Are you feeling responsible about slavery in the past?
You should not be. You do not keep slaves, and not likely to keep slaves in the future.

But here is something. There are still over 35.8  millon slaves on the planet.

If you or others want to atone for past slavery, how about working on, helping to end slavery wherever it may be?

No. even in the late 60s and early 70s, I experienced both liberal and conservative professors.  So I had to be able to show views on tests that I might not have agreed with. to pass the courses.

Proof you are just a sterile female drone in the D hive ;-)

Miscount.  Wage and debt slaves aren't counted.  But those more serious slaves, that is serious.  It is British Victorian to abolish slavery thru the power of the British Empire and British Evangelicalism.  But we are way past that.

Define "slave".  Are you counting people who are essentially enslaved by their govrnments?

Students spend tens of thousands of dollars for four year of Maxist indoctrination. Money well spent?
They come out dumber than before they went in. Programmed to self destruct.
What kind of utopia will replace western culture? None.

Cui bono?


MAGA hats are genocide.

Criticizing feminism is promoting violence.

You keep arguing about Marxism, sometimes seeming in favor and sometimes against.  It is probably your angry fanaticism that make it difficult to understand your views. 

Get a grip on your posts..

For the record: I am never FOR Marxism. 
Your confusion is your own problem.

Yeah, I screw that up sometimes. 

But sometimes your political statements are equally hard for me to follow.

I missed out on communist indoctrination. Dropped out of school at age 12.
(Left Hungary after the failed uprising in 1956.)

Forgive me, but that does explain why you slip into Marxist speech sometimes.  And that's what confuses me from time to time.

I don't actually connect atheism to communism, and sometimes you do.  Just saying...

Atheism has something to do with communism.
Religion is shunned in communist countries.
The Soviet Union (past) China, NK all discourage religion.
In Hungary the deity was Stalin.

The media predicted 98% probability for Hillary.
When she lost, there was a meltdown in the Democrat camp.

Instead of religion there is Cult of Personality.

:a situation in which a public figure (such as a political leader) is deliberately presented to the people of a country as a great person who should be admired and loved

I generally deny the connection of communism with atheism.  In communism, unofficially the deity was the head of State. I do not think of atheism as political.

Your mistake.  Sometimes it is, sometimes it isn't.  For you, in the US, it wasn't political.  If you lived in the Warsaw pact it was.  And R-wingers here didn't fail to notice.  It was one of their chief means, since 1917, to declare jihad on communists and communism.  Particularly in Germany.

And most people consider such fascist stuff as ideology, not theology.  Otherwise I can report lots of people here worship false gods.  If I accepted your definition of deity, then all Presidents from Kennedy forward, are false gods, and political parties are churches (not just as polling places).
