The only person I've heard make complete sense (politically).

For instance:

How do you reconcile capitalism with mass democracy?

Which is, of course, what we're fighting over right now.

Oh, and by the way, those of you who worship capitalism: You realize that the feudal system is capitalism, right? Each king, lord, and baron doing what will maximize his profit.

Bits of which remained in this country on the cotton plantations.

If you think that the super rich don't long for slaves and peasants, you need to rethink. They love capitalism. What they don't love is democracy.
