    interesting interview on Henwood's show. The segments on sex in the DDR interested me i particular. "If sex was better for women in socialism," says Henwood at one point, quoting a Reddit user, "then it must be natural that sex is better for men in capitalism".

    I actually took up contact with Ghodsee, who will sadly not be visiting Europe soon…

    "If sex was better for women in socialism,"
    maybe that explains why Willy Brandt couldn't resist that East German spy?

    "In the realm of the seekers after truth there is no human authority.
    Whoever attempts to play the magistrate there founders on the laughter of the Gods."

    Er..., on what basis do you call what existed in E Germany, "socialism"?
    The emancipation of the working class will be an act of the workers themselves.

    I think I was citing Doug Henwood, who in turn was citing a Reddit user. Maybe take it up on Reddit.

    If so, why did you post something you can't explain?

    If you didn't agree with it, why not say so? And if that is the case, why post it in the first place?

    For the purpose of discussion, but I've long learned of the pitfalls of conversing with you. I'll pass.
