I'm not saying communism has worked in the past. I'm not saying it works in
the present. I'm saying that it has possibilities for the future,
especially if/when material wealth becomes equivolent to information.
I'm a willing capitalist now. But there are many in our society who don't
have my luck and/or ability. Some of them live at a level of subsistence
which IMO is beneath that fit for a human. That saddens me. I believe that
someday we'll be able to do better. That's *all* I was saying.
