One thought on “London Dada Work No. 647; When all the SFX are done

  1. Th1t&#82a7;s a bit better. Now, while I do not disagree with what you said, I have a counter argument, but I am just too effing tired to do fact checking right now, so I’m not even going to. I’ll just say that economic progress comes in many forms, and in many cultures. Culturally homogeneous peoples such as those in small countries like Norway, Sweden, and Finland have a much easier time with Socialism than a mixed culture, such as that of the United States.
