: F: The only reason that I posted that article was becase Nickel Jack claimed that Zimbabwe was a successful socialist nation, along with other shining examples such as Nicaragua etc.
: Qx: I doubt that. You just needed to find an article to serve as a mirror image of your own out-dated Cold War rantings.
From Nickel Jack, in the post entitled Primitive Communism.
"on teh subject of that chimera, 'totalitarianism' - God, what a dated, 1950's type word- your calim that communist societies are invariably totalitarian needs but one counter-example to refute it, sincve it's a categorical statement. To my knowledge, I've supplied many. Chile?
Bengal? Kerala? Guyana? Nicaragua? Zimbabwe? South Africa? Bissau? Burkina Faso? Nepal? Hell, even Yugoslavia?"
Think we can agree that citizens who are commanded by their leader to attack a particular racial group could be characterized as totalitarian? If not, how about a despotship? Maybe a loonybin?
But your right, I did lose my composure. There's no call for that.
Given the competition.
