-- Like what, Chris? You wanna set up Death Camps? Actually, the system you're defending is already a global death camp. Among the things missing in your education seems to be Systems Theory, the Feedback principle (e.g., what goes around comes around), and the Scientific Method (to provide some insight into facts and verification). For example, those who are most destructive to the resources we all depend on are those few rich folks who control the unfettered "market place" you're defending. Finally, your life's-tough-and-we-can't-do-anything-about-it attitude is actually similar to the Roman Stoics who exists just about the time the Christians were being roasted as night lights in the twilight of the Roman Civilization. I understand your self-centered dispair. However, I am happy to report, if my analysis of History is correct, that attitudes like yours never triumph in the long run. So we can end our exchange on a positive thought! -------------------------------------------------- --/\-- A-Infos A-Infos / / \ \ A-Infos A-Infos ---|--/----\--|--- A-Infos A-Infos \/ \/ /\______/\ http://www.tao.ca/wind/ainfos.html
