  •  and the same won't happen now? (0+ / 0-)

    If we eliminate capitalism (remember capitalism DID NOT EXIST back when all those things were invented) people won't invent better ways to eat? They'll all just sit down and starve from sheer laziness?

    That is the most idiotic thing I have ever heard.  Ever.

    In the end, reality always wins.

      I just pointed out that each of those inventions led to real economic advantage- They didn't happen out of love for the creative process.

      •  they happened because people needed them (0+ / 0-)

        The idea that people won't make new things unless they make profit from it, is silly. People make things because they need them.

        The libertarian loonies who try to project a "free market economy" onto absolutely everything, are laughable.

        In the end, reality always wins.
