Labeled
What happens when you label something? When something is different, you say, "oh that's so weird!" This irks me very much, and it may have something to do with the way I was brought up, but let me give an analysis of exactly why I believe that labeling is wrong.
In today's culture, this equation holds true:
Anything outside of the norm = weird/strange
You might say, "Is that not the definition of weird?" Indeed it is, but the thing that makes this equation unjustified is the negative denotations that are implied by the words weird and strange. In other words, being weird or strange is considered a bad thing. I am wrong? I mean, just look at how homosexuals are treated! There is no good reason for the discrimination, except that homosexuality is "weird." Anyway, because of these negative denotations, the equation eventually becomes:
Anything outside of the norm = bad
So, let's take homosexuals. Let's say that you don't have anything against them, but you think they are "weird." In your

Why Fascism?
How is it possible for one to think that he/she is superior to all others? How can one say that the world should be purged of its diversity? How is it possible for a man to honestly believe that another is inferior simply because of their ethnicity? Why are there fascists?
Throughout my life, I have tried to understand fascism and the National Socialist Movement here in America. It certainly seems absurd to think that one race can possibly be superior to all others simply because of their skin color. I was disgusted today to find the official website of the Nazi Movement. Banners all across the site say things like "Help Clean up America" with a picture of a Star of David being thrown in the trash can. I was sickened when I saw a preview for a game called Zog's Nightmare, which they call "a first person nigger-shooter video game." This disturbed me. Throughout this article, I will attempt to explain the appeal of fascism, and why the seemingly horrible people continue to follow these r

THE LABOR THEORY OF VALUE
What is value? What is the universal thing that decides how much something costs. Well, we know that the value of something can only be determined at the moment of exchange. For example, if you trade 20 yards of linen for one coat, you know that the value of 20 yards of linen is equal to the value of one coat. But what decides this? To find the answer, we must find the single property that all commodities have in common.
Modern capitalists will argue that the use value has a role in the exchange value, and ultimately the value. They say that supply and demand governs the economy, and that there would be no demand without use value. Well, think of it this way: $100 of lead is the same value as $100 of gold, yet the use value of the gold is much higher than the lead. So naturally, the use value is different in all commodities, and therefore cannot be used as a universal determinate of value.
So what exactly is the one property that all commodities have in common

Anatomy of a Revolution
Anatomy of a Revolution
So you want to overthrow the government, huh? Well, needless to say, it's not that simple. This short article will give you useful information as to what it takes to have a successful revolution. Here we go:
1. Do NOT initiate violence. Look at the wars the United States has started. When we attack first, we do not have the support of our people, and generally, we are not successful. To maintain support, you must wait for your ENEMY to initiate the conflict. In our own American Revolution, we only caused violence AFTER the British government had done many outrageous things.
2. Gain support, which means gain money. DO NOT gain this money by any unethical means, for you will lose whatever credibility and support you may have had. To ultimately destroy capitalism, you have to participate in the system first. Capitalism shapes society so that the ONLY way to ultimately gain support is to gain money. Look at our presidents: it takes about $60,000,000 to win an electi

EDUCATION
The education system is very poor. Maybe, on a basic level, it does what it is supposed to, but as a whole, it teaches you nothing about the things that matter, such as how our country works. In many schools, social study is a subject lacking the support to adequately educate the public. Political thought should be stressed much more, considering that this current generation will decide our futures in the next decade through elections (at this rate, only 40% of them will…), and you can't rely on the news media to provide an accurate depiction of candidates. Just look at how they let George Bush and his administration slip!
If the media cannot be trusted with education, then the schools must bring it on themselves, a rather unfortunate circumstance, seeing as though it's the media's job to educate the public where the schools can't, and this may be more than schools can handle. But at this point, schools don't get nearly enough funding to do anything, so it is a vicious cycle

What Exactly Is Life All About Anyway?
Human life is a strange thing. Every other animal on our planet has a purpose. They coexist with their enviroment, and each creature has a role in nature's big game of keeping everything balanced. However, there is one animal that keeps screwing things up for all the other animals: human beings.
In truth, humans are more like viruses than they are mammals. They take over an area, use it, reproduce, destroy it, and move on to the next victim. And what exactly is our role in nature? Do we have a purpose? The answer is simply: no. Our purpose is not to keep other species in check, or remove pests, or anything of the sort. Our purpose in human history seems to be to find a purpose.
Other animals have niches that they follow every day; more or less a routine for living. We have no such thing, and if we wanted to, we could just sit in front of our televisions for eternity (some people do). Most of the time, human life is completely meaningless and absur

Perhaps what you are meaning to say is that Socialist societies as we knew them in the 20th Century did not work. Marxism, strictly speaking, has never been fully realized in any such case. While we could debate the specifics of that idea, the fact remains that there has yet to be any long-term society based on Marxian principles to reach beyond the early Socialist stage of development. One could also state that most democratic societies have not been particularly successful either, as the majority of them established within the past century have not achieved anything close to the "successes" of the dominant world powers. Many of which themselves were not democratic systems until relatively recently either.

Now, if one wants to argue from an economic point of view, Capitalism itself has only been successful and relatively prosperous for a handful of nation states. The fact that these same nation states have been the dominant world powers of recent human history likely has much to do with that, rather than the actual value of Capitalism as an economic system. By contrast, the centrally planned economies of the USSR and it's satellites, were plagued with inefficiencies of several types. Technologically speaking, one could say the task of a truly large economy such as the USSR or modern China (which is a mixed economic structure) being centrally planned has only been possible within the past few decades. The USSR did not survive long enough to take possible benefit from the advances in computing power for us to know what effect it would have had on it's central planning, so it's a bit of a moot point. Modern retailers, while solidly part of the Capitalist model, already employ the tools that could be used by a centrally planned system for keeping track of supply vs demand, trends in the needs of a given area, etc. Certainly other manner of companies have also employed computer systems that have drastically increased efficiency and logistics. All because we increasingly have the technological ability to do so rather than relying on the less effective methods of human record keeping and tracking as it was known.

Not that the economy of the USSR and it's imitators was simply a planned economy. More a command economy, really. A more accurate description of a Socialist/Marxist economy would be a centrally planned economy as defined as one centered on "production for use". This differs from a Capitalist economy, whatever form it may take, which is based on "production for accumulation" motivated by excess profit goals. The Soviet model, on the other hand, was neither in that production was set by specific goals regardless of current use or supply (accumulation) already achieved. The classic example of one being able to buy plenty of shoes but it taking several years to buy a car comes to mind.

In the current era, the PRC has eliminated many of these issues by allowing for some free market systems, which in turn has driven accumulation of all manner of things. Whether or not this has been beneficial for all Chinese is debatable, as there is great disparity between city and countryside. It has also created the massive production system currently exploited by most Western firms for cheap labor, which in and of itself has been both positive and detrimental to some degrees. I am, admittedly, less well versed in the nature of the Chinese economy than is required for this conversation.

I'm a Conservative (British not the broken American version) but bloody hell, you Communists can definitely make your point. I suppose I respect that. 

I'd like to make it clear that I am very dissatisfied with sharing the right wing with the American Republicans, and of course Nazism.

I don't necessarily agree with Communism, but I am willing to respect the goals it wishes to achieve, please do not class me in those broken American republican terms. I have had this happen before.

American Conservatism, ironically, was once American Liberalism. One could suppose that Republicans fall under the dubious title of Neo-Conservatism, whatever that exactly means.

While I am not sympathetic to Conservatism of any stripe, I do not blame you for wishing to distance yourself from the less savory aspects of your movement. Heck, if it were me, I would be embarrassed too. Actually, I feel similarly whenever someone brings up North Korea's supposed devotion to Communism...

I can also appreciate your respectful attitude, and thus I am in turn inclined to be so as well. Detente is not without it's merits, after all, and so long as things remain respectful, I more than welcome your commentary.

Do not despair, recognize the enemy, be more aware for it. Find ways to work against the enemy. To despair, to lose some heart, is what the enemy wants. To destroy our morale, to make us demoralized. We exist to resist.
