    L!berals vs L!brals fighting and appeasement effort disguised as an effort to 'eradicate white supremacy'.

    To Anon. The question is unrelated to the category. If it were placed in Politics and Government, in News or Events or in Social Science it would have some relevance. Well read people answer in those categories, people who study politics, government race relations, ethnic confrontations, law enforcement, sociology, psychology. The questioner would get better answers if he asked his questions in the relevant categories. If he or she wants a defense of beliefs, he should go to those qualified to give them - experts of those subjects. No one asks an auto-mechanic about the human liver. No one asks a doctor about the knock in his car's engine. No one asks about Shakespeare, Hemingway or Agatha Christie, first-person point of view in the novel they wish to write, or about Harry Potter, Sherlock Holmes or Discworld in the Politics or Food and Wine categories.

    Here, the question is spam. It is unrelated to literature. It is worded in a way that provokes confrontation. (... in this *supposedly* free society")

    (... not allowed...) The OP, as you call the questioner, does not seem to care for a pertinent answer but for a flame war. This person hides under 'Anonymous', like yourself, instead of using even a pseudonym that marks him or her from the others. The OP does not carefully read many of the articles he cites.  In this case the AMT person's use of "absolute scum" is name-calling denegration,  not criticism. If a Member of Parliament said it about another MP in or out of the House, that MP would get it hot from the Speaker, his party's Whip, the Opposition  parties and the media. If a soldier said it about his officer, he'd be courtmartialed. If I said it about you, you could sue me.

    To those asking why the OP posted this question in Books & Authors, it's probably because the OP assumed well-read people would be able to defend their beliefs using facts, logic and reason. Instead of ducking his question, try answering it instead. 

    To the OP, children are taught Marxism through college. Those grads move into career fields which impact our lives, such as media, entertainment and government. So we wind up with constant Marxism being forced upon us. There's no longer such a thing as apolitical sports, television shows, advertisements, video games, etc. They all bend their knees to Marxist organizations such as BLM, whose founder admitted to being a "trained Marxist".

    Our society is now "free" in the sense that Nazi Germany was free.
