    US Debt increased $438 billion first 6 monts of FY06.

    Well, anyway, just seeing how you guys are doing. Pretty well, as you're over 2,000 members, though with only 500 active. Revleft has 7,000, but I don't know how many are active. And to any socialists/anarchists/communists here, I don't know how you can bear it. http://revleft.com

    US Debt increased $438 billion first 6 monts of FY06.

    Quite right. However, I think capitalism is probably on the decline in the advanced nations. So such developments are to be expected. China and Japan are currently financing the US debt. And what when they stop? Inevitably, as the Chinese capitalist economy continues to develop, this will...

    The death penalty is racist

    Are you guys still listening to this conservative bimbo? Just checking in on my old forum here. Although, I will contribute here: one's race has nothing to with anything. One's socioeconomic class, on the other hand, has much to do with it. You won't find a great number of extremely wealthy...

    the fallacy of communism

    Yes, yes, these are those nice little examples. But were these revolutions Marxist in nature? Any group can hold up banners, and claim a label for their revolution, but does this mean that these revolutions were Marxist? Of course not! The idea that any of the revolutions following the Russian...

    Socialist Democracy (Viva Revolution!)

    Yes, by the very definition of 'revisionist', you are a revisionist. A revolution that is of the people's will is a strong foundation indeed, and do not doubt the potential of violence as the people's means. Now, will the US see any revolution, as our young revolutionaries so boldly predict? No...

    the fallacy of communism

    Essentially what I am wondering is whether you feel socialism is a neccesary prerequisite to communism.

    the fallacy of communism

    Ah, using practical examples to disprove Marx's theories? And what 'attempts' do you refer to? Also, remember that any primitive society usually struggles to satisfy many wants. In spite of this, I argue that a form of primitive communism would satisfy needs and wants of modern peasants (of...

    Socialist Democracy (Viva Revolution!)

    The reason most true communists do not want 'democratic' elections is simply because a system cannot be abolished, but only changed, through such elections. Do you honestly think that if a communist were elected President of these United States he/she would be able to do away with capitalism? Of...

    the fallacy of communism

    Two questions for you, comrade: Are you a Leninist? How do you define communism?

    the fallacy of communism

    I'll let you know that I am a young (even though you may think less of me now that I reveal that detail) anarcho-communist. I realize the fallacies of socialism quite well (although in my opinion these fallacies are all political, not economic), and view it as unneccesary. That being said, I do...

    the fallacy of communism

    You shouldn't assume that I am a Marxist. If you've talked with Marxists before, you'd know that I'm quite at odds with most of them. Most true Marxists see socialism as a neccesary transitional stage. I, and many others, do not. Luckily, for this conversation anyway, I agree with the Marxist...

    the fallacy of communism

    The state represents polictical inequality, correct? So what good is it to simply eliminate economic inequality, and yet keep the state? The era of representation, as I like to say, must come to an end. To better continue this discussion, I think I need your definition of 'the state'. Simply...

    the fallacy of communism

    We'll see how it goes. But surely you can understand the frustration I feel when I argue against a point, and my counterpart ignores my argument and makes the same erroneous claim a second time (this has not happened with you, rather with others). You, however, seem rather bright, so we may be...

    the fallacy of communism

    No, A democratic socialist state is simply one with both democracy and socialism. It doesn't matter whether that particular socialist nation uses centralised or localised planning (although, for the reasons we've been discussing, I do hope they choose localised planning). Venezuela and Bolivia...
