For Something: . I can not say when I began "standing" for things. College maybe. Real things worth addressing. The Infrastructure Party, The Anti-Global Warming Party, The Rent Control Party - have merit. Partys to believe in. Start in pre-school teaching usa management classes.Downside of freedom, we are free to do nothing. Thought provoking write, Gee. The Poet's Party - hey. :D ...a .

Interestingly: Out of respect for the office, he'd walk with a hefty fine. We are responding really quicky to unethical and unlawful behaviors - fake ballot boxes -stopped. slow down post office - early voting and tallying. Cop kills brutally without cause, fired or charged and arrested. Good people are no longer complacent. Problem - if he goes to Russia, he has a lot of info that could compromise a bit of usa security. He won't go to prison but his companies might take a hit. If I was a billionaire, I would not pay taxes either - 1%ers do not deal in such low dollar amounts. The tax code for the very rich were purchased.  . There is great wealth here, consequently there is huge crime, platinum collar to blue collar to no collar. For graphic examples, warch tv. . .

Starward commented on: Circa 1976: Elegy For The Young Poet, "Soselo" by Starward 1 day 16 hours ago
Thank you for commenting, and: Thank you for commenting, and I am not sure in regard to the thorn question.  However, I believe that the root of cause of all the upheavals that led to WWII in Europe can be attributed, fairly, to Lenin.  Both Nazism and Fascism were reactions to the Bolshevik revolution.  And even Lenin's political scheming was in service to his ultimate purpose, which was to revenge his brother's death---executed for an attempt on the life of the czar.  It is said that Lenin, himself, personally gave the order for the brutal murder of the Czar's family; and that, for the rest of his life, he was tormented by nightmares that Maria (who I happen to think was the most attractice of the Princesses) had survived and would return to lead a European army large enough to defeat the Red Army.  I think Stalin was Lenin's Frankenstein Monster; having promoted him, he ultimately could not control him.  Lenin's last political testament, which recommended removing Stalin from all offices, was read before the Party Congress by Lenin's widow---who is said to have been the only Bolshevik that Stalin actually feared.  If I recall correctly, the Moscow Trials, which was the murderous purge of almost all of Lenin's Bolshevik associates began only after his wife's passing.     A couple of years ago I purchased a cheap copy of Molotov's memoirs, and Stalin is described, therein, as almost greater than Lenin.  Molotov was said to be a very cultivated man, the only Bolshevik who favored three piece suits and table manners, but his hero worship of Stalin becomes, well before the book is finished, almost embarrasingly childish.     I used to think that housepainter Hitler was the most evil man in modern history, but I now believe that Lenin---through Stalin and through the reactions he created in Germany and Italy---bas the monopoly on that.     Thanks again for comenting.
