I am sorry to say that to you, but you have not the slightest idea of what I am talking about.
I know that you give a great deal on economics and I know that it explains your world, but you fail to see that the truth is hidden in plain view. You dont understand that your sacred economical theories are applied by people with agenda.
And this agenda is not necessarily to provide a just and lawful enviroment that offers same chances for everyone and protection of everyones rights.
If i wouldnt know you better, I would just say you are another partial blind, misguided brainwashed economical fundamentalist, but since I do, i will only say you never really doubted your own way of thinking. You are just naive when it comes to politics.
You insult me by claiming that what i said is laughable, instead of disproving any of the facts given by me to you, which you should do if you would try to have a real argument with me.
Addressing the youtube link you provided,
I want you to look at this graph :
and then compare it to this graph :
now I want to do you the math. That must be simple for you since you are a maths ace.
If you still believe the populism of Margaret Thatchers speech in the video now, that the poorest got actually richer under Thatcher, so to say "poor on a higher level", i can no longer call it ignorant or naive or blind on one eye anymore, i will have to call it stupid.
You claim that anyone in Polands poorest 50% would glady have the economic status of UK`s poorest. That remains a ridiculous statement even if I accept that unproven assumption and arbitrary number you provided. I could counter with telling you that the majority of South Africas population would glady switch their economic status with that of Poland`s poorest and that allthough South Africa offers more of your beloved economical freedom than Poland does.
Let me explain to you how poverty truely works. Poverty is not dealing in absolutes. Poverty is always dealing in relatives. If you`d have a million dollars you think you`d be rich. But if everyone else but you would have a billion dollars, you`d be a peniless pauper. UK before Thatcher had more social and economical equality to start with and obviously much more than Poland had at the same time. Given a just and fair economic framework (a social market ecomony model like Sweden applied i.e.) this could have benefited everyone in the country and not only 10% of the population, without hampering the economy of the UK in the long run. Everyone would have become richer.
It is saddening for me to see that someone like you sze, who should be smart enough to know better, is not asking for the "cui bono". It is also very or even more saddening to hear that Thatcher was truely one of the only politicans you ever respected.
That can only mean you are either loving injustice and have no social conscience, or you are totally clueless and misguided about what true and just political leader look like.
To your benefit, I think its the latter.
