Whenever people say they're communists it pisses me of as much as when people say they're Nazis. My grandmother fled east Germany with only what she could carry in a potato sack. But it wasn't real communism so it doesn't count. Also the holocaust wasn't real nazism so let's give that another swing.
@ReeseBobby, my grandfather fled from his native hungary to america in 1919 from the first communist takeover, fųck communism.
@XxDEMONBANExX, it's funny, I've never met a single person who lived through it give it a positive review. Kinda of implies that it's not very nice.
@ReeseBobby, well, seeing as I had two uncles die fighting stalin's armies in the army of miklos horthy, I think we can agree communism sucks
@XxDEMONBANExX, Socialism is much better than Communism, which is theoretically impossible as a concept to achieve
@WhyNotBoth, socialism is just as bad, long live free market capitalism
@XxDEMONBANExX, free markets just end up with monopolies controlling everything.
@Koochdog, good. Wuahahaha
@XxDEMONBANExX, which can easily end up becoming an oligarchy. The other extreme isn't good either.
@Koochdog, What you’re describing is Corporatism, where Corporations effectively become a rich shadow government due to lack of regulation in most capacities. Capitalism places regulations to allow the free market to flourish with competition and advancement while preventing companies from gaining too much power.
