I'm alright and fuck the rest eh klintock?
Just one that respects other people's right to do whatever they want provided they don't injure me or anyone else doing it.
That doesn't mean you can rope me into schemes to help those I don't give two shits about however.
The point is klintock, that some people aren't capable of looking out for themselves
I don't want to live in a society where everyone is only out for themselves
That's why you're a cunt and I'm not.
E.g. blagsta has a gun shop selling ok guns for the anarchists to perform hostile takeovers with (somethign along those lines)... then you decide to make a gunshop too, that happens to sell higher quality guns, and you decide that you can afford to sell them cheaper... that would 'injure' blagsta... how could we ever be in a situation where ppl can do what they want and not hurt others? (the hurting others being inadvertant)..
Like who, exactly. Give me an example.
Tough shit, that's the way it is, that's the way it always will be. Even your desire for everyone looking out for each other (a desire which I share but am not daft enough to think can happen) is only because it will benefit you and yours in the long run. in fact, it's only because of the feelings that you will get that you do anything.
I'm just self aware mate. I can be a cunt, but I am not usually.
It doesn't injure Blagsta to have to come up with better quality products to retain his market. Even if it did, which I don't accept, it benefits everyone else and so Blagsta's own position should see him "taking one for the team."
Children, old people, ill people, the mentally ill, people with alcohol problems, people with drug problems, plenty of people.
I pity you.
You appear to have all the empathy of an amoeba.
All those people can do things, even the mentally ill.
If you get old without sensibly looking after your future..well, that can I say?
Why? To be fair, I feel sorry for you if it comes to it, you seem so angry and powerless.
So does everyone else, you just aren't looking at it right.
What is he doesn't want to work harder? He mightve been happy producing what he was producing, in the way he was producing them --- his customers might've even been happy..
By opening up a shop you would have fucked him right over :P
I'm fine thanks. You're the one that sees people in terms of what you can get from them. From what you post on here, I'd guess you're either Aspergers or a sociopath. Not that you'd recognise that or admit it.
By opening up a shop I seek to serve customers and make myself a living. All I have done is offer people a choice. If they pick me, then fair enough, if they don't then fair enough. It's up to me in this situation to give people what they want at a price they are happy with. It's individuals choices that make the whole thing work.
Like I said before you do everything because of the way it will make you feel. Prove me wrong please, if you can.
That is more sensibly put-- i'm not disagreeing with you, competition is healthy but to expect someone elses innocent actions to never have a derogatory effect on you seems far fetched...
Anyway...as for the thing saying everyone should fend for themselves, you really need to see other peoples situations, everyone wants to be able to fend for themselves but certain people will be in situations where they cant find the motivation or strength to do what needs to be done...
Saying 'thats life' is pretty selfish... maybe you have worked hard for what you have, and gotten ureself where u wanta be, but everyone is in different circumstances, most of which they have no control over...it isn't as easy as you make out
I haven't, no ...
And as for the strength/motivation thing ... Why shouldn't the people who have been lucky enough to have it easy not help those who havent?
I'm not saying it's your problem, but maybe it should be... You might realise this when something shit happens to someone you know
Why do you assume that shit things haven't happened to me and the people I choose to spend my time with?
Because you give the impression that once you are sorted, everything is ok...

i find it strange that blagsta actualy believes that there is a free market in operation. :chin:
I don't. Where have I said that I do? I wish you'd learn to read properly, it might save us a few arguments.

your answers ...
A free market economy only caters to the wealthy.
In a free market economy how do poor people get access to decent housing? To healthcare? To social care?
So the lack of affordable housing in London has nothing to do with free market policies then?
or is iy a case of me misunderstanding again?
We have some free market policies, yes. But we don't live in a total free market as we still have (some) council housing, NHS etc. Although more and more of these are being sold off into private hands so we are moving more and more towards a free market. OK?
