Yes, some one who is a vegetarian MUST be out to attack your meat eating ways and could ONLY being doing it to feel morally superior. I happily eat meat and can tell you you're being ridiculous. Yes, there is the occasional vegetarian asshole who like to demonize an entire group of people for disagreeing with them but there's meat eaters like you who do literally the exact same thing.

I don't have a problem with gmo produce but it seems to me to be a far bigger departure from what we usually eat then lab grown meat. They're not genetically changing the the meat as far as I understand it, they're just finding out ways to grow muscle tissue without all the extra baggage. Meanwhile we have crops being engineered to be resistant to highly toxic pesticides.

It's a religion and in every religion there are massively intolerant nut jobs. Don't get me wrong, I'm not condemning religion in general or Christianity specifically but considering there are some pretty strong anti gay feelings amoung certain groups of Christians, to say a Christian would never do something like this is pretty naive.

I think a big part of the problem you describe is modern media telling us things are way worse in the world than they are. Most people seem to think violent crime in the last 70 years has gone up in America when it has done almost nothing but gone down. Likewise, war in this world we live in? We live in one of the most peaceful periods in global history and yet modern media crams the few truly tragic events happening around the world down our throats like they are the norm.

You're ridiculous. You've just claimed resolution on a debate that didn't happen

This conversation has never been about neo-marxism but it has seem to have become whatever tangent you want to run to. You clearly can't defend Hillary as a Marxist because all you have done is attempted to change the subject or redefine certain conditions whenever I try to refocus the conversation on the initial issue of whether Hilary cant be properly called a "Marxist".

Given that her platform makes no effort to eliminate economic classes (which is absolutely key to Marxism) you know you don't have a leg to stand on so you keep running off on tangents.

Where do you get me calling Clinton and Sanders Marxist-Leninist or even just Marxist? You qoute me talking about how the term Marxism is used in modern parlance and then make up whatever you want. We're talking about another user who called Clinton Marxist. Part of my responce to your claims was that Marxism in the common parlance of our time typically refers to economic issues and not issues of race or gender issues as you described above. ...and then you're diving head first into the tangent that I didnt want to be dragged into and ignoring Marxisms relation to economics which was the point

Of course class was primarily defined by wealth and ones place in the capitalistic economic system so economic issues are key to his philosophies. The proletariat, the bourgeoisie; defined by their place in their current economic system. Of course he does branch off a bit be it's all based off this dominant theme.

You also fail to address the use of the term "Marxist" in modern parlance which is used overwhelmingly in an economic context.

As for your second part, I really have no desire to be drawn into a debate about Liberals being racist, classist or similiar nonsense when both of our parties clearly use ethnic identity and class to further their own gains but not nearly as much as some people like to claim.

Don't get me wrong Bernie is my favored candidate for the nomination but this "the system is rigged" stuff being blamed for Bernie's loss has got to go.

Sure, the Democratic nomination system could certainly be better but with Hillary ahead in the popular vote by over three million votes ( http://www.realclearpolitics.c... ) it's pretty clear she has the popular mandate. Not only did Bernie not get enough votes, he's so far behind that he was cleary not the prefered candidate for the voters. There shouldnt be any controversy here.
