Yes you did, you are putting the American identity before individual prerogative.
Identity politics includes nationalist impulses.
Benito Mussolini himself migrated from being a Marxist, to a fascist, on the basis that he found the people he talked to much preferred identifying as Italians, rather than as workers.
But both of these things are collectivism, so they suffer from the same fatal flaw when they try to tell the economy what to do. Central planning is made of fail. It never matters for who or why you do it, it never works.
Calling Hayek a “socialist” is pure ignorance.
If he’s one, then so is Ludwig von Mises and Thomas Sowell. They all come from the same economic School; the Austrians.
Nope, being a meritocracy is what made America great. Shove your warmed-over collectivism somewhere else.
It was America being a place anyone could come to prove their worth or get a second lease on life, and the Government leaving them the hell alone, so long as they weren’t harming other people.
Being the world’s largest Free trade zone, managed primarily by Common Law, did the rest.
Nope, Free Trade =/ world government.
These are not the same topic, and they never were.
The left nor socialists support free trade (go look at Bernie Sanders), so suggesting Free Trade is somehow apart of their prescription, is completely absurd, and you know it.
I’m not the one who just touted National Socialism.
OAKS? If you don’t know the genology of you arguments, don’t cite them. That should be common sense.
Go read The Road to Serfdom , and quit being a johnny-come-lately about this.
