  • As in traditional Marxism, there was a teleological element to [Mike]'s socialism, but it was no longer (if it had ever really been) based on his acceptance of some iron law about the falling rate of profit or the like. It was instead closely related to the outsider's stance that he had chosen for his own cultural orientation. His youthful bohemianism was not shaped by a desire to shock or deride his elders or mainstream culture. Rather, he assumed that what most people wanted, and lacked even in the "affluent society" of the 1950s and early 1960s, was some version of what he had already achieved in his personal life - that is, the power of self-definition. Socialism would come - not in his lifetime perhaps, but someday and inevitably - as people awakened to the claims of moral solidari...

  • GOING TO EXTREMES The ultra-conservative right wing gets great pleasure from pointing out that the left wing, or Democrats, when carried to the extreme, are socialists. As we see the Republicans getting more and more extreme, what is not mentioned is that the definition of ultra right is fascism. While we have seen the evidence of creeping socialism readily pointed out to us, you don't hear mention of the creeping fascism.

  • MASON CITY - A billboard in Mason City that feature a definition of socialism accompanied by the phrase "Obama-nation" is drawing complaints. Mark Tlusty, of Rockford, spent about $400 to display the sign for a month. He represents a group called Concerned Citizens and helped organize an April anti-tax protest in

  • Socialist war cry To war cries such as "Remember the Alamo" Republicans have added, "Socialism, socialism, socialism." It started with the presidential campaign and continues on talk shows, by right-wing columnists and by the Press-Telegram's usual set of letter writers. Aside from the fact almost none of them understand the definition of socialism, we are experiencing the legacy of Bush and trickle-down economics since Reagan.

  • The definition of democratic socialism is: The people in power (that is, the president and Congress) use every emergency, both natural and contrived, to increase taxing, borrowing and spending under the pretense of solving the emergency. Does this sound familiar?

  • [...]Federico Fuentes has collaborated with Marta Fiarnecker and written much insightful analysis of Venezuela's Bolivarian process and developments in Bolivia.

  • Editor, the Tribune: My views on the new smoking ban: I do not live in Columbia, but live nearby and visit often. I am a smoker, but I always respected nonsmokers and did not smoke in their space. It's just too bad that Columbia's nonsmokers do not respect smokers. It is a very simple explanation, not just in Columbia, but nationwide. Look at the definition of socialism from Webster's: Any of various economic and political theories advocating collective or governmental ownership and administration of the means of production and distribution of goods;

  • It is a cardinal mistake in any competition, be it sports or politics - and politics is a competition of ideas - to underestimate your opponent. All too often, underestimating your opponent leads to disaster. I believe that America, especially America's political class, is vastly underestimating President Obama; and if we continue to do so, it will be a disaster for America. Specifically, I am worried about the growing political story line that the Obama administration is "failing" because they are just inexperienced and the president is simply "in over his head. It is true that Mr. Obama never held an executive position in his life prior to being elected to the presidency. It is true that Mr. Obama had only three years (2005-2008) in the U.S. Senate prior to going to the White House, ...

  • We can always count on international socialists to give prizes and awards to those who best help prop up their illusions. And the latest and biggest illusion of all, arriving on the scene out of nowhere, is our mysterious cult-like figure of a president who has been on the stage about five minutes. Karl Marx wrote that the definition of peace is the absence of all opposition to all socialism. If this is the socialist/Marxist standard, then President Barack Obama's efforts must be thought of as simply mediocre by this group of communist arch-criminals. No wonder the left has started decrying Obama receiving this silly, worthless award.

  • The Solyndra scandal could be just the first glint of the sun over the horizon. The notorious California-based solar-panel manufacturer, Solyndra received $535 million in federal loan guarantees. Then it went bankrupt and was raided by the FBI. The House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, chaired by Rep. Darrell Issa, R- Calif., is investigating what he calls "political interference" by the White House in getting the loans even as Solyndra teetered toward bankruptcy.

    ... almost any reasonable and mainstream definition of socialism. McClintock said that, of the $3.5 ...
