So you assume if someone is still in disagreement with you it's because they don't read what you post?
Sounds like when the Dems say people are being partisan because they won't tow their agenda.
That's not even close to where I'm coming from……..talk about assumptions ;)………...
To any and all interested parties; MIT offers FREE ON LINE COURSES in many of their subjects including ECONOMICS (minus any Henry George of course ;) which will please some. My recommendation to anyone entering a debate or discussion, is to at least have a basic understanding of the subject 'before'……..showing an obvious lack of understanding of that subject. Doesn't that make some sense? Perhaps we could/should debate or discuss 'that' concept for awhile :)
I don't mind disagreements or debate at all, in fact I find them stimulating when opposing opinions are intelligently offered and name calling is held to a minimum. But when an 'honest' debate is faced/challenged with mythologies instead of facts and reality, then what?
When any subject is as clearly misunderstood as this one (POLITICAL ECONOMY), choosing to debate and/or ridicule can come across as both futile and discouraging at best………….TBH….it rips out my heart to have some of these conversations turn ugly so quickly and almost always due to……some misunderstanding………….a common thread………...(can't wait for SPRING :)).
.……well, keeping that in mind; 'Who's' responsibility is it to find out and/or expose the truths, the lies, the facts and the fiction? It must either be those who 'might' have some knowledge of a given subject or - should we all just 'cave' to those who have little idea what is going on or is minimally confused- without challenging? Really? OR- should we all say nothing at all…..you all know who's secret desires that 'satisfies', right? ;)
Just asking and just wondering :-\ What I'm saying is this; "If you want to debate or discuss a subject with me…you'd better know the material." That's the least anyone should expect IMO.
Again I'm finding myself apologizing 'ahead of time' for any presumed and/or perceived offenses toward folks that plainly don't know my true intentions…. :'(
