"Lots of luck with that. Not something I support,[I think the premise is facile and naive at best] However,I DO believe war and starvation are evil and should be banned."

Tarquin St John Sh'gn'sty replied to Roxi Atomic's discussion What are your pet peeves?
""Velour. Yes, perfect for a man's shirt with a plunging vee-neck, set off by an ostentatious large medallion on a leather cord. Or am I thinking of velvet? Oh, no, velvet is for canvases for painting unicorns or leopards on, I…"

""Oh, so it was Nixon? Wasn't he impeached? " No and so what if he was? Impeachment is only being charged. The person needs to be convicted. Until that time the presumption of innocence applies. Your question is straw man;it's…"

...not to bad
Napoli - Oslo 2000 miles, 5 countries before EC
Bremen - Istanbul 1500 miles, 6 countries before EC
Graz - Sevilla 2000 miles, 4 countries before EC
Graz - Wien 120 miles, national
Graz - Bregenz 400 miles, national

but since Austria is a member of the European Community, as many other Europeean countries are, most borders are history...still remaining Schweiz (Switzerland), Türkei (Turkey), Norwegen (Norway) and Rußland (Russia)...

...lots of different languages, cultures and, last but not least, traffic and customs laws...hard work, bad money - nevertheless I love my job...

...you should have mentioned the Catalanic Anarchistic Republic in Spain 1933/1934 as an example of a working and functioning anarchistic society (till it was wiped out by the "Franco"-forces)...
...nevertheless I liked your efforts to explain the ways of Anarchy...

Hi
Welcome to Atheist Nexus with its 8300+ good friends
A useful group to join, with its 130 discussions and numerous video films, is “ORIGINS” (Origins: Universe, Life, Humans, Evolution, Religion....).
One discussion (over 70 posts) is "Proud to be Atheist". There's much to feel good about
because atheists, agnostics and humanists hold the intellectual high ground——far from the mental slavery of superstitious people who submit to a narrow-minded controlling clergy with their imaginary god, heaven and hell.
