Re: A Good Chair is Hard to Find (Ezra Klein & Will Wilkinson)

Again, I just want to say that conservatives are wary of "collections.....". You are correct that we are free to do this and that's a good thing. However, these situations are fraught with pitfalls...

Re: A Good Chair is Hard to Find (Ezra Klein & Will Wilkinson)

You make some excellent points. I pulled out my survey of philosophy to look up Burke and what you say about upholding tradition and being suspicious of change are true of him and his writings....

Re: A Good Chair is Hard to Find (Ezra Klein & Will Wilkinson)

I suppose it depends on the definition of collectivist.Now that I look up the definition, I see that you are correct. I thought that it refered to collections of people acting in concert to achieve...

Re: A Good Chair is Hard to Find (Ezra Klein & Will Wilkinson)

That's an interesting distinction. I don't see how corporations are collective unless they act as a group. Then they form lobbies, as you said. I didn't say that unions are not voluntary, but in some...

Where does this definition of conservatism come from? It does not seem consistent with either the conservative movement in the US, taken as a whole, or, of course, conservatism...

Re: A Good Chair is Hard to Find (Ezra Klein & Will Wilkinson)

I'm not sure how I've played the victim card. Perhaps you can enlighten me.

Never heard of Fark so I guess there's an imposter badhatharry running around the web.

Also, I'm quite amazed at the...

Re: A Good Chair is Hard to Find (Ezra Klein & Will Wilkinson)

Thanks for the inside scoop. I have to say that my first foray into a AGW discussion made me feel like the sharks were circling.

It is interesting how people like to line up.

Re: A Good Chair is Hard to Find (Ezra Klein & Will Wilkinson)

I guess we'll just have to disagree about the marriage thing. I believe in marriage. I think it's great. I think it's great for kids. It's just that lately it's been reduced to a mere shadow of...

Re: A Good Chair is Hard to Find (Ezra Klein & Will Wilkinson)

As far as Prop 8, it was pretty popular, I have to agree. However, the institute of marriage has been changing steadily since the 60's. Divorce and shacking up are the norm. Why should we put this...

Re: A Good Chair is Hard to Find (Ezra Klein & Will Wilkinson)

I listened to Rush every day when he first went on the air. That's a long time ago! Since I work alone, it was good company. But truly I think I've heard every thing he has to say and besides he's...

Re: A Good Chair is Hard to Find (Ezra Klein & Will Wilkinson)

Good question! and on topic, too. We are living longer which has created all kinds of problems which entend to social security, pensions and health care. It makes one wonder what the big assault on...

Re: A Good Chair is Hard to Find (Ezra Klein & Will Wilkinson)

Rush Limbaugh is/was popular because...

Re: A Good Chair is Hard to Find (Ezra Klein & Will Wilkinson)

Re: A Good Chair is Hard to Find (Ezra Klein & Will Wilkinson)

"What is your point Will? Spit it out!"

But I did learn that an IKEA refrigerator is essentially as good as a Viking
