What is communism? by Atamolos What is communism? by Atamolos
"Communism is seeing the suffering of your fellow human beings and feeling empathy for them, then recognizing the system perpetuating this suffering and making according changes to end it."

The quote is by me.

The second picture was taken in Bombay, India.
The fourth picture was taken at a socialist/progressive/anti-Islamist protest in Turkey.

According to me, Communism is rather a world-wide conspiracy for the overthrow of civilization and for reconstitution of society on the basis of arrested development, of envious malevolence, and impossible equality!

"Communism: Enemy of the people. Socialism: Enemy of the people. Capitalism: The people."
-Samuel Fuller
He wasn't wrong.

Appeal to authority. Just because somebody important once said something does not make it right.

Perhaps, if you're looking for discussion, you should outline your position rather than applying speculative quotes in an abstract manner.

My position: No government owns people. Period. No one has the right to force their will upon others. Period. If I make something and I trade it for something else, that is my effort and my profit, not some socialist liberal's who never lifted a finger to help anyone in his life. Every time one of you kids buys into the commie Koolaid that your elementary teachers indoctrinated you with, you help to destroy the greatest democracy ever known to history.
Every totalitarian government started out with the same lies, promising communism and socialism. Obama and his regime are doing it right now.

Just look what socialism and communism brought to the world. Stalin, Hitler, Mao, the list goes on. The worst capitalism brought about was Clinton. There is a pretty big rift between those names.

And there was nothing abstract about Fuller. Perhaps you should research his life. The great irony of his statements regarding the evils of the world is the fact that Tim Robbins asked the questions. If you don't comprehend the relevance of that, then you have a lot more research to do.

You are taking the fantasy of those wishing to enslave you at face value, playing the fat hound. I'll stay a lean wolf.

If you that communism is pro-government ownership, then it's no wonder the rest of your argument is about as coherent as your opening statement.

Firstly "socialist liberal" makes no sense.  If you're a socialist, then you aren't a liberal.  The two are mutually exclusive.  You might as wel say "socialist conservative" or "socialist fascist".

Secondly, I wasn't indoctrinated to be pro-communism.  I was indoctrinated to the pro-capitalism.  However, when I got old enough to think for myself, I quickly saw the flaws in the current system and found an alternative ideology.  You're the one wolfing down American propaganda.

Thirdly, America is not a democracy, it's a republic.  The people have no real say in government, or which leaders are selected.  The electoral college does that for them.

Fourthly, Obama is nowhere near socialist.  Ask literally any socialist and they will tell you the same.  You've simply adapted an ideology that you don't understand and have been brainwashed to dislike and used it as a blanket political insult.

Fifthly, Stalin, Mao, etc, were dictators.  There have been hundreds of dictators in the past two centuries, most of who were not communists, and they caused just as many, if not more deaths.

Sixthly, Hitler was neither a socialist nor a communist.  He was a fascist, and a German nationalist conservative.

Seventhly, Clinton was not the worst US president.  Bush started two wars and under him, the deficit skyrocketed, even more than it did under Reagan.  But even Bush wasn't the worst president, that title probably goes to Andrew Jackson for his massacre of the Native Americans.

Eigthly, capitalism has brought about far worse than bad US presidents.  The Chilean dictator Pinochet, the Dutch East India company's ability to invade and occupy India and Indonesia, the mass deportation of African American slaves for a span of four centuries, Chinese wage slavery during the construction of the Continental Railroads, the list goes on.

Ninthly, capital is all about people being able to control others through the greatest commodity and source of influence within its system:  capital.

In short, don't throw around political terms when you don't know what they mean, and don't judge something you don't understand.

LOL! You gave me a good laugh with your inane ramblings. Yes, yes, I understand nothing. After all, I only have an IQ of 168 and have been studying politics, history, theology and anthropology since before Nixon was in office.

You believe in communism, so it shouldn't surprise me that you are incapable of comprehending what I said. Hell, you don't even know what capital means.

Enjoy being eaten by the morlocks!

Well that was short lived, LOL! 

Sadly, our country is full of people like this. Exactly like this.
