Gift Economy and Anarcho-Socialism Explained

December 31, 2014

Socialism arose as a struggle for equality in Europe as a combined result of protests from different layers of society against other or sometimes the same layers of society. I’d argue that Protestantism was the pre-cursor to this movement, starting with events like the burning of Jan Hus at the stake in 1415 for criticizing the power of the Pope.

But, Grybauskaite now says that protecting the youth from information about dangerous sexual preferences is not as important as working against discrimination.

First of all, the only reason for this sudden change of heart is because everybody else knows this law is ridiculous; having a sexual appetite for someone else is not dangerous in itself.

Also, when people don’t understand why the logic is flawed, they can’t be expected to correct matters logically either. How can information about something perceived as dangerous be dangerous? Isn’t it the other way around? Shouldn’t anti-gay forces want to spread the word that being gay is an abomination and will lead to eternal torture in God’s oven downstairs?

No, this is all nonsense and it won’t stop being nonsense until Lithuania stops being homophobic.

Grybauskaite is gay.

While people are being ignorant in Europe, eastwards people are amazed that the sky is black. Apparently, nobody has ever been awake during the night before. Although admittedly, it does look pretty cool/gay.
