Fashion: Suspenders

To the best of my knowledge, suspenders were widely considered to be strictly an undergarment up until the early 20th century. Those of you who keep up with the fashion scene, what are your thoughts? I've attached a photo of myself, sporting suspenders as a fashion statement, as opposed to merely a ...

Re: Philosophical: Purge

You are assuming that people wouldn't do what they always do: find ways to play the system. Doesn't matter if it's 5% or 50%, the ones ending up dead would be the ones who have other things to do or aren't able to play the system, which means the poor as someone already said, whatever currency this...

Re: Philosophical: Purge

You'd be so much worse off, businesses wouldn't have people to sell stuff to or to employ, and you would need to keep retraining people because your previous employees were purged. Also you would have constant attempts at uprisings when people's families were killed I don't think this would be the ...

Re: Philosophical: Purge

you're essentially saying this is a post-scarcity society but the only method you outline to achieve this is a fascist one better way to improve the median intelligence would be to end poverty, which would be accomplished through things like, as you say, funding public education... but you rather j...

Re: Philosophical: Purge

In the end you'd probably have people with an IQ of 140 working in factories or cleaning the streets. Is this quest for a high IQ population really necessary? I can see the benefit of avoiding overpopulation but it ends there. This is basically like asking if society would have less stuff to handle...

Re: Philosophical: Purge

why not implement something like china's one child per family rule? Clearly, that isn't effective for China. If China which is grossly overpopulated was to institute a Purge Program, they could quickly get their population under control. Additionally, the liquidated assets of the purged would be us...

Re: Philosophical: Purge

Well this wasn't perhaps worded in the best manner. Country sets ideal population limit. Yearly, anyone 21+ takes a test. Lowest scores are purged to bring country back to ideal population limit. You are getting the inherent benefits of an ideal population, as well as a higher median intelligence le...

Lol imagine you'd lose family members or friends to that, gl in your later life. Bad idea. He isn't asking whether it's a good or bad idea though, but whether a country with this rule in effect would have a higher score after 100 years. No think of all the psychological consequences out of that. Pe...

Re: Philosophical: Purge

Is it the same test every year? What does the test even measure? Can you learn for the test through reading or physical experience with something? Does it test arbitrary knowledge or useful knowledge? For the purpose of the poll we are assuming that the test is perfectly unbiased and objective, onl...

Philosophical: Purge

What if: At the age of 21 and once yearly after that point the residents of a country underwent a Test. The bottom 50% of that Test would be Purged - their assets liquidated and used to fund public education. Provisions would be made to prevent dropping below a certain population level, allowing for...

4836 I think your therapist got it wrong. Between your good people skills (making APD unlikely) and the various emotional benders I have seen you go on, I would classify you as a narcissist. Is narcissism not a characteristic of both sociopathic and psychopathic individuals? Edit: additionally, goo...

Re: Are you sociopathic?

Sociopathy /=/ Anti-social. Sociopathy is basically interchangeable with Psychopathy and is probably due to organic damage to, or genetic poor development of, the amygdala and/or the limbic 'system'. I'm sorry, but this is simply not true. Please don't take offense. :flowers: I'm sorry but this is ...

Re: Are you sociopathic?

There are fundamental differences between sociopathic and psychopathic behaviors. While there are many similarities, it is thought that sociopaths have a less severe lack of empathy and lack of guilt. Furthermore, sociopaths can form deep bonds, such as with family, friends, and romantic partners - ...

Re: Are you sociopathic?

You must separate your conceptions of morality and ethics from simulations such as this. Of course unprecedented murder is "Bad". Would humanity bounce back as being overall "better off" with a higher median intelligence though?
