: Commrade Red (how appropriate) I see your socialist drivel hasnt changed a bit.

Its Deathy, Red's just an Adjective.

: I just wanted to make one correction, although many are needed, that free markets do not fail, people do.

No, actually, free Markets are inherently crisis bound, and cannot match the actual needs of people, only the effective demand, if people are poor, their needs cannot be met, therefore teh market fails to provide for them.

:Usually those who have failed blame the system instead of themselves. It easier to blame a faceless system for ones personal lack of success.

Yes, I'm sure three month old babies must sit around saying 'its that damned system means I don't get proper treatment'. And I'm sure it must be the fault of 20 million people in euorpe that they are unemployed, and the fault of millions agross the US that their wages have fallen over the last 20 years....
