I pine away for the days when it was acceptable to dismiss festering lunacy as such and move along to productive things. Barry has hoped out loud for calamity. Why should it surprise anyone that he sweeps the death and destruction that follows his humanistic (anyone see the pardox?) philosophy under the beautifully mancrafted rug of Marxist theory. Indeed Marx ridiculed those who believed in God because they were the antithesis of his philosophy. They were in the way of society placing hope in mankind to save themselves.

If anyone wants to hear anecdotal accounts of the depravity of Marxism (or whatever distillation or dillution of it is being practiced), one can talk to missionary friends of mine who have lived in the Ukraine for the last 4 years. Granted, all the stories are second hand but it's pretty easy to trust people who give up everything for the sake of their beliefs to tell the truth. Marx is a filthy dirty word over there right about now.

If one must get rid of any belief in order to achieve his goals or if one must wait for the next societal upheaval, he is not coming close to the concern for humanity that he espouses. Ostensible concern for humanity is often only a mask which hides personal ambition.

I say it's OK to judge the motivations of those who want to witness the destruction of Capitalism. They almost always dismiss out of hand the general success it fosters and ignore the depravity of man as it manifests itself in their favorite hobby.
