Anyhow, about the social responsibilities of businessmen. The small shop owners here are a mixed lot, some exceedingly selfish, others more open to thoughtfully applying their extra profit to a useful local cause. Some of them even pay their own help decently. That would be my most favorite local cause, better wages = lower employee turnover.

Socialism? Skip the textbook definition, I believe most all forms of government ever devised, all exist in some corner of the land, in some sector of society.

From the purer communism of convents and monasteries, to the militant fascism of, say, David Koresh's little colony in Waco, to the absolute despotism of this certain white slavery camp in western Oregon...it's all right here.

The mountain ain't comin' to Mohammed. So, I say to the young, look for the style of social order which suits you best, then google around and find a community somewhere that promotes your favorite governmental structure.

From paramilitary to peace and flowers, there is something for everybody, somewhere on the globe.

Earth...love it or leave it, right?

Because he preaches what most media members are against and people get slanted or spun news and never real fair and unbiased news reports anymore.

The bloke says that you guys can live without income tax since you managed to do that 100 years ago. Well Ron you're not living in 100 years ago, so good luck with that!

He also says we shouldn't randomly spend hundreds of billions of dollars on worthless ****. Obama and McCain's plans include increasing spending and cutting taxes. Not much change there.

i like a lot of what he says but consider him to be terribly idealistic. I have never understood how his policies would translate to actually governing the country. I also think that it is easy to take pot shots from the outside in.

A lot of people are scared of his ideas and think he would initiate them immediately. He stated income tax wasn't constitutional...and he would like to see it go. But realistically he probably wouldn't be able to get rid of it lickety-split.

This generation coming up is probably going to be the first to actually do worse than their parents, even coming in as the most highly educated.

From a non-American's pespective: His ideas are too radical. Even if he did get more attention by the media, people wouldn't support him despite the fact that he makes a lot of sense. They may want change, but not that much change.
