kek, this communist made a java program for a planned economy as a school project.

/gnussr/res/206.html#304
For my final AP computer science project I made an app in Java for a simple planned economy based on Cockshott's work. However I had to do some work arounds to methodology so I wouldn't get marked off for complexity

This is how OO programming works. You're not supposed to be directly manipulating the object's internal data, you're supposed to do it indirectly. In Java, the most common way for this is through getter/setter methods.

Nolan Thomas

BSD is true freedom
If by freedom you mean in the sense of ultimate freedom the freedom that that allows you to take away the freedom of others then yes the BSD and MIT have more freedom.

But is it fair if you can take the freedom of others ?
Does having the freedom to take freedom truly freedom ?
The GPL has this superiority/neutrality that no license has.
It doesn't leave anyone behind.

Isaiah Reyes

first, it's not true, look at how it's done in Python, and it's closer to true OO than Java, which is shit.
second, OOP is shit anyway.

Chase Bell
Chase Bell

Python's way is a better implementation of the same principle, and it can't be used in Java. There is no alternative in Java to getters and setters that's more OO-compliant, so if you want to properly orient all your objects in Java you'll have to write that boilerplate.

James Myers

Did you ever ask yourself why you would do it that way? All you say is cultist shit "It's the OO way" "It's OO compliant".

99% of the time the getters and setters do nothing. They make messy verbose code. It would take you less time to edit all the code that accesses the given field after turning it private from public than it would to type out all the getting and setting in the first place.
Moreover, and this is important, after you turn a field from public to private and make a getter/setter you SHOULD look at all the code that accesses that variable, because it was written under the assumption that getting and setting does nothing besides the obvious and that change might have made the code incorrect.

When was the last time you wrote a getter or setter that does something?

Robert Perez

Nathaniel Brown

He's just lying
Thanks for all the proof that you're not providing.
If the GPL was communism their would be some mandatory clause saying that you are forced to give it for free and you can't ask money or other services for it.
And it's not, with the GPL you limit corporate monopolies in a which in returns allows other companies to services people with computing.

This user, please put it on github. I know it's just your (high school?) school project, but it makes a statement.

I appreciate you all taking an interest in my work, however I just wanted to clear up the water.

This was simply a school project I made for a final grade in the class. It is based off the work of Allin Cottrell and Paul Cockshott from their book "Towards a New Socialism" which you can read here: http://ricardo.ecn.wfu.edu/~cottrell/socialism_book/new_socialism.pdf

I highly suggest it even if you're not a socialist, it gives some interesting proposals for how a future society can potentially work with modern computers.

I would appreciate it if you kept the discussion surrounding my work civil.

Also, this project was created to replicate what a socialist economy would look like in a game form - i.e. I made it particularly simple and left out linear optimization and iterative calculations for labor coefficients because it would have taken too much work for a simple school project

Gabriel Lopez

The main characteristics of imageboards are that they're anonymous, unfiltered, and rude. People don't have an identity and therefore don't have a reputation to ruin, and moderation is often loose, so people just say what they want to. If someone thinks something is shit they're going to say so.
That's actually really useful and refreshing once you get used to it, but you do have to get used to it first, and if you don't yet "get" the culture it's very noticeable. That's why people tell you to lurk, to just read for a while until you understand the way the community works before you start posting.

Cameron Harris
Cameron Harris

I would imagine that an economics program would be much more complicated with its model. Does Cockshott simplify the entire agricultural economy into one variable? That's what I mean. Its not worth those posts for something that doesn't appear to scratch the surface of that work. Write it in C and make it do something thats a much more complete representation of that work and its something more interesting to look at.

I imagine that the kinds of people on the /leftypol/ related boards have a very different culture, because its full of Reddit immigrants isn't it? Its clear that you guys are outsiders to the community here. Lurk more and learn how people post, you have to discard your ego and realize that there is no reason or need for consideration, only honestly, when there are no consequences to your reputation for your posts.

Zachary White
Zachary White

Write it in C
I don't think Java is a good choice (although it was probably mandatory for his assignment), but why C?

Grayson Turner
Grayson Turner

Cockshott certainly does not reduce it to one variable, and neither do I even. I have four main variables governing the game:

Indirect Labor Time
Direct Labor Time
Clearing Price
Net Worth

Even with these, it is still an oversimplification of Cockshott's work because I made this as a game to get an A on a school project, not to reinvent modern economics. I just wanted to share my work because I thought the people on that board would find it interesting to know that something like this does exist.

In one of the last chapters of one of Cockshott's latest books "Classical Econophysics" the pseudo code for how the planned system should work is actually there if you want to take a look.

Hunter Harris
Hunter Harris

Because C is more fun to write than Java and is a nicer language.

Well, it really looks like you got shoved in the spotlight without a great reason, so everybody is talking about your work, even though its not something that stands up on its own. Maybe you'll have something with more merit later.

It sounds like you're just not used to simple things being simple to do. Python is explicit, compared to most other languages at the same abstraction level. That's even part of Python's semi-official philosophy.

Blake Gutierrez
Blake Gutierrez

the implicit-ness is what makes it more complicated than it has to be. This is because nothing is labeled as what it is, this is derived from the operations applied to it. This means instead of looking for the highlighted type names, i have to look at the operations and guess.

With operator overloading I don't know what the operators will do just by looking at it. More guesswork.

This isnt simplicity; lowering the amount of things in the syntax makes it more complicated because there is less information than there should be.

Benjamin Ross
Benjamin Ross

businesses can figure out how much to charge for things according to how many rescources they ultimately them cost but a planned economy could never do the same thing, with the aid of computers
Come on now, even the wikipedia article for the calculation problem points out cockshott as one of its criticisms, on grounds that its not such a problem with computation. Im not even in favor of the centralization thatd be required for it, but thats not addressing it at all.

Camden Bailey
Camden Bailey

It's a question of scale and complexity
You need an adaptive tracking control system for a non-linear system of an innumerable amount of state variables

This question is simple;
In cases where a resource can be copied a GPL type of system is the best since the true price of the resource after begin initially created are little to nothing. In cases where a resource is limited (like land) true freedom should exist for the owner since others must deny you use of it to use it themselves.

How do you decide who gets to use limited resources? Force. To the winner go the spoils. Life isn't fair.

Gabriel Gomez

That's actually not an bad idea. You could set up dedicated service for web page retrieval and send plain HTML with pre-rendered dynamic content to the client. Doesn't Stallman actually does something like this already?

You do realise just how much of a viral license the GPL is right? if someone uses a single line of GPL code or even links to GPL code (the exception being system calls if I remember correctly) they have to open source their entire program. Whats even worse though is that it doesn't even effectively protect against large corporations wrongly using GPL code (see: any of the numerous violations of the GPL by Chinese manufacturers) since the only groups which have the resources to fight the massive court cases and actually care are companies whose entire business model is blackmailing over such things. Meanwhile small companies who can't fight such battles simply choose to not use GPL code and because of it are at a disadvantage. By using the GPL you are actively choosing to make it harder for small software companies to compete with the likes of Google, Microsoft, etc.

Outside of the Linux kernel the the majority of the widely used open source programs (LLVM, Docker, Apache, etc) use more permissive licenses such as BSD, MIT, Apache, and LGPL. If Docker and Apache were GPL very few people would use them due to the nature of the GPL license.

If you are concerned about people or companies taking your code and claiming it as their own then you should use the LGPL license. Since it doesn't require users to open source their entire program your code will get used more and by companies who will likely end up paying you to maintain it if your code is useful enough.

It takes more than a single line.
Calling it "viral" is very misleading, because it doesn't "infect" a codebase. You have to deliberately introduce GPLed code into it, and you can take it out again. Not like a virus at all. Stop swallowing literal Microsoft propaganda.
Whats even worse though is that it doesn't even effectively protect against large corporations wrongly using GPL code (see: any of the numerous violations of the GPL by Chinese manufacturers) since the only groups which have the resources to fight the massive court cases and actually care are companies whose entire business model is blackmailing over such things.
It doesn't always work, but making the shit those Chinese manufacturers do legal would hardly be an improvement.
Meanwhile small companies who can't fight such battles simply choose to not use GPL code and because of it are at a disadvantage. By using the GPL you are actively choosing to make it harder for small software companies to compete with the likes of Google, Microsoft, etc.
I don't think Google and Microsoft are in the habit of violating the GPL. They actually really dislike the GPL, which means it's doing its job.
Outside of the Linux kernel the the majority of the widely used open source programs (LLVM, Docker, Apache, etc) use more permissive licenses such as BSD, MIT, Apache, and LGPL. If Docker and Apache were GPL very few people would use them due to the nature of the GPL license.
How many of the people who use Docker and Apache do things with them that would violate the GPL? Do you have any examples?
You do realize that copyleft only triggers the moment you distribute your modified version, right? The GPL wouldn't bother you when you're just using Docker. It would bother you if you created a proprietary fork called NuDockerPlus™ and tried to sell it, though.

Lincoln White

The GPL is only as viral as copyright law. Nobody forces anybody to take another's GPL code into their own codebase and then subsequently distribute it.

If small American companies are able to get patents for their inventions, then small American companies are also able to ask the court for an injunction over the importing of these copyright violating Chinese imports.
