It would take an idiot not to understand this. To try to think otherwise is lying to ones self.

If you don't like to think of it 'that way' then it cannot be that way, right?

The best info from that page:
"Stefan is clearly clueluess on Bernie Sander's policies. Something he is being called out on in the comments and dislikes of his videos. The only people this coward responds to are the vaguest of comments. Bernie will get money for education from taxing the speculation of Wall Street and by taxing billionaires at least as much as their own employees are being taxed. Do your research, Stefan and #feelthebern"

He did his own research, and addresses precisely that point. Someone isn't actually watching what they're critiquing.

Note the critique doesn't address all the other problems with Bernie's proposal, either.

(I love the new language of 'calling out' someone as if those words themselves lend a critique some kind of aura of correctness. )

First I heard of this guy, real peach:
"Stefan Molyneux and his therapist wife Christina Papadopoulos run freedomainradio (a.k.a FDR). Ms. Papadopoulos has been found guilty of professional misconduct related to FDR. Their site is supposed to be about freedom philosophy and psychology, but it is much more about a cult/scam that destroys families. If you care to communicate with me personally, my private email is molyneuxrevealed at gmail.com"

Interesting.......

Well, or you can address the actual arguments. But you're a 'who' guy, not a logic guy.

I don't know. Is judging ideas on their content and basis, instead of who makes the argument, evidence of membership in a cult ?

Quote:
Critics of Roosevelt's New Deal often liken it to fascism.

Roosevelt's numerous defenders dismiss this charge as reactionary propaganda; but as Wolfgang Schivelbusch makes clear, it is perfectly true. Moreover, it was recognized to be true during the 1930s, by the New Deal's supporters as well as its opponents.

When Roosevelt took office in March 1933, he received from Congress an extraordinary delegation of powers to cope with the Depression.

Quote:
The broad-ranging powers granted to Roosevelt by Congress, before that body went into recess, were unprecedented in times of peace. Through this "delegation of powers," Congress had, in effect, temporarily done away with itself as the legislative branch of government. The only remaining check on the executive was the Supreme Court. In Germany, a similar process allowed Hitler to assume legislative power after the Reichstag burned down in a suspected case of arson on February 28, 1933. (p. 18).
The Nazi press enthusiastically hailed the early New Deal measures: America, like the Reich, had decisively broken with the "uninhibited frenzy of market speculation." The Nazi Party newspaper, the Völkischer Beobachter, "stressed 'Roosevelt's adoption of National Socialist strains of thought in his economic and social policies,' praising the president's style of leadership as being compatible with Hitler's own dictatorial Führerprinzip" (p. 190).

Nor was Hitler himself lacking in praise for his American counterpart. He "told American ambassador William Dodd that he was 'in accord with the President in the view that the virtue of duty, readiness for sacrifice, and discipline should dominate the entire people. These moral demands which the President places before every individual citizen of the United States are also the quintessence of the German state philosophy, which finds its expression in the slogan "The Public Weal Transcends the Interest of the Individual"'" (pp. 19-20). A New Order in both countries had replaced an antiquated emphasis on rights.
Other folks lauded FDR too...a man in step with his times!
