    Henrin, I thought you'd be against that? State capitalism? Hm, doesn't sound like what you talk about.

    Why would they care less? You're making assumptions, oh yes, I also know a philosopher.

    Really now? Talking about, in reference to the current states, a group of people rising up, and saying I wouldn't stop them, what the **** does that have to do with communism, a stateless society?

    guy you know we were talking about the power of force by the type of system you are proposing....which is all we have talked about..... i have never talked about a system other then what you are proposing.

    this shows either two things, you don't know what you are even discussing, or you screwed up and are trying to cover your mistake.
