A: Two. One to screw it in and one not to screw it in.
With a newsgroup name like AUM these things are bound to come up.

Then Tom Smith replyed: 'With the economics of masculism, for the immediate future we need to stick
with "nice capitalism". With the abject failure of Marxism, we don't have
an alternative. Most likely that alternative will develop from capitalism,
if there is an alternative or even a need for one.
Maybe focusing on "corporate feminism" would be a good start. After all,
it's that which ails us.
Hi TomYea, richard and I were talking and I asked him what he meant by capitalist, and he said he meant the people who do the bad stuff(you know, the ones who put money before human life etc.) and not the everyday capitalists who conduct buisness. So I said I feel roughly the same about them(I don't like their actions), and I wondered what we should call them to show that we did not mean ordinary capitalists.Thinking about it now I think we should use a word which does not have capitalist in it.RegardsSpence
