my point was in fact about the tyranny of the majority... that's what formed the soviet union... you weren't aware?
the thing you so called "socialists" don't get about "socialism" and communism is that at its core its about stripping away rights to reduce people down to the lowest common denominator... for "equality"
which any sensible person realises right away is not desirable in the least if you actually want to help people, especially the poor
i'm still waiting to hear about how hitler privitised everything and yet still controlled the economy btw
Lol so first you believe that the guy who allied with the German capitalists is a socialist and now you believe that the Soviet Union is an example of tyranny of the majority.
Can you let us know where you get your Kool-Aid? It sounds like some good stuff.
Edit: Oh also nice doublethink, there you agree with me that democracy in the Soviet Union was eroded by authoritarianism and now here you try to say it was democratic.
"Lol so first you believe that the guy who allied with the German capitalists is a socialist"
lmao... ok i'll change my question... do you agree that hitler controlled the economy of germany through his government?
after you've answered that question tell me whether its socialism or capitalism that cedes control of the means of production to government
"now you believe that the Soviet Union is an example of tyranny of the majority."
now there's really only two ways that i can interpret this since you have acknowledged that the soviet union was democratic
either you don't think that the soviet union was a tyranny which would be a tragedy
or you're just being dishonest
" Oh also nice doublethink, there you agree with me that democracy in the Soviet Union was eroded by authoritarianism"
the only way you could say that is if you didn't read my post... i mean you quoted it... did you not read it?
so are you really trying to tell me though that you don't understand that a democracy can be authoritarian?
you don't think that its possible for the majority of people in a society to vote the rights of the people in their society away to government?
