    As long as we argue over the details (left vs. right, anarcho/capitalist vs socialism, pro Israel vs. anti Israel) we will continue to miss the big picture and the domination and destruction will continue.

    You're purposely intellectually dishonest to troll the forums. I called you out on it. Don't act sore.

    "I think the basic anti-aging diet is also the best diet for prevention and treatment of diabetes, scleroderma, and the various "connective tissue diseases." This would emphasize high protein, low unsaturated fats, low iron, and high antioxidant consumption, with a moderate or low starch consumption.

    In practice, this means that a major part of the diet should be milk, cheese, eggs, shellfish, fruits and coconut oil, with vitamin E and salt as the safest supplements."

    Another ridiculous post. How do you even justify such a statement?

I assumed Paul would immediately return the money (or donate it to a group like the Holocaust Museum), prevent a link on Black's Neo-Nazi website, Stormfront, from connecting to the campaign's donation page, and announce these moves on the official Ron Paul website. I assumed wrong."

    How did you come to that conclusion?

I am not trying to be confrontational but I don't understand how anarchy is great when we have examples of it not. I would love if everyone felt the way I did...I think anarchy would work...but there are a lot of really bad people and people who support them..then the people are ruled once again this time by another horrible person....
    And in Iowa City, the same type of natural disaster resulted cooperation, civility, and human kindness in the same anarchistic environment. I don't think anybody is arguing that anarchy is a panacea. A bunch of violent, stupid, culturally debased savages aren't ever going to amount to much no matter what the government structure. But even within this context there can be improvement. You cite Africa, and we have an actual case study there that proves the point. Somalia was a horrible, violent place when they had a national government. Since that government has dissolved, it is still a pretty horrible place, but nobody can deny things have gotten at least a bit better.
