  • "Government" and "Free market" as tautologies...

    .ren's picture

    Over and over instruments of power in social relationships try to make us believe that some abstraction they call "free market" can work without some form of instrument, which they pretend to be against, called government.

    If one wishes to think for oneself, it's imperative to deconstruct tautologies, because tautologies cannot help us to think things through:

    government is virtually always coercive since....

    the free market is always non-coercive since....

  • The Next Step In Having The Republican Presidential Canidate Chosen For Us.

    Once again we have another opportunity to watch how corporate money is making our choice of presidential candidate for us.

    Remember a couple months ago I told you about the Tampa Tribune story about a private army of 4500 well-trained, well-armed thugs being trained by our new mayor? These, I can only call them mercenaries armed with chemical weapons, were "intended" to prevent us citizens from exercizing our civil rights at next year's Teapublibot Convention. Aged pretty boy Bob Buckhorn (I kid you not, he is an old person's version of dubya) was spouting nearly Dirty Harry-esque lines, actually bragging about preemptive violence.

    Oh the fun the Oligarchs will have recasting Iran’s markets into a Capitalists nirvana dominated by Western Financial hegemony.  And by all means, commandeer greater influence over their oil supply so the currency du jour remains the US dollar.

    What I love about politics is that no matter how right you are there will always be idiots who will disagree with you loudly and no matter how ridiculously wrong you are there will always be idiots who will agree with you loudly.
