What a sick hypocrite. Everything Schiff said is, factually speaking, a lie. This is why revolutions occur.

They both made perfect sense. Ideally both ideas are good but both neglect the idea that when you introduce imperfect humanity to any system, ie. Business, Church, Government, you are going to have greed, envy, etc introduced where theory neglects the possibility or reality that it exist. They both acknowledge a need for a means to regulate behavior but both seem to feel one means is superior when I really think we need both to correct the excesses of the others. I say tie in this argument leaning towards the idea that government has been bought off by big corporations but that also big corporations or any can be good or bad depending on ones morality, ethics, and most importantly Interest. The whole thing is about one I interest over the other. America the nation does bad because it is good for our interest. The us that make is immoral or just the winners?

I personally think capitalism is the best of a lot of crummy systems. Only when Christ returns do I expect any "perfect" system, a Monarchy.

I've often not liked Schiff, but I liked him in this encounter.

What's not to like - he images the American devotion to the flesh-god Baal perfectly.
