: Don't you see, Nikhil---once you advocate 'only' 10% -20% private control of the means of production, guys like Gee who advocate 100% private control of the means of production come a-courtin'...

I must have forgotten the bunch of flowers then.

: And guys like you end up working for Phillip Morris 'cause they crush small labs with their copious supply of monopoly capital...

So there is your false dichotomy. If you accept any sort of individualism, any sort of seperateness from the totality of society you are doomed to inevitably and incontravertably work for Philip Morris?

Ofcourse not, and NJ knows it - and that is why people have *not* signed over their entire lives to BS's totality - including those who would disagree with me on a great many things - like NJ and SDF.

Think it over - is it either/or? Can we have our cake and eat it to? Is it all out free markets or absolute totality?

hmmm..... interesting.
