America is quite convincing, and forgiving.

Never be afraid to ask simple questions.

Funny

how some people still can't pick up on brain exercises and fun activities. Or is it just sad? Good post.

I'll respond to all recent naysayers here...

Communism requires Violence

Are people on DP forced to come here and/or threatened with violence if they don't. Didn't think so.

No.

No. and No. Freakin drama queens.

Freedom of association

and ability to disseminate uncensored information are not usually associated with communist regimes. If you were talking about socialism, a centralized body would have to take over the means of production and be able to coerce people to redistribute knowledge.

Nope. Try again.

LOL! Fun thought exercise!

But nope. It is a vehicle for dissemination of information, like a real "Free Press". Some write (provide), many read (acquire), and a lot do both (share).

Freedom of information = Liberty. If it were a Communist plot, the DP would be little else than a bullhorn spouting pro _____ or pro _____ and / or anti _____ material--and *heavily* censored at that--continuously.

People here (including even lowly broke-as-a-joke, scrabbling debt slave non-members such as myself) are allowed not only to participate, but also to question and dissent. This is key.

China

Lots of endorsement of Chinese policies and workings here from what I have witnessed. This is the only concern I have regarding this issue. But it is a sizeable concern.

We have to understand the Chinese government is an abomination and I pray and hope the people rise up there against those lunatics who run the place there imo.

Other than this absolutely not.

Answer: no.

Answer: no.

Or not yet, anyway, if ever. Evidence?

Well, nobody found appropriate to praise the "qualities" of the socialo-communist plan when I gave this no-brainer primer about it:

http://www.dailypaul.com/295445#comment-3168033

(was just an exercise of style; bear with my silliness)

Either that or those who secretly found it cool "in the principle" (as I would already hear all the time 20 years ago as a student) were, say, "overwhelmingly too shy" to expose themselves.

And, thing is, I've rarely (ever?) encountered a shy self-proclaimed socialist or communist... as they tend to brag a lot about their genius "plans", while swimming with delight in their flows of gross ignorance about human nature (which is naturally... much imperfect) and their contempt for individuals (who are humanely... very precious).

So...

Q.E.D.

Good points, but not exactly true

It's more like "From each according to his willingness to contribute content, to each according to his desires to consume content."

Willingness to contribute content does not equal ability.
Desire to consume content does not equal need.

Communists

Religious Obscenities

"It might be in somesense “logical” that Communists would arrest priests and pastors as counter revolutionaries. But why were priests compelled by the Marxists in the Romanian prison of Piteshti to say Mass over excrement and urine? Why were Christians tortured into taking Communion with these as the elements? Why such an obscene mockery of religion? Why did the Romanian Orthodox priest Roman Braga, whom I knew personally when he was a prisoner of the Communists, and who presently resides in the U.S.A., have his teeth knocked out one by onewith an iron rod in order to make him blaspheme? The Communists had explained to him and others: “If we kill you Christians, you go to heaven.But we don’t want you to be crowned martyrs. You should curse God first and then go to hell.” In the prison of Piteshti the Communists would force a very religious prisoner to be “baptized”daily by putting his head into the barrel in which his fellowsufferers had fulfilled their necessities, meanwhile obliging the other prisoners to sing the baptismal service. A theology student was forced to dress in white sheets (in imitation of Christ’s robe), and a phallus made out of soap was hung around his neck with a string. Christians were beaten to insanity to force them to kneel before such a mocking image of Christ. After they had kissed thesoap, they had to recite part of the liturgy.
Some prisoners were compelled to take off their trousers and sit with their naked bottoms onopen Bibles. Such blasphemous practices were perpetrated for at least two years with the full knowledge of the Party’s top leadership. What have such indignities to do with socialism and the well-being of the proletariat? Were their anticapitalist slogans not merely pretexts for organizing Satanic blasphemies and orgies? Marxists are supposed to be atheists who believe in neither heaven nor hell. In these extreme circumstances, Marxism has lifted its atheistic mask to reveal its true face, the face of Satanism.Communist persecution of religion might have a human explanation, but the fury of such perverse persecution can only be Satanic."

BTW ...Stalin had 18 summer homes if I remember correctly.

This makes no sense.

Wasn't that quote about workers producing goods at the best of their ability (which even the communists understand varies) and their fellow workers being provided with the fruits of their total collective labour based on their needs (as judged by their fellow workers).

Lord Acton, Lord Chief Justice of England, 1875 - "The issue which has swept down the centuries and which will have to be fought sooner or later is the People v. The Banks."

Probably not

However
Yuri Bezmenov did say that one of the stages of conquering a nation subversively
was ”demoralization”.
;-)

"If this mischievous financial policy [greenbacks], which has its origin in North America, should become endurated down to a fixture, then that government will furnish its own money without cost. It will pay off its debts and be without debts. It will hav

Demoralization...

Yuri Bezmenov, on "demoralization" of America (aka brainwashing)

Is DP a communist plot? Highly doubtful. Could some group or organization, government or otherwise perform "active measures" against the liberty movement and DP? No doubt they could.
