Haven’t looked at the site for weeks and this thread reminds me why. The OP reveals just how ridiculous the left has become and, I’m afraid, much of this board with it. Absolutely zero understanding of reality. China’s a classic example of what happens with regimes where the state controls everything and with a record on human rights every bit as bad as that of Nazi Germany and the USSR.
It’s what happens when you take genuine power away from the people. Our system of democracy and free market economics is far, far from perfect but my God it beats the alternatives.
But never mind all that, here’s an opportunity to bash those nasty Tories while the source of Bill’s quotation is of greater concern to the site’s resident quasi-intellectual than anything that might be happening in the real world. I guess he thinks it makes him look smart. In truth it just happens to be some words someone came out with. You can read into it whatever you like.
As for religion I happen to be an atheist but have nothing against anyone who has faith and would never try to persuade them otherwise. Of course religion’s been used for power and greed but that’s the case with anything and everything. It can also be a power for a lot of good. People are the problem, not religion.
Anyway, I won’t hang around for the predictable barrage of outrage and insults.
