There's no such thing as a truly free market.

9fc76 No.823

False, regulation is still socialism because you are forcing businesses to operate in such a way that the free market would not. It is still state control of the means of production as the 'private' entities must comply with government regulation, giving the government control over how the entity operates. It would be like saying that you can have any car you want (capitalism), as long as it meets our standards (socialism). That is not a capitalist economic model, it is socialist control over private entities.

4a7b5 No.825

No. Socialism is control of the means of production. Some minor constitutional democratic representative republic measures is not inherently socialist. The same way ethics are not Christian morality.

Government itself is not socialist in nature. It's just government. Capitalist markets are still capitalist markets, there are just certain minimum benchmarks and standards for reasonable safety. That is most definitely not the same thing as socialism. The same way government representatives are not inherently fascist for being singular representatives with veto power instead of committees.

Regulation is not inherently socialist. However, socialists like using regulation and bureaucracy to continually tighten the noose, drag people through the coals and bread crumb them and penalize them into doing what they want for the sake of ideology.

So I'd say the difference between socialism and minarchism is the government only does what is absolutely required of it when no private or personal means is rational or reasonable, and socialism is voluntarily surrendering personal responsibility and capitalism in favor of political ideology.

It is through this relationship that socialists continuously try and seize more and more power and control away from individuals so they can't tell where their money goes, or even say no. Stating more and more things should be human rights, and so that gives government power over those things, trumping private business and taxing the fuck out of both industry and private citizens in order to make their hare brained schemes possible. That I find to be completely unacceptable.

They just want so hard to live in a ridiculous rainbow and glitter sprinkled Star Trekian universe, where the federated powers hold ALL the power and individuals dance to the tune of whatever arbitrary declarations made to them.

9fc76 No.829

Regulation, at its core, is imposing the standards of people through the government upon the free market. Socialism, at its core, is the imposition of the standards of the people through government seizure of the means of production. While not as direct, government controls and regulation have a similar result to nationalization insofar as the moral idea of imposing the will of state/majority upon a free market. To a certain extent I suppose you are right, but as you later put, if you can morally justify regulation, you can morally justify nationalization further down the line. Any law or regulation that is necessary would be selected out (for example a company that had poor safety standards would find itself with a smaller, more desperate, or higher cost labor pool, and would be undercut by competitors offering better safety standards).

4a7b5 No.831

The difference is regular old standards SHOULD ideally merely be used in the interests of public health, whereas in socialism they are actively used as a legal truncheon to attack, control and rob from private individuals and corporations. They do not see any line between corporations and private individuals and the government, the state has the inherent right to do whatever they want because they are the state, and there are near to no real concrete tethers to make sure the state isn't being used that way.

It's still not inherently socialistic to have health standards for being able to sell food. Standards that are created by as close to objective scientific necessity is just good sense in public policy, erring on the side of the state only when it'd be a hazard not to.

Whereas with socialism, it's not just the occasional pipe up, it's deliberately crafting health codes so individuals make "better choices" by making sodas cost $10 per 8 oz as "luxuries", trying to morally tax meats out of the market or make it increasingly less and less profitable to produce cattle, poultry or mutton until those businesses have to shut down. But it's all, "in the name of health." Like the WHO would have you believe, effectively not being vegetarian or vegan is a form of violence against not just 3rd world peoples, but the planet, and so meat eating has to go.

Socialism is arbitrary government ideology passing itself off as "the greater good," through legitimized force. If individual rights or businesses aren't part of that "greater good" and the morals and beliefs of said socialist dictators or "representatives" (heads of the party) then they can be quashed and ignored. Or the people re-educated to see what they're doing as exceptions, not violations.

Legitimate representative government with checks, balances and laws is not inherently socialist, else the Berkley nutters would stop crowing about capitalist immorality and talking about America having so much democracy it's detrimental to progress.

Like many fans of Jim Davis’ erotica I’ve been waiting for a continuation of Fertile Valley for, admittedly, far too long. Davis wrote 12 chapters, and unfortunately never returned to the story. For years I’ve toyed with the idea of continuing the erotica, postponing it until now. I haven’t made a complete outline yet, but I’m thinking of adding seven/eight chapters, giving the story a proper end.

Note that - like the original - the story will have pregnancy, incest, pre-teen (consensual) sex, breast/penis expansion and cum inflation. If any of these are not to your liking, perhaps this work is not for you. This is a work of fiction and is by no means a justification of pedophilia.

Davis' original: http://www.asstr.org/~Kristen/fv/
My continuation:

Please let me know what you think, and share any ideas/comments you have. I hope you enjoy the story.

Hello everyone,

I'm sorry for not having posted here in quite a while - I'm trying once more now, hoping the message comes through.

Thank you all for the support, criticism, and most of all, your patience. This story has been quite an undertaking: at times frustrating, but ultimately rewarding to write. I hope you enjoy (and have enjoyed) my contribution to Davis' fantastic original.

Chapter 19 is out, and with that monster out of the way only the epilogue remains.

So we've now got the latest Pokémon games coming out, and at the same time pretty much destroying any chance for Pokémon Z to finish Gen 6 (despite all the hinting at it).

I'm personally hoping they finally take their foot off the gas as far as the PokéDex goes. I don't mind a couple of new Legendaries or new starters, but let's stick mostly with what exists already (it was enough of a chore to finish the National Dex in Gen 5).

What does everyone else think about what's coming up?

The problem with Volt Tackle being exclusive to Pikachu is that Pikachu is already given so much undeserved favoritism. Pikachu is utterly worthless without the Light Ball (which essentially gives it Huge Power+) as all of its stats are trash save for its speed, which is just an average base 90 (which is slower than Charizard's base 100). Its Light-Ball dependency limits its potential to just a low-tier sweeper. Having other Pokemon (like Zebrastrika or Electivire) be able to learn it would not only make those Pokemon better, but it would mean that the move would see proper use.

Having many Pokemon with signature moves in a given generation is not new (just about half of Generation I Pokemon have one or more signature moves, and Generation III and VI have quite a few too). Also, Carvanha and Lilipup can learn Psychic Fangs through breeding (although Lilipup requires some Smeargle shenanigans to do it). There have also been many former signature moves (like Pain Split, Parting Shot, and Vacuum Wave) that are far better on other Pokemon than their original possessors.

212c2 No.655

I know Psychic Fangs can be bred to Carvanha and Lillipup, but I'm sure there's a lot of other things with sharp teeth that would probably love that move.

As far as things in Gen 1, don't forget that there was no breeding to pass moves around (plus I can't imagine anything from back then other than Cubone or Marowak using Bone Club or Bonemerang, so at the time, that one was justified). They also were working with some serious data limits back in Gen 1 and 2 (it took using a new compression technique to even finish programming Johto, and by chance it allowed them to put Kanto in G/S/C) so they just could not program large movepools at the time (still, I hate that some things that evolve with stones get NOTHING by level after they evolve, they should really fix that).

I guess a lot of it is trial and error by Game Freak, trying to see how things work and go from there (generally this is where the Move Tutors or mid-generation changes in movepools come into play). Still, I bet there are at least a few slow Rocks that wouldn't mind Accelrock to catch stuff off-guard, and definitely Psychic Fangs could use more coverage than it does now.

8451f No.657

The whole thing with Pokemon not learning moves after using a stone is deliberate, as stupid as it is. Game Freak wants people to delay evolution and use the non-evolved forms for longer. The animated series made a point about that during the Lt. Surge arc. It essentially goes back to the "power of friendship" nonsense that Japanese media loves to push (yes Japan, we know you are a collectivist culture with the family as the basic unit of society rather than the individual, but you need not push it so hard). So it is unlikely that will change, as much as that policy sucks. I also realize that Volt Tackle will likely always be exclusive to Pikachu, despite my wishes, because Game Freak will continue to shove that thing into everything because it is their mascot.

118a7 No.658

I like the incentive to not evolve pokemon right away. It's good game design.

8451f No.659

Of course, One could just expend a bunch of Heart Scales by having the Move Reminder teach all of the moves the Pokemon really needs to know before evolving, which makes that point moot. The Move Reminder was made much more useful this Generation, and Heart Scales are pretty easy to find.

Something I have noticed since I became a pregfetish artist, is that most of my followers, starting with my husband, love dinosaurs, military stuff and cars. It's a remarkably strong pattern. Any input on why this may be the case?

because those are masculine interests, and men have very basic, primal interests.

Among them, food, fighting nature (represented by The Apex of Struggles- the biggest animal around you can kill for status and food), things to stimulate the need for utility and curiosity (technology), and violence.

It's kind of why rock and metal are what they are. It's just letting the male brain and imagination run loose. And a man is a man. Making babies is one of those things you don't admit to out of fear it'll horrify your lady friends into thinking you are something you aren't.

The vore community is so weird. You would think pregnant predators would be more of a thing since they are the most voracious fuckers on the planet, but I see more pregnant prey scenarios than the reverse.

Maybe I'm just looking in the wrong place?

de8e0 No.450

Sadly you are not. I blame certain people for making countless of pregnant prey stories and alike that boost it. Wont call names though since it may seem like hatemail or alike.
I just believe the more one artists does draw/write of a concept, the more other Artists share to do the same concept. Maybe just me thinking though.- that being said:
I now and then did post several stuff on Pregnant Preds, but mostly on Ekas Portal.
Dont really feel like posting again here since most of the older stuff has very low quality.

You are not alone and I feel the same way. There is some content out there too.
Heck, I have a few ideas of my own that would be preg-pred stories, but I just don't have enough time to write them down (yet alone keep updating the series that i already started…)

ceb8a No.454

Lol my bad. I'm not the worst but I'm totally a name that could be named.

But yeah, when one person draws or writes something they like then it does tend to inspire people with similar interests. I suggest trying to create or commission more pregnant pred scenarios to inspire others.

some who mostly cater to my own interests, so unaware/accidental vore, (mostly) non-lethal, all oral, same-size, could be human or furry.

I wrote one story that definitely hinted at it, I will at some point write some up who are more straight foward with it.

I don't wanna go into more detail, because that would spoil the stories themselves.
