6. Jesus, that same bullshit again?!
Edited on Fri Jun-11-04 11:26 AM by RandomKoolzip
No, it WASN'T REAL SOCIALISM! Socialism has nothing to do with the authoritarian regime of the Nazis. Yes, THEY called it socialism, but the Russians called Stalin's government "Communist," but in reality it had nothing to do with Marx's ideas. This is just another attept to make those on the left look evil to those who don't comprehend nuanced ideas beyond the thinnest of surface appearances.

Authoritarian dictators use the aura of "socialism" the same way republicans use the aura of "morality." It's a canard. And it plays perfectly into the hands of those who would like to "hunt down Democrats with dogs" (Phil Gramm's words) in the name of "freedom."

I wish someone had a picture of Grover Norquist, nude, in a bathtub.
