Unclescam, We digress some with this exchange, but only in detail. Plague blankets were intentional germ warfare of the 17th--19th century in north america that I am aware of. I have that only by second hand report. But yes, Unck, there is ample documentation of intentionaly using ill people or their effects to purge other populations. I made the pont of the potato-famine years because by then there were also fairly good documentation that the 'excess populations' that the landed gentry wanted purged weren't the only people who died when such pogroms were conducted. >is this any different than supplying bare essentials to the couple that wish >to camp out in the wilderness cause they don't accept shelter ? if you beg >for it do you accept it.? we propose they counter. what's the counter ? do >we own it if we live in it ? do we form our own community, old like minded >anarchists that we are. looks like it was shot down before the poor got to >speak. do any wish to accept this largesse ? a home out of the polluted city >.are they doing benefits/healthcare ? what's the real deal ? have you >seen the plan ? Beleive me I am no fan of an intentional housing shortage. Which is what I am seeing here and reading of in Canada. I don't know if the Barre instalation would be a good deal or not, or if it had any chance of being supported with workable healthcare. As you aptly point out the Barre plan sounds shot down, or at least that is what looks likely from here. All else is sarcasm on my part.
