I found this under a video of an East-German soldier jumping over barbed wire to escape East-Germany.

So good they needed to wall people in. Amazing how, when given the choice, the workers chose the system that supposedly exploits them. Curious indeed.

In Vietnam, it was so good that they shot boats full of people trying to escape after the war.

No, the wall was to stop the west from taking advantage of the great soviet social programs. They didn't have bread lines in the west, or guards to shoot you for trying to leave. Truly a glorious time to be alive.

The official name for the Wall was actually the Anti-Fascist Rampart.

With strategically weakened points to allow for soviet tanks to "support" the incoming revolution.

Yeah, just go to confirmationbias.com and read more of how the thing that presents itself as morally superior is morally superior! /s

I absolutely detest the reddit trolls who try to assign homework rather than actually engaging in argument. "If you disagree with me, go to X subreddit and read the posts there for a couple of weeks" "Go to X website" "Read some books by these 3 authors. Then we can have an informed discussion" "Go watch this 2 hour video of a guy droning on while stock footage plays. Come back and tell me what parts of his argument are wrong"

Also it is not like we couldn't do the same. First read this 1100 page book then we can talk. [https://cdn.mises.org/Capitalism%20A%20Treatise%20on%20Economics\_3.pdf](https://cdn.mises.org/Capitalism%20A%20Treatise%20on%20Economics_3.pdf)

Under Capitalism, Man exploits Man. Under Socialism, it's just the opposite.

God it grinds my gears how they are always so arrogant "go read hehe you know how to read right? hehe", you can tell most of them are teens going through their angsty rebelious phase

Ah yes, the shitty netsite of AzurescapeGoat

“Nooooo, you dont know what communism is!!!”

Why did the riots in Novocherkassk take place? Why did the Poznan riots take place? Why did the Teikovo strike happen? How did the regimes respond to these events? What was the penalty for turning up 15 mins late to work under the labour code of 1940? It's fine to argue against worker exploitation but to say that the old Socialist regimes of Eurasia did not practise it is complete rubbish.


Comrade_Lomrade

Chances are the dude saying this probably didn't even read a single book on socialism and just skim through a few Wikipedia links

Pol Pot had field days and Mao loved the phrase "hunger is the best medicine." Why it's so good KJU is keeping it all to himself.

WHY DOES EVERYONE THINK THAT COMMUNISUM AND SOCIALISM ARE THE SAME THING HOLY FUCK
