    Should Socialism - Communism be condemned like Nazim?

    Can you imagine yourselves that everybody may wear swastika, laugh about Auschwitz, say "Hail Hitler" and broadcast "Main Kampf" as a positive teaching?
    It is impossible and difficult to believe.

    Can you imagine Hitler as avatar here?

    Socialism - Communism has killed at least five times more as Nazism, but no one communist is punished, the devil's red star continue to be on the Kremlin top, the mummy of Lenin is open to show, socialists are allow to spread their lies without any prohibition in all western countries, moreover some medias air the programs about Lenin, Marx, Mao as a very nice guys, who were only "misunderstand".

    It is something wrong here, maybe should begin to condemn Socialism - Communism like Nazism, right?

    Perhaps you should stop buying communist Chinese "crap" for a start. To condemn them indeed, so to speak.

    I don't want to live in a communist or socialist society...but some people do. If they can practice a "live and let live" philosophy I don't really care. Of course, we can't seem to master that mindset, so I can't really hold any other country to a higher standard.

    I had to answer no opinion, because your question has major flaws. One: do I condemn Stalinism? Most certainly. Marxism (in practice, yes. Should be studied and understood by anyone who want to study politics seriously, though.)

    But if you're attempting to lump contemporary democratic socialism such as is practiced in most of Scandinavia and other parts of Europe with Communism, then that's why I have a problem with your question.

    The despotic regimes of Stalin, Kim, and others are certainly condemnable. Democratic forms of socialism shouldn't be lumped into the same category, however.

    No.

    Capitalism has killed just as many, if not more. Take for example children who have been killed from occupational hazards as a result of lack of regulations in work spaces or requirements for safe working conditions because it would raise the prices of goods and services.

    So no, socialism and communism should not be condemned like nazism is.
    Also, we need to legalize recreational drugs and prostitution.

    If I lived in Sweden, I would not like paying 60% of my income in taxes, but at least I could bitch about it. I could not bitch about the government in Pinochet's Chile, however. I certainly would place the regimes of Stalin, Pol Pot, and Mao on the same level as the Nazis, but this does not make all socialism evil incarnate, just a mode of economic production that I don't like.

    Child labor isn't a very solid argument. Children, elderly, and infirm citizens are working for pennies a day in sweat shops in communist countries all over the world. Most often, they're working in dangerous, unhealthy conditions with few rights.

    This is a very unintelligent poll.
