Communism by xX-Abaddon-Xx Communism by xX-Abaddon-Xx
Before i get a bunch of capitalists bitching to me about how i shoud burn in hell for supporting communism, i don't. As a matter of fact i'm criticizing it (if you look carefully at the smaller print at the bottom of the image). Also, i have no idea why i worded it in that particular way

The hilariously sad thing is that America was probably the only country that could have had a Socialist/Communist Revolution and actually have things end up well in the end thanks to our strong Democratic foundations (Fun fact about actual Communism, not Stalinism- Democracy is a MUST)

We don't have very Democratic Institutions. Compared to other countries our governments are fairly undemocratic, especially with the Bill of Rights taking Precedence over popular will. The founders actually had serious concerns of Democracy and can be attributed many quotes describing the flaws and dangers of Democratic governance. The only reason they went with a Democratic Republic is they didn't see a better alternative and even then only landowners could vote at first. They were pretty strong believers in property rights as well and didn't care much for economic equality. If it wasn't for slavery and taxes then it would probably be Property instead of Pursuit of Happiness after Life and Liberty.

Hey mate wanted to let you know ill be using your image for a pro communist poem i wrote. Even though i recognize that you do not support communism i think your image gives a fair description of it. (though the genocide might be too strong its overtly true to this date)

I will link and credit you in description but if you still have a problem then reply to this comment and it will be taken off.

marx specifically said that it didn't relinquish ownership or the ability to acquire goods, merely its goal was to prevent the exploitation of humanity in reaching those goals ensured through nationalization of major sectors.

Ha ha this is great, at first I was like here we go another Commie, and then I read the Warning and though, just great. Give people power and someone WILL abuse it. Communism is no different than the feudal system. With the exception of the pompous idiots who think they are being selfless and doing the world a favor.
The thing I hate about communist and socialists in rich countries is the self righteous attitudes many tend to have. They think they are selfless for supporting that cause, but what does that cause promise? That the product of someone else labor will be guaranteed to them regardless of what they contribute, or that they don't care enough to give to charity so they have government force others to give to charity, but will take credit for the charity the government forces people to do. Look at all the socialist in OWS demanding the student loan debt they agreed to take on be paid for with someone else money. The worst greed is taking something you didn't earn.

Thanks for creating this! There are too many idiots (mostly lefties) her on Deviantart who praise communism. They argue that all those communist dictatorships (Stalin, Mao, Castro) were not real examples of communism, as true communism champions freedom. Never mind that the main tenets of communism (as you display here) denies individual rights and property rights—both which are crucial to freedom. Communism demands that all wealth be held in common and redistributed. In order to do that, you need a totalitarian state. So yes, communism, taken to its logical conclusion, does lead to a dictatorship.

You silly goose ! Communism, for now, has only lead to dictatorship, that's true ! But it ain't a reason to give up the belief. Marx invented such magnificent ideals, it would be a shame to depreciate communism. We have to learn from history and stop associating these dictators to Communism, because they only used a pale copy of it to found their regime. If there is a system that provides peace, tolerance and equality, it is communism. I'm not saying that we should follow every strict law from the Manifesto, but we should inspire ourselves from these beautiful ideals to build a new society, based on union. I think that History has shown us enough dramatic events to aware us of the risks it involves.

If communism always has lead to dictatorship, we should give the fuck up already.

To demonstrate how much of a fucking idiot you sound, I shall make a similar comment about another form of tyranny:

"You silly goose! Fascism, for now, has only lead to dictatorship, that's true! But it isn't a reason to give up the belief. Hitler and Mussolini invented such magnificent ideals, it would be a shame to depreciate fascism. We have to learn from history and stop associating these dictators to fascism, because they only used a pale copy of it to found their regime. If there is a system that provides peace, purity, and equality, it is fascism. I'm not saying we should follow every strict law from Mein Kamf, but we should inspire ourselves from these beautiful ideals to build a new society and race, based on nature. I think that history has shown us enough dramatic events to aware us of the risks it involves."

Fascism, communism, both forms of tyranny. Both treat human beings as replaceable parts in a machine, or a cell in an organisms, with no individuality. Both kill work ethic and everything that makes humanity special. Both criminalize or bastardize religious beliefs for their own gain. Both are cults of the state. Both are diseases that should be eradicated for the good of mankind. But fascism is to communism as the common cold is to cancer.

Wow, you copied/pasted my text changing a few words...you're such a genius, I can't but kneel before your virtuosity...
This debate is, as we already know, as sterile as it can possibly be, since none of us is ever going to change his mind on the question, so I'll just remind you a few things. You must be american (or from another narrow-mindedness preaching country) to just spit at what you call "communism" like you did. As I'll repeat (though I'm almost sure it's gonna be useless), communism is only what was evoked in Marx's book (that you must have read if you have such precise ideas on the question, or you definately need to learn to read), which is to say ideas about peace, sharing and a society based on putting in common all resources. If you call the dramatic events caused by monsters such as Stalin illustrations of communism, then you haven't understood a single word of what communism is.
Now, maybe you should start to make the difference between sovietism and communism (after 23 years, should be about time, don't you think ?).
And if you believe that the capitalist state in which we live is better on all points than the state evoked in the Manifesto, maybe you should open your eyes as well, on all the fucked up shit that happens on this ravaged planet. Because the capitalist system is not going to solve the problem.

Karl Marx was a misanthrope. I've seen the ten planks, and when put into the proper context, they are disturbing. What Karl Marx wanted to do was dethrone God, and destroy everything that made humanity special. No free will (except to break God's laws), no individuality, no right to property, not even the most sacred property of all, conscience. Nothing is sacred under communism, all is public domain.

It's apparent from EVERY SINGLE FUCKING COMMIE REVOLUTION that Karl Marx had an insufficient understanding of human nature. He talked about a dictatorship of the proletariat, which would eventually wither. DICTATORSHIPS DON'T WITHER!!! They only do when the people force it to, and you can forget about a stateless society. Human nature makes it impossible, and it never changes. It's been the same yesterday, today, and forever. Maybe a libertarian society with limited government to check human nature would be more than slightly better, even though redistribution of wealth is impossible without a large state doing it.

This may be baffling to you, but in America, we earn our wealth. We don't redistribute it because of a couple of crybabies whining about how life and society isn't fair. Seriously, the only people who support communism are either drug addled hippies, tyrants, or misinformed people who are paving the road to hell. Whatever problem is on earth, you can bet your life that communism will fuck it up even more.

Hey, Stalin was nothing but a goddamn dictator that founded a state of terror through Russia, you moron. It's because of assholes like you that Communism has lost its credibility. Stalin did NOT use Communist ideals as they were clearly enounced in the Manifesto. He turned it into a Constituion of Domination and Fear.

Hey, I'm a commy too. Stalin was a dictator, a tyrant and a monster. Of course, he initiated a part of industrialization and building of some infrastructures. But what he did with the Gulag and other forms of totalitarianism was a complete load of rubbish. He wasn't a Communist, or any other form of socialist. He was a sick fuck.
The only person people should remember are Marx, Engels, and to a certain extent Lenin.

I do not have any respect for you whatsoever if you cannot even admit to the possibility that there have been numerous lies spread about Stalin. As a supposed Communist, you of all people should at least realize the importance of ATTEMPTING to research further, and questioning something as major as Stalin. But clearly, you're a fool and I'll have nothing more to do with you. Examine the link I posted and give it some thought. If not, you belong in the Trotskyist junkyard with the rest.

I am for communism, but most communists realize that socialism is merely stage of development in society that comes before communism. Marx theorized that society must transition from capitalism into socialism and only then into communism (as a stateless, classless society). Therefore, socialism is the "lower stage" of communism (the two are similar in many regards).
