  •  How is comparing ANYTHING to the Stasi arguing (7+ / 0-)

    your point in good faith? Why can't you admit that this argument is 1) factually wrong; 2) not presented in good faith.

    When is the last time I even bothered to show up in one of your counterfactual, not-in-good-faith diaries? I'm so tired of the inevitable shitstorms they create. And fractures they attempt to create among longtime members who have been longtime allies on a whole host of important progressive issues.

    But I went to the DDR and the USSR as a child. We have many family friends who grew up under Soviet and Soviet-allied regimes. These direct, indelible experiences led me to study European History, get a couple of degrees in the subject, and teach it to others. 'Worst [sic] Than the Stasi' was a title I simply could not ignore when I happened to be on the site earlier today.

    You are entitled to your own opinions. [After all, this is a free country, unlike the DDR or the USSR.] But you are NOT entitled to your own facts.

    Ho'oponopono. To make things right; restore harmony; heal.
