Which in no way makes communism itself evil. Communism is a very noble idea, but it doesn't work in the real world because of people like Joseph Stalin.

I didn't say I wanted communism! Not once!


But you are defending communism, and trying to convince us that Stalin was not really communist, that Russia was not really communist, that Stalin was just a bad guy and it didn't reflect on Russian communism. That is one of the biggest freakin lies Ive heard, and that includes the whoppers Barack has been telling. You tell me why Stalin was not communist.

Then why tout the ideals of madmen who have used Communism to kill 100000000 ???

You say Stalin was mad,and abused his Power. You failed to say the others,Mao,Lenin,Etc......who used the same ideals,and gave the same results! Dead,those who criticized!


Mao is dead!!!! His brand of Communism is thriving though,warped to bring down the US. Guess what? There is No real freedom in China. You do know you cant talk about the Government over there,right? You do know what happens to those who question the leadership right? Jeez,you are so blind to it all.

Yes, the communists and socialists just take advantage of the history and press the guilt button to make people dance and jump to their solutions. Oh you killed the native inidans with your evil capitalism, you should make it this wonderful democracy instead and give reparations to make it all better and redistribute....


Actually it wasn't it was to show that even the golden boy of governments also has it's dark side.

If that is something that can be put gotten over then so should Stalin and Mao.

You're wrong about that btw.



More than 40 million farmers have been displaced from their land,[67] usually for economic development, contributing to the 87,000 demonstrations and riots across China in 2005.


en.wikipedia.org...

87,000 events of Chinese citizens questioning the government.

See the pattern that I find most interesting is you know that guy calling me a disinformation agent and a troll....the one insisting OWS wants to restore Constitutional rule...he shut up and gave up and left right when I asked him to cite which articles of the Constitution he wanted restored

You guys both possess impeccable timing...I give you that


Whose the one spouting propaganda again???? Listening.....

Read what I posted, I said that his evil actions were not communist ideals. I never said he wasn't a communist, he was just a jaded one. No, I'm not chasing around the internet for information on the obvious. It's really sad that so many Americans have no idea how little democracy we actually have. We already are at least a socialist state.

This is my only account here. I'm sorry if someone thinks you're "in the loop". Maybe you should consider reconsidering your ideas.

It doesnt work in the real world because it is a terrible idea, not becaise Stalin spoiled it for the rest of everybody. I guarantee you the tyranny was under Lenin too, just in a different way. Did you have a Marxist professor in college or something? Where did you get your ideas on this?

I like the idea of a communist state, with democratic elected leadership, and democratic decision making. Which is pretty much what our country is going towards.

Were talking about the 100000000 million killed under Communist rule.
All killings are wrong.

I am open to debate any of it,but last I checked we are talking Communism right?

Look, you have to know that communism is a Totalitarian system. That is part of what makes it what it is. I'm sorry you believe that idealistic nonsense people have fed you, but the truth is that communism is and always was a terrible authoritarian totalitarian dictatorship where people are told what to do, when to do it, and how to do it. You trade your freedom for a little bit of "security". You don't have to think, you just follow the rules set for you. It is the ultimate authoritarian system.
