: Yes, we have a model society. Yes, our economy is better than it has ever been, and improving. But take heed - socialism takes advantage of prosperity, and flourishes in an environment of apathy. It is the AIDS of capitalism. Therefore, be on your guard.

Thanks for clarifying my point there man, the fact that it flourishes in prosperity tells you what? The lowest rank in society doesnt want to lose their prosperity once the next bust occurs and they want to make that plain to the people who are sitting pretty no matter what happens to the economy.

: To Bakunin, "oppression" included marriage - he had the disconcerting habit of seducing the wifes of his associates. Sort of a hobby of his.


: : Now that is Socialism in a nutshell and it sounds pretty timeless to me.

: I believe you. And, since I have translated the above from the Orwellian Newspeak that it has been written in, I shall be sure to take the appropriate precautions.


: Thanks for the warning, brother.

What again?

: : We have a saying here, Our day will come.

: (You mean like, 'cabaret' style, "Tommorrow Belongs to Me"?)

No like your yesterdays papers with yesterdays news.
