Competition od ideas

I like this forum, its a competion of ideas, a market place of thought (hehe)

Free speech is the vital ingredient in a worthwhile society, yet i remember some 'reds' i used to know wanting to ban works by people like von mises, rand, friedman and others - so as not to 'poison' the purity of socialist teachings.

If free speech stays in a hypothetical socialist society isnt there a risk of people re-discovering the 'great works' of pro capitalists and starting a movement much like yours, until the collective class gain individual consciousness and turn over the socialist ways?

as an aside, this forum is an interesting read but from myt first visit to this one the links have gone all over the place! its getting difficult to follow the talk!
