Economics is, in contrast to as what it is sold as, _no_ science. It's 
total crap. Far away from logic, far away from humanism, far away from 
being useable in whatever way.

Must be a ultra-important book, if it's so secret. Wow.

The interplay is just plain fucking simple: There are, for decades now, 
100,000 people dying of hunger each and every single day, *although* 
there's enough being produced to feed double the amount of people living 
on this planet: Mankind could feed *twelve billion* people. But nobody 
of those 'in power' wants to do it.

There's war spread all over the world by the world's most democratic 
country, in order to get geopolitical advantages and *oil*. Hundrets of 
thousands of people dying in these wars.

Why is that? It's main purpose is to keep *your* V8 running and *you* 
able to buy an iPhone. This is in order that *you* *don't* start *thinking*.

But this is now totally OT; please feel free to send me private email, I 
like this kind of discussion as I'm very interested and active in 
policital things. Please do *NOT* cc: freebsd-current at .
