GUEST,rarelamb BS: Paris Immigrant?Riots (154* d) RE: BS: Paris Immigrant?Riots 11 Nov 05

"Underneath all that new-BNP facade lies the same old fascists, eh? You must act like British people, its human decency, indeed! Last I heard human decency had no respect for political boundaries. Immigrants, legal or illegal, regardless of religion, skin colour, ethnicity are cut from the same cloth as you and I they are first and formost working people. Yet, the capitalist ideology of 'national identity' takes over from the material reality of living, working and playing side-by-side with other human beings. Migration of people around the world is a good thing. What keeps the poor poor, what deems people from other places enemies, forces people to move around the world, what makes people fear for jobs and benefits, what erodes cultures is the social relations of capitalism: labour and capital, workers and bosses, non-owners and owners of the means of living. Fight capitalism not each other."

Hooya!!! An unapologetic Socialist!!! Pray tell, how do you come up with "the capitalist ideology of 'national identity'"?

The free movement of factors of production increase productive potential. How have you determined that capitalism is contrary to this concept?

I would also be interested in an elaboration of your false dichotemies. I, like many others am a laborer and a capitalist. I am a non-owner and a owner of the means of living.

Fight FOR capitalism, not each other :)
