It would have been more believable if she had emptied a bottle of pepsi then filled it with petrol, lit it and thrown it at the police.


Or if the other protesters beat her ass for giving a cop a Pepsi.

I think I would have to disagree with you on that aspect, always being the operative word. The only thing we could possibly accomplish discussing the benefits of socialism and communism is stroking our own pseudo intellectual egos. It was a conversation for late night smoke sessions in college and I am well beyond that stage of my life. I then spent almost a decade working in China, and while it isn't Communism in the sense that you would prefer it isn't Democracy either. I know first hand through my experiences and relationships that it is nothing to aspire for or desire for myself. Politically and socially there is nothing there that I would advocate for or prefer for my own country. That isn't to say that what we have here in the U.S. is somehow perfect or that I am thrilled about everything that happens, because it certainly is not the case either. I am not an ultra nationalist or anything, but I am very content and grateful I was born a United States citizen as there are few other places I would rather live.

I used to say that Communism sounds great in theory but fails in practice because I had heard other people say it and I thought it made me sound intelligent. I am not even sure I would agree with that statement anymore though. Ignoring the individual or pretending that they don't exist and instead believing in some idealistic world where we could be happy in that instance quickly loses it's appeal as a topic once reality is realized. On top of that I am just flat out sick of politics.

Thank you for suffering my immature and petty comment earlier, regardless of whether I disagree with your opinion I respect you and hope to find a topic at some point that we can discuss more in depth. I know I kind of went and did what I said I wouldn't so if you have any rebuttal or response I will certainly acknowledge it, this wasn't any attempt to have the last word or anything. Have a good night/morning duder.

Tell me what's wrong with it.


It grossly oversimplifies issues. The idea that "Oh hai, we can all unite and solve all our problems simply with cans of aspartame or HFCS mixed with lab created colors, flavors, and effervescent water" is not only ridiculous, but it is sort of a slap to the face of people who have lost their lives fighting for peace.


And don't forget it also shows a Muslim who got very angry scrap booking and instead of blowing up the apartment, they got a camera out and started taking pictures...because that is what they do when they are angry.....right????

The "other" protesters would be the ones holding the "Coca Cola" brand cans and bottles and they would cause the violence in the streets, kind of like brainwashed Democrat supporters turned triggered snowflakes.

Not enough masks, pepper spray, looting, burning, beating, and blocking ambulances. It just didn't ring true to me.

Yeah, I can agree with you as well, sometimes discussion is nothing more than an opposition circlejerk

Again, I agree, China isn't a "Democracy" neither is Russia, Cuba etc, just like the NSDAP wasn't really a "socialist party"


I think once you abolish the states, and Capitalism and have a Stateless, moneyless society, the "Competition and oppression" of capitalism is removed, the power hierarchies and patriarchal structures are removed, so now you have people being able to have direct democracy, and better yet a community consensus.

if you look throughout history there have been cultures of egalitarian, "Gift-economics", even bartering etc that have worked


I don't want this to seem like a "Lecture" or I'm trying to get in the last word either

How about you tell me whats right with it [from a Pepsi perspective]

-Chris


funny how I didn't see Pepsi handing out cans of cola to the tea party protesters during the first part of the Obama election....those tea partiers should have been shown laughing and smiling and having a good time with their cans of Pepsi.

Obviously Pepsi got caught pushing the illuminatis 'fake revolution propaganda'....








fake world peace...the card reads "You know all of us together can outnumber the normals..!" or something...

Fortunately they're only so many controlled memes you can put into an advert before people notice "fake movements" have been programmed for them. In the last few months alone, we've seen the, BLM movement, Trump movement, Womens march/movement, 'Pizzagate' march/movement etc..



There are only so many agendas they can put in play ,before the sleeping masses start to wake up... ?

etc...

Its a great commercial because it has spirit something lacking in our age.

What's the beef over it.

76k thumbs downs?!?
Haven't seen a dislike to like ratio like this since the new Ghostbusters...
I was under the impression advertisements on TV were to sell stuff?
What exactly are they selling here?
What is the statement?
World peace in a can?
False advertise much?!?!

You'd think people would learn that the majority of consumers don't care the political or social stances of a company.
Much like religion in the classroom. Politics or social issues have no place in a PEPSI ad...
These SJW'ing commercials are clearly a sign they are on the ropes. They are desperate to hammer their indoctrination into the heads of anyone that will listen anymore. Before it was subtle now it is down right blatant in your face.

Indeed. They've come a long way since...


Now the 'Skip Marley - Lion' lyrics used have to expressley tell people what to do for the nwo global unity, peace, understanding...



[Pre-Chorus]
Yeah, if ya took all my rights away
Yeah, if ya tellin' me how to pray
Yeah, if ya won't let us demonstrate
Yeah, you're wrong
Yeah, if ya thinking I don't belong
Yeah, if ya hiding behind a gun
Yeah, if ya hoping we're gonna run, run

[Chorus]
We are the lions, we are the chosen
We gonna shine out the dark
We are the movement, this generation
You better know who we are, who we are

Yeah, if I

etc.

Anti-Capitalism isn't just "Socialism" there are different forms of Economic practices that could (should) replace it.

Russia, China, Cuba, Venezuela, places like those have never been true "Communist" or for that matter Socialist Nations, people are told to believe that is true, but reality is it's not.

Marxist, Leninist etc are not true forms of Communism, but the 'transitional State' in order to install Communism, which is why anarchist have fought and clashed with Marxist, Leninist etc for centuries.


Not that old canard, again: "real communism has never failed because real communism was never tried.."

Socialism/Communism: 100+ years of failure and human misery

I don't quite catch the advert.

Is she inviting all those people for a party and refreshments, or perhaps a permanent commune at the Kardashian mansion?

Don't wanna get busted?
Invite the cops to the party too.
I'm sure her mum won't be too happy, but maybe that's the point.

I only know her from the Kardashians.

Well at least she gets to keep her knickers on, unlike Kim.

Party on Kendall, but remember: you walk in the knickers of a giant.

Not true, communism has never been put in place. Russia, China, Cuba etc were not true communism because they still had the state controlling things, Lenin considered himself the 'Vanguard Party' the transitional 'dictator of the proletariat' and was supposed to transition into communism. without abolishing the State it's not true communism

Honestly the only thing that I am shocked and disappointed in is how terrible Kendalls butt looks. I wouldn't have ever guessed hers would end up so flat.
