so who do you parrot for your confirmation bias then?
No one. You won't find me constantly cut&pasting someone else's words as a response, like you often do. It's okay, some people prefer to let others do their thinking for them. They usually can't comprehend others who think for themselves and will mindlessly accuse them of nonsense like worshipping ayn rand.

The more a society doesn't understand economics, the more socialist it becomes.
Right. That's why we should bring back child labor--one of the first things socialists get rid of when they achieve some power.

Then we should get rid of minimum wage laws and overtime rules, which at one time were considered unconstitutional.

Social security? A socialist fraud.

Medicare? More of the same.

Exactly right.

Some get their news from one source and believe everything they are told without question.

Whether it is Rachel Maddow, Hannity, Lawrence O'Donnel, or Rush Limbaugh, you should get news from a variety of sources, and MAKE UP YOUR OWN MIND.

I knew one lady who said she hated Fox News.

I asked why.

She said because they lie all the time.

I asked which programs lie.

She said "I don't know, Ive never watched them".

What an idiotic thing to say...

At least you've started to think. Now work on your comprehension.
Since that seems to be one of your more common retorts, maybe the inability to comprehend others or explain your opinions is more your own problem? Or maybe your nameless ideology demands you insult those who disagree with you.

But Sociopathism does seem to be an apt name.
