    It has come to my attention that there are a lot of commies on EDF, or at least faggy gimmick accounts that pretend to be communists. I've always thought commies were pretty damn funny, especially devoted ones. Allow me to share with you my understanding of communism. (0h, and yes, I'm sure this type of thread has been done millions of times before, I know.)




    I believe that communism is a wonderful, beautiful idea. A true communist utopia would be a place devoid of segregation, racism, separation of classes, corruption, or starvation. Despite this, I am not a communist, and I would dread living in a communist nation. Why? It's very simple. Such a place will never. fucking. exist. ever. Human nature makes it impossible. In a communist state, there is no incentive to work, since nobody is paid, and everybody gets all of their food and necessities either way. Once the people realize that they don't NEED to work to live, especially those who's jobs are harder than others, the whole damn system will fall apart. And even if such a place did exist, I guarantee none of us would be happy living in it, including myself. I'm a hedonistic bastard, I like my stuff and my things. I'm a white male born into an upper-middle class family, things don't get much easier for me. So how can any of you, living in a world of privilege and democracy, honestly say that we would be better off as communists? At least I can admit that I enjoy spoiling myself with shit like drugs and games and food, instead of trying to fool myself like you. Tell me, would you really be happy if that was all taken from you?

    How about a communistic society + serfdom? You pointed out that the man isn't going to do any work if he doesn't have to, but with serfdom, serfs could do the work that is needed to keep the country running and in return they would get to live as equals in every way (except for having to do work, of course).

    Wage slavery is not freedom.

    In this society, I have the freedom to spend my money on silly shit. In communist society, I get a coupon to buy a bread and another one for one (1) boot.

    Its certainly the closest thing. True freedom is undesirable, most people are not born with a moral compass and cannot be expected to behave like civilized human beings without constant guidance. True freedom is anarchy, and the day it happens, we are all fucked.

    That means they wouldn't be happy.

    Under a True Christian's rule is the only true key to happiness.

    If you need to ask this, and the Love of Jesus flowing inside you doesn't tell you already, you have obviously not earned it.

    So, is this "Love of Jesus" installed on my soul by default, or do I have to patch it to the latest version?

    No, seriously though, I want to know how I can experience Jesus's love.

    Wage slavery doesn't exist. Slavery is when you're legally obligated to work for no monetary compensation and are legally owned by somebody/something. (In other words they can sign contracts for you regardless of your opinion.) If you're getting paid, and have the choice of quitting at any time, then it's not slavery. Let's pretend that wage slavery is that you're technically a slave but you still get paid. In that case the only instances I can think of that could be defined as "wage slavery" is working for the military or being a child.

    Children don't get paid. Unless you grew up in an upper-middle class white family, the only reason you did anything around the house was to avoid getting your ass beat.

    They can work for McDonald's (or some shit) and their earnings are, from what I understand, legally owned by their parents. Otherwise why would there be so many child actors bitching about their parents running off with their money?

    I can understand what you're trying to say, but in all seriousness, most children are completely incapable of fending for themselves. Of course there are exceptional kids, prodigies, or abusive families that they can't do a thing about, but that makes up a very small minority.

    communism was not good idea:

    international Jewish Banking Elite Funds the Jewish Bolshevik Revolution

    A cabal of wealthy and powerful jewish financiers/bankers - including Rothschild agents jacob schiff and Max Warburg -- being the initiators of the Communist ideology for the purpose their planned "New World Order" of world jewish/satanic conquest, funded the jewish Communist revolution in Russia.

    Schiff arranges for jewish revolutionaires such as Leon Trotsky (real name Lev Davidovich Bronstein) to come to New York City for training and sends them to Russia. Trotsky recruited expatriate young Russian jews from New York's large Russian jewish immigrant population, and trained them as revolutionaries. Warburg arranged for Vladimir Lenin to be transported through Germany to Russia in a sealed train to lead the Bolshevik conspirators.

    1917-1918 Bolshevik Revolution

    This revolution is not "Russian", but nothing more than a jewish takeover of Russia. The Bolshevik terrorists brutally slaughter Czar Nicholas II and his entire family, overthrow the Provisional Government in St Petersburg, seize control of the country, establish the Cheka (the secret police, predecessor to the NKVD and KGB) to quash dissent, and murder millions of those who resist.
    The Sept. 10, 1920 edition of The American Hebrew journal stated the following:

    "The Bolshevik revolution in Russia was the work of Jewish brains, of Jewish Dissatisfaction, of Jewish planning, whose work is to create a new order in the world. What was performed in so excellent a way in Russia, thanks to Jewish brains, and because of Jewish dissatisfaction and by Jewish planning, shall also through the same Jewish mental and physical forces become a reality all over the world."
