I know it's facing the wrong way, just look at it, as a new perspective of communism... A simbol thet represents unety! We will together fight against the fachist and capitalist scum that is destroying us! --- EDIT: New version: [link]
I would like it becouse it is good picture, but first thing that comes to my mind are milions of victims that socialismus had killed. Only socialists in modern history had idea of wiping all nations and classes in name of grater good. no other ideology havent become so brutal, blind and evil. Inquisition, reconquista in south america, gold rush in the north, wars of faith in europe and all black pages of white man history seem to look so harmless in comprision to comunism and national-socialism. I can not understand how can anybody be still so naive or shortsighted and didn't made conclusion that everytime when socialism gain real power it had ended tragic to the country and people that its corupts.
I havent been on in a while, sorry for such a late reply, but I have to disagree with you, and I dont want to offend you but your comment is very ignorant. Socialism has nothing to do with violence and all the killings that happened. All of those countries abused the teachings of Marx and similarly minded people to gain control for their own benefits, but you cant say that's the fault of Marx or communism in particular. If I said that Jesus is to blame for the brutal murders of tens of millions of people in the name of god and destroying the lives of hundreds of millions of people, I would be attacked from all sides.. All I can say to you, first read on the subject a bit, learn what communism really is and is trying to achieve and remember that the Communist manifesto was written more than a 150 years ago and it doesn't apply to this world the same, there are a lot of very good ideas that have built on it and are made for this age.. We aren't the naive or shortsighted ones, I'm sorry. Have a nice day
Well..the idea of communism is a good one, and I really like the soviet union...it has something mighty about itself. But then some idiots came along and ruined the idea, which is really sad. You know, wasn't there this guy who said "Democracy is a bad type of political organization but I don't know a better one" ? I think he was right, because communism was ruined by too many people. In fact, it turned into fascism, just like Nazi Germany...sigh. Otherwise the communism would be a great idea, I guess I'm not communistic and not fascistic, though I'm not the "pure" capitalist either. Don't get me wrong, I love Russia, it's an opportunity for me. But I think I got your point with this, it's an interesting view I shall think about a bit.
good picture, though i am Capitolist American, and not the least bit Russian, i like all governments, since they all have their pros and cons. Thus, i have nothing to fuss about, unliek some Capitolists... *cough ~Combarus cough*
Why does everyone always say that communism is a good idea? To kill everyone thet does not agree with you(Marx)? To always put employment over the nature of our planet (Marx)? To abolish free speech(Marx)?
yes.. that is a good idea... If todays "reds" had tried to live in a communist country a couple of years, their minds would perhaps be different.
And speaking of fascism, the communist system is a perfect example of the ideology. I know that many commies say that Stalin was not a real communist, but he was very sceptical to foreign communists, and imprisoned and murderer jews for their faith. Saying that you are a commie, but you don't like the murders of other commies, is like saying you are a nazi, but you don't like Hitler. Onestly.
Firefox is a great example of socialism. Mozilla is payed only from Google a sum og $57 million (2006). Do you think this money goes to the people? You are much mistaken.
This is a nice photo, great shadowing. Does Nakkimakkara want this to evolve into a huge political discussion?
who says communists are here to answer the world's problems? it's sad if you think this way. ALL of US should try to do that. after all, is it so wrong to try and fight for sth better? so now what- povery, crime, hunger and starvation seem so pretty to look at now? oh right, i'm guessing those people deserve it right? after all, it's their fault if they live in the dangerous parts of this world and all they want is just to live- right? and God? what's that? u're tellin us that we're tryin to create utopia, when you're living in one? please- the only thing communism is going for is just a great idea. no one said it'll exist. but we might as well try. without you, that is. and guess what? i'm more than happy about it. it's just so obvious that u're an american---
Ha ha ha GOD? You are so Naive! You acuse me of beliving in something that will never exist, but you belive in something that has never existed! you belive in a Book that was written by cattle-sacrificing primitives whou tought every animal species in the world lived within walking distance of Noah's house! Get a life!
he he, I like star wars only for the amazing artwork they did (the cities, spacecraft, etc.) And will have to change the avatar... dont even like it.... plus I am a socialist, everythin mine is also from my friends....
lol. forgot that idea that you could accuse Star Wars for being elitist (the rebel alliance proper was formed from a bunch of former old republic senators and whatnot-granted there were plenty of grassroots rebellion....)
I like the point you are trying to make...sadly, 95% of the internet is made up of idiots, hence your first few comments. I like Communisum as an idea, unfortunately too many people make it so that it could never reach it's true potential.
