    About "So why won't you tell us what slave nation shithole to America you live in?", you seem to think America is a great place to live despite America's education that makes you a debt slave, a healthcare system that bankrupts you, roads and more that are awful - not to mention that lack of high speed rail. In Spain, I road a train going 185 mi/hr, and American trains are lucky to do 100 mi/hr. And Americans think of Spain as a "sort-of developed country."

    I could go on, but what is the point. America is not the paradise you think it is!

    Well, there is no amount of evidence that will convince some as they continue to think Marx "was a pig who advocated a totalitarian dictatorship." Yet, somehow the people who hold such views never ask themselves, "Gee, if Marx was so awful, why do economists all over the world still talk about his ideas and what he wrote some 150 years after he wrote his major work "Capital: Critique of Political Economy!"

    The problem here is, these people have swallowed - hook, line and sinker - the propaganda from the rich who want continue to exploit the mass of people and the planet.

    About "Venezuela malaria cases jump by 69 percent", and America does nothing to help! That is because the people who run America - the rich - want to make sure any socialism on the planet is discredited, and they are willing to let people suffer and die to make sure they maintain their control.

    You have failed to offer or citre such evidence instead the evidence proves IRRFUTABELY that he advocated totalitarianism.

    ANd yes he was a pig.

    Some ( very few ) economists cite his ideas because they are fools and nothing more.

    The propaganda is coming from the marxist professors who dominate schools not from the rich who need no such propaganda.

    Where do you actually live? Where do you live or have visited for any length of time that you claim is much better.

    It is not a failure of socialism, but a failure of government. Not socialists' fault, government is a form of socialism.

    You simply don't understand socialism. Special pleading was only good, to keep it simple for the right wing, during the Cold War.

    I'm positive I understand Socialism far better than you do.

    If you really understood, you'd know better.
