- Population growth is a greater threat than climate change, and can be controlled through the education and establishment of civil rights for women. (Even here in the U.S.). Religion is the greatest barrier to this endeavor.
While I agree in principle, I'm not sure how the host proposes to eliminate religion in places where people don't even have the freedom to declare themselves atheists.
- All rich people and corporations are evil and are a larger problem than people who choose to live off social programs/assistance.
Hmmm...not sure what the host was proposing. People get rich by producing more than they consume, and by spending less than they earn. Are we saying people should spend exactly what they earn and only produce the bare minimum?
Corporations are formed to acquire assets for production not possible for an individual to acquire. The benefits are delusion of risk...so this attracts investors. Are we suggesting GM, Ford, GE, Boeing could exist as a Ma & Pa?
- Unemployment would cease to exist if we went to a 30 hour work week.
Umm..yeah...that's it. Works great in Europe.
- Economic growth is bad and is like sawing off the limb you're sitting on.
Host proposes economies should be stagnant and any growth should be returned to the people or something like that.
Anyhooo, I thought it was interesting and I also heard all the standard talking points I hear here. Back to the Ozzy's Boneyard for today though.
