This is odd. Communism is extreme Left economics (so is FULL socialism but not the same thing) while fascism is full authoritarian government control of society. A leader like Joseph Stalin could be both of these things.



Why do people defend communism because it is noble in "theory"? it has been tried multiple times and doesn't work, it has killed tens of millions more than Nazis. It is the deadliest ideology and should be shot down as soon as someone tries to make any type of case for it.



let's see...
germany under a fascist leader went from the poorest and weakest country in europe to the richest and most powerful in about a decade.
communism reduced the most powerful nation on earth into pretty much a bankrupt state, granted it took almost a century, but still.

HMMMMMMM....



Communism is only "bad" by the people who make it bad. If there were no Psychopaths or we screened and tested those going into power things would be very different. Not only would capitalism most likely fail but socialism may work. There would most definitely be no billionaires and the wealth gap would contract drastically.

Why are you even on this site? It's one thing to be negative but to be negative all the damn time in all topics? C'mon, be better or be better at it!

Fascism is worse.. In the same way that being stabbed in the testicles with a rusty knife is worse than being stabbed in the testicles by a non-rusty knife.



OK, I give up. I can't read some of these posts without responding to them.

Germany was still economy troubled during World War II, and they ended WWII in ruins and destroyed. I also don't know which country you're referring to with the second one, but I assume you mean Russia, but they were far from the most powerful nation and collapsed from World War I, months before the Bolsheviks even took over.



It's not about fascism or communism. It's about the people in charge.



Extremed are always bad. No point in comparing them.

What the greatest and most successful civilizations in history have in common isn't some form of ideology. It's freedom. Freedom of thought, freedom of speech, freedom of religion. Constantinople was once the most important and wealthy city in the world. In a time where it had a lot of freedom, countless milestones in scientific research emerged. It all went downhill when some assholes decided to force islam onto the people. Just a few centuries later europe discovered secularism for themselves, told christians to leave the governments alone and went on to become the most advanced and rich continent in the world.

The US are where they are today because of freedom. That drew in some of the greatest minds of all time like Albert Einstein from which the country profited heavily. You can bet your ass Einstein wouldn't have fled to the US if it had been some fascist or communist country.

If you want a country to last long, you need discussions, you need compromises and you need freedom. Cultures can only evolve when they are in contact with other cultures. If you can't give your people freedom, sooner or later your realm will burn to the ground. Either because the people themselves get sick of extremism or because of some stupid war. History repeats itself, we can learn from that. Sadly, many people refuse to do so.
