Okay thank you.

Well that would still be extremely rare cases unless of course you were behind on taxes.

As far as I have found only the government can take land from you and only under certain conditions like you not paying your tax. Would you mind citing where a corporation that is not part of the government can tale your property without buying it from you?

Forum Topic "Communism and Socialism"

Where does there freedom go when their land is seized for the benefit of a large corporation?

Well the corporation would need to buy it from them. If they own it it is theirs as long as they pay tax and abide by the laws of the country. If the property is seized legally without the people that own it being given the choice to sell it or not than that is not a free country.

I think there has to be a separation between capitalism as an economic engine and government, if that makes sense.

In my opinion this is how the government and capitalism should interact. It's like a fight in a hockey game. Two people bash it out and when things are about to enter territory where it is dangerous for everyone around them, than the government, in this case the Referee steps in and breaks it up and sends them to the box.

Forum Topic "Communism and Socialism"

Nullarc77 3 Builds 2 points 1 month ago

Well. That wouldn't be real socialism.....

I get what you are saying and how a lot of socialist societies have devolved into the government playing favorites and everybody else suffering. I should have been more clear that I was speaking of an ideal socialist society where the government does not play favorites and treats everybody equally no matter what.

But I don't disagree with your statement that socialism can work on an extremely small scale such as a household. Just not really with a parent and kid household and more of a college apartment for example with a few people living there and all of them with job and going to school and treating everything except there as everybody's.

Forum Topic "Communism and Socialism"

True. But one aspect I forgot to mention about a monarchy is that you are your wife as the monarchs would be providing protection and you your citizens(the other members of your household) and they go about their lives and come to you for permission to do certain things mainly outside the kingdom. And then they repay you with tax, in this case in form of manual labor. Now of course a lot this, especially this next part, can change depending on the household. But in mine not all the citizens are treated equally. They are treated according to their actions and work. I do not get treated the same as my brothers. And I am okay with that. In a monarchy the king has the right to treat everyone different. But in a socialist society the government must treat every citizen equally whether they earned their keep or not. I would assume that if you had 2 kids and you asked them both if they would like to earn $5 by each of them doing a different chore, and one said yes and the other no. I would assume that you wouldn't give them both $5 even tho only one of them actually did the work. You would probably offer the second job to the kid that agreed to work and end up paying him for both. At least that's how my household works.

Forum Topic "Communism and Socialism"

Nullarc77 3 Builds 2 points 1 month ago

True. But I think you are overlooking a few details. A household is not as much socialist as it is a monarchy. Yes you do bring home income and redistribute it. But your wife does work all day if not at a job to keep the house in order and take care of your kid. And when your kid is old he will start(if he hasn't already) doing chores to somewhat earn his keep. Granted they would still primarily just be benefiting but they would at least be working in some capacity. That's how I have always viewed it. And in return one day your kids will take care of you.

That's how I view it at least.

Forum Topic "Communism and Socialism"

Here is the way I look at it. If you wanted to in a Capitalist country you can gather a bunch of people together that agree with you, buy a lot of land and supplies, and go live on your own and have that be a Communist or Socialist society where everybody gets the same stuff no matter how hard they work. You have that option. As long as you don't break the laws of the country you will be fine. Heck you can even declare that land your own country if you wanted to.

In a Communist or Socialist country you can't gather a group of people, buy a bunch of land and start your own Capitalist society within the Communist or Socialist country. Simply because you can't really buy land in a country where everything is owned by the government.

I would rather have the ability to choose. Just my thoughts on the topic.

I will start on the mob farm when I can. Prolly gonna build it near spawn and try to keep it looking half-way decent.

Yeah there is fun to be had with the ocean update. One thing I wish they would update is mining. I don't know how they would change it but for being half the game's title you think it would play a greater role. But hey it's the most effecientbway to get most materials.

Also I just remembered fishing is actually a viable way of getting things now.

One thing I want to do is set up a public mob farm where the mobs spawn in a giant room underground and eventually walk into water and get pushed into a trap and kills then and their loot get collected by hoppers and chests. I have done it before sp it shouldn't be hard. Anyway with it being public and infinite people would just be able to take whatever they need like gunpowder, bones, arrors etc.

Okay. Not much has changed since then. Again biggest thing is the ocean. I don't play often but I was able to just hop back in without any confusion. Cool part is that there is actually stuff to do in the ocean now. And loot to be had. Also there are several great caces for mining near spawn. Even a ravine that has plenty if survace iron and coal. So you will be able to get up and running very quickly.

Because the earth isn't flat. It's doughnut shaped. Amd right in the middle if the doughnut is the north pole being held in place by equal geavity on all sides. Santa literally just jumps high enough to get pulled down to earth. His sleigh acts as a glider that keeps him from crashing.

Yeah that would likely drive up demand for Flex Tape.

The super strong water proof tape. That can easily patch, bond, seal and repair. Flex Tape is no ordinary tape. It's triple trick adhesive virtually welds itself to any surface. Instantly stopping the toughest leaks.

Leaky pipes can cause major damage. But Flex Tape grips on tight and bonds instantly. Plus, Flex Tape's powerful adhesive is so strong, It even works under water.

Now you can repair leaks in pools and spas without draining them. Flex Tape is perfect for marine, campers and RVs. Flex tape is super strong, and once it's on it holds on tight. And for emergency auto repair, Flex Tape keeps it's grip. Even in the toughest conditions. Big storms can cause big damage. But Flex Tape comes super wide. So you can easily patch large holes.

To show you the power of Flex Tape... I sawed this boat in half. And repaired it with only Flex Tape. Not only does Flex Tape's powerful adhesive hold the boat together but, it creates a super strong water tight seal. So the inside is completely dry.

YEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE DOGYYYYYYY.

Just cut, peal, stick and seal. Imagine everything you can do with the power of Flex Tape.

Forum Topic "In regards to the internet, how do you plan on raising your children?"

Nullarc77 3 Builds 1 point 1 month ago

That is generally caused from a lack of social interaction during key stages of development. That's why I think it's important to foster social activities, clubs, etc. I don't think the main thing you take away from schooling is social skills. That can be learned elsewhere. The focus during school should be learning life skills and interests.

Very true. My parents had me in sports most of my life and it wasn't hard for me to make friends in my neighborhood.

Forum Topic "In regards to the internet, how do you plan on raising your children?"

Nullarc77 3 Builds 1 point 1 month ago

Well as somebody who is currently being home schooled and has been all my life I can recommend. My parents also agree that around age 15(if the kid is ready) they should start moving away from high school and in to higher levels of education. I am 16 almost finished with high school and starting college soon.

Plus there are a lot of advantages for the kid. Does not need to spend 6-8 hours in a class when they can accomplish everything in 1-2 hours and either get more work done or just pursue something else. If I was public schooled or private schooled I would not have been able to learn about computers and get into how they work and what parts do what nearly as well. Because I would have been studying other things that were required and I had no interest in more than 2-3 hours a day.

Plus if you ever decide to take a trip you don't need to run it by the school. You can just tell your kid to pack and you can just leave. Also it can let you spend more time with them. And if you are worried about the so called typical aniti-social home schooled kid, while there are those types of people present, they are few and far between. Most home schooled kids I have met are just as social if not more than the average kid that goes to public or private school. But the stereotypical ant-social homeschoolers do exist. And they make the rest of us look bad. I met some a while back. But as long as you don't let your kid stay inside all day only with nobody to speak to you will be fine.

Here is what I would do. Instead of getting a 1440p 144hz panel, use your 1080p 240hz for fast paced multiplayer games where refresh rate is more important than graphics. And get a 4k 60hz monitor for your single player games to get the best graphics out if those. You are certainly capable if running 4k 60fps no problem. That is my suggestion.

Actually on most cards you can undervolt and keep the same clock speeds and still get the lower temps amd power draw. In some cases you can undervolt and overclock. So undervolting is a great idea but in most cases itdoes need to come at the cost of performance.

Hello there.

Forum Topic "Why are all of the build guides from staff?"

Nullarc77 3 Builds 2 points 1 month ago

I am fine with this. It would make way for crappy build guides and tons of misinformation. A thing which PCPP as a community usually does a great job of avoiding. And it usually gets called out when present.

However I do think a curated build guide system would be cool. Where you can submit build guides and they staff chooses whether or not to actually post it depending on if it is good or not. But while that would be a cool feature it would take time that the staff probably doesn't have. So I can also see why it has not been done.

Well I am 16 years old and my 42 year old mother uses social media more than I do. I just have better things to do that interest me more. I rarely use anything other than Instagram which is what all of my friends use and I log on a one or two times a day. But that's it. I honestly consider PCPP a better social media site than any actual social media site. Because unlike social media sites I can actually engage in intelligent conversation on topics that interest me. If I want to speak to somebody I will text or call them. I also use Reddit a lot. But mainly to look at memes. It's funny. The point of social media which is to let people from all over the world communicate and share ideas in a creative manner gets accomplished better by forums that were originally made for people to discuss computer hardware.

https://mygaming.co.za/news/features/89913-there-are-1-8-billion-gamers-in-the-world-and-pc-gaming-dominates-the-market.html

Which lines up with other articles I have read in the past. So the answer to which platform has the most is PC. Although many people play on both console and PC.
