How is it that Communism and Socialism still exist in the world?
i've posted the fate of a few American Communists over the years, people like Emma Goldman and Lee Harvey Oswald, ...people who think Communism is the greatest thing since sliced bread , until they actually get to Russia and see what the reality is.
i stumbled across this the other day.
The Purge of 1937
A number of senior KPD leaders in exile were caught up in Joseph Stalin's Great Purge of 1937-38 and executed, among them Eberlein, Heinz Neumann, Hermann Remmele, Fritz Schulte and Hermann Schubert, or sent to the GULAG, like Margarete Buber-Neumann. Still others, like Gustav von Wangenheim and Erich Mielke, denounced their fellow exiles to the NKVD. Willi Münzenberg, the KPD's propaganda chief, was murdered in mysterious circumstances in France in 1940. The NKVD is believed to have been responsible.
these people fought for Communism in Germany, then when they are exiled, the same system and people they are fighting for , kill them.
is there any other clear defenition of stupid?
Most know that communism is GOVERNMENT OWNERSHIP, while socialism is GOVERNMENT CONTROL (HANDOUTS).
That is where they see through their laziness, the government will take care of them.
What they do not see, is that the government will NOT take care of them as well as they could do for themselves.
Those who dance, appear insane to those who do not hear the music.
Those who believe, appear ignorant to those who do not know God.
Socialism = Communism on the installment plan
Telling an Angry Liberal to calm down, works about as well as trying to baptize a cat
