    Default Communism Debate

    I'm tired of threads getting hijacked by communism debate.
    So this is the thread for it.
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Personally, I'm all for it because I hate the idea of money.

    if even "screwed up" communism leads to the fastest industrialization in human history, enormous gains in life expectancy, literacy rates, enormous declines in infant mortality, and winning world war two, then communism must be pretty great.

    It was Czarist Russia, I mean really, there wasn't much of anywhere else to go but up.

    It is not really possible to practice, because it is the way of man to want more than what he has. Men are easily corrupted. Therefore, communism, while it is a great concept, can never be utilized.

    Marxism however...

    I hate that debat people do not always get currupted. You take a person like mother teresa make her president of the world I think she would be fine. You just have to get the right leader and one that also listens to there people.

    Kirbx, the chances of finding a person who is truly selfless are fantastically small. Your plan won't work.

    This discussion is becoming circular and is therefore terminated.

    The day God comes up with something original is the day Dogar stops posting walls of animated images.

    There isn't anything to say here. From what I see off of other forums and their communism discussions, it's all the same.

    People are that bad Kirbx. All human beings, regardless; are selfish, arrogant, and greedy. That includes Mother Teressa.
