First off, let me apologize for using those terms, left & right. What I mean by that is Anarcho-Communists and Anarcho-Capitalists.
What I mean by 'circular argument' is that it just goes around and around, always returning where it started, with no resolutions or agreements made. No further understanding is achieved either. Usually, neither side understands how in the world the other can believe what they believe. Let me be one of the few to say, I understand BOTH sides & I think that we argue with more platitudes than realistic statements.
One of the biggest issues there lies in the time setting of the discussion. I often find Anarcho-Capitalists will discuss life in a time AFTER government has been abolished, anarchy has been accepted as the most moral way of life, & communities are deciding amongst themselves what their rules should be (unanimously). Anarcho-Communists will discuss life in a time that is either BEFORE government has been abolished or DURING the abolishment of government. In the discussion of life before government is abolished, they usually seem to argue for a conversion from our current governing structure into communism, then just pull the leaders out afterward (I know I'm hacking the argument apart to a very bare bones view, but stick with me here). In the discussion of life during the abolishment of government, they're usually explaining that the conversion into anarchy would inherently (in their belief) go straight into communism, but without any leaders.
At first glance (& if you've never watched one of these arguments amongst anarchists happen) you might not see why that matters. So I hope I can lay out the arguments & dissect it accordingly so it all makes sense. I'll attempt to do so using the arguments as they usually happen when I'm in them.
THE ARGUMENT BEGINS!
The majority of humans on Earth have their minds focused on things that directly concern them. They think about bills, what to have for dinner, what TV shows to watch, how much gas is in the car, visiting friends or family, & often times politics that pertain to their lives in some form or another. But there’s something that everyone should be concerned with, especially given the time frame left for it’s prophetic beginnings (per Ray Kurzweil) coming in 2045.
I’m talking about what’s known as Transhumanism. In a nutshell, Transhumanism is simply the merging of humans with technology into a sort of techno-organic-symbiosis. Which, at first sounds rather innocent, if not just plain cool. The imagination can run wild with ideas of having the internet in your eyeballs, controlled by your thoughts. A semi-telepathic network via having telephone calls operated by thought & having the receiver directly inside your ears. Also, great medical breakthroughs can be imagined for the paraplegic. Technology in that regard has already been developed & is currently in the improvement phase for better practicality.
Before we get into what’s so concerning to me, lets look at some of the technology they’re looking at producing.
In a recent story: http://www.cnbc.com/id/100952247 CNBC explains something that should be pretty obvious, yet major news corporations are REFUSING to face reality to a point that they will let themselves die before facing the music.
The article takes a few stabs at why people don't read newspapers anymore & why people just skim their news sites instead of reading them in depth. It touches on the fact that people trust their peers more than news outlets these days. All the while not admitting what the real problem is. The PROBLEM: IGNORING REAL PROBLEMS
Sure, they'll talk about disasters & stuff like that. So what do I mean by "REAL" problems? Well, unless you've been sleeping under a rock (or actually believing the main-stream-media [MSM] up to this point), then you also know that there is a HUGE problem with Government. Not just the US Government, but Government in general. If you've been watching the MSM this whole time, you've been listening/watching MAJORLY watered down news. Mostly to make it all seem like Government is still necessary & is, for the most part, good. If you haven't been sleeping under a rock, then you might have come to the conclusions that a LOT of people in the world are coming to:
