    Your question is a form of the Argument by Authority, a logical error. It presumes that the courts are infallible, something demonstrably false. The courts haven't ruled the unconstitutional excesses invalid because the court is a political body.

    Welcome to the real world.

    Exactly. That's why there *must* be AA: In order to balance the existing racism against blacks.
    Wrong.

    Being racist is not the means to end racism.

    Violating the rights of one set of individuals because another group had suffered opression in the past.

    Welcome to the real world, where today's white people aren't responsible for the actions yeserday's white people committed.

    That's your opinion, and you are entitled to it. But you have no right to smear those who disagree -- with good arguments -- as "racists" or authoritarians.
    Again, the Mayor refers you to the First Amendment. And telling the truth is never a "smear".


    The difference is that this party assumed blacks can't do that, because they're racially inferior. I argue they can't, because they are disadvantaged by white racism against blacks. The former is racism, the latter is the opposite.
    That's racism without direct reference. The Mayor has known far too many blacks (and why did you select just one particular minority) who are succesful and self-reliant to buy into the nonsensical The Man is Holding The Brothers Down theory.

    Socialism will cease being a violent ideology when it stops using the machines guns of government to enforce the laws it uses to enslave the people.

    Just in case you haven't noticed, a nation's tax laws are um....laws, and every nation uses police to enforce it's..um..laws, and those cops have guns, often machine guns.

    When the socialist stop demaning illegal programs funded by taxes taken under threat of violence and imprisonment from people who do not agree with the socialist policies, then you can start claiming socialsim is non-violent.

    In the meantime, socialism has over 150,000,000 bodies to explain away.

    Good luck with that.

    You have totally missed the point. The nazi ideology by nature is evil because it preaches violence to achieve its stated goal of ethnic purity. It discriminates man by birth right and is therefore a horrible and inexcusable ideology.

    Socialism is not inherintly evil, as in it does not require the violence and opression many socialist leaders decide to use to achieve it's stated goal. Socialism can work better within democratic confines, violence is not an ideological prerequsite for it to work.

    Although the Mao's and Stalins of this world may have made socialism appear to be inherintly destructive and evil, it is not and cannot be comparable to Nazism in anyway.

    Re: Should Socialism - Communism be condemned like Nazim?

    The Nazis were a Socialist / Fascist / Corporatist (depending on who you talk to) government with strong political beliefs that included antisemitism. You can have dictators with extremist followers in any type of government. Just look at the news coming from the countries in the middle east who Democratically elected their leaders. Democracy is not to be blamed for the killings and suppression... only those in charge are to be blamed. So too are Hitler and his followers to be blamed for the murder of millions and the massive war, not their Socialist political system at the time. Most government types are not inherently bad... but bad people can come to power and cause pain and suffering for those they rule over. So no, Socialism and Communism should not be compared to the Nazi belief system.


    And lets not forget that Hitler and his followers SEIZED power at the time. That is NOT what Socialism is about.

    The National Socialist idea was evil by nature because it was a form of socialism. The details of the perversion merely accented that initial flaw.

    Socialism robs every man who produces more than his neighbors, and that's as evil as evil gets.

    The term "socialism" in National Socialism is to be used very loosely to describe some of the idea's on the economy by Hitler that shared some similarities with other socialist movements, like being fundamentally against international finance capitalism and providing extensive welfare programmes for the worker.

    Other than that typical socialism or communism as we define it share nothing in common with National Socialism, because national socialism was commanded by the principles of fascism, biological supremacy, imperialism and anti-semetism and is generally classed as being far right which is argueably the anti-thesis of how we define a typical socialist.

    Socialism robs every man who produces more than his neighbors, and that's as evil as evil gets.
    Not neccessarily.


    and that's as evil as evil gets.
    Then you have no idea what evil is.

    And that must be why Hitler imprisoned Marxist.

    ...The Jewish doctrine of Marxism rejects the aristocratic principle of Nature and replaces the eternal privilege of power and strength by the mass of numbers and their dead weight. Thus it denies the value of personality in man, contests the significance of nationality and race, and thereby withdraws from humanity the premise of its existence and its culture. As a foundation of the universe, this doctrine would bring about the end of any order intellectually conceivable to man. And as, in this greatest of all recognizable organisms, the result of an application of such a law could only be chaos, on earth it could only be destruction for the inhabitants of this planet.

    I'm not inclined to let my guard down vs socialism. Answer why there's been so many dictators and deaths.

    Think I think it can't happen again? The concepts haven't lead to death?

    Perplexing it is to see convoluted reasoning.

    Socialism does not lead to dictatorship, people do.

    You think one day youll wake up and it'll be just like soviet Russia...

    Well my friend, its not quite that simple, and if ou knew anything about history you'd see that, pol pot, Lenin, Mou... They all came to power in civil wars and replaced already totalitarian regimes...

    It wasn't that they got elected and went BOOM socialism!
