John 8:7

So when they continued asking him, he lifted up himself, and said unto them, He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her.

Or in this case, him?

I've never seen such a compounded mess of nonsense. They keep Marijuana illegal and then try to fry him in court... then his lawyers come along and for a few hunerd thousand, make it all disappear.

That's like three wrongs in a row. Lol this country is such a joke.


it hasn't completely disappeared yet, but that pardon app is in and they're telling me that my chances are very good so we'll see.

Who is talking to you...I am not a Freudian, I am a Christian...evil and sin is primordial and irremovable from human nature...I think murderers should be hang, pervs and rapists have their genitalia cut off and thieves have their fingers chopped or be burned with a mark that everybody can see on their faces if the thieving was not as serious. The Yank gimmick is to always talk about the criminal and his punishment...nobody talks about the damage he inflicts on others...who will bring a life back to a butchered victim???, who will give a dignity back to a raped woman???, who will recompensate for the collateral damage of thieving and corruption which harms millions of individuals and their families??? God will if he exists...but his justice and love is not of this world and every decent society must find sap in itself to punish evil or it will melt away.

But I repeat myself:

Teasle: Whatever possessed God in heaven to make a man like polishyouth?
Nature: God didn't make polishyouth. I made him.


If polishyouth has any sense at all, he will latch onto this with all his might. He would be compelled by nature to insist that he is never able not to post the submental fulminating fanatic Kidstuff that he does here.

Then, as with all the rest of us, he is off the hook.

I'm blowin up y'all and I don't know what 2 do. I therefore seek your counsel, ILP.

I'm taking on too much work and I need to hire some help. Now how do I pay em. I ain't no capitalist cocksucker so I ain't gonna pay him a wage. But how do I decide what he deserves? If, say, I give him half of what I make, that assumes our involved labor is equal. How do I measure that?

See capitalism avoids all this and let's people negotiate freely (in theory, not practice) in such matters. The value of labor is not a problem here.

But we don't wanna do it that way because that shit don't work either (in practice, not theory).

The only solution i can think of is to first educate the people so that they are competent about the nature of the work, and then ask them to submit their vote so that we can determine the value (and therefore proper payment) of my and my helper's labor, democratically.

Listen I'm fine with pure anarchism where we don't have to sort all these property problems out and I just take ur shit. But u can't do this capitalism nonsense where it all sounds good but literally can't work in any conceivable material universe where intelligent creatures who have opposable thumbs inhabit a world and manipulate its environment to produce goods they then use to stay alive, without generating countless conflicts between the producers and consumers involved in said process.

Any reasonable person who is not a criminal anarchist is going to concede that decisions made about these matters has to result from a competent, democratic majority vote... or else you get the conflicts that produce criminal anarchists who just take ur shit, ignoring the four hundred years of philosophical clap-trap designed to defend the property rights that favor the capitalist class.

I will give to my helper the total amount of value his labor is worth, or I refuse to work em. Now I need the entire world to form a global syndicate, learn about carpentry, and then collectively decide how much money should be given for x amount of time and labor.

@Prom.. perhaps they should be hired on a day rate? it resolves all and any issues, that way.

Best to check online what the average day rate is, for such a job spec that you are looking to advertise for.

I’d go for the average minimum wage, as you’ll get a more quality worker that way.. coz you don’t want a dead beat representing you and your brand.

Standards do have to be maintained MrR.. as nobody wants to be known for doing a bad job or offering a subpar service, now, do they?

Fine, but I want to be paid for my labor in responding to this (in gold or bitcoin only).

That might be OK down the track but not at the start. At this stage, I'd keep it simple. Offer to pay them above the normal rate (say 20%) and tell them you would like to give them a bonus depending on the quality, time and revenue you bring in. Don't overpay your workers because that just becomes the norm and when a downturn comes and you have to reduce the rate, they get pissed off. Better to share the spoils when you can evaluate their work and you actually have the revenue in your account.

People have different levels of productivity and different skill sets. Additionally, they often require different things from a job. Believe it or not, money isn't the most important thing for most people. Enjoying the job, respect, praise and responsibility are often rated higher than pay.

My main advice would be to expand your generosity little by little as you learn the ropes. You can always give people more money and responsibility as you go, but you can't take it back if/when you find out it's not working.

Anarchy doesn’t mean a free for all. That’s a cliché the controllers use to make people think we need them. Anarchy just means ‘without a governing body’ or, in other words, anarchy is direct, self-governance. There are lots of communities that don’t have governing bodies to make decisions for them. These communities get together and vote on how to run their own system DIRECTLY. Ironically, the crime rate is extremely low in these sorts of systems because criminal activities threatens the entire town and they don’t have anywhere to hide. Criminals are often driven miles away and dumped in the big cites where they are forced to fend for themselves.

A while back, I saw a video of a town in Mexico that runs this way. They not only kicked out the criminal cartels but they also kicked out the government and run their own show. The town is surrounded by armed guards and even if the the criminals/government agents were to get in, the entire town would rise up against them. To them (and me) there's no difference between criminal cartels and government; both are crooked leaches.

This is going to be a great learning experience. The problem I have with arm-chair socialists is that they haven't tried to put their idealism into practice so this experiment should be fun. I wish you all the success in the world. Again, I only suggest you go slowly and don't promise your workers too much, too soon.

"The problem I have with arm-chair socialists is that they haven't tried to put their idealism into practice"

Yup there's two generally agreed on ways to attempt a 'practice' of it. Imposing it from the top down (if only briefly in a leninistic vanguard form), or letting it spontaneously originate from the bottom up in the shape of a sudden revolution of the people. Of course organizations are then established when an attempt at a new order is made, by the people (p dictatorship stage).

The difference is, the former state invariably dissolves into a corrupt beaucratic mess as leaders are forced to conspire with the wealthiest in their countries in order to secure their places of power. Then u get something like state capitalism which is theater communism. Not the real stuff. Like the k2 of weed. Similar in many ways but not the same buzz entirely and subject to make u freak out at any moment.

But I think at the end of the day, the evolutionary marxists will be right and the revolutionary marxists will be wrong.

If, of course, we aren't entering into some major major new world order FEMA camp nutriloaf curfew type shit with microchips and robot cops patrolling the street.

I'm sorry but I really must revise this memorable promethean75 quote. A minor adjustment has to be made in the wording:

"You can take another man's property, wife, reputation, honor, pride and even his blood, but you never take another man's labor"

That's the final edition. The original form had 'product of labor', which could be interpreted as being his 'property', and a contradiction would occur.

But now, while this contradiction might emerge if the reader translates property to represent labor (then u shouldn't be able to take his property), it isn't as directly drawn from the text.

Promethean75 memorable quotes should not be overanalyzed, either. You KNOW what I mean poetically somehow and ur not supposed to look too closely at it.

Just pretend Aristotle Hoffa said it.
