: Nike keeps the workers working, with an allocation of capital no greater that four bits a head.
Correction: 20¢ an hour (The Nation, 20 December 1999, p. 8).

You are talking about STALINISM, not socialism.
If what's going on in Russia right now 'really isn't' capitalism---as you say---why then isn't my argument valid that what went on in the U.S.S.R. (from 1922 through 1991) 'really wasn't' socialism?
Can't you admit that EACH form can have distortions and / or historical phases?
Or would that be too complex for a crude propagandist like you?
BTW, is all your hot air about Stalinism suppose to EXEMPT Nike's appalling corporate behavior?
