    All of which you and Steff are troubled with…

    Private wars lead to public loss.
    .
    If you act out of anger and hateful impulse, you only reap what you have sown, and it is a bitter meal on which to choke.

    Speaking of which, today’s missive paints a very stark picture. It frames the discussion as an “either / or” scenario. Basically, a game where the laurels of victory can be held by only one. Someone must win, and the other lose.
    .
    Winner takes all.
    .
    In which case, there is no need for discussion or negotiation. Neither party has incentive to make terms on any but their own. Parties in conflict can only achieve resolution when ground exists that large enough to meet the needs of both. It might not be much, and it might not be satisfying, but it has to be enough to do.

    If compromise or cooperation are off the table, war takes the stage. And the critical question it introduces is not what be the consequences of defeat, but the opportunities of success.
    .
    If you win, what then? What next? What will this freedom bring?
    .
    Chaos and rule by the fist if you have no plan, both of which will lead back to the re-establishment of the power system you first sought to undo. Right back to square one. So if no alternate exists, seeking conflict is a pointless exercise. You end up with the dead and commemorative plaques bearing mournful remembrances that have all the soul and body of fallen leaves, and will leave as firm an imprint.

    Capital is the enemy of the working class??? If not for someone
    having a litle capital to invest the “working class” would be working for themselves.

    If there were no capital, there would be no working classes – there would be only individual hunter-gatherers with no tools other than self-made.
