    Um, what about Thatcher, Reagan, Pinochet, Suharto, Hayek and the Friedman economists then?

    Possibly because they have other priorities? Besides, there are sound practical arguments to be made against the privatisation of natural monopolies like the railways and utilities - private...
  3. "On key economic issues, 'far right' regimes were to the Left of today's Labour and Dems." Discuss.

    It is something I have touched upon in other threads, but I think it deserves a proper discussion in its own right. On key economic issues to do with ownership of the economy and the role of trade...

    Yes I agree the list is a bit tenuous, but interesting all the same.

    Renewable energy does and will have to play its part in making us less dependent on fossil fuels, but it should be combined with nuclear too, which is where I disagree with most Greens.

    See what I wrote above. I support much of the Green agenda (notwithstanding their hysterical attitudes towards nuclear energy), but the types who dominate Green Parties are a weird mix of both...

    I agree with a lot of the Green agenda, but the trouble is that Green Parties (including here in the UK) are usually dominated by middle and even upper-class types who can be quite out of touch, and...

    I understood the wars were typical Cold War wars between Communists/pro-Soviets and Capitalists/pro-Americans? And Angolans and Mozambicans at least speak Portuguese, whereas Ukrainians don't.

    It depends. I still support the legalisation of drugs, prostitution and euthanasia. (Though that is more libertarian than leftist I suppose). But I oppose the increasingly sentimental and...

    Um, didn't Mozambique and Angola have civil wars until 1990 and 2002 respectively? I am sure at least some of those who came to Portugal from those countries were refugees fleeing said wars.

    Most Angolans and Cape Verdeans in Portugal are hard-working too, yet you don't sing their praises. (I wonder why?)

    Because many people are more snobbish and contemptuous towards the poor, destitute and uneducated of their own nations than those of other nations, usually due to being more familiar with them. (I...

    How many Ukrainian refugees are estimated to be in Croatia now?

    I am glad Feiichy has seen the light (in a sense). Being White doesn't inherently make immigrants 'better' than if they were non-white.

    Only in a purely biological sense. We share 98%+ of our DNA with chimpanzees - doesn't mean we are the same as them. When it comes to politics, economics, language and culture, I think Joseph...
