Sometimes I feel like a bird blown off-course, surrounded by the wrong bird or flock, never mind that the birdhouses' doorways are too big, too small or the wrong shape. Other birds, on the other hand, seem blissfully unaware that they're with the right flock and in the right house for them. But then, maybe that's just my feathered perspective. Then again, if you're a swan and you've grown up watching Duck-TV all your life, that's going to mess around with your mind... maybe to the point where you begin to think you're a duck.
If it kind of walks like a duck, sort of quacks like a duck, somewhat looks like a duck, etc., is it a duck?
If a duck thinks it's a duck and there's no bird to tell it otherwise, does it make a quack?
Anyway, I've read that what some people think Communism is or was, may actually be, or have been, one incarnation or bastardization or another of State Capitalism.
