The irony is that if Christians took the Bible seriously we would not be in a trade war to begin with.

Why? Because assets would be much more equally owned and inexpensive foreign goods and labor would not be such a threat to American workers since American workers would also be American capital owners.

Economics as target group marketing
Comment on Matt Franko on ‘AOC Gardening’

Your critical evaluation of AOC is, of course, objectively correct: “Climate nutter thinks photosynthesis is ‘magic!’ LOL! Hey moron ever hear of:
6CO2 + 6H2O ------> C6H12O6 + 6O2
Try taking a biochemistry course some time Liberal Art trained moron!!! LOL!!!! Probably withdraw failing after the second week!!! LOL Unqualified dialectic trained moron!!!!”

What you overlook, however, is that 99.9 percent of the population is born/living/dying in the Circus Maximus and has no truck whatsoever with science.

AOC cannot be taken seriously because she is a creature of the marketing-PR department of the party apparatus designed for the new voter generation. To recall, AOC’s profile is the perfect mirror image of her predecessor Joseph Crowley (male-old-white-rich-educated). “Mr. Crowley was defeated by a 28-year-old political newcomer, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, a former organizer for Bernie Sanders’s presidential campaign, who had declared it was time for generational, racial and ideological change.”#1

That Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has no idea of anything does not matter at all because neither has her target group. The marketing-PR department sees to it that she echos what the opinion polls tell them the target group wants to hear. Politics is emotion management and has at best homeopathic reality content.

It is pretty obvious that the MMT loudspeakers apply the same marketing strategy.#2 Since Adam Smith/Karl Marx, economics has NOTHING to do with science but with political agenda pushing. Economists are NOT scientists but clowns and useful idiots in the Circus Maximus.#3 MMTers are NO exception.#4
