- An Open Chicken Or Egg Question
I have an open question for you readers of this blog. Do you think it's economic illiteracy that pushes people toward a leftist view, or does their leftist views make it impossible for them to understand how free markets work, leaving them with economic illiteracy?
We know they hate the rich and will do anything they can (including hurting the poor) in order to get to them. But if this is simply misguided economic thinking leading them to incorrect conclusions, then there is a chance they can be redeemed with education. But if, on the other hand, their economic views are a product of their devotion to the leftist ideals of envy, subjugation, and the iron fisted rule of the elite over the masses, then we might as well give up on them.
I'm just asking...
