Where did I make any admissions of guilt such as those you just trotted out? You have characterize ...

And this after you just maligned all blue collar workers as dullards and no-counts while claiming
that the vast majority of mankind must kowtow to a very few elite who decide what justice is.
Envy? Yes, I am envious of a better world which you seem bent on denying mankind.

Robert, your joviality is wearing thin. I wonder if you can sympathise with people victimized by other people and just state here your opposition to free enterprise in a somewhat warped way.

Warped way? I thought we were trying to have a civilized difference of opinion here.
Blue collar workers ARE victimized by capitalism in every step of the way.

What billionaire ever worked 20,000 times longer or harder for each of those billions than the average worker?

That is what you call "free enterprise" makes possible. Capitalism is what Al Capone was a master of.

Robert, I have been my civillest thus far in our exchange of beliefs. I see, though, that it has not had the effect I had wished it to produce...

Why are you so damn biased to believe blue-collar workers are "victims"?

I have been a blue-collar worker too for some time. I had a tough time then and sometimes, yes, I felt I was a "victim". Luckily, I lived in a free society and was therefore free to quit, which I did. Today I look back and consider my belief then was a little melodramatic. I don't really think I was a "victim" then.

So, Robert, to attain loftier levels of a discussion, let me ask you a prize question:

In which of the following four countries did I meet the most fanatical communist agitators: S Africa, Israel, France, Austria, Switzerland?

I spent time in each of those, and as you will point out none of them is a communist Eden. But I swear I met communist agitators in them.

Let me add one thing: Communists were quite active in S Africa even though they were outlawed. I welcomed them because they helped liberate the nation from he Apartheid misrule. I had only sympathies for them, not antipathy.

You still refuse to answer my key question.

What billionaire ever worked 20,000 times longer or harder for each of those billions than the average worker?
