Communism? Try fascism. Obviously if the so-called Western "democracies" were able to abandon their ostensibly democratic institutions in less than 2 years, they weren't really functioning democracies to begin with.

I wouldn't call what the US is descending into "socialism." Far from it, since the ongoing destruction of what remains of America is almost entirely at the hands of capitalists and their megacorporations. More like a neoliberal globalist medical fascism or even techno-fascism.

Yup. It's Darwinism at work.

Not sure why you're getting so angry, since there's no disagreement here.

That's a good point about the etymology of capitalism though. It was originally used disparagingly.

But that's the thing, Marx never had any blueprints whatsoever for revolution, accumulating power or establishing the ideal communist society. "From each according to his ability" isn't from Das Kapital but from the The Communist Manifesto, an entirely different sort of work. The phrase is borrowed from the New Testament.

Marx's key economic doctrine was actually the law of surplus value. This is the capitalist exploitation of the worker, who is not adequately compensated for the units of labour power used to manufacture commodities in the production process, resulting in additional profit for the capitalist. This isn't tyranny whatsoever, just economic analysis within a historical materialist framework.

Lastly, I can't deny that there's an obvious teleology to Marx's economic analysis. The collapse of capitalism is inevitable given his dialectical materialist understanding of history. There is also an ethical imperative to ameliorate the living conditions of the working class, but Marx was vague as to how this would be achieved in the economic system that would replace capitalism. On some readings, communism would evolve peacefully from capitalism. Others envision a dictatorship of the proletariat seizing the means of production. But these were just vague speculations on Marx's part. He wasn't dogmatic about it, nor did these speculations play a major part in his economic analysis. Again, Marxism is just a tool, nothing more.

A lot of people here seem to think Das Kapital is a road map to power, but it's not. This is because most people have not read the book. The book is the use of a set of tools, Hegelian dialectic, base-superstructure, commodity fetishism, surplus value, immiseration etc. to analyze nineteenth century capitalism as Marx saw it. And to show why capitalism would eventually crumble because of its inherent contradictions. That's it. There's no guide to revolution, no talk of seizing power or talk of an ideal society. Das Kapital really is just an old, rather outdated economics textbook, like Smith's Wealth of Nations.

Like I said before, the communist state apparatus of the 20th century was not based on anything Marx said or did, but on Lenin's or Stalin's or Mao's vision of an ideal society. What they did wasn't really Marxism. Their interpretations of what became orthodox Marxist dogma are more accurately described as Marxism-Leninism, Marxism-Leninism-Stalinism, Maoism etc.

All the Covid vaxx does is turn idiots into HIV-positive AIDS patients. Only real difference between sexually transmitted HIV-positive AIDS and vaccine-induced HIV-positive AIDS (which FYI is also sexually transmitted) is the latter is much faster acting.

Just check the link, including the study. Fauci is a psychopath who enjoys torturing animals. He probably masturbates to animal abuse too. It's there for all to see. This is who zombies and clowns think is "America's doctor."

Again, Marx never left any blueprints for an ideal society. He was a philosopher and economist, not a man of action. Read some early Marx, which is largely philosophical.

All those mass graves you speak of are the work of Lenin, Stalin, Mao and so on. His "followers" were the ones who set up totalitarian police states to realize their version of what an earthly paradise would look like. Marx would have deplored their efforts.

Well, it's no secret Marx's theoretical framework appropriated the Hegelian dialectic, given the centrality of the dialectic for Hegel and the fact Hegel was Marx's single biggest influence. That Hegelian dialectical pattern is interwoven into the economic analysis of Das Kapital, IIRC on nearly every page.

I don't think he necessarily "stole" the dialectic, but saw it as an invaluable tool that clarified the relations between economic base and overarching superstructure (Marx's division of society) and explained the economic process of capitalism, the production of commodities, the circulation of money etc. Originally, the dialectic was used by Hegel in his Phenomenology of Logic and Philosophy of History, so the context was obviously different.

I don't understand your comparison of Machiavelli's Prince with Marx's Das Kapital. Das Kapital is an analysis of the underlying contradictions of 19th century capitalism, as Marx understood them, that would become so antagonistic, they would bring about the collapse of the capitalist system and the withering away of the state. Machiavelli's book offers up realpolitik for the late medieval prince, so serves an entirely different purpose.

I wouldn't exactly call Branch Covidians "psychopaths." Psychopaths are usually clever. Branch Covidians are best described as low IQ or even retards. Because only a retard would inject himself repeatedly with a dangerous experimental chemical that doesn't stop infection and transmission of the virus.

The actual NIAID-funded study is at the link. It says so right there. Yes, it's all true. Not sure what you're babbling on about.

It's not just a handful. Jews are similarly disproportionately overrepresented on the right as they are on the left and have been just as influential in shaping the politics of the right as they have the left.

What about the fact the vast majority of leftist movements in Western countries are largely white gentile in membership and leadership? What about existentialism or post-modernism? Why not focus on that? Sounds like a narrow-minded focus driven by anti-Semitic prejudice.

So you believe the old anti-Semitic canard the Jews are behind most communist tyranny and the destruction of the West. The holodomor you allude to was the result of Stalin's forced collectivization policies. Many others died because of his cruelty and paranoia. The last time I checked, Stalin was not a Jew, nor were most of the members of the Soviet communist party. It's also mostly white gentiles in the modern Western "democracies" voting for leftist policies, not their Jewish constituents.

No it's not. Marxism is just a framework for viewing economy and society. Marx, of course, never had a coherent blueprint of the ideal communist society. You can blame his supposed followers for transforming his framework into a system of totalitarian social engineering.
