You're welcome. Try to avoid anything that resembles plagiary.

So far I have a very loose idea of opposing the Communist Manifesto. I have mirrored my introduction to be similar to the first two chapters, while being opposite of course.

Once I'm finished reading the pre-existing Manifesto, I will alter my introduction to suit. I needed a jumping off point to get rolling.

For one thing, I include a section regarding a distrust for conservatives, as they only seek to replace Big Gov with Big Church, plus they have their own history of market protectionism and intervention.

I'm keeping things to private messages for now so that the early drafts are not subject to immediate world wide scrutiny, I don't want my work misrepresented before its even finished.

Manifesto is a good word but only Commies and terrorists use it.  (And now 20-year-old white kids who shoot spics in front of Wal-Mart.)  It's just like how Hitler ruined the Swastika for everyone.

People calling themselves "conservative" have held many different positions over time, and people called "conservatives" in the U.S. are not the same as people called "conservatives" in other countries, where they have also held many different positions over time. (See "Barry Goldwater")

Nobody today wants to be ruled by a Theocracy except radical Islamists, but I suppose in a way, they are "conservatives"... I think a good case can be made that white supremacists are "conservatives" too, but so is much of the black power structure... It's a slippery word "conservative". I think if I tried, I could paint Marxists as "conservative". Smiley
