are you willfully ignorant or are you merely propagating ignorance. I’m leaning on the latter.

Why would be an interesting dive.

It's the Soviet Union, the Cold War, Cuba, Venezuela...Boomers can't get past that, especially early Boomers who were old enough to know what was going on when it was going on. Communism. The Red Scare. McCarthyism. Stalin and WW2...Marxist dictators destroyed Marxism but folks in the know, know that if there is a dictator involved it cannot be Marxism. But the indoctrination is in place and cannot be over-ridden with facts and truth.

But all that is fading from memory and a new model has arisen. A successful model. A model for future socialists to work towards. We may have lost a battle here but the war is far from over.

Good coffee, good weed, and time on my hands...
