    I got bored one day and literally typed in "Debate Politics" into Google, and lo and behold here I am.

    Re: How did you find Debate Politics?

    I got banned from another forum for sticking up for TacticalEvilDan after he got banned. Retarded forum owner was retarded. I found this place after Googling for political forums. All the other forums that came up were either too boring, too wingnutty or had way too strict moderation. DP was just right and I eventually got TED to join too.

    1.) Its a repressive site if you are not "left enough" the restrict you.
    2.) People there are very ignorant and it seems they are just there because "its cool to be a communist/anarchist/socialist/Stalinist"
    3.) Talk about making some fantasy revolution any day now
    4.) Upsessed with USSR propaganda.

    He-he! I remember all that stuff from my days with the CPB(M-L) as a student. We were highly vanguardist, admiring of Mao and the Great Leap Forward and spent most of our time selling newspapers outside the gates of the last few remaining shipyards on the Tyne.

    I think I might swing by there now, just for nostalgia's sake. Do people still believe the revolution is imminent?

    Ohh is the CPB(m-L) the party that upholds Stalin as almost god like status and has a sister organization the Stalin society?

    And anyways well some people do.... Its kinda sad, because its being proven that we can change things more peacefully now through the ballot box as Castro said that violent revolutions are almost obsolete because we can now do it by the ballot box.

    Yup, that's them, still in thrall posthumously to their great leader, Reg Birch.

    In theory, although I can't say I can think of a single autocratic regime being ousted by votes alone. Can you? I remain convinced that a revolution of some description will be required to overthrow corporatist capitalism, I just can't see it happening anytime very soon.

    Nice nice.
    Remember seeing some Stalin Society lectures, i must say they are interesting.

    No not in total. But many countries in South America, and parts of Europe and Asia are making huge strides through the ballot box.

    I remain convinced that a revolution of some description will be required to overthrow corporatist capitalism, I just can't see it happening anytime very soon.
    I agree that some countries will have to lead an armed revolution but i do not see in succeeding and working anytime soon.
