    We would be in roughly the same situation regardless of the economic philosophy...well, unless we had adopted mercantilism. That could have slowed down or stopped globalization, but even that couldn't have stopped technological innovation. Machines are replacing humans in the workforce and that's only going to get worse.
    "We grow up thinking that beliefs are something to be proud of, but they're really nothing but opinions one refuses to reconsider. Beliefs are easy. The stronger your beliefs are, the less open you are to growth and wisdom, because "strength of belief" is only the intensity with which you resist questioning yourself. As soon as you are proud of a belief, as soon as you think it adds something to who you are, then you've made it a part of your ego."

    Labeling austrian economics as libertarianism is one thing. To say it's wrong is another.

    If you're going to argue that case you'd best do it better than just linking to some article of a book which so happens to be hosted on the "International Branch of the British Labour Party's website.


    The Cost of Inequality’ shows that the market capitalism of the last 30 years has been an enormous scam. A dodgy brand of free-market economics achieved an undeserved intellectual hegemony which has served to legitimise a Right-wing project of shrinking the state, zapping the unions and turning a new generation of robber barons into masters of the universe.

    LOL. People actually take this source seriously???? LOL


    political spin doctors who have no idea of economics, all up in this *****.

    Libertarianism is to blame for the counter revolution which created the conditions for the financial crisis and political coup we're now living with.
    Many people cannot perceive the propaganda that support these ideologies. The new branding of propaganda is literally "public relations" which is now a well developed and effective science. Those with the financial resources to manufacture consent are successful in getting people to work against even their own interests in order to better serve the interests of those with the financial backing.

    Propaganda like a Labour Party website promoting a political screed?

    "work against their interests" how? By having a job and being paid? Or by voting for someone you don't like? Why are people supposed to vote their supposed economic interest, anyway? I don't. I vote based on my political ideology, which is rooted in my intellect and life experience. Voting yourself goodies is TRULY greedy and wrong.

    Lark is still a second-rate hack of a troll. Either that, or one of the most disturbingly single-minded, obsessive posters I've ever come across online.

    Would it be wrong to vote for programs that help you get a job and being paid? Or is that part of voting yourself goodies and being TRULY greedy and wrong?

    I'm talking about voting for policies that cause structural violence against oppressed groups whether or not one belongs to that group. It is significant when people are manipulated into voting for programs that will cut off access to medical help, education, employment, etc. When we vote in favor of our own interests we vote in favor of our children, our mothers, our grandparents and neighbors. Someone voting in favor of medical care or sustenance is not truly greedy and wrong but is someone who comprehends their own human rights.

    It is helpful to research structural violence and the results of extreme imbalances in wealth distribution.
