IAN: Your effort is to equate Hitler responding
to Jews with deadly gas to suppliers responding
to consumers with better washing machines. It's
a shell game. The difference that your analysis
obscures is that one set of responses are acts
of aggression and the other are acts of service.

The response by Hitler is an effort to suppress
control by the many, the response of suppliers
to consumers accepts control by the many. Your
trying to make "the different" "the same as."

>Free-market capitalism is not true decentralisation.

IAN: Free-market capitalism is true decentralisation.
So what's your (central) plan for decentralization?
