POLITICAL EFFECTS OF TIME TRAVEL ?

 
 
Reply Tue 2 Jan, 2007 07:52 pm
If I had an effective vehicle of time travel,
I 'd take my .44 special revolver back to the early 1830s in Germany,
and put a few hollowpointed rounds into Karl Marx 's face n groin,
b4 he caused any trouble with his publishing.

On the way back to 2007 ( after reloading )
I 'd stop in Sarajevo on the morning of June 28, 1914
and put a hollowpointed round into the lower abdomin
of Gavrilo Princip, while he was munching on a sandwich
outside Schiller 's Cafe, thereby obviating the First World War,
the Second World War ( which was predicated upon WWI )
and the Third World War of all communist revolutions
and communist invasions, including the Korean War,
Vietnam, Pol Pot and his communist skull pyramids in Cambodia,
Castro 's enslaving Cuba; too many to name.

Taking out Marx n Princip wud have saved the lives of
many, many tens of millions of innocent people
( 20,000,000 in Red China alone ).



However, in so doing, I 'd also screw myself out of my HDTV,
and we probably wud not have reached the Moon yet,
in that these events resulted from technological innovation
on an emergency basis, because of the defensive needs of
the Second and Third World Wars.



It wud be a sacrifice.

Wud it be worth it,
to save the deaths, pain,
and enslavements of so many millions of folks
during 3 world wars ?

Would you mind going back to 1999 and taking out George W. Bush?- that would save a lot of lives, tax money and probably prevent WWIII.

It is too late to prevent WWIII.
It ended on Christmas Eve of 1991.


I never liked the Bushes,
but it is not worth killing them.

W saved us from the horror of Algore.

You would be killed before you got a chance to kill Marx.

Princip was not an author.

Without him,

What is your reasoning ?

Because if you killed Marx you may have set in motion the wheels for an even more ruthless dictator. Thus, when you tried to return to the future you will have found it dramatically altered or even destroyed!

Even better, give him the Invisibility Cloak. Can't see him, can't shoot him.

We can turn into a kind of superhero, fighting time travaling NRA members.

A Karl Marx superhero comic book.

Actually, if you go back in time and kill Marx you would travel forward into another universe of reality but the universe you left behind would remain unaffected. This falls in line with relativity and a host of things that I don't even want to try to explain as I don't comprehend them fully myself. In any case, David, why don't you try this little experiment and come back and tell us about it.
