Do you -- all of you -- understand that arguing the cost of specific elements of a utopian set of goals makes as much sense as arguing about the cost of implementing the Futurist Manifesto?

Yes, the GND in its entirety is unrealistic. So was the Civil Rights movement in 1954. It's been 60 years and that's still going on. I don't know how much it cost, but I think the price was worth the benefits. BTW, the same people who are screaming about the GND are the people who screamed about civil rights. They were wrong then and you are wrong now.

I admit that conservatives won out against civil rights a lot of the time. You're probably very proud of that. But my guess is that we've learned some lessons from that and we'll make it much harder for you this time.
