Yeah, it's quite weird to realize that the Dems are actually the most capitalist party right now. And also to realize how far removed the Libertarians (and most Republicans) are from capitalism.

Yeah, me too. You see a considerable uptick on r/politics from T_D contributors roughly when Moscow opens for work.

Lol, nah. It was on a flyer when I was looking for inspiration, and I've always liked the saying "still waters run deep".

Really? What a small world!

The part of the creation myth about the cicada was when the first people wanted to reach the final world (our world). There are different versions of why they moved on, with some saying that their present world was becoming flooded. There were reeds that stretched all the way up to the next world, but none were able to reach the next world. Finally the cicada tried, climbed up the reed and managed to dig his way through the soil into the white world. Then the humans (and others) were able to come through as well.

That was the short version. You can find the creation myth online. I think the reason they seemed magical to me is that we heard the tales orally, while visiting friends in the reservation. The tale was quite elaborate.

So, the guy that a judge said "has demonstrated a pattern of misleading the court about the facts and record in a voting rights case unfolding in Kansas," is leading the committee on Election Integrity?!?!

I can't believe there isn't more outrage about this. Thank goodness we have the ACLU.

I partly grew up in New Mexico, and loved hearing the creation myths of the Hopi. The first people arrived in this world with the help of the cicada. It has given cicadas a special meaning to me.

I read "Wealth of Nations" while at business school many years ago.

I find it weird how often people will say something is leftist when in fact it is something Adam Smith would be fully supportive of (for example government intervention to ensure net neutrality). Or they believe capitalism leads to the opposite conclusion of what Smith actually advocated or warned about (e.g. Citizens United).

So many today proclaim they are fervent followers of capitalism, yet have an incredibly poor understanding of this philosophy and the founding tract of Adam Smith.

Your post made me order the book so I can read it again.

    ideas from regular citizens

The_Donald are far from regular citizens!

I also noticed that devinm666 was a regular contributor on SJWHate. He's certainly an extremist.

These are the signs of democracy reaching the end.

I think he has signed the Russia sanctions bill.

Economics as a study pre-dates many STEM fields as academic study.
