-- George Orwell
Seeing that we have Neo Nazis there is no creed too stupid for some people.
I don't know, man...at least the neo-nazis are considered idiots and not taken seriously. Their counterparts on the left, Marxists, hold professorships all over the American university system and their views are taken very seriously indeed, by the highest levels of society. Sad, really.
Really? Explicitly cited Godwin's Law, modded up to +3? WTF? Why isn't this shit at -1 where it belongs? Jeez talk about hateful wishful thinking...it's like a catalog of what leftists wish were true. And in their playbook, repeating something enough times does make it true. We learned that one in the 20th century.
"We are all capable of believing things which we know to be untrue, and then, when we are finally proved wrong, impudently twisting the facts so as to show that we were right. Intellectually, is possible to carry this process for an indefinite time: the only check on it is that sooner or later a false belief bumps up against solid reality, usually on a battlefield."
-- George Orwell (1903 - 1950)
"Our principle is that the Party commands the gun, and the gun must never be allowed to command the Party."
-- Mao Tse-Tung
"That rifle on the wall of the laborer's cottage or working class flat is the symbol of democracy. It is our job to see that it stays there."
-- George Orwell
Those treehuggers would gladly put every corporation on the face of the planet, including Tesla, out of business tomorrow if they could. Left-wing extremism is no joke.
It speaks volumes that you're either not aware of this, or are aware and agree with it. We need only look to Venezuela to see what happens next.
Congratulations - you have just reinvented the hovel.
Do you people ever think beyond the immediate consequences of your actions? It's clear that the answer is "no". As soon as the requirement of electricity is removed, shitty-ass slums will immediately appear. Sure, they'll have solar panels on the roof - old broken ones from 5 years ago. But fuck it, because these codes are old-fashioned - Dad's stuff! Ridiculous for this day and age!
LOL. State ownership of huge companies is indeed a hallmark of communism. I love how so many people are desperately trying to say China was never communist in the first place, because it didn't work out well. It's funny how many capital-C Communist regimes there were in the world - and yet not a single one was communist. It's the No True Scotsman fallacy in action.
They are, in fact, communist. However, they are taking the capitalist road to achieve socialism. This is a heresy of communism, one Mao warned against repeatedly. Critical thinking led the Chinese Communist Party to take the capitalist road, and this lifted the Chinese people out of grinding poverty. Today, things are better than they've ever been before, and tomorrow will be better.
