No need to, we will probably end up in the same concentration camp :)

But more seriously - I just do not subscribe to the idea that things must get worst before they start getting any better - as far as I know, labor gets a big boot in the times of crisis.

Hmmm. If memory serves, you championed the cause (which seems quite reasonable) that instead of doom-saying, a better way of criticising capitalism is that things could be soooo much better than the status quo. By implication, it is a call to extend privileges now enjoyed by the ruling class & its mignons to the working class. Has that changed?
