Finally, a communist supporter! I support only Marxism, though (True Communism). Stalin, Mao, and the other "Communists" only ruined the idea and ingrained it in our heads that Communism is bad.

Which it's not, it's just the implementation was horrible. Communism was supposed to be perfect anarchy - the absence of state because the workers themselves run the government. Instead, it turned into another totalitarian regime hell bent on exterminating non-compliant members. Damn shame it didn't turn out like it should have.

In fairness to Lenin, his intentions were pure. He used some extreme methods, but remember that he governed during an extreme time. His use of force was only as a result of the Russian Civil War combined with a mass famine he was having to deal with. He came very close to fixing it all and developing the true Marxist society he dreamed of. I admit a lot of his methods were harsh, but his intentions were pure. He believed in democratic Communism.

Exactly, and because of Stalin dictatorship, a lot of people forgot the reals goals of communism as Lenin tried to show.
And in 1871, in the Paris Commune, people tried to establish a socialist regime, and It wasn't bloody at all as Stalin regime, and above all, this is thanks to this revolutionary wave during the Paris Commune (which established a socialist regime non-violent, but ended rapidly because It wasn't an official regime) that Marx was inspired by this idea of revolution.

Indeed, now if Lenin lived long enough to have Stalin ousted and secure Leon Trotsky as his successor, maybe, just maybe, communism would be looked on a bit more neutrally, if not more positively.

Really true, without Stalin, there wouldn't have fakes communist regimes which are in fact totalitarian regimes, like the Maoist dictatorship of China which is in fact an inspiration of Stalin's thought, and like the North Korea regime...

A lot of people fears communism because they think about Stalin's dictatorship, which wasn't a communist regime at all : only Stalin had the whole power, which was incompatible with the dictatorship of the proletariat (which is a form of direct democracy, as the Paris Commune government was), and he abandoned the internationalist concept for establishing his dictatorship on the USSR.

Lenin really had good intentions because he tried to warn the Communist Party's Congress about Stalin's brutality, and chose Trotsky as his successor.
That's really too bad that Lenin didn't live long enough...
Now, as communist supporters, the only thing that we can do is to reveal the true communism...

Death to stalinism, long live to the internationalism !

Communism and capitalism are just economic systems, one based on collective ownership the other on private accumulation. You could have authoritarian and libertarian manifestations of both. On a side note, I'd like to point out that I don't particular consider authoritarian 'communist' regimes to be communist whatsoever. In addition I would argue that there's something innately more democratic in collective ownership than in capitalism. Don't you find it surreal that whilst western countries may have semblances of political democracy (using semblance as clearly 'democracy' is a contestable concept with no authoritative definition) there's a massive deficit in economic democracy - la the entire banking system et al et al et al.

As for the god-given part, we'll have to agree to disagree on that. I don't believe in a creator, you evidently do, no big deal. Let's not obscure the debate.

Take care/god bless.

I think we have different opinions on what communism is. Let's just say that I disagree with any form of government that takes away rights; such as the right to form your own business. I'm not an anarchist, though.

Alright then. Just know that I'm up for a debate on that. Keyword: debate. :nod:

You too, I guess.

In theory, yes. But in reality, it never has, doesn't, and never will turn out that way. Anarchy is the true absence of government, and places like Somalia and Afghanistan show how successful that ideology is. XD

Communism is always taken by a stronger faction, and turns into a totalitarian government. It never fails.

True communism is anarchistic - a society organised on collectivist lines by itself, not by a government standing above it: [link]

Communism as a government is a ridiculous farce and not communism as Marxists or anarchists understand it. It's just a dictatorial government like any capitalist dictatorship or monarchy.

My ability is a value that must be earned and I don't recognize anyone's need as a claim on me.

And I hope communism has plans for what to do after it destroys all the men of the mind (or they go on strike). The means of production don't benefit those who don't know how to use them.

I'm reading these comments and I've found another mistake. So sorry for the triple post.
The KPD never start a fire in Reichstag. That was the most stupid story created by Nazis in Germany. Anyone can go in Berlin and tell this story, and all he will have in answer is a very loud laugh. (Maybe if you go to Friederichshain someone in black jaket can believe this).
P.S. Very good artwork!

Another thing. Talk about how many people died because of "communism" just like as communism was a person with a gun. It's just pointless.
Communism is just an ideology.
People like Stalin or Mao Zedong were criminals that kill billions of people IN THE NAME OF communism, but that is NOT communism at all.

"The Jewish spirit must be exorcised". You can't take a quote without the rest of "On the Jewish Question".
That "Jewish spirit" is just a metaphor to talk about the religion integration of Jewish people.
Marx uses jewish (he was jewish by the way) to explain that when a State is offically christian, jewish people have problems in relationship with the institutions. But even if this State become atheist, the grass roots become not automatically atheist, so as Marx say the christian go to the christian baker, and the jewish go to the jewish baker. So the problem is not about political emancipation of religious people, because politically all jewish and christians are only citizens, but about human emancipation of all men! So only who leave religion behind can think about his REAL HUMAN emancipation.

"Brainwashed tool"
Lol look who talking.
Two things:
One its the Communist Manifesto there's an o at the end and two I have read it. It was the worest piece of shit book I ever read. I wouldn't even use it for toilet paper.
Summuery of the shitty book:
Proletarian dictator who will get rid of the Bourgeois and create a world revolution. Proletarian dictator lives rich as fuck and everyone else livs in there collective gulag societies.
Also look at the body count communism has caused, 100 million dead and still counting.
Mao - 72 - 50 million
Stalin - 50 - 30 million
Pol Pot - 3 million
Lenin - 1 million
Castro - 1 million
Another thing Karl Marx was anti-relious. All Communist states were hostiale toward religion.
Karl Marx was also a racist who called thrid world countries as "racial trash." He also called for Germany to assimilate Germany's eastern neighbors.
And yet somehow you think its a good book. :?:
Your obviously a troll or 13 years old because there is no way you can take this stuff seriouly.

What has any of that to do with the Communist Manifesto?
A proletarian dictatorship doesn't have a dictator per se, other than the working class as a whole. The proletariat is the overwhelming MAJORITY of society, which will get rid of the parasitic class at the top - the bourgeoisie. The bourgeoisie profits off the labour of our class, we don't need them! A proletarian dictatorship would dictate its demands to all the other classes in society, and run society in the interests of working people. There is no "dictator" involved; none of this has anything to do with the list of dictators you've mentioned.

Religion is separate to faith in gods because it is a distraction away from social reality. In this way it is reactionary, and can not possibly contribute to human progress.

If believing in a god makes you happy though, good for you! Perhaps there is a god, noone knows. Marxism certainly has nothing to say on the subject because it only analyses human social change.

Ah I see your ignorance, First- it was a simple typo, Second-You apparently didnt read it and understood it: there is no dictator, only the working class (it clearly states that the state would be the government and that the state is the working class.)Since every one gets the same income no one will live "rich as fuck", and no one would be poor either so they wouldnt live in "collective gulag societies"

As for the body count:
Lenin-there was a revolution (there will be death in any revolution of that kind)
Stalin- WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU? only a dumb person would buy that stalin was leading a communist Russia, It was closer to a Fascism (Fascism-authoritarian hierarchical government) Communism has power in the workers not one leader or several leaders, the power is the workers. Stalin was in power and he had any one who he was suspicious of killed (seems alot like Fascism to me, not like a utopian ideal that communism strives for where every one is equal)
Castro-Again he led a revolution but from my understanding He has employed strict Media control(not communism)the health care is horrid and not everyone is allowed it except the rich(communism strives for better health care that every one can have also there is no rich people in a pure communist country)
Mao-again? he also led a revolution (strange that there is loss of life due to these revolutions?)
Pol Pot-well he forced people to go work in the country sides at farms (seems sorta like hitler forcing people into concentration camps, again Fascism)

As for Marx being anti-religious (note I am not complaining about your typo) religion divides every person on earth. How many wars has an atheist country went in and slaughtered many people because they belive in god? what that you say? none? exactly! Atheists will not beat up some one for what they believe (but the christians did beat the shit out of the muslums in the Holy crusades claiming them heathens)
As for all Communist states were hostile (again I do not blame you for a simple typo)I do not think this true, merely an over exaggeration of the fact that Karl Marx didnt like religion so others try to similate.

As for him being racist it was just his own views he didnt promote it like he did communism. If you care so much about racism to use it to demote communism then I think you should look into the past the U.S.A. where a person of a different color has had less rights than a white person untill recently.

As for him telling Germany to assimilate Germanys eastern neighbors was his opinion on what germany should do. If every country went on someone's opinion then the middle east would have been destroyed with nuclear war heads (because some people learn about the middle east through their vido games and have no knowledge about it what so ever.)

I think it is a good book because it proves the problems of capitalism (without capitalism there would be no poverty no people going hungry because they dont make enough to eat properly, ect.)

I admit it was wrong of me to acuse you of not reading it but many people don't read it and assume they know every thing about it and call it evil with out just cause. But it appears that you have been raised against communism, having every one tell you it is bad before reading it so you already have an expectation for it to be bad (it is a form of brain washing when every one pounds their thoughts and ideas into your head)

A troll? Good fellow Trolls don't exist and if you think they do I feel sorry for your parents having to put up with their insane child who thinks trolls are real...absurd.

13? you are funny I doubt a 13 year old even thinks about Political ideas. I do take this stuff seriously I have looked into several different political ideas and I think Communism the best.
P.S. you did say two things in the start of your message, it seemed more than two arguments against Communism.

Lol at "What ateist country has ever started a war?". Let's start, shall we? Russian Federative Socialist Republic- War with Finland (1918-1919) Russian Federative Socialist Republic again, Attacking finland in the Winter War in 39, along with the Soviet Invasion of Poland. Atheist Soviet Organization, The Organization of The Militant Godless, a stalinist anti-religion aligned militia, burnt churches, harassed helpless orthodox christians, threatened the life of the Patriarch, beat, shot and otherwise hunted the religious simply for their belief. this can be understood as a War on Religion. Now on to communist organization who, without nation-status, have declared open war on actual nations. The FARC of Columbia, the Naxalites of India and Bangladesh, the Shining Path of Peru, the Viet-Cong, the Red Army (Who are responsible for some of the worst atrocities of any military organization in history, several times worse than the Nazis) the Irgun of Israel, the 26th of July Movement, Bolivarian Liberation Front, PRA-Argentina.

If you want more, oh the list goes on. Eventually blooshed completely nullifies the good a communist state (even a utopian one) would do. If communist movements have killed 800 million (and that's being a little generous, it's probably alot higher) then how can they justify a worker's movement after killing off the fucking workers? Hypocrites and dreamers.

And don't give me that "If they committed atrocities then they aren't communists" bullshit. The Crusades killed thousands, that doesn't mean Christians can claim the Templars weren't Christians.

It's murder, and for nothing.
