Subject: Re: What’s gone wrong with Scheme Macros? Why all the debate?

That is an interesting view. I would rather say that people who think | there is a better way to make a living then wonder how to get a job serving | burgers get into LAW and POLITICS and DIPLOMACY ... are people who are not | interested in working at all. What was the significance of the "then" that replaced my "than"? Presuming it has meaning, I am unable to understand what you mean fully. I also wonder what kind of misguided notions "work" that make up the substance of your opinion. May I offer a counter-view that muscle-time is irrelevant and the only measure of the amount of work involved is the brain-time needed. | As for politics not being religion ... I was "fortunate" enough to have been | born in a communist run country, and know very well that communism (probably | most of the other "politics" as well) is very much a religion at its best -- | cause if you speak up; they will burn you! It is religion that has elements of politics, not the other way around. -- Erik Naggum, Oslo, Norway Act from reason, and failure makes you rethink and study harder.
