You seem to hold a romanticized view of the harsh realities of communism, and a semi-hagiographical reverence for the leaders who were, in absolute honesty, evil.

Some may. But a good many of us are rather aware of the bad blood of our movement. We try and learn from the mistakes of the past, so that we may not repeat them again. Building the Socialist society is no easy goal, nor one that has been done entirely right before. But, just as Marx taught us, we strive to understand the how and why of these failings, their connection to the class struggle that continue or continued to exist, and of course the failings of overcoming Nationalist sentiment and tendencies.

The-Necromancer concedes fully that many of the "big" figures in the Communist movement have been rather despicable. Some more so than others. And it is again to the modern Communist to try and evaluate, understand why that is and how it failed. Historical Dialectic is not merely for the struggle against the Capitalists. It should also be applied to our own cause, so that we may always be aware of our own failings.

A good percentage of your picture are of the likes of Stalin, Mao, Ho CHin Minh, so on and so forth. Y'know, the guys who have a collective body count in the hundreds of millions.

the west knows the exact number of people killed by Stalin, Mao, Ho Chi Minh and so on...but doesn't know of any suffering or deaths that occured while these places were ruled by the Tsars or the Qing Dynasty or French colonial empire.

the same applies to any communist state which was previously ruled by feudal lords.

That is true.

And it is also true that every submission is voted on. We have rejected a good many such submissions as well as accepted them.

Did you dig through the entire gallery? Just curious. You may find the likes of Camus and several others alongside the "usual suspects". And then there are the writings and AgitProp which have absolutely nothing to do with Uncle Joe et. all.

If you wish to criticize, at least be constructive about it...

He, like George Orwell, knew what the Communist governments of the world were like, but still held onto the idea of communism, not the realities it had become in hopes we could yet make it right.

True but he came to that conclusion quite late in the day, he spent years working in CPUSA front groups.

That and history books. Both of which you appear to have neglected.

Communists are f*cking idiots who are anti-individual "Only the whole society matters!"

Fuck off, your ideals work against human nature. And you have dozens of examples when "communist joy" is a cause of death of milions of people.

You must be an idiot 8th grader who knows shit about economy and politics overall. 


True capitalist to the soul, 'till the bullet hole.

While The-Necromancer is sure this will be utterly pointless...

First of all, why so rude?

Second of all, Marxism views that in order for the individual to be better, everyone must be better. As such, what is good for all is indeed good for the individual. We tend to see this in most societies with the application of universal education, public health standards, and various safety regulations. The-Necromancer believes such things in most Western democracies are called "Social Safety Nets". They exist to both better protect the collective whole, and to thus improve the living conditions and quality of the individual.

Thirdly, if you want to talk about mass suffering, The-Necromancer would suggest you investigate American expansion Westward, European Colonialism, and very brutal attitudes adopted during the Industrial Revolution by those delightful Robber Barons and Captains of Industry. All of those were motivated or enacted by Capitalist oriented societies, or at the very least encouraged by them.

Lastly, one must ponder: Your claim of being a true Capitalist until the bullet hole. Does that mean the bullet hole potentially put in you, or does it mean until the bullet hole put in every last person that opposes your worldview? The-Necromancer has met many a proponent of Capitalism that would answer to the latter rather than the former...

By two of your last points - same applies to communism, many people died because of communism and bringing old trash is a 'little' bit pointless. Well, the mass capitalism and industrial revolution just started - it was brutal sure, but they polished it to a much better one in which relationship between employer and employe is more fair and overall - better.

It means I'd always be true to capitalism, oh bringing that 'capitalists are baaad people cause u kno i heard something happened and blah blah blah...' - same goes to commies, alot of them had to eat second harvest of their food or each other to survive.

I'm hot headed, apologies - but it's very easy to get on my nerves.

Yes, and to fuck up rich people and shit on economy. It's quite silly to be honest, as free health care and education exists in capitalist countries and I'm sure you couldn't manage to have all that without big ass taxes - especially that the country would be supposed to rely solely on itself, with no free market. It'd be quite primitive to be honest.
