The DDR just sounded better than something about "Federalists".
Now I see the ANC that I once supported in South Africa (SA) are supporting the most militaristic regimes on the planet. Their youth call this anti-imperialism.
But now I'm really confused.
How can communist dictatorships without free and fair elections be called "democratic"?
Isn't that a contradiction?
