: According to capitalist wisdom, there is only one way to measure what a thing is worth: money.

Based upon that deliberately narrowed premise the followign would be true. It isnt however.

: With that in mind, I ask this question: How much money are the capitalist participants of this debating room making from the thoughts which they express here?

Irrelavent, I enjoy it. Its a strange view that various socialists seem to have, that if one shows any kind of support for a free market then 100% of that persons effort must be put into creating wealth (creating, thats what *making* money means) and any other activity shows some kind of deep flaw or inconsistency in the person, as if it represents 'catching' one out! Nonsense.

They key, so willingly forogotten, is that I can choose to post here for my own enjoyment because that is of worth to me, that If I could sell the thoughts then I could choose to pursue it or not.
