Communism doesn't work
 |

>everyone is equal, everyone gets equal >no motivation to be better than the next guy >people stop giving a fuck >infrastructure collapses, there is not enough food >it's not self-sufficient >Because it depends on a hivemind. We are not a hivemind, humans aren't ants. An individual can fuck the entire system up, a system that fragile can only be supported by the biggest morons on the planet. >Communism expects every nation of the world to simultaneously give up national sovereignty and for there to be free and infinite resources. Communists seriously believe a store could have infinite products to support a population and it could never run out. >Humans don't want to be equal. Deep down, we know we're not. That's sort of how we got to be the top species on the planet. By constantly "bettering" ourselves and proving we were better than the next man. That's all there is to it. Not some singularity bullshit, not some destiny or genius or great animal mind, just "I'm better than everyone else and i'll prove it", a million times repeated throughout history.

TL;DR because I know already it's true (every person with IQ higher than 40 should understand that). Roses are read. Violets are blue. Communism is bad. Not like you.
2018-08-10 11:47
communism only works if you can program someone’s brain to do exactly what you want 100% of the time except with your entire nation

Sure.

Communsim is the best system for people who can only complain and can't improve their life on their own. It's a reason why it was so successful in such countries as Russia or China. I think these nations are like I described above.

The only thing russia and china need is to be more open to the world and stop opressing people, that would give them a huge advance in everything

I doubt its their fault, i think that West and USA just does not allow Russia and China to open itself to the world. Both West and USA dont want to have competition, simple as that, so they keep them "locked". Sad because we could all benefit from it but thats how it is at least imo.

It truly astounds me how idiotic people are who believe this method will work on a large scale. Do we as humans suck at understanding history? It has failed time and time again.

Communism would only "work" if we were hive-minded creatures like the Zerg of Starcraft or something like that. Ironically in real life socialism the "politicburo" tries to be the Overmind but ends up only being a more entrenched elite that would cause envy in any elite of the capitalist world.

Humans aren't hive-minded that's the exact problem that causes it to fail always, "bu-but China is communist", still, people don't get it that China is economically capitalist more and more and it applies to 99% of communist countries.
2018-08-10 12:03
Communism can work and it did, in my country. It took time but it got where it was planned to be. Faded order has buried the harmony.

Where were your food? Why it caused so many massacres?
2018-08-10 12:04
We lacked severely due to different reasons but once the peace was secured so was food.

Mhm, what about massacres, oh that's why you had food poorly for everyone. Gulags?
2018-08-10 12:47
There's no reaching peace without victims. I know great starvations took lives of many people but we all have had deficit of goods, someone more than others but we've won it in the end. Their sacrifice will never be forgotten.

Why does communism needs victims, but capitalism doesn't need people to starve to death so it can work?

Asking why communism needs people to starve to death so it can work, but capitalism doesn't need people to starve to death, what's wrong with that?
2018-08-10 16:40
Communism doesn't need victims to secure its order, historical circumstances have led us to have such issues.

Seems like it needs now and always, just take a look at North Korea or USSR
2018-08-11 12:30
North Korea is being ruled on dictatorship, it's not communism. USSR never even came close to NK's regime.

Why communist countries always have a dictator?

Communism doesn't have dictators and never did, it's against its main principle.

My believe is, that in a world with so many individuals, communsim can't work on the long run, cause egoism will destroy it sooner or later. Communism needs a highly mature society. One that might never exist. There will always be one in power that wants to exploit it for his own benefits. What's your stance on this?
2018-08-10 12:09
You have a point, I too think it can never work the way it should in theory. But for some percent, it really did work. And though there is nothing perfect in a world like ours, we might have had the closest version of communism to the real one. And if it worked for a while, I guess it does in certain circumstances, we were oppressed by the wars so we had to get together otherwise we wouldn't stand a chance...
2018-08-10 12:14
Yea if you drain other countries. For example Poland sent coal for almost free to Russia.
2018-08-10 12:09
I don't know all details of a deal but I hope you received something equally valuable in return.

Well they received a declining economy that holds them back to this day. Their country is literally worth less than a phone company and that may not have been the case if they were able to accept Marshall Aid and be able to trade with people (the West) that didnt give them HORRIBLE trade deals (the Soviet Union)
2018-08-10 12:19
Let's not turn the tide, we've done bad but there was more good in the end. We liberated Poland and gave them additional lands. Never tortured or executed Jews. Deals could be some dark spots on the whole picture and we should dig deeper to know everything better.

Are you seriously defending the USSR's treatment of Poland? It used it as a satellite state to steal bread from and to use as a buffer against a western invasion if one was to come so it could mobilize. If it truly wanted to "liberate" Poland it would honour its agreements with Churchill and Roosevelt and allow democracy within Poland (which was not allowed by the USSR)
2018-08-10 12:25
I don't know much about this certain topic but neither do I think everything you say is true. I'm more than sure some things were accurately added to the whole story but still we've done them better than Nazists have, there should be more to know.

No one is denying that the Nazi's did bad to Poland and I have 0 clue why you bring that up. But the Soviets were very bad aswell (not worse than the fucking Nazi's). If you aren't educated on the topic (which i am on a general scale) then why are you even debating and taking a side?
2018-08-10 12:37
I'm not able to choose it, I'm on the Soviet side and I know what kind of living it was during its time. We might have been rough at times but we were dealing with the world terror and not just a neighbourhood feud. You gotta understand it. It just fell on our shoulders because Hitler has conquered all the countries he passed on behind and we weren't getting helped so willingly.
