The Magic Power of Words

The True Communist: scandal! In Russia, due to Capitalism, 25% of the riches in the country are now in the hands of 36 families!

Me: Despite the KGB still being in power, what a great progress since the times when a one single man (Stalin) controlled 100% of the riches in the country!

The True Communist: surely you a liberal economist should know the difference between State property and private property?

I guess, as long as it's in the name of the people, it's justified. Well then, whatever I do, be sure that I do it in the name of the people.
