28. Your disagreement doesn't alter the economic dymanics that make it so.
Edited on Tue Mar-29-11 11:09 PM by kristopher
While it's true that a range of scenarios could be trotted out where an either/or choice is avoided, the world we live in has existing rules and a cultural matrix with great inertia. To deny the validity of my claims is to descend into an an exercise in sophistry where alternate and non-existing realities are accorded equal weight with the daily world we live in.

It is a view of life I can muster little respect for, frankly.
