A couple of questions to those communist here that chose to not live in China,Cuba,etc because they don't consider them to b a TRUE communist
Your point is mute because those places are not communist period.
Cuba was never communist, and was never meant to be.
The revolution was to rid the island of the Batista regime, and the capitalist exploitation from America. The only reason the US called it communist
is because they accepted help from Russia after America refused. That is what upset the US and started the embargoes, which are the real reason for
Cuba's problems as they rely heavily on imports.
The Cuba problem has nothing to do with communism. They just didn't do what the US wanted, and that was to exploit the workers.
In fact the reason so called 'communist' countries were demonized was not because they were 'communist', they weren't, it was because they were
economically isolationist. The Wests capitalists were hell bent on globalism and those countries, along with some middle eastern nations, stood/stand
in the way. You see capitalism has to continually create new markets in the search for profit. The harder it is the make profit the more ruthless
capitalism will be.
I felt this deserved its' own thread. There is a large amount of truth contained in the above-quoted post; truth which a lot of the American
conservatives on this forum, are most likely not going to want to look at.
It's been known for a while now, by those of us who are paying attention, that the American government has been utilising a long line of false
scapegoats and foreign bogeymen, in order to justify profit-generating wars. Communist Russia under Stalin was one of the first of these; currently,
the scapegoat is Islam. I've read speculation that eventually, it's going to be extraterrestrials as the last one.
Part of the point of utilising these scapegoats, is that it gives the government the opportunity to get rid of literally anyone it doesn't like,
simply by labelling said individuals as being affiliated with the scapegoat. So if the government didn't like you back in the 1950s, you were
accused of being a Communist sympathiser. These days if the government doesn't like you, you'll be accused of being a potential terrorist or a
Muslim. The name is the only thing that's really changed; apart from that, the con being used is exactly the same.
Hence, what has also been done to any country in the world which doesn't do what the American government thinks they should. They're either
considered Communists, terrorists, or a "rogue state." You're not allowed to be autonomous, or exist outside of the globalist nightmare.
