@Adam Gaskins first: to avoid misunderstanding: there are indeed very successfull attempts to implement socialist principle in societies. Scandinavia is one and I dare to say, that even Cuba has its merits. Though the Castro Regime is far from being democratic, it has never been a brutal tyranny and given the fact, that the regime has been under really heavy pressure from the US for 60 years now, that looks to me like: they actually do not want to brutalize the cubeans just to stay in charge, they rather organise a fairly acceptable standard of living, that is in some aspects(medical care) better than the one of the lower half of the US citizens.

Then you said a very true thing: "we humans have a hard time not putting things in tidy little boxes"
Exactly: ideals are one thing, real life (tm) is something different.
A govt, that does its best to improve the life of as many people as possible is better than a regime of idealists, that do anything to stay... show more

@Adam Gaskins - Great insights and I largely agree. However, I think that the US, in particular, needs to move much further to left. Most Democrats are too far to the right. We need someone like Bernie or Andrew Yang as president.



Let's Reinstate Net-Neutrality!


Please take a moment to help in the fight to restore net-neutrality! It's a very short & to the point bill that is being proposed here: https://www.congress.gov/116/bills/s682/BILLS-116s682is.pdf. It may take all of 1-2 minutes to read, as it only seeks to reenact the parts of the FCC that Ajit Pai has been dismantling for his former employer and other big corporate interests!

Ajit Pai (https://duckduckgo.com/?q=how%20bad%20is%20ajit%20pai) is one of the more vile characters to come from Trump's administration, and he has clearly stated his interests in helping to destroy net neutrality along with any laws that might prevent monopolies from growing stronger and gaining control of every aspect of our digital lives! The FCC's purpose is NOT to help Verizon monopolize markets!

Here's a starting point for taking action on this:

According to South Korea, Donald Trump's (@realdonaldtrump) "friend" Kim Jong Un has executed members of his envoy immediately after the recent summit!

Optional rant:
If this turns out to be true, then what's next? Trump openly admires this guy (depending on where his BPD is oscillating at)! Trump is supposedly some sort of self-proclaimed genius strategist and deal maker... and this is the outcome he gets. The president of the United States is a child in an adult body - and not a smart child! So many folks told him this was a bad idea in the beginning, yet he thought he alone had the powers to solve a decades old problem, and ignore all advice, wisdom or history that had come before him with this.

Given that Trump normally operates by simply taking things the next level when they don't go his way, what is 'the next level' here? This isn't a dictator you can just have a beer & shoot the shit with to talk it out. He's a vile dictator, megalomaniac, narcissist, and just generally despicable human being... and the #

erm, i don't think trump ordered the execution

@stan prentice That is correct. That's also why no one implied that he did.
