So - it should be quite clear that I post... a lot. Apologies if I crowd out your friends page. That said, I just wanted to post something I thought was funny over at /r/Communism (one of my frequent haunts these days -- the discourse if fairly intelligent, plenty of comradery, some joking, some serious discussion, non-partisan (in the communist sense), which means there are indeed some "Stalinists" "Maoists" and such. I wouldn't say that they are huge Stalinists, per se, but rather that they think that some of the stuff we hear is overblown. Not that they're defenders of what happened, but rather, some of it is due to poor choices of planning and mistakes in how to run shit. Regardless, I don't dwell too much on that topic, because to me, it's more a question of what the future holds, not the past... Not that we shouldn't learn from the past, of course, but we shouldn't dwell on it.)

OK, so, anyways, one of the comments by a mod was something along the lines of "I must go gulag myself now in penance" -- in reference to banning themselves for not living up to community standards. And now I have a new word "Self Gulaggation" which is just funny as shit, to me.
