We've eliminated predators
I'm sure that groups like Boko Haram, ISIS and the rest would be surprised to hear they've been eliminated. They do a lot of preying while they're praying.
If you need examples, ask every victim of every revolution or warzone who suddenly had saw their rights disappear when the men with guns showed up.
Their rights didn't disappear, their rights were denied. Infringed. Interfered with.
Governments don't give rights. Governments impose limits on them, or protect against that happening. But they don't create them. Hopefully you're not confusing rights with entitlements like so many people do.
I you have my back! ZERO-DEGREES of!
I like back bacon.
As far as facebook goes, the point of 6 degrees is a hypothetical favor network. A friend is someone you can aska fvor from. maybe a small favor like an introduction. that's why the concept of degrees of separation makes sense. Facebook freinds are not freinds. In some case facbook can be useful for tracing the spread of social disease however.
Empirically, things like Scratch are great learning tools. I taught my kids with it and then they went on to writing code. But they had all the mechanics worked out along with understanding of things like event dispatch, arrays, conditionals, string parsing, algorithms, the X-Y coordinate systems of the window. SO saying this is just sugar coated fruitloops is nuts.
At the other end of the spectrum with things like Labview many scientists can go a whole career without having to code. it's a fantastic language once you accept it's constraints. Extremely good for both rapid prototyping and embedded instruments. It is the only language I would trust to edit in the middle of an experiment. You won't be writing a word processor or accounting system in it but it's not meant for that. But it's not sugar coated in what is meant for. The results are not a Toy.
You'll find that your idea of "rights" disappears quite quickly as soon as any functioning society breaks down.
My "idea" of rights exists at any scale and under any circumstances. That's the entire point. Irrational people do indeed look to take advantage circumstances in which they feel willing to take the chance that their use of violence will go unchallenged because of unpleasant or unexpected circumstances. Which doesn't change the fact that they lose their claim to life when they deny you yours. That's the right you naturally have: to use (or have used on your behalf) the violence necessary to defend your life. Why? Because rational people don't kill other people except in self defense. Those who initiate the violence waive their rights to live in peace.
You're confusing having a right with happening to have the power to defend it at some particular time. These are not the same thing.
Like bitcoin only a certain amount of my poop is minted each day. It's cant be forged because it's loaded with my DNA. and when I die theres a maximum amount that will be in circulation. Like cash it's not traceable. You can divide it finely. Anybody want to invest?
Exactly, because in the jungle there are no rights
Oh, I get it now. You think that human beings aren't any different in their cognitive abilities, capacity for reason, and ability to think abstractly and communicate than are, say, tigers or lemurs.
I don't need it, but I need a government to tell others that.
No, you can tell them yourself, and if they are too irrational to digest the concept, and you're too weak to defend against violent, irrational people, then you need a government to help you protect your rights.
In a modern society arms are useless.
Really? Then why does every single political leader - across the spectrum, including flaming lefty tyrants, eastern European strongmen, laid-back Scandinavian royalty and elected officials, mayors of cities, etc. - have armed protection at their disposal?
Why do police departments train in the use of arms? Why do militaries, even strictly defensive ones, understand the need to be able to use arms?
It's nice for you that you live in a fantasy world where there is no need for a 90-pound woman to ever defend herself against a man three times her size. Where is it, exactly, that you live that there are absolutely no violent people, no robberies, no rapes, no crimes that endanger lives? Please be specific, and if you would, please link to some reports that show your zero crime rate. Not that you will, of course, because you're full of it, and you know it.
There's no future in time travel.
