Good to know that mysogeny is live and well in your world.

I have news for you. Albert Einstein was a socialist.

He may have been. It’s well known that great genius and certain types of mental illness go together. In my experience, it leads them to have certain blind spots

But that’s really beside the point. We have enough data points to show that as far as governance philosophies go, socialism doesn’t work. Economically, it leads to misallocations of funds and resources; socially, the majority of the citizenry reject the concept, which is why Hitler, Lenin, Stalin, and Mao all had to enforce it at the point of a gun.

Hence, the Einstein axiom holds. Perhaps had he lived longer, he’d have seen the implosion of the USSR, China, the travesty of North Korea and Cuba, and realized it applied to his political views as well.

Also, are sure you really know the true history of the cold war or just a bunch of propaganda?

Economically, yes, and if I need to ask for more details from a societal standpoint, I ask someone who is a historian who also lived it. Svetlana Voreskova
