: You're not the only one here who feels passionately about social justice, you know.

Justice? Justice for whom? Which class?

:When you find common ground with someone, you ought to work to achieve it.

Common ground with people who advocate "some inequality"? You can count this wage-slave out. I'm tired of liberals and their bourgeois political fads.

:I, for example, am very sympathetic to much of what you advocate, but instead of working with me, you've chosen to berate me for not sharing absolutely ALL of your convictions. Do you think that's the way to get me to see things your way? Sorry, but that's the way to drive people away, people who are your natural allies, never mind your opponents. Like I said earlier, you better learn who your friends are before you're left playing all alone.

Do me a favor: instead of lecturing Barry, why don't you debate him?
