: We don't read your posts. We're evil capitalists; when confronted with the holy scripture of Marx, we burst into 'flames' (hmm ... interesting metaphor here ...) The fact that our questions and comments relate to your texts are only incidental coincidences - like, for example, the significantly higher level of prosperity in capitalist as opposed to socialist and communist nations. Thus, as has been widely demonstrated, we can safely be ignored and ridiculed by our enlightened betters.

: Pardon me, but I have to warn the heathens that Lark is coming. I'm sure that'll be enough to scatter those nasty counterrevolutionaries.

: "Doc" Cruel

: P.S. Really, Lark. I thought you were better than this ...

Better than what?!!

I have tried seriously to debate and reason with an interest in the opinions of those debating with me but the fact is that with some people all I get is mix prejudice and dogma that is bound to make anyone of opposing opinion furious.

I've said before that I cant stand misrepresentation regardless of the author or vitim, if someone made bland assertions that the capitalism that existed in Nazi Germany, where the rich collaborated willingly with the state, was the exact same as the tolerant and efficient utopia of Gee I'd have to disagree, it doesnt mean I find Gees view correct just that I believe he's sincere.

From your own experience of dealing with what we on the left refer to as tankies and you on the right probably think are common or garden socialists, what with prejudice and all, that debating with some people is like a black man trying to debate at a KKK rally.

Now is this fact or is it fact?

I resent the casting me as marxist ideology and quasi-religious characterisation of my view but if you really wish to demonstrate prejudice go right ahead.
