For the record, I think the disorganized resistance's response to the post that began this thread was over the top and out of place, i.e. not an appropriate response to the original post. The rant that followed, however, with its personal attacks referencing shitty this and shitty that was even more inappropriate. Makes me wonder if I will be the next to be shouted down if I step the wrong way. One thing that makes capitalism bring out the worst in humanity is the notion that unbridled competition leads to human progress. All of us here know that's a load of crap. Why, then, would we allow our most deeply held convictions to bring out in us the same sense of competition, which is what I suspect this tiff is all about?
