(32,572 posts)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.

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.

(32,572 posts)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!

And thanks also for the post in DU, which made it easy for me to find.
