As for "keeping race... in our faces", The Lounge here at Gersnet has you to thank for that. 

 

 

If you have an issue with a user's post, please report it rather than go against the rules I posted the other week.

I don't have an issue.

 

I simply quoted a poster and pointed out who in the Lounge actually does it.

 

That isn't an insult or abuse, it is simply how it is and if said poster makes a loud point about "keeping race... in our faces" then it is only relevant and right that someone points out that it is he who actually does it in The Lounge.

As said previously, I'd prefer we avoided the personal stuff as it just wastes all our time - most of all mine... ;)

I understood it to be when the personal stuff got abusive or simple trolling.

 

If you completely ban the personal then the place becomes somewhat sterile and I'd guess you might actually be busier until you have a near empty Lounge.

 

Most of us on here are big boys and can surely lock horns now and then but without abuse that had the moderators on O/T a few weeks back.........but it's your baw and you decide.

I'm not asking everyone to agree with my interpretation but just to be careful.

 

Carry on!

@alexscottislegend, did you get a chance to look at Victor Serge's autobiography?  

 

I finished it a couple of months ago and it's one of the best books I've ever read.  He saw more in a few years than most families will see in a few generations.

Here's an interesting comment by the Governer of the Bank Of England, nearly a century ago...

 

“Capital must protect itself in every possible way, both by combination and legislation.   Debts must be collected, mortgages foreclosed as rapidly as possible.  When, through process of law, the common people lose their homes, they will become more docile and more easily governed through the strong arm of the government applied by a central power of wealth under leading financiers.   These truths are well known among our principal men, who are now engaged in forming an imperialism to govern the world.   By dividing the voter through the political party system, we can get them to expend their energies in fighting for questions of no importance.   It is thus, by discrete action, we can secure for ourselves that which has been so well planned and so successfully accomplished.”

It's basically these interests that have driven neo liberal economics since Thatcher & Regan successfully brought in the fundamantal change.

 

To begin with it brought trickle down benefits but over several decades it's become an all consuming monster that has corrupted the whole shooting match and resulted in the god awful mess we have today.
