'The mortgage that the peasant has on heavenly blessings guarantees the mortgage that the bourgeois has on peasant lands.'---Marx.

: [I] would look for something more like 80% state owned, 20% private or 90% state owned, 10% private. I'm CERTAINLY not a Marxist, precisely because of the atheistic implications.

Does belief in God negate class interests? God is certainly no elected official! Therefore, belief in God (supreme authority) is incompatible with democracy.

And this business about 'just a little private ownership.' Who gets the tiny slice? For that matter, who is the 'state'? Please define your terms in real---not heavenly---language!
