    Hypocrisy on Abortion?

    in Politics Discussion on 21 May 2019

    vivster said: Baalzamon said: So now you are going to force the abortion of damaged fetuses? You are once again dictating what the mother has to do with her body...which seems to be people's entire problem with not allowing abortion in the first place. I'm putting a scenario out there where the mother absolutely decides she still wants the baby. So nobody can tell her she can't...

    Hypocrisy on Abortion?

    in Politics Discussion on 21 May 2019

    vivster said: Baalzamon said: A baby also can't survive via it's own power (it will die rather quickly without somebody taking care of it)...so I don't think that should have anything at all to do with the argument. It is also a fine line saying the mother can do whatever she wants to her body. So if a mother decides to continue drinking absurd amounts of alcohol, and the baby...

    Pemalite said: The mother owns the body in question, not the fetus. Thus the mother should have the first and last say of what occurs in her body... Otherwise we are giving the rights of the host body to another human being.If the fetus can survive via it's own power, then let it, but it shouldn't be allowed to at the expense of another person.************As for the Universal Basic...

What do you mean by "still ok"? You basically provided an example where anything other than piracy would be nonsensical. The logic behind whether a game should cost $3,000 and why...

    Or how about bookkeeping software. A small company (think 2-3 employees where if the company fails these people will be bankrupt) just isn't going to be able to make it despite all of their hard work, they should probably just be able to pirate all of their software to upgrade their computer system. Perhaps some nice new $10,000 accounting software, some tax software. After all, they worked their...

If one person makes $40,000 a year and can afford 5 games, and another person makes $30,000 a year and cannot afford any games, the ONLY solution to this is the $30,000 person should be able to illegally download these games and still play them.

    And no, those who don't steal aren't necessarily priviledged, they just live with what they are given. My budget in college was pretty obscenely low, including limiting myself to ramen or macoroni many days. That doesn't mean Im just entitled to steal things to make up for it. It meant I just found cheap things to do/play. ...
