And who do you think will go all the way to Turkey to find
that book, to follow up on this very important "lead" from
you...? Especially considering that you yourself made the
comment that "You were not about to make a trip to Turkey
just for that"...?
But let me tell all the readers, who are not about to make
a trip to Turkey just to find this book, that what he says
in his book is correct... You may judge his work just as an

I have been reading those "high linguistic content" articles
about "Kurdish language", crossposted to umpteen newsgroups...
I have seen in some of them (as in other articles in the past)
that the speakers of those different "Kurdish *dialects*" admit

The Means of Sustenance
in various socio-economic and political systems
Socio-economic and political systems usually stress their superiority by
criticizing the deficiencies of competing systems. However, common to all
systems is the drive to define and achieve control of an individual's (or
group's) means of sustenance. The most totalitarian and unsustainable
systems are those with the greatest restriction upon the means of
Domination of a group or individual is not possible unless you disrupt
self-sustenance. Individuals or groups which are denied the means of
self-sustainability are easily exploited and controlled. They become
dependent upon others for their means of sustenance.
External control of the means of sustenance creates a dependency
relationship. That dependency creates a need in the individual controlled
to please his controller. This is essential in order to maintain his means
In climbing the hierarchical ladder that his controller presents, the group
or individual wants to achieve the highest status possible. Higher status
is defined by higher degree of power through various means e.g. physical
control, birth to Nobel families, religious, nationalistic, philosophical
and political beliefs and money. This is a continuing spiral. This
maximizes his controllability as the means of sustenance can easily be
taken away by coercion, force, deception, or neglect. The quest for status
comes at an ever higher level of power necessary to maintain a new
artificial level of means of self-sustenance.
Self-sustenance involves an individual's (or group's) ability to define and
create it's own independent environment. Self sustaining groups or
individuals are independent. They husband their resources to maintain that

Typical example of dependency related means of sustenance are:
income via salary, hourly wages, soldiers pay, charity, welfare
Dependency related means of sustenance can be taken away solely at the
option of the controlling party.
Independent means of sustenance are self-directed or self-controlled
actions of individuals or groups. They do not directly require the
exploitation of others.
Examples of independent means of self-sustenance:
Farms or homesteads- capable of fully supporting an individual or group
Possessors of Capital- capable of providing income via investments or real
Isolated Tribal groupings- such as the Eskimos or Pacific Islanders
The self-sustaining entity is fully independent and self-directed.
Looking on various socio-economic and political systems from the point of
view of the definition of the means of sustenance, we develop the following
PURE THEORETICAL SYSTEMS Means of Sustenance
SYSTEM CONTROLLER DEPENDENT SELF-SUSTAINING GROUPS
FEUDAL Landowner Peasant None
CAPITALIST Capitalist Labor None
COMMUNIST Government Citizen None
SOCIALIST Bureaucracy Citizen None
MILITARY External authority Chain of Command None
SLAVERY Slave Owners Slaves None
Each system consists of opposing and antagonistic groups. External control
of the means of sustenance defines a relationship of dependency. The
controlling group can only be sustained by the exploitation of the
In all the pure systems, there are no self-sustaining groups. In all pure
systems, the controller completely controls the means of sustenance by
totally controlling ownership and property rights.
Common organizing tool of civilization.
Dominance is the ability to define and control the ability to be
self-sustaining. The means of self-sustenance are taken away and replaced
by providing controlled sustenance.
Domination is achieved by the creation and nurturing of master-slave
relationships to control individuals or groups.
HISTORICAL SYSTEMS Means of
HISTORICAL CONTROLLERS DEPENDENTS SELF-SUSTAINING GROUPS/ SYSTEMS
FEUDAL Landowner Peasant Small landowners/Minimal
CAPITALIST Capitalists Labor Small capitalists, Landowners/
High Private Ownership
COMMUNIST Government Citizen None/None
SOCIALIST Bureaucracy Citizen Small tradesmen and Landowners/
MILITARY External authority Chain of Command None/None
Slavery Slave Owners Slaves Some slaves are rewarded with
In historical systems, self-sustaining groups (and individuals) can exist
only to the extent that the controllers relinquish and respect ownership
and property rights of the self-sustaining group. Therefore, the basic
difference between the systems is defined by the rights of ownership. These
rights, in turn, define the strengths of the self-sustaining group.
The only differentiating argument arises from the preservation of the means
of self-sustenance. This, in turn, is defined by the rights of ownership
and property rights.
Groups (tribes, families, nations, cultures, etc.) or individuals are
independent only if they possess the means of self-sustenance.
The true reason for the failure of the communist system
The failure of the communist system is directly related to the absence, via
prohibition of private ownership, of self-sustaining groups and
individuals. The architect of communism, Karl Marx, noticed flaws in the
historical capitalist system of his time. He saw exploited workers and he
mistakenly blamed private ownership, ownership of means of production and
private property rights for the exploitation. He proposed the absurd
solution of abolishing all ownership and private property rights. In so
doing, all people and groups under communism lost the means of
The communist idea could therefore be defined as an "irrational reaction to
the abuses of other systems" i.e. capitalist, feudal etc.
Ownership of the means of production does not, in and of itself, create a
condition of dependency and exploitation. Only deprivation of individuals
and/or of a large group of people of the means of self-sustenance creates
such conditions. Only then could ownership of the means of production be
used to exercise control.
However imperfect the capitalist system is, it still provides the best
protection of ownership and property rights despite excessive
concentration. This fosters development of a high level of

There is a mailing list for people doing genealogical research in the

in that category (Because of Nagyvarad).

Ezt Te csak belemagyarázod. Íme az eredeti kérdés:

Erre megadtam a korrekt választ:

A parte etimológiájáról szó nem volt, bár nagyon köszönöm az
erre vonatkozó adatokat.
Számomra érdekesebb a parti- alakváltozat, amely egyértelműen
népetimológiai jellegű, arra utal, ahogy a magyar az
idegen szavakat értelmezni és könnyebben kiejthetővé formálni
igyekszik. Erre példa a káptalan, ami a latin capitulum-ból ered,
az inzsellér, aminek a francia ingénieur a forrása és a zsellérre
hajaz. Modernebb példa még a gémkapocs (GEM clips) és a
zsombér (a John Deer traktor).
