While the past forms of communism/socialism make people so poor, hopeless, and brainwashed
Socialism doesn't have poor, nor rich. That's the point, but of course NATO says that everyone is poor. Hopeless? More hopeful than Americans, who focus propaganda more on we must keep them off, while Soviet propaganda: they will never be able to get on. Brainwashed, this is not socialism that does this, this is authoritarianism and happens just as much (perhaps more) in "capitalist" countries.
Capitalism makes ***few*** folk so rich and technologically advanced that these folk become lazy, ignorant, materialistic and fat, while the rest starve.
