Can you argue that majority makes right in the case of *any* situation at all? Bath times on sunday? Ownership of cuddly toys?

Hey, I know, Gee.

Let's just leave things the way they are NOW. Right? With 10% of the population (the capitalists) running EVERYONE'S life everyday on the workforce.

Is that YOUR idea of 'democracy'?

: Evidently you cannot answer the above, hence you merely followed with a whine about the current set up.

: That is just not good enough.

You are always interested in the 'rights' of the minority, Gee.

Which would be a laudable concern IF the minority you are so concerned about wasn't actually RUNNING THE WORLD ECONOMY as things stand now.

I'm interested in the MAJORITY who actually have a DISPROPORTIONATELY REDUCED say in how the economy is run.

The tears you shed for the capitalist minority are NOT NECESSARY.

And regarding your IDIOTIC inference that socialism would regulate bath times and personal (non-profit producing) items, must I say ANOTHER MILLION TIMES that socialism is the public ownership of only the means of production?

Remember 'means of production' from Capital, Gee?
