Socialism is nice within Capitalism

But no one has ever heard of a socialist factory or a socialist anything creative.

It takes more than 40 hours a week to come up with a product, more in the neighbourhood of 168. It takes obsession, a ridiculous degree of desire to realize some ridiculous-deemed idea.

I believe a product of human ambition represents the forces of evolution. These forces are, as we know, the opposite of fair. But that doesn't mean they aren't required for there to be anything at all. And this is why someone like Ecmandu wants to destroy everything. A lot of people do, very big religions are grounded in this desire.

But I am no member of such a religion, I like this creative spirit that drives mankind to, eventually, colonize the moons of Jupiter. I do not hate the fact that unequal concentration is rewarded with unequal power. I do see how it causes a lot of pain, also to myself. But the alternative is that there is nothing at all.

You don't want to see me accepting your system.

You are very fucking blessed that non contradiction is my higher power.

Ecman, we are supposed to believe that on account of your self-flattery alone?
It is true that liberty is precious; so precious that it must be carefully rationed.
