    It's almost like every several years a new group graduates there (if you will).
    Of course visiting and keeping updated over there is quite understandable...
    But there comes a time to move up a notch in one's independent think/speech.

    In many ways this platform (TOT) can help and abide for that transition easily.

    And if there's truly is a new emergence of and for a united/peaceful alternative
    forum community, then The One Truth and its sister Eye-Rise can help facilitate
    in providing a safe and secure place to post and share openly in your journey...

    My membership here is literally proof of that kind of personal transition and freedom.

    Hi Daozen,

    Left wing fanaticism is a bit of misnomer in my estimation...a left wing fanatic wants a chicken in everyone's pot...Honestly, that doesn't exactly make me shiver in my boots...
    Right wing fanaticism wants an other in every pot...Preferably a big iron one somewhere in Africa...Is there a difference?

    To be honest, the socialists here in Belgium would rather have a foot in every door and a hand in every pocket. Apart from that, they're just as neoliberal as the neoliberals themselves.

    A chicken in every pot after they've enslaved everyone, or sent everyone to camps, or got everyone on a control grid, or forced us to use particular language. Sure, then we can have our chicken. hahaha. Stalin was authoritarian left wing, I guess..... I'm not really into politics. I just noticed "Obama will save us" was as toxic in 07 as Trump-on-a-horse in '16. The only constant is wilful delusionals clinging to a pendulum. But I guess it's their business. The past month has told me they won't listen. I just won't engage them any more. So good luck to them.

    Excellent move, Dao, if they are as constant as you describe, they should be ignored...

    This discussion remind me of an old joke about building socialism:

    Stalin is driving the steam train of the Soviet Union towards a bright socialist future.

    Everyone's really excited, but the train starts slowing down as it's running out of fuel.

    The people are really confused as to what to do about it as there's nothing left to burn to keep the train moving. They ask Stalin for advice.

    - Gather together all your money and throw it into the furnace.

    They take his advice and the trains starts moving again. Shortly thereafter, it starts slowing again, so they ask him what to do.

    - Gather together all your clothes and throw it into the furnace.

    They do so and the train starts moving again.

    Shortly thereafter, it starts slowing down again, so they ask Stalin what to do.

    - Gather together all the food you have and throw it into the furnace.

    Once again, they take his advice and the train moves again, with all the food that's being burnt.

    Then the train starts slowing again and comes to a complete stop. The people ask Stalin what they should do now:

    - We have no clothes, no food, no money, we are cold, hungry, penniless and the train of the Soviet Union has stalled. When will we arrive in the bright socialist future you've promised?

    - You just have. This is it.

    And for the record, there were elections over here in Belgium now about seven weeks ago, and here in the Flanders, they were a standing victory for the far-right and ultra-far-right. Maybe that doesn't worry you, but it does worry me, because I have to live here, and this country was already very authoritarian from even before the last elections.
    Hi, Dear Aragorn,

    I concur with your concerns here, re elections. We will be facing similar in Canada, in October. The only saving grace is the 'Conservative' leader resembles a chubby squirrel spaced out on Ecstasy. And he is about as charismatic as same.

    We have an apallingly stupid 'liberal' leader in Trudeau. He's garden variety corrupt and a dumb f'g pretty boy, otherwise the Cons wouldn't stand a chance. Yikes. Provinces are going conservative too.

    The federal socialist party, NDP is led by a Sikh pretty boy, as well. Super sexy in a turban, but dumb as a rock, politically -- and a hyper manipulative type, too. And socialists in Canada can be truly scary. I say that as a democratic Socialist myself, in my heart. But you can't be a Socialist and an economic fool at the same time. It won't work that way!

    The hard right are no antidote to current very valid concerns of those among them who feel disenfranchised. This IS very like Hitler Germany, in the early years of his power, in the U.S. Similar happening globally. The elites are entrenching their power with the help of those who are anti-elite. How freaking ironic.
