    Ah, I see. Because I criticized Liberals and other socialist types, I must therefore be conservative. How exactly does that work as anything other then demonstrating an inability to consider anything more complex than a binary data set?

    Good thing then that I was addressing primarily towards leftist who are incapable of comprehending complex, adult or non-self-centered rhetoric.

So in essence, every time you talk about how capitalism works, you're plagiarizing Marx.
    Three terms fall well short of pervasive authorship. Furthermore, I seriously doubt Marx coined the term or concept of the financial dividend, and "surplus value" is not a capitalist term (think: profit). As for "division of labor", maybe so, although "specialization" must be about as commonly these days.

    How did I know the plagiarism apologists would come out of the woodwork.

    What? What does that even mean? I can't consider that there's anything more complex than a, what, 'binary data set'? What the hell is a binary data set in this discussion?

    Who said it was three terms? Their development and the conceptual understanding of them can be attributed to Marx - everyone who came after him basically took a page from Das Kapital and put their own spin on his magnus opus. Plagiarism at work.

    Those kind of things?
    Please show me liberals plagiarizing/quoting Hitler and using his views on the "intolerance for white heterosexual Christian males". Thanks.

    2nd time I ask. Show us evidence. No more politicking. Just post the evidence.

    You only gave three terms, and in order to convince anyone you might have a case you need to provide, oh, two or three dozen more.

    I think it is probably safe to say that few if any modern economists would agree with you, except maybe for the ones in Cuba, North Korea, and a few (now very few) academic departments elsewhere.

    And a second time I won't answer because what you ask is not what I said.
