: : SDF: Zebras don't have "interests," they are too stupid, and comparative advantage is YOUR ideology, like duh... people don't "naturally" compete, they compete because it's been made into a great game by capitalist society

: Yes comrade and although we may have misunderstood eachother in previous posts I can see from these threads that we the Scientific Socialists can create a new paradigm of our mass consciousness.

SDF: Three important teachings for children:

1) No vanguards -- everyone works together, as equals.

2) Distrust vanguardists -- they're just reproducing the old authoritarianism. (After all, that's all Lenin or Mao ever did.)

3) Creating a new society is not a "science" in the sense that physics or chemistry is a science -- it's a matter of opening a dialogue with others about the potential versatility of human social existence, about what Paulo Freire called "utopian dreaming."
