I think that your own garden needs some tending. Good riddance.
When did you become such a dick to people.

Stop signing your posts people!
OK?
I think poor Jerry here has come down with Aghole Syndrome. It's a condition where you first start acting like a dick, then change your avatar to I-MX, and finally, collapse under the weight of your own arrogance.
Don't know why you feel the need to quote someone who likes to attack me for no damn reason, especially when I gave up on even responding to him weeks ago.

Complaining in this thread won't help your case.

Not to say it wouldn't be great to have a more active & energized Leip, it would, but in case of rogue mod(s), Nym could still ban them at least until Dave weighs in.

But I donít have any special red phone access to Dave.

Generic platitudes about muh commies are now the height of hindsight, according to the still hilariously-named BRTD. Roll Eyes

There's two things that made me completely turn against communism:

http://uselectionatlas.org/FORUM/index.php?action=profile;u=6976;sa=showPosts
http://uselectionatlas.org/FORUM/index.php?action=profile;u=6269;sa=showPosts

And of course a realization that if there was any value to Marxism whatsoever, then why does no one except for edgy teenagers and college kids support it today?

If there was any value to hipster Christianity whatsoever, then why does no one except for hipsters practice it?

My lead pastor is a 45-year old father of two who lives in Edina.

Exactly, and the point you made is similarly silly.

So Marxists exist today who aren't Snowstalker-ish edgelords, people who casually talk about genocide and gulags as something completely necessary and OK and/or can only communicate in unreadably dense walls of text? Then why are they virtually impossible to find? I mean you'd think this forum with its wide variety of ideologies would attract at least a few.

None of this has anything to do with how terrible Italian communists circa 1948 were of course.

You are out of your element Donny (Dude/BRTD)

Pray tell how terrible the Italian Communists were in '48?

So look at a country where the Italian Communists were the only political movement actively engaged in the armed struggle against a brutal Fascist regime for decades, over ten years prior to the rise of the Nazis in Germany....

Sure, there were a few brutal incidents in several provinces of Italy against Fascists and collaborators, in areas that had experienced mass brutality and and genocide.... does it make it right, no.

Meanwhile you have the US/UK secret intelligence agencies that subverted the first Post WW II "Free Elections" in Italy, that basically turned the levers of power over to our "allies" that allowed the rise of the Mafia, and breaking the backs of the Communist Dock Workers in the Port Cities of Marseilles and Naples, essentially created the biggest criminal cartel network that Europe had ever experienced.....

I would recommend checking out the movie "The French Connection" and I can certainly provide you with links to academic books that describe this in much more extensive detail...

Based upon some of your comments regarding US domestic politics, I assumed you were a well read individual, but quite frankly sir, your apologies for European Fascism/Nazism and trying to create a false moral equivalency based upon Minnesota social norms of 2017, is getting a bit tiring, and a true disservice to those that fought and died in Nazi and Fascist Europe during WW II.

Had he kept moderating or abandoned this as well? I'm asking because he hadn't explicitly resigned as mod.

He did explicitly resign as a mod.  He did so on the mod board, a few minutes before he even posted his farewell on the public forum.


OK, thanks for clarification.

Thanks for the feedback. This is certainly not set in stone nor an edict from on high so I am open to suggestions regarding how to improve this.

I thought that Morden's description made a lot of sense, but he also seemed to describe the standard in terms that are exactly opposite to those in your second paragraph. Is his post consistent with the standard in which you and the rest of the moderators believe?

Also, how soon will ag be removed from his position as a moderator? The idea that someone in his state can see any poster's email address and IP is disconcerting.

It's a curious situation, isn't it? ag had stopped posting but, as far as I see, was active not so long ago.

No, just no

communism sounds nice in theory...fascism doesn't.

Plenty of things about fascism sound great in theory. Societal order and cohesion, scientific advancement with unified goals, lack of political gridlock and dysfunction, high levels of societal efficiency, business interests made to serve the common good, high levels of communal care for the poor, very little unemployment, etc.

The bad parts of fascism come about in the means... just like in communism.

How is this any worse than saying communism sounds great in theory?

It doesn't. They're both garbage ideologies with zero value that need to be completely annihilated.

It wasn't the point. Praising things such as "cohesion" in fascism as even "theoretically" good is... eh.

As a side note, though, I know it's hard to comprehend for an American, but I'm unable to put communism at the same level with fascism. At least communists, while sucking really bad, didn't plan on annihilating my people and my culture.

LOL!! Mike, you utter buffoon. Google a chart of the last 10 years of the S&P 500. Starting from a nadir 6 weeks after Obama's inauguration it's value has more than QUADRUPLED. And yet you never to my recollection mentioned one word of that uncomfortable (for you) fact in the last 8 years. President Pussygrabber is on the job less than a month and suddenly it's all because of HIM?!?
