Your opinions are very interesting. You're the only communist I've ever heard whose opinions sound agreeable. Obviously there's a corruption of communism - but who has the corrupted view here, you or them?I'm torn between Marxism and Communism In Love
Your opinions are very interesting. You're the only communist I've ever heard whose opinions sound agreeable. Obviously there's a corruption of communism - but who has the corrupted view here, you or them?
Things like the nation, patriotism, traditional values, etc. - communists who I've encountered would consider your views on these issues to be fascist.
You wouldn't be related to Cael from p.ie by any chance?Yes, Communists around the world use the word "Euro-Communists" as a disparaging term for these. They are really Leftie Liberals. Lenin wrote a book about them called Left Communism - An Infantile Disorder. He was talking about these Euro-Communists and their infantile Liberal ideas. If you look at anywhere where Communism actually took power it was strongly based on Nationalism. Mao, Kim Il Sung, Ho Chi Minh, Castro, etc. were all Nationalists and Patriots. The USSR always had a bit of a problem with Nationalism as it was founded on the Tsarist empire. But Lenin was well aware of this question and formed the USSR as a union of republics. This allowed Nationalism some space within the USSR. Putin actually criticized Lenin for giving in this much to Nationalism and said that this was a mistake that led to the break up of the Soviet Union. It was certainly a contradiction - the same contradiction that the EU faces today. And we see that it was the Socialist states based on the nation that survived. No doubt the DPRK is the most Nationalist state in the world today.
It's not on the list but I'm all for total liberalism so long as there are some controls and it's not a feckin free for all. Don't want bigoted racists fascist communists having a free rein and free speech. Leaders need to be selected based on their liberal mindset and not voted for by the illiterates as they are now adays just because their father was a politician.
To be fair to pie they do ban people from saying the wrong thing. .Nowadays I just go on there to find posts to report and like posts made by The right people .I rarely attack anyone there now for talking shit even though they are still at it .To be honest I don't know. There wasn't any particular incident that I can think of. Looks like they just didn't like what I had to say.
