For prosperity to be guaranteed, argued the free marketeers, the power of the state must be curtailed, and its interfering hands forcefully removed from the economic levers.The paradox of the free market lies in the political implications of those two words: “curtailed” and “forcefully”.
Those who believe as you do are simply not available to the sort of debate that takes as its starting point the reality of events in historical time and their continuing influence on the present and future.
This sort of debate assumes an opponent who exists in the same historical time-frame, and who is subject to the same physical laws as myself.
Which you do and are, of course, but, mysteriously, you don't think you do.
Yours is a strange Platonic sort of universe: a world of ideal concepts and forms - which simply doesn't respond to the logic of the gritty old world the rest of us inhabit - down here on Planet Earth.
So, I'll just say that I enjoyed your posting. It is, I reckon, a little masterpiece of its kind.
But, in terms of having a discussion about what really happens - or is likely to happen (out there on the high seas, for example) - there really isn't anything to get to grips with.
Like Plato's ideal chair, it looks very sturdy in my mind's eye, but, unfortunately, when I try it sit down on it there's simply nothing there.
