    Wow TD .. is this like a "yoda-ism" ... ?

    How are people supposed to respond to that? Your vague "clever" comments simply hold no ground; learn to explain yourself. I know you can; you should be able to, right counselor?

    Could be the case, but explain.

    In the final layout, I don't think there would be any "schemes". Everyone instead would already know and accept exactly what they need to do to keep society functioning properly.

    You're one of those people that believe the only way people learn stuff is through schools.
    Sad, I guess all new workers that come to a construction company are perfectly knowledgeable, about the entire construction process, and will never learn anything new and beneficial about construction.
    We were talking about the educational system. This is another example of you dishonestly leaving facts out


    Incorrect.
    It requires some form of ownership, either in commons or under the state.


    Wrong. I'll repeat from the definition YOU provided
    either state owned or commonly owned and controlled cooperatively"
    The medical system is controlled by the state. The state belongs to the people.

    No matter how wrong you are, you never admit it.
    No ethics or personal accountability.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    I didn't say that.
    You can't even have a debate without reframing the argument to suite your personal dishonesty.
