How do you do that?

On edit: so is mine. How'd I do that? And why do I still need to use HTML for formatting?

Xemasab's poll on DU2 says there are a lot more socialists around. Maybe we could get some more traffic in here.

and broke it down by types of socialism. There is a lot of variety - including quite a few folks who'd like to see the type of mixed economies the Scandinavian countries have developed. I hope when this group goes live it will have reading submissions so folks can learn some of the theory. We've been inundated with so much anti-red propaganda in this country that just being able to define "socialist" accurately is a challenge for many Americans.

I'm looking forward to talking with you all and learning more. Hopefully we can have some in depth discussion on theory in this forum.

This actually could be fun. Although I will miss agitating and advocating for Marxist positions on the more general boards.

maybe the both of us are. LOL

I had Red Rosa as my atavar on d2, but can't locate her in 3. I miss her! Not that she was exactly a Leninist, but she was a good friend to them and a helluva fighter.

but none I wish to name from this long distance in time. Family, age, health, time, and other stuff intervened. What a long strange trip it's been. But exceedingly gratifying.

The fire is gone now, but not the sentiment. I'm quite isolated and DU has become my little eye on the world - there are many good people here and I get news. And occasionally meet a kindred spirit, but not often a Leninist. People have no notion how he dissected imperialism, and how much of what he wrote is still relevant and useful.

I think I'm going to dust off my Collected Works and reread a bit, now.

Look up to the blue line from here and click on "socialist progressives (group)" and I think that will put you in the right place. Glad you found us!
