I am engaging to express skepticism. I am laying out my arguments clearly and responding to yours. That is communication. I may not be agreeing with you, but I am certainly communicating.
The point is that there are material things that are part of who I am. A good bottle of scotch makes me happy. Advancing my career with hard work and creativity also makes me happy.
My modern day culture allows me to live a productive life that I find fulfilling.
You will raise issue of inequity and perhaps even suggest that my bottle of good scotch contributes to someone else's misery. This is an intellectually lazy argument to make. Complaining about injustice is a lot simpler than coming up with ways to make things better.
So my challenge, that I keep making, is this. Tell me an economic system that has ever worked better, or at least come up with a scheme that hasn't already been tried (and failed). You have provided no reason to assert that making me less happy will make someone else happier.
If you really want to make my life less enjoyable by taking away my good scotch, at assure me that it will actually make someone else's life better.
