i wouldn't hang the pejorative "greed" on it. i use "self interest". one man's greed is another's ambition. one will always work hardest for themselves and their families than they will for the neighbor- especially the neighbor in another city, state, or country.
Orwell was an optimist.
#4 is the key. Socialism/Communism will ALWAYS fail because it depends on 'better', far more selfless, altruistic human beings to succeed. That will NEVER happen. Capitalism succeeds because it harnesses the entirely natural human inclination to work hardest for yourself & family, everybody doing their best in their own self interest, which redounds to the ultimate benefit of society.
my sentiments EXACTLY. nothing & nobody can be held to the specific content of what was said or written if this BS is allowed to stand.
yes, as the late Tim Russert would be saying, "Let's go to the videotape, where you said..."
pretty soon they'll be claiming the entire 2,700 page fiasco is just a typo.

to be fair, even if Botox Nan had read it- and managed to comprehend it (not a given), she still would have signed off on it wholeheartedly. in other words, she knew from the get go she would be 100% behind this unconstitutional usurpation and the particulars made no real difference.
