The problem with demonizing an entire set of beliefs is that it leaves you nowhere to go except the polar opposite.

Late 20th century economics can be summarized as slave labor under political autocracy "escaping" into the prisons of economic autocracy. Our great nation today is basically one big prison system, ever growing. Eventually, the majority of people living in this country will be in prison. Laws were a tool to give cowards the courage to do what they believe in, good or bad.

Here's a clue: either overwork or intelligence. Overwork happens when employees suffer from low morale, lack free time, and leave work at the end of the day as a consumer without the energy to consume. So what happens to their money?

Without democracy, those at the bottom are afraid to disagree with those at the top, and those at the top have neither the obligation nor the structure to listen to those at the bottom.

You are assuming that life expectancy will rise, but the point at which there's a cut-off between "able-bodied" and "feeble" is constant.

Again, you have to re-evaluate the concept of "saving". "Saving" resources, saving food, saving knowledge, saving labor. These are all valuable because these are vital to production.

It's a question of who has possession of currency. If the population is constant or decreasing, more currency in circulation means more disposable income. If it is increasing, less disposable income. As a nation becomes more productive, the more it can trade for imports. A strong currency means a country can import more and work less. Stupidity happens when "work less" translates to laid off workers, who then suffer a drop in their standard of living, despite the fact that real goods are coming in in exchange for mere paper. The FIRST beneficiaries of a strong currency should be the jobless, at the least in terms of education... producing ideas that improve productivity. But again, the inherent stupidity of an economy based on competition results in constant reinvention of the wheel and the invention of useless busy work. So what happens when all the currencies of the world are united? Lots of unemployed currency traders. They were never doing anything useful anyway, but because of the way the global economy is structured, these traders have to make monetary union as difficult as possible because their own jobs are at stake. -------- A human is a sex manual's way of producing more sex manuals.

Short term economics happen on the stock market. Rumors, fear, panic, half-truths, fads, fanatics, and lemmings. These impact the fortunes of a company's workers far more than anything else. Rumors of buyouts are started by those who already have investments in the target company, fanned by idiot pawns who then invest in the target company themselves, shooting the price up. The ultimate buyout never happens because rumors always drive the price too high, even if someone DID want to buy. It's just a game of chicken.

Thousands of years ago, humans discovered that certain types of behavior resulted in a society that was more likely to survive. Thus they wrote down these types of behavior, to encourage others to behave in the same way. They called them laws, morals, commandments, whathaveyou. The concept of marriage for example. Before that, humans killed each other for mates. For those societies that actually believed in the sanctity of marriage, those killings ended. Thus marriage was pronounced Good (TM). What has happened after thousands of years of repetition is that the reasoning behind marriage has been completely forgotten, and people started to kill each other for *violating* marriage instead.

The real main problem is mass gullibility...resulting from years of self-hypnosis. Warfare is basically caused by mass communication. Whoever controls communication controls war. The more one-directional it is, the more easy it is to start a war. This is why military forces are structured as a downward hierarchy. Unquestioning obedience propagated from one commander at the top to the thousands of pawns below. If military decisions were made democratically, there would be no such thing as war... unless, of course, a uni- directional media is able to bring about mass brainwashed chaos. -------- Those who don't believe in the power of the press have obviously never taken a trip down to Grover's Mill with Orson Welles.

It is the job of the press to "expose" what politicians are up to, to prevent you from becoming a drooling idiot when listening to a political speech. BUT. But who "exposes" the press? Who prevents you from drooling when listening to anyone else? If a person has his life and liberty, how would he know he is rich or poor?

Pure stupidity. Public or private has nothing to do with it. Whether Quebec, Texas, Northern Ireland, or Palestine are independent has nothing to do with it. It's a question of WHO has power over another person. Teachers over students? Students over teachers? In a truly just society, the answer is neither... when brainwashing is NOT one- directional. Consider the goal of the Wall Street Journal: to plug the Dow over the S&P 500. Because it has become the investor's Bible, it worked. Not that the Dow Jones industrial average is necessarily evil. It might even be trying to plug the stocks of a few valuable industries (however WSJ big shots define "valuable")... or using a few "sexy" stocks to prop up more useful companies. Real power over the market lies in buying first, brainwashing other people to your side, and then cashing in. THAT is why the popularity and control over the WSJ is so important to Dow Jones Inc.

Idiots on both sides imposing their values on other cultures. Why do we have public schools in this country? We believe in brainwashing our kids to accept our laws, and maybe teach them something valuable to boot. Why do we have anti-child labor laws? To ensure kids will be learning instead of working. But ending child-labor without education, and what does the world get? Nothing. Which is good, because we Americans only want Americans to be smart anyway.
