Why Do You Argue Against Yourself So Often?

Oh yes, I remember now... you're Alexander, product of a failed communist society (or is 'failed communist society' an oxymoron?). Your erstwhile nation chose to educate you, and sadly did not recognize your mediocre intellect... or perhaps by the time they did, it was too big an investment to forsake.

After all, against my assertion that placebos are 'effective,' you argued that placebos have "SOME effect." Hilarious! This is a lot like insisting, "whales aren't mammals! They're animals!"

Indeed, the great thing about engaging you in discussion is when someone reveals how silly you are, you're simply too stupid to see it. Hence, you continue to argue, and without realizing it you've bolstered the opinions of everyone involved. I think Pearson said it best when he questioned the veracity of 'Alexander,' whom he thought might be some caricature conceived with the express intent of making folks like me look good.

Again, I revisit my 'USSR doomed from the start' theme -- the fact that the USSR chose to educate someone so ordinary as you is proof that communism is inherently stupid, and therefore doomed.
