It is never wrong or out of turn for a liberal to say anything. Look around.

What I think he didn't fathom was the concept of the pendulum swinging BACK to democracy and free markets once HIS utopia crashes and burns.

when did his utopia do that

also by definition why would a utopia collapse

Once Stalin got his hands on it.

Yes yes Fiz, we get that theoretically once the proletariat grasps the concept of how much better a society of equals is, that no government, police force, or even military should be necessary.

All the garbage he espouses in the Manifesto.

But human nature led to the fall of, in this case, the USSR.

Government corruption is just a different kind of corruption than the corporate variant.

The communist dream is a joke, can't be achieved as long as human beings want more and crave power/money, and no amount of political indoctrination will EVER remove that.

Ergo, no communist system will last much longer than the evil plutocracy they despise so much that it replaced.

Bang, crunch, bang, crunch.

As to the Utopia collapse, I meant it as a Utopia for the adherents to the political philosophy, not those of us that believe it to be more likely just a different kind of hell. Therefore not a true Utopia, therefore still subject to destruction.

A slightly more miserable human condition than it's political opposite.

No one should want a president to fail, especially in critical times for the country's health. Luckily for James, he said that before 9/11, not after.

Actually, I believe he said it on 9/11 ... just before the attacks were reported.

Of course not, I'm not an idiot.

Don't you think that burg was a bit to Bible-y to be classified amongst the marxists?
