I wasnt going to post today, but you deserve this (i did post to you once before) and I hope McSpotlight will allow me this exchange - coz I think its warranted and relavent, and I speak as one who once might have joined mr fassbinders privaliged intellectual college socialist clubs. I went back to read how this mighty man of intellect has 'defeated' Gee, Lark, Red Deathy and other peoples points in this and other topics. Youve 'blown away' and 'shown' nothing except to your particular satisfaction, Ive never seen a poster so overestimate his own credibility as you. Your pretense at being an authority on capitalism, socialism, world politics and ecology, your manipulative rewriting of others points is an ad hominein approach to responding and gives a very different impression to the one you may imagine.

Its this attitude that turns people away from socialism.

If anyone here gets my respect for still being socialist its Red Deathy - he can counter Gee's and othe capitalist types with thought out arguments, philosophy and a distinct lack of condescension.


(Brian) Brothers! Brothers! We should be struggling together!

(Francis) We are!

(Brian) We mustn't fight each other! Surely we should be united against the common enemy!

(everyone else): The Judean People's Front?!

(sorry; gratuitous Life of Brian quote slightly relevant to the situation. Not meant as a personal comment at anyone.)
