Oh, dear. I have been defeated by your debating skills. You, are a word warrior of the internets.

Right before you die, instead of thinking about family and friends, you can smile and think, "I won an internet argument somewhere against someone because they thought supporting dictators was wrong. I showed them!"

On your point number one. US business is organized, legalized corruption. The fairy tale is that business, like restaurants and real estate, deserve high profits because they took risks. Hey, if something happens, like a pandemic, they could lose it all!

Something happens, like a pandemic, and we see how business is pushing government to act in a way that punishes regular people, but which saves the formerly courageous investors.

If you have enough money, you have enough power to use the government to reduce risk. And we would call it corruption if this editorial was written in Argentina to pressure their government to save real estate businesses

The editorial board of the Post has been cringy for a long time. One of my favorite cringe editorial was in the 2000s, when they praised Pinochet. It was their "right-wing dictatorships are great!" editorial that they bring out now and then. It was so disgusting.

So yeah, the Post has decades of making horrible editorials
