Is the only possible outcome of the modern economic capitalist system we live in a total failure? Will it ever work properly? Will we actually be able to 'make' money? Instead of simply moving it and creating debt? What will the crash look like? First world nations reverting to third world?

What do you call the kilotons of manufactured goods and megatons of raw materials we've extracted?
Why have I never heard this stuff before? This should be taught in schools. It is stunning. I had no idea this kind of recording existed.
I mean think about it, he fought through the Civil War, lived through the Wild West times, the Industrial Revolution at the turn of the century, and saw the inventions of radios, televisions, cars, airplanes, tanks, jets, and nuclear weapons.
I really can't even fathom it.
Here is another neat video. I wish we had more of these old people on tape giving interviews....

Biggest scumbag in history?
Does anyone actually like this pretentious little pissant?
Also, Existentialism thread
What's wrong with his philosophy? I only know the basis "being-onto-death" which I find to be a right way to look at life. I was actually going to get into his philosophy more, but I'd like to know what you dislike about it OP.
What does /his/ think about Psychology? Can we have an intelligible conversation about it?
Since the last thread got archived with only one reply I'm gonna post this again.
I need all the sources you have on:
Academic and sacred texts are both good.
I already know about Lewis Masonic and McCoy.
What is peoples actual opinion on this man?
He gets shit on a lot on 4chan and while his party was definitely inolved in some questionable actions, was he himself so much to blame?

i dont care if you do or don't agree with it
how do anarcho syndicalists claim not to employ coercion? and if they really don't coerce anyone to work, what of those who choose not to but leech off the society? jsut let them? because i think disallowing someone to leech would be saying they can't eat without work which sounds to me like capitalist coercion
sorry if ive compeltely misunderstood
all human discourse is coercion unless people automatically agree all the time, if freedom is the ability to do what someone immediately wants then any kind of challenge to somebody's beliefs or advocacy for the truth is coercion
this is why I left anarchism
>private ownership of the means of production is a totally fair and balanced institution

Strawman. Free marketeers don't believe it's balanced; they believe greater economic growth regardless of who benefits is a better policy than more balanced economic growth with "chosen" winners.
What does /his/ think about this statement?
So, I was reading the wikipedia for Majapahit, and it stated that it was considered offensive to touch someone on the head, to the point where violence often erupted over it. Can anyone confirm?
>it was considered offensive to touch someone on the head, to the point where violence often erupted
Indonesian here, this is actually still a thing in certain parts of Sumatra Island
How much of a threat Carthage was to Rome really?
Looking at the Pop History out there, they make it like that these two niggas were like the up and coming powers in the Med.
But there seems to be more powerful entities than Carthage in the region really
Yes, they were up and coming powers. But it was each would serve to be the stepping stone into much greater glory. It just so happened that Rome won.
Also I'd say Carthage was a greater threat to Rome because of proximity, influence on surrounding entities (Iberians, Islanders etc) and economic power. The other Greek sons were fucking around with each other anyway and weren't an active threat to Rome as much as Carthage was.
What would Karl Marx think of basic income his?
I think he would not be for it because it is just another means of control
>tfw communism was created by a literal fat neckbeard and his buddy, the fugly Jew
Not surprisingly the followers of Marxism fit one of those cathegories even today
What is a valid argument against the notion of infinite regress?
