Re: The latest in American stupidity/arrogance

When I say arrogance I don’t mean “I’m the motherfucking man!” arrogance. I mean the kind of arrogance where the 5,000 red flags saying “bad idea!” don’t apply to you because you’re a nice guy and that war was decades ago. No hard feelings from his end. It seems he even made a passing comment to au...

Re: The latest in American stupidity/arrogance

Not sure if it is arrogance so much, but definitely naivete. Vietnam vets have visited Vietnam, maybe he was thinking it would go the same. But North Korea follows the rules just as much as suits them, when they feel like it, and the internal socieity is set up to maintain the military. Talk about f...

^gonna hafta +1 that, he's right, and historically that's the way it has always been, specifically cast out of the music threads for whinging, minging and wankery.and, of course, sausage.

Re: Fascism and socialism

lm: it is absolutely the case that the "outline" is not guaranteed, I think I said that, but yes definitely not guaranteed at any step of the way. And I actually have not followed that outline, or have led that life, often to my incredible discomfort and unhappiness (but then I have issues :) ) It ...

Re: Fascism and socialism

All very interesting but was it meant for a thread on fascism? I see what you did there, but not so fast! According to the title, it's a thread on fascism AND socialism. Unless the socialism isn't really there, like they named that country The Union of Soviet Socialist Republics but it really wasn'...

Re: Fascism and socialism

When people get passionate about politics it is my reaction to get them riled up. Because the dialog is good, and because I don't really have any of that passion anymore. The reason for that is because I live in a modern country where politics is to the point where it doesn't really seem to help the...

Re: is it safe to come back..?

Fascism and Stalinism are both totalitarian, but that does not make both words synonymous with totalitarianism . That's fine, it is not my point to make them the same, identical. It is my point that they are understood as being a) real world historical *examples*, implementations and b) of a type o...

Re: Fascism and socialism

so "izquotes.com" is good, and Merriam Webster is not? Fascism is like another italian invention: pizza. Just as you can have it with or without mushrooms, you can have fascism with or without capitalism. It is "top down authoritarian rule" like a corporation is run. Hence your quote re: "corporatis...
