: : Do you mean to imply that your "capitalist class" DOES own the means of production of providing that food? Funny. I'm aware of plenty of "capitalists" who don't own and run their own farm!

: Funny. I'm aware of plenty who do (and plenty who retail their goods, as well).

LOL! Is this supposed to be a rebuttal?? My point that there are capitalists who are not farmers refutes your assertion that "the capitalist class owns the means of production [of providing food]." The fact that there ARE farmers who are also capitalists (by your definition) has nothing to do with it.

: Or are you talking about the statistically insignificant amount of independent, precapitalist farmers remaining in America?

I'm not talking about farmers at all. I'm talking about capitalists who are not farmers.
