    Re: Should Socialism - Communism be condemned like Nazim?

    Hmm, Nazism, the specific political philosophy of a particular party, Socialism and Communism, broad-ranging political philosophies with any number of interpretations...



    Perhaps if the OP had said Fascism instead of Nazism, or Stalinism and Maoism instead of Communism and Socialism, there might be a fair comparison. Condemning Communism for what a few tyrannical bastards did is like condemning republicanism because of Iran.

    Nahhh, i think you can fairly condemn Communism on the immorality of taking away the right to property and specific liberties... same with socialism.... where they are inherently immoral for these reasons.
    In my opinion, if communism actually did work, i still would condemn it based on the my beliefs of the inherent rights of all people in which the government does not have a right to forbid or waive. Sacrifice for the greater good doesn't cut it for me.

    The banks took away the right to property for the poor.
    "I do not claim that every incident in the history of empire can be explained in directly economic terms. Economic interests are filtered through a political process, policies are implemented by a complex state apparatus, and the whole system generates its own momentum."

    You can certainly condemn it for that, but you can't condemn it because of Stalin, simply because his view is not reflective of communism as a whole.

    Lets look no further the the OP.
    I will quote it

    Can you imagine yourselves that everybody may wear swastika, laugh about Auschwitz, say "Hail Hitler" and broadcast "Main Kampf" as a positive teaching?
    Well this is an imaginary world... No real...
    It is impossible and difficult to believe.

    Can you imagine Hitler as avatar here?
    This is reasonable... Yes.

    Socialism - Communism
    Combining socialism and communism does not make sense.
    Communism and socialist are different ideologies.
    has killed at least five times more as Nazism,
    No socialism and communism have not. Stalinism (red fascism) and state capitalism have. .

    but no one communist is punished,
    Because this is dumb.Why would we punish someone for following an ideology? People are free to follow Nazism... Its not like we punish them...

    the devil's red star continue to be on the Kremlin top,
    Seriously?

    the mummy of Lenin is open to show,
    Yea because its history.. And because the Russians have a very nationalistic spirit.

    socialists are allow to spread their lies without any prohibition in all western countries,
    Seriously? Are we back to the red scare?

    moreover some medias air the programs about Lenin, Marx, Mao as a very nice guys, who were only "misunderstand".
    This comes new to me!

    It is something wrong here, maybe should begin to condemn Socialism - Communism like Nazism, right?
    Well saying communism is condemned here in America and so is socialism....

    TheDemSocialist, you err by meaning a post is "unintelligent", instead of the user conveying the message. Assuming you now understand this, you still err by now attacking the user's intellect instead of wisely refuting his claim.

    Insult professionaly. Better: do not insult at all.

    To err means to make mistakes.

    Robots cannot have bias. I no longer have bias, yet I am no robot.
