The New York Times recently published an “opinion piece” from radical feminist Vivian Gornick where she spoke glowingly of communism, describing it as “inspirational” ideology despite it being responsible for the deaths of 100,000,000+ people. Why does the mainstream media continually publish vapid articles like “When Communism Inspired Americans” which only serve to whitewash the bloody history of a murderous ideology?

    And when Communism put on the cloak of religion (the People’s Temple, Jim Jones) it ended the same way.

    In modern societies, intelligence has become a reverse selection, because intelligent parents invest more in their kids and have fewer. The selection you mentioned only happens in extremely poor societies with no welfare state. Long gone.

    A good person must resits marxism at every turn…even if it means death. Resist mentally, resist intellectually, resist morally, and resist physically if necessary. Don't give in to the jackboot thugs.

    Moa Zedong let a hundred flowers bloom is to the education unions anti-communist speech of the capitalist running dogs and a direct threat to leading Lenin-marxist dialectic materialism of Michelle's cardboard food and group think of self selected soft and brown warriors of room 101.

    We know Bolsheviks did 2 things, criminalized antisemitism and killed millions of Christians.
    Stefan talks for an hour about communism but leaves out the most important factor, ze Jew.

    Stefan, the following sentence was REMOVED from the original article, but I'm not sure what it meant:
    "Communists had a noble cause until they learned the truth meme"
    I tried Google cahce etc to see of the rest of the article was changed, but no luck. Obviously it embarrassed the bosses there.

    Do not make the mistake to set real communism equal to the farce the Russians made out of this idea after the Russian revolution!
    Real communism is what Jesus preached: do not divide between "mine" and "yours" but let all use all resources commonly. Especially when it comes to share the money earned by common labor: share equally instead giving a huge part of it to the one(s) who "own" the tools you all (!) used for this work.
    But for the Americans it seems enough to know what McCarthy told them: Communism is "godless", and communism is "un-American". Period. No more thinking needed.

    In regards to the Spanish Inquisition; of the 350yrs only between 3-5k people were executed at most, non by the church, and only less than 100 were tried as a witch. That's 1 person a month. Communism killed about 200 million in half a century worldwide. The comparison is no where close.

    Steps to becoming Communist

    1) Corrupt the young: get them away from religion
    2) Break down the old moral virtues
    3) Encourage civil disorder and a soft government attitude towards crime
    4) Divide the people into hostile groups (race, religion, etc.)
    5) Get the people's mind off their government by focusing their attention on athletics, sex, etc.
    6) Get control of all media
    7) Destroy people's faith in their leaders
    8) Cause the registration of all firearms and eventually confiscate

    So Soviet Union was first started because of the famine and holding the farmers down they get pissed off and a civil war breaks out and it leaded into the first Communist State that lowered the starvation with 80%! And then they killed 1/4 of its own population at the same time having a big red army were all the peasants were hanging during the World War with loaded weapons in their hand and yeah, they got slaughtered, by Finland, not Soviet. A state cant kill 1/4 of its own population and if they even was doing that, could it happen again in a western country that has developed smart-phones, twitter, facebook and all other social media? No ffs people would get pissed off if their state was executing 1/4 of its population! By the way 1/4 of Soviets population had to move to other parts of the country because of the famine and somehow ended up in the "death-toll statistic" but yeah sure why not the idea of Stalin n Kruschev sitting in their office forming their army that probably was 1/8 to kill double as many people in the their country as themself. And Gulag deaths should be counted as "communism faulth" as much as people dying in american prisons should be counted as "capitalism vicitims" then it would sure be a biiiiig number! Just because american prisons dont offer working out in the snow they should not be counted then… As I wrote earlier (yeah I double talk alot :D) In todays society, could those imaginary death-stats happen when we are enlightened with wikipedia and youtube? Fuck just look at Chile 1973 when the first socialist won in a democratic election, yeah the communist got a big erection from that and Kissinger had to show up with his butthole in front of it by destroying the best opportuniment in our history to witness if Socialism really worked in a democratic state. ..

    Yeah, todays Russia that turned into being Europes biggest pimp with the church and state selling them together was far much better than Sovjet that saved the countrys population to die from starving under the Tsar-Empire. fkn idiots that wank off to Trumps "hey I got a dick"-politics.

    You should make a video about "The Truth of the Spanish Inquisition". You will find out that it's another hoax, spread by the anglo saxons, just like the Holocaust. The inquisition was far worse in Central Europe, than in Spain.

    @stefanmolyneux, love your show and the informative objectivity first off. now a question: when you speak of the "genetic free market", are you only viewing the Western more developed societies? I don't think the same rules apply to what are officially seen as, "third-world" nations. The poorest countries pretty much have an unlimited number of children per family and comprise the human majority on this planet. Sure the politics of such countries tend to lean more towards instability and dictatorship, I'm just curious if you have taken that into consideration. Thank you again for the information you share!

    Communism does not kill people. Capitalism does not kill people. People kill people. Voluntary capitalism is possible, voluntary communism is possible. The widespread support of monopolies that force people to pay for their goods and services is the actual problem. Stefan! Statism is the causation, communism is the correlation.

    Why do I care? Videos like these delay the transition to a voluntary society. Humans want to live in communities that reflect their values and this video spreads the assumption that types of cooperation are not possible without government. The article Stefan reviews is shitty enough to be a strawman. During 60s and 70s, Americans actually were inspired by communism, but not the communism Stefan talks about in this video. It was very important for these same Americans to dispel the association with Soviet Communism, specifically to stop people like Stefan from misunderstanding them. Stalin exploited the demand for sharing and community by enslaving an entire population.

    Anyone still disagree with me? Imagine Stalin used roads as the justification for genocide. Would you rant for an hour about how evil it is to build roads because all roads were historically built using violence and therefore roads are evil? I would hope you understand that even though all roads in history were built using violence, roads are not evil, but enslaving and murdering people to build them is.

    A monopolar world is as imposible and dangerous as a monopolar view in people, like those sjw feminazis you know. So growing in conciusnes and maturing as a society is the only way wich can take us to the next milenium safely, any other radical monoanything view will only bring destruction and regresion.

    Only onmature humans need to be controled, coerced and odained. A society full of mature and concius beings needs not of authorities nor law, an utopy today but still true.
    Also, no government rules and makes laws under only one political view, they use whatever they can from wherever, as long as it works its ok. So all countries are a mixture of sistems, laws, views and shit, from each other and who knows where. So comunism can inspire, as democracy, monarchy and even tirany or else.

    Ok Sefan, I get your point on comunism, feminism, radicalism and shit. But here you are acting as a recalcitrant feminist denouncing the evils of comunism instead of patriarchy, weird huh?.
    Now, far from is to say comunism is innocent or free of guilt, as democracy isnt or any other human political system.
    You know Stefan, greeks didnt voted, right they didnt. They had senates and authorities elected by a machine, yes a machine. Why? Cause inmature humans are the bane and originn of any sistem.
