"capitalism is about cooperation- figuring out the most efficient way for people to cooperate with each other without having the fruits of their labor taken from them by force. a single industrialist is useless- he needs to trade with others, goods and ideas, and everyone is better off for it. the poor get jobs, and products, that they wouldn't have the resources or ingenuity to create themselves. and the industrialists get rich. is it perfect? hell no. but to say that it is anti-cooperation is a butchering of the facts." - obsidianavenger, League of Reason

Apparently, things are a tiny bit more civil in the philosophy section of the forum.

"Both corporatism and socialism are theft." --Shane

"Statist logic:  It's the equivalent of dividing by zero." --Me, referring to that metric where the number of social programs corresponds to quality of life.

No, anything times zero is zero:
a*0 = 0.
Zero product property for the win. :P

"NASA is one of the most inefficient agencies. Meanwhile the private market for communication satellites thrives. Even the few technologies that have benefited the rest of the world only became so when the free market was applied. You seem to think the government knows what's best for people than what people do. Fine, surrender as much money and freedom to them as you like, but do not advocate that others do the same." --kev3d

"Government should not be involved in education at all, same with the arts. The private market provides FAR better results. The greatest works of art were created for profit, for example." --kev3d

"What criteria? Why should the government decide what is "wanted"? Government funding "special projects" is the root of corruption and the next thing you know you have bridges to nowhere and astronauts testing the effect of zero gravity on jelly beans." --kev3d

Personally I am very interested in Zero and Low Gravity Jelly Beans.
I'm certain it'll be a boon for the dieat industry.

Hey, at least I put a quote from Snuggle Bunny to soften the blow. :P

"Most of the government offices closed, things shut down, checks didn't get in the mail, and so forth. And the Gallup Poll took a survey to find out how the American people felt about this. 17% of them thought it was a terrible thing, 19% of them thought it was a wonderful thing, 8% of them had no opinion whatsoever, and the other 54% didn't even notice the government had shut down." --Harry Browne, "I Dreamed They Repealed the 20th Century"

Tim Slagle:

"In a recent poll by ABC and the Washington Post, they determined that 80% of America was opposed to the recent Supreme Court decision in Citizens United v. FEC.  I would have like to seen something much more relevant, like how many people know that the case before the Supreme Court was even called “Citizens United v. FEC?”"

"Strangely, when the Democrats are on the losing side of the poll, they are drawn to Republicanism quicker than an accused felon finds religion."
