    Communists didn’t lose the cold war

    They simply took over college academics, silicone valley, Hollywood, cable news media. Then changed their name to “democratic socialists”

    #2
    i didn't think anyone really lost the cold war. i thought the USSR just kind of fell apart and thus the cold war became irrelevant. but i'm first to admit, i have an american education and no interest in the cold war, so i haven't learned anything about it in school or done any of my own research.

      Funny if you change the word "Communists" to "Jews" you are just regurgitating Neo Nazi Rhetoric. Funny even the Nazi's blamed Communism on Jews.

      I think that you are still living in the 1950's.

      I'm willing to bet that you don't have an actual clue as what "Democratic Socialism" is. Or what Communism is.

      So let me ask you a question. What are you afraid of regarding "Democratic Socialism"?

        It seems to me that if you live on your own and need 3 sources of income to maintain your lifestyle then you lack financial literacy.

        I think what you are really afraid of is that if the playing field were leveled then someone who you view as financially "lower" would be more competent than you and take your job and it would be an actual meritocracy. As I see it you really aren't that smart and are a cuck. Rather than engage in an intelligent discussion and show how uninformed you really are you speak in hyperbole and are probably a shitty fighter so rather than engage in any type of actual physical fight you'd rather sit back and watch like the cuck that you are.

        On top of that it seems like the Kaitlin Bennet Syndrome has infected the right. Instigate a fight than act like the victim when it doesn't go your way. I'm sure if you put an "All Lives Splatter" sticker on your truck and got your window smashed you'd play the victim. Or walked down the street wearing a "Right Wing Death Squad/Free Helicopter Ride" t-shirt and got attacked by a Chilean Refugee you wouldn't see why you were wrong.

        SMFH.

          I'm afraid I do recognize 6-eyed a little too much in your summary of his convo style there...

          And in all seriousness, the fear of people with (even) less chances (but who are more competent) getting better opportunities on the job market seems a big reason why a lot of people argue like him indeed.

        Now that I've gotten the name calling out of the way.

        Let's say your silly little "Communist Takeover" fantasy were real. Let me ask you a couple of questions. How has it effected your life? If it goes further what do you think will happen?

          Social credit scores, a cashless society, dissenters getting censored and silenced, banks denying financial transactions for people who defy the elites in charge, etc etc

          Yeah. You aren't paranoid at all (sarcasm noted). If I hadn't heard your argument 40 years ago I'd be less likely to laugh at it today.

        Not true really. It's an established fact that a communist like Fidel Castro used to imprison Homosecxuals and other people he deemed politically undesirable. A far cry from the current Social Democratsa agenda.

        Communism is an extremist form of left-wing idelogoy that no sensible and free thinking Leftie Subscribes to, just as Sharia Law/Jihadism is with Muslims/Islam.

        Terms Communism and Sharia Law are lazily thrown about by lazy Right Wing Nutters to spread ignorance and fear mongering about Socialism and Islam (as a whole)

        Same applies to Marxists/Marxism etc

          Rev J In America's founding, most people lived below the poverty line and lived like subsistance farmers. Entrepreneurship, industrialization, regulation-free trade, and a free market brought most of these families out of poverty and created a middle class. In socialism and communism, there is no middle class.

          And the middle class is slowly being killed off by the upper class. Unregulated capitalism just leads to the whole Robber Barron that even keeps the middle class enslaved and begging for scraps.

          Regulation is when politicians collude with the corporate class by writing laws to eliminate their smaller competitors. Making them rich while the middle class further deteriorates

        This is a bait thread, and Rev J took the bait. Really, this is without any exaggeration the same drivel OP always spouts. He simply has nothing better, deeper or more meaningful. You will mainly get rhetoric arguments.

        The only serious purpose this thread will likely have is establishing why OP is like that.

        I think we get close to the core of it in the bolded part below.

          Yes I'm sure the kids paying, in some cases, over 100k for their private education, and the Silicon Valley tech guys who are living quite comfortably with money they earned in a capitalistic system, and the wealthy Hollywood players who have made their fortune off a society that will pay a good chunk of their disposable income to be entertained, and the cable news heads who carefully curate what Americans are allowed to know in order to maintain the status quo, are the true Bolsheviks of this country, just fighting to overthrow the rich and establish equality for all
          .... even though they.....
          ...are the rich.
          Sounds legit

          I'm refrained from taking the bait on 6's posts for so long but he's getting more and more nonsensical in his old age and someone needs to point it out

            Communist nations ALSO have a propagated media that censors and silences opposing voices. This is the direction social media platforms are heading. In fact, they are no longer platforms; they are becoming publishers.

          Most rich people have at least 5 or more sources of income. People who are way more financially competent than both of us combined. Taking financial advice from you is a joke.

          No, after many years of trying to have civil dialogue with people like you, it's come to the point where it's damn near impossible without someone crying ad hominems and strawmen buzzwords like "nazi white nationalist bigot ____phobic racist." So I take the same shit I take from your ilk and throw it right back.

            Back during the W Bush years, I used to get along well with a lot of lefties. During those times we were able to cast our differences in fiscal and economic policy and share agreements with no more starting pointless wars, bring the troops home, no more westernizing the middle east through force. These were mostly Dennis Kuchinich supporters. They were the equivalent to Berners today. Back then, Kuchinich supporters never liked being called socialist. In fact, most democrats avoided that word like the plague.

            Now, they are no longer hiding it.

              Most "Rich" people who have all of those sources of income are also self employed. On top of that most of them are in debt too all of their holdings are in credit. And most of them have families that they are supporting too. You are only as good as your credit rating.

              The big "Rule" that I learned is that your rent or mortgage payment should not be more than one weeks salary. It works for me.

              What's really rich about your argument is the fact that I live with less debt and less overhead than you do. I also don't have or need a credit line to live comfortably. Not to mention that the depression hasn't really made a dent in my lifestyle. At least I won't die in debt.

              Maybe the reason that you are being called all of those things is because you are echoing their talking points. If you don't like being called out on it maybe you should take an honest look at the shit that you are saying. You post memes glorifying Pinochet who was an actual fascist that is why you get called a fascist. You post shit that mirrors what Neo Nazi White Supremacists say so I'm calling you on it. The truth sucks dude.

                I'd say the Soviet Union lost the war because it collapsed , and Russia is now a moderate Fascist state.

                But the errors of Communism run rampant in America and the European Union. A big chunk of our world is Chinese as well.

                No, communism and her errors were not close to being defeated since 1917.

                The Soviet Union sure took a shit though.

                  I saw a meme today the Millenniums don't think of Socialism in the cold war Russia way then think of it as in the Norway or Canada today way. You know, socialized medicine kinda thing so if you do get sick you don't put yourself so far in debt if you live you will never be able to pay your bills.

                  And out of curiosity, where is the rich person line you talk about?

                    The richest person I know is a retired plastic surgeon who owns a brewery, a farm, a mini mall where department stores pay him rent. And he is a master carver who builds and sells artisan furniture. That's 5 sources of income right there. Is that what you're asking?

                  I was going to go for another well thought out response about the quarter life crisis and the real problem. But I think George Carlin sums it up better than I can:



                  If Communism won out I sure as fuck don't see it.
