: : : Perhaps those who state UNEQUIVOCALLY that 100% of the means of production should be PUBLIC and that equality (through job rotation) should be a salient feature of the socialist state would be more trustworthy than those who state---with a million and one recondite qualifications---that SOME means of production should be private and SOME inequality is 'OK.'

: : SDF: Sure, I'll do those things. Can I have the job now?

: The job is open to anyone.

: May the best program win (the confidence of the working class).

SDF: The working class has first-hand capitalist knowledge of what it's like to be taken for a sucker. Why should it trust "those who state UNEQUIVOCALLY..." anything? Read my lips, no new taxes anyone?

BTW, I noticed RD gave his full trust to the central committee of the pigs here. Have fun with the book club.
