Comments on: Economic action needs its hard core http://blogs.reuters.com/edward-hadas/2012/09/12/economic-action-needs-its-hard-core/ Wed, 07 Oct 2015 17:23:32 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: OneOfTheSheep http://blogs.reuters.com/edward-hadas/2012/09/12/economic-action-needs-its-hard-core/comment-page-1/#comment-796 Thu, 13 Sep 2012 03:34:35 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/edward-hadas/?p=300#comment-796 You make perhaps the best explanation yet as to why Europe is forever struggling, financially and politically. “A tiny group of radical Marxists somehow metamorphosed into respectable politicians who could win democratic elections, neutralize old aristocracies and soften up new industrialists without compromising their hard core goals of social safety nets and universal public services.”

Thank you for pointing out that today’s “Social Democrat” (Socialist) agenda is fruit matured from seeds planted by “radical Marxists”. In America there is no more Socialist Party, but every Socialist goal that is not already established policy of the American government is obviously present in the platform and obvious agenda of the Democratic party. As each eventually runs out of “other people’s money”, it becomes an “inconvenient truth” that their “social safety nets and universal public services” are choices too lavish for their combined economies are able to sustain.

I disagree with what you see to be the “critical challenge” of Europe’s “Social Democrats”. It isn’t suicidally predatory nationalism, but overcoming their citizen’s pervasive expectation of low retirement age and excessive time off (leaves, vacations, holidays) to the point of laziness while still expecting all the benefits that hard workers properly earn.

One need look no further than comparing the differences between the American economy, which militarily and economically historically bails out everyone else, and the pervasively self-disabled European models. I fail to see how Europeans are able to suggest, apparently seriously, that “Americans work too hard”.

Market-capitalism turns actual slavery into wage-slavery.

This article is BOVINE SCAT and it’s bad for you.

The old systems are failing. The fractional money system is headed for collapse, it’s a fiat house of cards built upon lies.

Scarcity is the LIE!

Technology is the solution. Science is the solution. Enlightenment and mental health is the solution. Education is the solution, physical health is the solution.

The imbalances created by the phony competitive capitalism create MORE suffering, not less and make life NOT WORTH LIVING.

Everything must change or we must go extinct. Ether way, its OK with me.
