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.

I don't know, I think the beat-back that happened in the wake of the Inks-Deluge debacle (and the descent of Leip to address it) means that the Mods don't have the standing right now to pull off a ban of a big-name poster.  this place would absolutely erupt, at least for opebo.  jmf maybe a bit less so, but still an outcry.  doesn't mean it could not happen at a future point.

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?
