    Default The power of (wrong) ideas

    Libertarianism is to blame for the counter revolution which created the conditions for the financial crisis and political coup we're now living with.
    All for ourselves, and nothing for other people, seems, in every age of the world, to have been the vile maxim of the masters of mankind.
    Chapter IV, p. 448. - Adam Smith, Book 3, The Wealth of Nations

    whether or not you credit psychoanalysis itself, the fact remains that we all must, to the greatest extent possible, understand one another's minds as our own; the very survival of humanity has always depended on it. - Open Culture

    Just the nature of Man [greed mostly] flourishing given the adequate conditions. Nothing new, no matter the flavor, it was just a powder keg waiting to be lit.

    I've read a bit of this. It reminded me of a less narrative focused Shock Doctrine. Of course, no one here is going to respond well to this so I don't know why you bother, Lark.

    Actually, I don't know why I bother because I'm pretty sure Lark has me on ignore.

    Darn, I was hoping from the title this would be about not limiting creativity....

    (kind of the opposite)



    One main thing I don't get here is, has the economy become even remotely libertarian enough to solidly say "this is the idea that destroys the economy"?

    Your representative owes you, not his industry only, but his judgment; and he betrays, instead of serving you, if he sacrifices it to your opinion.
