Subject: RE: BS: Why do we need money?
Piers,

I've read your links and more from that socialist site (of course, they are the 'true' socialists). It sounded to me as if it was 20 years old and then I found that some bits actually were twenty years old. I do not have they impression that the writers have added anything to their knowledge since their university days of old. No source from, for instance, Evolutionary Psychology is mentioned.

What puzzles me about your argumentation is that you paint a money using system in the blackest of colours with the worst of examples from the history of capitalism as if there could be only one type of capitalism, whereas on the side of socialism you dismiss any bad examples by saying that was not the socialism you are talking about. A money using system has not to be identical with a no-reins capitalism.
