Being fair minded is not the same as accepting.


Unless there's an English /American English usage difference perhaps?


Quote:
fair-mind·ed
ˌferˈmīndəd/Submit
adjective
impartial in judgment; just.


Socialism is slavery. See how fair minded I am?

So, Wally, what are your thoughts on this?


The bogeyman of socialism in the right wing discourse is outdated. I'd suggest that it's also confused with totalitarianism, which as a glance at Belgium will tell you, is not a necessary condition of socialist government

Under Communism, it's the exact opposite.

I that a quote from someone? I have to admit to not knowing much about Belgium other than my sister once had a Belgium Warm Blood named Popov. (He had a Russian name and responded to german commands)

I will say, that the jury is still out as to how long the socialist conglomeration of states in the European Union will be able to hold together.  Interestingly, what the Kaiser and Hitler could not do through force, the new Germany has seemed to accomplish through political defato control of the EU.

You’re looking at this through a prism. Firstly, it’s not a socialist conglomeration.

Many European nations make use of economic and political tools -democratically selected- that are recognisable to old school socialists.


But they’re essentially free market capitalist countries, which moderate the excesses of capitalism.


Take another look.

MR. Wally...


Take a good look at the title of your thread

Now, with that being said, what holds more in line what I post or what you post? Wink


Your fairyism or my realism Wink

Think about it Wink

By the way...  People are not stupid.   Everywhere Marxism has become Despotic Dictatorships enslaving their people, began as socialist utopias promising to give each citizen a far better life than they ever had.  For a time, they (have to) deliver on their promises "to keep Hope alive") it has never worked!  Ultimately the people a bitterly disappointed but they lack the means to self determination and they become slaves of the state.
