No, I don't know anything about Leon Trotsky.

And I've never read 'Das Kapital'. Big deal.
OK, there ya go.

Here's what I do know; no matter how you slice it, dice it, or shread it, the socialist/communist/liberal/green ideals that many of you propose are simply wrong-headed. The only way they work is when they are forced on people.

Here's my solution, one I've proposed many times; When you see a homeless guy, or someone that is makeing lousy wages and can't support himself according to your standards, take him in, give him your food, share your soap, allow him equal use of your gas range.
Do you guys care about the man, or do you really care about power?

PS. Was Solzhenitsyn another fraud like David Horowitz? A rabble-rouser who just wanted to get into print?
