One need only look at marxism-a failed set of policies that killed millions and left the rest poor. That was a minority idea, and it will remain so.
Its important that you dont confuse adopting capitalist policies (in the case of china-they saw the writing on the wall with marxism), with capitalism.
In this way, its like palliative care-a temporary relief of symptoms in a terminally ill patient.
Well, in some countries an expiremental process has to occur in order to determine what works and what does not work. That is the reason why I stated that its dangerous to change society overnight. Slow gradual change is necissary in order to keep us from putting all our eggs in one basket and getting them all crushed. We have to throw ideas out there, good or bad, and expiriment with them. If they don't work, we get rid of them before they do more damage.One need only look at marxism-a failed set of policies that killed millions and left the rest poor.

- There was never a good war, or a bad peace.
- Idealistically, everything should work as you planed it to. Realistically, it depends on how idealistic you are as to the measure of success.
- Better to be a pessimist before, and an optimist afterwords.
Why is it instead of worrying about your self leftists invariably get around to forcing others to do as they wish? Your opinions on the 2nd reflect ignorance. The 2nd is ALL ABOUT self defense-from the govt or anyone else who would seek to take our rights. The founders knew exactly what the 2nd meant-it meant the rights of all individuals-THE PEOPLE. This same term THE PEOPLE is found all over the constitution and bill of rights-and there is no confusion there. Moreover several SCOTUS cases affirmed this right, as well as over 2 centuries of case law. The only "confusion" is falsely presented by the left-as a means to infringe that very right. Only now, and because the left says so-are things "confusing". Please its silly.
Separate from the 2nd, the right to self defense already exists-its a natural right. Ever seen a lion running down a gazelle? The gazelle runs and runs, and if its taken down it kicks and it bites and it fights for its life. Nobody thinks its wrong to do so. But for some reason leftists here in the US would seek to prevent Americans from using the most effective means to self defense-guns. Moreover-I could use anything to protect myself, from my hands to a blunt implement to a knife-the right exists separately from anything to do with firearms-and it exists OUTSIDE of the constitution, which merely recognizes some rights.
Debate to your hearts content-nothing changes this-its not granted by any document.
Sources please. Many industrialized countries make do without cars for every family, without multiple cars per family, and have much more robust public transportation. *People* can adapt lifestyle and where they live. Most people in America dont NEED cars outside of convenience. Otherwise they have other options. If people in the US were truly as upset about car collateral as you say they are with gunfire collateral, there would be movements to restrict those too. Sorry, we just 'like' our cars and the convenience. It's just a matter of perspective...not fact.
And our nation's experience with firearms is pretty good....that's why we are free and also make it easier for us to remain so.
That would be a real shame. If a child or teens broke in. And even tho I probably would be held legally liable, morally ***by no means would it be my fault or responsibility that the gun I leave ready to save my life was used that way,***
That's a fact. Darwin can be a bitch.
The vehicles have lots of mechanical and structural regulations. We have lots of laws to prevent car misuse and promote safetly.
Millions die or are injured every year.
So apparently it's not the cars themselves or the laws. Because personal irresponsiblity causes most accidents.
