Brunswick, ME Â “The American people will never knowingly adopt Socialism. But under the name of ‘liberalism’ they will adopt every fragment of the Socialist program, until one day America will be a Socialist nation, without knowing how it happened.”Â Â Â Â – Norman Mattoon Thomas 1928.

Dear Information Technician Luedke:
I agree with former presidential candidate Norman Thomas and do hope we achieve democraticÂ socialism so our 48,000,000 citizens without health care would be covered LIKE you are at public expense and those without jobs are taken care of etc. If you are in the navy, you appear to have been brainwashed into believing that only violence can defend our freedom and that capitalism is superior, which unregulated can lead to horrendous suffering and social dislocation. Also those officers, I presume navy, who authorised thoseÂ snipers to murder like cowards those, black, young, desperate, poorÂ Somali pirates have blood on their hands. There was no reason to treat unresisting civilians in that manner. It lowers the navy to the level of those pirates in my opinion.
Also if you contact me again, kindly address me by name and sign your e-mail. I expect you as I did when I was in the military to comport yourselfÂ in aÂ professional manner toward those you claim to serve.
I am sincerely yours,
Peter N. Kirstein
