Yes but i was replying to your 'force' being against the whole idea of capitalism. I see huge forces working for the markets, this means I'm obviously paranoid, or in reality it's not a consumer-led operation but a very real pyschological and physical invasion of concepts of freedom, dressed as the good guys, because 'x' and 'y' are baddies and 'would you like to live under Pol Pot 'etc etc. What about my rights to live on the land, self-sufficiently? I have none, because the land is owned by a Capitalist, and was the minute I was born into debt. I'll have to work for someone else for the greater part of my life to be able to have a tiny patch of land in order to grow crops, even then my house is subject to planning permission and architect fees, when could knock up a perfectly good one evey few years and redesign it from renewable materials. But no, I have to live in a box, and work 9-5 forever, and buy packaged food.

It's just an example of the way 'force' works unde the guise of 'freedom'.
