lylejk, Chato is a self-proclaimed Socialist. Socialists *love* to bleat about the virtues of sacrifice and of pitfalls of greed. In Soviet Union, you *couldn't get away* from that bleating. It was constant and pervasive. Chato would love to be a spigot in the great machine and be proud of his sacrifice.

And don't bring religion into this. Ayn Rand spoke out against the *institutionalized* sacrifice. When you have a whole nation of altruists, indoctrinated to the bone, and humble Chato, leading them into the bright and selfless future. Because he must.

A pipe and mustache might go out of style, but great ideals keep on killing people.
