Ah, I see. How has the Nueva Mayoría brought in the PCCh, but left the Allendists behind?

What is the "Allendist Socialism (movement)" and why is it backing Ominami?

Capitalism is an excellent economic system and the only kind I would ever want to live under. Shortages are rare and abundance is celebrated. Even in the midst of challenging economic times a person can still afford quality food and living spaces. There are no long lines for water bottles or toilet paper. Capitalism allows for a high standard of living. In fact, in allows for the expectation of a high standard of living. The fact that a good life is something to be expected by so many millions of people is the real testament to the success of capitalism. 

lol shame it hasn't for the rest of the world.

The fascists won't try anything simply because they've got too much to lose in the economic collapse it'd precipitate (the EU, however disgusting it is, would withdraw funding straight away from such a regime).

First ZDF poll after the election:

43% CDU/CSU (+1.5)
26% SPD (+0.3)
10% Left (+1.4)
  7% Greens (-1.4)
  5% AfD (+0.3)
  3% FDP [-1.8]
  6% Others

LOOOL. First time that polling organisation (Forschungsgruppe Wahlen?) have had Left in double figures since 2009. Greens demise carries on unabated - half what they were polling just last month.

I thought we were just naming our preferences above - missed the poll. Usual stipulations apply:

Not so much with atheism, but underlying prejudice to gay or black (or rather asian) people is present.

Furthermore, as disgustingly racist (and downright retarded and illegal) the Oberst-Gruppenführer's comments are, they're quite popular with the wider electorate (and a lot of mayors, who have problems with the resettlement of Romas) and only a fairly small niche circle of bobos and far-leftists actually take issue with his comments (according to a poll, only 21% condemn his comments). Tellingly, the most common response to Duflot's comments (even on Le Monde.fr, not even talking about Le Figaro here) seems to be the usual "why are the greenies annoying us"/"who does she think she is"/"why hasn't she been fired yet".

Ugh. Is there a more effective way to cement a belief than letting it go unopposed/forming a consensus? The long succession of 'tough on benefits' Labour ministers has worked wonders for public perceptions about both Labour and benefit receivers(!).

Middle class meaning working class (like in America)?

State subsidy for capitalists to pay below subsistence wages.

Berlusconi ministers 'resign posts'

Ministers from ex-PM Silvio Berlusconi's party are resigning from Italy's shaky coalition government, a spokesman says.

Prime Minister Enrico Letta flew back from New York on Friday in attempt to prevent the coalition from collapsing.

Mr Berlusconi's People of Freedom (PDL) party objects to a planned tax rise.

Its MPs had already threatened to resign if a Senate committee voted next week to expel the ex-PM over his tax fraud conviction.

Wait, what?

Stumbled across this Youtube. Comprehensively defeated so many right-wing arguments better than I've seen any ministers do, such a waste of talent.

lol perhaps not for long, she was at the Labour conference arguing for socialism just before the 1 min mark. I figured out who she reminds me of: Victoria Coren.

lean gay

Correct.

So far the overall results skew negative. Why so negative, Atlas? Does the forum need a hug?

There's a lot to be unhappy about. Should've included cynical in the list.

Wouldn't vote for any of those bastards.

643  General Politics / International General Discussion / Re: Hash and BaconKing: Left-right positions of political parties' manifestos on: September 28, 2013, 08:46:39 am
Less than credible that Labour's 1992 manifesto was (more-or-less) equally as left-wing as 1945's.

[SLP >] KPÖ > [Der Wandel >] Grn > SPÖ. The rest hold no appeal.

Palikot is the obvious and only answer here.

If you want flat taxes.
646  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: Political figure you love who the Atlas would vote as an HP? on: September 28, 2013, 05:48:00 am
Lenin

You think the Forum would vote HP for Lenin?!

Yep, I think other revolutionaries like Trotsky etc would be too.
647  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Opinion of Capitalism on: September 28, 2013, 05:45:59 am
Obviously HE.
