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.

If a burial strikes my family as too practical, I'd go for either a viking funeral on one of the Great Lakes or to be sealed up in a tomb with my closest servants and bang-maids so they may wait on my every need in the afterlife.

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.

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?
