I knew my post would be a bit controversial,

Doug,

I am not bothered by your opinions, but I am a bit put off by your style of argumentation. For example, you wrote:


"It's not likely that I'll change the minds of those who hold that private enterprise for profit is an evil that must be replaced. However, I do hope that a more nuanced view will prevail."

Now, this is a smear: I don't think anybody in this thread has said anything like "private enterprise for profit is an evil that must be replaced."

In another post you said:

"Your strong negative reaction to the use of market forces in achieving positive outcomes ...."

This is also a smear: I don't think anyone has written against "the use of market forces...," or indicated that they prefer negative outcomes.

It is good to have one's views challenged. It is less good to have one's views misrepresented.....
