: Excellent thoughts. I feel no attraction to the Socialist/Communist/Green program.

Fine at least you have the choice to demonstrate etc. against it I suspect that if it was in your power you would make opposition to your personal dogma result in punishment.

:Me and millions of others,

Curious, is this a collectivist twist? Or perhaps that Majoritarianism that Libertarians bitch about so often, cheers Frenchy I really appreciate when semi-morons like you stumble into the debates and expose the true hypocrisy of the Capitalist "libertarian" position.

:for the reason's that you list. I don't think that man's make-up, his nature, is built for that.

What am I the exception to the rule then? I refuse to believe that I'm any different form the next average person, bar political reflection, so your law of "human nature" isn't boren out here.

What is this semi-religious bullshit that "human nature" keeps getting invoked on Capitalisms behalf?! Why do you have the, assume you have the, monopoly on "human nature"?! This is one dimensional thinking in over drive!!

: Except for small inconsequential communities such as the Amish and Mennonites and left over Hippy communes who are, forgive me, parasites.

Slagging alternative lifestyles, yes, all very libertarian and tolerant, slandering true religious inclination all very "Christian" and Conservative too, just explain to me how parasitical they are? Perhaps anyone who poses a threat to your status quo is a parasitical element.
