From an article written by Karen Selick, Canadian attorney

The increasing polarization in our society stems not from sexual, racial or other physical differences, but from ideological ones. The opposing camps are not male versus female, white versus black, straight versus gay, able-bodied
versus disabled. They are individualist versus collectivist, capitalist versus socialist, libertarian versus authoritarian. The former camp believes in individual freedom and responsibility; the latter believes in coercion and central control.

In a capitalist, individualist, libertarian society, those who wished to be socialists could band together and do just that. They could form voluntary mutual aid societies, workplace co-ops, residential co-ops, purchasing co-ops, or full-blown communes, religious or secular. Among themselves, they could choose to equalize their incomes, redistribute their
wealth, subsidize childbearing, adopt sexual or racial quotas in their business premises, ban dirty jokes and light switchplates, and so on. Capitalists would not stop them, because capitalists recognize that freedom includes the
right to dispose of your energy and your property as you see fit, no matter how self-destructively that may turn out to be in some instances.

The reverse does not apply. In a collectivist society, capitalists are never permitted to opt out and deal with like-minded capitalists without interference. The collectivists insist that everyone pay for collectivist social programs, even if they don’t use them. Transactions in certain kinds of goods and services are forbidden, even among consenting adults. Everyone has to participate in the quotas, the price-fixing, the regimentation, like it or not.

    • “We will never have the elite, smart people on our side,because they believe they should have the power to tell you what to do. So our colleges and universities, they’re not going to be on our side.” if going to post a quote do not take it out of context.

    ive figured out the best way to use forum, block all but jeff, sungen and ronnie, and rw, jeff when he plays with MR is trying, sungen all over the place with multiple scans and indicators and multiple charts, but she shares, rw – go the opposite, so i appreciate the above , hyper and jb mental midgets, pennystocking players, all they can afford. , jeff when you use MR, use scans that have a lot of hits and are successful, that 12/25 thing stinks. instead of trying to change the
    world and censoring posters , you ought to turn your energy to figuring out ronnies plays. if you had some money you wouldnt bitch so much. im rich and enjoying the obama years, $400,000 to one million, in my iras alone. typical teacupper, loves freedom, but censors my name. thats how repubs roll. next is universal pet school, my dogs are better than most people , including hyperion.
