Subject: RE: Obit: Pete Seeger (1919-2014)
Gargoyles remarks show that he does not understand the economics of the consumer capitalist society.
"Pete Seeger was the champion of left-wing socialism which does nothing but keep the poor downtrodden and on the government dole. It probably would have been a good thing if Peter Seeger really had to work at a 40-hr a week job and learn something about capitalism"
the government dole, is an indirect way of subsidising local capitalism[small businesses such as local shops and pubs] Gargoyle have you ever heard of Keynsian economics? Keynsian econmics has nothing to do with communism.
Gargoyl your post has displayed your ignorance of the consumer society and how capitalism works efficiently.
to paraphrase Martin Carthy" who is this berk.
