: : If all you Socialist/Communists hate competition so much why are you all competing with me and Gort et al. to get us to see the errors of our ways?

: Because we think you're wrong. We are not oppressing you, or going against our principles when we disagree with you, in fact we are in fundamental agreement with our principles in doing so, debate is the stuff society is made of. You're free to say what you will, we're free to disagree with you.

*Concur, in the main. I see ourselves as Copernicus and Bruno going against the reactionary tide of their day, in 'competition' with those whose personal lives were based upon a false doctrine which placed themselves at the center of the universe. And so the dialectic goes... Earth centered universe => heliocentric solar system => multidimensional space/time. Slavery/serfdom/slavery => wage labor => social ownership of all productive property... and so it goes. Society conditioning the individual; individuals working collectively to change society.
