I'm just more of less engaging in a "philosophy slam," trying to whittle away extraneous layers of BS and get down to some basic truths, for grins.
Then why are you focusing on the propaganda? If you want to address the issue, address the actual issues, not the propaganda that gets thrown around the issue.

I'm hardcore classical liberal and always have been. Are you accusing me of being anti-free enterprise? Do you think that Keynes was anti-free enterprise? If you think Keynes or myself are anti-free enterprise, well, then there is just nothing to discuss here.
