loved the article, though this puzzles me: if the market is not crony corporatism and is a result of voluntary interactions of individuals thinking for themselves, what seems to be wrong with that?
Erm, it’s not as cut-and-dried as that. The market is complex and evolving and is anything but free — crony corporatism abounds…
This is fascinating stuff, Josh. Thank you for sharing it with us. Life journeys are weird and wonderful, occasionally scary things. I think the thing you’ve realised is that there’s no pat answer that can fully satisfy every question. Therefore the message is to keep on travelling until you reach your destination, whatever that may be. Keep seeking…
Thanks, Jessi. The post: https://medium.com/@wendycockcroft/identity-politics-is-destroying-america-868bc87bf108#.rqrhhcvpr
If we can just stop trying to bully each other into accepting our points of view without question — lose that overweening sense of entitlement to support for our positions — you’ll find it gets better.
I appreciate what you’re saying here; on my side of the Pond we’ve got people trying to influence what the newspapers actually publish by running campaigns to defund them. https://medium.com/@wendycockcroft/who-gets-to-decide-what-acceptable-political-views-are-3d3829fe6c53#.pc3x0dvr6
Damn, Rachel, I’m sorry this happened to you. I’m sad you feel you can’t come here again. We really ought to sort this out, there’s no excuse for it. I can tweet this and hope it goes viral (I found it on my timeline) so that the powers that be will sit up and pay attention. You deserve a huge official apology for this.
