Do you actually believe that capitalism can provide the means to universally
eradicate poverty? That if every "lazy, stupid" etc. poor person "got off
their lazy ass" they could live a life of abundance? Have you *ever*
traveled to the third world? Can you possibly believe that the only reason
some people are poor is because they are "programmed" to believe the lie
that they cannot live any other way?
Compared to Lorrey economics, the Lorrey drive looks downright feasible ;)
