I dont get what you mean.

Are you calling me masses? Or are you refering to the many stupid posts I got from the masses?

There were some good posts too. I liked hearing from the Europeans at the end of my thread.

But if you are calling me stupid,you should be more clear. Also,bring it. what do you disagree with and why?

Edit- i see by your uninspired first post that you are calling me masses. Clever


And American and proud? Proud of what? You rip on Europeans when the US economy is an unfixable mess? Are you some kind of corporatist or what?

I'll remind you of a quote from former UK Prime Minister Margret Thratcher:

"The trouble with socialism is that eventually you run out of other people's money."

Just because you keep hearing that, and keep saying it, doesn't make it true.

There's so much propaganda for capitalism and against socialism in America,
There's no widepsread pro-socialism propaganda.

Sorry but the people defending capitalism tooth and nail are the brainwashed people. You are more enslaved and have less freedoms under a capitalist economy, than you'd ever be under a socialist economy. You don't even know you're a slave.

You are not worth the effort because frankly most socialists like yourself are incredibly ignorant to world history and what socialism leads to. You also appear to have no clue what capitalism is and how the world as we know it is no longer following capitalist ideals. What people like you love to do is pick and choose what you want to read and respond to and continue to live inside an ignorant shell unable to take an objective view. So for this reason I won't waste my time on you. Go take some history classes and see where socialism has lead the world throughout history. In fact the only system that has ever worked and prospered the public was capitalism. We no longer have capitalism in the USA. We have a quasi fascist socialist government which likes to imagine it's capitalist. This is why so many are duped into thinking socialism is better than capitalism as if the "capitalist system" has failed. This couldn't be farther from the truth. What has failed capitalism is the infiltration of socialism and fascism.

And right now the most successful country is China....it sort of negates everything you just said.

And what's going on now is exactly what capitalism is supposed to do. Wealth is supposed to be concentrated in the hand of a few people. That's where capitalism always leads.
What are these capitalist ideals you speak of?

It's funny, for calling someone else ignorant, you sure are very ignorant.
We don't have anything close to a socialist government. There is a huge wealth disparity. 10% own 80% of the wealth.
In socialism there is no wealth disparity. What we have in America is the complete opposite of socialism.
Saying our government is socialist shows just how ignorant you are.


not to mention socialism is a very new idea. Saying look where it's lead people throughout history is very naive.
Plus Marx suggested it be implemented in a developed industrial society for it to be effective. It hasn't once been done that way. Anyone who actually knows what socialism is about who lived back then could've told you those countries would fail with socialism.

OK, did not ask to condemn, but to know your mindset. True Progressives are a tiny part of the population and many who call themselves that are just old fashioned leaches. You seem serious about your belief.

Have you considered the history of the many attempts at this while forming your ideology?

Which systems lead to progress and prosperity for the most for instance? To date that has never been a Socialist Society.

The reason is simple enough. If we wake in the morning knowing that a Nanny State will take care of your needs, you have no motivation to do anything meaningful.

If we work for the State and cannot be fired, we (Humans) take the path of least resistance. The end result is apathy in the workplace and in our lives.

The reason it will not work any better in the future than it has in the past is we are Human.

The end result will always be a self-described intellectual elite who reserve a lavish lifestyle for themselves, believing they deserve it. They see no problem with letting the illiterate masses live on their handouts, since their narcissistic attitudes won't allow them to see the value in anyone they see as inferior. True Marxists always see everyone else like Cattle to be herded and controlled as they are incapable of making their own decisions.

That always leads to a lapdog class, sometimes called Party Members who serve the Masters directly and get special rewards to insure their loyalty, while the illiterate masses are completely controlled out of fear they might rise up against the elitist Masters.

Each new generation of Progressives, being their very nature is that of a narcissist, thinks the reason it always fails is they personally were not in control. They completely ignore the fact that without Freedom, no matter what risks it presents, The Human Animal with either sink into a state of apathy and depression or rise up and fight back against the oh so kind, handouts from the Progressive Marxist Elite.

I will grant you that a system like you describe can work well in small populations, but it breaks down quickly as the size of the population expands. In a small community the lazy butts and the criminals are easy to deal with, but in a large population they drag the whole concept down. For instance the alcoholism, horrible work habits, horrible quality work when they did bother and apathy that destroyed the old Soviet. Standing in line for hours for a daily needs tears people down. Being free to create and free to excel by working hard build us up. Living like sardines in small spaces deemed good enough by the elite from their ivory towers destroys motivation.

Equality is a false concept and always has been. Part of society will never participate no matter how grandiose the idea's. Those who would excel given a chance will stagnate under a system where there is no reward for going the extra mile. That has always been the downfall of the Marxist ideal.

Common sense dictates you look to history for truth and you will find the system we had in the Western World post WW2 is the most successful to date. Reality is that to go back to that would have the same net result. You have to ignore truth to think that the systems that brought their people down and made them dependent on the State work. They simply do not and history has proven it true over and over again.

I am surprised you realize Hitler was a Progressive, albeit a mad one. Progressives generally deny he shared ideology with Stalin and Mao.

Just working for the State leads a person down the path to corruption and giving the State all power, always ends up the same way.



Well said.

I dont care what we call it. We will destroy Crony Capitalism,we will destroy State Capitalism,we will destroy Corporatism and destroy Imperialism.

Socialism this way comes.


Fixing a problem with the same means that created the problem, will never fix it. You've got to let go of all that anger.

EINSTEIN was a Socialist



Keep in mind, people, Socialism can take MANY forms/flavors. Some are tyrannical, but not all (or even most). Do your homework and stop regurgitating the mainstream right-wing propaganda. Most of you didn't even know what Socialism was until a few years ago when the right-wing really started attacking it... and most of you still don't know what it is.

Personally, I'm in favor of Social Democracy within the system and different forms of Anarcho-Socialism without the system.

Once again, do your homework or STFU. I've done mine, and you cannot put a happy face on Capitalism unless you compare it to feudalism/mercantilism that it replaced. Though, I think most who support Capitalism don't even know what Adam Smith wrote about it. I recommend you re-read his writings as well... even HE calls for humane regulation and redistribution, as there are natural injustices within a strong Capitalist system.

And Hitler was fighting against these Imperialist Bankers. If Germany had won the world would be a better place.

That quote of yours says all I need to know. I didn't think there was anyone left in the world that wished Hitler had won the war. I guess there still are. I thought that statements like yours were actually considered a crime in Europe.
Please don't bother to respond to me, as it would be a waste of your time and mine. I have no desire to talk to someone that believes Hitler was great.

Perhaps I am wrong, but if I understand your post correctly, socialism is your real enemy. Socialism has created the policies that are bankrupting Europe, and the policies that will soon bankrupt the United States. Are you advocating communism?

I know there are a few pages but please skim them so we dont have to repeat things.

Your comment actually makes my head hurt. Europe is capitalist. This is not hard.

And Europe will bankrupt the United States???? Are you freaking kidding me? Im sure you are just messing with me hey.

I am a National Socialist. Whatever you are trying to imply says more about you than me.
When did I say Hitler was great? Please dont lie.

And here is my thread on National Socialism. It works.

And dont post if you dont want a response.

Perhaps you should reread. Socialist policies have created financial issues in Europe and the US, not capitalism. I would wager that your head hurts because of the amount of focus required to light your dimb bulb!
