Yeah, of course spike, i am angry at you because 100 years ago people didn't accept trans people, duhuh. Of course that is totally your fault. (just saying i agree with you)
I take this all with a grain of salt. Besides, it's not like it'll ever happen. Not to mention, I'm first generation American, so there's that. Do I think things still need to change for true equality? Absolutely, but I'm not paying for something that me nor even my ancestors played a part in.
That's why modern day communism evolved into accepting unequality in status as a natural thing and instead strive for being a counterweight to right wing ideas. (well thats in our country at least)
Nooooo... I wasn't talking about equality of class, that's just asinine. I was talking more along the lines of fair treatment and opportunities(Well, opportunities are tgere. He'll, tgere are more for those of color in education than there are for me.). For instance, I have a friend who was pulled over four times in West Virginia and I know anytime I've been through tgere the cops could care less about me (I'm white, he's black.). It's stupid little things like that I'm talking about. But, you're absolutely right, really it's more about those with old school thought dieing off.
Modern day communism is far from extreme, actually. It's more close to the centre, however, due to politics going to right wing globally, people still tend to call it extreme. It is actually more or less what most americans prefer to call 'liberalism'. But it's the opposite of european liberalism (which capitalism/libertinism) and conservativism, so it searches for balance, rather than revolution.
That's neomarxism in a nutshell: no extremes, all reasonability, using acedemic thought over populism. That's also why it gets no votes, it's not exactly sexy and common people don't understand a word of it.
