    That just tells me the market needs phones that don't need to be reset. It doesn't tell me that there's some amount of labor that is unable to be developed. There's plenty...

    Inefficiency wastes value. The money isn't value. The money just measures the value. The problem is that it's not a fixed instrument. We can and do easily make more of it...

    Technology doesn't get harder to use over time. It gets easier to use over time. The entire point of the complication is to produce some type of efficiency. While the...

    Automation doesn't replace labor per se. Automation increases the efficiency of a unit of labor. Automation isn't just begining. We've been automating labor since the...

    False dilemma. Currency is a measuring tool, a unit of account, used for the exchange of value. It is a ruler. Adding lines to a ruler does not have any effect on the...

    It's entirely possible for an experiment to be controlled and free running. Free choice can exist in a regulated system.

    Now that I better understand your meaning: I don't think either side's attacks are mediated by the need for excuse. When the acquisition of power is on the line, all bets...

    I take a different view on the meaning of this, mainly because it's often stripped from context. "For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged, and with the...

    Weird. You injected yourself into a conversation to defend someone else, lost the plot, then tried to save face with an accusation of whining. I'm not concerned with...
