: It doesnt matter who receives the stolen booty, its still bad.

Taxation is as much theft as paying for private services is theft. No I'll revise that taxation is less theft than paying for private services because the government is accountable to the people the company is not.

: I agree with you that corporate welfare and other anti-market practices are benefitting an elite political class.

I havent counted many posts rallying against corporate welfare Gee but I do know that you are anti-socialist and anti-democratic so if you can make yourself clear on those why cant you make yourself clear on this?

Perhaps welfare to the rich is the lesser of two evils between it and welfare to the poor. That would be in line with conservative capitalist logic wouldnt it?

: Lark doesnt read all my posts, corporate welfare is the poison by which people associate 'business' with bad.

Truth and commerce are as incompatable as Jesus and Satan Gee, what you dont understand is that if you make the basis of your system competition and justification of the individuals right to employ absolutely whatever it takes to satisfy their own interests then you cant be surprised that corporatism or some varient of corporatism will evolve.
