    I'd love to hear your definition of a socialist state.

    This got ugly pretty quick, now didn't it. I believe that in the forum rules we are cautioned against political discussions. There is a difference between discussing the fact that King named his son after a certain socialist (I found it informative and I'm not bothered by it), and actually arguing about politics. Though I am annoyed when what I view as someone shoving something down my throat, occurs in their body of work, I am not against them having their opinions. When it has no basis in the story and does nothing to enhance the narrative, I begin to see it as propaganda rather than style. That said-I hope that this doesn't get any more heated. I would hate to see us all on double-super-secret probation!

    I am going to Bangor this summer for an SK tour and I'm trying to meet Stephen, so if I get super lucky and I do meet him, I will try my BEST to remember and print out this page and ask him some questions. If anyone has any cool things to do in the Bangor area PM me!

    My definition is a sate where free enterprise is either totally done away with, or allowed to exist in slight way, sorta like China has combined communism with capitalism. It's a state where someone who works his ass off and is considered in America to either be "rich" or "upper middle class", has most of his money stolen by the government to give to the so-called "poor" who do nothing but take and never give anything. It's also a state where private property is not permitted to exist (most of the time) and free speech, free press, etc are banned as in Canada, France, etc. Oh sure, they will allow some "free" speech, just as long as it supports the party line. No country is free when they can ban guns from private ownership, ban books, ban certain newspapers and ban movies. All countries in Europe do this as well as Canada. There's really not much difference in socialism/communism except socialists ususally don't murder millions of their own people.

    No, not really. I've never seen a conservative student at some university, try to attack a liberal speaker. You see the opposite on a regular basis. You don't see conservatives marching in the streets like you do the other side (conservatives have to work for a living so you don't see many of them marching anywhere) and shouting "fascists" at every opportunity even when they have no clue what the word really means. You also don't see conservatives shouting down the other side when they start spewing their hate. I've also never seen conservatives throwing rocks and bottles at the police and overturning cars, etc when something occurs they don't agree with like the "peaceful" liberals do. I could go on and on.

    Hopefully the Dean Wormers of the CD forums will let us off with a warning and give us all a second chance.
