    • Abstract:
      The purposes of the present article are to note the paucity of tests in the politological literature and to advance the thesis that some social movements have unwittingly supported certain political philosophies, whereas others have undermined them. For example, recent trends in longevity statistics favor free and universal health care policies while undermining the private health care ones. Likewise, economic statistics can be used to test the view that free trade favors its practitioners. [ABSTRACT FROM AUTHOR]
