    If You've Heard of Someone, Don't Listen to Him

    I am going to take your advise. I have heard of you so I won't listen to you.
    Political tags - such as royalist, communist, democrat, populist, fascist, liberal, conservative, and so forth - are never basic criteria. The human race divides politically into those who want people to be controlled and those who have no such desire.
