Er. Do you really trust your government that much? O_o; I understand the sentiment -- I'm a big fan of zero population growth -- but I don't think there's any sane way you can trust the sort of authority who criminalized sodomy, beat, gas & shot protesters, burned witches, enslaved others, et cetera, with the human race's genetic destiny. This paves the way for something far darker than merely suppressing a minority group's voice -- you've created an instrument that will allow government to suppress thier lives.

Nice logical fallacies there.

Also, I meant more along the lines of a parenting test, to see whether or not they'd be the sort who'd beat their children.

Both have points. On one hand, you have tests for those more likely to be violent, more likely to be empathetic and "good" caretakers.

On the other, what defines a "good" caretaker? Especially in light of our system's mistreatment of human beings?

Re: Post your evilest political opinions here

Can we have two? Because I thought of one that's more evil. Perpetrators of horrible crimes that are guilty beyond a shadow of a doubt should be used as shock troops and medical test subjects. I read about some crimes lately, and honestly, I can't even think of a good punishment. Though the other half of me is sympathetic because the people who commit them clearly have mental disorders.

Re: Post your evilest political opinions here

Actually, socialist theory has some pretty glaring contradictions. It's not just "Oh we'll be nice to the workers," centralization of power and control was integral. You'd think that shopfloor democracy would be an important part of any worker's paradise, but the political system posited by socialism could never be compatible with it. It's not even good on paper if you actually read the books.

There's more than one socialist theory out there. The Soviet model has been rejected pretty much by everyone, but socialism itself lives on in many, many countries, including many succesful, modern democracies. I live in one, as a matter of fact. There's a bit more in the ideology than "worker's paradise".
Personally, I find it twisted that people make concepts like socialism or capitalism into ideologies, when they pretty clearly are simply means to an end, tools that have their uses in different points of the social spectrum, but inevitably break down into feudalistic oppression if left unchecked. In fact civilizations controlled by absolute capitalism and absolute socialism would be for all practical purposes identical.

Re: Post your evilest political opinions here

So these are supposed to be evil political opinions?  All right.  There's stuff I know probably wouldn't work out if enforced, but wish we lived in a world where it could occur...

I think immigration of all kinds should be mostly legal.  Overflow immigrants should be directed to specific parts of the country that do not have high real estate demand.

I think the "having" of children should be heavily taxed after one (not provide a tax break).

All drugs should be legal and regulated and an information campaign should be sponsored.

We should test weird science stuff on criminals of a certain degree (that we're relatively sure are guilty).

Lobbying should be subsidized and regulated by the government until they're the information sources they should be.  The internet will help with this.

No more military recruiting until our military is half of what it is.  On the flip side: people who go bankrupt but to work as indentured servants for the government.  Also, no more B-2 bombers.

Higher taxes on the wealthy and much higher taxes on big business.  I guess that one's not evil, but I feel like not needing to substantiate it might be...?

Local, state and federal governments should work more closely together, and a higher percentage of taxes should go to local and state governments.

No more affirmative action.

Religious services no longer automatically tax-exempt.

The United States should break into three pieces; the North/East, the South plus Canada and the West plus Hawaii.  The South will be defeated when it inevitably attempts to rise again (after realizing how worthless it is except as a haven for old people).

Whoops, I sort of had a lot.

Clearly, you do not understand how much children cost. Kids are expensive. Raising a kid in the US costs a couple thousand dollars per year on average, never mind if a parent wants to assist in sending the little punk off to college.
Now, if the idea is to stop, or at least discourage, so many people from having bunches of kids, well, I'm sure there are other ways to make that happen... school-devil

Why would we need other ways?  Well, I can think of a reason: people hate government even while they comprise government, so this particular way wouldn't last long.  But that applies to all of my silly, amoral ideas.
Anyway, I wouldn't have it apply ex post facto, to anyone who already had multiple children before the policy was enacted.  That would be unfair!

Then I am confused emot-confused. What is the greater purpose of taxing children? What's the end goal?

I just went ahead and assumed you meant that a high tax on kids would be similar to the high tax on tobacco products- something meant to discourage. Did you just mean it as a tax to be put in place just for the financial benefits?

Re: Post your evilest political opinions here

For me it would be to either discourage the having of children more and more children, or--for the cases it doesn't--the collection of funds that could be used to offset the costs of new humans' consumption in the environment.  Until technology/methods improve such that consumption is completely short-term sustainable, at least, which I guess could happen.

THANK YOU. As a Democratic Socialist in the United States, you have no idea how many people have not actually read up on it and just think it has something to do with communism. I do agree on your last point, though I would think communism would be absolute socialism. That's how I've always understood the spectrum--Laissez faire capitalism on one end, communism on the other. Both end up with a concentration of money and power for a select group of people and very little hope of expanding or joining that group.

When you get down to it, the Soviet Union's political model didn't really resemble Marx's ideals one bit, so calling it communist is a bit misleading as well, but it seems that the word has pretty much mutated to mean anything that went on in that country. Modern communists almost invariably hate the Soviet Union for ruining the ideology for everybody. Personally though, I think that the communist ideology doesn't work in real world conditions, and always leads to the same conclusion as a giant corporate monopoly: all wealth in the hands of a tiny elite, and the whole system a corrupt, unmanageable wreck. Sometimes I wish I'd went to study social economics, but I doubt that my chances of employment would have been very good after a thesis which explains how criminal organizations, large corporations and communist dictatorships all work on the same principles of traditional feudalism.

I think I said it earlier in this thread, but I really wish we could figure out a social model that isn't capitalistic, communistic or a watered down compromise between the two. At the moment the last is our best bet, and it's not exactly a satisfactory or stable solution.

Why not? emot-confused This isn't necessarily a bad thing. I know that in the African-American community, we're taught that it's the one thing that allows us to go to some of the really big colleges that have a rather high percentage of Caucasian students and/or a high propensity towards accepting primarily Caucasian students, and also what helps us get some of those jobs we probably wouldn't get otherwise (college degree or not). On the other hand, we're also told that it's what helps people (Caucasian, Asian, Hispanic and all others) get into schools that are HBCUs. It works either way, right? I mean, I'm pretty sure my knowledge about it is limited, but, it doesn't seem like such a bad thing. Anyone who understands it better, I'm all ears.

I don't think it's a bad thing either; in fact, I think it's probably the fairest way to do things, as we stand.  So my opinion is probably evil.

As I see it, it sucks when colleges aren't colorblind, and it sucks when primary education favors those that live in certain districts.  But biases of individual colleges can be taken care of on individual bases.  Structural bias instituted and regulated by the government seems like a worse, more intractable thing to me, even if it makes things a bit more fair.  Especially when social media and communication is so easy now that we have an alternative: unfair treatment can be flagged and public opinion is so important in a more global society.  But that can't be done if there's a government mandate for unfairness (all things being equal, in individual cases).  The idea of affirmative action fuels the prejudice of those who want something solid to fear, and perpetuates the idea of difference between persons with different levels of melanin in their skin.

tl;dr - We risk perpetuating the problem by trying to fix it even if it's faded.

I actually go further in my horrible mind: I think that schools should be allowed to restrict people from entering however they desire.  I would hope they would then crash and burn when people spurn them for more accepting institutions.  If they don't, something's seriously wrong, and it'd be good to get that out in the open.  Maybe we could try to convince the stupid people that superficiality is stupid, and they'd get a bit smarter.  But they won't be smarter in the meantime, and that's why the Tea Party popped up (I would reckon).
