Um, what? So capitalism, which lets one company dominate, and rewards you for making money in any way you can, and punishes those who are not from a
higher class backround, and rewards the rich with tax breaks, and taxes the poor so they stand no chance, is good. Riiight oh fella.
Is this actually a joke?
And Communism has worked 100% on small scale communes that hte US government in their wisdom called evil and shut down, despite the people living on
them had happy, great lives, living a dream, living independantly, happily, but they were of course branded evil. Most of them commited suicide after
they were stopped. Yeah, you gotta love America! Lets go and enforce our views on all!
The American way of life is like building a sky scraper on shed foundations; Its gonna collapse. Your pushing it to far, it does not create
opportunity, noyl a brainwashed mass. Why do you think America is great? Seeing some of the propaganda you guys have on TV, I feel sorry for you
beleiving it! I still love to have a laugh at the adverts making the USSR out to be a highly advanced superpower menace! Some of the recent election
ones were brilliant. But we get it over here, we just gotta ignore it all.
And Communism has NEVER been properly practiced when ruling a country. Ever. The USSR, China, Vietnam, N.Korea, Cuba, all use it as a banner, but fail
to practice it.
Cuba isn't to bad at the moment, considering all the American goverments have done to try to ruin their country. Limiting trade, limiting any aid,
but it still goes, and the people their aren't to bad. Yes, its not a great life, but considering, it takes a storng will to put up with that. For
that I admire them, but for the fact that its not practacing the ideals, well, its a shame. It would be a great example if the next leader could
follow communism to the book. It would be a ray of hope for the world.
Wow, hang on. Are you saying its better to be free and starving on the street than oppressed with a house and food? I think at the moment there are
several many Iraqi's that would care to Disagree!
