Today's Buggy Topic Is, As Usual,
Found at Economist's View, where the chronic posters ---about 8 or 9 --- post dozens of times a day a variety of ideologically left-wing comments, most of which are little more than strings of assertions and counter-assertions, bereft of evidence and full of a mix of Marxist slogans, pc-pieties, mirage-laden hopes, and attacks on anyone who dares challenge the guard-dogs of shared groupthink.
In this shared groupthink, President Obama, you have to understand, hasn't just been a raw crackling disappointment, he's sold out to the financial and business OLIGARCHY in control of both our economy and political system. Similarly, Israel looms as a neo-Nazi state; American foreign policy is driven by the industrial-military complex and a war-crazed public; and the working classes in the US are the victims of nasty exploitation that has left them near-destitute and unable to break through the media-driven false-consciousness so beloved of Marxists . . . including the opium of the masses, religion.
Small Wonder Then
That a whole thread at Economist's View was devoted to earlier this week to the need for Utopian thinking, which needless to say was of a Marxist sort , supposedly driven by a pragmatic transition informed --- you understand, by the "best" social science --- to bring about the transformation of the average American's alleged egocentric individualism, the lack of empathy for the supposed victims of structural capitalism, cultural racism, homophobia, and misogyny, and tight-fisted government programs intended, it appears, as little more than fodder for the bread-and-circus controls of the downtrodden American masses.
