Have you ever talked to a really hard-core salesman? Someone obviously trying to push a really bad deal on you? Remember that point that he finally gives up - the mark is just too wary, the effort not worth the payoff... There's a point where you can see the veins pop up on his neck.

Just remember - there isn't anything you have that can't be taken from you. The more productive you are, the bigger the payoff for the thief, and the greater his frustration when you elude his grasp. Just don't be so turned off by left-wing rhetoric that you forget that workers can be swindled too. Remember that, for all the evil that Bolshevism represented, it would never have had a chance if the dim-witted aristocrats of Russia hadn't kept the mass of the people in peasant servitude, or thrown their livews away in silly, stupid wars. The same sort of incompetance (collectivist farms and Afghanistan, respectively) has led to the present sorry state of affairs for the Russian Communist Party. Intelligence check here, folks.

We've got to come up with solutions for our social problems. Otherwise, it's some self-appointed revolutionary vanguard to the rescue, and that won't be too pretty. No, not at all.
