Subject: Re: LibCapitalism, Enemy of Rationality

   My apologies, I assumed the audience had a grasp
   for the obvious.  What do you imagine a 'non-involved'
   third party to entail?  In your definition (quoted from the
   current dictionary with all its warts), what is it you imagine
   is the opposite of the root 'private' in the phrase "production
   and distribution are privately ... ".

   Rather than donning robes and proclaiming your
   delusions for all to see ... why not ASK when you
   fail to understand?

  Well, the joke's on me, it seems.
  I thought (that's my story, and I'm stickin' to it) that I was
  communicating with a naive young person of the humym persuasion.  But
  it's now obvious that, all along, I've been suckered into responding
  the random output of an artificial stupidity program.
  Man, is my face red...

Wow!  Not only fallacy ... but projection.  Just damn.

Scared to admit your error ... or merely clinging
vehemently to delusion?


The fundamental error of socialism is
anthropological in nature. Socialism
considers the individual person simply
as an element, a molecule within the
social organism, so that the good of the
individual is completely subordinated to
the functioning of the socio-economic
mechanism. Socialism likewise maintains
that the good of the individual can be
realized without reference to his free
choice, to the unique and exclusive
responsibility which he exercises in
the face of good or evil. Man is reduced
to a series of social relationships, and
the concept of the person as the
autonomous subject of moral decisions
disappears.  - Pope John Paul II, Centesimus Annus
