Make Capit a dirty word

News from Retort

you can’t even mention the words “socialist” or “socialism” in comments on Salon blogs any more. For why? It’s the Scunthorpe problem: the words contain the brand name for a Viagra-type medication — Cialis. So the unresticted global capitalism of the spammers’ economy has finally made it impossible even to mention an alternative.

The irony is that, invariably, there’s more to socialising than sex. Unless you’re doing it with an American spelling.
