    "I'll go," said Chagataev. "But what will I do there? Build socialism?"
    "What else?" said the secretary.

    Communism is cool, but uncool at the same time. Communes are awesome.

    What, i wasn't arguing, i was just inserting myself. I don't really know what the hell the forum i've seen is, but all i do is stay in miscalaneous, which are not really pokemon forums anyways. So i can't really have an oppinion but wanted to be in the convo.

    I should probably read up on politics sometime.
    Well, I open my eyes and I see things. I've seen spirits moving through the walls. I've seen a vortex coming through the wall. I've seen amorphous little balls of light bouncing all around in the front yard through the window. I've seen giant bugs on the floor. I was in a hotel room in Amarillo, Texas, and all I remember is standing on the bed and seeing the whole wall in front of me filled with lights that were [makes popping sound] popping like popcorn out of the wall. Then I'll wake up and I go "Wow, I was standing on my bed and staring at this wall."

    this forum is probably in the upper percentile on the internet for producing radical leftists

    we hover as a community around God, who keeps this community going and documents its existence. god is a far-leftist.

    There is still a limited hierarchy, more of advanced socialism.

    not in terms of literally the social structure of the forum. pd is a forum where we mainly discuss communism. how hard is that to understand

    No dummy, not a forum based on Communist values, a forum with a prominent Communist population

    It is no doubt an oligarchy for sure.

    If it wasn't for PD, I probably would have tried to become some dumb business owner who treats their workers like shit, tries to sell stuff well above labour value, and whose ultimate destiny would have been to become bankrupt within three years. All the while, enjoying nothing of my ventures. Thanks, PD

    PD is a communist forum. Different members of integrated forums post a certain quota of posts per day, which are then tallied together to produce activity. As less and less communal forums produce posts, activity declines and Pokedream goes into a state of decay. If a member fails to fulfill their quota, they are deleted. The forum is ruled by a strict, ideological leader who provides insight into various forums but nonetheless acts in a dictatorial manner, with him and the other elites he surrounds himself with acting as an administration from which any right of speech or association may be crushed on a whim. Sometimes it seeks to surround itself with satellite forums such as Gr00vy or Cosmo, which it keeps under the same ideological banner in order to sustain proper activity. Truly, there is not a more communist forum than Pokedream.

    I can only think of three hardcore Communists of PD.

    Kirby, Tim, Celery. Who else?

    Solly is one, I believe, due to Hicky's INCREDIBLY ACCURATE POLITICAL COMPASS TEST, I am inclined to say he is too, or, atleast some brand of socialist, and Rayne is one. That's like most of the population of PD

    Rayne's not communist, he's said so before. I could see Solly and Hicky though.

    im not a communist. i dont think god could call himself a communist anymore. kirby is just communist because god used to be. celery used to be like kirby but right now he seems to be learned enough that he's earned the communist label.
