The "little people" are literally having to decide either to starve to death or eat their animals in socialist Venezuela. I would say that is a pretty big fail for socialism.


I think there is a misconception that Capitalism = no concern for the poor, Socialism = concern for the poor.

This is not true. I firmly believe that history has shown that there is no better system than capitialism to raise the standard of living for even the poorest people.

Of course there will always be income disparity and the poor. But how do the poor live is the important question.

Venzuela lowered income disparity by making almost everyone impoverished. Now the eat zoo animals and pets because they are starving.

I don't think good intentions and feelings about wanting equality make up for that.

I will advocate for the system of Capitalism that benefits the poor the most.

Yeah, actually Capitalism = Socialism = Crony Capitalism = Fake concern for the poor.

... an awkward silence followed by some scattered laughter.

Once the translation reached their ears.

US is a joke, Trump is the head clown and the world knows it.



Yes, we all know you are anti-American.

Anti war, corruption and what the us gubment has become. Nice try though.

What you call American is what I call the people on the s*** end of the stick. The warmongers are in charge, calling all those that aren't on their side "Anti American".

Those (un)American 'Interests', the warmongering, factory for war, Military Industrial Complex, the corrupt dog and pony show in Washington and on the TV, are UN AMERICAN.

Whose side you on anyway?

Favor? I don't bother with it since everything ends up being crony capitalism.

We get that you want to see the US of A collapse.

We see those that want endless war as responsible for the eventual collapse. Ever read anything from history about Empires? The gubment, Banksters, Pentagon, factories for war, and their minions are the ones behind that.

I don't work for or support any of that.

Do you? Are you part of the solution or part of the problem?

The joke is on you if you think that the world would be fine if the US collapsed.

Better off than under military occupation, after being invaded and their country, cities and gubment blown to bits.

Where you been?

True, but I still think your insight went beyond that.

No matter what a systems starting place is, or what happens to it, best of times, worst of times ... in the end it will be a matter of crony capitalism.

Every system collapses in time. From capitalism to communism through socialism ... wherever you are, in the end, it will be a matter of "he who has the gold rules."

Or high ground, or sharpest sticks, or whatever the given resource is.

Maybe it's late, but I think you just found Marxism's fatal flaw....

Sounds like nihilism.

I mean, say what you want about the tenets of National Socialism, Dude, at least it's an ethos.

The Nazi economy was a great example of crony capitalism.

Ha, yeah I know. I was quoting The Big Lebowski.

Nazis suck. Nihilism sucks too.

One of those "why didn't I bring my daughter this time" moments. Flawlessly implemented covfefe comes with a price, I think we're ready for the fake alien invasion by now.

Maybe there's an ufo fleet in that hurricane, too. Please let it be ufos!

Trump criticized socialism in Venezuela* has 'being faithfully implemented' which was met with an awkward silence followed by some scattered laughter. An individual began enthusiastically clapping which generated some applause in the room.

Trump did not appear amused.


Sounded like audience wasn't sharp enough intellectually to get what he was saying...


Agree with your statement, the entire fascist, socialist movement is intellectually factually dull.

I got the idea while reading the Fascist Manifesto.

When the government declares, as they did in the fascist manifesto, that it has a right, duty, to look out for itself in the same way that any individual or business does, I pretty much thought, that is what it looks like when the facade of serving the people drops. Of course that is what has always been behind mask.
