Being seriously mad about government not being more controlling from the safety of your home is dumb, but its your constitutional right.

Meanwhile in communist china when you make an obvious joke about government online you get interrogated by thugs in a chair like in the pic, and in communist Korea your family gets fed to the dogs after being raped in prison for a few years.

That's not what he was arguing, only that the same tyranny exists within capitalist systems, but at least communists arguably have some influence over it, whereas capitalist states don't even have to pretend the state acts in the interests of the workers.

As opposed to the US where political speech by those whose interests are opposed to those of the capitalist class is curtailed by laws targeting them at a demographic level?
The US locks a hell of a lot more people up than China.

Communism turned backwards agrarian countries into industrialized powerhouses with living standards comparable to countries that industrialized a century earlier within a single generation.
Capitalism reversed most of that progress in a decade.

In HS, I learned communism is when everyone shares and everyone recieves the same wage. Capitalism is when people buy and sell things and everyone wins.
In college I had an english prof say communism is when the government owns everything.

You can def argue that these countries were not socialist, some of their leaders literally claimed they were building capitalism to create the conditions necessary for socialism, but I don't see how you put 'socialist' in the name of your country without proclaiming your country is socialist.

It's a dumb Marxist-Leninist thing where they try to pretend the way they use words is just how the words have always been used and it's somehow objective, as if words don't derive meaning solely from context

Roughly speaking, I think the premise is socialism is inherently classless and therefor can't exist within the state as we know it. I think these days people generally say the basic tenant of socialism is workers controlling the means of production. According to Marxist- Leninists, the redistribution of resources requires state power and once completed the state supposedly dissolves. What exists in the interim period is a dictatorship of the proletariat, but since class and the state still exist, it isn't actually socialism, again according to some extremely online soviet fetishists

This doesn't stop Marxism-Leninism from being a shit ideology. Ideology in general is shit, but MLs in particular start with a love of the aesthetics and go from there, they fetishize putin and assad, love to do some historical revisionism on shit like the holodomor and gulags and swing back and forth on the authcomm/fascist pendulum. They really just want a strong daddy leader but know that communism is way more chic than fascism. They are some of the most bigoted people "on the left". The vast majority are the type who post on /leftypol/ about how transexualism is bourgeois. Not to mention, and I recognize the irony of this, they are hands down the most militantly sectarian group of people and would choose barbarism over socialism any day if it meant they didn't have to cooperate with people they disagree with. Such is life believing that a single narrative, i.e. dialectical materialism could possibly be the one right answer, finally after thousands and thousands of years we somehow magically cracked the code and know everything know. Marxism-Leninism is a religion not a science. Genuinely not even Maoists are nearly as bad, at least Maoists aren't class reductionist and recognize axis of oppression that affect people other than 20-something underachieving white dudes

Communism is when you privatize everything and the more you put in the hands of the capitalists, the more communister it is.

Yeltsin, the US backed candidate who won the candidacy after Gorbachev, was the reason for the economic collapse when he sold off the nation's industries for significantly less than they were worth. The economic impact on the average working class Schooln was astounding.

You mean dirty, inefficient factories where people were required by law to pretend to work towards arbitrary propaganda oriented goals, making some fat commie party members insanely rich, while workers couldnt get anything for the "money" they earned cause shops were literally empty, so they saved all life for it to become worthless overnight thanks to hyperinflation?

Privatisation just mercy killed them, saving the few that had a remote chance to be sustainable and turning them into something that makes any economic sense, unlike like employment for the sake of itself so that system can look good at least on paper.

You have no idea what youre talking about, communism is a fucking nightmare on so many levels its hard to believe, its like every horryfying dystopian s-f novel, only its fucking real.

the physical premise of communism never made sense, but not only because it's nonsensical, mainly there was a failure to visualize the consequences of the system.

if you want to convert a commercial system to communism, one of the things that will happen is the establishment of a community warehouse or commune. a second thing that will happen is the abolition of private property. a third thing that will happen is the abolition of peer to peer trade. each communist system is a little different in their bureaucratic approach to these 3 angles, but they can be reduced to these three in every case.

That's basically saying there is no more free will. you can't keep anything, or sell it, or trade it, ever again. you either bring it to the commune, or eventually it will be taken from you and you will be put in a labor camp. that's not freedom.

right now, what they refer to as capitalism, is the freedom to make peer to peer trades in your own best interest and keep what you want from it. How would we convert to communism? do we take things from people by force? to we guard them carefully or surveil them? to we put them in chains and try to force their bodies to do what we want? there doesn't seem to be a way to actually make it happen, which of course means that it can only happen by force. that will never be liberating, yet that's the proganda. that we will liberate some kind of production base from an opponent we don't have, from business owners that are our own brothers and sisters, our own countrymen. is it a way to make people fight each other? over money or class, when violence won't change those things?
>Why communists want their opponents to 'vote in support of the voters' own "economic self interest" just to graduate to a system where they aren't allowed to have their own economic self interest is beyond me.
I am baffled by them. I'm regularly retarded, and usually i get that for free, but with communists there is no common sense, not even from a retard's POV such as my own. not only does it not come for free, because i don't think, but when i do think about it there is never an answer. communism doesn't seem to be good for anything except playing us off of each other like animals in a pit.
When they can't take people's companies and capital goods, they instead try to take the money, as if it were lying around in one place. truly it's in play, mr illuminati's money is in everything and it is everywhere. you couldn't discern the difference between a dollar in your pocket and a dollar in theirs. in the words of alan watts, that's almost putting too fine a point on it.

Communism is an bunch of political hooey that appeals to slaves who can't really look deeply into why it won't work because they're illiterate, uneducated slaves. It is the same concept as capitalism. Ultimately, people will manage to live and die. The form of society in which they are born ultimately determines their motivations in life and how their happiness is achieved or lost. Capitalism is the illusion of freedom while communism is the freedom from freedom. In all things we must remember that death is the answer to life and my view isn't one of superseding or beating such enterprises. It is accepting death and then immediately ushering it forth to escape the torment that is existence and to a greater point, immortality and vulnerability.
