I'd rather fight dying to get out of tyranny than live under it....but that's easy to say where I'm sitting.  



But I'm still saying it.

Better red than dead. Actually, any colour seems quite a bit better to me than dead.

This raises a point of interest for me. Is the poll about whether the responder thinks society would be better off if all of its socialist and communist members were either gone or purged by the state, whether the responder would voluntarily become co-opted into a communist or socialist party that dominates a repressive political culture, both of them to see which outcome one would feel more averse to, or... ? My post reflects the opinion I would have in the former-most case, but if it were the second interpretation I would probably feel inclined to agree with the posters who are quoted.

No that's my display name, and I didn't make it up. I liked it because it's actually an actual work: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nuxálk_language#Syllables

You've internalized the system and you're ready to scoff at anyone questioning it.  Anyway, you'll just work till you die just like under the 'reds' - what's the diff?

99% of those who say this are deluded.
Logged

Our numbers are dwindling. Our words are confused.
Some of them have been twisted by the enemy
until they can no longer be recognized.

Now what is wrong, or false, in what we have said?
Just some parts, or everything?
On whom can we still rely? Are we survivors, cast
away by the current? Will we be left behind,
no longer understanding anyone and being understood by no one?
Must we rely on luck?

This is what you ask. Expect
no answer but your own.
