(...)The Socialist/Communist ideology is the biggest killer of all ideologies and I have explained why to you so many times. It goes against human nature. We are not meant to be collectivized. We are all selfish. That's they way we are made. To go against this requires a lot of compulsion.(...)
You still do not understand what socialism is. Either it is beyond your capacity to understand, or you have decided that you were not going to understand it...
I do understand. It is people like you and Neverfail that do not.
Marx gave us the theory of dialectic materialism. It goes something like this. There is only the material world and nothing else. Society evolves according to the forces of nature. It has evolved from primitive communalism to slavery to feudalism to capitalism. The next phases are Socialism and then Communism.
My theory goes like this.
1)Democracy will lead to Socialism because as Aristotle said, the poor are the majority and the will of the majority is supreme in a democracy.
2)Socialism leads to poverty and dictatorship.
Point 2) is relevant to our topic of discussion. So I won’t talk about 1) which I spoke of previously.
Human nature makes Socialism unworkable. The law of nature is that each organism competes with others to survive and pass on its genes. Nature has made us selfish and thus Socialism unworkable. Capitalism only requires each individual to pursue its own interests.
Socialism requires each individual to sacrifice his own interest for the good of the community. Thus is against the force of nature. To go against this force you need a counterforce. That is why Socialism always end up with dictators. Stalin, Pol Pot, Hitler, Fatty Kim and Castro were all Socialist dictators. And they were also mass murderers.
This is cassowary’s version of dialectic materialism. Unlike Marx’s version, I have history to back me up.
