Craig, I read many of your posts, none was so pessimistic so far.
Ah, maybe I was being more sarcastic than the internet allows. I was
intending to mock those ideas by quoting Scrooge, as I think that
there is nothing further from the truth than the idea that character
is completely independent from their circumstance - that people with
no shoes can pull themselves up by their bootstraps or who have been
born into a system of oppression can free themselves by belief in the
free market or some such thing.
What exactly is a system of oppression? Could you describe an
actual situation in Nature that is "oppression-free"?
