Re: in Venezuela, WHAT Revolution? They only have ongoing tradition down there.

Thanks for your dignified and reasoned reply Cass. I concede that when I last posted I was in a shitty mood. If they are born blind or become disabled in an accident and cannot work, I am for helping with taxpayers' money. But they should still do what they can, even if disabled. Good! When given h...

Human abilities differ, often considerably, from one individual to another as do needs. It follows from that, therefore, that Marx sanctioned inequal...

Re: in Venezuela, WHAT Revolution? They only have ongoing tradition down there.

. I did not blame Socialism for corruption. Then why do you keep on harping on the matter of Chavez' daughter's billions? Because Socialists claim to be for equality of wealth and for the poor. This makes leftist wealth accumulation more hypocritical and egregious. At the end of the day, politician...

Re: in Venezuela, WHAT Revolution? They only have ongoing tradition down there.

Hypocritical and egregious ? Where do you get the funny impression from that socialism means equality of wealth? Do a search for "inequality" and see who bangs on about it. Go ahead, we'll wait.

Re: Iran to replace US dollar with euro in financial reporting

Who bloody-well cares? It's a process. Slowly the dollar will stop being the currency of reference and the US will no longer be able to pay for its trade deficit by printing bits of paper. Which will mean that if the US wants to wage war, it will have to pay it with real money. I can't see how that...

Re: The Xi Silk Road is here to stay

George H Bush missed a golden opportunity after TianAnMen incident. He should have pressured China into becoming a democracy. The Chinese then were receptive to the idea. What, exactly, do you think he could have done? Trade sanctions would have sunk the CCP. China was weak at that time. Now China ...
