-_-; Why bother?

If we want to talk to Don, we have to set some sort of objective agreement in WHAT KIND OF TERMS WE WILL USE TO CERTAIN FORMS OF SOCIO-ECONOMICAL SYSTEM. In previous - yet clearly, futile - discussions, I seemed to notice the only "true" capitalism representing Don is a strict Laissez-faire system. Since, Don just LOVES calling all other forms of capitalism as "fascism".

I dare say bringing up this subject - explaining WHAT is fascism, WHAT is socialism, WHAT is capitalism to Don - is gonna bring some nasty results.

Don has deconstructed and destroyed the entire base of analysis consisting this system - fascism. We have to start all over and reconstruct it before we even get a good chance to REALLY talk about something.

Oh joy. History class all over again!
