    It does not matter how many times you repeat an erroneous statement, it does not become true.

    Anything repeated enough becomes the truth.

    Truth is not an attribute. It is merely a perception of those who care enough.

    Mobility is infinitely more important than equality.

    Mobility is mostly psychological. Anyone can adopt better belief systems and do better in life.

    The very idea of equality is philosophically perverse. Besides, somebody is always more equal than others.

    In the eyes of the law everyone is equal. In the eyes of the individual, maybe not so equal.

    People with more money can always buy more or better legal representation.

    Moreover, actions of institutions are invariably carried out by individuals.

    I am definitely a neoliberal.

    People must not strive to get even, they should work to do better.

    Why should anyone work if he cannot become privileged? There needs to be a reward for being successful. It is the natural/evolutionary thing to do.

    I too am a liberal!

    1. I am agnostic (okay, may be slightly Pastafarian)
    2. I support the idea of a single-payer healthcare system
    3. I am pro-choice
    4. I strongly support same-sex marriages
    5. I favor legalization of drugs

    I do not believe in high death taxes because I want the heirs to squander their wealth so regular people like us can make money off them.

    I used to support free education. Now I only support free online education. The idea of public schooling is outdated. Besides, we do not want too many over-educated losers.

    I am not against alternative energy, but fossil fuel will be the mainstay for a long time.

    What if the market takes out the all-time high before correcting 20%?

    It's possible. It might even make a new high in November and crash in December.

    However that would put some serious stress on my bubble model.

    I also think there will be another bubble. Stocks do not take long to go down anyway. Fear is 3X stronger than greed.

    I doubt the market will make a big move during the holiday season. People are off enjoying themselves. There is also seasonal bullishness.

    Why do you think those who can afford it (in single payer countries) pay out of pocket to get real medical care.

    And there should be a private system for those who can afford it. Problem solved.

    Fear is going away. VIX futures are now back in contango.

    Obamacare is not ideal but it is a step in the right direction. A single-payer system would make more sense, but I doubt it is achievable in the foreseeable future.

    National debt is not necessarily a bad thing especially when other countries are in worse shape.

  • On 20 Oct 2014 in I'm going to play video games all day instead of working, Peter P said:

    I haven't played games for ages. We bought a PlayStation (version 1) and played that for a month. Years later, we got an Xbox (original) and that lasted a week.

    Used to like the classic SimCity though.

    FortWayne says

    Can a man opt out to be a stay home dad? No.

    Why not? Of course a man can choose to stay home.

    That way it will also be much easier for the man to be served with the divorce papers that will soon be hand-delivered on his doorstep. It's a win-win situation, I tell you.

    You guys are exaggerating. Men's pride tend to be more hurt by staying at home than women's. :-)

    ...pretending is that somehow women are oppressed...

    They also think many categories of people are somehow "oppressed." In short, they worship weakness. This is the most dangerous part.

    Ideas like income equality and gender equality are equally perverse.

    People should be inspired to become strong characters.

    We really should liberate women. First step, they must not think of themselves as victims.

    I am a feminist and I do not support gender equality.

    I don't want obedient women. I just want those who don't need obedient men.

  • On 17 Oct 2014 in Equal Rights For Women Now!, Peter P said:

    I am a feminist. I supported women's groups in college. In particular, I want women to be independent and they should pursue whatever dreams they might have.

    However, I do not support gender equality because the very idea of equality is perverse. No two things are ever equal.

    Patrick says

    Since every fetus is equally the responsibility of a man, that man should have an equal say in any abortion.

    This I cannot support. Abortion ought to be a fundamental right requiring no approval whatsoever. No one should be able to veto an abortion.

    Patrick says

    There should be no separate bathrooms for women, nor any separate facilities ever.

    Problem is that women will take over all bathroom stalls when demand arises. I enjoy my "express line" and I do not object to having separate bathrooms.

    My pet peeve: single-stall gender specific bathrooms. They should be outlawed.
