Eh, I'm getting tired of your aggressive responses to my posts.

Instead of saying "bull****" explain to me what's bull**** exactly.

Getting back to this: maybe we're defining 'class' differently, but I assume some of these sosloviya had a higher social status than others, and there would be differences between culture, language etc. between some of these groups. To me that counts as a class: a social hierarchy mainly determined by birth, with cultural and often economic consequences

He didn't.

One thing is not "a lot".

Especially when even that one thing wasn't actually bull****. He thought of that statement as bull**** because of his own views on the world. While "bull****" is something that refers to facts.

It's either naive or dishonest to frame opportunity for the beaten down as the oppression of the privileged or "exactly the same" as capitalist oppression though. Saying "bull****" is just a more direct way of saying that you're ignoring facts that make your statements untrue.

If you describe Soviet-style social engineering as offering "opportunity for the beaten down" then it's not Mucha who's ignoring the facts. If we're talking in the abstract, then yes, "opportunity for the beaten down" is a perfectly nice idea.

Default Hey Elph

Hey,

I feel like when I post something on the more "community based" forums, you argue against me in a most aggressive for offensive way.

And I don't get why.

Have I done something to offend you or something?

You know, you're past the 15K (our whatever) posts here, and you're the English native speaker, not me.
If I do something that annoys you, maybe there'd be a better way to do it, than to make me feel "unwanted"?

I'm always all for reason, arguments, etc, etc. If you don't agree with some of my statements - fine, but tell me so, and let's talk. No need to be rude.

I feel like posting someone's private message is a rule violation. Either way it's a bitch move.
