QuoteQuote from: Cassia on Today at 10:47:49 AMMarxist professors do pretty well under capitalism as they send out their converts bursting with student loans and degrees that qualify them to work the Wendy's takeout window. They just know they deserve a better position; I am sure
QuoteSo what if THEY do well under Capitalism, sure people in first-world nations, the individuals who aren't homeless or in poverty that is, have better qualities of life, but look at the people in third-world nations that are exploited by the first-world Imperialist superpowers and how they live in slums, starve, and don't have access to drinking water.

Quote from: the_antithesis on January 27, 2022, 12:37:14 PMTo yourself, dear, and how poorly you're making your case. Because you aren't even trying to change your tact. You're only hammering on the same fucking, boring, fruitless points over and over again. And you don't even allow the thought that it might be you and you should change.You're externalizing blame. Congratulations.You are a theist.
Quote from: ProletarianBanner on January 27, 2022, 12:53:15 PMNope, I'm not a theist... That doesn't make me a theist dipstick. I don't participate in any religion, I don't believe in a holy deity...
Quote from: Hydra009 on January 27, 2022, 01:56:13 PMWell, religions often operate with a founder who alone received special knowledge/enlightenment - as if he received it from on high - and founded a glorious religious movement destined to change the world. Next is a sort of messiah figure who will cast down evil and lead the chosen people to a glorious new future without strife or hardship. This messiah figure may be the object of a cult of personality - adherents plaster his face everywhere, exaggerate his good qualities to ridiculous levels, and deny his bad qualities, usually portraying them as lies from their ideological enemies. Adherents usually have a holy text that they recite with little/no independent reasoning. Adherents also believe that one day, their religion will conquer the world, forever defeating/dominating its competition. Remind you of anything?
Quote from: ProletarianBanner on January 27, 2022, 01:59:25 PMListen bud, an ideology or socio-economic system is not the same as a religion.
Quote from: ProletarianBanner on January 27, 2022, 02:02:43 PMYou all just develop cults of personality around your little billionaires who don't earn their wealth and gain it through the exploitation of the labour of others.
Quote from: Hydra009 on January 27, 2022, 02:06:40 PM Oh man, that was a good one! If only you knew who I voted for in the primaries!
Quote from: ProletarianBanner on January 27, 2022, 02:12:48 PMOh please, spare me your humour.
Quote from: Mike Cl on January 27, 2022, 03:35:56 PMThis is your problem on this board. You paint all of us with the same broad strokes, putting ideologies, thoughts and opinion into our mouths without knowing what it is we think. You insist I love capitalism without knowing the first thing about what I think. You don't discuss your thoughts nor how/why you developed them. You simply make pronouncements and expect us to agree with them. What do you have against discussion?
