Jeff, you seem to think you can live without all those "non-value-added" services, including your own example: electricity.

Suffice it to say that you're mistaken.

For a lawyer your comprehension skills seem to be below par. I've said in every post that services are sometimes necessary. But they are no foundation for an economy. I'm sorry if that hurts your feelings but it is an economic reality. It's not my opinion. It simply "IS". If you want a good stable economy, you have to make stuff.

And I never said we don't have to make stuff.

What I have said is that it takes much more than you seem willing to acknowledge to do that. You simply can't "make stuff" without electricity and other infrastructure, as well as the whole range of support people you like to devalue, from secretaries to the cleaning staff, as well as a marketing, sales and legal framework, encompassing all the people who do that work, including lawyers.

The arrogance of you Ron Paulers is breathtaking. You think you need nobody but yourself. You don't even think you need each other. And that's why you get nowhere; because you have no concept of the team enterprise that has been at the core of every society throughout history.

Good thing you have paralegals doing your work for you, because you'd stave with your reading skills. I hope you give them a raise.

I'm fairly certain, you and your ilk will get your wish. Enjoy....
