    Ok ... but if you're going to engage in almost ANY discussion about politics, or economics or anything, you're gonna run into value statements whether you like it or not, and and every political theory, political concept or political question necessarily deals with value statements and value judgements.

    Well, didn't I tell you that it was a matter of authority? If I as a Libertarian prevail, flat tax will be right. If you as a Socialist prevail, progressive tax will be right. Please, listen to the podcast, those things are discussed there.

    Ok, well if that is your position what is there to discuss?

    Ok, but I don't see the point of that if there can be no such thing as justice or anything like that.

    But go ahead, if you have a point to make, make it.
    My point there was simply and only that you had failed to answer one.

    That is sadly incorrect. Social Justice as expressed politically seems to be defined by the idea of trodding on those who are identified as the historical winners in order to raise up those who are identified as the historical losers.

    Social Justice="Ask not what you can do for your country, but ask what can your country do for you." in the same way that 'gay' used to mean happy.

    You'll have to be more specific. I think you're just repeating the talking point rethoric of the uniformed.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    On the surface, social justice is good for some, and bad for others. In reality, it's disastrous for everyone, it's just that some are used to worse all around them, so a little less worse becomes everything.
