    Re: Will Capitalism Last Forever?

    All of the countries mentioned are, or have been deformed workers' states at one time. In the case of China, capitalism has long been restored, and class struggle has recently been on the increase...
  3. Re: Portuguese Socialist Party gives a lesson on Patriotism to Humiliated Cuckservatives

    Perhaps it wasn't clear, my perspective is that the Communist Party should have focused on grassroots organizing and democracy, as opposed to trying to carry out a backroom coup d'etat.

  5. Re: Why was there so many short lived Empires in what is modern day Iran (and some neighbours)?

    Large ethnic and religious divisions, location in the middle of trade routes (making it a target for conquest), and probably a lot of other things. The aforementioned ethnic and religious definitions...

    My understanding is that he founded the KKK explicitly as a hate group, but that later on he had a change of heart and started supporting black civil rights. One need not try to write off the bad...

    Yes, but not only detained - by the end of it several thousand were murdered or "disappeared" in a very short period of time.

    Well, the Left, as in - the actual left - have always opposed gun control as well. There is an interesting conversation that can be had about Reagan's gun control legacy, and how much of it was due...

    Re: Ethics of Vegetarianism

    I'm vegan, but I also don't believe in ethical consumerism. It's only a dietary choice, and it's not going to save the world. I do believe, however, that you're ignoring several studies showing that...

    It's not necessary to try to defend the Nazi regime in order to criticize other genocides, and other war crimes. One CAN be against the Holocaust, the U.S. dropping bombs on Japan, Stalinist purges,...
  23. Re: Is the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) a single-payer system?

    It's a market-based system based on "competing" companies. In my own opinion I'd actually call it more of a hand subsidy of private business than anything.
