RuneScape Information

  1. It's 6:15AM now. I'm going to finally sleep. All I want to say is that you should be able to do whatever you want if it isn't hurting somebody else or damaging/taking away their property. And that you shouldn't have to do things or give things unless you want too or you owe them/it's in the contract etc..
  2. Not only does Linux happen to be the standard for servers and supercomputers, but Linux is like public school in the way that everyone contributes for the benefit of everyone, and Windows' development is privately funded. That analogy doesn't really work. I'm not really sure which you think is better, but the quality of education in different types (Public or private) varies so much from country to country that you can't really say that; Finland's education is among the best in the world, and is almost exclusively public. Cost is almost always proportional to quality, especially in schools. Less cost, less teachers, less material, less electives... Yes but if the school cost less.. but had less quality then most people wouldn't pick that school and it would go out of business. Finland's education is very different to the public schools of the US and America. In America you go to a school they pick and the money isn't attached to the child unlike a lot of European countries.
  3. The form of government you purpose is extremely inefficient, but that is another point. Are you seriously telling me that paying taxes is not good? You think all the services available to you are not paid by the taxes? Just how do you think roads and school are been built? Also no, public service is not a monopoly. I get these services by paying taxes. Which is like being forced by a company to shop their and only there.. or go to jail. If there was no government then I would be getting the services I want from competing businesses. If they fail they are shutdown so they have to actually succeed to stay in business, unlike the government.. I think I already demonstrated the fact that paying taxes is called obeying the law, there is a difference. Also no, you do not receive these services by paying taxes, you receive these services because EVERYONE pays taxes. There is only so much resources one person can utilize. If everything was run by competing businesses, then we would have a country run by the rich. Monopolies would form because there is no government regulation, environment would be destroyed because there is no government regulation, interest rates on loans would be butt load high, because guess what? There is no government regulation. The services you use every day would be much more expensive because the monopolies charge ridiculous amount of money or guess what? There will be no police, no libraries, no courts, etc etc unless you freaking pay for them. Do you see now why having everything run by competing businesses even in a competitive market is a really bad thing? Enforcing the law, otherwise known as police work/station. The less of the resources the higher the price and the more willingness for them to conserve it. Everything you said is a bunch of cliches. Why exactly would there be monopilies? If you can't force competing businesses out of the market then the ones at the top got there by making the best product or having the best service for the lowest price. Prices are based on supply and demand. If a company wanted to sell a hamburger for $30 then another company would come in and start selling it for $20.. and then so on until it is the lowest price that is still profitable. There would be police. You might pay to live in a neighborhood which has private security or defend yourself. Why would there be no libraries or courts? Every single thing can be payed for.. nothing is free. Oh because we have a perfect system right now..
  4. And anybody can go to Linux instead of windows but more people use windows.. it's the standard. I was at a private school for half of my school life and the other half was at a public school. I know what is better.. but if private (or home) school was the only option then there would be more private schools which would mean more competition equaling lower costs and better quality. At the moment a lot of private schools are here for parents who want religion at school. If it was all private there would be a lot more different types and you wouldn't have to go to one school just because you live in that area.
  5. Name one thing no private business can't do as good as the government.

  7. Yes I do. Any service the government tries to do the private sector can do better.
  8. I believe in voluntarism.. which is basically anarcho-capialism. What have I said that makes me sound like I think stealing isn't wrong? The first thing I stated was that stealing is wrong.. Only I can say what is for my own good. And only you can say what is good for you.. "Public" services are just monopolies.
  9. That's physical.. it's a natural law. You can't change that. If I follow the only law that I believe in then I'm not hurting anybody.. therefore it's a victimless crime.
  10. You want something you pay for it, ask for it or make it. You don't just take it away from them.. Or just got lick the boots of some bureaucrat and follow the lynch mob as they enslave anybody who doesn't want what they want.
  11. I own myself and have no leader. How do they have my permission? One person stealing from one person is as wrong as a million people stealing from one person.. it doesn't make it right. I don't understand why somebody can't fathom that. The only "law" I believe in is that no man shall de-fraud, threaten or use physical force against somebody else.
  12. If you don't pay the money you go to jail. "To take without right or permission." I didn't ask for them to take other peoples money and distribute it. Anything done with force or threat of force is wrong.
  13. Why is it considered moral for the government to force people to pay money (Tax)? Yes.. some of it might go to someone else who needs it but If I started mugging people and giving the money to charity I would go to jail.
  14. That's awesome : ) I bet I could buy bulk sweets and snacks and sell them at that skatepark.. it's very hot and they are hungry/thristy.. Even if it is illegal.. which is stupid.
  15. Things you would do when you were younger to make money.. or maybe still do? I used to go to this place that sold energy drinks (500ml) for $1.25 each and they sold at the shops for $3. I would go to the skate park with 24 of them in an icebag and sell them $2.50 each.. So I made $30 profit easy. I got the idea from merchanting in runescape :unsure:
