I mean yeah, ever since we've been fearmongered into it. Not that communism is supperior to democracy/republic.
@Youtuber, well, unless you like genocide. Then communism is your go to!
@Youtuber, maybe way back it was fearmongered but at the same time, where it was coming from was a very real threat. Nowadays it’s not fear, we just know it’s a shït system
@Youtuber, Communism isn't superior in any way. Pure capitalism can be horrible if left unchecked, but Communism just doesn't work. Pure systems of any kind don't work.
@Yukimura, very well said yukimura
@Youtuber, communism is an economic system not a governing system. if you're thinking of the russians they were socialist communist just like we are democratic capitalist.
@Yukimura, I think the ideal society would probably use aspects of Communisim, Democracies, Socialism, and others. They all have flaws, but maybe if we took the best out of everything it would work... Or maybe it would be a disaster, what the hell do I know
@Duncan5769, it’s more likely that the ideal society is based on systems we haven’t yet conceived of.
All current systems are deeply flawed, but are the best we’ve come up with so far.
Just remember that the people in five hundred years will look back at us as barbarians regardless, and you’ll be fine.
@I Are Lebo, Pfft, like there will still be people left after another 500 years of everything we/nature/sun spots/God/Freemasons/libtards/the NRA* are doing to the planet!
*Delete as appropriate to your opinions.
@Duncan5769, It’ll be a disaster - whatever system we use, it’ll be a disaster. Why? Cos a lot of people are c*nts. Including me.
@dont hate masturbate, *republic capitalist
@Yukimura, three cheers for mixed economies! 👍🏻
@Nellybert , nah. I think we’ve got 700-1,000 years before extinction. Probably.
@I Are Lebo, Oh, well, I can stop worrying then - I’m not planning on living more than another 400 years or so, so I won’t have to face the extinction event. 👍🏻
@Nellybert , I’d love to get my brain uploaded so I can just watch the decades pass.
@I Are Lebo, But what if you get put online and can’t shut out the noise? You know how some sci-fi shows telepaths being overwhelmed by everyone’s thoughts? Imagine that, but with twitter and tumblr......
@Nellybert , you’d adapt or go mad. Either way....
Besides, with Twitter it’s pretty easy to get blocked by people.
If I go on twitter and just post “YOU’R ALL WRONG ABOUT THE WAGE GAP!!1!” I figure about half of Twitter will automatically block me.
@I Are Lebo, I’m too polite. I’ve got a Southern Baptist/Evangelical preacher on twitter telling me I’m a satanist because I’m a Freemason (for perspective; he believes that Catholics, Anglicans and most other major denominations are not actually Christians because they tell you to do good deeds as well as have faith - Mother Teresa is apparently in hell for being a Catholic do-gooder, but as long as he repented before eating a bullet, there’s a place in heaven for Hitler). I’m trying to politely explain that Freemasonry is not a religion and get him to leave me alone, but I may soon have to just block him - which he’ll no doubt take as a moral victory.
@Nellybert , there’s no winning against zealots. They aren’t capable of growth because they refuse to accept any information that contradicts their beliefs. The only reason to debate or argue with someone like that is for the third party people listening in. If there aren’t any, then just walk away. It’s a waste of your time and effort otherwise. You will never convince him of anything.
@I Are Lebo, I imagine that his “come to me for absolution and you can get in to heaven, no matter how much f**ked up stuff you did in life” line goes down well in the tent at revival meetings (I’m assuming he’s Southern and preaches in a tent, traveling around the Bible Belt) - probably gets to that part just before the collection plate/credit card reader goes round.
I was trying to avoid debate, mostly just trying to get him to stop talking as the notifications were getting annoying. In the end I gave a polite ‘thank you & goodbye’ and muted the conversation.
Better dead than red.
@Weird Porn Stash, DEATH IS A PREFERABLE ALTERNATIVE TO COMMUNISM!!!
