I will address no more of your reply to my post than this...
Since you have chosen to "inject your own words" into my statement, and call them mine, I count no more of your statements worth consideration,
review or comment.
What you are doing is what politicians do best in this country. You are evading the valid points I have brought up. You are trying to get off on some
sort of "technicality" with my words to dodge the question. Serious question for you: "Are you involved with the Republican Party?" (or any
campaigning for politics or involved in any way shape or form with politics at all, but I better be crystal clear since you don't seem to comprehend
good english, "politics" how the average person would understand)?
I said this,
I am glad you take such a cynical view on humanity. [Way] to discount all the doctors, researchers, and lawyers who have chosen those fields for the
I did not say you "discount 'ALL' doctors, researchers, and lawyers." How do you get that from what I said? There are a handful of doctors,
researchers, and lawyers who did NOT pick their career to, as you said, "fill their pockets with gold." In fact, some of them have even taken a vow
The point that I was making, which you are evading, is why do we need capitalism in order for people to do "good"? Why can't people just do
"good" for the sake of doing "good"?
You call yourself (the reincarnation/s of) God, Jesus, Solomon, etc... ?
Has nothing to do with this thread.
Can't even deal honorably with another (mere) human...?
Actually, you are the one being dishonorable. Instead of addressing the valid flaw I pointed out with your reasoning, you use an ad hominem attack.
and nothing in my statement implied such a sentiment.
If I misunderstood you, then I am sorry. I was merely taking your viewpoint to its natural conclusion. Remember, you have to keep things in
I said that we are producing more businessmen and women than we are doctors, lawyers, and researchers. You replied that thanks to capitalism we are
producing "more" of those than we could otherwise ever hope to do so. In other words, you take a cynical viewpoint on humanity that people will only
choose to do "good" if their "pockets" will be filled with "gold."
I was calling you out on this, and bringing to your attention, "What about all the doctors, researchers, and lawyers who choose these fields for the
greater commoner good?" I assumed I am talking to someone who is educated, and it should go without saying, but I will say it anyways, "How did they
come to desiring to do good when they don't care about the gold?" And this also begs the question, "What did society do right to produce those
citizens who want to do good without a lust for 'gold,' and what is society doing wrong that all the others are only doing good for 'gold'?"
So I am very sorry for assuming that you were intelligent, but only misguided. I won't make that assumption again when communicating with you.
Who would be 'cynical about humanity'... more ...than one who falsely accuses others of thoughts, intents and words...to deceitfully
further an argument?
I did no such thing. And you would be more cynical than I since you used cheap political tricks in replying to me. Your post contributed nothing to
this thread, and it would have been better if you simply did not reply.
If you are going to reply, please address the valid points I brought up. If you are just going to use cheap political tricks, then have some respect
for this website, and PM me that.
