Morality takes a backseat. Honesty has a new name. Yup Andrew. To learn about the truth of it seems to me to be worthwhile to read the entries of To come to terms with the crimes against humanity by Suharto and his gang, Indonesia should recognize the facts and should follow the lead of South Africa: the culprits who are still alive, should be tried by some tribunal of reconciliation.

Those cold war days. It was a fight between two systems and the battlefield stretched far and wide, from central america to South East asia. In Vietnam alone more than a million died, including american GIs. These 2 ideologies are no different from religious ideologies. A day will come when all men will see the futility in ideologies.
There is another movie shows how 30th September Movement and afterwards happened in Indonesia. Sputjam is surely wrong to equate democracy with other ideologies, as if they are commercial brands of toothbrush, equally useful. Communism, like its sister Nazism, was a homicidal dementia, which still has.
As for Islamist ideology, not to be confused with Islam as a religion, then we see what it means to impose on all nations — death to adulterers apostates, brutal floggings of kids and working men who dare to cuddle lovers or play cards, and banning mixed marriages. As the Indonesians mentioned above clearly know, the PKI was a malignant cancer, just as any Communist party is, a current example being that in little Nepal.
There the mainstream parties made the grave error of treating reds as normal politicians, despite their long record of terrorism. They should be taken on and taken out. Like the PKI, who were excised and a good thing too. Still at it hey Ross,you blood thirsty old facist! As for Nepal.. I did not condemn democracy. If US is referred to, it meant capitalism. China embraced capitalism before England was formed, never mind the US.
Capitalism flourished when a monetary unit was formed, making things easier to trade. Democracy has its flaws. In the US, the native indians were denied the right to vote until too late. If the voice of the majority is upheld, then what do the minorities do when they are subjected to unfair practices, such as in malaysia and singapore, or even in indonesia? In a multiracial settings, I think the vote of the majority will marginalised the minorities.
Democracy works in a single ethnic entity, not in multiracial settings. Much like to european union, only by consensus will the minority voices be heard. The countries Ross mentioned as being successful have also eliminated religion from the government, as all government and mankind should, using common sense to promote good governance and a civil and caring society, and keeping the priests and dictators from enslaving the masses. I guess moving into political terminology from zoological is progress of sorts. Turning to serious commentators, Sputjam, I apologise if I misunderstood your views on America, and gladly accept your assurance that you believe in democracy.
Returning to the lunatic lefty Ogle… Nepalese politics may be worth arguing about, maybe, but the point I made was that the reds entered into a deal and left when they faced exposure to democratic elections. We have spoken about mis-direction and mis quoting before its dishonest and really a sad portrayal of a pint of view.
Could there be a sillier statements. Just because someone does not think its ok write off millions of people to support a far right tyranny does not make then a far leftist nor a communist. Poor Wee Robbie Ogle! If we fail to put its Indonesian variant in a broad geo-political and historical context, we risk forgetting the nature and extent of its evil. I see no need to repeat it again. Though of course your pink oggling heart is doubtless bleeding for him still. Ross, i think the communist threat is over… you can relax now…. More to the point: the reds debate is over, pal. No-one, including the reds think Marxist-Leninism is a good way to run an economy anymore.
The truth is pretty ugly for the left. The answers are lost in the shadows of We can, however, find them, through the light of scholarship and debate. Castro is literally on his last legs and will die soon as will communism on that crumbling island.
