When he takes the time, Richard's writing is always compelling in
debunking the ideas of monopoly capitalism.  The only defense against this
plague on our lives, however, is democracy: empowerment of the individual
and collective action to restrain corporate abuse of power supported by an
appropriate infrastructure design.  Nevertheless, this is a remedy that
seems to be the sticking place on this list and elsewhere.  People seem to
be hopelessly stuck in the old self-interest, marketplace, monopoly
capitalist ideology, which is destroying the democraic mission and
drowning the whole civilization in inequities, misery, and violence
without end.
