Holy muffins you are throwing that word sheeple around quite a bit! I have to say that word is being overused, mainly by "sheeple" themselves. You use that word when people disagree with you - and the people debating you are using valid points, not some biased tripe. Writing them off as sheeple makes you as ignorant as the accused.

I don't understand how the OP can talk about the ignorance of other people and how dumb they are.

You haven't used correct grammar or punctuation in one single post here. Then again, I suppose grammar is just another construct by the establishment to keep us in control.

A man named Jared Lee Loughner thought the same thing about grammar.

Biased Tripe?
And this is supposed to help the conversation, how?

Bringing in J. L. L. and his goofball interpretations of the effects of language on human consciousness also, to my mind, serve only to aggravate the field of discussion.

The valid points brought up against Creep's position are as you say, valid points. However from following the thread and finding little to disagree with in those points, I gather what Creep is suggesting is that the issue to be considered is not Capitalism (not capitolism creep) or Socialism but a fundamental restructuring of our systems of exchange in light of 21st century knowledge rather than continuing with patchwork vestiges of economic programs based in centuries old philosophies.

Creating monopolies is in human nature, controlling as much resources and stopping the competition. Its when the monopolies take advantage of consumers who depend on their services with over priced items when it is not right.
Economist try to bring in various theories to explain human behavior but honestly you cant put humans into a math equation and turn us into a powerpoint presentation with graphs to predict the future with complete accuracy, we aren't robots.

For those who don't see the parallels of the "Mafia" and Capitalism. In my eyes i see it as this.
Capitalism is the breeding ground for organized crime.
Organized crime is the act of "Criminals" creating front companies for monetary profit and also to hide illegal activity.

Capitalism can be defined as privately held businesses that is in the business of creating profit for all investors and shareholders.

To tie this all together, both corporate entities and organized crime organization are both affected by policy, monetary systems, the market,. The mafia just uses underground means to accomplish it goals while corporate businesses bend laws and policies to their favor the legal way.
