interesting comment following article:

As clarity is attained — and right and left are seen to be a species of masculine and feminine — the inner-dialogue will become an inner-dialectic.

The time may come when the whole thing makes beautiful sense. One sees that life has to be this way for It to see Itself. I.E., without duality and the cosmic war that ensues, there could be no self-seeing. When the mind sees this, it smiles at the whole cosmic joke

Justice under capitalism? Pah! Socialism despite what the capitalist media tells you hasn't even been tried, let alone implemented! Stalinism wasn't Socialism! Maoism wasn't Socialism. Cuba wasn't totally Socialist because it can only work as a worldwide system not confined to a small island beset on all sides by hostile capitalist elites. It still has, and has always had, a better universal healthcare system than the USA with a minute fraction of the resources - why else would citizens of the USA go there for treatment. I bet Glenn Beck loves your promoted essay rofl!

The American system is OG and socialism, Marxism and all this garbage was created by the London school of economics to demonize a hamiltonian system to the neo-con righties who have been indoctrinated on this right to property garbage from the beginning of communist Russia. If you want to hear a genius talk about state craft read Hamiltons report on credit and then write a post.

That essay is fucking stupid. As a socialist i laugh at this. What it's talking about is not socialism, it talking about Stalinism or Totalitarianism.

Go such on your pacifier and ask Mommy for some more candy.

You obviously don't know what socialism or Marxism is. You should read Marx and learn for yourself instead of just listening to what people with your same bias say, even though it's incorrect. You've given your voice and mind to them.

Yes. Only the uneducated that don't know a thing really about socialism would read this and go "Gosh, I didn't know that, socialism must be SO bad."

There have been no calls for socialism here. Only justice.

Maybe you missed this post. We need to de-program people against the brainwashing they've experienced over the past several decades against the idea of socialism, because that is exactly what this country needs.

I call for socialism, but i'm not speaking for everyone of course.
