I suppose it is and isn't all at the same time.
Indeed.

It's already Saturday in Vladivostok.

Good grief. Can't you keep all this over on the Trump thread? Why start another to keep saying the same things about each other?
This is a distinctly separate topic and I am seriously wondering if we have got Kremlin Trolls on the Forum, if you follow my logic you will see certain users very rarely comment on topics other then the ones with the main focus being; Brexit, Ukraine, anti-immigration (as in control), pro-Trump, anti-US, anti Europe, etc, etc.

No real clues of who they are, their work, their personal lives, absolutely nothing.

I hope they are Kremlin trolls because your description up there makes them sound a bit tragic if they're not...

Re: Putin or Krembots, do they exist and have they infiltrated EF?

Actually, I know many Russians. I have to say that they are not a lot different from Americans. Except they seem to take life a little too dramatically and tragically sometimes. But other than that, there really is no reason why Russians and Americans couldn't get along. We already do. We have huge Russian communities in New York, upper Midwest and San Francisco.

Tvoye zdorovye!

Re: Putin or Krembots, do they exist and have they infiltrated EF?

I have always wondered where this American anti-socialist-ism came from, why is it that America is so against socialist values like equality, common ownership of resources, equality in healthcare and working together for the common good?

I don't really watch a lot of TV. Why? A point of reference? Perhaps articulate?

It is not against the proposed values, but the methods employed. Probably at the top of the list of its failings is simply competence, amongst others. Theirs is not the only approach.

I am all for it ! I, as an American, have always appreciated good old fashioned socialist values, but try saying that to an average U.S. citizen. You would think I eat babies for breakfast.

Re: Putin or Krembots, do they exist and have they infiltrated EF?

I blame McCarthy.
Methinks it is because "the" American sees a linear procession from socialism to communism. I suspect this dates back from the "Red scare" of the late nineteenth and early 20th century then again in the 30ties with the rise of the unions and their more or less forced implementation of workers rights, things that we take for granted these days, ideas that were scary and revolutionary back then. I think also that back in the day the American communists alligned themselves too far with Stalin, and that was never going to work. And then you got McCarthy.

Better dead then red they used to say! I think socialism in itself is a wonderful ideal but in reality humans are human, so I don't ever see it working. Communism has never worked in a democratic way. I am quite amused by the Marxist ethics of the Corbyn led Labour party, they'll never win an election with him in charge though.
