Short dialogue for Republicans/Tea Party – Capitalism, Communism, Socialism, Fascism
Rolling Stone Magazine January 6, 2014
If you’re a Millennial who loves bread lines, prison camps, forced famines, and abject human misery, then you’ll love the latest offering from Rolling Stone. Over the weekend, Jesse Myerson, a twenty-something former Occupy organizer, finally stumbled upon a foolproof recipe for success for today’s struggling Millennials. The recipe? Communism. Sorry, There’s No Secret for Communism to Work | RealClearPolitics
Dialogue – Capitalism, Communism, Socialism, Fascism
- Ariel Holy capitalism Batman. This guy is the Joker.
Richard There is a major theoretical and implementation difference between Karl Marx ideas and Joseph Stalin’s actions. You cannot really equate the two.
Chris Marxism has failed in every case.
Richard Give an example of the implementation of Marx (as opposed to Lenin, Stalin, or Mao) .
Chris Pol Pot, Mugabe, Lukashenko, Mengistu and dozens of others. To say they were not proper Marxists which supposedly vindicates Marx, is like defending astrology because of errors in reading the stars.
- Richard to Chris you can also say with equal academic validity that capitalism has failed in every instance; hence the reliance on government to regulate unrestrained greed. All general economic theories fail, capitalism and communism included.
Ariel Then which is better… a capitalism variant or a Maxian one? And why?
Fred Schnaubelt While there has never been pure, perfect or ideal communism — there has never been pure, perfect or ideal capitalism. Liberals prefer to measure today’s capitalism however, against “ideal capitalism” and somehow overlook the incomprehensible 62 million killed by Stalin’s Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (USSR) and millions killed under Hitler’s National Socialism (NAZI) and Mao Zedong’s Communism (LEAP FORWARD) and Pol Pot’s Communism (Cambodian Genocide) trying to make communism work, no matter how many liberals and university professors try to defend Marxism. (These deaths, 169 million since 1900, do not include those killed in wars per Death by Government by Prof. R. J. Rummel)
Richard The NAZI s were fascists…. not communists. Genocidal regimes are not communist as there are plenty of genocidal capitalist economies… these factors do not correlate.
Fred Schnaubelt Richard, you may be right, however the NAZI’s considered themselves Socialists which is why NAZI stands for “National Socialist German Workers’ Party.” All Germans think NAZI stands for socialism. Pol Pot considered himself a communist, as did Mao Zedong. The Soviet Dictionary defines Socialism, Communism and Planning as synonyms. Mussolini considered his Italian government Fascist, as did 16 other European countries at the time as the wave of the future. Austrian Economists, F.A. Hayek and von Mises described Communism, Socialism, and Fascism ascommon forms of “authoritarianism.” All three are left-wing doctrines imposed by governments.
Communists believe in the abolition of private property, Fascists let you own property but the government dictates how you use it. Many liberals pretend that Fascism is a right-wing economic counter to left-wing socialism/communism.Democratic Socialism is luke-warm socialism, the so-called Third-Way, which is socialism without the mass murder and Gulags. One thing that is certain, there are no “capitalist genocide economies” except in the imagination of university professors on the wrong side of history.
Capitalism is simply the system of social cooperation and division of labor based on voluntary exchanges where the factors of production are privately owned and controlled by private citizens, the capitalists, and the landowners. Because it is voluntary it is the only moral economic system ever devised. Consumers determine what is to be produced and in what quantity and quality by buying or abstaining from buying. Capitalism is an economic democracy where every penny spent is a vote. If it doesn’t meet this criteria it isn’t Capitalism. Capitalism has created more wealth for more people, and lifted more people out of poverty in the last 200 years than everything else in the last 2,000 years. Thank God for Capitalism, which makes rich men poor and poor men rich! How rich are you compared the rest of the world? Find out at: http://www.globalrichlist.com
