Very slippery of you Gandalf. How about we start with what I am "actually" claiming?


good point FD.

I am a lefty. All of those positions are well founded in traditional left wing principles.


Every single one of those positions you talk about are in fact right wing/conservative articles of faith.

Like I said, you redefine the left beyond all meaning.


Is criticising a movement for increasing inequality a right wing article of faith?

No.

But pretending unions increase inequality because some baseless and thoroughly debunked Milton Freedman brain fart says so is certainly part of the propaganda war against unions that the right (and you) are so united behind.

And more broadly, incoherent culture-war hand waving that directly flys in the face of clear scientific evidence seems to be a right wing specialty. Though like I said, I do give you credit for bucking this trend in relation to climate change.

I provided a coherent economic mechanism for this to happen. Your ignorance of economics is not an argument Gandalf. Your inability to figure out whether an economist is contradicting Friedman is not an argument either.

Probably not something you should laugh too hard about considering your constitutional crisis. Or is it crises of constitutions?

I distinctly remember you not contributing anything.

Why do you criticize something you know hardly anything about?

I remember many others and myself poking holes in your drafts. Don't be bummed, one day we may say "By George he's got it!" It's just today is not that day.
