IH0052 today-
Someone made the claim that “communism worked fine in Russia until the Lenins (sic) took over.
Someone used the word “capitalistical”.
The claim “communism wouldn’t work because McDonald’s is everywhere” was made.
I stated that scarcity was a criterion for how much people are paid, the word scarcity was then used 11 times before the class finished.
The statement “the purpose of capitalism is to put down the man” was made.
Someone called Franco and Hitler communists.
Someone said “It may be our fault but we can’t be held responsible for our actions” (close, I didn’t get a chance to write this one down like the ones above).

If this isn’t proof that I learn with the vanguard of American intelligentsia, I don’t know what will.
