  •  There are a few really stupid notions in (1+ / 0-)

    U.S. culture, particularly amongst conservatives.

    "Give me liberty or give me death" exemplifies one of them.

    "The economy is not a zero-sum game!" exemplifies another.

    On their own these two stupid enough, but they are also suggestive when considered together. On a lonely planet like Earth, everything is a zero-sum game. When you fail to understand this, liberty is death. And, the more laissez-faire an economic system of scale, the more evident its zero-sum nature becomes.

    "Liberty" is deaf, dumb, and useless without life itself.
