Phew, I'm exhausted! Ok, I'll have to rethink how to put this. You want me to distinguish clearly between 'free markets' and 'freedom' in general? I think I have an approach that may work: I'd better revisit what the US administration currently claims to be fighting for in Iraq, and what it wanted to achieve with the Free Trade Agreement of the Americas (FTAA) - that may clear things up. Intelligent response pending... I'm now going to log off and go outside for a walk and a breath of airTheStatutoryApe said:Whoa there... you're jumping back and forth here. You've equated "free markets" and "freedom" in general and went on to say that since the US doesn't actually promote pure free market economics then it must not really care about freedom and so what it says about it's intentions about promoting freedom are lies and then you're back on to free markets and.... Do you see the crazy sort of mish mash you have going on here?
Perhaps you can rephrase this and make your logic a bit clearer? Also perhaps we can talk about Capitalism instead of taking off on tangents about the US and it's supposed lies?
