Was interested right up until the condescending tone suggesting government should be represented by a tank, ...

I prefer George Carlins "stuff" skit anyway. :D

Clicked on the link, then on the site-clicked on "Disposal". I saw the word "Greenpeace". That was enough for me.

The problem with sites / speeches / books like that one is they're too condescending to speak outside of "the choir."

If you already know / teach the full effects of a market economy / consumer class, then you're put off by the low amount of actual information.
If you are a die-hard Walmart Shopper, orwhatever, you're put off by the bitchiness and "you're bad, stuff is bad, $$ is bad" attitude.
