Common terms on WB that don't actually mean anything.

My Recent Posts

Digitising the debt.

Monetising the debt.

Paying down the debt.

Digitising spending. Digitising the deficit. Paying down the deficit.

And many others.

These terms don't actually mean anything but they have been imprinted into your consciousness by your capitalist overlords to invoke fear into you to believe that government provided benefits are inherently bad.

A government in a functioning democracy by definition provides society with benefits that a cpaitalist class system will not provide.

Capitalism and democracy are, if not mutually exclusive........ no, fuck it, they are mutually exclusive.

Please note, as a rule of thumb I don't promote articles by authors that don't place an image into author profile.  The image does not have to be of yourself, it can be of almost anything you like.  I also highly advise adding some white space between paragraphs and writing more text with your articles.  As always, many thanks for your participation with Write Beat!

I can't imagine why an image is important. You have a bunch of extremist right wing loons post here.

I may not fully agree with your last sentence but you're pretty close.  A Decmocracy such as ours as you say exists for the public good.  That may be a tricky term to define.  I rely on the earlier Supreme Court ruling on pornography.  They couldn't define it but know it when they see it.  I apply that to the public good.  I am certain it's isn't a bunch of super rich capitalists getting million dollar tax breaks at the expense of so many others.

Your articles are like verbal ejaculations. All full of hate and Leftist buzzwords.

Paul both the far left and far right suffer from the same thing.  A set of assumptions that drive their behavior that have been demonstrated to be at least suspect if not completely false.  We have on this site attracted a number of people who are either terminally stupid or perhaps getting their kicks at disturbing people.  Since you don't know who they are or what their backgrounds are it is difficult to ascertain their motives.  The big problem I see, because I am interested in and been broadly educated in the ideas, is economics.  There are several streams of economic thought and have been many more over the years and simply if you take a good course in economic history you can discover some of these.
