The Communists only won the Civil War because they drafted people into their army. That isn't a revolution. That is slavery.

Clueless. The communists won because their politics was of benefit to the vast majority of the population. The old government had been conscripting soldiers into its army for years, if you ever heard of the first world war.
For example land reform for the majority of poor peasants, which similarly was a major reason why the Chinese revolution succeeded and why millions of peasants supported the communists.
The Bolsheviks had big support from workers in cities, who were starving due to speculation in food and poor due to exploitation by the capitalists, and soldiers who saw no end to the war.
As a matter of fact, the Bolsheviks and Socialist Revolutionaries were backed by the majority of the population, and not the right-wing, which despite cowardly foreign support from Great Britain and many others, failed.

Correction:

Clueless. The communists won because their politics were conceived in such a way that it would appeal to the vast majority of the population.

Bread: Agriculture recovered quickly after the civil war ended above pre-war levels.
Peace: Signed a peace treaty to end the war with Germany. The fact that reactionaries and foreign powers fought in a civil war against them, sure that's not peaceful, but they could've just surrendered then.
Land: Land was redistributed from the feudal estate system under the tsar that kept peasants living under conditions of the 15th century.

The UK does not subsidize phones. Anyways the point is mute. Tito is pointing out that you are seeking to change a system that granted you such great technological advances which were simultaneously made cheap enough for even the poorest among us.

LMAO. You guys truly dare sit there and defend capitalism while wearing clothes, an invention from the ages back long before feudalism? Obviously if you wear clothes you gotta be in favor of a tribal stone age society!

"Da das Papier nicht reichte, um alle Abo-Wünsche zu erfüllen, wurden selbst die Zeitungen der kommunistischen Partei immer wieder für Neubestellungen gesperrt. Anders gesagt: Die DDR war wirtschaftlich so schwach, dass sie nicht einmal ihre Ideologie so weit verbreiten konnte, wie es möglich gewesen wäre."

Translated: "Since the paper was not enough to fulfill all subscription requests, even the Communist Party newspapers were repeatedly blocked for new orders. In other words, the GDR was so weak economically that it could not even spread its ideology so widely as it would have been possible."

The GDR was so weak that they didn't have enough paper for their own state run propaganda newspapers.

I'd rather defend Capitalism on my internet than defend Communism on a stone tablet because we ran out of paper.

Don't get your point at all. Clothes are not prohibited anywhere. Extreme communist countries like Cuba, Venezuela and North Korea however censorship internet and limit the use of television and computers almost exclusively to perpetuate their project of power. Go to North Korea/Cuba and ask them if they know what a meme is.

In fact, projects of monopolizing power are pretty common among communist countries. They tried doing it Brazil but thankfully we're certain to get a right wing president next year, since we have two solid options now, should both decide to run.

Communists, why not go to Venezuela for a visit? Communism is like ISIS. People who really know about it want to leave.


Haha seconded and i take off my hat for you. This was one of my subtle points in my first post, they live in the first world and never had a glimpse of what it is to live with a state as big as mother russia. There's ALWAYS exodus of people from communist countries because they can't stand that shit for life. People from Venezuela migrates to Acre or Rondônia, people from Cuba always did it, trying to go anywhere. We even have a migration problem now because poor people without education in Venezuela wants to become a Brazilian citizen, and Cuban "medical assistants" that claim (with our government's propaganda) to be experts and a reference of actual doctors were brought by the red government as a "program" that "totally is not meant to donate free money from our astronomic taxes to Cuba". We're literally letting the scum of the world get inside here because they can't stand your shit anymore. These people don't have education nor experience because well, I doubt these countries ever gave them the opportunity to rise economically. This is how garbage the dream of a good-for-nothing bourgeouis that never worked his entire life, much like commies nowadays, is in practice.

Can keep this going whenever you want. I love talking about how Marx was probably a high af bitch with daddy issues and used his romances to escape from reality. You didnt forget that releasing these "literary works" was something he did to satisfy himself, right? :D

Why don't you go to Somalia? A prime example of capitalism!
Venezuela isn't communist. Even if it were, it doesn't mean all communists automatically favor it any more than you must support Somalia.
Large parts of the economy are under capitalist control, and US is trying to infiltrate the country to destabilize it, like they tried with Cuba, Guatemala and Chile, when they defied American companies' exploitation. The people in Venezuela want to own their own natural resources, but American companies who have been stealing them for decades are upset and want their robber government to intervene so they can steal them back.
Notice Cuba is doing significantly better than Venezuela. It's nonsense to say Venezuela's problems are because of "evil communism". If anything, they're because of robber capitalism.

they [communists] live in the first world

Made up nonsense. You would think it would be a cue that every communist revolution so far has happened in what were third world countries.

There's ALWAYS exodus of people from communist countries

There's always the remnants of a capitalist class that's sore about their loss, can't stand not being above everyone and leeching off other people's work. Do I feel sorry for them? No
Communist countries tend to be embargoed, sanctioned, attempted infiltrated, destabilized, covertly sabotaged and invaded by capitalist countries, so it's no wonder they haven't risen to their full potentials. That doesn't show socialism doesn't work. It shows capitalist countries are so afraid of socialism succeeding that they're desperate to prevent it.

These people don't have education nor experience because well, I doubt these countries ever gave them the opportunity to rise economically.

Again bullshit. Cuba has about the same life expectancy as USA despite being much poorer, and vastly longer life expectancy compared to countries with similar wealth, ironically longer than Brazil. To say their doctors aren't qualified just shows how you live in your own made up reality. In countries like Cuba, USSR and China, literacy and education thrived after the revolutions, was opened up to everyone and vastly improved compared to before the revolution.

I love talking about how Marx was probably a high af bitch with daddy issues and used his romances to escape from reality. You didnt forget that releasing these "literary works" was something he did to satisfy himself, right? :D

Beyond pathetic. You can't argue with communism and ran out of stuff to make up so gotta go for Marx's personal life. I couldn't care less if Marx had daddy issues.
