Out of nowhere you call me a hack for an agenda I’ve never advocated here or anywhere else and I’m the one that’s insulting? Maybe we could limit our future interaction to when there’s something substantive that can be directly referenced? That should make it really easy to avoid each other and any repetition of this nonsense.
hmmm.... too damn much work to look up references from years ago. You have a brother who was something like a European version of a John Bircher, but you were too good for that. You called Wilkow a screaming maniac or whatever,. If you don't like someone you are really very very damn condescending. Just what it seems to me, but what do I know.
Anyone who is a socialist who ignores common everyman economic realities like market choices made individually being fair use of individual income is imo a hack. Lots of good economists with lots of slightly variant socialist/governmental top down power/decision making theories that could be discussed. But Wilkow is pretty good at common sense, and questions who gives elites the right to decide for others, but you were so dismissive of his content, I concede it's useless to discuss the ideas.
people who are blind to the views of others can be pretty clever about their own ideas, but blind belief is the core of hackiness. I wonder where you will go to find abject victims for your condescension.
I bet you have a cool car, though. And how about the wines of Spain?
My wife is quite the ardent capitalist, Ayn Rand and all that..... but Mormons began as a kind of socialist without government support, people who had to help one another to get along. Brigham Young was the inspiration for Fed Chairman Eccles in Roosevelt days, and I sorta believe Karl Marx and maybe some Fabians listened to Mormon preachers extolling the call to Zion circa 1838-1855, when they really were preaching Utopian socialism
So I dunno. I like someone who can articulate ideas even if he talks loudly or passionately, even if he isn't exactly what I think already.
