    Me too. It would pretty much eliminate personal attacks and would remind people that most of what we talk about at DP is opinion and personal belief-system based. The best debaters aren't the ones who hold the "best" positions... whatever that means; there are no "best" positions. They are the ones who can present their positions in the best way.

    No doubt.

    That kind of ignorance is not likely to endear the 1% to progressives, believe me. Besides, we only want to take their things, not kill them all, nor was every jew in germany in the 1%. The obscene wealth and excess of the 1% in america today is something they *all* have in common.

    Who the hell are you to either 'take' anything that isn't yours, or to determine what is "obscene" and what isn't?

    I guess he shouldn't be complaining then?

    But don't worry, it should be real easy for 3.5 billion people to overpower 87 assholes and shove them into concentration camps if this guy is so prophetic.
