: With that in mind, I ended up here in this chat board, seeking an alternative system. The obvious contender was socialism. I asked a lot of questions, mostly of Barry Stoller, and the answers I received have persuaded me that socialism, at least in its Marxist form, is not the solution. I was told that certain freedoms I enjoy would be curtailed. In fact, I was told that under socialism I would be "allowed" to choose one specialized field to work in. I'm sorry, but I already live under a system which limits my freedoms. I'm not about to trade that in for a system which will limit my freedoms even more. I have no desire to ditch the devil I know for the devil I don't know, and I damn well won't give up those freedoms I have now. I love freedom.

Actually The only "freedom" Socialism would end, is the "freedom" to purchase another's Labour power...
