Response to Kevin from WI (Original post)

22. Not in our lifetime, and IF folks like a number of them here ..

 

in DU have their way.. you and I and everyone in this forum would likely be sent to prison camps for criticizing U.S. IMPERIALISM and just as bad: Capitalism in any context but especially in the context of East-West tensions over events in Ukraine.

Defenders of U.S. Imperialism are ramped up with Cold War Red Baiting Rhetoric, and that's just HERE on DU! Feels a lot like a John Birch site in that thread.

This sort of leaves me cold with pessimism. Thankfully there is this forum, for however much longer it lasts.
