: 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.

SDF: I'm sure the lumping together of people with completely different beliefs ("Liberals/Socialists/Communists/Greens") like some modern version of Archie Bunker, appeals to people like Frenchy/Nazis/Fascists/Assholes. In "Liberals," of course, you'd have to put billionaires like George Soros and Ted Turner, I'm sure they're envious of "people more able then (sic) they themselves are," they're doubtless at least envious of Frenchy's ability to misspell "than".

: There are some people who have the capacity to lead, create, take risks and if they fail, try again.

SDF: Frenchy means, like the teenage girls who work for Nike...real entrepreneurs, every one of 'em.

: Since not every person has this capacity not all persons will be rewarded to the same degree.

SDF: Frenchy has this fantasy that, since we want something other than capitalist competition, that we're not ourselves capitalist competitors.

: 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?

SDF: Yes, but then you see that Frenchy claims to know all of our life histories.
