You're first 3 points are immediatly moot. Marx was a hard worker. He was a journalist, writer and a politician, constantly chased out of the countries he established himself in, constantly needing to re-establish his party and organizations and had to go through nearly inhuman means to keep the First Worker's International together as long as it did. Secondly, it was not his wife who constantly supported him. The Marx' came by with very little, but when the need was high, it was Friedrich Engels who happily lend a hand to support his friend.

Monopolies inevitably form in deregulated capitalist societies. Regulation ensures competetion, without it, we would end up with a small bunch of monopolies due to the aggregation of capital and the agressive ouster of adversaries on the market. Read "Imperialism as the highest stage of capitalism" by V.I. Lenin to know more.

I suggest an apology to Marx from you is in order.



No, they're not, he never worked a job in his life, he was no more than a crackpot philosopher, he was no politician. No, he was kicked out of Belguim because he was arming the Bulgian revolutionists, and he was kicked out of France because they realised he was a moron. He often got money from his Father and his Wifes Family, Marx's family was a upper-middle/lower-upper class family, the fact that he inherited at least 5000 Francs way back in 1848 (IIRC, it was when there was massive uprising in Europe, which also lead to the French Monarchs being overthrown) tells you all you need to know about his own families wealth, let alone his wifes. Yes, like I said he exploited the workers of Engels families factory. He's a complete hypocrite.

If you truly believe that deregulation leads to monopolies in the free market then you have no economic knowladge at all.

No, the only apology regarding Marx that is in order is HIS appology to firstly his whife, who by his means ostricised her from her Family, proceeded to lead what should have been an upper class family, considering both family backgrounds, to lose FOUR out of the seven children they had by living in truly awful conditions (because he refused to go out to work and earn money, and boozed what they had away), AND for cheating on her with the 'housekeeper', who was nothing more than a slave, as he never paid her. Then he needs to appologies to society as a whole for spewing such utter nonsense that has lead to untold, unessecary deaths and turmoil in the world.



I'm only interested in replying to the bold part.
You realize that vitually every PC comes with windows and no other OS, right?





I LOVE ICELAND!

Lol.



Made a bet with LipeJJ and HylianYoshi that the XB1 will reach 30 million before Wii U reaches 15 million. Loser has to get avatar picked by winner for 6 months (or if I lose, either 6 months avatar control for both Lipe and Hylian, or my patrick avatar comes back forever).

and vice versa. I love how because I am a moderate I am called a fascist by the collectivist left and a communist by the collectivist right.

That "vice versa" is quite controversial, to put it mildly. Unfortunately, the situation is far from symmetrical.

Simply, there isn't much left left (even to the point of the very term being considered archaic and redundant by some) - and one can comfortably do all kinds of left-right labeling even on the extreme right, without noticing at all that he is doing something wrong. In fact, that is quite common today - we lost the left referrence point.

PS I don't fully believe in these linear simplifications, still it gives relatively accurate image of the way I see modern political dynamics statics.
