am left yes, not wayyy left, i think working classes get a bad deal, and are manipulated and demonize when they cooperate or unionise.
with the glitch thing iwas prodding the amusing amusing republican sleaze stereo type, you know, bush style cronyism
|EDIT: Cold War propaganda? We were anti socialist for a reason: it doesn't work|
socialism does work really well, and britain would be better off if we were MORE socialist, i.e we trained a workforce, we encourage small buisnesses to succeed, we dont make people desperate for work have to accept lower and lower wages, people dont starve poor people dont have to die of cancer, yet we still have a bit of free market, and would have more strangley if we hadnt privatised so much.
| USSR, Union of Soviet Socialist Republics|
theres been some pretty awful dictators calling themselves democracies and some evil countries that were republics, but we dont say democracy doesnt work...for some reason.
you'l find the nazis called themselves socialist too, they werent.
the soviets called themselves socialist and communist, they werent either of these things either they were both totalitarian, the state and the police completely in power, and america is turning into something totalitarian, its creeping right everyday.
|I would hardly call Democrats "right wing"...|
i think the rest of the world does, thats why i say america is creeping too far to the right, theyre so afraid of the left that the republicans wanted to demonize them simply because theyre opposition and thats a political tactic (its actually an un-democratic tactic by the greek definition of the word) and by demonizing them they have said they are left wing, terrifying the americans into a frenzy "left wing is anti american" and scared americans think
"socialism is communism, communism is totalitarianism" and then they think "obama is a muslim terrorist" because the poor american brains have been fried by fifty years of propaganda.
free market capitalism isnt without its slaves and casualties either, just you dont get to see how it works in your own country, heard of bo pahl disaster? then the little kids who make your shoes it would be better for the smaller buisnesses in the usa if the werent made elsewhere, then check out the wars for oil or in afganistans case, getting the piplines we didnt want the soviets to get (thas why we gave the taliban stingers) theres also a great book called tales of an economic hitman, its about how the cia would manipulate leaders of banana republics for resources and contracts, even if it meant the cruel oppression of the masses.
we should all follow devonrevengism is what im saying
