: Ahhhh, the perfect example; Accuse me of being a Nazi. Fine, I just don't care to respond to that sort of tripe.
: Extend the same method of 'argument' and you get the above, ie; nonsensical assertions based on one's own definitions. Contort the definition of 'capitalist' to include the actions of dictators of sovereign countries, misrepresent genocide on the part of foreign leader as being directed from Washington DC for the benefit of Wall St,
: create empty but emotional phrases such as 'Thatcherism' and you've got plenty of solid Soviet propaganda ready for the gist mill to make come up with '100 million capitalist deaths'. Is it any wonder the modern Socialist today is the laughing stock of the world?
: Sixty years ago you would've been on Goebbel's staff Samual Day Fassbinder.
: Anyways, you have to explain why so many people want to come to this country, not Cuba, not Russia, not India, not Africa, not Nicuaraugua, not the Congo, not Beijing, not N. Korea, not Yugoslavia, not Italy, but here, the US, if capitalism is as wicked as you and other Leftist idiots say it is. Why is that Samual Day Fassbinder? What is it that poor and uneducated people all over the world know that you don't? Have they read Hayek and Von Mises? Or have they lived through the political and economic systems that you promote?

You're going to fight this battle forever, French. SDF is never going to identify anything as "communist" except his own very specific interpretation of it. He'll also identify as "capitalist" every hoodlum on the planet. In doing so, he can assert that no "communist" ever killed anybody and "capitalists" kill everyone - and he can win all his arguments - yea! But note how difficult it is for him to find a soulmate - even here. Unless you figure out how to nail jello to the wall you're only going to spin your wheels.

Well at least your waking up the right neighborhood.

And how 'bout it, Sam. Tell us why the folks aren't swimming to Cuba!
