: You seem to be thinking that any socialist society of the future will take on corporatist features as an inevitability.

Nice word play, will take on, via the gaping holes of an opportunity to do so, the characteristics of various oppresive regimes

: Looks like Mao and China repeated over and over again.

And do you dare ask yourself why all those revolutions end up that way? Is it really just a run of bad luck, wrong timing? Or is it because it can, and everytime its happening because enough people *dont want equality*? Seems awful? If 99% of russians wanted equality they would be close to it, if 99% of them wanted socialism they would be close to it. They didnt, it wasnt.

: If that's the best you can do then its probably best that you do some
real soul searching.

Perhaps it would serve you well to wonder why, whenever the opportunity presents, socialism is taken and usurped into tyranny? Why this majority does no occur?

: You can do that during coffee breaks and reading history from more than one ideological vein (Fibertarianism).

I read from many sources, although I admit to not repeating the titles in capitals in my posts often enough.

It would be better than the pompousness

I dont really understand how you thought that pompous - care to go through it with me? One can read 'tone' in words effectively.

: That's a position you can take from where you sit and if you start to see life in a new light instead of dodging

disagreeing, or is 'dodging' newspeak for subsersive opinion?

Anyway, lets go through points - weve had some successful exchanges before.
