Which means Shell, Nike and plenty of other companies shouldn't pay their personnel, since they get a big part of their money through illegal activitiest, such as sweatshops, bribing/financing local governments and/or armies ... ?

Let's discuss the human rights of people working for Nike in Indonesia.

Oh, so you agree with me ?

Incorrect. If you redistribute money, the country will still be as rich, it will only be distributed in another way. Plus those less-poor people can now consume more, which means businesses will flourish.

Could you give me some examples of what you consider to be communist/socialist countries ?

I know none today, except for Nicaragua during the short Sandinista period and Cuba some time ago.

Oh oh. 29 year olds die of the flu in your country. I've seen pics of people's bedrooms in the Bronx that remind me of Third World (hate the term) countries.

Yes, FOR A FEW. Or 'minority', as you would call it. At the expense of a majority, both in and outside of the US.

It's called abusing a monopoly and crushing any alternative, by taking taxpayers money, and lack of any democratic control
