      Here is Martin Luther King Jr. on Marxism

      “During the Christmas holidays of 1949 I decided to spend my spare time reading Karl Marx to try to understand the appeal of communism for many people. For the first...

    • Frame your objections to specific texts written by him. You are not representing his views correctly.

      Only listening and reading can help you at this point.

    • Here is a description of the situation as seen from the moon along with a prediction of how it will play out in the near future.

    • I recall that a few years ago you rejected my comment that King was a Marxist. Dr King was a wise man in many ways and correct about many things but he was also human and dead wrong about socialism. If he had survived he might have come to realize he was naive to believe that socialism could be...

    • And don't forget the poor investment banks who might miss their quarters when they don't get those sweet, sweet IPO fees!

    • Yep, Norquist always figured the rest of his apartment would still be there when he stepped out of the tub.

    • We were discussing what in Martin Luther King Jr.' teachings related to your thinking. There is nothing in your reply that corresponds to what I know of that teaching. You avoid the issue of civil inequality altogether.

      By the way, it is called the Democratic Party. Look it up while you...

    • I know... I know... but... this is kind of how to break a finance system.

    • You're partly wrong and partly right. Inequality of outcome is a result of many forces not the cause of poverty and inequality of outcome exists even without racism or we wouldn't have so many poor white people. Inequality of opportunity OTOH was a factor along with racism that increased poverty...

    • I give Obama the benefit of the doubt that he largely pushed for what he believed in, not as 13-dimensional chess alliances of convenience. I think he believed deficits had to be shrunk, that austerity was important, that brokers had to be given bonuses or they would shrink like recalcitrant...

    • This is why negotiating with Trump in "good faith" is an exercise in suicide. He has no intention of living up to anything, and if he can watch the world burn, he will - even if it *doesn't* make him a buck.

    • The effect is becoming massive, across so many sectors, and yes, it's frightening. Here's another example:

    • Levine portrays "American exceptionalism" as a continuous application of policy that is essentially generated by a sense of our moral superiority. What has been different from administration to administration are varying levels commitment to developing an international community to address...

    • Ah, reminds me of one of those "there I was with my dick up some guy's rump minding my own business..." jokes. You're right, I was a hero and combatant -hand-to-gland no less - plus a victim of the sexual culture wars - I deserve a Purple Heart or some other appropriate organ for my efforts.

    •  If we attack Iran or provoke a war with them within the year I would bet that an established anti-interventionist candidate would get a very big boost.

      Just curious: why would you even think that might happen?

      Did you see this?...

    • Oh, so you were a polyp in Trump's rectal canal during this time period, but a lot of activity over the ears involving Don Jr, Felix Sater, Agalarov, Ivanka, Jared, et al for something that was dead. But then again, they held a big meeting in Trump Tower with a GRU agent/Russian lawyer and the...

    • I guess your eyesight is weak or you would have seen the date on the virtual tower pic was 2013 and should know that Putin nixed the funding for the deal. Cohen may have been trying to resurrect the dead deal later as reported, for his own possible gain on his own initiative but there was no...
