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.

Their function is to hang around and be constantly useful as a goad. The ultimate aim is not such humane small potatoes as repatriating refugees.

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/NuxŠlk_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?
