some some ranting to myself

Soms wanhoop ik van mijn medeAmerikanen, schijnen zij in slaap te zijn bij het wiel als politieke juistheid en de partisian gebaseerde haat duwt ons steeds dichter aan een totale analyse van de basislijm die de maatschappij samen houdt.

Ik weet niet of is er nog tijd om dit langzaam maar bepaalde afdaling in sectarische anarchy en facism/socialism te stoppen; maar ik weet dat als niets wordt gedaan, dat is waar wij worden geleid.

De enige cursus ik kan zien proberen om het proces minstens te vertragen is voor iedereen aan staprug en reasses waar wij en zijn proberen om te bepalen enkel waarom whe wat geloven wij en om brutaal eerlijk te zijn over het in het proces blieve.

Thank you for your indulgence, and in case I should happen to have any Dutch readers, I apologize for my grammer, I'm seriously out of practice.

As I used to entertain my friends when I traveled to The Netherlands, here is my Dutch impression:

cjgdaakjkdaaacbkkjjjaaage. This can be done orally by just clearing your throught for an extended period of time. To an English speaker that is the sound of the Dutch language.

Yes a lot of Americans have their heads up their asses, Dennis Kucinich readily comes to mind. Rant on all you like Delfts.

I can't comment on your grammar but the conflation of Socialism and Fascisim doesn't make any more sense in Dutch than it does in English.

"..the conflation of Socialism and Fascisim doesn't make any more sense in Dutch than it does in English."

Karlo, maybe to you, thats true. The fact is that Facism and Socialism are two faces of the same coin. The rhetoric may differ, but the end results and goals are the same.

Fascism is the idolization of the state with everything subsumed under its mantle in order to advance the cause of a particular people. Socialism, as originally conceived, has as its ultimate goal the complete dismantlement of the state and is completely indifferent to the unique identity of peoples or cultures. I fail to see how these are similar. Is it any accident that some of the first people Saddam went after were Communists? Or that the Nazis slaughtered the Communist even before turning their attention to the Jews and other groups?

"Socialism, as originally conceived, has as its ultimate goal the complete dismantlement of the state"

Your talking the difference between the utopian ideal versus the practical REAL WORLD results Karlo.
Pretty funny that in every case where it has been attempted, in all it's various forms, Socialism has resulted in the State accruing all power unto itself, and ends up pretty much identical to a facist state in it's treatment of the populace. Remember that the Nazi Party were the Democratic SOCIALIST's. They despised Communists because they considered the arguments of the Eclectic Dialetic of the Workers to be an undisciplined form, interfering with the true goal of the great State. In the end though, as I have said, the end results are the same.

The Israeli Kibbutz system was problem one of the more truly Marxist experiments in Socialism. As for the results being the same, any time you have nationalism (as in Germany, the USSR, or the U.S.), the results seem to be pretty much the same (great power rivalries) and socialism, Western liberalism or other -isms don't seem to have much to do with anything. Realism is all that matters in these cases.
