@Bass: you think a plough or a harvester is a bad invention aswel?
as it puts hundreds of people out of a job.
How about a shovel? how about an electronic switchboard?
How about this forum? You are putting postal workers out of a job by using this forum, kind of hypocritical don't you think?
It's called progress, we free ourselves from trivial jobs, increasing efficiency, decreasing costs and freeing up people to perseu better work.
As to your being a fan of big gov, we tried that, didn't work. People died.
Of course it was always the wrong kind of socialism, not enough socialism, the wrong people doing socialism, excuses excuses. Socialism has never worked, neither has society run by government. It has always done more harm then good, making people poor and making people suffer. I can't for the life of me figure out why you can be for that.
