"Personally, I don't believe that a free market system is the best system to use to achieve significant social development. That's because:

"Basically, we are still, at our subconscious core, still apes. The only difference is that our poop fights are now nuclear. Although, apes do not kill each other over differences of creed. In that respect, are we more than animals? Or less..."
"I think Native Son nailed it. I'll go further. Not only are these things not taught in schools, there are few apprenticeships, and few fathers willing and able to teach this (many reasons). I'd dare say that in some…"
