Sorry to burst the propaganda bubble, but Communism involves no state.
No state = no state to "take" your cows.

This is what Communism means, literally. I'm not putting my opinion on the matter up for viewing, but merely cleansing the window that this post soiled.

Stalin took, and maintained, Russia in the "Dictatorship of the Proletariat".
Russia never achieved true Communism, nor Socialism for that fact, due to the affronted fact.
But this is going purely of political philosophy, not Fox News.

Stalin morphed communism into what it is today, what your referring to is now considered Marxism, at least from what i was taught.

You can't morph a philosophy and still masquerade it as what it has become.

Marx and Engels, following in the Hegelian tradition, brought history into their philosophy, believing that the world was going to go through stages, the "dialects".
Russia NEVER achieved the Socialist stage as it was wrenched down by the ego of Stalin. But in all honesty the Revolution and the hopes of Communism were marred when the Bolsheviks limited dissent among the revolutionaries.

You mean by "Stalin morphed communism into what it is today"; "We have been taught that anything other than Capitalism is grim, look at how badly Communist leaders treat their citizens, look how poor Communist countries are".
Stalin certainly tarnished the name of Communism, but he could, literally, NEVER morph its philosophical contents.
User avatar #10 to #9 - Kennyalways (07/11/2013) [-]
no the philosophical part remained the same, but the political part is a different story. The political rule i was taught was Marxism if followed through, but is known as Communism if run asit has throughout history
#28 to #10 - captainreposty (07/11/2013) [-]
Who was teaching you these things? Did you pay them?
If you really want me to, I could give you a fairly detailed explanation of Marxism, or if you don't fancy listening to me, I could provide a few short videos explaining Marxism/Communism & their differences.
Not knowing something is hardly a reason for me to have a go at you, and I apologize. And I believe education is more nurturing than condemnation.
But I don't think you've quite got a grasp on the differences.

Stalin didn't tarnish the name of communism, capitalists tarnished Stalin and then people started putting two and two together.
#30 to #29 - captainreposty (07/11/2013) [-]
Look man, as you can clearly see, I abhor Capitalism.
But as a history/political scholar I must intervene.
Stalin did some terrible, terrible ****** up paranoid **** .
He was never meant to succeed Lenin, but still managed to.
He was a manipulative piece of **** who never had Communism at heart.
#31 to #30 - valeriya (07/11/2013) [-]
Well, let's take a look at what Stalin did for the Russian people;
1. He pretty much brought Russia from being a backwards peasant nation to a superpower whilst spreading the socialist revolution which he'd earlier said would have to wait (See socialism in one country).
1.1: Industrailized Russia and made it on a par with most western nations in terms of Industrial capacity.
1.2: Socially liberated a lot of people, Eg Abortion was legalized, then illegalized then in the end they just taxed you for not having children.
2. Kept socialism going, despite the constant threat of invasion from the capitalists, although his successor was a traitor who really should've been purged, you've got to remember Stalin never touched the Marxist-Leninist he just occasionally purged from other factions.
3. Lead Russia through World war 2, arguably he ****** up at first but still Russia won.
4. Complemantary Stalin did nothing wrong, and one thing you have to realize about socialism and the whole holodomor "genocide" is that Ukrainian nationalists went and burned crops and slaughtered live stock, so they effectively contributed nothing so naturally they received nothing.

I've studied Russian history, fairly extensively over the last 5/6 years, and I know all the mentioned facts you have highlighted, and I am not really arguing against any of them, except 1.2.
But what you're identifying here is the "Dictatorship of the Proletariat", a necessary step that preludes the Socialist step. Stalin did indeed modernize the USSR, and in a remarkable time as well.
But obviously you know about the borrowing of US Tractors (Caterpillars), etc. that aided them in such progress, which would be the antithesis of Communism.
I hope this has cleared things up? I can go into more detail, but it seems you already know the history, but you've just misplaced the philosophical piece to this jig-saw; a piece which could be presented as either without the proper knowledge behind it.

I just see in the west a lot of historical revisionism around stalin.

That's why one must appease all the pallets in ones literary banquet.

I have quite a few friends who have moved to Russia for a few years now, and they send me (translated) news from over there.

I live in the UK most the year but for the rest of it I live in Russia, before that I lived in Ukraine, and yes it's quite normal for people to cater to their audiences.

It's impossible and revisionary non-sense to believe communism works with no state, you are essentially saying that people are inheritably good and will work together without an collective organize force to actually achieve anything and keep people in check.

There needs to be a strong authoritarian government for communism to be achieved in a nation, many issues which faced the early Soviets with famines were farmers not willing to work together with the government with giving up their crops, and when you have a nation working together and the producers of your food are failing to do so it causesa wide variety of issues.
Stalin's authoritarian actions were necessary for the survival of his nation, how he reacted to the organize farming and his purges were dumb though, but he was a realist. Unlike your retarded bastardized theory which is derived from closed minded simpletons crafted in your head in a war against American Conservatives.

North Korea, Cuba, Soviet Union are all prime examples of Communism will ever get achieved besides in small communes. I believe the Western media has portrayed their examples bad though, as they focused on famines not how they improved their own quality of life, became industrial, and imrpoved literacy and education rates in all examples, I think Cuba is the best prime example right now
#58 to #27 - captainreposty (07/11/2013) [-]
I never mentioned, in the original post, any state/country that claimed to be Communist.
What you just described was the "Dictatorship of the Proletariat", which was a necessary step on the way to Socialism, which was just one step behind Communism.

Marx's definition, ergo THE definition, of Communism was based on these dialectics.
I agree with everything you've said, & I think Cuba will be the next place I visit (after Japan), but on the actual details and not deeds, Communism cannot work with a state.
The people of a certain country would all realise the actions needed to maintain their society and would do so willingly, but only after modernistation (a process which must, in Marx's writings, begin in the Capitalist dialect)

Philosophy major, right?
As a philosophical idea communism works with no state.
As a practical option communism is possible as a fully distributed post need society model. Which means you need collectors, organizers and distributors, which however you call them function as a government bodies.
#69 to #42 - anon (07/11/2013) [-]
But all those things are performed by each person itself, so each individual would be a government.

The capitalist system is broken. The few rich people running the country with the interest of the rich in mind. Then there is the fact that the banks can basically control the world at this point. Socialism all the way
User avatar #11 to #3 - fargone (07/11/2013) [-]
Socialism wouldn't work for the exact same reason that capitalism doesn't work very well. Greed. If anyone is ever able to overcome greed in every member of their entire population, it'll be a hell of a lot more impressive than their system of government.
User avatar #15 to #11 - adu (07/11/2013) [-]
Actually, traditional capitalism works because no transaction is made between two individuals without consent from both sides, which means that both parties have something to gain. What you're thinking of is either Venture Capitalism, American Corporation, or Bureaucratism.
User avatar #18 to #3 - Ruspanic (07/11/2013) [-]
Crony capitalism is a problem. The rich should not have so much influence in politics.

"Traditional capitalism" as seen in the content is the best system in existence, because it maximizes freedom, efficiency, and overall wealth.
#25 to #18 - tomthehippie (07/11/2013) [-]
"traditional Capitalism" is free market capitalism, which is what has allowed corporations to grow to the point where they practically own governments.

Try knowing what you are talking about.
User avatar #70 to #25 - Ruspanic (07/11/2013) [-]
There's nothing wrong with having large corporations that make a lot of profit. It's the "practically owning governments" part that's wrong, and that's what I mean by crony capitalism. They hire lobbyists and fund political ads and campaigns through PACs and more recently SuperPACs. Sometimes the lobbyists actually write the bills that are presented to Congress, because Congressmen themselves don't have time to do that sort of thing.

The government is the one institution that should be completely socialist, i.e. owned and controlled by the public and not by private interests.

Don't be an asshole.

The term "communist state" was used by americans, the socialist countries never called themselves that. And let's admit it, americans aren't exactly famous for being very smart.

In socialism they both have cows but now they can't reproduce since they both only have 1 and the economy stagnates. later one cow dies and split the other cow in half. Hooray for progress

Socialism is all about working together for a mutually beneficial agreement you dillweed. It just doesn't rely heavily on money and risky investments, whilst allowing the majority to stay equal.
