No sweetie, it’s anti tumblr social justice. Because actual social justice and what tumblr calls social justice are two completely different things. I’m all for social justice, but what this site does is just toxic.

Also, lol at you just assuming I’m a capitalist. Personally, I don’t think any one system is the answer. From what I’ve learned, I think a mixture of mostly socialism with a dash of capitalism would work best. But, then again, I have the humility to say that I’m not an economist and I probably have no idea what I’m talking about because economics is a really complex issue that can’t just be solved with ideals.

Also, your examples are really American and modern leaning. First things first: people had been trading slaves LONG before the American slave trade. Slavery is not married to capitalism. Don’t believe me? Pick up the Old Testament. There was no capitalism around during Biblical times, and yet there are still slaves and references to slavery and even rules about slavery in the Bible. Weird, huh?

Look, I’m sorry you’re an angry American teenager who’s disillusioned and frustrated with our current socioeconomic system. I am. I’ve been an angry teenager, and I am currently disillusioned and frustrated. But if you took the time to actually learn about the realities instead of the ideas of communism, you’d find out that it’s actually a deeply flawed system that runs mainly on ideals. And those ideals just do not transfer over to life as smoothly as one would hope. Which is why I said that communism works on paper, not in practice.

after all, nothing screams “ideals” louder than empirical analysis of class relations, right?!

if you know what dialectical materialism is then you know there’s not even a modicum of idealism in marxism. if you don’t know what dialectical materialism is then you shouldn’t be talking about socialism.

try proposing an actual critique of socialism rather than just hurling pathetically vague disparagement like “deeply flawed” “works on paper not in practice (< this ones my favorite mindless anticommunist propaganda phrase)” “runs mainly on ideals”

it’s also funny because we’re like 250 years into the establishment of the U.S. and literally none of liberalism’s ideals have been actualized (freedom, liberty, justice etc) soooooooooo not really much ground to stand on there

…you do realize I’m critiquing communism, right? And you do realize that communism and socialism are two very different things, right? Like, I know they both come from Marxism, and I know Lenin thought that communism was the next step after socialism, but they’re two very different things.

Socialism: State owns properties and goods that drive the economy. State DOES NOT own private property (example: what clothes a person buys, leisure goods, pets, etc.), but it can seize private property for the economic production of the State (like a factory).

Communism: HOW IT’S SUPPOSED TO BE - the people living within the country form the state and communally own everything. There is no private property because everyone owns a piece of everything.
HOW IT’S WORKED IN REAL LIFE - the State owns, controls, and dictates everything. There is no private property because the State owns all of it. [Source]

Also, I’m sorry, how are you not free? Are you being kept in your home because of a State imposed curfew or some kind of arrest or internment? Are your words being censored in any form? Are there any books that you can’t read or sites you can’t access because the government says they’re harmful or dangerous? Chances are if you have the ability to openly complain about how you’re not “free,” you actually are free.

At what point in America’s history do you think there’s been freedom? The country rose from the genocide of one race and the enslavement of another, and our judicial system targets people of color so that it can legally enslave them and exploit them for profit. Heavily militarized police? 25% of the world’s prisoners? Labor camps for undocumented immigrants? Judges literally selling people to prisons? An egregiously large military that we’ve used to maintain global hegemony? Selling weapons to an apartheid state? An incredibly invasive intelligence apparatus that can even record people through their own laptop cameras?

In capitalism, the capitalist class controls and dictates virtually everything? Even Adam Smith recognized the purpose of the state in a capitalist social organization is to serve the bourgeois: “Civil government, so far as it is instituted for the security of property, is in reality instituted for the defense of the rich against the poor, or of those who have some property against those who have none at all.” 

And socialist countries have improved their standard of living universally, the majority of russia continuously polls that they preferred the USSR, cuba has the best healthcare in the world, etc etc.

But hey, I’m sure your high school history class was right!

The USSR and Cuba were/are communist States, NOT socialist. There’s a difference and I already explained it. Please stop using the two synonymously.

And again, the fact that you’re able to point out all these things that are wrong with America and its history and NOT fear being imprisoned or killed for what you’ve just said, says a lot about how much freedom you as a person actually have. In some of your arguments, you’re conflating freedom with justice, and, unfortunately for everyone, the two are not the same thing.

Also, where are your sources for these so-called polls? And actually, a quick google search shows that the UK has the best ranked health-care system in the world for 2014. Unless you’re using the World Health Organization’s findings from 2000, in which case, it’s France. And look at that! Cuba’s all the way down in slot number 39. THAT’S BELOW THE US.

I’m anxious to hear what your etc. is though. Because so far, you have yet to show me a shred of evidence for communism. You’ve just yelled at me about how bad America and capitalism are.

Oh my god there is no such thing as a communist state; communism is a stateless society!!

The fact that I am able to point things out has nothing to do with the fact that censorship exists??? Why would you even think that? Freedom and justice are both abstract ideological concepts that share plenty of contexts?

Yeah Cuba’s healthcare system is pretty terrible which is why rich people are always flying there to receive treatment, and why hurricane katrina killed 0 people in Cuba despite passing directly over it

Honestly this is like talking about calculus with a kindergartner and if you’d read any marxist literature at all you’d understand why communism is necessary.

It’s ok though, we’re still at least a couple decades from capitalism bringing on the potential end of the human race so you have time!
