I occasionally look at this board just to see what is being discussed, more than anything else, and I don't get it.

In the United States, we have 50 states and several territories, all with slightly varying approaches to problems. It seems to me that if we want to know what works, we could just compare the various states on scales that indicate how well their citizens live--life expectancy, general health, percent of home ownership, access to information, survival at birth, and so on.

You could probably conclude that the states on top have the right approach, and those on the bottom have the wrong one, since this experiment has been proceeding for quite some time now.

Seems like that could settle some of the endless argument.
