Barry the question is Capitalism or Freedom, now in my understanding socialism serves freedom but the way your making it sound Socialism is like some kind of terrifying tyranny of the planners and trot zealots.

This isnt jsut terrible because normal folk will be left saying, 'I'm maybe better with things as they are' but because if I had to, and I would, engage in an armed struggle against a Strollerist regime I'd probably be fighting alongside the likes of Dr. Cruel etc. (Not frenchy, not facists of any discritption)

Now you can continue your accusing everyone of being traitors who doesnt agree with your narrow sectarian definition of socialism and you can continue using words like Utopia to give your posts the apperance of realism and make everyone else look bad but the bottom line is that you'd better debating the actual points.

If someone says that they think job rotation is impractical in some fields or just flat disagrees with it because they consider it a threat to freedom, it'd be better to debate and reason than say 'oh! Liberal/Utopian/Traitor'.

I'm surprised you've not retreated into some sparticous small group and ceased having contact with the outside, disagreeable, world.
