    No, I'm MOSTLY interested in telling you that you don't have the slightest idea of what you're talking about.

    You are also probably not aware that Russian communists helped us defeat Hitler.

    Regarding the Manifesto, I suggest you waddle down to your friendly neighborhood public library, if you can find it, and check out a copy. You will find an introduction and four chapters, including a set of 25 principles. No "10 planks".

    P.S. The "red scare" years were the early to mid 1950s. Your 1963 "Warning" was pretty much out of date as soon as it was published.

    Looks like right wing christian fascism is a bigger threat and currently has rhe american constitution in a death grip. You live in a liberal democracy but for how much longer?

    Somewhat off the subject of the thread, but I do not see the death grip.

    Maybe you could be more specific, or even start a new thread.

    Sometimes across the ocean from American politics is not the best vantage point.

    Obama was not one of our best presidents and certainly not one of our worst.

    Trump is very likely to destroy the Republican party, at least temporarily.

    The Constitution will survive in any case.

    Like I said, you seem more interested in defending communism. The Russians wanted to JOIN Hitler and he rejected them. Secondly, Stalin murdered as many people as Hitler. You don't know what YOU are talking about. Know your history. Stop defending evil. As a Communist defender, you would think that you would know the things on this list. The "Red Scare" was obviously well founded because it's happening today via the Democrats. Socialism is just a stepping stone for full blown infection of Communism.

    You have shown how little you know about much.

    baggins, like his fairytale user name, is out of touch with reality. I am certainly not going to waste any more time trying to put him in touch.

    I am a lifelong socialist, my parents received "The People" newspaper in the mail every week (this was in the 1940s-50s) and I devoured it as soon as I was able to read. Sorry to hear that the paper shut down not long ago, it was always a great read.

    One of the nicest things about my years teaching English in Germany was that I could say that I was a socialist without people like baggins looking at me funny.

    He will no doubt continue to inhabit his fairytale world, God help him.

    Socialism=Communism lite. FACT: Capitalism built all of the economic giants of the world. Socialism and Communism fails in every Country it is tried.

    Interestingly, and this is not addressed to the dude from fairyland, it's REALLY possible, tho' perhaps not likely, that our next ELECTED prez could be a Socialist, and of course I'm referring to Bernie Sanders.

    Trump is very likely to be impeached (and possibly even imprisoned) SOON, VP Whats-his-face will succeed him for the remainder of the term, by 2020 the country will be ready - more than ready - for a BIG change, and Bernie's mah man.

    Most successful capitalists nations have a lot of Socialism in their structure.
    Communism has never been successful on a large scale.
    Even the Soviet Union was never a Communist nation.

    And unregulated Capitalism has almost always ended poorly.
