    the hypocrisy. Probably unnecessary, in this diary, where most people know that capitalism is hypocritical. But this particular hypocrisy really pisses me off.

    Don't make it look like it's some kind of tourney of noble knights with the idea that the best man will win because of his own strength and God's guarantee against injustice, when it's actually just a bully robbing defenseless people.

    Sure once I was young and impulsive, I wore every conceivable pin. Even went to socialist meetings, learned all the old union hymns. Ah, but I've grown older and wiser. And that's why I'm turning you in. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u52Oz-54VYw

      ... don't make it look like a repeated series of fair tourneys, when the rules are there for all to see that the winner of a joust can end up with the horse of the loser, forcing the loser to drop out of the knight business ...

      ... so in the end you get a bunch of contests with the one knight sitting on his horse, winning all contests by default and collecting the grand prize without risk.
