    It's quaint that you think my arguments prove yours.
    You're attempt to cover your basic lack of understanding with eloquence fails every time.

    You guys can read your academics and hawk your theories all you want.
    And how did you come to know how the world actually works?

    I know you did, you dont even know what this says about you and that I've just set you up, again, and you've just conformed perfectly to highly predictable character flaws.

    I don't.

    Not fully.

    I read a shitload of news, worked in DC, lobbied within the financial industry, went to law school (for a while), and most importantly try to be a student of the present.

    Of what's going on right now.

    Yea I see the cracks in the system like everyone else, I just try to always remember that what we have now is better than what we've had before, and that what is likely to come in the future will more probably be an evolution of our current system than a revolution against it.

    I enjoy theory and prognostication as much as the next man, but as any scientist will tell you, I am a slave to what works in the real world.

    If this makes me a traditionalist, or cautious, or conservative so be it.

    In being a realist intellectually, I have found my theories more often proved right by history than they would otherwise be.

    This is why I always ask those who shake fist and decry the injustice inherent in our system to propose something better.

    Or at least to propose an evolution of our current scheme that functions to minimize that injustice.

    When they can't, I let it go because there's no point in continuing the discussion (at least for me).

    The only interest I have is in the creation of a better system, not a debate where the only substantive discussion is whining about perceived injustices.

    Tell me what this says about me.

    Reveal me to be the idiot or monster you think me to be.

    All I have to do is give you enough rope, and wait to see if you hang yourself with it.

    Its funny because that's what I've already done with yourself, about a dozen times, I'm actually beginning to think you're a big over compensator driven by threatening self-doubt. In a moment I think you'll prove my point.

    Have you now?

    It's funny I don't feel anything around my neck.

    You're vague responses are boring me.

    Feel free to PM me with whatever crushing evidence of your dominance you have.

    Otherwise later gator.

    Sorry about that. I scanned it several times looking for a place name, but was in a rush and kept missing it; so all I kept catching was "American" and "Moscow", and I knew it wasn't those since you were comparing it to them.
