Communism might work but only in a small, largely homogeneous country, with a benevolent Head of State, of which Stalin wasn't an example.:neutral:
Throughout history every generation produced a legion of fools and parasites who believed that a benign totalitarian government is possible.
To roastpork: Communism/Socialism never works:


First off, it'd be really good for you to precisely define what you mean by "communism." Let's start there.
To imaginethat: You should know the answer since you read all my messages. If not, research them for your answer.

Indeed, "communism" isn't wholesale consuming the Earth's finite resources while escalatingly polluting the environment as it depends upon an economic system that is predicated on endless growth. Capitalism is doing that.
To imaginethat: Communism is a form of government where parasites absorb the wealth created by an economic system called capitalism.

The fashionable attempt to equate communism and Nazism is in reality a moral and historical nonsense. Despite the cruelties of the Stalin terror, there was no Soviet Treblinka or Sobibor, no extermination camps built to murder millions. Nor did the Soviet Union launch the most devastating war in history at a cost of more than 50 million lives - in fact it played the decisive role in the defeat of the German war machine. Lindblad and the Council of Europe adopt as fact the wildest estimates of those "killed by communist regimes" (mostly in famines) from the fiercely contested Black Book of Communism, which also underplays the number of deaths attributable to Hitler. The real records of repression now available from the Soviet archives are horrific enough (799,455 people were recorded as executed between 1921 and 1953 and the labour camp population reached 2.5 million at its peak) without engaging in an ideologically-fuelled inflation game.

No offense, but you are not a source whom I'd research.

You, and people who think like you, are the reason our Earth is being overpopulated and raped for monetary profit. Your kind is responsible for the endless warfare required to maintain an empire. Socially, you and your kin haven't progressed from the days when rubbing two sticks together to make fire was the news of the day.

You refuse to look at what humankind is doing to the Earth which sustains all life. Not only do you refuse to grow and progress, you laugh at people who are ready to leave behind the days of empire, conquest, and blood-soaked ground, while you do your best to make it difficult if not impossible for them to do so.

The dismal state of humankind may be laid at the feet of those who live by the law of the jungle. those who declare people whose backs bear the bootprint of empire and exploitation "parasites," as you and those like you declare your love for a system that requires continuous growth on a finite planet. In other words, you refuse to let go of a system that guarantees catastrophe.

Frankly it's you and people who think like you who resist the necessity to modify capitalism from the system that serves always-expanding empires to a system that addresses current realities. I understand that you and folks like Rush are having a difficult time accepting reality, and I wish some way existed to ease your pain.

But your pain is the pain felt by dinosaurs and other species who simply couldn't adapt to a changing environment and died, the difference between them and you being: You choose to refuse to adapt.

I replied:

So how else would you find the answer if not in my messages?

You, and people who think like you, are the reason our Earth is being overpopulated and raped for monetary profit.
To imaginethat: You do not know what I think. I do know that you and your kind would legislate population controls until you kill 3/4ths of the world’s population.
