: : What a shameless monster.

: Your words, from post 8550: 'I was in the process of evaluating various employee [health care] programs available to me as a small business but since you made me feel like a feudal lord for considering their well being maybe I'll just give that up for a new moat.'

: And, most recently, from post 8816: 'Better for you to get very hungry and find out what a blessing that menial job really is.'

: Who you calling a monster?

: Why wouldn't the working class want to be free of capitalists like you?

It's really not a question of being free from capitalists but rather a visceral envy on the part of Liberals/Socialists/Communists/Greens towards people more able then they themselves are. There are some people who have the capacity to lead, create, take risks and if they fail, try again. Since not every person has this capacity not all persons will be rewarded to the same degree.
Liberals/Socialists/Communists/Greens know deep down that they will always be second fiddle to the entrepreuner.

McSpotlight: Isn't that a bit of a generalization?
