Hey! That's what 'diversity' means! nyuk nyuk nyuk.
: : Anyways, what in the world is wrong with being armed to the teeth? The folks up in Idaho, I learned, have relatively easy access to weapons, much easier than here in California, yet have a much lower homicide rate than Ca. But in localities with tons of laws directed at idiots, notably Washington DC, the homicide rates are out of sight.

: This isnt an anti-guns post it is an anti-armed and violent capitalists post.

Anti-armed is anti-guns.
: : Switzerland is another example of folks being armed to the teeth but not creating havoc because weapons (real assault weapons, not what the pols say is an assault weapon).

: Why is that possibly they dont have a laissez faire hell, racism and 'neo-conservatism'.

The Swiss, of all people, could rightfully be considered to be the most conservative of the conservative. They didn't get to be one of the worlds richest and most prosperous nation with an exceedingly high standard of living by engaging in the 'third-way'.
: : Isreal? Same thing.

: Isreal is a state in perpetual war, it doesnt matter how much homocide you commit out there as long as your an isreali citizen taking out palistinians (Oops! Better what out for Mossad)

Oh, yeah, the innocent Palestinians...

: : The notion that there is a correspondence between the number of weapons and the number of violent crimes committed is an old wives tale, like the notion that Communism can be made to work. Without brute state force anyways.

: Here's a fact:
: Neo-conservative individualism + Popular American Conservative fiction(The Turner Diaries) + Access to the internet = Oklahoma Massacre of the Innocents.

Did you know that the Muir Building was blown up on the anniversary of this government's brave assault on approx. 90 innocent people, including women and children in a place called Waco? I imagine when the Minute Men beat the crap out of the Red-coats in Lexington there were a bunch of 'Lords' standing around in London saying the same thing that your saying; "Colonial Patriots + Tom Paine and his broadsheets + access to muskets = Boston Tea Party".

: : Besides, given the comparative histories of capitalism (which is lifeless on it's own; it does need a political framework in which to survive, ie; the Constitution and the Bill of Rights)and Communism, which is both an economic and political system, anyone can see that it's the Communist state that produces not goods, but corpses.

: Do I care? The violent threat is from racist, nazi, neo-conservatives who seem to have survived 'post-modernism'without flinching. There isnt any Commies etc. to blame your internationally fucked up economy on now loser, Soros and all the former free market profiteers are thinking, hey, maybe we should be sensible about this now.

"Post-Modernism", I've never understood why so many people lend so much credence to pop sociological terms. What happens after 'Post-Modernism'? 'Hyper-post Modernism'? It's a term that is supposed to make one seem intelligent, like when one uses 'surplus value'.
Hey, here's one for you; you think that the threat is from racists OK. So, tell me, what do the stats show in regards to black on white vs. white on black violent crimes? This may surprise you.
