Re: I told you leftists are dangerous people.

Armchair Pundit, Did you understand what my point was?... I doubt it... Oh, I do. Reading the sum total of your posts over the years, here and days of yore, (Albatroz among others, wasn't it?), I am not sure you understand the consequences of your religion,no matter the intention. I do enjoy your f...

Re: The 1938 Munich appeasement syndrome.

Appeasement? Peace is only possible when peoples/countries respect each other. In 1938 the British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain showed respect for Germany and its leader Adolf Hitler by accepting Hitler's world that the Third Reich harbours no further territorial ambitions past the incorporat...

Re: Weeks before lockdown, Wuhan authorities used 'refrigerating strategy’ to downplay coronavirus

And here's your cover-up... As Chinese authorities widened a massive urban lockdown and flew large numbers of medical personnel to Wuhan, the epicentre of a new SARS-like virus, medical authorities provided new indications that weeks of inaction had allowed the virus to spread widely before serious...

Re: I told you leftists are dangerous people.

So far, nobody has succeeded in creating a successful system based on Socialist values. I believe it is impossible because it violates human nature. We are genetically program to help ourselves and those who share our genes - like our own kids. Socialism requires us to be altruistic to others who d...

Re: China's Coronavirus is Much Worse Than You Think

The main problem of this virus is not mortality, it is the panic it may cause, and the inability of health facilities to cope with such panic. Yes, do take some precautions, but mostly stay calm...

Re: I told you leftists are dangerous people.

Cass, Socialism is an idea, a set of values, not a system. The system is what you use to put that idea and those values into practice, and the chosen system has often failed. But that doesn't mean the idea is wrong. You only have to find a way to put it into practice without violating some other ess...

Re: Understanding Russia

Most Europeans are peace loving people but not pacifists. If attacked, we would defend ourselves. Even a small country like Portugal is willing to send trops to, for instance, the Central African Republic, in a UN peace keeping mission, where they have been involved in combat actions against rebels...

Re: Understanding Russia

Europe does not wish to wield that type of power, which is only used in an aggressive manner. We wish to influence ME countries in a manner which may encourage them to seek peace. How? It is true that some Europeans until 1945 acted in the same violent manner the US is now doing. But most of us wer...
