the Competitive Oarsmen.

.
To the • Ayn Rand lackeys of this world:

For you
the “veil of ignorance”
 is exactly that;
that explains
the need for fairness
in deciding upon a socio-economic system…
 but the sea in which all competitors must struggle
–but not drown!

Telling
other countries / financial entities
that you want them
to become more competitive
 is a sick joke.

It’s as if one is taking part on a speed race in the deep blue sea.
Some have speed-boats, others have yachts, most have canoes.
The first 10 of each race decide upon the rules of the next race.
T
hey can encourage the oarsmen to be competitive all day long.

But you need
(some of)
them alive. 
Without moochers and looters,
 your star won’t shine. 


“…Big wheel keep on turnin' 
 Proud Mary keep on burnin' 
 Rollin', rollin', rollin' on the river…”

Right words, don;t care much about the tune... αλλά το ίδιο θα μπορούσα να πω τζιαι για τούτο:
