:: But war (imperialism) and 'calamity' (overproductive crisis) are concomitants of what you advocate: CAPITALISM.

Sure they are; if war = imperialism and calamity = overproductive crisis. While we're at it. let's also narrow the definition of unfair to mean income disparity and exploitation to mean the capital/labor relationship.

Of course, if we do that we need new words for Soviet expansion and the chaos that followed their demise.

:: As long as your treasured system of property relations are as 'fair' and as stable as you believe them to be, you will never be troubled by the likes of me.

You have a point. You have no hope of winning an election in your lifetime but it saddens and angers me to think you'll invest your whole life into this kind of futility. What a waste of a capable brain.

:: Then again, it might really be the 'end of history'---this around time, eh?

I guess one can always hope, eh Barry?
