Given your most recent reply to Cyrus, I find your recent posts in this thread

to be highly ironic. You referred to what you and others take to be "so obvious",

but when I what I claimed as being self-evident you took great exception to. So

you didn't like my (what I took to be forthright and non-evasive) replies to

Dave Z? Well, OK, that's your prerogative. But, I note that you also

in this discussion have referred to imperialist nations without specifying exactly

the criteria which separate imperialist nations from other nations. So - by

your own standards - you are displaying your "political prejudices". By my

standards, you are simply being inconsistent and, curiously, not even aware

of the inconsistencies.


In solidarity, Jerry
