This is a pretty good example of Marxist schizophrenia that passes for 'science' in the socialist circles.
In every one of my previous posts pointing out the murderous results of Marxism, its defenders have railed against me proclaiming that the millions killed in the name of Marx is completely irrelevant. I've been informed that Marxist luminaries such as Lenin/Stalin/Mao/ and company didn't practice what Marx advocated at all. That if I wanted to be fair I had to look at the successes of Kerala (as if any state in India could be considered 'successful'), or Madagascar. Or some other third-world banana republic hell hole. I've been informed that I was completely ignorant of real Marxism and that I was merely a narrow-minded so and so.
And now we have this poster saying that, yes, violence is necessary for the attainment of Marxist goals.
Well, is it or isn't it necessary? Do Marxists know their own minds, or do they enjoy babbling about their esoteric theories for the sake of babbling?
For the poster; Have you ever shot anyone? Have you ever seen a person who has just been shot?
