Understanding Communism and Capitalism
#41
You guys can mix and match all you wish. Only problem is that when you fail to make the fine distinctions, it becomes impossible to tell them apart when it is necessary.

So now Stalin was a fascist, Hitler was a communist, they were all tyrannical(which was certainly true), and they were all of one happy little family.

For my own sense of mental order, I will stick with the accurate definition. Stalin was a Communist, and Hitler was a Fascist. Thank you very much! :roll:

HE can't be a true communist if he was the leader of a soviet state.

In truth, you are somewhat correct. However it is closer to Communism than anything else. The reason for this is that Communism is Socialism taken to it's ultimate conclusion. What that means is this. Not only are the means of production owned by the State, but ALL Real property(land) is also owned by the state as well.

However, modern Communism is not really Marxism in it's purest form. If you are interested in learning the truth about Marx, you will find that he was not really the demon that the Right would love for you to think. Jude Wanniski does the best job of explaining Marx of anyone I have read to date.

If you are interested, try reading his five part essay, Karl Marx Revisited: A Fluid Society. Here is Part II, Part III, Part IV, and Part V. Oh, and don't forget his notes, which provide personal insight.

I highly recommend that everyone read this series of essays.

Stalin was not a Fascist. He was not a Communist. He was an amoral pragmatist who killed pure Communists and any apparatchik who would not willingly bastardize whatever pure -ism he might agree with in order to serve Stalin best.

This is a pretty accurate assessment of most tyrants.
