We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
Besides going after the infantile zero-sum narrative on economics, he extols the miracle of growth and productivity - the growing pie. One quote:
It was not until the Agricultural Revolution that men began to break free of the zero-sum existence of the hunter-gatherer lifestyle. For the first time, production allowed men to increase the food supply—to expand the size of the "pie." No longer did one person's gain entail another person's deprivation. With the gradual increase of production under a division of labor, and with free trade among those producing specialized goods, the "pie" of wealth began to grow rapidly. With the Scientific and Industrial Revolutions, living standards, which had remained at subsistence levels since the dawn of man's presence on Earth, suddenly began to soar, and so did life expectancy. But while the zero-sum social world was disappearing, the zero-sum Narrative did not vanish from the minds of men.
Another thing I don't care for from the "little boys won't share their toys in kindergarten" metaphor: Government as mommy, spreading the toys out as she deems equitable. Where do we find these qualified mommies among our fellow citizens? Shouldn't we make them monarchs?
I've been listening to the Sayet clip. As he says, all distinctions are invidious, so we have to shut down thought in order to prevent ourselves from making any. In order to root out discrimination, we have to become indiscriminate. Only about approved topics, of course; it's still OK to make a knee-jerk judgment that a Republican is evil.
