  1. And every Soviet-bloc country, given the chance, immediately abandoned communism. Coincidence?

    So why do people still espouse communism?

  2. So, THAT’s why Lenin’s right boot is green!

  3. Actually, real marxist-communism has never been tried.

    It was supposed to be a spontaneous thing that would come about after the proletariat revolted and brought in the True Equality of Communism all over the world.
    So by definition, marxist-communism in any single country is a perversion of Marx’ vision.

    That was one of Trotsky’s beefs, well, that and that he was pushed out and eventually murdered.

  4. ^ So, yeah, they tried and failed;
    and those places where they’re still trying are failures.

  5. Marx was an incompetent crackpot: bad history, bad economics, bad psychology…
    I rank his sci-fi utopianism right up there with stuff by L Ron Hubbard.

    Hmm, prob’ly time to post an update with my cheap Marxist Political Vector.
    It may be wrong, but it’s righter than Marx was.

  6. “one-hundred years of misery, repression, deprivation, lies, wars, and millions of dead… prove nothing!”

    Interesting how all these systems, communism, fascism, islam, etc. can never be fully implemented and “these conditions will prevail” until their system is implemented worldwide, whereupon all will be hunky-dory.
