Quote:

Actually it was the Soviet People who wanted to be more like the US, not Gorbachev or Kruschev




hm yes and no , yeltsin was elected for the presidency of the russian territory and subsequently made a coup and then started an election which he won with heavy financial backing.

gorbachev was a social-democrat. most of the russian population was attracted to capitalism because it was at a higher standard of living, this is called cultural imperialism, just like why canada has so many american movies in theatre and american song on the radio. fact is, people wanted all the benefits of the soviet state with the benefit of being a capitalist state, more and better consumer goods, higher wages etc. they didn't get both, they are now starting to have those consumer good and high wages and still don't have the priviledge from the soviet states. most people living in the former communist country who milited for capitalism are deceived of what happened, some want to go back some don't. why was there an old guy complaining that they have no job and are reduced to begging in the movie 'goodbye lenin'.

Thanks for noticing.  Yes, I opted out of ratings because of vicious attacks by flesh robot automatons who live for nothing but to consume chemicals to stimulate the pleasure centers of their brains and who are prepared to commit treason against their country and wreck their country's economy if it means more drugs for them.

Just don't respond to him. There are a few here I don't bother with as I find discussing things with mental midgets to be a waste of time.

I could use the ignore button but I find that to be an astonishingly weak, pussy move.

You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity. What one person receives without working for another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for that my dear friend is the beginning of the end of any nation. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it. ~ Adrian Rogers

I like to respond to him on occasion. Just like I often like to point out the ugly shit in the world. I could ignore it. I often ignore it. Sometimes I don't want to ignore it.:shrug:

Laid-off paramedic saves life while delivering pizza

Quote:

Keiley said recently moved to Colorado after he was laid off from his paramedic job in Illinois.




See why don't those lazy bastards just travel all the way around the country to take a minimum wage job that doesn't use their professional skills. Just because this whole incident was caused by bankers who are in many cases still swimming in money is no excuse for people to be mad or expect the support of the government that misguidedly allowed such actions from the banks.

i never said they want to, most of russian citizens want to keep capitalist russia now that putin is in power and is a strong figure which brought back stability. yes i know most of eastern europe or other countries like this are pretty hostile to communism including poland. but to say that all their labor only contributed to russia's good is bullshit . what happened is that  yes, russia more or less forced/pressured these countries to specialize themselves and in the long run it hurt them especially when the soviet union felled, for example cuba pretty much only produced sugar, and the united states still wouldn't lift the embargo.

what i meant is that most soviet citizens thought that they would keep all the priviledges of soviet life yet have higher wages and better access to western goods. one of the biggest scandal was that party members had special shops and a much better access to such goods than normal citizens, which greatly contributed to disillusion toward the socialist ideal.

you just said it--ideal...ideally socialism would work. in theory communism would work...the problem that all people who believe in utopianism like this is that ideally we would have great and benevolent leaders to lead us to a better life...it never happens...in the end government is not a utopian machine but a group of people controlling other people and the group in power ALWAYS looks out for their own good...i think the real problem when putting socialism/communism into practice, in the real world, is that it attracts leaders who treat their citizens like shit...it attracts these people...this ideology attracts people like mao, and hitler, and stalin...and che and castro for that matter...shitty fucking leaders...this shit about authoritarianism is like the drug war...oh our policies aren't working, well we need stronger policies...we need more government because what we have isn't working...the answer is always more, more, more, whether its drug warriors or politicians...when the fuck is everyone going to wake up and realize that they can't centrally fix problems thru government

you misunderstand socialism and communism, under communism there is no leader, people take all decisions, they don't even elect people to make decision on their behalf. you cannot fix every problem with the free market.

and argh. hitler is not a socialist :smile:.

As do Stalin and Lenin.  There is a world of difference between the reality of communism and the hypothetical/fictional "pure communism".  A stateless society will not work until greed is no longer part of human nature.  Good luck with that...
