Word of caution to comrade Brad--  years ago, arguing against peak oil,
said that my arguments were agreeing with those of the oil industry 
executives.  I didn't think so then, and I don't think that, now, the 
arguments of Jon Flanders and others are in agreement with oil industry

executives.  They, the capitalists can and will mouth anything and 
everything and out of both sides of their mouths all at once if it
means an 
extra dime in their, or their shareholders, pockets.

If the capitalists, or even those layers of society attached to

CB: Let me say to Comrade Brad, when someone like Comrade S. Artesian
says this it is very significant; you really want to consider what he is
saying. I'd refer you to the list archives to find C. S. Artesian's many
arguments in the same vein as your argument above.
