Re: Public/Private Space and Individual Rights

To be fair, Chile has a fucked up, violent, recent history. It's easy to demand that everything be better than it is; difficult to put that into practice in any case.

Re: Public/Private Space and Individual Rights

Good issue... I have to say, if I lived in a house I wouldn't like to see random people just standing there and taking pictures; however, if they are being taken from public space, I shouldn't have the legal right to formally complain about it (within a framework of common sense, of course. If I th...

Re: Public/Private Space and Individual Rights

you've got to be Hype. :lolol: Your vocabulary is too broad not to be. Yeah, I let Hoka know that I signed up under a new name. I don't mind still being referred to as "Hype", but I wanted to distance myself from "Hypersonic" because: a) I don't listen to Strays, and b) most people forgot that the ...

Re: Public/Private Space and Individual Rights

It's a Scylla and Charybdis scenario... on the one hand, you have the power of governmental authority (given by the Law, and legitimated by social contract theory) which can become fascism if left unchecked. On the other hand, you have the power of any given private individual or group, the authorit...

Public/Private Space and Individual Rights

I know Hoka's pretty gung-ho about Libertarianism and related ideas (privatization seems to be pretty common among neo-Libertarians...). I came across this video of something of a social experiment that seems to me to highlight the value of public property and public services: FJH9F7Hcluo It's reall...

Re: Movies

A Serious Man is a great movie. I can see why some people wouldn't like it, but I thought it was actually better than No Country for Old Men (especially the beginning stuff with the dybbuk and the ending). But then, I work in Academia, and have Jewish family. :scared:

Re: Reactionaries are feminists, too

There are women who aren't complete fucking idiots out there too, though. Maybe that has something to do with it.

Re: Please don't fuck up the forums

I think that Pandemonium's idea of a FAQ is probably not a good one for a few reasons: when you stipulate rules, it can encourage a certain kind of person to mess with them, "for lulz". One of the reasons Sonny's board was so great is that he found a way to strike a balance between freedom of expres...

Re: Need Some Help - PHPBB3

If you can type the initials, then there's really no problem, I think. (It took some effort to come up with a name that worked on a few levels... having two words was intentional, so it could be initialized. At least it's not MYXLPLXYX or whatever.) We should have a contest for designing a replaceme...
