F: The more likely you are to live in a dictatorship.

Qx: Tell that to Milton Freidman and his take on Chile. That should get you going.

F: Qx, your exactly the sort of chap who would willingly order city dwellers out to the hinterlands to make your economics work, thereby disproving we 'pre-scientifics'.

Qx: Frenchy, you're exactly the sort of chap who jumps to such conclusions. If you like to be called "pre-scientific" then go ahead and do so. It makes for better accuracy and everybody else fully appreciates that.

F: By the way, Qx, what's your blue-collar background?

Qx: Printer, bike messenger, prospector, trapper, and other sundry things in order to keep food on the table. Of course to use this as leverage in a debating room such as this is a crutch which you've amply demonstrated by your referring to your father's life. At least my resume isn't the conventional tripe listing off previous management positions.
