: : Well, stick around, your in great company; Nickel Jack, MaDoG, Samuel Duh Fassbinder and other real luminaries who feel they can run everybody's life.

: Erm, last I checked SDF was about stopping others from running folks' lives...

Ha! Are we talking about the same SDF? Perhaps he has an evil twin living in a parallel universe and is a Conservative.

: : PS. Won't you stick around long enough for me to put up another installment of Ludwig Von Mises' book, "The Anti-Capitalistic Mentality"? The old boy really does understand the egomanical burden you live under...envy, that is, just old fashioned run of the mill envy.

: Yes, indeed, Marx positted it in this way: if a man lived next door to another whose house was bigger, then no matter how his own house grew, he would only know that his neighbour's was bigger than his - all based on a reading of hegel's master-slave dialectic and the struggle for recognition, but if you want to call it envy, go ahead.

Yes, envy it is.

: Indeed, why should we die young because we are poor, why should we have less say in government, why should we have worse clothes, lousy food, eternal stress over bills - when them as we work for, whom we make money for, live in the lap of luxury.

Actually, they are the ones making money for you.
If what you say is accurate, why wouldn't you simply make money for yourself rather than make money for them?
