Damn right!!

Now I know since your a self declared socialist NJ this poster will find you a biased and ideologically motivated brain washee, which I guess just goes to show that in the US the word dumbass fits a large proportion of the population.

I mean here's me advocating trial and error in organisation of a non-market system and I'm a statist and the (Very) tired anti-keynesian arguments are flung at me and what do these anti-keynesian arguments amount to?

-The assertion that there is no alternative to a utopian blueprint invented prior to the collapse of fuedalism, itself grounded in ideology rather than evidence.

-Ignorance, wilful ignorance, of the facts infavour of political prejudice and market ideology.
-One of the most closed minds I've had the pleasure to meet.

I mean the evidence is there. Even following the capitalist Maxim that we are all self-interested pleasure maximisers with no ability to defer gratification it would seem logical that companies would pollute like mad to win the short term competition, where competition exists that is. Competition being an endangered species in Global Corporate domination.
