Re: The Wealth Of Nations is the bankruptcy of Culture

It's just that Smith represents what happens when humans invent currencies, and become greedy, and focus their lives on the gain of material "wealth". He not only invented capitalism.

You don't think that currency, greed, focus on material wealth, and capitalism existed before Smith?

You should read this article from the sunday NY times that messenjah showed me, Dr. Chen from Harvard I believe, taught monkeys how to use money. There were many cases of stealing, and even a case of paying for sex. Doesn't say much for the mathematical genius that invests. Doesn't say much for almost all of the human race today does it?

Reciprocity has always existed.

"You scratch my back and I'll scratch yours."

Why is that bad?

'Liberalism is a mental disorder' - Michael Savage

It's nice to know that conservatives are at the forefront of promoting rational, civil political discourse in this country.

Bravo for supporting Mr. Savage's efforts on this front.

- Ned Flanders

"Question with boldness even the existence of God; because, if there be one, he must more approve of the homage of reason than that of blindfolded fear." - Thomas Jefferson

I explained why I didn't have to to write a good OP.

So whatever dawgs.
