Lets just let it go. Neither of is going to convince the other. I value freedom and want more and you are ok with me not being free.
If you really want to continue we can but that second post is just hogwash. An opinion piece with no details of why Mises is wrong about human nature.
Continuing this would be a great waste of time for me and probably the same for you because you don’t want to give up your religion and I understand. I think Mises is absolutely right on what he says about human nature. I also think it is laughable when a Keyesian says no serious economist, like Keyes was the 2nd coming of Adam Smith or something. (I didn’t read the first one but will try and just edit here)
As for the 1st part of your response above, my best response to that author is “That’s just like your opinion man”. But if you think praxeology is immoral and I think government is evil, I don’t think we are going to go any where anyway.
I also think you would much rather argue Cronyism vs Social Democracy and I can’t do that. If you want to get into why you think more government would be better than less, I can argue that but it probably should be a new thread since this is about TDS, and PTDS. and I am sure most are tired of us discussion something way off topic. It might not matter as much as I think and please do not feel obligated to answer but how old are you and what is your profession?
