You can't "account" for human nature. That's the point.

The human progress is based on the free exchange of ideas, on individuality and on constantly innovating to make our existence easier and less suffering. 

Every ideology that tends to control the fabric of society (religious, political, ...) has to control and limit the above mentioned, thus negating our true self.

It's been a while, but I believe that Marxism is by and large an interpretational theory, though it also made the occasional prediction. It was the subsequent prescriptive political theories that, to varying degrees, failed to account for human nature.

I've mentioned it before, but it irks me how the Cold War has influenced our learning of historical and economic theories so that we conflate things like communism and fascism (which are ideological opposites) and are entirely uncritical* of capitalist principles (and slavish condemnation of those principles by Bernie Bros is at least as uncritical as their unthinking acceptance, perhaps even more so).


I love polos. None of mine are bespoke. I don't wear chinos though. Polos and jeans for me. Or shorts.

*critical thinking, not being critical (as in offering criticism)

I think I liked it better when Noodles was being a dick.

Noodles' buffoonery was the only thing checking my desire to turn this thread into a nerdfest.

Can I summon @Academic2 as one does a Pokemon?

Also, I'm keeping @heldentenor in reserve. This thread is missing a good discussion of the long term economic impacts of the Reconstruction on the South.

Exactly.

Is there a thread that discusses relation between political orientation and style choices? Who dresses better, commies or nationalists? Liberals or conservatives?

If you want absurdity go to the dress in academia thread.

Be careful. Not everyone on this forum comes from the same side of iron curtain.

Somehow I suspect the former Bloc countries haven't been any better conditioned to think critically about economics and history than we have.

I am not looking for overly academic discussion. I am looking for.. ahem... opinionated discussion.

(Aren't all western academics Marxist?)😂
