Re: Tietaja - free market
first im not libertarian. im perhaps a moderate centrist with a lot of respect for the core values of certain civilizations that are reason, freedom, and the value of the individual as itself notsomuch as means to an end (that is a formulation of categorical imperative). i suppose you could rather call me a german idealist.
second i dont know what neo lib or neoliberal or whatever actually means so i cant comment on it. if it means things above then certainly i am one.
there is no amount of legislation that can solve the problem (im not so sure one exists, if such does i refer to silenus) that is keeping up with the joneses.
"Oh, wretched race of a day, children of chance and misery, why do ye compel me to say to you what it were most expedient for you not to hear? What is best of all is for ever beyond your reach: not to be born, not to be, to be nothing. The second best for you, however, is soon to die". Silenus, tutor to Dionysos, speaking to King Midas.
