The Brutality of Reason Example

By Ironcross One-One

Slicing and dicing things into pieces small enough
to be fed to Liberals, Kooks and Anti-Americans.

If you are the emotional liberal type, this mindspace will make you uncomfortable. If you think my logic or facts are faulty, lets discuss it. When your findings disagree with my findings, that is dialogue. But using rhetoric to disagree with science is demogoguery. No demogoguery! I usually refrain from insults, but occasionally, ignorance and liberal hypocrisy bring out the worst in me.

Easy Pickins

Don't expect to hear the MSM howling about a socialist country with an unemployment problem. It tarnishes the image. Socialist Utopia Germany has itshighest unemployment since the great depression. Anybody wonder why? If you don't know, go back and read this blog from day one. It can be distilled into three words: Socialism Doesn't Work

Socialism the concept of "more pay for less work" which extrapolates to "everything for nothing." Each worker is entitled to an increasing share of less. Do the math... Einstein.

Rosie O'Donnell was there, but she didn't mention the gun totin' bodyguard that protects her kids.

The sun kicked the hell out of the ozone layer in Oct 03. Article says researchers have difficulty determining what ozone damage is natural and what is manmade. No kidding? Some ozone damage is natural? That star that's that dumps 15,000,000,000,000 BTU's per day on us from 8 light-minutes away can affect the ozone layer? Who-da-thunk-it?

Sheesh!

"Some ozone damage is natural"

No offence, but if you're trying to claim the the holes in the ozone layer aren't a direct result of man, then your blog has no more business being titled "The Brutality of Reason" than a tobacco-scientist paper.

But yes, solar storms (which are a far cry from ordinary sunlight) can destroy ozone. Various oxides of hydrogen and nitrogen form in the upper atmosphere as a result of intense radiation. These oxides, while usually short-lived, can be pushed deeper into our atmosphere and cause a chain reaction that causes an ozone loss in the middle mesosphere.

While real, this effect does not explain the presence of large holes in the ozone layer. These have best been explained as existing due to the binding effects of electronegative elements like chlorine and bromine, which make their way high into the atmosphere thanks to such sources as CFCs.

Anyone ever notice how the enviro-fanatics will tell why the ozone hole gets bigger but they never remember to tell you why it gets smaller. It's a self balancing phenomenon. Ultra-violet radiation creates ozone until the ozone is thick enough to block the ultra-violet radiation. Think of it as an ozone machine with an automatic shut-off valve.

The sun has been destroying the ozone layer since day 1. It's also been manufacturing ozone since day 1. We may actually be able to harm the ozone layer. Or not. Inconclusive at this point.

People who are characterized by caution don't want to risk it. If you don't want to risk it, change your lifestyle but leave mine alone. I don't live that way, I'll risk it. I'll change mine when I'm convinced that the self-balancing system isn't cutting it.

If we are doing such damage to the atmosphere, how come global life expectancy keeps increasing?

Just Wondering.

Easy pickins indeed. It's just as easy to look at the unemployment rates for certain capitalist countries such as Chile and Nigeria and claim the opposite is true. I wouldn't make that argument, however, because the issue is a far more complicated. The U.S. enemployment stats are comparatively good, but how do you explain away the unemployment statistics for Norway, Iceland, Switzerland? Oil revenues, population demographics, infrastructure, natural resources, and other factors mean that many countries you'd probably consider "socialist" seem to be working quite well.

The 'brutality of reason' should reveal that there's not a one size fits all prescription for economic prosperity in every country.

Switzerland? Norway? Finland? Many things, but not socialist. Some socialized aspects, but not in the death grip of the trade unions.

If you read this blog, you'll see that I attribute success to the profitable use of investment. All capital, whether human, financial or natural resource can contribute to success if properly invested. What pays no dividends is diverting capital (any kind) to programs and efforts that do not result in a conversion of effort into value. Effort creates value, nothing else ever has. Any program that delivers value without requiring effort is counter-productive.
Show me the Socialist Utopia of today and I'll show you the has-been nation of tomorrow.
