They talk about stalin, but there is a more recent example of how communism works: For example, North Korea.

You're right, it is bullshit.

It was only 20 million. And it isn't a contest about who killed more people; capitalism or communism... or religion for some reason you mentioned... it's about the intent behind it.

And behind you may strike out, I'm not calling for a debate.

Probably?  Try definitely, considering one of the main doctrines of Communism is atheism.

Wonder how many capitalism has killed...

Not as near as many as socialism and communism has killed. (Hilter was a full socialist, Stalin was commist and killed more people than hitler did, also Chairman Mao killed quite a few people.

The numbers are staggering. Not even all the deaths in wars by Capitalism countires add up the billions of people that communist and socialists have killed.

but yet again, tumblr harbors some crazy commie lovers. :shrug: there is nothing wrong with the idea of wanting everyone to be equal, but due to humanities nature, "true" communism will never be achieved. plus communism (even on paper) also restricts peoples freedoms, which is wrong.

Capitalism isn't perfect, but its far better than any other social system we have currently, and as we all know, nothing is perfect.

To all of the communist supporters on this comment section, please explain why so many communist states JUST HAPPEN to harbor dictatorships  consistently. Case in point: Soviet Union with Joseph Stalin commencing the Purge of all opposition of his regime, leading to the deaths of several million people. Communist China with Mao Zedong and his Red Guard with their anti-freedom and anti-human rights (and please explain to me how a one-party system which condemns opposition with death is a good thing) and Mao's ingenious (at least according to communists) Great Leap Forward which brought in a death toll +20 million (according to communists, these are just statistics {heartless bastards}). Considering how communists applaud the works of communist states, I'm sure they have a limit when talking about North Korea. A Stalinist-type communist state, even mere whispers of discontent towards the North Korean government results in execution, most of the food is diverted to the elite of the nation (just look at the fat ass that is Kim Jong-un). I think this sums up North Korea's "excessive freedoms" (quoted by some communists) en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Human_ri… Also, my family has experience under communist rule. My grandfather fled Hungary during the Hungarian Revolution (if communism was so good, why did he flee from the country when communism was forcing its way into the country? Can't answer that? Thought so.) Only a heartless prick would defend those communist regimes' mass murders. Wait, it's a discussion on communism

Yes, but this time we abide by the principles that Communism was SUPPOSED to be as Karl Marx stated it and we'll might end up with a Classless, Moneyless and Stateless social order. That is called Marxism by the way, the Communism that killed 100 Million people is known as Stalinism and Leninism.

I think you mean Stalinism, which is the ideal that Stalin created and was followed by Minh and the Kim dynasty, while Mao was a Maoist.
Purest Marxism or Leninism, which is true Communism, has never existed.

Because "the purest Marxism" is impossible to introduce due to human nature.

Since the Soviet Union, its vassal states, People's Republic of China and North Korea failed in building such regimes, it should be lesson for everyone that "the true communism" cannot work as system.

As I said, they were not following Marxism. China followed Maoism, a philosophy built on Stalinism. Stalinism also inspired Vietnam and North Korea. Marxism had virtually no role in this.

And I realise Marxism is impossible, but does that mean we can't appreciate the beauty of his vision? Wonderland does not exist, but can we not marvel at how beautiful it is? Willy Wonka's chocolate factory does not exist, but can we not imagine how amazingly magical it is?

"in the period from 1921 to the present time (1954) for counter-revolutionary crimes were convicted 3,777,380 people, including to capital punishment - 642,980 people to the content of the camps and prisons for a period of 25 years old and under - 2,369,220, to exile and expulsion - 765,180 people."

It is from the document that the Prosecutor General of the USSR gave Nikita Khrushchev in 1954

Oh, but that's not true. His first wife, Ekaterina Svanidze, died in 1907 of tuberculosis. His second wife, Nadezhda Alliluyeva, committed suicide. As for his son, Yakov Dzhugashvili ... Well, "a soldier on the Marshal do not change." The second son, Vasily Stalin, was arrested after the death of Stalin.

First Wife's funeral, he said "I don't think I shall love again" 1 week later, he had the wife's whole family executed. After his son Yakov tired to commit suicide, he fail. Stalin is quoted with saying "My own son can't even shoot a gun straight!" And, during the war, his son was captured by Nazi troops, held in prison, Stalin was offered a prisoner exchange, he declined, and his son died in a Nazi prison.

Hey, the fact that Stalin and pol pot killed millions was because they had radical political views, not their religious beliefs (or lack of them). Hitler wasn't atheist. Atheism kills far less than Xianity. God killed everyone in the flood (allegedly), and witch trials weren't caused by atheism. Atheists don't start wars when they argue over who doesn't believe in god more (what?) Atheists are arguably better than Christians. There is no such place as Westboro atheist hall, as an added note for hatred. Chick fil a doesn't hate gays because of atheism, too. Your religion isn't my government.

Have you ever studied the events that took place during Mexico's La Reforma?

Atheism was behind an attempt to purge religion from the nation - forcefully. Under the name of atheism people were killed.

Looks like atheism has some blood on it's hands if you ask me. Atheism is no more innocent than any religion or spiritual belief; unfortunately atheism has given birth to some repressive ideas and dangerous potentials. I find it annoying that people use atheism as crutch to decouple themselves from any faults.
