Re: We only have 12 years to stop socialism or we are all going to die

No, I have faith people will wake up to the danger. But remember the Nazis only got 30% of the vote . True doc; but in a shaky democracy structured unlike that of the USA where a party could gain and use "leverage" well beyond that which its minority voter support would ordinarily have entitled it ...

Re: It was a civil war Cassowary.

So was Berlin, not to mention Nagasaki and Hiroshima. How come I don’t hear you complaining? You want the US to win wars without killing people. I know what it is. You want Socialists to win. That’s why you object to US intervention in Vietnam. Specious comparison! Nazi Germany was an aggressor sta...

Re: Can Hong Kong’s Resistance Win?

It's very similar to their Belt and Road initiatives. They seem to emulate the Japanese in WWII, with their Co Prosperity Sphere. Thing is, it didn't bring prosperity to anyone, including the Japanese! You are right that their so called Co-Prosperity Sphere" (a PR lie for straight out imperialist c...

Re: Can Hong Kong’s Resistance Win?

A loss to Chinese authoritarianism would set a frightening precedent for the world. https://www.nytimes.com/2019/07/12/opinion/hong-kong-china-protests.html I suspect China will understand that preserving Hong Kong's difference is more important than diluting its identity in the main Chinese cultur...

Re: a "voice from the past?"

As far as I am concerned socialism is yesterday's doctrine that has by now been in retreat for so long that it cannot be taken seriously. Socialism is the expression of our concern for people's well being. How can it be "yesterday's doctrine"?... It's like saying that environment protection is "yes...

Re: an afterthought.

You know, in a way I can understand Britain's concern over wanting to keep Malaya-Singapore out of potentially hostile hands in and after the mid-20th century. Both front up against the Malacca Strait. This is one of the world's most important shipping routes and the shipping lane is on that side of...

Re: We only have 12 years to stop socialism or we are all going to die

Well doc, I was sort of hoping that you would reveal why you see socialism as a threat rather that present me with videos of talking heads. :)
