So you would say stupidity would be helpful in picking out the right answer in a difficult test?

It's not my response to the comments between you and Tecumsehsbones. By response to that was to ignore it.

Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms

Section 6 - Mobility Rights

Every citizen of Canada has the right to enter, remain in, and leave, Canada.
Every citizen of Canada and every person who has the status of a permanent resident of Canada has the right:
to move to, and take up residence in, any province, and
to pursue the gaining of a livelihood in any province.
The rights specified in subsection (2) are subject to:
any laws or practices of general application in force in a province other than those that discriminate among persons primarily on the basis of province of present or previous residence; and
any laws providing for reasonable residency requirements as a qualification for the receipt of publicly provided social services.
Subsections (2) and (3) do not preclude any law, program or activity that has as its object the amelioration in a province of conditions of individuals in that province who are socially or economically disadvantaged if the rate of employment in that province is below the rate of employment in Canada.
Section 6 protects the right of Canadians to move from place to place, and section 6(1) ensures that all Canadian citizens are free to come and go as they please. Extradition laws place some limits on these rights. These laws state that persons in Canada who face criminal charges or punishment in another country may be ordered to return to that country.

Section 6(2) gives all Canadian citizens and permanent residents the right to move to, and live in, any province or territory. They may also look for work or set up a business there. Section 6(3) makes clear that provinces may decide to give social benefits, such as welfare, only to persons who have lived in the province for a certain period of time. They may also pass employment laws that require workers to have the necessary qualifications to practice their profession or trade.

In addition, section 6(4) allows a province that has an employment rate below the national average to create programs that favour its own residents.

You giving our citizens to many choices and freedom, they will be unhappy.

So what are you saying then?

Less choice is better because it's less stressful to choose from fewer options then from more options, And being stupid helps you pick out the best option when there are to many. ? This is what I've gathered from you so far.

Can you elaborate on this?

So you want a government to limit choices so that your very intelligent brain can decide between fewer choices,?

Yes, I responded directly to your comment, but you said I responded to the comments between you and Tecumsehsbones. It's not an unreasonable mistake to make. I'm clarifying.

Stop repeating the erroneous claim that capitalism fosters innovation, it doesn't. no matter what your bourgie textbook says or a liberal wikipedia article. that's market fundamentalist bull****. all the research that's led to innovations has been done in the public sector, period.

You misunderstand me. I assumed your question was extrapolating from what I wrote, so I'm asking how you made the extrapolation.

See, this is how our conversation has gone.

I say too many consumer choices leads to unhappiness.
You ask if I think intelligence improves one's ability to make these decisions
I said I thought it was the opposite.
(at this point the dialogue derails)
You ask if I would say that means stupidity makes it easier to take multiple choice tests.
I say no.
You ask if life is not a series of decisions.
I ask how you reached that conclusion.

In summary, what I said about consumer choice and happiness has nothing to do with multiple choice tests. It's probably related to making life choice though, but I don't see why we need to go there. We should probably get back to the point.

Well I enjoy my endless numbers of variation , and my freedom to pick out the product I prefer the most, and the freedom to change my mind, and try a diffrent one the next time I purchase a item. I really can't see myself being able to master every single profession and building everything I currently own by myself.

My computer has been built by the public sector? Are you kidding?

I enjoy having a endless selection of wine to chose from and taste with a unlimited variation of cheese. Anyone who can't see how wonderful this is, will never be happy in any situation or system.

what the hell... you're an imbecile. yes your computer, and in particular the internet was developed by the public sector. variations of cheese are going to exist regardless, as with any type of animal product. **** has nothing to do with capitalism.

That's right. I have 2000$ of disposable income this month, to spend on any product available throughout the world. Not bad for a simple carpenter 😉

Maybe I'll go on family vacation.

Waste of good paper. Corporations must accept paper money. It's the law.

Killing your marketplace is not a good business model for growth

The law can vanish overnight, the paper cash can be made plain paper in a few seconds. The west has sucked its captive market dry to the extent that that captive market cannot keep up with the national debt, it as to be rolled over somehow, war is the usual method. So we will have war, and everything will be fixed.

Unbridled capitalism is the 'dung of the devil', says Pope Francis

Pope Francis has urged the downtrodden to change the world economic order, denouncing a “new colonialism” by agencies that impose austerity programs and calling for the poor to have the “sacred rights” of labor, lodging and land.
In one of the longest, most passionate and sweeping speeches of his pontificate, the Argentine-born pope used his visit to Bolivia to ask forgiveness for the sins committed by the Roman Catholic church in its treatment of native Americans during what he called the “so-called conquest of America”.
