The Dumbest Question Ever Asked
Posted by Dave Blount at December 2, 2010 3:43 PM
Any informed person could agree that liberty had a great enemy in the socialist dictator Adolf Hitler and a great friend in the free market economist Milton Friedman. Yet a moron at Democratic Underground launched a thread by asking:
You have the chance to kill Hitler or Milton Friedman before they rise to prominence. Which one do you choose? Which one has done more damage to the world?
Hitler reaped death and destruction on all he encountered. He committed genocide on the Jewish people, gays and gypsies. He sought global domination under and [sic] iron fist. Many good people lost their lives fighting this tyrant.
Friedman preached free markets and no oversight for big business. This has lead [sic] to supreme corporate power, unfettered greed by those in power, financial collapse and global warming denial because it is bad for big business.
If you could delete one from history, which one do you choose and why?
Even the other DUmmies appeared to be appalled by this mind-bending moonbattery, resulting in the plug getting pulled on the thread.
