I say;- judge communism by its record of total failure and mass culling of large sections of the populations in the countries which fell victim to communist dictators.

There are no examples of communism causing anything but murder, misery, abject poverty and subjugation.

The strutting dictators stand smugly on their balconies viewing the forced cheering from the 1000s of tyrannized minions.

You are going around in a circle. You made that claim already and I asked you whether by "total failure" you meant the seventy five years it spent as a world superpower, during which time it invented satellites and put the first man into space?

I also pointed out that nine million people starve to death every single year in capitalist economies. The obvious fact of this pointless discussion is that you measure capitalism with one stick and communism with another, which of course is the result of your own raging far right bias and secret admiration for Hitler.

Poor old nomshit, you're still in a bad way.

Have you noticed that most loony leftist woks on this, and indeed other forums can only become activated by responding to the stated opinions of other participants?

The loony-leftist FILTH are, generally incapable of formulating and presenting their own viewpoints totally independent of the posted standpoints of others.

Hey, what about Hitler, the Nazis, the fascists, the Brown shirts, the black shirts, Mussolini, Himmler, big Sammy, wee Dorothy and wee Willy Winkie?

Let's forget momentarily that neither of the two people you have referenced are communists.

By the exact same (absence of) logic, capitalists who give money to charity or who donate to the poor are communist hypocrites.

Why exactly should communists living in capitalist regimes be forbidden to earn money? Your belief that only people ideologically aligned with you should be able to earn rewards was tried out in Germany during the 1930s. It didn't work out.
