: Agreed. I haven't read Marx and am not about to. I don't need to spout all the economic theories that fly back and forth on these pages in order to know injustic when I see it -- and I can guarantee that the downtrodden workers know it too, even if they've never finished high school and have no idea who Marx is; they know injustice when they experience it. The thing to do, IMHO, is agree on what's wrong and advocate the most humane and just ways to fix it, and I frankly don't give a damn what "ism" the repairs fall under. Now, having said all that, I'll lean back and prepare for the onslaught of text on a screen.

your 101% MDG, where were the socialists when the militias where formed out of people threatened by unemployment and capitalist cultural coup that meant the real reason for this threat was obscured took place?

That's right they where having meetings with themselves arguing about who was the most true to Marx, who was the most pure and who where 'liberals', 'bourgousie' etc.
