Still beating on the strawman I see.

They do love their strawmen.

Sounds better than having a bunch of unelected assholes be the 1%. At least the government can be held accountable for what they do.

shooz said all the intellectual material I could contribute to this conversation.

Thats why I am glad you are still the minority. You think your gonna hold anyone responsible for anything in that type of society? Gotta love that public edjoomication.

[-] 2 points by nuclearradio (227) 3 years ago

Who's being held responsible now? How is the current society better? It's seems better because you are used to the oppression and fear change. Standard wingnut tactics: Appeals to tradition and authority, poisoning the well. Snore. Try thinking for yourself sometime.

And what do you call someone who insults people for speaking the truth. Someone who cannot explain how they will hold responsible the people in charge of a socialist country so instead they call the person a wingnut and change the subject. Garbage

Excuse me: who exactly said that OWS is seeking socialism? Where did you get that information?

[-] 1 points by Gileos (309) 3 years ago

You obviously didnt follow our conversation that well. Thats ok

[-] 1 points by nuclearradio (227) 3 years ago

Actually, I followed it significantly better than you think. The OP says that "All Marxist Movements ARE just an attempt to make a new 1%."

My response was "sounds good to me."

But no one said OWS was a movement seeking socialism. the whole socialism thing is a strawman diversionary tactic dreamt up by the plutocracy to keep rightwingers on the attack and unable to hear the message of this movement.

Sounds like you have neen sufficiently brainwashed. I call a spade a spade because i think so. Your defense to that is hilarious.

Someone is going to get banned.

[-] 0 points by Jimboiam (812) 3 years ago

banned for pointing out that every instance in history where marxism has taken over, the people suffer under a ruthless ruling class? Yes ban people for telling the truth.

Wouldn't be the first time. Would this be a good time to point out this movement's foreign origins and management, again?

Seriously, why would any idiot get out in the street and protest the government at the behest of a foreigner.

Rephrase that. Idiots are the most likely to get out in the street and protest....they are also the most likely to die first when that foreign power comes ashore.
