Communism/Socialism: "It just hasn't been done in the 'right' way yet."


Mao emerges as one of the greatest mass murderers in history, responsible for the deaths of at least 45 million people between 1958 and 1962.
It is not merely the extent of the catastrophe that dwarfs earlier estimates, but also the manner in which many people died: between two and three million victims were tortured to death or summarily killed, often for the slightest infraction. When a boy stole a handful of grain in a Hunan village, local boss Xiong Dechang forced his father to bury him alive. The father died of grief a few days later. The case of Wang Ziyou was reported to the central leadership: one of his ears was chopped off, his legs were tied with iron wire, a ten kilogram stone was dropped on his back and then he was branded with a sizzling tool – punishment for digging up a potato.  Looking back on the Great Leap Forward | History Today

Your Say

Yeah. I take a dim view of Commies, myself. The dems flirt full frontal with Communism, and it irks the living ---- out of me.

The Democrat party was taken over by the Communists totally in the last seven and a half years. Totally. You may call them Marxists, identically same monster.

The problem with communism is that the communists never experience it. They administer it.

James, It is possible to rectify that. One only needs the will to take up the club.

I have a good idea that we may be given front row seats to a marxist attempt at running the US government if that clinton bitch is elected president. If it occurs, I won't use a club.
