The wage labour system is the most monstrous human invention in history, and is the centrepiece of the exploitation of the working class by the capitalist. The worker is paid just enough to not starve, and be in reasonable physical and mental health in order to work effeciently, while not paid enough to eventually raise himself out of the working class.

The power of Dellusion (sp) you attribute to Bush and the Neocons may well work, given time. There is absolutely no way these socializing methods can possible have an effect in four short years.
In other words, as long as you can pin it on Bush, you feel good. It seems like I am always defending Bush here on ATS
when in actuality I am trying to point out to people that, while he has his faults, he cannot possibly be responsible for everything you blame him for.
Everything I have seen offered as proof so far has been debunked.
