: The real revolutionaries are those of us who use whatever talents we do have to make our lives better slowly, incrementally, steadily. Our successes eventually contribute to the common good. Not in spectacular ways as in a full blooded revolution, but in much smaller and anonymous ways, through social cooperation with our neighbors known and unknown. We, people in general, don't need oppressors to tell us how much money we can or can't make. We don't need tyrants cum saviors to tell us whom we may associate with or whom we shouldn't. All that is needed is a system of laws that strives for a semblance of equality and men willing to abide by those laws. The revolutions that were created in the name of 'the people' in the twentieth century have ended with the people in chains.

As you know, Frenchy, I'm a communist and I do not agree with (99% of) your views at all.

Nonetheless, I was pleased to see you post your opinions in a thoughtful, concise manner (without all the annoying @@@'s and tiring, unsnipped text). I'd like to encourage you in your new style.
