: *"You may not be interested in war, but war is interested in you" - Leon Trotsky, a.k.a. "Mr. War"

Doc Cruel, last heard from defending a 'Reaganesque foreign policy', claiming that slavery benefited 'some' blacks, and---if that wasn't enough---asserting that the Nazi Regime was actually popular with average German workers (why then the ubiquitous goon squads?) now has the audacity to paint Trotsky as a war lord.

Excuse me?

Who exactly started World War 1, Doc? Was it the Bolsheviks---or was it the capitalists?

If the capitalist Tsar regime had QUIT the war in the first place, the Bolsheviks---campaigning on th promise to end the war at any cost as quickly as possible---would never have had their shot at power.

Doc's sudden conversion to peacenik rhetoric is most disingenuous.

: Incidentally, the tourist and gambling industries depend on the $100 candy bar rule.

Now, anyone with half a brain will admit that the LTV does NOT fully apply in the case of monopoly.

: Being able to buy a $100 candy bar (and the increases in pay and worker output that these sorts of consumer demands generate) is the key to the unmitigated success of capitalism.

Is this supposed to infer that employees of monopolies SHARE in the spoils of monopoly?

Like, the waiters and hat check girls at EXCLUSIVE country clubs really rake in the dough...

Please---crawl back under your rock, Doc.
