☝︎
assbot: Logged on 18-05-2015 23:51:02; justJanne: because they are volunteers.
mircea_popescu: davout she's not figured that out yet.
justJanne: >_>
BingoBoingo: <justJanne> Bit that's not the case. << Why do the Greeks and Spaniards work longer hours and yet Krautenvacations are longest vacations?
mircea_popescu: "work" vs work
BingoBoingo: Luck? The benevolent ghost of the Kaiser
justJanne: davout: and what about volunteer librarians? They too?
mircea_popescu: nah, latinos mostly do c style work (figure out the least you can get away with and do less htan that).
BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: But it's all calories!
mircea_popescu: justJanne they especially.
justJanne: And volunteer garbage workers?
justJanne: They too?
mircea_popescu: you have any idea what bdsm is ?
trinque: justJanne: you cannot begin to imagine the bore of a planned out life for a male... good fucking god
trinque: seems like it sounds fantastic to you
mircea_popescu: lots of pedos volunteer to be teachers. is scarcely a proof your system works.
davout: justJanne: i don't know lol, you were talking about firemen, guess they're bored or something, but then again, you don't only see volunteer librarians in societies that "work well"
trinque: everyone has their place!
williamdunne: Some in the gutter..
justJanne: True. But it shows that people have the will and ability to do good without pay.
mircea_popescu: trinque you think it's a gender issue ? i dun think she's old enough yet.
davout: justJanne: just because you don't see what folks get out of a deal doesn't mean they're not getting anything
mircea_popescu: justJanne if it's not worth paying for it wasn't that good in the first place.
mircea_popescu: & what d said.
gribble: Error: "what" is not a valid command.
BingoBoingo: <justJanne> davout: and what about volunteer librarians? They too? << I am a librarian. Volunteering without compensation is a violation of my professional ethics.
williamdunne: Interesting, didn't realise ampersand was a gribble thing
davout: BingoBoingo: don't you get to steal a TP roll a day already?
trinque: mircea_popescu: could just as well be something taught to everyone, that risk is terrible and to be avoided
justJanne: BingoBoingo: then you'd have a hard time here, 90% of all librarians are volunteers.
mircea_popescu: gribble's a control sequence slut. CSS
mircea_popescu: trinque and yet she is here.
davout: justJanne: you underestimate the percentage of people that would do anything to merely get some social interaction, aka feel lonely
mircea_popescu: ESPECIALLY in societies that "Work well" by old woman standards.
BingoBoingo: justJanne: Seeing as the library profession here requires a graduate degree it wouldn't be sustainable here.
mircea_popescu: such as "northern countries" w/e that may mean.
justJanne: That's no issue, davout. Such immaterial payments are just what I originally meant.
trinque: so they're all already smashed into obedience, and were born there
mircea_popescu: amusingly, the only place where that model is actually sustainable is... israel.
trinque: so yeah the cell's fine whatever, sun's shining out there today
mircea_popescu: where the old woman doctrine has the nice counterpart of the freely provided fun stuff to do by the palestinians.
mircea_popescu: if those schmucks had any idea about their important place in keeping adlai happy...
mircea_popescu: justJanne do you read french ?
justJanne: Not really, I didn't take it as 3rd or 4th language in school
mircea_popescu: a, that's a pity.

davout: srsly, catching up with log, you guys have been going for like 8 hours now?
mircea_popescu: she's insatiable.
davout: haha
mircea_popescu: we're reduced to taking turns and losing sleep.
justJanne: I have no issue explaining people why removing the Nordic model would be bad.
mircea_popescu: which is thefundamental problem with manhood.
justJanne: I've slept 3h and skipped 2 lectures -.-
mircea_popescu: justJanne so far you've not considered the part where it is already collapsing on its own, bnecause it doesn't work, because it's strictly based on getting lucky.
mircea_popescu: VERY lucky.
BingoBoingo: No wonder the Greeks are taking over the EU's jools
justJanne: True.
mircea_popescu: well, you need a system that works without assumptions.
justJanne: Germany can only have a positive state household by exploiting southern Europe.
justJanne: Which is not a good thing.
mircea_popescu: sure, if you get a shitton of oil when oil's valuable / fish when fish is valuable etc, the "nordic model" is a great way to share it.
mircea_popescu: what do you do when you don't ?
williamdunne: I'm impressed with how quick shes climbing the stats
justJanne: So, like you said, we need to reduce it.
williamdunne: mircea_popescu: Share the dead bodies
mircea_popescu: williamdunne people generally don't wish to accept that nazism was absolutely unavoidable, FOR THIS REASON
justJanne: mircea_popescu: the Nordic model is possible without any valuable resources.
justJanne: As seen in places like Switzerland.
mircea_popescu: purely economic. as hitler actually pointed out : we don't have enough land to exploit. either we fight or "the way of life" has to change.
justJanne: And the solution for that was:
mircea_popescu: justJanne are you kidding ? switzerland is exploiting a resource
justJanne: High tech industry.
williamdunne: mircea_popescu when you're willing to accept that theft is okay, how many more steps is murder? Europe and the US already murders vast quantities of people in Africa
mircea_popescu: banking, mostly. but the us raped them.
justJanne: True.
mircea_popescu: williamdunne "murder". in the immortal words of butch, "if he were a better boxer he'd still be alive"
justJanne: I'll brb
mircea_popescu: justJanne don't die over b-a hon. it's eternal, will be here when you're 69, too.
williamdunne: mircea_popescu: I largely agree, Africa doesn't have much going for it but I do think it stands a chance of doing a helluva lot better without various EU/US laws.
mircea_popescu: williamdunne one of the most amusing things, to me, is that the entire "black domination" subtrend in porn is driven almost entirely by white men.
mircea_popescu: it's like... we're so far ahead of the curve, we will PRETEND to be playing all others' hands, too. because... w/e.
williamdunne: cuckold too
mircea_popescu: certainly.
williamdunne: But do you not think that without various shitty laws preventing any African from doing something other than eating dirt?
williamdunne: i.e AML bullshit, trade sanctions/restrictions etc
mircea_popescu: you vastly overrepresent their reach.
mircea_popescu: pretty much everyone in the civilised world (us and eu excluded) lives fine without ever touching those.
williamdunne: Sure, but they put someone without money at a disadvantage
williamdunne: *further
mircea_popescu: but anyway, to round off the "social marketplace" thing : if one is to reclassify slave labour as "voluntaryism", which is undoubtedly erroneous but nevertheless coherent with the presupositions proposed, then sure, i am a champion of "the northern model"
williamdunne: Don't think we all should be equal in fairyland but creating additional barriers is about the equivalent of kicking a man while he is down
mircea_popescu: williamdunne someone without money has the disadvantage of not what to spend and the advantage of not having what to protect.
williamdunne: Ofc
mircea_popescu: you ever play cards ?
williamdunne: Only in the drunken manner, not the competitive
mircea_popescu: mkay. so take poker. a very simple description of poker is that you can either play hooker or bluffer. to play hooker you need card superiority, and try to trick your opponent into paying.
mircea_popescu: to play bluffer you nbeed card inferiority, and try to trick your opponent into folding.
mircea_popescu: now, if one's afore-decided they will be bluffing, a) they won't make very good poker players and b) any hand they get can "put them at a disadvantage".
mircea_popescu: because it's not what they expected / wish to play / etc.
mircea_popescu: why should this matter ? play the fucking hand. you adjust to fit it, not the other way around.
assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 81200 @ 0.00028126 = 22.8383 BTC [-] {2}
williamdunne: In this case its more like the bluffer having to play with a different set of superiority rules
mircea_popescu: how would that work ? does being rich change thermodynamics or something ?
mircea_popescu: rich man's bridge will collapse just like poor man's bridge will.
mircea_popescu: but yes, the set of rules that control the game are different for hookers and bluffers. for hookers, the rules that control are "A > K > Q" etc.
mircea_popescu: for bluffers, "you don't get to see my cards if you fold"
mircea_popescu: so yes, different. necessarily so.
williamdunne: Sure, but I don't think it's a very controversial idea that various rules such as the AML set put entire regions of people at a disadvantage
mircea_popescu: depends in what terms.
williamdunne: Well
mircea_popescu: obviously, if you refuse to trade with putin, this puts "putin as seen through our trade with him" at a disadvantage.
mircea_popescu: but then putin turns around, alligns with china economically in exchange for support for his "regions of eurasia" political model
mircea_popescu: and you're well fucked.
williamdunne: If I want to start a business in the UK, I can pretty easily sell my product wherever the fuck I want. Banks are willing to work with me, that will be fine. If I was from random-istan not so much
mircea_popescu: or, alternatively, you discontinue support for israel and so the saudis no longer have what to fear so they dump your alliance.
mircea_popescu: no, you can't.
mircea_popescu: try this.
mircea_popescu: you can't sell in randomistan anymore than randomistan can sell in the uk.
williamdunne: Well, various African shitholes don't help themselves and won't allow foreigners to open accounts
williamdunne: But this is their own fault
mircea_popescu: ...
mircea_popescu: but you see how this is entirely you calling things names ?
williamdunne: mircea_popescu: Well yes, thats what I'm talking about but the reverse
mircea_popescu: from their pov it's backwards.
mircea_popescu: "oh, that's because uk shithole won't help itself and won't allow foreigners to whatever"
mircea_popescu: why do you think the empire's been going to shit for a century ?
williamdunne: Okay I see what you mean, but the UK needs it less
mircea_popescu: africa at least is more or less where it was in 1880.
mircea_popescu: the uk... god help it. no country in memory sunk as bad as they have.
mircea_popescu: germany's pretty much recovered, the uk will never recover.
williamdunne: Probably, then again we are largely responsible for modern socialism, so what do you expect?
williamdunne: London subsidises the rest of the country anyway
mircea_popescu: i dun expect, just putting things in perspective :)
williamdunne: Well, that was more directed at an onlooker
williamdunne: rather than you
williamdunne: But yeah
mircea_popescu: yeah they do, lmao, which is outright ridiculous. all good things are supposed to flow TO the city, not from it.
mircea_popescu: and even WITH all that huge expenditure, scotland wants more and nearly seceded.
mircea_popescu: which was one of the lulziest things i saw that year.
williamdunne: Precisely, I've been ranting far too often recently about how London should tell the rest of the UK to fuck off
williamdunne: Yes
williamdunne: I hoped they would do it
williamdunne: Remove one of the parasites
mircea_popescu: well, it can't. because the one remaining hanging nail on the historical uk is the coupla nuke subs the us allows them to keep
mircea_popescu: and they're in glasgow.
mircea_popescu: so..
mircea_popescu: just pay the dizzy sluts more :D
mircea_popescu: which you know... scotland's going to oh so judiciously use
williamdunne: I would imagine that they'd be moved to Plymouth or Bristol or summin
mircea_popescu: btw, you familiar with the hilarious history of the scottish new world settlement thing ?
williamdunne: Nope, shall I have a google?
mircea_popescu: by all means.
mircea_popescu: top keks in there.
mircea_popescu: "darien scheme"
justJanne: Meh.
justJanne: I hope the UK leaves the EU.
justJanne: It would finally kill their economy
mircea_popescu: if they leave the eu they join the us.
justJanne: As their economy right now is "European companies open an Ltd in London"
williamdunne: "Returning to Edinburgh, the Company of Scotland for Trading to Africa raised £400,000 sterling in a few weeks (equivalent to roughly £46 million today),[b] with investments from every level of society, and totaling about a fifth of the wealth of Scotland.[7][8] It was, for Scotland, a massive amount of capital.[9]"
mircea_popescu: uk as an independent state is about as ludicrous today as the kingdom of scotland was in 1715
williamdunne: justJanne: London actually matters
williamdunne: justJanne: Rest of the UK... not so much
justJanne: That's noticeable.
williamdunne: But it likely won't matter nearly as much outside of EU
mircea_popescu: only matters because it's a relative tax heaven from the patently insane french (and german) communists.
mircea_popescu: 50% my foot.
justJanne: Outside of London, the average waiting time for an ambulance is 4 hours.
justJanne: Exactly.
williamdunne: Currently if you set up a financial company in the EU, the standard procedure is London
justJanne: Wait until the UK leaves, and their tax-haven-economy breaks down.
mircea_popescu: justJanne you know i pay 3% in romania.
mircea_popescu: also eu member.
justJanne: Yes.
justJanne: See?
mircea_popescu: there is NEVER going to be a way for the bs taxation of socialists to be enforced. ever.
justJanne: The tax haven will move to Romania, or Liechtenstein.
justJanne: But London will be piss poor.
williamdunne: mircea_popescu: Wrote another article about that the other day, not too good though
williamdunne: justJanne: Yes, I agree if it leaves the EU
williamdunne: Gibraltar might be good
williamdunne: I could imagine a fair amount moving there
justJanne: Gibraltar is UK, would also leave.
mircea_popescu: might just as well move here.
justJanne: I hope the UK leaves the EU.
mircea_popescu: b,tmsro~ only charges 0.1% after all.
justJanne: So the Brits see the shit Cameron is doing.
williamdunne: justJanne: It could probably work its way in there either way, IoM for example is not EU dependent
williamdunne: justJanne: We can choose between Cameron or Labour, at least Cameron doesn't want to remove our main advantage.. being a tax haven
justJanne: Yup. FPTP sucks.
williamdunne: Proportional representation sucks worse
williamdunne: Thats how you get communists
justJanne: And?
justJanne: You also get right-wingers,
williamdunne: And I like the current availability of toilet paper
justJanne: Liberals, and communists.
justJanne: At the same time.
williamdunne: My hand might be as soft as loo roll, but its not too hygienic
justJanne: At least parliament debates are fun with all of them at once.
mircea_popescu: lol
mircea_popescu: she has a point there.
mircea_popescu: that's how the shoe incidents happen
williamdunne: Indeed
williamdunne: lol
justJanne: And more democratic, cause the government won't risk ignoring the 7% people who voted liberals, nor the 7% who voted communist, as if they'd ignore them, those parties would just start a fight in Parliament.
williamdunne: The problem is the UK is mostly shit, as we have discussed. And the shit areas would be far more likely to vote Communist

williamdunne: justJanne: Ignoring is the right action
justJanne: Nah.
mircea_popescu: depends which %.
justJanne: Let liberals and communists fight in parliament.
mircea_popescu: 99% of the 1%s you can ignore. the other 1%...
justJanne: The winner of the box fight gets to make a paw.
justJanne: *law
trinque: so you get an incomprehensible society
mircea_popescu: justJanne that there is an apparent need for new laws already invalidates the entire proposition of having a state in the first place.
mircea_popescu: either come up with a contract and stick to it, or go home.
justJanne: mircea_popescu: not really — most of the laws are adapting existing situations.
mircea_popescu: im not going for these ARM bankruptcy mortgage deals.
mircea_popescu: no.
justJanne: Yes?
mircea_popescu: either you have the whole contract written down, or i'm not signing.
mircea_popescu: and you don't get to have a state.
mircea_popescu: no parliament has the authority to make new law. ever.
justJanne: Again, if you want, you can move out.
mircea_popescu: no, you move out.
justJanne: Unless the majority is for a law.
williamdunne: If you don't move out of Germany I will rape you
mircea_popescu: i don't care if it's unanimity.
mircea_popescu: you're taking your stupid shit to somewhere not near me.
justJanne: Then the minority can decide if they want to move out or accept it.
mircea_popescu: mnope.
mircea_popescu: the majority can make sense or get lost.
justJanne: So start a rebellion.
williamdunne: In which case you get shot
mircea_popescu: and here we are.
justJanne: We'll see how it works out. Hint: it won't.
mircea_popescu: i've been in open rebellion for years now.
justJanne: Meh.
mircea_popescu: works just fine.,
mircea_popescu: and if it doesn't, fuckall and i dun care.
justJanne: Open rebellion?
justJanne: So, you don't pay taxes or anything?
williamdunne: Public in other words
justJanne: Or do you support the parliament that, according to you, never should make new laws?
williamdunne: He pays taxes to the most serene republic IIRC
mircea_popescu: justJanne http://trilema.com/2014/interacting-with-fiat-institutions-a-guide/ < start there.
williamdunne: +1
williamdunne: And then GPG contracts
williamdunne: Kinda explains the no-laws thing
williamdunne: http://trilema.com/2012/gpg-contracts/
justJanne: Ah, that kind of "I question your authority" letter.
mircea_popescu: but anyway : i, personally, pay no taxes. agents i own pay taxes in the jurisdictions i've incorporated them in, as you'd expect.
mircea_popescu: which is what the deal is.
mircea_popescu: and if the deal changes, they dissolve an' that's that.
justJanne: Ah.
justJanne: So, are you using roads? Water supply?
williamdunne: Pisses in rivers
mircea_popescu: i am buying access to anything i feel like.
justJanne: Do you use any public roads?
justJanne: I ask again.
mircea_popescu: certainly.
justJanne: Then you are committing theft.
mircea_popescu: according to whom ?
justJanne: As you stated before you aren't paying for them.
williamdunne: Retard
williamdunne: lol
mircea_popescu: are you commiting theft when those volunteer firemen come put your hair out ?
justJanne: No.
williamdunne: "Who will build the roads!11"
mircea_popescu: but you were extolling the virtues of not paying for their work a moment ago.
justJanne: But the roads in the country you live in are for you to use, in return you pay taxes.
williamdunne: If private companies can't build roads, they shouldn't exist
mircea_popescu: i don't recall signing this deal.
williamdunne: The state removed the market for them
justJanne: Ofc private companies can build roads.
justJanne: They do all the time.
williamdunne: Ok, well state enforced monopoly doesn't justify theft, no more than my ejaculate justifies rape
mircea_popescu: the notion that some govt owns the roads, seriously...
justJanne: A danish private company just builds a tunnel to Germany right now.
mircea_popescu: listen, is merkel paying you for using the public space ?
williamdunne: justJanne: Right, this is the point. We didn't choose for Gov to build roads and would pay tolls if owned by private companies
justJanne: See?
williamdunne: Well, I would
justJanne: Taxes are just tolls, too.
mircea_popescu: no.
williamdunne: No, they aren't
justJanne: Yes.
mircea_popescu: GOTTA SIGN A DEAL!11
justJanne: No.
mircea_popescu: you don't get to foist some random "law" on me.
justJanne: There are implicit deals.
mircea_popescu: you come up with a deal, if i agree you get away with it.
justJanne: Like ToS.
mircea_popescu: no such thing.
williamdunne: I click "I agree to the ToS"
justJanne: Not always.
assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 19050 @ 0.00029061 = 5.5361 BTC [+]
williamdunne: I don't click "I agree to give up 40% of my income"
mircea_popescu: there.is.no.such.thing.as."implicit".deals.
justJanne: Did you click "I agree to Freenode"'s ToS, ever?
williamdunne: I drive onto a tollroad, pay them for that
justJanne: And still you are subject to them.
mircea_popescu: justJanne listen, you agree women that dress sluttily should be fucked byu whoever feels like ?
mircea_popescu: because hey, implicit deal.
williamdunne: ^+1
mircea_popescu: they don't want the cock, they shouldn't have clicked the short skirt tos.
justJanne: Oh, THAT argument again.
mircea_popescu: we had it befoar ?
justJanne: Your argument is retarded.
williamdunne: Comparing freenode to government is a little ridiculous, don't you think?
justJanne: Please try to find another one.
mircea_popescu: looky : there are no implicit deals. ever.
justJanne: williamdunne: not really.
williamdunne: justJanne: yes, really
justJanne: How?
williamdunne: Freenode asks for nothing from me
justJanne: Yet.
williamdunne: And if they do I will move
williamdunne: If the deal changes..
justJanne: See?
williamdunne: But moving from freenode is a click
williamdunne: Not a flight, not leaving family etc
justJanne: Same with countries. If the deal changes, you can move.
williamdunne: These two things are not the same
justJanne: Moving from Freenode isn't easy either.
williamdunne: Yes it is
mircea_popescu: whoever changes the deal moves.
mircea_popescu: not he who stayed true.
justJanne: You have to convince all your peers to move, too
mircea_popescu: government wants to change the rules, IT HAS TO MOVE.
justJanne: All your friends, channels, etc.
justJanne: Or leave them behind.
williamdunne: I have to convince people to make some clicks, not hard if freenode implements a tax
justJanne: depends.
justJanne: Look at whatsapp.
justJanne: They introduced a "tax"
justJanne: And people still stayed there.
justJanne: It's a similar situation.
williamdunne: Very different userbase
trinque: the fuck whatsapp is a government now
trinque: stahhhhhp
williamdunne: Apparently
mircea_popescu: the fact that someone did something stupid does not make the stupid thing right.
justJanne: You want governments to sign contracts with all citizen, what's more realistic?
williamdunne: Apparently moving IRC servers and tos are equivalent to the violent rule of gov
mircea_popescu: and what "the people" do or don't do is no basis for either law or sense.
mircea_popescu: justJanne it's not a matter of "realistic"
justJanne: It is the only basis.
mircea_popescu: according to whom ?
justJanne: According to every not-retarded politician, ever?
mircea_popescu: the only realistic thing is to eat raw meat and dress in dead children.
mircea_popescu: nutty bs. who ever asked any politician anything for crying out loud.
justJanne: All politicians who said the opposite ended up as dictators.
williamdunne: mm kinda

mircea_popescu: what are you, going through the non sequitur book in order ?
justJanne: -.-
justJanne: Guys, please take some college courses in economy, politics, and philosophy.
mircea_popescu: "ima call anyone that doesn't promote socialism a dictator and then say that not being socialist makes dictators"
mircea_popescu: sure, it does. well done.
mircea_popescu: might as well have the same argument about believing in christ and move to 1555 to be a nun.
williamdunne: I want no leaders = dictator
justJanne: It's hard to argue with you when you ask the same questions over and over again, and just goalpost all he time
davout: justJanne: you sure have lots of stamina points
williamdunne: davout: she's burning mana for the energy regen spell
mircea_popescu: justJanne the reason it is hard to argue is because the list of places where your ideas fail is about eighteen entries long by now, and you're not directly interested in examining the holes and fixing your head, but instead would prefer us to somehow accept the nonsense.
mircea_popescu: try the other tack, it'll go a lot easier.
justJanne: There are holes, but the result still works better than any alternative.
justJanne: Again, I have no issue with your system.
justJanne: If you want, you can try it as a state.
justJanne: Declare independency, make your own laws.
williamdunne: We're already doing so
williamdunne: *Have done
williamdunne: Well
mircea_popescu: this is kinda old by now, but yes.
justJanne: We'll see in 30 years how it ends.
williamdunne: I say we, I'm not involved
mircea_popescu: if there's still a germany in 30 years, it may see how itshould behave and copy us, yes.
williamdunne: justJanne: http://thebitcoin.foundation/declaration.txt
mircea_popescu: if there isn't, a well. you're lucky enough to have come in early.
justJanne: In other news,
williamdunne: justJanne: Declaration of sovereignty
justJanne: Denmark stopped printing cash last week.
mircea_popescu: williamdunne quick : what's the difference between "Declaration of sovereignty" and "Declaration of independence" ?
justJanne: From 2017 on, Denmark plans to do everything via digital money transfers.
trinque: where's danielpbarron, it's the mark of the beast
justJanne: No matter how, or using what currency.
williamdunne: mircea_popescu: No clue, tbh
mircea_popescu: the latter recognises the sovereignty of the entity it secedes from. the former does not.
williamdunne: Ah, well I prefer the former in this case then
mircea_popescu: which is how it got to be htere.
mircea_popescu: justJanne you know i use cash almost exclusively ?
mircea_popescu: funny to do here, too, a brick is worth like 800 bucks or so.
davout: justJanne: btw, how did you end up here?
mircea_popescu: hn
williamdunne: mircea_popescu: Wondered, can you not get a lot more for your money if you pay with USD? Or would that get you shot?
justJanne: davout: discussion about RSA, tbh.
mircea_popescu: williamdunne official dollar is 8.6 pesos, unoficcial like 13.
mircea_popescu: amusingly enough, they pay like 10% less for 20 dollar bills. only want 100s.
mircea_popescu: which iirc don't even exist in the us.
williamdunne: Wait what?
mircea_popescu: yup
williamdunne: Are they official mintage or..?
mircea_popescu: yup.
williamdunne: Sorta like the £1,000,000 note in the UK I guess
justJanne: mircea_popescu: in Denmark, almost all transfers are digital anyway. As the official system is cheaper, faster, and easier than bitcoin even.
BingoBoingo: <mircea_popescu> which iirc don't even exist in the us. << 100's still exist here
mircea_popescu: and reported. i would never use it.
williamdunne: justJanne: well ofc
mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo forcing a point.
williamdunne: justJanne: bitcoin isn't that cheap or fast
williamdunne: Well, it is currently pretty cheap and fast
williamdunne: But it shouldn't be compared to centralized systems
mircea_popescu: the idea that i'd allow a third party to look into my accounts... what the fuck is this, the future ?
williamdunne: Thats just the derpery of governments
BingoBoingo: It prolly won't bee too long before they bring back 100,000 bills with the Woodrow Wilson and everything
justJanne: They aren't really centralized either.
justJanne: More like a web of hundreds of central points
mircea_popescu: that's centralized.
justJanne: While bitcoin has millions of nodes.
williamdunne: Central bank decentralized now?
justJanne: Denmark has no digital central bank — the money flows from node to node.
trinque: the point is the fucking records
justJanne: I can send money to another merchant without it ever touching a bank
trinque: not how many buildings they have
mircea_popescu: i don't think you understand what centralized-decentralized mean.
justJanne: Just because my money is only a cryptographic signature on my credit card.
williamdunne: justJanne: How is current issuance handled then? Banks trusted to issue their authorised balance?
williamdunne: I know in the UK it works with central bank reserve/payment accounts
williamdunne: Which all settlement systems are built on top of
justJanne: Kinda.
justJanne: The thing is, the reason why German debit cards don't work in any other place,
williamdunne: Just another meta layer
justJanne: Is because they store the money as a cryptographically signed transaction history on the card.
trinque: how about less this bullshit and more on the definition of centralized vs decentralized
mircea_popescu: im really curious what'll come of this.
mircea_popescu: clever chick with a head fulla stupid meets #b-a. anyone care to bet on the linecount total ? ☟︎☟︎
trinque: been all day
mircea_popescu: what is it, 1k by now ?
mircea_popescu: 545. nevertheless a record i think ?
williamdunne: From the frequency of messages don't think she even read the GPG contracts etc, let alone historical logs
justJanne: Hmm.
justJanne: I wonder how much calculation power it would take to break 4096-bit RSA.
mircea_popescu: williamdunne skimming, it's how intelligent kids end up coping with school.
mircea_popescu: horrible habit, but what are yo ugoing to do.
mircea_popescu: can't shoot the retards amirite.
williamdunne: I've been trying to break that habit, think I'm about there
justJanne: I mean, a startup in my city sells FPGA clusters that can be used for that (or for crypto mining), and the NSA bought 256 clusters, each should be enough to break AES256 in 2 weeks.
trinque: we're not gonna get a definition of centralized/decentralized
justJanne: decentralized is a system where all nodes are equal.
williamdunne: Too much effort for her to google
williamdunne: ..
justJanne: It's as easy as that.
mircea_popescu: it's not, no.
justJanne: Yes, it is.
williamdunne: Are all nodes in bitcoin equal? News to me
mircea_popescu: justJanne da fuck do you mean "yes it is".
assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 36164 @ 0.00027707 = 10.02 BTC [-]
mircea_popescu: what do you take yourself for, some sort of equal or something ?
justJanne: Any homogenous graph is decentralized.
mircea_popescu: that's true for graphs.
justJanne: Every web of nodes is just a graph.
mircea_popescu: but in graph theory, decentralized is a term of art.
mircea_popescu: no, it's not. because the map is not the territory.
justJanne: A web of nodes is a graph, as a graph, per definition, is just a set of nodes, and a set of relations between nodes.
mircea_popescu: do you understand what "the map is not the territory" means ?
trinque: what's the command structure of the society within which your decentralized banks operate?
justJanne: The banks aren't either fully centralized, nor fully decentralized. Anyone can just open a bank, the question is if other banks will accept money from your customers as payment, as they don't know if they can trust your cryptographic signature.
trinque: the fuck is this where they're both or neither
williamdunne: "anyone can just open a bank" < or rly?
justJanne: It's the same as minimum and smallest, two completely different definitions.
mircea_popescu: so what is "Danmarks Nationalbank" then ?
justJanne: I'm currently talking about northern Germany, as I don't know the internals of Denmark, it's the same, though.
justJanne: There is a difference between the printed money and and the way digital money works.
trinque: the whole EU sounds like what they do in portland tech companies
trinque: where everyone smiles and no one's like, your boss, man
justJanne: GeldKarte is one example.
mircea_popescu: you don't know but it's the same ?
justJanne: Person A can pay person B, person B can pay person C
trinque: the banks are totally decentralized because they've got various sub-departments of some huge central authority
justJanne: All this while they are completely offline.
mircea_popescu: trinque depends who's describing it ya know ?
justJanne: Okay, again, please listen.
trinque: of course
trinque: mircea_popescu: ^
justJanne: Imagine we have 3 people, completely offline.
mircea_popescu: okay.
justJanne: A pays person B money.
justJanne: Person B pays person C money.
justJanne: (All through GeldKarte)
mircea_popescu: which is offline throughout.
justJanne: yes.
mircea_popescu: go on.
justJanne: Person C now goes online and can spend the money.
mircea_popescu: what happens in the following scenario :
justJanne: You can transfer money offline, and it is valid.
mircea_popescu: b has no money. a gives him 100 moneys. b sends 100 money to C and 100 money to D.
mircea_popescu: can c and d each now spend 100 ?
justJanne: No.
mircea_popescu: because ?
justJanne: They can't spend anything, as the last two statements are invalid.
justJanne: You have at the beginning 0 money.
mircea_popescu: show, don't tell.
williamdunne: Thats pretty impractical
justJanne: Your card stores a list of cryptographically signed money from the sender.
justJanne: So, I send you money, by sending you a cryptographically signed info "I sent you n money"
mircea_popescu: justJanne yes. so i copy that list and send money to 500 people
justJanne: You can't.
mircea_popescu: because why not ?
justJanne: Copying is prevented through unique salts for each transaction.
mircea_popescu: derp.
mircea_popescu: if i can send money to either a or b
mircea_popescu: then necessarily i can send to both. so i do. what now.
punkman: justJanne: I mean, a startup in my city sells FPGA clusters that can be used for that (or for crypto mining), and the NSA bought 256 clusters, each should be enough to break AES256 in 2 weeks. << lolwut
justJanne: Then the last person receiving it won't be able to use it.
mircea_popescu: i'll tell you what now : whoever gets first online spends it.
williamdunne: justJanne: Do you have a paper or something for this?
punkman: GeldKarte > "This system is protected against double-spending by not allowing the user to read the keys from their smart card."
mircea_popescu: the other fails, the bank gets alerted that this was copied and the police shows up
mircea_popescu: denmark has got a stupid, centralist bitcoin.
justJanne: Yup.
justJanne: It existed 10 years before bitcoin, though.
williamdunne: Oh
mircea_popescu: it will never work. the only reason its not being raped wide open is because atm nobody gives a shit about swine country.
williamdunne: Nevermind, I'll ignore the paper that is derpy

williamdunne: Can you use this card for luxury purchases?
punkman: " Funds cannot move freely within the system. They can move from a bank account (or cash) to a Geldkarte. From there, they can only be moved to a merchant's card and from the merchant's card, they can only go to the merchant's bank account."
mircea_popescu: punkman because this can be done now.
justJanne: that's an old article then.
williamdunne: i.e cars, jewellery etc
justJanne: Or it was a different system.
justJanne: Because we have so many different debit card companies >_>
mircea_popescu: justJanne odds are you just had a superificial understanding of it.
williamdunne: Which surely rely on banks
justJanne: GeldKarte, EC Karte, etc.
justJanne: so, williamdunne, your question:

justJanne: You pay like 6% more.

justJanne: Already happening.
justJanne: Germany has a child per family rate of 1.4
mircea_popescu: interesting.
justJanne: So far below the replacement rate of 2.25
justJanne: All the Nordics have 1.4, too
mircea_popescu: clearly the system works and is sustainable.
justJanne: Automatically shrinking the population to a point where it is sustainable.
mircea_popescu: perhaps.
williamdunne: Yes, plenty of children to pay for their communist parents

mircea_popescu: prolly 100k by now ?
chetty: ouch, you makes me squirm
justJanne: Not really.
justJanne: Almost no immigration since then.
justJanne: The largest wave of immigration was in the 70s and 80s
justJanne: So, 24 thousand immigrants are mutilated.
justJanne: And we pay them free healthcare to fix it.
williamdunne: How do you fix it?
mircea_popescu: o you're gonna fix it ?
mircea_popescu: damn i like the nordic model more and more
mircea_popescu: williamdunne shut up they're fixing it.
justJanne: That's no a problem.
williamdunne: Sorry Charles about hacking your head off, I'll stitch it back on in just a jiffy! Universal healthcare ftw
mircea_popescu: chetty imagine, that's like a quarter ton of bits ?
justJanne: Ofc it is shit.
mircea_popescu: justJanne maybe it's good for you, how do you know ?
mircea_popescu: i thought all people should have equal chances.
justJanne: But again, those are immigrants — they moved here decades after they were mutilated.
mircea_popescu: and you know this the same way it was 0, right ?
justJanne: No.
justJanne: But I know this because your quote and your article say it.
justJanne: People, immigrants, from African countries, who got mutilated and then moved here
justJanne: So no, it's not a German issue. We still try to do our best to fix the mistakes someone else did.
davout: the logs are soon going to be harder to catch up on than the very fucking blockchain

davout: well, adoption is on the rise, so what can i say
mircea_popescu: how are these migrants any worse than you ?
mircea_popescu: maybe you should try the mutilation thing.
williamdunne: Socialism to me does seem a lot like the "no kid left behind" school bullshit that appeals to the lowest common denominator and lowers the median
justJanne: You got it wrong.
mircea_popescu: in any case the poor girls without the bits can't grow them back up, so in order for everyone to have equal chances at an orgasm, off with your clit!
justJanne: It lowers the average, but increases the median
mircea_popescu: and because the government can alter the deal, here, it's a new law now.
mircea_popescu: enjoy socialism!
williamdunne: justJanne: Median is average
justJanne: No.
justJanne: Average is the sum divided by the amount.
mircea_popescu: she has a point. it does lower the average but increase the median
mircea_popescu: which is EXACTLY what the problem is.
justJanne: Median is the middle person.
mircea_popescu: places with high medians are places not worth living in.
justJanne: That's what you think.
mircea_popescu: the entire point of life is diferentiation from the median.
mircea_popescu: of course it is, that's why i say it.
justJanne: I think places with low median aren't worth living in.
williamdunne: http://www.purplemath.com/modules/meanmode.htm
mircea_popescu: the difference being that this isn't what you think,
mircea_popescu: just what you've been told to think.
justJanne: williamdunne: please take stochastics 101 at a university,
justJanne: You'll know what mean and average are.
mircea_popescu: stochastics 101 o.O ?!
mircea_popescu: this actually is a thing ?!
williamdunne: Sounds like a musician "Stoch"
justJanne: Introduction into stochastic, yeah.
williamdunne: And he's German most likely
williamdunne: So it fits
justJanne: Theoretical statistics.
mircea_popescu: but this in physics ? as in, stochastics mechanics ?
mircea_popescu: oh.
justJanne: No.
williamdunne: "Did you see Stoch's latest concert? It was Stochastic!"
mircea_popescu: so statistics 101 ?
justJanne: No.
justJanne: Statistics is different.
mircea_popescu: can you link the course ?
justJanne: I'm on mobile, sadly no.
justJanne: Also, it would be in German anyway.
mircea_popescu: !s kiel

mircea_popescu: http://www.math.uni-kiel.de/numerik/kallsen/lehre/ss-2015/sem-sto-finmath/sem-sto-finmath.php this ?
justJanne: Nah.
justJanne: That's a master module.
mircea_popescu: ikr ?
justJanne: Uni Köln has a nice transcript.
justJanne: The mathematicians in Kiel still refuse to use calculators or computers.
mircea_popescu: i thought you went to kiel.
justJanne: I do.
justJanne: But Kiel's mathematicians refuse to put anything on the public web.
justJanne: You can get it if you are in their intranet, though.
mircea_popescu: lol
williamdunne: setup a proxy to the intranet
justJanne: They have.
williamdunne: No a public one
justJanne: Nope.
mircea_popescu: what, you want her to end up in aaron schwartz's cell ?
justJanne: As access to the intranet is bound through X.509 to a user account
williamdunne: A university dedicate to not sharing information, not very socialist of them
justJanne: Anyway, we are going way off topic.
williamdunne: Yes, we should be discussing bitcoin assets
davout: justJanne: for like 12 hours now...
justJanne: Not that far.
mircea_popescu: speaking of the broke ass pki, http://blog.trendmicro.com/trendlabs-security-intelligence/a-look-at-the-gnutls-x-509-verification-code-flaw/
justJanne: Anyway, why are we still arguing? I said I have no issue with you trying to build your state system, I just don't believe it will last, and you guys spending 14h trying to convince me the system I like most is shit.
mircea_popescu: the problem isn't that we're going "off topic", as there isn't a topic. the problem is that you very badly suck at most verbal and cognitive tasks. but hopefully we've run the gamut by now.
chetty: I havent read the whole log but I am curious, is anyone trying to convince, or just stating facts?
justJanne: Mostly stating facts.
davout: *ahem*
justJanne: Mostly.
mircea_popescu: most of the discussion flows as "comonly held belief 1" "why" "because 2" "why" "because 3" why" "because 1.1" etc
mircea_popescu: anyway, nothing a summer's worth of lurk moar can't fix.
justJanne: The largest issue is that many people discussed with me, each having different opinions. ☟︎
williamdunne: Thats what happens when you talk to a group of people
mircea_popescu: we suck at being a cult.
justJanne: And combined, these people's opinions would cancel each other our.
justJanne: *out
mircea_popescu: is it ?
williamdunne: Ey?
justJanne: Yes.
trinque: we are all different forces on different vectors and we cancel out?
justJanne: Some people said, before, people should be held responsible for the decisions of their ancestors, they can even be punished for them.
justJanne: Some others said taxes are bad, because you personally aren't responsible for them.
justJanne: Combined, the statements are nuts.
williamdunne: Some people said, before, people should be held responsible for the decisions of their ancestors, they can even be punished for them. <<< who actually said this, I'm curious about the justification
mircea_popescu: justJanne the impression you get comes from you observing what's being said with too broad a brush.
justJanne: williamdunne: it was used as defense against my argument that "children should have equal chances, no matter if their parents are poor or rich"
mircea_popescu: for instance, i didn't say people should be punished for what ancestors did. you conflated two statements : 1) that you can't expect me to pay for the poor behaviour of one's ancestors and 2) that i punish people by what they are rather than they wish to be.
williamdunne: What was the actual answer, because not giving them equal chances is very different
justJanne: Because I said "people aren't responsible for the actions of their ancestors"
mircea_popescu: these have precise and rather subtle meanings, is all.
justJanne: So, people should be held responsible for the actions of their ancestors.
williamdunne: Yeah thats what I expected
williamdunne: No
mircea_popescu: there's a difference between punishment and responsibility.
justJanne: But they shouldn't.
mircea_popescu: moreover, the situation where you're poor because daddy was a drunk is neither your punishment nor your responsibility.
mircea_popescu: it is, merely, YOUR SITUATION.
mircea_popescu: improve it and that's that.
williamdunne: We're not all equal, but I don't want to make it worse for you
justJanne: Okay, so, mircea_popescu, taxes are the same
mircea_popescu: the same needs two operands.
justJanne: The situation that you live in a place with taxes is neither your punishment nor you'd responsibility.
justJanne: It is, merely, Your situation.
williamdunne: Yes it is
mircea_popescu: i don't live in a place owned by someone else.
williamdunne: Its a punishment
williamdunne: Its an active force
justJanne: How so?
mircea_popescu: what do you mean "how" ?
williamdunne: If you don't pay someone rapes you
justJanne: Where is the difference between having to pay the debts of your parents
williamdunne: If you're poor.. you can't do something, but nothing actually happens
justJanne: And having to pay taxes.
williamdunne: Who says you pay your parents debt?
mircea_popescu: the debts of your parents is a novel development, wasn't discussed before.
justJanne: It is part of the poor debate.
mircea_popescu: apparently it's not.
williamdunne: No it isn't, no one should inherit debt
justJanne: May those debts be monetary, or indirect.
mircea_popescu: you don't get to call any negative number "a debt"
justJanne: williamdunne: and what is with indirect debt?
mircea_popescu: the word has a specific meaning.
williamdunne: What are we calling indirect debt?
justJanne: When your parents are so piss poor you have to work as a child to not starve.
williamdunne: Thats a lack of a think
williamdunne: Debt is a thing you have
williamdunne: Not a lack of a thing
justJanne: Debt is a responsibility of having to pay, yes.
justJanne: But for the person, it is the same.
williamdunne: No, it isn't
mircea_popescu: so a bottle and a penis are, for a flatworm, "the same"
mircea_popescu: doesn't mean you can run around sticking bottles up your ass. ☟︎
justJanne: Okay, back then.
chetty: <justJanne> When your parents are so piss poor you have to work as a child to not starve.// some might consider that an advantage
justJanne: If you think so.
justJanne: Thing is, of you have to work and can't go to school,
justJanne: You lose something due to the bad choices of your parents.
williamdunne: Did me good
mircea_popescu: justJanne you lose something, gain something else.
justJanne: williamdunne: it shows. It shows very much.
mircea_popescu: that's the way it goes. if you have children, you lose your juvenile figure.
mircea_popescu: if you don't, you don't have children.
justJanne: It's not the same.
justJanne: The question here is:
justJanne: Why is inheriting debts different?
justJanne: You said inheriting debts shouldn't be a thing.
mircea_popescu: because debt flows from a contrat.
justJanne: But inheriting money is okay?
mircea_popescu: and a contract can only be enforced by its parties.
williamdunne: Yes
mircea_popescu: what problem do you see with it ?
trinque: also a contract
justJanne: And what about inheriting stocks?
williamdunne: No one enforces inheritance, its not a contract
williamdunne: give it away
williamdunne: justJanne: Stocks with liability?
mircea_popescu: stocks don't carry liability, nor have they ever.
justJanne: Most stocks are a contract saying that you pay money, in return get a part of the profits and the power over a company.
justJanne: But the contract is specifically signed to you.
mircea_popescu: no. stocks are a contract saying that you PAID money,
mircea_popescu: and forevermore get a share of the company.
justJanne: Yes.
williamdunne: derp on my part
justJanne: But the contract is again bound to you.
mircea_popescu: they are negotiable instruments, just like any other.
justJanne: So, the question is, should inheriting these contracts be possible?
mircea_popescu: the contract is not inherited.
mircea_popescu: it is conveyed.
justJanne: And if yes, why are they so different from debt contracts?
williamdunne: Liability
justJanne: And what about inverse debt?
justJanne: You lend someone money. You die.
mircea_popescu perceives the deep, faint marks of ancient saxon legal strictures in the girl's attempt.
justJanne: Can your children force the person to pay?
mircea_popescu: fascinating what cultural nationality turns out to be.
mircea_popescu: justJanne depends how the contract was worded.
mircea_popescu: is it assignable ? have you assigned it to them ?
justJanne: So, then debt is only inheritable in some cases?
mircea_popescu: debt is never inheritable.
justJanne: This creates an issue with williamdunne's comment.
justJanne: Because either contracts are inheritable, or they are not.
williamdunne: justJanne: No it doesn't, you know I meant debt as if in the liability not the asset
mircea_popescu: the fact that i convey a claim against you to him does not mean he inherited it from me.
mircea_popescu: it merely means i conveyed it to him.
justJanne: Debt as a liability and debt as an asset have to be treated the same.
williamdunne: No, they don't
mircea_popescu: i'm not even sure what that aims to mean.
justJanne: So, again,
justJanne: We have a contract between two parties.
mircea_popescu: right.
justJanne: One party can give the contract to another person,
justJanne: But the other party is always bound to it?
justJanne: That sounds very unfair.
mircea_popescu: if the contract is so phrased, yes.
mircea_popescu: hey, lex pacta. you can make a contract say whatever you wish it to say
justJanne: No, you can't.
mircea_popescu: the counterpart being that you can never impose a contract on anyone.
justJanne: If the contract is worded so that it provides and obvious disadvantage for one party, it is void.
mircea_popescu: well obviously i can.
mircea_popescu: not here.
justJanne: In most of the world, yes.
justJanne: For good reason.
mircea_popescu: irrelevant.
justJanne: No.
williamdunne: Yes.
mircea_popescu: in most of the world (defined as africa), females must have their bits cut off.
trinque: dear god europe allows "it's not fair" to dissolve contracts?
mircea_popescu: so what of it. the most of the world can go hang.

justJanne: Anyway,
justJanne: Interestingly, you should read about the veil of ignorance.
justJanne: It's a nice thought experiment.
mircea_popescu: justJanne "most of society" that gets a voice, which is bored women.
justJanne: And, interestingly, this thought experiment almost always ends in the Nordic model.
justJanne: The thought experiment is:
mircea_popescu: you seriously contemplate teh notion i'm not aware of "veil of ignorance" etc ?
justJanne: Oh, cool.
justJanne: So, assuming this experiment, how can you be for an anarchist society,
justJanne: When you yourself might end up a piss poor person?
mircea_popescu: you think i care ?
williamdunne: I'm not familiar, give me a mo'
justJanne: Okay:
williamdunne: When you yourself might end up a piss poor person? << being well off isn't left to chance
mircea_popescu: i built more fortunes thjan you had boyfriends to date
mircea_popescu: and burned just as many.
mircea_popescu: being poor is only a problem if you belong there. otherwise, it's like being dirty.
mircea_popescu: washes right off.
justJanne: How would you design a society, assuming you have to live in it later, you can be any person in it, it is random.
mircea_popescu: i don't believe in this cultural warfare bs.
williamdunne: justJanne: Everyone executed except the rich
mircea_popescu: people are not "random", leaves in the wind at the mercy of 1984-esque government.
justJanne: Of course most people end up designing a society where everyone has enough to live, but also has chance to become rich.
mircea_popescu: you don't follow the important point.
justJanne: Which is the Nordic model.
mircea_popescu: again : people are not rootless, leaves in the wind of "society".
mircea_popescu: to propose that you can randomly switch people around as if they were interchangeable parts is already to introduce socialism as a given
mircea_popescu: socialism is not only not a given, it is the system of organised stupidity.
mircea_popescu: and no matter what happens, you can't be me. maybe being you is still cool and worth being. maybe it isn't.
mircea_popescu: if it isn't your'e fucked, because that's what you'll ever be.
justJanne: The idea is to create a society where every person has an acceptable life.
mircea_popescu: that idea is about on par with "i wonder if superman could beat batman"
mircea_popescu: idle masturbation for the infantile mind.
justJanne: The difference is, it works.
mircea_popescu: like collodial silver works :
williamdunne: mircea_popescu: Thats actually becoming a film I think

justJanne: Take for example my father, no money, piss poor. Would have had no money for studying. But also not able to work heavy work.
justJanne: Thanks to free education, he studied law.
williamdunne: justJanne: Don't mistake this for being a channel where everyone had rich parents
justJanne: Without free education, he couldn't have ever afforded it.
mircea_popescu: justJanne so he studied law and you still need the state to put you through college ?
mircea_popescu: apparently with education he never got very far ?
williamdunne: Too many lawyers, education diluted the market I'm guessing
mircea_popescu: williamdunne nah, in germany being a lawyer is like being a clerk.
justJanne: No, the issue is a different one.
mircea_popescu: they make jack shit.
mircea_popescu: none of that 10mn / year + benefits.
williamdunne: Gender Studies a better option?
justJanne: Also, there are different kinds of lawyers.
mircea_popescu: williamdunne socialism, so: everything an equally shitty option, but
justJanne: There are also corporal lawyers working in companies writing legal terms for contracts all day long.
mircea_popescu: "hey, be thankful for the little you get" and all that jazz.
mircea_popescu: justJanne corporate.
williamdunne: It’s not an endlessly expanding list of rights — the ‘right’ to education, the ‘right’ to health care, the ‘right’ to food and housing. That’s not freedom, that’s dependency. Those aren’t rights, those are the rations of slavery — hay and a barn for human cattle.
justJanne: He could have worked as legal attorney,
justJanne: But he preferred the stable job in a company over the risk of having to depend on clients.
mircea_popescu: heh.
mircea_popescu: well, don't you think he should be ashamed of himself, in front of you ?
justJanne: Nah.
mircea_popescu: other people's dads did a lot better, unlike his lazy ass.
justJanne: He did the right thing.
mircea_popescu: i'd hold him up to task.
davout: aaand we broke 1000
mircea_popescu: you wanna be ~my~ father, you shoulda done a shitload better than this stupid shit.
williamdunne: Being risk averse isn't a good idea generally speaking, if you want to be succeeding at anything.
justJanne: Being risk averse is a very stable solution, though.
mircea_popescu: i can't stand it in people, and especially not in men. imagine the unbearable conversation of someone who prefers the stability of bureaucratism and "not having to depend on clients"
mircea_popescu: aka im too lazy to do a good job.
williamdunne: 'Conversation'
justJanne: This is Germany. The place where people will wait at an empty crosswalk at 3am on Sunday.

justJanne: Yes.
williamdunne: Its sort of not invented but pretty much inherent to humans
mircea_popescu: gravity is also a thing invented by people.
williamdunne: Hence why the Indians die and Europeans rule the world
justJanne: No.
mircea_popescu: doesn't mean rocks didn't fall before, but it does mean it wasn't called gravity.

mircea_popescu: right.

justJanne: No.
justJanne: Money is invented just like laws, or countriez
mircea_popescu: but other than that, money was invented and reinvented by people, most recently being called bitcoin.

williamdunne: justJanne: When it comes to it, the German soldiers will either massacre civilians or execute gov officials
williamdunne: But considering who pays their salaries..
mircea_popescu: Sergeant Patrick Swanton, a spokesman for the Waco Police Department, called the attendees. “A bunch of criminal element biker members that came to Waco and tried to instill violence into our community and unfortunately did just that…. This is not a bunch of doctors and dentists and lawyers riding Harleys. These are criminals on Harley-Davidsons.”
mircea_popescu: no further professions allowed in the ussa.
mircea_popescu: be a doctor, lawyer or a dentist. or fuck you.
mircea_popescu: sucks that most of the kids are online geeks / webexperts i guess.
williamdunne: Thats pretty meta - isn't it. Sergeant is on the list of criminals
mircea_popescu: Sergeant Swanton said, “What occurred here today is the worst-case scenario when a business owner puts profit over human lives. It’s sad. This could have all been avoided.”
mircea_popescu: ahahaha "Waco police claim the violence could have prevented if Jay Patel, the operating partner at the independently owned Waco franchise, had simply banned the Confederation of Clubs from meeting there"
mircea_popescu: dude that country's so fucked...
williamdunne: Its not even that country, I'm pretty sure the same would be said elsewhere in fairness
williamdunne: But yeah thats pretty fucked
mircea_popescu: eslewhere where, in the "democratic" republic of germany ? (following kruschev's revelation on stalin!)
mircea_popescu: Since the massacre, police have announced that there is “credible information about threats toward law enforcement.” Waco police issued a bulletin at 10:13 Sunday night that announced: “Our agency has recieved (sic) information that the Cosaks (sic) and Banditos (sic) have issued an order to kill anyone in uniform.”

decimation: mircea seems to credit the german geography for why 'nordic freedom' 'seems to work'. but I suggest it is the people themselves - having been beaten by the romans for centuries, and then forced by the church to mate outside their immediate family, they developed a concept of 'kinship' beyond L2 cousins ☟︎
decimation: anyway, back to the mines for me

decimation: ascii_field: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817151097 < fanless 400 watt ATX supply
asciilifeform: !up ascii_field
decimation: http://www.jonnyguru.com/modules.php?name=NDReviews&op=Story4&reid=200 < teardown
ascii_field: decimation: from my experience, these 'fanless' things invariably rely on -some- case fan being present
decimation: yeah, it would be interesting to try it out
ascii_field: a gadget which has no 'hedgehog' open to room air is a nonstarter for true fanlessness
ascii_field: just from examination by naked eye.
decimation: maybe. http://seasonicusa.com/NEW_X-series_Fanless.htm < it appears to come with a 5 year warranty, so you can exchange it if it burns out
ascii_field: can i also exchange the downstream devices it will nuke when it does? l0l
decimation: heh
decimation: usually power supplies don't nuke the downstream stuff, but it can happen
decimation: especially if it undervolts
ascii_field: decimation: some years ago, i purchased a 'fanless' ps and discovered, to my grief, that a number of misc. components on the (cpu water-cooled) mb relied on having -some- airflow

decimation: yeah, they don't put that in the spec, but who knows. if the supply is really efficient, it ought not generate much heat
ascii_field: voltage regulators, fets, various logic
ascii_field: on mb proper
kakobrekla: i dun have a fanless seasonic but it has its fan off most of the time
kakobrekla: even when it goes on, dun hear it really
ascii_field: kakobrekla: how often is 'most' ?
kakobrekla: unless i start gayming
ascii_field: i've seen systems like this, but, sadly, nothing with amd (nor do i expect to. they're 'frying pans.')
kakobrekla: 'Seasonic P-760'
ascii_field: kakobrekla: aha but what is it plugged into
kakobrekla: 230v mains
ascii_field: -other- end
kakobrekla: 4770K, 32gig, amd r9 280x, a few ssds
ascii_field: aha so intel box.

jurov pets ben_vulpes

jurov: !s sidechains
assbot: 36 results for 'sidechains' : http://s.b-a.link/?q=sidechains
jurov: or if it's meant for misc data, then it's done by deedbot already
jurov: smells like something a patent troll could put together
williamdunne: Its like sidechains but doesn't require a fork
williamdunne: Stores hashes of the blocks in the bitcoin blockchain
williamdunne: So kinda like deedbot in a way
jurov: oh i wanted to ask, did you think about prevention of resubmitting same clearsigned text many times?
trinque: who me?
jurov: trinque ^
trinque: I'll negrate people who abuse it ☟︎
trinque: aside that nah, if it's signed by L1 or L2 it goes out
jurov: um. with email submission, i don't even know
jurov: it already does SHA sum of whole clearsigned text, but comment can be changed so this is useless
trinque: hm?
jurov: you know clearsigned text has modifiable comment line?
trinque: yeah so?
trinque: either somebody produces the original text of the thing or deedbot has nothing to say about it
jurov: if someone uses temporary voice to resubmit existing deed 1000 times, deedbot has nothing to say about it? ☟︎

jurov: since you're paranoid enough to have a whitelist of sources, i thought you thought about that
trinque: jurov: couldn't remember so I went and looked
ben_vulpes: > blue text in email
ben_vulpes: > sender confirmed for msexchange user
trinque: it will do a crappy check against the json api to see if the nick plonking in a deed is trusted, however, I don't know of an api that gives whether the nick on IRC is authenticated
trinque: so it could be improved
trinque: if there's a URL for that it'd be trivial to add
jurov: i decided to make sha1sums of decrypted text (and in future check them for duplicity)

jurov: pity that gpg offers no facilities to distinguish signatures except for date
trinque: afaik using a deedbot against the blockchain is the only actually verifiable way of timestamping data that exists
jurov: yes but i'm not about timestamping. i'm about checking if two clearsigned files are identical

asciilifeform: aha
asciilifeform: why would we expect a meaningful difference in performance between 1 and 2 ?
jurov: it's the nubbins` tax patch
asciilifeform: l0l
asciilifeform: ben_vulpes: one good test is to hard-config all 3 to connect exclusively to same (fully-synced) node
