Kinda wanna make a post of that but that might be political

2019-06-01 03:28:41 UTC  

ya i love when they talk of the working class

2019-06-01 03:28:47 UTC  

Guys like that really annoy me because they are exactly the type of people that think that if a Communist revolution ever took place in the United States, they would automatically be gifted with some kind of well paying, well-to-do job that would require very little manual labor on their parts. In other words, they would basically be nothing more than glorified, card carrying party members. The truth is if a Communist revolution ever did take place in the United States, those idiots who think that about themselves would probably end up as nothing more than menial labor

Even though that I am a libertarian socialist, or at least that's what my political ideology is most closely associated with, I am actually working class. I have experienced poverty. I know what it is to not know where the food money is going to be coming from, and I'd actually know how much a gallon of milk a costs. So when I see idiots like that, my 1st thought is wow, you really have no idea what any of these movements actually are

The cure for commies

2019-06-01 03:32:16 UTC  

It's ironic because even though that by the standards that I think most of you probably would have, I am an absolute leftist. But I share in your complete disdain for communism, primarily because of the fact that These people that promote its are exactly the type of people that would end up becoming people like Stalin

2019-06-01 03:33:05 UTC  

Like, it's funny because they are always the 1st to say that true communism has never been tried and that there has never actually been a true Communist state, but that statement right there already proves that they would absolutely become the next Stalin because it already shows that they completely misunderstand Marx

2019-06-01 03:33:21 UTC  

The man literally wrote that communism is supposed to be a post capitalist stateless, classless

You know, I always thought the exact same thing, but then I started actually reading up on it and the concept behind it is really interesting. To put it simply, libertarian socialism is basically a school of thought of socialism that rejects the idea of centralizing all of the power over the societie and the economy with the government's. So instead of having a command economy where the government controls everything and private property is all but abolished, you get something that actually has a chance of success. It's not perfect, obviously, but it does have some interesting ideas and also some badd ideas no different than any other political ideology. Also on the subject of the words contradicting one another, there is actually some interesting history behind the phrase. It's really only in the United States that's libertarianism is actually associated with capitalism and the right wing as a whole. All the way into the 1800s and even the 1900s, libertarianism was actually associated with leftist anti-authoritarian movements. So that includes anarchists some of these socialist movements, and a few others

2019-06-01 03:37:27 UTC  

And anyway, I am not actually someone who refers to themselves as a libertarian socialist because as I said, I have my own school of thought that is not entirely in agreements with several aspects of libertarian socialism. But it is what my ideology most closely can be described as

No, it's because they got rid of all the taxes and regulations on them starting in the 70s through lobbyists

2019-06-01 03:43:28 UTC  

Dude, look at the 2019 budget. They paid only 7% of all the revenue for the government, while we paid 49% in income tax and 37%in payroll. Meanwhile job and economic growth is barely fluctuating. They talk about that all the time on every financial news channel and paper.
