Will say this once and then nothing else. Defamation laws quite clear in Aus.be careful.
Nah, guys, we've already asked things re: libertarianism etc. to stop for the time being. If you want, make your own thread, and I might move some posts.
CBF right now, tbf.
WHO ARE YOU TO TELL ME TO WHAT TO DO a
There are no notions of a perfect market - that's a strawman. No one thinks the market is perfect and your claim is ludicrous. It is merely that the free market is the best alternative - not that it is perfect. You should know this, but then again, representatives of your side of the argument have shown they don't know much about the opposition's philosophy when berating it. Honestly, it discredit and disqualifies you in this discussion. This is a Spark-like blunder.
Ironically, the more cuckoo notion is Keynesian: that with adjustments/interventions by the government we can stay in a constant boom. If you want to argue that the world is too intricate and complicated, then you wouldn't be on the Keynesian side. They think it's not complicated enough, hence they meddle in it.
Per usual, you haven't given one argument with a point that actually addresses anything you disagree with. You just repeat "it doesn't work because it doesn't work". There are far greater minds than yours, who have been through more than both of us combined, who state opinions contrary to yours. This personal experience argument you have going doesn't cut the mustard in terms of an intelligible debate.
As for your continuously snide remarks: I've looked after my family in running two businesses, a restaurant and a gift store, since I have been in my teens because both my parents suffered back accidents and can no longer work much. This is while studying for a law degree. I already live in the real world; so **** up, thanks.
Again, you can't legislate out harm. This world is no utopia and bad things happen to good people. It is a very sad case and looking at her picture it moves me because it reminds me of my sister. What I'd rather happen is that masses of people boycott KFC for a while and watch them scramble. But, of course, personal responsibility and action is just too much to ask for some. They're only activists when someone else is doing the work. Personally, I will not be touching KFC any more.

Yeah we don't crap in the first world; most of us would actually have no idea what that was emanating from Ajmal's backside. Why isn't it roses and rainbows like what happens here? PEWS's retort to Ganeshran on Daemon's picture depicting Ajmal's excreta
Likewise, Burgey, who confused a perfect market for a free market, made a comparable blunder. These are the very basic things you have to know. It does, however, show why he would be indignant about my position before, since he thought the two equated, because to assume any economic model will achieve a perfect market is pure delusion. That's the point about free markets: they may not be perfect, but they're less harmful than models which purport to fix market failures. And with their outcome, it is the representation of consent amongst people in the market...not manipulation from those who would use the power of the market to benefit themselves.
The fact that both of you got it horribly wrong should, at the least, humble you to read more before you question me, as if I do not know what I am talking about.
It's akin to arguing about the greatest cricket batsmen and forgetting Bradman averaged 99.94. They're red flags for you not knowing the subject matter well enough. This is not to say I know everything - economics is not my chosen field of study - but I know enough to argue the subject. With all due respect, you don't.
