Was it not FDR that gave USA “social security”?
Or, is that too “socialistic” for you? LOL!
You have a problem answering simple questions?
You have a problem with simple logic?
Apparently, you have that problem.
It does not take much logic to answer simple questions.
Apparently, you think that saddling future generations with an unsustainable entitlement program somehow negates throwing over 100,000 innocent Americans into concentration camps.
HMMMM. Sapir comes across a little too much like Bishop Berkeley for my taste .
The employment outcomes for philosophers is interesting. One aspect of recent academia I’m all to aware of is you can take an intelligent student, put them through an M BA degree and often a complete moron comes out the other end. And we go on to appoint these drips as deans of universities. Or as that old Hungarian saying has it ‘The fish rots from the head down’.
Agreed; the US internment of Japanese & German civilians during WWII was an embarrassment to US valued liberty.
However, social security at old age is not to be dismissed, but fixed. It’s a separate issue.
Living as I do in a nation operating very sucessfully on a mix of capitalism and the welfare state I find the black and white arguments Americans have about all this utterly mindless and absurdly tribal. Wake up America !
Anyone who imagines logic is simple has a problem, including quantum logic, informal logic, deontic logic, higher order logic, intentional logic, mathematical logic, pluralitive logic, combinatory logic, three valued logic, symbolic logic, formal logic, second order logic, logical atomism etc - - - - - - - - Take for instance in a language supposedly logically perfect ( whatever that means) the logical form of a proposition, a set of propositions, or an argument is determined by the grammatical form of the sentence, the set of sentences, or the argument-text expressing it. Nightmarish stuff, really.
Separate names with a comma.
