Congratulations guys! You're fans of the most hateful and destructive political ideology ever to have existed. How exactly can you overlook the billions of deaths that marxism has caused? Stupid, middle-class, hypocritical class warriors.
:confused: Explain?

Im not a member, I just was browsing this out of interest. You seem to have a wrong grasp of things however. Are you telling me that no other political systems have caused such damage to man?

It was quite interesting! Although I believe some of the things he said to be greatly idealist. At least in the short term

All outdated with no relevance to our world today as things have changed.

Something new based on logic and reason revolving around equal shares of resources in a socialist manner using renewable energy to fuel the world without affecting the reward system of capitalism or democracy and freedom in general would be nice.

I like this guy.

He doesn't say he is a Marxist, he says he sympathizes with the ideal regarding the quite obvious unjust systems that capitalism utilizes.


Like i said above, NEW SYSTEM PLEASE

the "reward system" in a Socialist society would be one based on the improvment of ones self and of ones species rather than one based purely on material gain.

"the accumulation of wealth is no longer the driving force in our lives, we work to better ourselves and the rest of humanity"

Also, if you get the time, look into "Homage to Catalonia" by George Orwell. No-one can deny the brilliance of anarcho-syndicalism.

Yeah, its a thing called "libertarian communism". Essentially, Marxism aims towards a stateless, classless society but first the working class society must seize the state. Anarchists think society would look much difference if we just did away with the state and replaced it with grassroots workers' organisations. 1984, is actually a good example of communist literature (which is not something most people realise) because it debunks both the more authoritarian practices of Stalinism and the way capitalism is going.

I think if everyone can get there hands on technology and the means of production we will see far greater technological and scientific developments in society (at the moment it is just gets sold off for a profit).

Confiscation of private property (Namely the means of production) from the capitalist few, such that it can be run by the working classes for the benefit of all.

Thats the problem though isn't it? It goes against human nature so much so, that an oppressive regime is needed to maintain the communist society.

I know a lad who is a member, and his a nice guy, I just dont aggree with his political opinion like he don't aggree with mine...
It doesn't make him a bad person....
Since when does subjectivity nulify a moral position? I don't think any BNP member can be a nice guy, BNP members don't hold a political position they hold a racist ideology!
