It's clear Crusader 4 da truth has already made up his mind. He's not open for debate. But the answer is easily answerable. It just takes soo much typing for someone not willing to change his mind.

Wha'? Maybe you have a different culture where you live, but over hya it's not really accepted to be fat. It's associated, as I understand elsewhere as well, with laziness.

That you support Belarus and Russia for sorta political reasons is revealing. Since this is not a political thread I will therefore not make some association with a Tankie however.

You got it backwards.

How can you even speak of socialisation when the relations of production remain intact? Relations of production determine the property relations, not vice versa. Therefore,...

I object to your use of money. It will not be "revolutionised". This implies continuity between money as universal equivalent for the exchange of commodities and labour credits. It's more a point...
