    Whoever criticizes capitalism, while approving immigration, whose working class is its first victim, had better shut up. Whoever criticizes immigration, while remaining silent about capitalism, should do the same.

    People promote violence, some people in the name of religion, but religion doesn't.

    Fairly tales like equality and progress?

    People organised by fairytales have a clear record of doing it most often.This will infuriate evangelists, Catholics, Mormons and Tom Cruise, but I do not distinguish between them and communists or national socialists.

    The only difference is their armaments.

    Come sit down beside me I said to myself
    And although it doesn't make sense
    I held my own hand as a small sign of trust
    And together I sat on the fence

    You understand what a non-sequitur is? Or don't you understand Latin?

    Why are YOU of all people asking me this question? Human values, values that do not require religion.
    Sorry--but I do not accept the idea that being intolerant of intolerance is THE SAME THING as being intolerant of anything else.

    There is no perfect equality, and anyone who claims there is is indeed like a religious person believing in fairy tales. Fortunately virtually nobody believes that, so your point is moot.

    And progress is something that happens, to act like it doesn't is to ignore reality.
