Do neither of you know what "ultra-leftism" means? It doesn't just mean "very left-wing".

To quote Wiki "The term ultra-leftism has two overlapping uses. One usage is a generally pejorative term for certain types of positions on the far left that are seen as extreme or intransigent. The term is also used pejoratively or not to refer to a particular current of Marxist communism, which is closely related to council communism and left communism."

People fitting definition 1 warning against definition 2 is ironic.

The proper definition is definition 2. I am actually a right-communist.

So you're basically an authoritarian who just likes to call himself a commie.

Makes sense.

You should see a doctor about your infantile disorder. Wink

I agree in spirit, though like most liberal ideas, affirmative action is a rather feeble palliating solution.

Yeah, I guess this is actually more or less my position. I believe that everyone should be guaranteed a job the minute they complete their education, but I also believe that affirmative action should be used to guarantee women and minorities are equally represented in those positions.

Right--my main issue with "affirmative action" in practice is its failure to take class into account (which may hypothetically lead to wealthier blacks and Latinos having greater access to assistance than poorer whites or Asians), not with the idea of redressing historical discrimination itself (as I am not a racist). Of course, that would require an acknowledgement by policymakers that class exists. Tongue

Obviously it is an issue. But in contrast to the ultra-misogynistic, quasi-fascist GamerGate movement, its small potatoes. It's like comparing an amoeba to a Blue Whale, although that may be an understatement.

The GG movement is far less powerful than you think it is.

22  General Politics / International General Discussion / Re: Turkey being dicks near Cyprus on: October 29, 2014, 03:11:58 pm
Perhaps Turkish "dickishness" is related to the repeated attempts of Greek Cypriots to unify with Greece while expelling or killing the Turkish Cypriots?
23  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Should the views of the Founding Fathers matter in modern political policy? on: October 29, 2014, 02:27:54 pm
Only to the extent that the views of other past political philosophers matter. I voted no, because that's something less than treating them as demigods.


Well yes. Understanding the views of the American Enlightenment is good for a greater understanding of political philosophy throughout history, but I'm referring more to the "the founders opposed X, therefore we must vote against X" line of thought common on the American right.

F&M is by far the best pollster in the state (they were dead on in 2012 IIRC). I'm predicting a 56/44 or 57/43 win for Wolf.
