Yes, Dave, it really is all over with capitalism. We are living through the beginning of the end. At last.

Arise! ye starvelings, from your slumbers;
Arise! ye criminals of want.
For Reason in revolt now thunders,
And ends at last the age of cant.
Now away with all superstitions.
Servile masses, arise! arise!
We'll change forthwith the old conditions,
And spurn the dust to win the prize.

Then comrades, come rally,
And the last fight let us face.
The Internationale
Unites the human race.

Come the revolution, brother Clifford you will be one of the first out of a job because there wont be any money to pay you.

Do you assume I work in the public sector, Not from? And you assume there is some obligation on us to support capitalism? And Awdree, you don't know the words of a song that's been around since 1871? Rather a lot of assumptions and a lot of ignorance round here.

No Clifford I didn't assume you were working in the public sector but if capitalism dissapeared overnight there would be no money (or system) to pay you wherever you worked - assuming there were any jobs left anyway.
There is no obligation to support anything Clifford - but it's a democracy and you have to accept what the majority want. Whatever political party they vote for most people (in the real world, not your world) would not want to see the end of capitalism.
I asked why so anti capitalist?

In reply to Dave's original question: Yes.

the majority didn't vote tory..but we still got them. Where is the democracey in that?

Money is just a means of exchange, Not from. Do you think labour and what labour works on would disappear without money? What do you mean by 'capitalism'? Do you think democracy is possible under capitalism?

Bastian you are tory obsessed! Whichever major party anybody voted for at the last election they all support capitalism. That's what I was saying to Clifford.

The original cannibalistic inhabitants of Tori Tori island could concieve of no other way of life that did not entail eating each other.Alas that is precisely what they did and now we only have a few of their weather beaten statues probably of their ancestoral goddess Tatcha Tatcha to remind us that they ever existed.

Yes, Not from, the way they did it in the old Soviet Union was to just have one party and the media that supported Stalinism, the Communist Party. The way we do it in 'the West' is to have three parties and the media supporting capitalism. The illusion of choice.

not from around here, you obviously haven't kept up with other threads on here..I don't support any parties of government as they all are powerless...but the tories are making life hell for little people and that is wrong.
