:edit: The purpose of this thread is to answer simple questions about the series that have only one possible answer and are not open to interpretation. Question with answers that are entirely based on people's opinions (eg. Who was the mysterious being at the end of #41?) are questions that can be discussed in depth and therefore should have a thread made to discuss the matter, unless a thread on the subject already exists, in which case you can post there.

Example:

Quote
Q: In which book did Rachel morph into an elephant and threatened an abusive circus performer using cattle prods on circus elephants?

A: In Book #7, The Stranger.

This great evil - where's it come from?
How'd it steal into the world?
What seed, what root did it grow from?
Who's doing this?
Who's killing us, robbing us of life and light, mocking us with the sight of what we mighta known?
Does our ruin benefit the earth, aid the grass to grow and the sun to shine?  Is this darkness in you, too?  Have you passed through this night?

Pretty much, yeah, but we're going with it, I guess.
Still...MARXIST?!?

FAQ stands for FREQUENTLY asked questions. ::)
The universe is, instant by instant, re-created anew. There is, in truth, no Past, only a memory of the Past. Blink your eyes, and the world you see next did not exist when you closed them. The only appropriate state of the mind is surprise. The only appropriate state of the heart is joy. The sky you see now, you have never seen before. The perfect moment is now. Be glad of it.

Pick and choose any Cassie-narrated book....

I disagree.

If you disagree, please do state WHY. :)

It was a joke (I didn't add that in. it was in the original post but in 2 point font)

I still don't get what it means.

The joke is that that person asked a question that nobody had asked.
The FAQ thread? FREQUENTLY asked questions?


Do you get it, now?

I'll try to simplify this, but if that creates any glaring errors feel free to correct me.

Marxism is an economic theory thought up by this German guy Karl Marx. He thought that all of the world's problems were caused by class struggle - the owners vs. the workers - and he wanted to fix that.

He thought that it could be solved by the proletariat - the working class - overthrowing the bourgeoise (business owners) to bring about a classless society with no government. He also wanted to abolish private property.

The goal of Marxism is no government, but somewhere in there is the idea of rule by a dictator to transition into a classless state. Enlightened despots are extremely rare in history, so pure Marxism is idealistic.

Soviet-style communism draws from Marxism, but it does have significant differences.

How, how, HOW did you manage to stick history, government, and economics (classes I wouldn't go near with a 10ft pole--excluding comaritive politics. That just sounds fun.) into one simple explanation?

And to answer that question: Ax. The Andalite government is kinda...loopie. If you know what I mean by that...Maybe circular would be a better term. And Ax was a big advocate of his people.
