Dirius, your form of debate fallacy is called a red herring. It's a form of distraction. ("Hey! Look over there!")

The last I checked, this was a thread about how to handle discussions about Black Lives Matter, not whatever digression you feel like bringing up about the economy of New Zealand or some such.

I pay far more income tax than I care to mention. In Canada, however, we normally feel we get value in exchange, like a country that runs reasonably well, public education for all, and a respectable health care system.

But by all means, cite any of those articles on Argentina's economy that are written in English. I would read some of them.
