: At last I'm getting through.

: The Aristocracy is my problem, let us once and for all dispense with discussing the state we all see it as shite and it should be superseded, now if you people are genuinely for liberty and your attack on the state is not merely a rebellion against organised labour (who are copying the tactics the incepent bourgousie or wealth aristocracy used against the fuedal lords) then you will attack this aristocracy also.

: Otherwise Fuedalism will spring forth once more and the only reply people will have is a couple more hundred years of imperialism, nazism and statism.

An aristocracy is a class of society that is automatically entitled to unlimited wealth without having to lift a finger. A billionaire has obviously had to work, and he doesn't have control over everyone or everything in a certain domain. A worker under capitalism has the opportunity to become rich, he/she does not have that option under feudalism. Capitalism to me connotes freedom, everyone can do what they want, make their own decisions and go to prosperity or poverty based on those decisions. Under feudalism, it is impossible to leave your position, unlike capitalism.
