    So you think spending 22 trillion(United states) with very little results is a good thing?

    If you want to have a rational argument, then let's have one. Using anecdotes is the exact opposite of having a rational argument. It's spewing uninformed and useless noise that detracts from and diminishes the discussion to a mudslinging contest of who can form the best emotional appeal to the listener.

    A rational argument would not rely on such contrivances to construct and reinforce its point.

    It helps to see what works and what doesn’t. We can learn from other people’s successes and failures.

    I didn't ask you anything. You should read the thread. I replied to your anecdote only, and deny your bootstraps narrative as useless drivel, because I myself have an anecdote that runs counter to your narrative. Hence why anecdotes are useless.

    I could of course spew out my anecdote; in the vain hopes it appeals to the emotion of a reader, but I won't, because it's just that - an emotional appeal instead of an informed and logical, rational argument.
