Are you serious?! War/Conflict is human nature, we MUST fight one another on every scale. Be it a minor argument or all out war. Thinking "having a better economy will bring peace" will get you killed when it comes time to fight.
In summary, War is a very last resort. We as humans attempt to be peaceful, for the most part. But nothing will or can stop conflict.


I'd never contradict the commander of an entire Army of Scorpions. :-S

It makes me happy to be last in the region for social conservatism as a result of having the highest civil rights.

I would love it if free trade and a strong economy led to peace (as libertarian doctrine says it should) - but it does not.

Richard Cobden and John Bright argued this case in the 19th century - but the theory crashed and burned in 1914.

Britain had Free Trade and imported lots-and-lots of stuff from Germany - this did NOT prevent Germany declaring war on Russia (Britain would not have gone to war over that - or for Balkan disputes either, there had already been two Balkan wars in the previous couple of years), and then declaring war on France (the German Declaration of War upon France in 1914 reads as if it was written by a mentally ill person - it has the French bombing Bavaria and lots of other stuff they had-not-done) and invading Belgium - basically tying to take control over the coastline opposite this island.

All the talk about "war is not in your economic interests" by the Liberal British government of the day (Prime Minister Asquith, Foreign Secretary Sir Edward Grey ........) was dismissed by the anti capitalist "Supreme Warlord" (the German Emperor) and his anti capitalist ministers. Money was beneath them - they were filled with dreams of conquest. President Woodrow Wilson's academic peacemaking efforts were treated with just about as much respect as President Barack Obama's academic peacemaking efforts have been - by everyone from Putin, to puppet Assad, to the Islamic Republic of Iran, to North Korea, to expansionist People's Republic of China......

Sadly this is all too common. People are often rather nasty and telling the "X is not in your rightly understood long term economic interests" often just does not impress them.

I wish it did - I wish Cobden and Bright (and so on) had been correct - economically they were were correct (I am a Free Trader and pro Capitalist), but in military terms they were, they did not understand human nature.

People such as General Ludendorff (basically the ruler of Germany in the later half of the First World War - a man full of "War Socialism" and bizarre racial theories - leading, in his fantasies, to the conquest of the world by the German master race in endless war) tend to get to the top - in a lot of times and places.

And, in the end, there is only one answer to people to people such as General Lundendoff. Sometimes violence has to be met with violence.

Alternatively one can try reasoning - like the long (and closely argued) letters that the future Kaiser Wilhelm the Second's English mother wrote to him at school.

Full of the best liberal thinking of the time - on the arts as well as economics and so on.

But young Wilhelm was not interested - even as a boy he was lost in fantasies of glory.

When the Emperor Frederick died in 1888 (of cancer) - his son had the palace surrounded by troops and searched for evidence of a conspiracy by Jews (and.....).

And Wilhelm's mother?

Obviously an English spy - sent to spy on him (starting by giving birth to him) to prevent Germany achieving its divine destiny.

Somehow lecturing someone like Wilhelm (charming as he could be at times - especially to his grandmother Queen Victoria) on economics was never going to work.

It will not work with the Islamic Republic of Iran or the "Party of God" in Lebanon either.

Or the powers that back them - such as Mr Putin in Russia.

tl;dr

O'Reilly has now been forced out and as we all remember, Megyn Kelly left. Are these cracks in the Fox News foundation or just two minor setbacks?

They're performers who lost their jobs. Won't be the first time in the entertainment industry.

Does anybody even watch cable news any more? A recent Atlantic article revealed "the median age of Americans watching CNN, MSNBC, and Fox News is over 60." Somewhere between six and thirteen percent of North Americans get their entertainment only from the internet and that number is growing. The estimates are not exact because polling methods are often quite different. But I work with a fair number of people who claim they don't watch TV but they watch a lot of streaming media which, to them, isn't really television.

Kelly simply got a better offer from NBC up front, and Fox didn't want to fight over it. From what I have read Kelly had no problems with Fox.

It should be very clear now that regardless of paper and TV being split between the two Murdoch sons the WSJ still remains the Murdoch's official piece.

Just a week ago the WSJ laid out the biggest reason O'reilly needed to be fired. The Murdoch's want to take over the controlling share of Sky Media and the Brit's Oxfcam has wide range over denying mergers. O'reilly was fired so no problems could be made over sexual harassment claims with the Brits.

Yes the money settlements would cost Fox in the long run over O'Reilly outweigh any income they'd make on him. But the real reason here is the Murdoch's wanting another media outlet.

I ceased to exist, aha. Been very busy this school year...

It's pretty amazing that more than a quarter of all nations in the region (74 of 274) have an economy score of 100 - the maximum value.
