It supposes as most socialist do that without government intervention corporations would be free to take over and run wild. But of course this fallacy is exposed when it is realized that Corporations already do that precisely BECAUSE OF GOVERNMENT INTERVENTION to protect markets for these politically connected corporations. Oh and by the way Government is nothing more then a private corporation itself these days also so is not really government.

Well, unless I am mistaken on the reports, do you think the US has a larger GDP than the entire world? I am only going by what is reported.
A lot of people vilify the religeous of the world. The Christian belief is to give a certain percentage of your income to charity.
I did not state these things to piss anyone off. I know there is good in every country of the world. There is also evil in every country in the world. That is why my stance on my government.

Free speech issues
Social issues(abortion, Gay rights, etc)
Just to name the easy ones.
My question is this, if you take the politics and patriotism out of these issues, what's wrong with seeing another point of view? What sets you guys off on a shoot and destroy mission anything that it isn't OUR" way?
There are better ways of doing things. That's evolution of man. If you miss it isn't that a bad thing? You won't see it in your media. Be thankful for the Net and places like ATS. We're international, many different ideas. Start looking. Start thinking.
