    Are you slow? The quote you were supposed to be showing was my claim that Hayek did not support social insurance

    Most 'liberals' are unaware of the ideology they really support.

    When they say the want to increase taxes on the rich, they don't realise they are actually supporting people to hand over money at the point of a gun. Their ideology lacks basic ethical foundations such as universaility.
    They don;t see it like that. (Well I do, but I see it as justified ). This is the same gun that enforces your private property rights and protects your wealth. Keeps the power of unions in check. Upholds the rule of law. This gun does lots of stuff.

    You're the one with the simplistic world view. If you can't understand that people think differently or may come to different conclusion then it is you who are intellectually immature.

    How about you admit you haven't read it and just downloaded bs from the Mises Institute and are pretending to know something about it?
    If you think Hayek was in favour of socialised provision of medicine and other services, it is you who is pretending to know something you clearly do not.

    You are clearly utterly clueless about the period Hayek spent as consultant to the Conservative Party in the immediate postwar period, the advice he gave to Churchill re the 1945 election, Churchill's "Gestapo" speech.

    You are a ****ing ignoramus when it comes to British history and economics

    Good sir would you please do me the honour of going to page 5 and confirming that what I said is consistent, and that it is not me that is insane.

    Where is your evidence for this? I have given you evidence from two of his works to the contrary, you have ignored it and pretended to have an understanding of it.

    They agree with definitions but then do not follow them to the logical conclusions.


    It is ridiculous to suggest the state is a protector of property rights, they tell you have much you may keep of your own stuff and enforce things like 'intelligentual property' which is a gross aberation of property.

    So you're claiming Hayek wasn't consulting for the Conservative Party in '45 and after?

    You're just making a fool of yourself now.

    To lazy and I've rea dit all before.



    Bscially I do my best to think for myself and I have come to conclusion progressive taxation in some variant of state capitalist society is preferable for moral, economic and social reasons. I'm willing to change my mind should evidence or convincing moral philosophy persuade me.

    I never made that claim. On the contrary I have reduced my venom towards you and have been trying to resolve this civil. You have no intention however; I have pointed out evidence from two of his writings to which you have simply ignored or danced around; and now you make claims that you cannot support.

    Fair enough. My position is actually similiar... I'm just defending Hayek from false allegations lol.

    With logic like that it doesn't matter, your going to come out with a third. I'm not even from the UK. You have no argument I can't be bothered anymore. I've tried but I can't debate with a pigeon.
