Quote of the Day

“I’m enjoying the irony of American Sanders supporters lecturing me, a former Soviet citizen, on the glories of Socialism and what it really means! Socialism sounds great in speech soundbites and on Facebook, but please keep it there.”
— Garry Kasparov

The Former Soviet Union as a Force for Good?!

No, that wasn’t posted by some 90-year-old veteran of the Great Patriotic War.

That picture of “Captain USSR” was most likely posted by an American twentysomething or thirtysomething, and then was “re-tweeted” by another American thirtysomething, one Matt Kuehnel, who had previously fronted for the “Libertarian Socialist Caucus” in the Libertarian Party.

No, I’m NOT making any of this up.
