There is no quidance in your kingdom
Your wicked walk in Babylon
There is no wisdom to your freedom
The richest man in babylon

Your beggars sleep outside your doorway
Your prophets leave to wonder on
You fall asleep at night with worry
The saddest man in Babylon

The wicked stench of exploitation
Hangs in the air and fingers on
Beneath the praise and admiration
The weakest man in Babylon

There is no hope left in your kingdom
Your servants have burned all their songs
Nobody here remembers freedom
The richest man in Babylon

They play shows with numerous live musicians, often more than five or six.

"Your beggars sleep outside your doorway" - that reminds me of a recent news story that sums up the Thatcherite zeitgeist in the UK.

Ditto.

From my long and painful experience on Usenet, I can say for sure that when messages on a forum are simply personal duels of no interest to any bystanders, they serve no useful purpose to either duellist or bystander, and should be knocked on the head. The difference between web fora and Usenet being that you can use killfiles in the latter.

Wouldn't it depend on which goods and services people are consuming and going to be paying taxes on, as well as the tax rates? If for instance you're heavily taxing consumption of food and lightly taxing patio furniture or garden supplies, that consumption tax likely won't be progressive. The poor are poor, rdo, but they still consume--so I don't see how you can make the claim that "If you are poor, you would not pay taxes at all." 

As far as I can tell from Robert Costanza's review of "Luxury Fever" on Amazon, Robert Frank would not tax savings at all and would not specify which types of consumption fall into the "luxury" category--meaning apparently that the consumption tax would be a flat tax since it would not impose different rates on different types of goods. I don't have much knowledge about this matter but I believe European nations have something like this in the form of the value-added tax (VAT) which in the post-WWII era has deterred some private consumption and promoted private savings and investment in public goods and services. 

But the US economy is built on private consumption; switching away from that would be painful. And as Byronape (and Paul Krugman, Brad DeLong and yes even Larry Summers in unguarded moments) points out, our economy is still in such a lowered state that it needs more fiscal stimulus to promote private consumption. As for a revamped tax code taxing consumption and exempting various types of savings, rdo, I invite you to tax a good look at the Federal 1040 instruction booklet the next time you do your income taxes. That rat warren of rules, exceptions, allowances, exemptions, etc. is a political document, the product of lobbying by all sorts of groups. An ideal tax code based on Frank's best ideas would get revamped and reshaped to make sure that the rich and powerful wound up paying less in the end. Even if you did wind up with acceptable policy, would you have the same amount of tax revenue to pay for government goods and services?

"I can't spell it all out here."

Try. Seriously. You want serious, substantive discussion on RP boards? STEP UP, 'CAUSE IT'S YOUR TURN.

That "I can't spell it all out here" reminds me of a Georgetown Law graduate living nearby who would pronounce idiotic opinions on legal matters and then try to cover his ass by concluding "It would take too long to explain." Seeing him use that line repeatedly made me LMAO. It was a real sign of laziness and a tacit admission that he didn't know what he was talking about. Not a good thing for someone looking to get paid for winning arguments based on logic and legal precedence. 

Summarize Robert Frank's "Luxury Fever" if you want. That'd be a good start. The Internet actually has enough room for your thoughts, rdo.   {#Yell}


"It is more of a poke at socialism, to be sure.  Yes, it implies sexual license.  You need not investigate far to know this is a central doctrine of most socialism."
 
Wait...what? I call bullshit. 

"Students are screwed out of their money.  I know I was." 

The past is slowly brought into the light of day...You might as well tell us what you studied; I'm assuming you're referring to a grad school program or something like a JD.  

"To the hundreds of passive participants out there who feel they need to make some dumb interuption every time the conversation turns political, Please hold back that ugre and instead say something original of your own." 

Rather than CRAPPING on Stratocaster and others who may want to just hang out and have some fun on these boards, why not draw them into your attempts to start up more involved conversations, rdo? Or just ignore the comments that don't interest you? I thought Slippery's comment (the one that started you off here) made good points. He was hardly wallowing in "isms." 

You really don't have to be a bomb-throwing jerk to get RPers to talk intelligently about stuff, buddy.

I'd like to listen, per chance to comment, but the play button (Safari Version 6.0.5 (7536.30.1)) doesn't work and the iTunes Radio entry keeps rebuffing.

It's like being in a casino with no money.

Do lyrics count?  Did it occur to you that the discussion related to the song lyrics?   Did you, by chance, notice the band's name?
I am sick and tired of all these jerks who rarely have anything else to say other than "shut up".   I am unfamiliar with anything you, Stratocaster, have ever said about this song or any other song.  Which means, that you are a passive participant at best, and unless you actually have anything to say about the song, then I suggest you buzz off. 
If you want to talk about the song, what is stopping you?  The are literally thousands upon thousands of postings that say nothing at all about the song other than a brief approval or disapproval, or pictures of the performers.  Hardly anyone complains.  So why disrupt real comments taking place on a comment board?  Do you go to casinos and complain when you see gambling?   To the hundreds of passive participants out there who feel they need to make some dumb interuption every time the conversation turns political, Please hold back that ugre and instead say something original of your own.

Or, maybe the "isms" you hate so much represent a valid form of thought that differers from their own.  To assume that they are used by "profs looking to screw their students" not only implies that any person working in higher education cares less about the subject they are teaching, or teaching in general, than they do about their own interests.  Coming from a family full of teachers, I find this idea horribly offensive.  No one, and I mean NO ONE, gets into education to make money.  For their level of education (which they have to pay for out of pocket), they are highly underpaid.  But maybe you mean "screw" as a verb, as in to sleep with...

  
The consumption tax would definitely be progressive.  You are a quick one to jump to conclusions.    If you are poor, you would not pay taxes at all.   I can't spell it all out here.  Robert H. Frank does a fine job in "Luxury Fever".  I think you are looking for arguments where we don't really have any.  I like the fact that you wrote this, though.  As for the "screw" remark...it does have a double meaning, but not quite in the sense that you make it out to be.  It is more of a poke at socialism, to be sure.  Yes, it implies sexual license.  You need not investigate far to know this is a central doctrine of most socialism.  I think any teacher advocating a violent socialist revolution is not teaching at all, but demagoguing.  Big difference.  It's a poke at capitalism too.   Students are screwed out of their money.  I know I was.  I like teachers though.  Give me a break.  Enough.   (BTW...I have clipped off most of your reply in the interest of saving page space only, not out of disrespect for your argument).

As for a consumption tax, of course you think it's a good thing.  It's a tax that does not ever touch any kind of savings, investments, or real estate purchases unless sold at a profit.  Considering that only the wealthy have the disposable income for investments or real estate speculative purchases, this allows them to get even more wealthy free of any additional tax.  However, the poor, or even middle class, have to struggle to save and would end up paying more for products and services.  I don't know about you, but I know a lot of people that can't afford to have their grocery bill go up or to pay more for gas than they already do.

Sure, a consumption tax CAN be good for an economy.  However, a consumption tax, in theory, would increase saving and lower spending.  However, in an economy as crippled as ours, spending should be encouraged to drive up demand.  Once demand goes up, so will employment.  Saving is a great way to assure long term fiscal viability, but what about those that cannot afford to save?  Right now, a large portion of the population spends all of their income on a week by week basis. 

The only people that can afford any additional tax right now are the wealthy and large corporations that have been dodging paying their fair share anyway.  As for the argument that taxing "the job creators" unfairly, consider that the only impact would be the record profits that many of these companies are bringing in currently.  I'm SO sorry if I'd rather have an extra $20 bucks in my pocket than give some company $20 million in tax brakes that will filter down to the investors who don't need the money nearly as bad as I do.

Geez, dunno Fred, were the tune a parody it would be humorous. Otherwise, IMHO, it is pretty derivative and not really doing anything all that interesting. I was always curious why artists whose primary message was leftie politics were often fairly conservative in their approach to their medium. I remember reading a left-wing critic explain that pushing the edges of the language of one's medium required a connoisseur's mentality and was as such essentially bourgeois. This, of course, was a very naughty thing as far as the writer was concerned. Could explain why Soviet Constructivism was such derivative and conservative a movement. As I said, dunno, but it is interesting. I'll check out the site, thanks.

Same here. An enjoyable cd from start to finish. The album is constructed as a "long player" with all songs part of a theme the band presents quite nicely. The packaging is creative as well, with the "lyrics" represented by a booklet of photos. A worthy purchase.
Groove, baby....

The album is very good, but doesn\'t even remotely approach the brilliance of the older stuff -- i\'ll take almost any cut off of Mirror Conspiracy against anything off Babylon. Then again, there\'s always an exception, and the title track from Babylon is it. Fantastic tune. Still... let\'s here a bit of Mirror Conspiracy, yes?
COOL!!!!! :roflol:
Good song the first 20 times I\'d heard it, which translates to 20 days in a row, but now it\'s getting tiresome. Time to move on with another cut. :roll:
RP could play Raggae all day long and I\'d be happy. :p
I kinda like this - I\'d like to hear some other stuff from these guys.
Yup, we all own this album now, and its great, so could you play some old T.C. and give the richest man in babylon a rest?? I swear you must play three tracks a day from this album. :frustrated:

It\'s nice to hear a reggae song other than the overplayed Bob Marley stuff. And a nice one at that. This is the kind of edge-of-genre music I expect out of RP. :clap:
