    Karl Marx and followers of his economic philosophy, are single minded idealistic fools thinking with their hearts and not their heads.

    For more context on how we, collectively as a nation, view Marx and his methods. I'd recommend reading this:
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/McCarthyism

    It's changed more from "fear" to "ridicule". Heck even China and Russia, the two most prominent countries to ever have tried communism, have realized that it can not work or sustain itself in it's purest form.

    Mike: Wow - them's strong words indeed (I like anything written with passion)!! I'm going out on a limb here and my understanding could be entirely wrong, but I sense from your response that you also don't support Marxism! Only joking!!

    Don't get me wrong, I'm not a fundamentalist where Karl's work is involved: I find much of his writings to be interesting and notwithstanding your views - I reckon that there is value in some of his observations. That said, I agree that adopting Marx-Lenin thinking as the singular basis for establishing and governing a populous has its problems (as you correctly point-out in Russia's case).

    However and purely IMO, China is an entirely different and much-more interesting kettle-of-fish. Yes, it's technically a communist country, but it would be wrong to align today's China with Marxist principles. I'm sure you would agree that like the rest of the world, China learned much from the fall of the Berlin wall. I agree that China's economic reform and it's quasi embrace/integration of some aspects of capitalist principles (which are antithetical to Marxist thinking) make it "special". Time will tell if China's particular version of communism (an evolution of Das Kapital- perhaps?) will succeed - or not! My personal view is that China has more to fear from it's own citizens than it does from the threat of America's military machine (although I also fear that the centralist Government may use the latter to achieve support from the former - and if that happens, we can all kiss-our-collective-arses-goodby!!!).

    As for McCarthyism (and admittedly as a foreigner), I'm not sure the antics of the good Senator from Wisconsin says much at all about Marxism. IMO, the process used by Senator McCarthy (with the assistance of Roy Cohn) says more about how to use an ideology to further one's own ambitions, than it says about the economic/political writings of a 19th century Jewish Russian!!

    Absolutely he should have, right then and there, during the debate, for all the world to see.

    Nobody's perfect. Everyone makes mistakes and people respect it when you own up to them.

    Buttigieg and Klobuchar officially out. Surprised Buttigieg is dropping this early, he does have 26 pledged delegates.

    And DJT is now the youngest man left in the race.

    Tomorrow (Super Tuesday) is certainly going to be interesting.
