    Capitalists wear top hats and monocles.

    Arguing capitalism is bad is like arguing evolution is bad. Survival of the fittest. Some have unfair advantages, some never stood a chance, some will thrive, some will die. In the end though it doesn't matter if you think it's terrible, your opinion doesn't make it any less of a fact.

    Yeah, I was wondering why you didn't reply and I was planning on re-asking you.

    I am not really 100% knowledgeable about Communism and socialism, but as far as what I know I am mostly communist.

    But, there are still quite a few holes in my knowledge. You are an avid Stalin supporter, right? Do you consider his policies to stay true to Marx's, or do you like him for his benefits he brought to the USSR alone?

    i dont care much about marx or orthodox marxism. it was written in the 1800s. he got a lot of things wrong and at the same time his predictions proved more true than most recognize. but in general orthodox anything is dumb. i dont have any particular reverence for marx(also i consider him a rather boring writer, engels was the better of the pair IF YOU ASK ME).

    i "like" stalin because he brought the ussr from a rural backwater to a world super power in a few years despite taking the most damage of any during WWII. he proved how purely productive a non-market economy can be, although there were a lot of issues. also i do have a level of respect for men who know how to get things done. plus loving stalin is great material to get people talking. he wasnt the nicest guy in the world though, but it's hard to dispute how much he did for russia.
