According to the UK Telegraph there has been money approved for psychiatric care for violent religious fanatics. This money is a good start but would be betterthink of spent on providing mental health care for members of the SWP.
The folks across the pond never quite get around to the reality impaired anti-semitic and anti American communists who stoke and rationalize this homicidal violence. Moreover, if one is merely advocating class butchery or rationalizing treason or class genocide this must be acceptable. Then again if one thinks of Trotsky as some type of secular Christ figure you should be on meds of some type.
My family just came back from Russia. I am glad that I did not join them on tour. They were told that 27,000,000 died in ww2 and that they won the war. The 27 million figure includes 1,500,000 Jews who died in the Holocaust and who commies continue to abuse. This figure also includes those butchered by Stalin. Moreover, these reality that Commies and Nazis were allies
just never sinks in. The reality that this number also includes Hiwis who enlisted in the Nazi cause largely because of the brutality of Lenin, Trotsky and Stalin also gets forgotten as these same Hiwis and POWs were all butchered after the war and lumped into that oft cited number.
The fact that the USA and the UK had to resupply the commies is also lost. Moreover, the USA and the UK also had to deal with Japan with almost zero elp from the commies until that was decided and even then the commies stole real estate.
My family brought back a T-shirt with the hammer and sickle. I intend to burn it at the first available moment. I would have liked to visited to piss on Lenin's Tomb. However, pissing on long dead meglomaniacs is not quite as fun as pissing on their brain impaired apologists. Of course this Disneyfied tour did not include a trip to the Lubyanka prison where commies practiced butchery or a trip to the Gulags.
My family's discussion of the semi barbaric customs procedures was quite vivid. It would seem that Russia has not lost its authoritarian brutality. Unlike Israel that has been at war for 60's years Russian visitors have to present their passport and itinerary at every stop. It would seem that of Communism is not entirely dead and the present government has opted for some sort of Chinese compromise.
Onto more recent news.
I am perplexed how every useless social science major assumes they can work in government.
Reading Marx, Menchu, Chomsky and Fannon does not prepare one to flip burgers. Moreover, if one has been spoonfed those authors by the Old Bolshevik Network of psycho professors their
view of duty and professionalism is seriously compromised. Moreover, with one notable exception far left types are a serious liability at work and are either incompetant or are law suit whores. Two men talking about car parts or power tools does not constitute a hostile work attmospere and the person bringing that complaint should be in some sort of therapy.
