When you think of death and destruction what comes to mind ? War, famine, some kind of deadly virus or bug ? What if I told you a simple idea that spreads like a virus and infects the minds of the people is absolutely the deadliest of them all. Listen and think about some of the parallels of what is being said ....THINK...

Probably second fiddle in this bit of history, but good guess.

Check your o-rings. There seems to be a leak.

Communism = Godlessness

Brutal ridged and unforgiving.

It angers me for the lives of grand children

And after all,
We're only ordinary men.

Sorry, it just popped into my head.

Whole premise of the movie is based on that.

Good movie too - I really liked it.

If you haven't seen it, do yourself a favor and watch. Leonardio DiCaprio is very good in the lead role, and the storyline is mind-blowing.

And the ending?

The only problem I have with the video is attributing this virus to Marx.

Karl Marx wanted a system without the bourgeoisie class. A system that enables the proletariat class to rule themselves.

Every example of Communism to date actually started a war between two ideologies within the bourgeois class. The winner, still a segment of the bourgeois class, would rule over the proletariat. The proletariat never becomes rulers of themselves.

What we see in the US today is the same as we saw in Russia and China. Today we call them Populist and Globalist. But make no mistake the populist want Capitalism which ensures the wealthy rule over the proletariat. The Globalists simply believe that by some superior intellect they should simply be able to assume rule over the proletariat for “the greater good”. But neither side actually believes in a system that is fully run by the proletariat without a bourgeois class.

What we have seen would be better classified as Bourgeois Socialism/Communism than Marxism. Marx was an idealist whose Utopian ideas may not even be possible. But I do believe that more power in the hands of the proletariat, through non violent democratic means, would be better for society as a whole.

The Bourgeois Communism that we have seen in Russia and China was merely one segment of the Bourgeois taking away everything from the rest of the Bourgeois class by force while completely ignoring the needs/wants of the proletariat. The Bourgeois communist believe that “the greater good” gives them the right to kill all opposition as the ends justifies the means. Which again has nothing to do with the proletariat ruling themselves.

True Marxism has never been tried, because it is likely impossible based on the psyche of man.

Ill bite.

To start, I just want to say this video has some very blatant cognitive dissonance going on, and definitely has that creepy cultish propaganda vibe.

Lets dig in...

I would say, failed attempts at Socialism/Communism... have actually for the most part not been Socialism/Communism at all.

Say a group of guys got together, called themselves a baseball team, but then actually played football together, and not baseball. Are they really a baseball team? Or... in right wing/republican/conservative speak... "is Antifa really anti-fascist or are they Fascist themselves?" caught some of you there...

China, Canada, Sweden, Denmark, The Netherlands, Norway, Finland... They have many socialist programs/policies ingrained into their government, and they seem to be doing pretty well... China is a powerhouse...

I think the argument for Communism/Socialism.. IS NOT.. "Hey.. lets do what Stalin/Lennon did"...

Its more of.. "How can we do Socialism/communism in a way that ISNT corrupt, and allows for a free democratic population?"

In my mind.. It can work when you marry capitalism and communism.. have a free market.. but give government a blank check.

Why do the worlds best aerospace engineers work for large aerospace companies?
Why do the brightest microbiologists work for private pharmaceutical companies?
Why do the best scientists work in the private sector?

I makes no sense that the government has to contact everything out through a private "middleman" company...

It makes 1000x more sense for the government to employ those people directly.

Do you think massive wealth inequality is a good thing? Redistribution of wealth from the government to the people EQUALLY can exist, in a good way.

There should not be a single homeless person, in a modernized first world rich country such as ours.

I would be tempted to say the Black Death but given that without full knowledge I may be wrong I will say instead the TORY's hahaha.

Seriously it was probably the black death but remember these factors, population density helps spread disease, sanitation, other carriers such as animal's (rats in the case of the black death probably) and how easy it was for the disease to jump between distant populations by trade and people travelling between these places.

Today if we had the black death for the first time our airlines would carry it to every corner of the world, it's rate of infection, incubation and spread would make the current crisis look tame by comparison, entire town's - maybe even some city's - were wiped out by it and vanished from the map in the following generations.

Estimates of percentage are based on wild assumption but the best guess historian's can come up with is that in Europe alone the black death killed between 30 to 60 percent of European's alive at the time.

On the criteria you are using I will have to agree with Phage though also capitalism has actually killed more people than communism (though over a greater period of time and communism kill's more in less time so is definitely more lethal in those term's).

There are however - remember - several different strains of capitalism and communism.

Corporate government controlling and owning Capitalism is both the enemy of democracy (buy's and own's the politicians and voters are only sheep) and of liberty (laws are made to favour the corporations and those that defend you the individual are eroded away).

Atheist Communism is a different kind of poison it takes everything from everyone even the people themselves are owned, human right's are waved in favour of the good of the state which through the hidden mechanism of capitalism that still functions in it's own way under communism eventually whittles itself down to the party and then ultimately the ruling council and it's divine emperor leader be that Stalin or Mao or whatever jumped up crook sits on the imperial throne and lives like an emperor while his people toil and starve.

Both system are crooked and bad for your health, unless you are a council member or a corporate board member.

Democracy is destroyed by both systems and in both a puppet parody of democracy becomes the normal, the people lose all voice in the grand scheme and are treated and manipulated as sheep.

What is the answer, socialism on the small scale work's, capitalism on the small scale work's so why not have both and democracy on the small scale is a beautiful thing so why not have that as well, just don't let them ruin it on you by letting corporations or massive political party's take it from you.

OR keep your capitalism Big, let your politician's be corrupt but add in better health care paid for by taxing the filthy rich for the poor workers, cut workers tax burden, increase there wages (which will stimulate your retail sector as well) and put the taxation back were it belongs on the filthy dirty thieving rich and corporations - and members of your senate and house of representatives non of them are poor are they and remember one man one vote should mean what it say's on the tin, good education for ALL to ensure your nation returns to it's democratic root's, an educated populace to choose wisely whom they want to represent them and what they want them to represent.

Not going to happen because if you are a tyrant even one in disguise in a fake democracy when you've got to keep them sheep under control so keep them dumb, divided, unhappy, uneducated and working for not enough to live on so that you can sit back and laugh at them while they struggle because you know, it keep's you and your pal's in charge and your fake argument's with one another are nothing compared to the real division in your society that is literally killing it and your nation slowly but surely like a cancer, use the wrong treatment and it will come back, the right treatment is to cure the source not the symptom but remember this is the nation of big pharma and curing the symptom not the cause is very big business.

If communism has a 99.96% survival rate then it’s definitely the deadliest most terrifying virus the world has ever seen!

We need to shut the economy, that’s gotta be done first and foremost
We need to BAN people from getting a haircut or going to a movie because those activities definitely spread the virus faster than anything.

We need to encourage mass gatherings for riots and destruction of our own neighbourhoods due to an imaginary oppression that isn’t actually occurring at all

And most of all, wear a mask. Or a burqa.

I mean, if such a huge mortality rate as 0.04% is facing us, why don’t we just refuse all avenues of treatment as well and openly attack the professionals who trial certain treatments?
That’s how you beat a virus.

Communism, some people actually defend it.

Not that it matters given the intellectual bar here at ATS but just for the record... viruses are not alive. Not now, not ever. They are simply an inanimate bit of proteins and nucleic acid. They cannot reproduce on their own.

haha, coming from an expert in doing the limbo I see.

Actually you are partially (mostly and the distinction between absolutely may as well not exist so I am splitting hairs) correct, a virus does not fit the definition of life because it is not able to replicate outside of a host cell, for it's reproduction it needs to hijack a cell and turn it into a viral factory, the infected cell will then produce copy's of the virus until it bursts and they spill out and infect surrounding cell's.

Interesting little blighters really, use complex molecular structures in the form of enzymatic protein's to pass through cell wall's and also to aid them in integrating there own genetic core into the cell's genetic material were it can then hijack the cell.

Despite this there are more of them than any other form of - life - on the planet and both include the kind we are familiar with and bacteriophage which infect and kill bacteria - just a hop, skip and a jump to infecting multicellular organism's.
