    Why not solve simple poverty with existing legal and physical infrastructure in our republic, and claim that supply side economics is supposed to be supplying us with better governance at lower cost.

    Actually, if you'll objectively check, the federal government has less real power over our personal lives than at any time since perhaps before the Civil War. For instance, back in WWI, Woodrow Wilson put people - even a congressman IIRC - in jail for years just for speaking out against our involvement in WWI. Then there was slavery, Jim Crow, abolition, women not being allowed to vote, the draft...the list goes on. We're freer today than you think.

    Prosperity is earned not taken from one and given to another. That's called socialism.
    Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

    Yes, socialism must habitually bailout capitalism with a republic.

    No, I believe it is 180 degrees the opposite.

    Why do you believe that? Capitalism doesn't even include a form of government.

    Here is what they want:

    We demand that Google give three billion dollars to an anarchist organization of our choosing. This money will then be used to create autonomous, anti-capitalist, and anti-racist communities throughout the Bay Area and Northern California. In these communities, whether in San Francisco or in the woods, no one will ever have to pay rent and housing will be free. With this three billion from Google, we will solve the housing crisis in the Bay Area and prove to the world that an anarchist world is not only possible but in fact irrepressible. If given the chance, most humans will pursue a course towards increased freedom and greater liberty. As it stands, only people like Kevin Rose are given the opportunity to reshape their world, and look at what they do with those opportunities.

    I wish Google would take them up on this. Small caveat, if the project fails all property therein reverts to Google.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    With $3 billion I could build a free rent, free food, free birth control community also. It might last up to three months.

    Socialism is a failure every time it is foisted on the people. That's why.

    Tell the Swedes that.
    Freedom of speech is not freedom from criticism.
