The greatest good

Greatest good to the greatest number has always been capitalism.  Only that has provided the excess that has allowed us to prop up the world and to bail every body out.  Don’t see similar activities coming from the socialists of any country.  Socialism always degenerates into a minimum to the greatest number of people.  Level playing field with everybody playing on the bottom.  Except for the socialists themselves who always seem to choose the positions at the top of the ladder after which they pull the ladders up.

About drrik

3rd career and 2nd childhood. Spends spare time repairing old things. Aspires to burn more gasoline, gunpowder, and ink in pursuit of slowing down. Child of the 60s and aspiring student of history. No desire to see us repeat the failed social experiments that keep failing for lack of human beings that meet the left wing standards and have to be killed off. Did engineering long enough to realize that very little is new and the wheel does not need to be reinvented.

    Sooo many good rumblings and limited time to reply, Drik. As always, pithy and pointed. My compliments. Trust this will provide you the outlet you need — hahaha

    It’s so simple even a caveman could understand it, which means it’s beyond the comprehension of the average leftist.

      Not so sure that it’s a comprehension problem. I think it’s more of a stasis problem. St. Ignacious is much credited with the statement, “give me a child for the first 7 years and it matters not who has him afterwards”. Think that he was paraphrasing Aristotle who tended to pontificate endlessly. Ari said that the habits formed at youth persist. On a pessimistic view, the Manhatten project’s Oppenheimer said that most folks are not really capable of getting with the program. That you are stuck with them until they die off and you can educate the next generation.
