    on a subject with which I am glancingly familiar and therefore rather glib in praising as an alternative to the purely capitalist model. Perhaps any system will fail to reward women on a par with men until the unpaid labour in the home is either shared equally through cultural pressure or is remunerated in some way within the family unit. Frankly, I'm not holding my breath on either outcome.
    The Anti-Capitalist Meetup posts inevitably come at an awkward time in the GMT part of the world. Luckily, due to the Miracle of DK4™, I can check back tomorrow for the rest of the conversation.

        constructive, you provided positive examples of what could be done to deal with the problem. I really think that criticism should always be positive and you have made not only excellent criticism but provided remedies.
