Flat Earth?

| February 5, 2018

There are people who today believe that the Sun rotates around the Earth.   The flat earth society today has about the same relevance as Trotskyism, but it does exist.   However, science was not always accepted and Galileo fought a battle with the Catholic Church over this concept.  To most right wingers and also “liberals” who […]

Freedom, Liberalism and Democracy

| January 8, 2018

Based off of Mao’s interpretation of Dialectical Materialism (Friedrich Engels originally promoted the concept), one could say that when a certain amount of force is applied to a peddle the bicycle moves forward if there is no force in the opposite direction.   The bicycle then moves backwards if force is applied in the opposite […]

Every time we go to war, individual […]

Gender: Liberalism vs. Socialism
