That definition is very similar to the definition I gave. The one I gave was a little simpler and inclusive. The one you give 'isnt always correct'. Consider many of the socialized systems and how that definition doesnt apply. The one thing that gets left out of that definition is that the communit...

A society only succeeds in the long term if there is no under class. I leave it to you to figure out what that means. I have to disagree here. All societies through history have had an underclass of one kind or another and a lot of those societies have thrived for centuries. Some kind of a class/ca...

Democracy, by definition, is socialism, because we the people decide how to spend our money as a whole, and how much we will spend together or seperate. I don't think this is a valid argument at all - take a look at this article , which nicely explains the different types of democracy. Nowhere that...

Oppressing people costs. When it goes too far, terrorism is the result. As far as I know, Saddam was quite a dab hand at oppressing people in his day, but any attempts at terrorism by the oppressed were ruthlessly dealt with, and his methods achieved his desired results. On the other hand, the Amer...

I'd assumed that the reason some people buy higher rated power supplies is that the fan doesn't really kick in until it reaches a load of 50% - 60%; therefore when the PC is working at max, say using 300W it will still be pretty quiet. That would be my reasoning anyway. Also, given that a 5% differe...
