Yet again, you prove me right: You have nothing useful to offer. Your
"philosophical musings" are utterly useless and meaningless to, for
instance, homeless people who are suffering *right now* because of
lack of government that is paid for: Lack of proper food, proper
shelter, proper health care provided by government to those who need
it, which has to be paid for. Only that which you condemn - government
action that is paid for, where this mathematical economics you condemn
provides the road map for its financing - can save those who need
saving in this regard. (You think private charity can do it? Fact: It
never has met more than a few percentage points of this need, and this
is because it cannot meet any more than a few percentage points of
this need. You do not believe this? Then try to prove otherwise - and
I will destroy your attempted proof with the mathematical facts that
you don't know because of your choice to deny the science of
