Yawn . Really butthurt, I can tell. I'm so butthurt... so butt hurt I reintepret an article from Stanford to make Social Democracy not a form of Socialism. I am not really bothered by your malice because your childish outbursts earlier made me stop taking you seriously. What does bother me is that ...

Haden't realised you'd written another post. https://plato.stanford.edu/entries/socialism/ "Socialism is a rich tradition of political thought and practice, the history of which contains a vast number of views and theories, often differing in many of their conceptual, empirical, and normative ...

Oof, you shot yourself in the foot, because, oh look: It doesn't matter to my point if a different part of the article now says it. The point is that such edits yield you uncertain grounds, because it is a matter in dispute. Course they can, I'm sure a doctor of philosophy would have difficulty gra...

Can the title change? Annualised fall of 32.9%, this quarter I believe fell by 10%. Otherwise it sounds like 32% of US economy just vanished - which isn’t true. But panic is more interesting. Panic panic panic. Open the economy full steam we cant have/13 the economy disappearing. Knock knock. It’s ...

That doesn't change the fact that social democracy is capitalist with capitalist foundations.

You just advocate for Social Democracy - That's all you can do at an individual level, though the US is more likely to accept Christian Democracy (which has deep roots in a social-market economy) such as the American Solidarity Party. Social Democracies have higher economic freedoms, hi...

Iceland - Significant portion of parliament advocates Social Democracy. There’s a reason they aren’t in power in Althing anymore, their policies amplified the 2008 economic crash that really botched up the country for years. That’s one of the reasons people who grew up under those conditions are no...

Interesting, I know very little of the Council of Florence, other than it was utter Hypocrisy to call for unity while Catholicism was split so neatly, on the whole, couldn't "pick a pope" so to speak. It was about the conflict between the Conciliar movement and the principle of papal supr...

You have a president who said a dementia test was "very hard". So I think it's a pretty accurate thing to think for at least 50% of the population. That makes no sense, it just seems another example of the overused trope of "America dumb me smart" Why doesn't it make sense? Pres...

But if you delay the election your also talking about the prospect of their being no congress since its also being chosen on that date not to mention many state legislatures and several states will be closing statewide officials.
