I believe an ever expanding scope of government meddling lives is a recipe for horror. You disagree.

Talk about changing when it suits you.

The declension has ended up at "meddling in lives" from "an ever expanding roll in providing for us".

Meddling in lives has a pretty broad range of application.

I think you sound like the new lefties excusing away horrors of the Soviet Union.

How? How!?

All I am doing is saying that Stalinism required more than mere socialism to happen.

Once again, it's all about CONTEXT. A bit of inefficiency in America, while not wanted or beneficial, is NOT going to cause gulags to spring up. It just isn't.

However, as has been amply demonstrated by recent happenings, very real echoes of totalitarianism can appear with narry a link to socialism whatsoever.

You think I sound like some fascist enabling dolt.

No I don't. I think you sound like a hysteric.

Like I said... there isn't much point to our discussions.

All subjective of course, but as long as you keep peddling histrionic nonsense with a few novel twists in relation to this matter, I feel there's a point in at least replying.
