: SDF: Gosh what a stereotype! My position hasn't changed. Get it any way you can. Buy it, claim it, do it.

SDF: Let me clarify. Socialism has to be taught, through the modeling of socialist behaviors. It is doubtful that there is (in real life) any natural tendency for capitalism to produce socialists (in fact the evidence seems to point the other way), and at any rate such a natural tendency would have to be shown empirically, rather than just being asserted through an offhand quotation of the founding fathers of Marxism.

I could give a flying fuck about property laws.
