: Barry, you've done it again. When people question your philosophy, why can't you answer them politely, without scorn or sarcasm? As Lark pointed out, a good many workers here in the United States are conservative Republicans. Unlike David and myself, they will be hostile to you from the start. Do you intend to win them over by insulting them? If so, as I've said before, you'll never achieve your goals.

MDG, you've done it again.

Instead of discussing a topic as profound as socialist incentive, you are playing another personality contest---this time with David (who is confirmed Ayn Rand supporter).

As far as goals go, weeding out the opportunists is how one goes about CREATING a revolutionary party.
