This debate never really got off the ground. Some counterarguments came in but after that the whole thing came to a halt because nobobody wanted to
discuss my counterarguments to those. Whatever. Sometimes debating with yourself is more rewarding than debating with others...
a reply to: introspectionist
Once again I'm sitting here in the morning and have a few minutes before I must take the bus.
I thought I'd add yet one more little thing to this line of thinking that I spun off in.
There is something that I find quite interesting that I have noticed in the world.
The areas of the world that are Muslim have much more free market economy than the West, much less crony capitalism. This seems to go very much hand
in hand. As the degree of crony capitalism grows, and the tax rate, you find Christianity.
If you think about a society with more or less totally free market economy, to me it seems like Islam would be the only religion and political
ideology that would make sense in such an environment. You have to
get rid of the rotten apples pretty darn fast, to minimize the suffering for
the whole society, in this kind of economy. It is from love.
Then what happens as leftist policies/crony capitalism grows in a society? What you have is pretty much structural subsidization of suffering. It
requires a great apparatus to keep it running. I believe it is a combination of force of nature and planning on higher level.
It appears to be a pyramidal structure. Those lower in the pyramid support the policies that corrupt the overlying layers.
Anyway, I don't have time to elaborate on this theory of mine now. Off to slave labor.
