: No, I think MOST people are intelligent to know the difference between a vanguard party and a terrorist group.

Arguments from intimidation wont work here

: Of course, with propagandists like you continually screaming that they're the same, efforts will need to be redoubled. . .

or here

: : You need those Rockefellers, Fords, Gorts and Gates to organise production for you to take it.

: Stop with the Ayn Rand nonsense, please.

And certainly not here.

: Most of the 'prodigious' science and technology that capitalists monopolize has been either invented under CONTRACT to them by scientific wage-workers or invented under government-subsidized research programs that the TAX-PAYERS provide.

Re read that list (well, miss out Gort if you like) and review their personal histories and the specific advancements innovated and developed BY THEM in productivity, organisation and quality then try to dismiss them all as lottery ticket winners who just 'exploit' everyone else by virtue of their 'good fortune'
