  1. How many different political and economic systems have been tried and tested in the Middle East? Monarchy has failed. It is not a stable system of government. It is an unfair system where a royal family treats a nation as a business. Socialism and Communism came and went. Egypt and South Yemen had that model. It failed. Dictatorship was a disaster. Saddam's Iraq, Mubarak's Egypt, They all failed. Democracy is an illusion which is also on the verge of failing. You have to understand, Turkey and Pakistan are both secular democratic governments. Both nations have corrupt politicians. Bot
  2. http://www.bbc.com/news/world-34440567 In numbers: the decline of global extreme poverty1990: 1,959 billion = 37.1% of world's population. 1999: 1,747 billion = 29% of world's population. 2012: 902 million = 12.8% of world's population. 2015: 702 million = 9.6% of world's population.
  3. I was going through my notifications and noticed that two members had started a personal conversation with me. "If you have any problem with Mods/Admins kindly write a PM to someone in the SC Moderating Team, not write negative replies in the topics. Thanks." How do I write a PM? Can someone please help me with this issue?
  4. I find your response and rhetoric to be very appalling. I reiterate, I do not know who "Fisherking" is. I do not know who you are. I do not know anyone on this website. If there is anyway I can prove to you that I am not "Fisherking", that is within reason, to allay your concerns, I will oblige. https://groups.google.com/forum/#!msg/alt.religion.islam.arabic/4S7gdcVzeV0/x9Mkg4PKTjkJ "If the admin's don't like someone they just accuse you of "trying to pick up girls" and ban you." I do not ignore moderators "PM's". I do not even know how to use the utility. Had I known, I w
  5. The case of the United States is a bit different. This has not been brought up yet, but the Oil for Dollars system should be noted. You mentioned that wages continued to go up until the 1970's. During that time, the cold war was also going on and the United States was at a disadvantage since it could only spend money relative to its gold supply. They ended this and came to an understanding with the opec nations. Since that time, the only way a nation could buy oil was with dollars. It was beneficial at the time for the United States to have this system and the only way for it to work was impor
  6. What have I done to make you treat me so disrespectfully? I come to this website. I post in topics that are within my scope of understanding. I mind my own business. I leave. I scroll this thoughts topic and I read: "A thief escapes from prison. He doesn't want to get caught. But he can't help telling the world that he is a thief." It is very disrespectful and disappointing. I do not know who you are. I do not know who "Fisherking" is. I do not know any of the people on this website. Show some class and respect. “A fool's mind is at the mercy of his tongue and a wise man's tongue i
  7. When you have a population that wants their constitutional rights respected on one side, especially the second amendment, then on the other hand, you have a government who has slowly over time, tried their utmost to limit or take away some of those rights, it eventually becomes a problem. Many Americans are passionate about their second amendment rights. The only way for the government to take away or limit those rights would be to spread fear and panic in the hopes the public would bow to gun control. This fits a pattern with the United States government unfortunately both in terms foreign an
  8. Taking into account the fact that modern day Bangladesh too was part of pre-partition India which was also formerly East Pakistan, If one were to combine the populations of Pakistan, Bangladesh, and the Muslims living in India today, what would their total representation be versus the Hindu population? Would it be really so overwhelming that the Hindus would put the Muslims down and not give them any rights? What was the total Muslim population versus the Hindus before the partition? It should also be noted that there is also a Christian presence in southern India and a Sikh presence. Sikhs ar
  9. The cost of labor and relaxed labor laws in countries such as China and Vietnam has played a huge role in the decline of American Manufacturing. There is no denying this. You have to understand, not all companies send these jobs overseas to fill their own pockets. It is because they are left with no other choice. If companies kept manufacturing jobs in the United States and paid their employees $7.25, $8.25, $8.75, $9.00 hourly, which is only minimum wage so their pay would likely be a lot higher than this, the cost of the total product they sell to the American public would skyrocket. At the
  10. That is another problem that must be fixed. If you have campaign regulations and limit political contributions, there would be no incentive for our president and men and women in congress to bail out those big boys. But sadly they will never do that since it will be of no benefit to them.
  11. Firstly it depends on what area of the world we are talking about. There is no perfect economic model out there. Impoverished people which you mentioned exist everywhere. Socialism, Communism, Capitalism. They work in certain places and fail in others. After the fall of the Soviet Union, they tried "Shock Therapy" in Russia, it failed. Socialism and Communism may work in Cuba and China but it won't work in the United States or any other Western nation. A nation's constitution, laws of the land, regulations all factor into it as well. If we want to fix the United States economic system for
  12. You have to find yourself first. Do what truly interests you and makes you happy. Something that you are extremely passionate about which will uplift you. Something which you run towards because you want it really bad. Scheduling your studies is easy but you have to have the heart and pride factor before that. Otherwise you won't be happy or "want" to do it. We all have different talents and are unique in that regard. We have to find out what those talents are first.
  13. Someone who's spent so much time and money trying to become something deserves to be fairly compensated for their hard work. Human nature in that case would mean them getting upset, because they worked so hard only to earn the same living wage as a first timer working at Mcdonalds who didn't work as hard. In other words, they would feel they deserve more and rightfully so.
  14. I have been to Boston. It was while back but near the Quincy Market in Downtown Boston, there was a Panera Bread or a Starbucks where some Sisters working in the back room were wearing the Hijab. So my guess would be they would not mind.
