    Interesting comments about commumism

    Wish I'd copied it, but a guy posted some comments on another forum the other day by way of comparing communism to some other things going on in the world.

    He observed that in the early 20th Century, Marx and Engels divided the people of Russia by pitting the working class (proletariat) against the owner class (the capitalists). That worked because capitalism wasn't well-developed at the time and the Industrial Revolution had created a huge lower class of people who worked long hours in mines and factories for starvation wages. They were able to turn these poor and overworked people against the wealthy factory and property owners largely because a two-class system is inherently weak.

    When the communists attempted to spread their influence to the U. S. in the 1940's and 50's, they tried the same tactic through labor unions and liberal universities, but increased opportunity and the growing middle class in America caused that tactic to fail. So, in the 1960's through the 80's, they attempted to exploit the racial situation to divide us, and in spite of race riots and other violence, they failed again.

    So in recent years, they've been using racism (black and hispanics against whites), sexism (women against men), homophobia (gays against straights), islamophobia (Muslims against Christians), and all the other tools of the various minority groups to divide us and create social upheaval.

    People tend to scoff at the suggestion that communists are still trying to get a foothold here, but there's lots of evidence they were and are directly involved in the various social problems we face today.

    Kind of makes you think ...
    If someone blows up a school with a bomb they go after the bomber ... if someone shoots up a school they go after the gun.

    A privilege is just a right that has been taken away by government.

    Political correctness is cowardice wrapped in a lie.

    I agree with your general point.
    Today's progressives can trace their ideological ,lineage to the Fellow-travelers and paid socialist media coverage of the former soviet Unions ideological warfare against the West from earlier this century.

    ironically that is why the american left is now virulently against anything that Russia is or does.. because they have freed themselves from the shackles of communism.. and "progressives" is just "communism-lite".
    "In the end we all just play the roles given us... Sometimes they dont fit so well,... but I guess we make do."

    Dont forget MultiMedia forums!!

    Oh I think corporate America is doing fine on its own spreading this ****. In Russia people have a job. Here many are on welfare. Different system. Not all bad, not all good. Are system is likely worse at the moment. At least they might win the lottery for a decent job. ****, you could spend $250K on an education here and never see the better side of a Benjamin.

    This is something I ran into the other day that fits with this thread. It was a article about the racial left and the agenda they are pushing.

    Much of the ensuing discussion was about the media (and social media) being almost totally controlled now by the left and how they were using it to leverage their agenda. One of the commenters listed the following:

    Look up the following in Google Images:


    White woman with children.
    White couple.
    White American Inventors.
    European history people.
    Happy American couple.
    European people art.
    White man and white woman.

    Now, it's no real surprise to me that there would be some skewing of search results - pretty much everyone knows that happens, but the extent it is happening with certain search criteria is alarming !! The Thought Police are clearly in place and distorting internet content !!

    Day-um! I knew Google was skewing the search results, but that's nuts! History and culture are being rewritten right before our eyes.

    It truly doesn't matter what you type into the net right now. Whatever you type you will be led to an advertisement to sell you something. So nothing online really matters anymore. But a site like this one or similar have something to say. What they have to say doesn't start or end with
    "Why did this idiot write this", or similar. The internet was bad when it first started but it is a complete joke now, generally speaking.

    Yeah, the ads have become super invasive.
    I now have to run with Ad Blocker & and Ad Blocker - Blocker, Blocker (to block the pop-ups that demand you turn off your ad blocker or pay)

    The 'targeted' ads are also wicked annoying - do a search for some product & you get ads for it for months

    I would let the ads thru if they were not so greedy & invasive about it !

    We've strayed way off-topic, unless the commies are serving up those ads. But you're right ... I run an ad blocker for my own privacy, and now many sites will spank you for it and not show their content. To me, that's pissy behavior, since they have obviously decided to team up with 3rd party advertisers and make extra money by making me look at ads. And if their site is funded by making their visitors wade through ads to get their content, I'm not sure they deserve to have a site.

    Oh, and those targeted ones. Grrr. You don't dare even peek at something just to get more info without bringing down a deluge of ads on yourself. And many retailers are stupid enough to keep advertising something to you after you've bought it. If they're sophisticated enough to know what you looked at, then they should be sophisticated enough to stop advertising it to you when you've already bought the damn thing!

    Clear you cookies but keep the passwords. These keeps the targeted ad's away and content away.

    I may be wrong, but I think some sites - like Amazon - store info on their own servers, so clearing cookies won't fend them off. They're relentless.
