    Oh well, civil rights can wait until next time, at least.

    Honey does a wonderful job. ;) what a lovely buffet is before them. Many years after this strip we would see the tienamen square incident which was also long ago. I have heard there are still some rumblings of hunger for democracy there today, though who knows if it would happen. China is so large and complex.

    Duke didn’t talk about ball bearings, that ended in a question mark. Honey’s translation was about ball bearings.

    The ‘Nixon in Watt’ strip was the classic in translating political speeches.

    I have frequently thought that the US itself is too large and complex to be governed through our present system. Lefties don’t want to speak of it, and righties don’t want to hear it, but this country could use a good dose of “central planning,” to balance the corporate skip down that rosy road to fascism we are so obviously, and seemingly obliviously, traveling.

    She comes from that Maoist Marxist culture that believes that giving political speeches drive the economy which we’re seeing in practice today in our own country.

    Why is it all religion’s fault? Unless the religion is Corporatism.
    I don’t think religious people necessarily want to cede this country to the megarich. Just sometimes, fundamentalism goes along with a party that considers itself the owner of “family values”.
    Are the ChiComs religious? I don’t think so, they don’t even worship Mao any more.

    We saw a really chilling program on North Korea last night. Makes Orwell’s 1984 look pale by comparison.

    I think I can help you with this; religion as we know it demands ignorant obedient sheep-like followers who never question authority for that is heresy. A free, democratic society demands intelligent, well-informed people who can freely question and challenge authority. Religions are passed along to helpless children who learn early on through terrible threats that they must never inquire into the facts and must accept blindly stories that no intelligent mind would accept; virgin birth, talking snakes, women being turned into pillars of salt, the ridiculous ark fantasy, to name a few. Recent polls show that almost 50% of our population believe that the earth is 6000 years old and that people co-existed with dinosaurs, that the Flintstones was a documentary as Lewis Black put it. People this ignorant are easily led by those who want power for their own ends and who don’t want to have economic fairness or equality; the so called 1%. That’s why it’s religion’s fault.

    In all the years I’ve been reading Doonesbury, this strip stands out as one of the funniest ever. Makes me laff out loud.
