What is a Marxist?
Communist, democratic socialist, social democrat and liberal are all different terms for different political understandings. Of course there is some overlap between adjacent terms. For example, Paul Krugman is a liberal but some of his ideas are soci...

Should publicly exposing illegal activity be a criminal offence?
Without whistle-blowers (I refuse to use the term 'leaker') there would be a lot more corruption. Edward Snowden and Chelsea Manning have paid a tremendous price for doing the right thing. What Michael Flynn did was illegal as well as being...

Will Trump's businesses profit from his Presidency?
He still won't even publish his tax returns and appointed a cabinet with cronies and family. There has always been some insider dealing in Washington but I predict the 'swamp-drainer' will take it to the next level.

There are a lot of trolls on here.
On EP trolls were more abusive. On SW its more that you get men pretending to be women to see if they can get some gullible smuck to flirt with them. I have spotted a few I am sure of.

Is Islam really worse than other religions?
I am utterly non-religious but I fully disagree with people who single out Islam as being worse. Action depends on how religious text is interpreted and that is based on culture and wider social/political factors. Quoting nasty verses written in the...

I actually think Donald Trump is going to prove a lot of people wrong...

Should Milo be allowed to speak?
I think he should. Criticise the troll and take it apart with your arguments. Getting angry or no platforming gives him exactly what he wants. https://www.google.co.uk/amp/s/amp.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2017/feb/06/free-speech-milo-yiannopoulo...

Why are the Chicago Bears doing so badly?
I used to follow US football a bit and I have noticed that they are not doing well. Why is this? Legacy of an entire defence retiring at the same time and paying too much to an over-rated quarterback, or is it something different?

Latest Tweet from President Bannon's media spokesman.
I have instructed Homeland Security to check people coming into our country VERY CAREFULLY. The courts are making the job very difficult! This is a deliberate strategy to bypass the courts and extend executive power.

Who will win the French Presidential Election?
This has become a four horse race and sadly I think Le Pen is slight favourite. I think Fillon's problems are a good thing though because A He is awful and B the most likely to lose to Le Pen in the second round.

Can you have alternative facts about alternative events?
The Bowling Green Massacre did not happen and there is no evidence. That Kellyanne Conway can say this - and that some people believe her - really should worry a lot of people. https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2017/feb/03/kellyanne-conway-refugee...
