: :What will they think of next?
: : Everybody knows there are places in the world that have no desire to improve their standard of living. It's one of those mysteries of life that no one can explain. If there are some places in the world where people prefer to bark at the moon to bring rain for their crops, fine. Whatever spins their collective props.
: Your condescension is really striking. DO you have any respoect for people's opinions which amy differ from your own? Do you ahve any conception of freedom of speech, or freedom of conscience? Oh no, I forgot, you're a capitalist. Capitalists don't believe in free thought, as was proven so eloquently in Chile, or South Korea, or indonesia.
I won't bother to respond to your counterpoints but instead ask you to try to see how another may view your post. We disagree at a fundamental level and that's fine, but what's striking is that you are so condescending yourself towards others.
But I've got a treat for you and the other 'intellkchualls' written by Von Mises...you'll love how he views 'intelktallls' of the pink variety.
PS, in regards to getting really annoyed...sue me.
Here's something you can take to your lawyer; people who view lack of freedom in places like S. Korea without comparing the situation vis-a-vis N. Korea are really dumb.
