Pedroff, I think you missed his point. The reason it isn't capitalism is precisely what you state as a supposed "ultimate" or "corrupted" version of capitalism. If you have one man, like Baltar, controlling resources, production, and anything else, then it is far from capitalism. If you haven't noticed, the government doesn't control how much fast food you buy, or how many hours you work. What Baltar is doing, makes him more like Stalin than anyone else, only an apathetic version of Stalin (at least he isn't having people killed directly, I'll give Baltar one for that). No offense, but it seems like you miss the point when you steer the conversation away from the definition of Capitalism, to the struggle between good and evil. That has nothing to do with it. Lol. In Capitalism, force of will doesn't make the world go 'round, money does. If Baltar paid everyone to get his way, then it'd be slightly more like Capitalism. I don't know how to make it any more painfully obvious, but Capitalism means you go for what you want, individually, it doesn't mean you get yourself elected as leader and hold back resources and oppurtunities for employment. Honestly, go to wikipedia.org and type in 'capitalism', and you'll get the point.
On another note, I wish people would've cleared their heads a little more before they let Baltar into positions of power constantly. I think 6's plans for him, or what she claims are God's plans for him, are muddling up the fleet constantly; what with his cowardice and incompetence. The guy gives troubled but brilliant people a bad name. I think the next episode is going to start off with the Cylons helping people (antibiotics, etc), but implementing new rules. I bet cruel irony will have 6 or a sharon teaching the kids, in a makeshift school. I would like to know what'll happen to Baltar, Roselyn, and also people from Galactica and Pegasus who came to live down there, instead of stay on the ships. Heh....It should be good.
