    good times

    garda/fontaine/whoever the fuck was a perfect example of masking lunacy with soft-spoken civility
    Merged:
    calling it 'communism' is generous in all honesty

    one of the main tenants of communism is classlessness; that is, establishing a society wherein everyone enjoys the same standard of living and there is no ruling elite. i guess the Mao and Stalin stooges just forgot about that part, right? no. they weren't communist. they didn't believe in equality, they didn't believe in classlessness, they didn't believe in any of the core tenants of communism. they were power-hungry men who soapboxed about communism to rally armies of disenfranchised poor and then elevated themselves to the positions of the people they had killed, repeating the cycle they preached against.

    you gotta be real ignorant to look at Stalin, a fucking aristocrat, and equate his image with communism.

    If anything actually, I'm fine with socialism but the best economic model that I really can go with is the Nordic model since I'm more towards a mixed economy. At least it opens more of an opportunity to people who wants to do some business but also provide those who at high risk/disadvantaged imo.

    i don't really support socialism because most flavors of it take human labor for granted. personally i think human labor's gonna approach obsolescence within the next decade or so so i don't really look into a lot of existing socioeconomic models.

    idk really. it's a weird mix of ideas from peter joseph, buckminster fuller, george carlin, and my own personal observations and thoughts. kinda nameless but the main thing i talk about is post-scarcity and science applied socioeconomically.

    Thats fair enough, I am more for automation in the future nowadays and seeing how we are approaching that state things are definitely gonna change. Exploitation of human labour is a huge nope to me and since a number of socialist flavours does take that in hand. If anything, I am more supportive for social welfare nowadays and a humanistic approach to whatever economic models that can allow people to spend time with families and do what really interests them rather than working insane hours at 2 retail/labour job which has been I believe affecting quite a lot of people today.

    its founded on marxist ideas and marx was a massive antisemite, like more than most at his time
    then the fact that most manifestations of it so far has lead to persecution, oppression, dictatorships, and death
    the fact that at the root from the founding principles is about violent revolution
    and the fact that from a personal experience most supporters of it ive met irl have been massive vandalizing, violent, hostile cunts

    Nordic model ftw
    only reason i could be ever labelled as conservative is because i want to conserve the nordic model and welfare state

    i implore you to read/listen to some of peter joseph's lectures. he talks about exactly that, but goes more in-depth with topics like sustainability and open-sourcing and other stuff that'd allow a post-scarcity society to exist.
