Not a Commie but if you are gonna do a numbers game, then you have to consider capitalism when the action of a single man and his want for rubber killed an estimated 10 mil in five yrs.

The Man Who Killed 10 Million People & Personified Everything That Is Wrong With Colonialism

This was just one geographical area on one continent, done in the name of capitalism, so yes commies have a lot to answer for, but so do the Laissez-faire capitalist.

Thats not capitalism that is imperialism where a king owns the country. For example even in Britain today money is payed to the crown.

And this isn't the first time imperialism cost deaths. Problem is their is different forms and they dont have a common thread other then a monarch os in charge. Monarchys are only as good as the king in charge. Some were great others caused suffering.

That looks like Big Government (tyranny) and Cronyism.

Death by capitalism would be if the People start killing fellow competitors to increase their own wealth. Once you involve the government giving advantages to one group over another it isn't laissez-faire capitalism.

*****Colonialism is one of history’s greatest evils. It decimated local populations, enslaved millions, destroyed cultures, created divisions and fissures which, years later, exploded into civil wars, partitions, and economic chaos.*****

One culture forcing their will on a more primitive technological race of beings is all part of history. These are invaders into your homeland. If you look at colonialism after stripping away all the high sounding B.S. the usual reason is for commodities or or slave labor from those being conquered .. In other words the conquered had something the big boys wanted..

Conquers....... moving in to your backyard.... throughout history is usually very bad for the locals. In the past it might take several years but the locals finally throw off the yoke of their masters in a bloody uprising. But throw off they do if there are any left !

But the thread is about communism and socialism.. As one of the replies to the thread mention what happens when there are no jobs just robots ? In that case I can see a form of socialism.... probably after the population is whittled down to some manageable level by the PTB.

Totalitarian leaders not communism caused those deaths.

Laissez-faire capitalism is no picnic. Poverty has probably killed more people than any other cause ever.

And totalitarian left wings leaders who kill people ARE not communism. Why do you only consider left wing hyperbole as invalid but not right wing hyperbole?

OK how about an elected Communist leader and his government.. I am speaking of China present day.


Muslims forced to drink alcohol and eat pork in China’s ‘re-education’ camps, former inmate claims
Muslims were detained for re-education by China‘s government and made to eat pork and drink alcohol, according to a former internment camp inmate.

Omir Bekali, one among perhaps a million people reportedly arrested and held in mass re-education camps, said he was detained without trial or access to a lawyer and forced to disavow his beliefs while praising the Communist Party.

Mr Bekali, a Kazakh citizen, said he contemplated suicide after 20 days in the facility – which itself followed seven months in a prison.

Since spring last year authorities in Xinjiang region have confined tens or even hundreds of thousands of Muslims in the camps, including some foreign nationals. One estimate put the figure at a million or more.

A US commission called it the “the largest mass incarceration of a minority population in the world today” while a leading historian called it “cultural cleansing”.


I wonder how long before people in the west go to reeducation camps before prison ? Rumblings in Europe already, No ? Gotta be careful of what you say or be declared a person who produces hate speech and who must be dealt with...

China has everyone beat in the control of actions and thought ...they even rate their citizens with a score. Gotta love their ways of doing things because there is no one to stop them..

Gotta love a site where people actually defend Communism. There far too many brain dead people that were “educated” in America’s institutions of “higher learning”.

Communism is the crushing of the human spirit and potential. It is the antithesis of freedom and self-reliance. Seriously, get a grip people.

The democrats aren't a socialist party you know this right?

You wanna know what I hate, when people pile drive misinformation about a political party so much they think it's real. You honestly think ANY political party in the US would get even a fighting chance in a election if they were socialist?

This is it. America really is screwed, republicans have spread so much BS in the last two years there's no going back, people actually believe just because left leaning and centrist people voted for democrats they are a were a left leaning platform, they weren't in fact they were most right leaning with left leaning ideas but with conservative values.

Also to add to the topic, Venezuela is in a crisis because of capitalism, and dumb government, not because of socialism, they took out massive loans they could not pay back. They were in way to far over their head to get involved with blood sucking monsters in the oil game.
Socialism works fine if you don't let a crazy person run the nation and turns it into communism, or you get out side influences lending 'help'.


You are going to have to explain to me how you can be “right leaning with left leaning ideas but with conservative values”. That premise is a complete contradiction. Don’t get me wrong, not taking sides, but the Democratic party, daily, pushes a Socialist agenda, starting with its’ Congressional leaders...so, from the top. As always, less Republican, Less Democrat, More Constitution.

Back to OP. Just seeing the numbers that died (and I’m sure millions more suffered) because of what human beings can do to one another is staggering...and sad. While no political system will ever be perfect, I would take my chances with Capitalism over all the rest. At least you generally don't get killed for asking questions of those in power.

Because the political spectrum is something to just place ideas and to dumb it down for people to understand. It's not black and white.

Ideas cannot kill people.

Communism has never killed a single person. Neither has Capitalism, or Fascism.


That sounds like some FOS college course. Someone had the idea to start the killing...someone in the power structure.. Obey my dictates/laws or die by my enforcers.. That is why I like "no one rules if no one obeys"...



Yes and they were killed in the process of enforcing the ideology. And then for years in our major educational institutions they were all the rage......Joe, Vlad ect superhero status at tax payer charge. Makes on wonder just how deep and large the vortex and madness go hold in a constitutional culture.

What is colonialism ?? Isn't it for maximum profits??? Isn't it a form of extreme hostile take over?? a monarchy can be a capitalist entity as well as a republic or a democracy the East and West India companies were formed for just that, maximizing profits, and if Laissez-faire capitalism is roughly defined as any and everything goes as long as the share holders are happy ,don't you think the human cost under such a system would be equally horrible.

But in a contest on a large scale, Capitalism will beat Communism because of the greed = innovation factor..what that dude said on Wall St. Is true ..greed is good.
However on a micro or village level communism works, ask anyone who have ever been to a Kibbutz.
