A true gentleman always drinks tea from fine china.
A simple tale about a boy who dreamed.
A soldier's story.
The rise of a hero.

Same, I get nothing if Mizal ranks higher than me.

I doubt it.

That went without saying.

>Of course, but research into the history of a country can't occur in one day. It's a slow process. And I've only begun my study of communism recently.
Then you still have time to get out.
>Bad shit in an inherent part of capitalism. Exploitation, oppression, and imperialism in an inherent part of capitalism. By agreeing with capitalism, you indirectly agree with King Leopold.
By that argument I could say murder, and oppression is an inherent part of communism and that by agreeing with communism you agree with Stalin and his purges and the Khmer Rouge.
>Communism is a utopian society which has never occurred yet. What you're meaning to say is socialism.
And it will never occur successfully.
>Fascism is simply capitalism in decay. Had Rosa Luxemburg won in 1918, the Holocaust would have never occurred.
Fascism is entirely different from capitalism, and you seem to be confusing the two. Fascism is the one based on imperialism and oppression, not capitalism.
And if France annexed the whole of Germany after WW1 the Holocaust would have never occurred. What's your point?
>As I said earlier, pioneering an entirely new society is a monumental task. Just by taking a glance at things, it seems like revisionism and counter-revolutionary forces are what drove most socialist states downwards. We see this in China, Russia, Vietnam, and every country that has had a communist rebellion.
If pioneering an entirely new society results in millions of deaths every time, maybe don't do it? "Revisionism" occurred because people realized that the current system was oppressive and kept them in poverty.
>Due due to class antagonisms, capitalism will not survive the test of time. Capitalism has only thrived thus far because it was better than feudalism.
I didn't know becoming communism made you a fortune teller.
>Also, what about Cuba? Besides the political repression, it's a decent socialist state.
Imagine you have a cabbage field filled with decayed ones, and you live next door to your neighbor, who's cabbage fields are well-worked and ripe. This is the equivalent of rooting through all your rotted cabbages, picking out one that is less decayed than the rest, and declaring it to be better than any of your neighbor's cabbages.

I think terming the killing of millions of people as a mere "fault" is an understatement.

I have, I've browsed some leftist subreddits and most of the leftist population does not like the Soviet Union, except for tankies.
The Soviet Union was a dictatorship that was- not democratic, had no free speech or press, was imperialistic, and caused millions of deaths.

First of all, filthy communist scum. You are worse than sea sludge.
Second of all, what's with the Soviet Union worship? Most communists consider it to be bad even by their standards.

Hillary, who is by no means a very moral person, had decades of experience in politics. Trump has never held public office before in his entire life, why would he be the better choice?
Steve demands attention! on 4/16/2017 10:10:24 PM
How was Trump the lesser evil?

Nah, he updated his profile.
