Re: Just a question posed...

What is the opposite of man exploits man? You've said this before and it meant no sense then either, because the opposite is either 'woman exploits woman' or 'man doesn't exploit man'. The opposite of "man exploits man" is "man exploits man". The point being that both systems have the same effect.
