An interesting article on SMH today - talking about communism/marxism and fascism. Good to see someone point out that just because of a failed version of marxism under Stalin doesn’t mean communism=fascism. Some useful explanations in there, and the important suggestion that “New kinds of idealism need to be rethought, not buried.”

Vaguely related - bit scared about the release of Mamdouh Habib from Guantanamo after all this time - not because I fear he’s dangerous, but because it suggests that the US kept him locked up for almost three years without ANY evidence (if they had something at all they’d have knocked together a case easily…!) And it’s rather scary that our government had no problem with that…
