The philosophy of Socialism/Communism is not perfect. How can it be perfect to allow the STATE to make most decisions for the people?
How can it be perfect that a few people in power who are claimed to "work for the people" have ALL CONTROL?
Let me put it as an anology.
Have any of you watched the movie "Equilibrium"?
The movie is set in the future, after mankind had fought another third world war. One man which is called throughout the movie as "father" and is
the highest leader of those who are in power, came to the conclusion that much of the problem in the world are "feelings", and since mankind cannot
survive another world war then "feelings" must be outlawed. This is done by people taking frequently a chemical suppressant that doesn't allow
them to feel anything. People just follow every law, even if many of the laws are wrong.
People who do not take the chemical become outlaws and are prosecuted by policy/military, and by the highest representativees of the law the
"clerics," who are trained specialists in "gun katas" which in the movie is a new form of Martial Art using dual guns. The people not taking the
chemical suppressant are charge with "having feelings" and are eventually disposed of by execution.
Anyways, what happens is that all those people taking the chemical become "robots" just so they don't have feelings of anger, hate, etc. But the
thing is the chemical used to suppress these bad feelings also suppresses good feelings, which not only turns people into robots, but they become
apathetic, and don't feel love for anything.
In truth that is one of the goals of Socialism/Communism, to suppress individualism, destroy all semblance of spirituality and transform people into
"robots." But of course for the most part this doesn't happen, as most people continue to be individuals.
Socialism/Communism sorry to say will never work. I have seen, and heard how some westerners who are idealists, and who have never in their entire
lives experienced the goal of Socialism, or "scientific Socialism"/Communism, and they continue to "believe" Socialism will solve all problems in
the world when the contrary has occurred.
A lot of members in this website LOVE to bash "Capitalism". They blame Capitalism for the Vietnam war, and for all evil, and wars that have been
fought around the world, and these same people LOVE to IGNORE the fact that "SOCIALIST" nations were behind many if not most of these wars.
In order to fight a war you need at least two oponents, and the one force trying to suppress Capitalism, and freedom has always been
The problems in the United States started when American presidents decided to start transforming the REpublic into a Socialist paradise, starting with
ex-President Woodrow Wilson who gave power over the economy of the Republic of the United States to the Socialist elites/feds. Now these people are
claiming that to "help the economy and the nation the Republic must embrace more Socialism"?....
If you want to experience the goal of Socialism/Communism just send me a U2U and I can make some arrangements with my family in Cuba so you can live
with them and see how good "Socialism/Communism" is.
You think what this movie represents is not what those who want to implement Socialism/Communism want? You need to watch again the video interview of
the FBI agent who infiltrated "Weather Underground" and see that these Socialists bastards were even making plans on how to execute as many as 25
million Americans who won't accept Socialism/Communism... And to them these executions would also be an example, and a show of force against ALL
Not only that, but what is happening to the Republic of the United States has been the slow transformation into Socialism, and now through the Obama
administration we are seeing these changes happening faster, and these "changes" are not good in the least.
