    Dutch Wrote: Someone on TV made a comparison of 1929 and now; it is unbelievable how "L'Histoire ce repette". Chamberlin a British diplomat also praised Hitler before the war, as well the GOP in 1929 introduced tariffs, which resulted in the crash of 1929. Everyone knows what happened thereafter.
    Chamberlain, Prime Minister of the UK, was faced with an impossible situation - Hitler was an obvious threat, he couldn't get an agreement on an alliance with Mussolini, and American imperial plotting made the traditional alliance with Japan impossible. As a tory, of course, he deliberately insulted the USSR and wouldn't support Spain, because he hated the British working class and everything it stood for. But this, of course, was much later than the idiocies of 1929

    You desperately need a proper NHS over there. To put people's lives in the hands of profiteers is madness, surely?

    Good luck from the UK to the decent American majority in eliminating this fascist swine!

    The capitalist offensive is happening everywhere, but the opposition is taking shape again. Solidarity from the UK!

    Making drugs illegal is a way to build up yet another gang of managers employing people to waste time and fill the prisons. Tax the rich who peddle the drugs instead, heavily.

    Trump lives in a weird dream where his side is always being cheated. This tariff business has been shown again and again to be incompatible with successful world capitalism. The difficulty is that it is normally replaced only by fascism, which would suit Trump but few others.

    It seems to me that a serious attempt to get rid of the gerrymandering and give uncommitted voters a voice would do wonders.

    The great thing about almost all other countries is that they have no evil organisations like the NRA. The Nazis were enough!

    Good luck to Mr Sanders. I'm afraid that the poor and uneducated are easily brainwashed everywhere, particularly after McCarthy's Great Work. They need little pamphlets about arses and elbows or (preferably) to experience a decent strike.

    I think that, so far, the vast numbers of decent Americans and the total incompetence of the Fat Clown will prevent real Nazism.
