Less is More (Why it is not a good idea to waste time arguing with idiots)

Hi everyone,

I promised myself, when I considered becoming active on RevLeft, that I would not waste precious time arguing with idiots. I believe many readers here will understand what I am talking about. In nearly all leftist forums which are open in character--there is a phenomenon of certain people who are, essentially, aggressively clueless, hot-headed, word-twisting time-wasters.

The problem with engaging in serious work on any open forum--is that these people will...

American Communism

Posted 6th January 2010 at 23:35 by dar8888

Greetings, Comrades!

Communism today is in a somewhat precarious position. We argue over who was a true Marxist - Stalin or Mao. We are fragmented into numerous, small, groups. We are more active on-line than in person.

What we need to do, as American Communists, is to forget trying to push the greatness of Stalin and/or Mao - We are Americans,not Russian or Chinese. We need to return to the primary principles of Marxist-Leninist theory, and observe the ideas of Stalin,...

I left, why?

So, a few months ago (six?) I posted that I was leaving RevLeft and not coming back. Yet I came back? why? Basically, because I drop in sometimes to read RevLeft, and I saw this bullshit about the CC being dropped (closed). That annoyed me, so I came back merely to post on that issue.

I won't be posting on any other issue. Feel free to leave me a visitor message (but do not bother with a PM, I probably won't see it). Or comment on this blog post is another option.

Ben will be away from RevLeft for 10 days

Hi everyone,

It is necessary that I take a ten day break from RevLeft. I believe my activity here has been generally worthwhile. But I find that this forum has been taking a big share of my attention and I must apply my attention elsewhere to restore the necessary balance.

I have made a bunch of posts. I have gotten a bit more than a dozen "thanks" and also pissed off a number of people. I have added half a dozen people to my "ignore list", most for...
