: This is a very curious statement to say against Barry. After all, does Stu know Barry? Does Stu even have the right to condemn Barry by is assumption that Barry lacks the intitiative to work for himself? How does Stu know this? He doesn't on all three counts.
$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$And of course this is a very curious statement for Qx to make considering that I've challenged these folks to spill the beans and tell us all what their backgrounds are. They refuse, saying instead that that has no relevance to the discussion at hand. As Qx knows as much of Stu as Stu does of Barry, yet that doesn't prevent Qx from assuming many things about Stu the Capitalist and making moral judgements, such as implying that he, Qx, understands humanist ideals and that Stu doesn't. Or that Stu supports oppression and exploitation. I don't recall reading that in any of Stu's posts. No matter. Qx et al. just happen to be superior human beings and are thus able to pass judgement on others, while at the same time proclaiming how unfair it is that others do the same thing.
