I'm just trying to explain to you why talking about past Soviet attrocities is meaningful in the context of today. How unhealed old traumas come back with enormous force again.
Both past Soviet attrocities and current Russian attrocities belong to Politics.

You clearly don't understand how trauma works. We're not discussing something abstract, we're discussing actual experiences of actual people close to WP members. So don't invalidate it for not being scholarly enough. Why do you find it wrong that people harmed by communism hate communism and people ...

I was making fun of the whole idea - of course no one even thought of being offended :D

Generally, even the concept of Blackface and why it was offensive was something foreign to me, something I had to learn in my adulthood when researching American culture.

Then make this a thread about the victims of all war crimes. Instead the thread hyperfocuses on German victims in WWII and their first post was this is a "tradition" by Russian soldiers as if they were t he only ones that were raped in WWII. Perhaps the thread should be renamed and the em...

Because it's about perspective. It`s impossible to talk about anything without seeing the time & space something occurred in. Like you can't talk about the bombing of Dresden without talking about the bombing of London What's the point in talking about Russian soldiers' behaviour in WW2 without...

In the US, "Third Way" is more of a centrist system. It refers to the Clinton-era Democrats, compared to the FDR-era party.

Neither had universal healthcare - which would render it not only non-centrist but practically non-considered in Europe.

I think it struggles with grasping a value of innovation, creativity and efficiency, so using it solo can easily lead to ridiculous effects. Yes it gets complicated. Those things could be about the production process or the individual worker. I'd need examples to ponder. I was having in mind creati...

I think labor theory of value can be considered as... maybe rather labor aspect of value? I mean, it can be a meaningful analysis to see actual labor put into producing various goods - but it's very limited when used separately. It does not obviously account to i.e. knowledge and talent, I think it ...
