re: Can pure Socialism work without magic technology? - Ace Midnight
[quote]Not a pure capitalistic system.[/quote] We're defining away the debate then. If we don't like something it's "pure" the other way. But, if it's successful, it can't be "pure" the way we don't like them. And of course, there is no "pure" socialism, either. You win....

re: Can pure Socialism work without magic technology? - Ace Midnight

re: Where does Lindsey Buckingham Rank on Your All-Time Guitar Player List? - Ace Midnight
[quote]even clapton a few years back said prince was the greatest living guitarist. [/quote] First of all - Clapton is a better blues guitarist than he ever was a rock guitarist. I believe it is possible to say that Clapton was both great and overrated as a rock guitarist. I think that's also ...

re: Where does Lindsey Buckingham Rank on Your All-Time Guitar Player List? - Ace Midnight
Underrated, particularly as he is self-taught and has, more or less, a completely unique and difficult to copy style. Fleetwood Mac is definitely on the lighter side of rock, which hurts his reputation among the pantheon of guitar heroes. The same is true for contemporaries Waddy Wachtel, Don Fe...

[quote]Yeah Pickett's charge was brilliant[/quote] I'm not in the position to defend every single thing he did - operationally or tactically. And we all have the benefit of hindsight. But, we don't go around and find things that Newton or Einstein did that weren't perfect then say, "A HA! Not ...
