Is Bastani the fool who advocates "luxury communism"? Anyone who thinks any form of communism is a solution to anything is to be ignored.

Was just looking at that incident in 1921 Germany, which involved twice as much of the stuff as yesterday's did. :shock:

It was marching here last week, proclaiming, "we are the Second Wave." The cops told them to go home.
