    Why thank you, sir!

    Is your liberalism as fierce as that knock-out avatar?

Does it make you think of large multi-national firms? It shouldn't.

    The influence of big business on government is not corporatism. Perhaps you mean something like corporatocracy? In a corporatist society, the corporation (not necessarily any sort of business enterprise) is the fundamental unit of society. It is in the group or the collective from where dignity, identity, and rights are derived. The nobility, serfs, guilds etc. represented corporate groups in Medieval Europe, for example. Throughout most if not all of the modern west the individual is the basic unit of society. That hasn't changed and likely won't minus a great cultural and intellectual upheaval.

    Edit: Let me put it this way: corporatism is a culture. It's a tradition. It's a way of life.
    I have written in short, that the people I have labeled corporatist are working to make the corporate group the basic unit of society. You may disagree with me about the likelihood of that happening, but let us be clear, that is what I am saying.

    Post transformation, what identify rights and dignity we will have will will derive not from God, not from government, but from the corporate group.

    My dear, as you have no doubt encountered there are several among us now who would drive the very best of us away from here, for they will not, perhaps can not heed the greater wisdom of the Liberal mind. They have driven off dissenters, and my time here waned as I found few who could match me wit for wit! Judge me not for shirking from the battle!

    My good sir, your choice in headwear is a confusing one. I have communed with Pythia and she tells me great things are in store for us here. Many great things!

    Well guess what. You, just showing up today? Best $#@! news I've heard all day.

    Our little soiree began last week - there are about four of us who are making a splash, having a great time. How 'bout this software, too? Wicked-slick vbulletin strikes again.

    I'm so looking forward to hearing your input here and your enthusiasm girds my resolve to stay and play!
