Skype is trying to kill me. First a hacker worm attacked me with a bunch of spam websites delivered by my contacts, and then I got locked out and my account suspended. What a great morning its been.

Probably should've realized this thread was here before making my last post, oops.
But yeah, Outlaw here (or Cloud from TZ if you prefer); hopefully gonna try to stick around this time and not just withdraw coolly like usual because I don't know what to post about.

Hey, welcome back!
Life is not about the second chances. It's about a little mouse and his voyage to an exciting new land. That, my friend, is what life is.

Sir, do you have any Warrants?
I got their first CD, but you can't have it, motherfucker!

Don't get why half of Twitter has the Communist symbol on their name. Racism and capitalism are awful, yeah, but mass famines and gulags aren't an improvement. I suppose they mean socialism, but none of the countries they praise as socialist ideals like Canada and Denmark aren't even socialist. I think socialism can work with enough care and thought put to it, but to think it will cure all of America's ailments instead of only some of them is naive. And the number of people who talk about nothing but the evils of one ideology and the wonders of another grows ever obnoxious to me.

Those are probably the Internet Stalinists who have somehow convinced themselves that every atrocity committed by the USSR and other Communist regimes didn't actually happen. Tankies are weird, man.

Democratic Socialism is the future IMO. Totalitarianism and rewriting history are horrible no matter who does it or what their governmental system is.

I'd like to think Socialism will be a viable option in America, and that things like universal health care or universal basic income will become actualities that anybody can attain, but there's too much in-fighting in the Left for that to happen anytime in the foreseeable future. Too many obnoxious leftists or neoliberals or antifas or whatever who think they're absolutely correct, and fail to realize such elitism only alienates people from their cause. I get it, Bernie Sanders was cool. But saying that he would've won a hundred times a week just makes me never want to hear his name again. And because of that, too many people see leftist ideals as a lost cause. People were so up their own ass about cultural Marxism that their beliefs failed to appeal to the average man, and if you managed to make people think the Right are more charismatic and charming by comparison, then you've failed as a movement.
