Legal We always try to avoid politics like the plague here on OSNews, but sometimes, it's hard to avoid it. Take the case of Joel Tenenbaum, who could be liable for over 1 million USD if the Recording Industry Association of America gets its way. While many hoped for a change of pace when it comes to these matters, Barack Obama's Department of Justice has squarely sided with the RIAA.

Then again, most Americans equate socialism with communism, which makes about as little sense as a dog eating the moon.

Would you elaborate on your view of the differences? At the moment I see it as the two having essentially the same end-game goals but different opinions of how to achieve them--essentially, a disagreement on whether society should be forcibly reinvented, or changed incrementally through the existing legal system. At any rate I am surprised that you think there is no common ground.

I's especially hilarious because most people don't even have a clue as to what "communism" means - and that there has never even BEEN a communist state, only dictatorships that CALL themselves communist.

Perhaps that there is something in human nature which makes it impossible, in the same way that perfect peace is impossible?
