  • Re: "What about the poor"

    Another good rag to riches is book is "Up from Slavery" by Booker T. Washington. Not only did a guy who just got out of slavery make it up in the world to start a school, but it really does show that rich people are very willing to help the poor despite the hatred against them. It also shows why child labor really isn't evil, that racism

  • Re: "What about the poor"

    For me, I find emotional argumentaton pointless so when the personal attacks start flying I am just like "whatever". I find that debate should be an educational exchange between two people.

  • Re: Anarchy Defined

    Anarchy to me is the rule of law based upon the framework of mutual contract (or trust) and the concept of social norms which govern society.
