No, I believe, like any other entity in society, that the various institutions that make up the government are all acting in their OWN self interests, even when those interests clash with those of individuals, society at large, and even other arms of the government.

Marx, Engels, and John Maynard Keynes were buffoons who have caused untold damage to the world.

Ayn Rand was a novelist and philosopher. I am not very familiar with Leroux.

The rest were actual economists who made real contributions to our understanding of economic theory. Your grouping of them seems arbitrary.

How did they cause untold damage to the world?

By perpetuating economic fallacies which various governments used as justification for their horrible policies. JM Keynes is probably the man with the singe most influence on the economic policies of today's world and his entire General Theory was debunked line-by-line by a man named Henry Hazlitt in his "Failure of the New Economics" decades ago. Keynesian economics is pure bunk.

Marx and Engels were both shredded by Ludwig von Mises over 75 years ago in his masterpiece, "Socialism: an Economic and Sociological Analysis". Marxism isn't even economics, it's a self-contradictory social theory that can only result in misery when implemented.

325 was my one rep max, but that was way back when I played high school football. I probably couldn't even throw up 250 now.

Top ten all time? Not a single one, and I own every seventh generation machine (PSP, DS, Wii, PC, PS3, 360).

Yes. Just like pretty much every wartime president before him. Especially Truman.

Before bed if I have work early in the morning, before going out otherwise.
