Hey, let's talk socialism & other forms of entitlement...

Elsewhere (190)

Quote:
A couple of years ago, the then minister of education admitted that the aim of the regime’s policies was “not to take the people out of poverty so they become middle class and then turn into escuálidos” (a derogatory term to denote opposition members). In other words, the government wanted grateful, dependent voters, not prosperous Venezuelans.
M'bold.

Quote:
And by happy coincidence, these little clownlings are currently ‘occupying’ a lecture hall at Sheffield University and demanding a “free, non-hierarchical” university education. Because choosing to take a degree course that they don’t want to pay for, and don’t think is worth paying for, is apparently “a radical act,” and because, being so fabulous, so incredibly radical, they have a “right” to the money that other people had to earn by doing something of value. According to the occupiers and their supporters, learning useful skills and thereby becoming employable “is exactly what education shouldn’t be [about].” Which suggests they probably aren’t the engineers and biochemists of tomorrow.
M'bold.

Two things. First, a quote:

“Since this is an era when many people are concerned about ‘fairness’ and ‘social justice’, what is your ‘fair share’ of what someone else has worked for?” - Thomas Sowell

Second, a cartoon:

Further on that diamond studded example of progressivism, Venezuela.

AP Interview: Inflation-hit Venezuela to print bigger bills

Quote:
Venezuela's government will begin printing larger-denominated bank notes sometime this year, a top finance official said, as runaway inflation has eroded the value of the nation's biggest bill to less than a U.S. dime on the black market.

Central Bank President Nelson Merentes' comments in an interview Monday with The Associated Press were the first confirmation that Venezuela is preparing to print larger bills, something that had been rumored for months.

Market economists have said bigger bills will only accelerate inflation that last year hit 181 percent — the highest in the world.
M'bold.

Well, they get some of it right.

How the Left Came to Reject Cheap Energy for the Poor

Quote:
But if developed-world progressives, comfortably ensconced in their own modernity, today reject the old progressive vision of cheap, abundant, grid electricity for everyone, progressive modernizers in the developing world are under no such illusion. Whether socialists, state capitalists, or, mostly, some combination of the two, developing world leaders like Brazil’s Lula da Silva understand that cheap grid electricity is good for people and good for the environment. That modern energy and fertilizers increase crop yields and allow forests to grow back. That energy poverty causes more harm to the poor than global warming. They view cheap energy as a public good and a human right, and they are well on their way to providing electricity to every one of their citizens.

Wasn't aware there was a race. Guess I did't get the email.

And yet, if you look at facts, like the number of views per post, this thread has nearly double what the other one has.

Apparently, this thread has nearly twice the interest. Huh...

Quality over quantity. Any day of the week...

Calling a spade a spade is negative? Go back to your safe space, foolish one. There's facts in this thread. It's scary here...

Just pointing out that people seem to prefer playing in the playground I set up. Including you. Hmmm.

Yeah. And?

Like most of your posts, the point is lost.

So, what's the thrust here? I'm not allowed to discuss Progressivism on "your" thread?

I've put more salient content onto that thread then you've put here.
