Until I joined this site I never visited the Democratic Underground, but out of curiosity with the fascination some seem to have with the site I went there and spent a short time reading threads today. Given that I believe we all have limited precious time on earth, I guess I just don't understand why anyone would spend a single minute perusing that den of mindless, coercive collectivists and life's losers. The parroted parallels between the DU, the CPUSA and Peoplesworld couldn't be more apparent and is already available at those site. As a time saver one could just as easily read the communist manifesto (once) to get the same subversive, misguided views. I realize that absurdity can at times be amusing but to willingly expose yourself to a constant assault on your intellect seems to me like self abuse. Fortunately I felt the pressure building on my temples in short order and left before my head exploded.
Just my two centavos
