    I agree, and I thank you for your opinion.

    I made sure that only those I deem intellectually capable of comprehending Dr. Peterson would have the opportunity to respond.

    Post away.

    Nobody on JPP fits that description, AFAIK. You might as well expect a unicorn to watch it.

    You are probably right.

    Just like the Jehovah Witnesses who minister to inmates.

    Most won't hear the message.

    But they go anyway.

    Anybody can preach to the choir.

    It takes REAL patriotism and love of one's fellow man to go where you know your message is needed the MOST but will most likely fall on deaf ears, yet go anyway.

    Let's point out the flaws in her thinking.


    It's time to give socialism a try | Opinion

    That capitalism is inimical* to the best of liberalism isn't a new concern: It's a long-standing critique, present in early socialist thought. That both capitalism and liberal governance have changed since those days without displacing the criticism suggests that it's true in a foundational way.

    I have been very fond of many of them.

    And I maintain that I'm just lucky enough to have been born with enough brain cells (that I could kill off so many along the way with substances and still function at all!) so that I could figure out that Conservatism is the only salvation for America.

    But for my friends, relatives and loved ones or anyone else who might be reading these pages who didn't get the right instruction before now, I want them to at least be able to say that SOMEONE tried to show them the way. Or show them why Communism is the WRONG way.

    One more thing. If there are enough Libs who wake up and #WalkAway from the Left, that means more patriots will be around to resist the bad guys.

    Many Democrats are Democrats because they have no idea of what Conservatism is about or who Conservatives are.

    They have been lied to and sometimes all it would take is their seeing the truth for the first time in a certain way to wake them up.

    Hey Legion, I think it's time for you to actually say something instead of hiding behind the words of other people. Whaddayasay?

    It does, it also often begins with you framing something in your own words...I mean, if you want a discussion that is.

    Peterson backed out of his debate with Richard Wolff because he knew he would be exposed as a wannabe intellectual. The Communist Manifesto is too short to fully understand Marx, so Peterson should've attempted to read Capital but that would be too difficult for him. All one has to do is accept the fact that the capitalist system is about to go bankrupt for the 5th time in 30 years.

    The Mondragon Corporation is proof that Marxism works, it's not affected by the constant global economic collapse that most western countries are forced to deal with. The US and UK have been unable to quash the Basque like they did with Cuba, Yugoslavia, and Venezuela. Ironically, the US and UK economy have been hollowed out by capitalism and only kept buoyant with debt.

    Peterson claims that the poor are getting rich because of capitalism. He failed to mention that the US military is stealing indigenous farmland so Sony can go in and build a factory there for the cheap labor. Capitalism has led us to neo-feudalism, millennials in the US can't afford to buy a house because their college debt made them slaves to working at the mall or a fastfood chain.
