Definition Time

It seems we're confused about what is what. So I proclaim a time for definitions.

Let's come to some consensus (or at least make the appearance of trying to, for debate's sake) on what capitalism, corporatism, communism, socialism, libertarianism, anarchism, and minarchism really mean. Other terms can, of course, also be defined.

If we're ever going to have a meaningful discussion between anarchists and libertarians (some of whom are probably both), we're going to need to have some base line to stand on. I can't see us having anything of value if one side is speaking Cantonese and the other is speaking Mandarin.

Speaking of Mandarin, I like oranges...

PS: Can someone other than me please make a post? This is supposed to be a community, not my second blog. :p
