Thing I Know #183. When an education has given you the ability to dismiss ideas more quickly, it’s not really an education.

The Palin bashers enter the argument with this preconceived notion that, as I said, if Palin can be wrong then she must be.
A disagreement starts and then both sides are expected to play along with this fairy tale fantasy that the Palin bashers first soaked up all the relevant information, and then came to a dispassionate, reasoned conclusion about what is happening…and then, oh dear, discovered Sarah Palin is in error. Why do we play this game? Seriously, why even bother. We just got done with that Party Like It’s 1773 thing where the Palin haters made absolute fools out of themselves, by flying on the seat of their pants and letting their passions take them for a ride. Next time they make the same noises, they want us to pretend it didn’t happen and we somehow accommodate them.
So now we are to pretend food costs have not been going up. -- House of Eratosthenes

Your Say

I read the post, and the comment thread attached to it. Your comment:

"Yes, I am saying that for Marxism to work, you will necessarily end up with a totalitarian government." is correct. This is because Marxism, like Islam is a total package deal. It has something to say about every aspect of life and how it is to be lived. Something that tries to encompass everything is by definition totalitarian.

Captialism, for instance, is not a totalitarian system because it only addresses economics. It does not address social organizations and clubs, religion, form of government, family life, etc.
