Comment: Choose easy targets.

Choose easy targets.

I have been successful in "converting" only one of these people to the ideas of free market capitalism. That was because we worked together, emailed each other all day debating these topics, and over the course of a few months, my logic finally won out. However, if you don't have that kind of time, my suggestion is to pick easier targets. There are people out there who are much more open to liberty than the Occupy and Zietgeist crowd. I agree with the fellow who said that they don't think rationally. It just takes more time than it is worth to continue to try to educate those who aren't open to the education. They are more likely to vote Democrat and believe in socialism. Our movement is going through the Republican party, and as much as many of them resist us, my opinion is that they are still more open to our ideas of liberty than OWS or Zietgeist.

Free market capitalism isn't right for America because it works better. It's right because it's free (and it works better).
