And how is it different from anarchism, liberalism, conservatism, and socialism?

This is a horribly unclear and rambling answer.

In addition to the overall answer being of poor quality, you managed to sneak some Nazi propaganda into a completely unrelated topic:"You can compare this as Jews in Germany being libertarian, and the Nazis exterminating them being Conservative. Jews have the power as they held 90% of the wealth as they ran all the businesses, but the Conservatives held the true wealth. This analogy works well for every situation. "

What the hell? This is a terribly confused metaphor that neither describes the current situation, nor the situation in Germany. Jews did not control 90% of the wealth, nor did they control the majority of businesses. In the U.S. right now, Libertarians represent such a small portion of the population both in terms of wealth and number of people that they do not represent 90% of anything on the national scale. Also, Conservatives are not trying to kill Libertarians systematically in order to maintain their genetic purity...

You're right. I didn't know that Mensa people could be happy. I always thought that having an IQ 160 would make someone sad.

Upon speaking to him on Facebook, I find that he needs counselling. Because he lives in Indonesia, and is troubled by all the corruption, violence and racial hatred around him, it has made him into a jealous and insecure person. He tells me that every time he walks out his house, he sees homeless children begging, and them getting their money robbed off them. I had to talk to him some sense and analyse him.

The entry requirements for a Mensan is that they are above the 98th percentile and standard tests at the moment make that 148.

There are lot of happy Mensans and there are a lot of happy Indonesians.

Oh really?

1. Yes they did! Jews controlled most of the wealth at the time after WWII. I can look up the exact figure if you want, and it was a lot. They also owned most of the businesses too.

2. Conservatives are increasing the rich and poor divide, and decreasing social mobility. This prevents people from getting an education, starting a business, and it prevents intelligent people from getting on in life. Conservatives are not trying to maintain their genetic purity. You're right about that. But they are trying to make life harder for everyone except the rich.

The student protests in Britain were trigged by Conservatives tripling student fees and artificially reducing places in university by making sure that they never filled up their vacancies. How many intelligent people are missing out of an education because of that? How many libertarians and would be libertarians have they taken out the game?

I don't think it is helpful to tell people to look up figures to prove the point you want to make. Why not provide links to these figures yourself?

What's an assertion, and what should I type in?

Compesh is a question and answer (and debate) website, so before you make a debate, you better learn what an assertion is. I suppose you already know what a question is, and that you've typed it in the box. ;)

An assertion, is basically a statement you can make, that is either true or false.

Richer people have better health.

The question for that would be, Do richer people have better health?

And don't forget to make your assertion, match your question.
