"Socialism Never Works"

Even if one accepts the USSR was actually socialist (which it wasn't, because it never met the definition of socialism), that was the only time. Every other so-called socialist state in history was at one time, a puppet of the USSR.

Tell me, when in human history, has a society ever had the means of production owned by the workers over the long term? It certainly never happened in the USSR or its puppets.

So how in God's name can an ideology "fuck up every time it was given an opportunity to work" when it was never given an opportunity to work in the first place?


"Not real Communism Socialism"

I see you're going even further down the Far-Left rabbit hole now. How lovely.

And you're factually incorrect. Not every Socialist state in history was a puppet of the USSR. Albania, Yugoslavia, Zimbabwe, and many others were either independent or firmly in the PRC's bloc.

So what's your point, exactly? That not only has no country in the history of mankind ever been Communist, but they also haven't been Socialist either? Alright, let's assume that's the case. So all the dozens of successful revolutions of the 20th century that saw Far-Left regimes come to power were never Socialist, even though that's certainly what they tried to be. Ergo, Socialism is an unachievable pipe dream that destroys economies and results in the deaths of millions, all for nothing. And Communism is even moreso.

Thank you for successfully refuting your own ideology. Please help yourself to a boobie prize.


F**king please, have you heard of the Indian State of Kerala? It's a Socialist state that is actually socialist! Check out this Washington Post article explaining their successes; http://wapo.st/2zhBOR9

Looks like they need a lesson on Stirner's views on property rights. Perhaps this will help.

This site stresses me out, so I rarely come on here anymore. I'll try to be civil and respectful towards those I'm debating on here. If you don't extend the same courtesy then I'll probably just ignore you.

If we've been friendly in the past and you want to keep in touch, shoot me a telegram
