    So the communists are shooting other communists, and not dissidents? So what’s the point here, he’s a dissident because he doesn’t think that they’re real communists and communists kill dissidents, or communists kill each other because reasons?

    BRILLIANT

      Party purges don’t need any reason. As recorded in an old Soviet joke:

      Three men in the prison cell are sharing their stories.
      – “I’m here because I spoke ill of comrade Ovechkin,” says the first guy.
      – “I’m here because I spoke well of comrade Ovechkin,” says the second guy.
      The third guy looks up.
      – “I’m Ovechkin,” he says.

        dying to know how that third guy got out of prison to birth one of the greatest hockey players of all time

    well this one doesn’t make any sense whatsoever

      if you’re smarter than a doorknob you can figure this out

    The original concept of communism has never been successfully executed in any government because of:

    1. There needs to be an excess of supplies and services in the society for it to work.

    2. All communist governments have been corrupted in some way or form so that the spread isn’t equal among all citizens.

    3. None of the communist societies have been able to make the original concept work in the real world.

    Communism in its purest form isn’t a bad idea [read Looking Backwards by Edward Bellamy for an example], but it hasn’t ever been executed in this manner because people tend to corrupt things with their greed, and there aren’t any countries with the elements needed to make a successful communist republic.

      Actually communism is basically slavery in it’s truest form

    • Adam Darwin

      Gee, I guess we’d better try again.

      • mynameiscat

        True communism actually has been tried! In the 1930s during the Spanish civil war, Catalonia adopted the envisioned democratic communist government form. It rapidly saw increases in freedom and standard of living, while the rest of the country only fell apart. And yes, there was a conservative republic in Spain as well at the time. It faired worse off. The fascists won the civil war, and everything went downhill.

          Stalin was a class traitor, don’t trust tankies

          • mynameiscat

            I hate Stalin, I hate the USSR, I hate forced collectivization and I hate the idea of the dictatorship of the proletariat. Communism, as most often put in practice, is horrible.
            But that doesn’t mean socialism is bad. The idea of socialism is to ensure that people have the ability to live with their necessities fulfilled. No matter if you were born with less skills and dedication so you can’t start a business or find a well- paying job, you’re still a human being with thoughts and feelings. Everyone has the right to food, shelter, health, and, if possible, happiness. That is what democratic socialism fights for.

            So you support arbitary hierachies? Just wait til the rich’s robots take over and we live off the crumbs of their UBI

            That’s perhaps capitalism endgame, ghettos with free Hulu and Taco bell drones, while the rich live in their pleasure palaces with their sex robots

            Liberal Representative democracy has failed, time for liquid democracy

            That’s what I’m an anarchist trying to do too, also make the robots be used by the public, because UBI ain’t communism but nicer serfdom

            I wouldn’t label myself just yet, but pushing society toward sophisticated technologies that would give independence and self-reliance back to the people is what I advocate. I’m sure the military has the means already. I’m talking about devices as ubiquitous as cellphones that can form or grow homes and vehicles from soil; chimera plants that can even grow meats; organic-digital hybrid technology to replace plastics and metals.

            But in my system we would still be a republic. A federation of republics with limited and decentralized power. Basically peacekeepers that keep anyone from causing too much imbalance or ruining the local environment. Otherwise you would be free to do as you please; and if nothing else, you could start your own sovereignty by terraforming previously uninhabited regions of the sea, sky, underground, or space.

            Unfortunately evil is metaphysical and will seep into the hearts of men one way or another. Unless we figure out whatever the hell interdimensional demons are and kill them all lol.

          • Jesher

            Actually, as long as we’re talking about the hypotheticals of breakthrough miracle technology, we could always partition off our own universes or dimensions to rule as we see fit. Go be a nuisance somewhere else, basically.

            It would be like VR except without the crippling atrophy.

    • Jesher

      You can’t separate the idea from the man who invented it, who happens to be a Satanist who wrote poetry about conquering the world and reveling in blood and destruction.

  • Stiffy Weiner

    Fucking tankies.

  • Frans Cobben

    Many followers of L Trotsky were killed by other “fellow” communists!

  • Frans Cobben

    Look at the Spanish civil war 1936 to 1939, communists fought against other socialists!
