...then when finally everybody says 'F this I'm aint paying for all that BS and the global human suffering it causes'...



Are you talking about communism or laissez faire capitalism?

All systems of self-governance suck because people suck.

People realize that blaming communism alone was a waste of time.

They can get screwed no matter what you call a government, unless that government is in a state of constant of progression that learns from its mistakes.

People associate communism.. with communism with dictators.

I think communism could work if it was a true Democratic communist set up without a central leader, and instead, an elected council with equal representation.


OMG another one.. "if only communism was done right !"

C,mon.... Communism ALWAYS leads to dictators. How many failures in history do you need to see?


Dictator or oligarchy, what difference does it make? Human nature is evil and corrupt. There is no form of checks-and-balances that cannot be subverted. I'm not sure there is any possible way to have any form of government "done right". It seems humans are subconsciously pro-choice on every level. Freedom and Liberty rule! Everyone want's to be a gangster.

Sorta like "If only capitalism was done right..."


Capitalism is what Communist party members in China actually employ to make their lives better. They only pretend to go along with their party to keep from being deep six'd.
Not even modern day commies believe in the farce of communism being a good thing because they know it isn't. I have spent enough time in China myself to know that this is true. The communists there serve a monster that they don't even know how to kill.

The monster is fear, and no one wants to take the first stab at that monster and risk being singled out and destroyed, so they all obey the silent but deadly rule of the communist monster. That monster also has many tentacles that are run amok, and they consist of morally bankrupt individuals with the power to enforce and to condemn, and to destroy any threat to the monster of their rule.

I really thought the 2016 election was going to be the year the anarchists finally got organized. Boy was I wrong!

Isn't that how EVERYTHING works? Such an old and stupid talking point.

Enough to get just one right... just like every other advancement in the history of mankind.

Okay so how many tens of millions have to be slaughtered by their own governments to get you your pie in the sky fantasy utopia land? Ergo, how many hundreds of millions have to be brutally subjugated under the iron fist of totalitarianism in such pursuits?

Has it ever occurred to you that whether or not its Nazi's or Communists when its totalitarianism its all the same in the end?

Please do send us all a postcard from the gulag, yo!

I can't even believe
that you replied to this
semi accurate "National Enquirer"
style goody!

Your "Active Measures"
are still in effect I gather.
Or are you just slumming?

HooHaa!
