    You have really gotten brainwashed by Ron, eh? Let's crawl into a cacoon so we can be completely self protected. And you've called me a revisionist. Why not revisit Woodrow's League of Nations?

    You can see how rapidly history is changing in your profession, but you now want all the world to return to a form of protectionism?

    The Libertarians have many good policies. For that matter, so does Objectivism. I can find many of their 'principles' valueable. But buying into "the whole thing" is about as 'unscientific' as one can get...and we all know how you believe in 'science'.

    I think they have gone backwards.
    I think they are older than Christainity.
    at one time they took the lead in math and science.
    not no more.

    AH, but saying Islam started with Mohamed is like saying Christianity started with John Calvin.
