SOCIALISM, MARXISM, FEMINISM, ANTI-SEMITISM, WAR, RACISM & INFANTICIDE = RADICALS & WACKOS DEMOCRAT PARTY ...

Recommended Posts

Industrial progress, mechanical improvement, all of the great wonders of the modern era have meant little to the wealthy. The rich in ancient Greece would have benefited hardly at all from modern plumbing — running servants replaced running water. Television and radio — the patricians of Rome could enjoy the leading musicians and actors in their home, could have the leading artists as domestic retainers. Ready-to-wear clothing, supermarkets — all these and many other modern developments would have added little to their life. They would have welcomed the improvements in transportation and in medicine, but for the rest, the great achievements of western capitalism have rebounded primarily to the benefit of the ordinary person. These achievements have made available to the masses conveniences and amenities that were previously the exclusive prerogative of the rich and powerful.

Have you accepted a dentist as your lord and savior. Give it a thought. :)
